About this creation
Hey there everybody!
Let's start off with this: Does anyone have Portal 2 on the PC and has a (functioning) Steam Account?
Okay then, with that out of the way, here's my entry to round 4 (I think) for the Periodic Table Bionicle Contest.
Species: Toa (Dark)
Occupation: None. Wanders around doing whatever he pleases.
Moc Status: Assembled
Random fact:he is based on a specific Extra Terrestrial Species from a video game. Wort Wort Wort.
Story: Iodyn was a normal Toa that protected a small Ga-matoran trading encampment from Rahi. During this period of time, he was attacked by Tarkava in the middle of the night and dragged into the ocean as the matoran slept. His weapon was left on the shore, on a crate. Weaponless, he was dragged deeper and deeper into the ocean. He continued to struggle, but he was weak without his sword. As he was being dragged, he happened to pass a Katana. Naturally, he grabbed onto it, but, in a way, it also grabbed on to him. He discovered that he was literally attached to the blade, and slowly it began seeping dark energy into his body. The original owner had trained for years to wield that Katana, and Iodyn had never encountered a blade like the one he currently wielded, so it overtook his mind. He quickly killed the Tarakava with his new-found weapon, and continued onwards to destroy the encampment he once protected. The energy overtook his mind, and his color was changed to black. He was deemed a threat by the Turaga, after the news of this change reached them.
Several Toa, including some of his original friends,were sent to defeat him, but were all defeated. No bodies were ever discovered in the towns he destroyed, all seemingly disappeared without a trace.
In one attack, a matoran (who was in the mines of Onu-koro)saw Iodyn attacking the other miners. He described, to the horror of those listening, that the Katana absorbed the souls of the ones he killed, and the remaining bodies simply disintegrated. He was never captured, but his activity seemed to dwindle down until there were no more reports of his attacks.
Although, after a certain assassin became the focus of the Turaga, he once again became active. Although, this time he had an assistant.
Front view Again.
The mask. I got this in a lot of parts I got off of eBay.
The left arm.
Lower left arm. (holding the Katana)
Upper Right arm. (Sorry for the blurry picture)
Lower Right arm. (Sorry for yet another blurry picture...)
The upper back.
The lower back.
He has a tail, like some of my other mocs.
Back of the legs.
Front of the legs.
Lower legs (front). He is completely custom except for the feet.
Just a picture of the feet. Pretty pointless.
Back to the torso (I need to order my pictures in a better way...) These are the inner workings, without the two wing pieces.
Now for some poses!
The casual "grab your face pose". If only I had a camera that could take 3D pictures...
And, last but not least, a picture of a dead Iodyn. Not like he's dead, maybe he's just playing dead... I don't know...
Iodyn: Who are you?
Revenance: I'm Marco's Self-moc! Primary Self moc. Primary...
Iodyn: So, I'm the secondary?
Revenance: I guess, but the word secondary is the important part.
Revenance: Just remember, you will always be the secondary. Never the primary, just the secondary. Just the secondary. I'm going now, but just remember, you're the secondary.
Iodyn: Well, that was odd...
Iode: Hey, is it my turn to be posted?
Iodyn: I guess so....
Occupation: Fighter (formerly), Iodyne's assistant.
Weapons: His fists.
Moc Status: Assembled
Random fact: He is a master in close quarters combat. Also, even though he's supposed to be evil and seclusive, he continues to attempt to hit on female Toa, which has become a constant annoyance to Iodyn.
Story. Iode does not really have a story. He was a matoran raised to become a fighter. After winning several competitions, he claimed that he could not be beaten and challenged people to fights. His bet was that he would be a servant to whoever could beat him. Long story short, he was beaten.
Now he serves as a guard/assistant to Iodyn.
His custom head. I really went overboard with it, but it looks pretty good. (to me, that is.)
His upper legs.
A determined pose, I guess.
This guy is probably one of my most pose-able mocs. He can be posed more easily than Glados.
These are some very interesting creations! Iodyn has some nice part usages, like his mask! He looks overall pretty powerful. Iode is cool, he has a fine color sheme and again, the masks suits him very well! Good luck in the contest!
Looks kinda like the movie version of starscream, if you ask me. Great choice of Kanohi. Also great backstories! also, I have steam, I might be able to get a mic working, and I have Portal 2. My steam account name is Ever0x
Quoting L.A. Miranda
Although Iodyn has a great design and is very well-worked... Iode is the best of the page. I really love him, head and chest are great! But, why he lost one of his left hand's fingers?
Oh shoot, I forgot to write about that. I was in a rush when posting this. So here it is: his finger was cut off after being ambushed by a rival fighter's team. Whoops, thanks for reminding me about that...
Nice! Iodyn's upper body is amazing! His upper arms are good too! I don't like his lower arms or legs that much though, the legs look just a little thin. I love Iode! He's perfect! The custom head is amazing! :)
