About this creation


Hey guys

Main picture bad Photoshop FTW!

My entry the 2012 BIO CUP!


New moc for ya today! This is my entry to the Eliminatories of the 2012 BIO CUP! Enjoy!

Description:

Title "Toa" of Life
Element Life
Mask Kanohi Ignika (formerly)
Tools Lifeblade, Midak Skyblaster, Skyboard (all formerly)
Status Nonexistent
Pronunciation Ig-NEE-kah

After being used by Matoro, the Kanohi Ignika fell into the Swamp of Secrets. Inspired by the courage that the Toa of Ice had displayed, the Kanohi Ignika decided to experience life as a hero, forming a Toa's body and weapons for itself using organic molecules from the swamp. It also created a Skyboard based off the vehicles in Mahri Nui. Calling itself "Toa Ignika", the mask sensed the Toa Nuva fighting above in the Stalactite Villages and flew up to join them.
Toa Ignika located the Toa Nuva Phantoka as they traveled toward the Shadow Leech Hive. There, he saved the three Toa and three Av-Matoran by speeding up the life processes of a Rahi, which was about to assault them. Stunned by Toa Ignika's potential, the Toa Nuva welcomed him into their group, although they were not aware of his true identity, nor did they recognize the mask.


The Kanohi Ignika creating a body for itself
Later, in the Shadow Leech Hive, Toa Ignika was portrayed as a giant monster in a mental illusion cast by Makuta Mutran. Seeing him as an enemy, the Toa and Matoran unknowingly lashed out at their ally. Feeling confused and angry, Toa Ignika decided his companions were not worthy of life and sped up their aging. Realizing that the monster was an illusion, the Toa ineffectively pleaded with Toa Ignika to stop killing them. Pohatu then used his power to cause the ground beneath Toa Ignika to erupt. Distracted, the effects were ceased as the Toa of Life was pinned to the wall by Pohatu, who released him after a stunned realization that Toa Ignika was wearing the Mask of Life.
Toa Ignika was then captured along with the other Toa when Antroz, Chirox and Vamprah ambushed them. He was later freed by Pohatu, and helped to destroy the Shadow Leech vats by smashing through them using the shared power of the Kakama Nuva. Toa Ignika then used his powers to kill the living stone that supported the hive, sending it crashing down into the swamp.
During a fierce battle in the sky, Toa Ignika was attacked by Icarax and was almost thrown off his Skyboard. Angered, he devolved the Makuta back into a biomechanical being using his energies. Defeating Icarax, Toa Ignika guarded him while the Toa Nuva left for the swamp, barring him from pursuing the Toa. Icarax later revealed to the mask of his ability to drain the universe of all life, in an attempt to enrage and confuse the Ignika. He abandoned Icarax to reveal this dire information to his newfound allies.


Toa Ignika sacrificing itself to awaken Mata Nui
Toa Ignika eventually developed his speech and explained to the Toa Nuva that he was not just wearing the Mask of Life - he was the Mask of Life. He further confirmed to them of his countdown to the death of the universe, which could only be stopped by awakening Mata Nui. Toa Ignika followed the Toa Nuva into the Codrex, and watched as they began the steps to revive the Great Spirit, given to them by the previously collected Keystones. The process was too slow however as the countdown became critical, and the Toa Nuva realized that the Ignika could provide the energy needed immediately. Toa Ignika knew that doing so would end his existence as a living being, and debated on whether or not to sacrifice his new body to awaken the Great Spirit. After some deliberation and encouragement by Tahu and Gali, he chose to awaken Mata Nui, its body disintegrating with energy while accomplishing the task.
The Kanohi Ignika remained in the Codrex, amidst the now-restarting Energy Storms. However, Teridax had taken over the body of Mata Nui, and was in need of a place to retain Mata Nui's recently expelled spirit. Knowing of the Kanohi Ignika's potential to obliterate the universe, Teridax placed the mind and spirit of Mata Nui in the Kanohi Ignika, and expelled it from his body. Mata Nui's mind soon dominated the Ignika, and the mask continued to drift throughout the universe, waiting for a chance to return.

So here we go! Begin the voyage of awesomeness!

Feet. Same as original.

Lower legs I really like this design. Nice, simple, and very flexible.

Upper legs, same as original.

Custom waist FTW. Well actually it's because I ran out of rahkshi waists. What do you thing about it?

Rear end.

Stomach/ waist to torso connection. Lots of tires.

Torso. Nice greebles.

Moar Side Armour!

Back. Still has the same gimmick as the original where you could connect a matoran figure to the back to TEAM UP AND BATTLE FOR POWER!

The gimmick.

Now we switch to text above the image!

Remove the back an you can see one of my favourite torso designs i've done. I really like the ease of this torso and it looks pretty good too.

Upper arms.

They have the same dagger piece on them as the original.

Lower arms

Midak Skyblaster.

Sword.

Epic mask!

There he is looking pretty snazzy.

