Zerenia
BCBS September round entry. The category was "full evolution", basically build a matoran, Toa, and turaga. This will have to be a quick-y, my teacher beckons. And you do not want to cross her...
About this creation
Sorry for the bad photos. I took them all days apart, and the sun wouldn't give much light on all those days.

Link to the BCBS.

Oh yeah, and I couldn't get a pic of them all together since they required each other's parts, so I figured my buddy icon would do. There is a big one for anyone who ever wanted a closer look.

Bio:
Zerenia was never a normal one. As an Elemental, she, unlike most matoran, housed the powers of three elements. As matoran, Elementals have varied control over their three elements. The stronger the matoran, the stronger their power.
But, when they become Toa, they revert to only one element. This elements powers are increased tenfold by being focused.
When an Elemental becomes a turaga, they lose all elemental control, but regain the colors they possessed as a matoran.
Many see Elementals as outsiders. They are rarely seen outside of their hiding places. Zerenia was different.
As a matoran, she was exceedingly outgoing. She went to live with the Onu-matoran on Mata-Nui. It took several years for her to become accepted by the people. But after Zerenia captured a Nui-Jaga escaping from the archives, she became a hero. The turaga gave her a Toa stone.
Her life as a Toa is widely unknown. Shortly after becoming a Toa, she was sent to see if they were any other weak points where something could escape down in the archives. A day after she went down, the entrance and many levels collapsed. The matoran dug and dug, but they found nothing. Zerenia was thought to be dead. After a farewell ceremony in the center of town, the people thought only of Zerenia in legends or fairytales.
Zerenia discovered something in the archives. Something dangerous. A small hole in a wall. This hole was not your average wanna-be cavern. It gave off serious amounts of energy.
As Zerenia investigated this hole a being appeared behind her.
"What are you doing?" it asked.
Zerenia jumped drawing her weapon and spinning around to face it.
The being laughed, a deep hearty laugh.
Zerenia looked at the young child before her.
"Do you really not know what your looking at?" The child asked.
Zerenia looked back at the hole.
"It is dangerous to have this here. I need to close it. A portal of this size and power can only destroy things." She said.
The child nodded.
"Well. I know how to close it. But you'll have to trust me." he said.
Zerenia looked down at him. She didn't think she should trust him, but if he really knew how to close the portal, he was worth listening to.
"What must I do?" She asked.
The child looked at her a moment before he began.
"The portal is highly unstable. It you were you go through it, it would cause a power surge strong enough for it to collapse on itself."
Zerenia thought the child was going to say that.
"The power surge may also destroy this place!" She said.
The child nodded.
"It may. But it would do less damage than if you left this open." he said calmly.
Zerenia looked back at the portal.
"It is your choice. I merely offered a solution." The child said.
Zerenia looked back to the child, a question popping into mind.
But he was gone.
No where.
Only dark empty dirt was in that spot.
Looking back at the portal Zerenia made up her mind.
She dove through.

No one saw Zerenia for two hundred years. But she was seen again.
Two hundred years from the day she left, Zerenia was seen again.
People stared in astonishment as Zerenia ran out from the mines carrying a worker who had been injured in an explosion.
After all the workers were saved from the mines, the people gather around Zerenia. They were shocked, astonished, amazed. This was the Toa of whom legends spoke of. The one who died in the collapse.
Celebrations and greetings went about. The people welcomed this legendary Toa back into their home.
Several hundred years later, Zerenia's power was called upon again. A matoran had been attacked by a Bohrok and was dying. Giving up her place as a Toa she turned the matoran into a Toa. She became a turaga.
As a turaga she protected the people with her wisdom. She guided them through the challenges that faced them. For four hundred years she protected them. She died, much to the grief of the people. She died peacefully and calmly. Only giving in to old age. The people all agree, that she went out in a way that she would have found most displeasing. She would have much preferred dying in action, to dying of old age on a bed.
The people still talk of her in legends and tales. She is forever remembered for all the things she did to help the people.


Well, that story kinda sucked given my usual standards. But I have no time. So, maybe I'll fix it in the future. Or not.







Here she is as a matoran. This was the first form I made, and the one I based the rest on.



Front.



Back.



I am quite happy with how she came out. She is incredibly flexible.



See? Flexible.



Pose!



'Nother show of flexibility.



Standing without weapons.



Final shot.


So, now onto the Toa form.





This one was largely based around the look of the matoran. I just though she should look like she did before, just bigger. I do want to state that the torso was inspired by Oblivious the Hero. After seeing this, I became very inspired. I was able to copy his design, but I changed several things purely out of personal preference. So, this is basically, inspired by, but not stolen from Oblivious. :P



Back.



And back to the front again.



Pose!



Pose!



Without weapons.



Girl-y kinda pose.



Final shot.



So, now we are on to the turaga. Yes, I know it's terrible. But I had so little time. When school slows down a bit I should be able to build a little better.