Ninja!

Gimmick in action

Side view.

Face to face with the original set.

Full shot.

Back to text underneath!

Gimmick on the set.

Looking cool

Got a bit of a cramp

Gold mask poster shot!

From the front with the gold mask

Just looking epic. But what Toa Ignika remake would be complete without his...

Skyboard!

While the original skyboard was nice it need three things. Fire, lights, and SPINNING FIRE! As Chronos Omega said this is either going to be ridiculously awesome or just ridiculus! I hope it's the first! Please enjoy this short video demonstrating the electric functions of the model.



Now onto the pictures.


Epic side shot.

Rear flames! Something the original was severely lacking in.

Foldable landing gear

Back.

Nose

Mine and the original.

Original

Mine is much larger and less curvy.

Back of the original

Back of mine

Mount up! Looking like a boss!

Speeding throughout as the super OP Toa he is. (Op: Over Powered)

Epic!

Oh no Chirox is attacking!

Owned!

Double the Toa... Double the Awesome!

Cossy! What are you doing! You stole Ignika's skyboard!

Hey i'm tired flying around!


Here's the set picture for comparison.


Commentary

If you skipped to the end go back and watch the video. It's worth the scrolling!

Well hoped you enjoyed the moc! Really worked hard on this. The lights and motors were really hard in build the board as hiding the wires was a pain the the rear end. Fun to photograph and a really swooshable moc. I'm really excited to bring this to Brickcon this year. I'm going to build a stand and leave the electrics running. I hope it looks enough like the original to pass. I'm really going all out on this side armour thing. It's actually a nice challenge.


So hope you enjoyed.

Please leave feedback to tell me how I did.

Phosphorus.

You get 6 for the toa remake and another 3 for the vehicle remake. 9/10!
  June 13, 2012
For one, I think that thin, elongated torso is below you. You showed us better. And if you had pimped it up a bit more, you could have easily scored a 9. I'm sorry if I sounded overly critic, but I was looking forward to your entry ever since you asked about the board. But no worries, with an average 8 I'm sure you'll have no problems for this round :)

Quoting Yuri Fassio High marks for adding a cool revamped skyboard, and cool character. But COME ON! I know for a fact that you could have done better! 8/10
Thanks for the praise! Any chance you could tell me what I could do better. I'm planning on revamping him.

http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/13655 Here's a group I'm in that specializes in photo editing. Any specific questions you have can be answered there. As far as your youtube background goes, it looks like you need a bit of help getting a close-cropped edge around your MOCs. What program are you using?

Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ Fairly nice, though a bit simple in some places, like the Inika limbs. I like that lower leg design however. LOL, cracked sockets suck. :P
Cracked Sockets are the worst!

Quoting Gale Winthrope Fantastic, work!! I loved the original Ignika and this brings about the same nostalgic feel. Beautiful skyboard. I think if the set had really been like this, Bionicle wouldn't have stopped because they'd be racking in the dough!
They would take showers in coins! Anyone want me to put a different figure on it and make it a cuusoo project?

Quoting bert scott I love it! Though the torso is a little long for my taste I still love it. I like how u made his board bigger to mach his height. Overall he is great so keep up the good work and good luck in the BIO-Cup!
My torso's are always long. I really wanted a larger board as I found the original way to small.

Quoting Cody G Sadly no. I'll be in college during the week so I'll only be able to attend the public days. :/ Oh, and the photoshopped main pic is actually pretty good. If you need any tips for photo editing, feel free to ask me.
Boy do i need tips. I'm not very good by I've tried out a new background for my youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/user/ToaPhosphorusTV?feature=mhee It's a bit messy but would you mind having a look at it? Also i'm displaying again but i'm only there for the public days too!

Quoting Cody G Excellent work! The Toa is very good, but with the skyboard it is brought up to great. I hope we'll bump into each other at Brickcon this year! (oh, and major mask envy of your three Ignikas)
Yeah I hope to see you there. Are you displaying this year?

Quoting Dragonax lord of all things black and creepy Okay, that sky-board is the best designed, best looking, most perfect example of Power-Functions integration I have ever seen. I have nothing negative to say about it. at all. Best ever.

Quoting Chopperskull ! Great Job on the character, looks fairly accurate to the original and.... OH WHAT ?! A SKYBOARD TOO ! Wow. Impressive. Nice functions too. the only thing I don't like on the Skyboard is that it's too flat on top. Needed some armor pieces or something to curve it a bit. Awesome functions on it as well. I actually like the character more, but the board is a great job for the scale :D Awesome attempt at both :D
Yeah thats my one thing I don't like on this moc is the flatness.

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant My first complaint would have been that it looked too much like a toa inika - but, hang on. It is one! Your work has done amazing justice to the figure, but the true excellence is in the skyboard. Power functions just make the entire thing so much more fun. Where did you get the lights from?
Thanks very much this comment just made my day! Oh and you can buy them on lego shop at home.com