Front. I actually kind like the way she looks.



Back.



Looking off into the distance.



Pose!



Hehehe... That staff is... Really pointy isn't it? *Gulp*



End.




Creator's Comments: Ooookkaay... So yes, this was terrible. I probably won't do well, but at least I'll have tried. Yes, the turaga body is just an altered version of the matoran. I was running out of time and pieces. I couldn't avoid using it.
So, I believe I have really got to go. Class is on.

Auf Wiedersehen!

Quoting Chronos Omega Hey Gale. I keep finding everyone's posts on some foreign website. http://forum.legendbricks.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=12576 There's one of yours. What do you make of it? I find this all quite funny; they've got all of mine, Gringat's, Callan's, yours, Clark's, and a lot more... but none of Grayson's. XD
What the Felipe? What's with that? XD it is kinda funny, but I'm a little more worried about it. :/ I know just a hint too much of what can happen behind the screen. Still, I'm very entertained by the fact that I'm one of them XD wonder what they got against Gray though... Or maybe it's him doing it >,> Lol

Well Chronos it was primarily the fact that I consider myself quite low on the MOC charts and I figured that if anyone at all joined then it at most would be 2 or 3 but seventeen whoah. I know it's not that many but hey it is my first attempt and with Gale and L.A.'s help I think it might all work out. I can't wait to see the contestants MOCs none the less. Sorry for putting in my needless comment Gale. Commander CJ Potter

Thanks Terilis. Etherians and about four other ideas had manifested themselves within my head before I finally decided that it was October, and Halloween would make the best fitting category. Should I win again, (Exceedingly unlikely) I will put Etherians in the top runners for a challenge topic :)

Yes all I want to thank all of the people and friends that helped make the competition possible L.A. Miranda Gale Winthrop and all the contestants. I can't believe this has become such a big deal.

I wish you luck most of all Gamma Ray but being new won't hinder you from being a great Bionicle Builder! Gale and L.A. I need to confer with you guys as soon as possible. Thanks Again.

Yes, it is. Yesterday was my birthday. The same day as Cheesy's birthday strangely enough XD I don't mean to offend and I don't ask that you build or do anything. My birthdays are not that special to me, there are just another day. I appreciate the thought though :)

This is Commander CJ Potter signing out and again Thank you My friend for your encouragement your constructive criticism and most of all for being a MOCer I hope you live well.
Don't know, I figured we'd try to fix everything up and make sure it is all thought out before we invite more people. Well, what it is specifically they would build, I personally have a few ideas for that, but this being your show, I'll let you decide. Also, a deadline for what needs to be built, I figured on something like two weeks after we assign the subject. (Love how I'm saying "we" and I'm not even sure I'm part of the planning XD) Thanks CJ :)

Quoting StoveTop Creator I like that your builds show what would be a natural progression of one being. Not being real familiar with the Bio-universe, I have been doing alot of researching of matoran transformation. I think you are the first person to "GET" it correct! They should keep the same mask and using the Toa Nuva version of the mask for the Turaga is what I have planned on doing too. To be quite honest, the other entries had me confused about the natural transformations, they all used different masks? This mask puzzle is part of the reason I have yet to post. (I'm also waiting for a few parts to arrive!)The other reason is I have been busy with my MocOlympics build. I really hope to post later on today! Oh, and I like that you did not change the bodys of the little ones too much... again... a natural progression! Also, your builds are wonderful and the poses of the Toa form are great! Very best of Luck! :)
Thank you. I just kinda built and showed what I always felt that it was like. I know lots of people have many different views on it, but I don't really care what they think. I just did what I always thought. I wondered if you'd be entering! I wish you good luck too, but I hope you get it up soon, today it the last day. Looking forward to those MocOlympics entries too.
Quoting StoveTop Creator Just read your story and I also think it too fits in nicely! I forgot to say that I especially like the Zen pose of the Toa! Thanks for clearing up so many confusing bio-transformation issues for me, and giving me back the motivation to post! :)
I was hoping the story would fit well. I tend to build my stories as I build my characters. I'm glad you like it. Of course, I'm not sure I really cleared up much, but I'm glad I could give you back the motivation to post! I always look forward to your MOCs :)

Quoting L.A. Miranda I think your possibilities will be lesser due to the fact the Turaga and Matoran version share the same body and almost legs and weapon. Also, I can see you worked more the Matoran than the other two forms, being the Turaga a modified version of the Matoran. However, I'm very impressed you can come up with these little girls without time! Then, let me tell you a secret: I couldn't do better even if I try with all my might =D The three forms are awesome, seriously, I really like how they turned (not necessary to say that the Matoran is my favourite). Although I miss some purple on the Toa (and also Velera, I can see you kill her D=), the designs are compact and pretty good, I tried to get a feet design like that since long time! Well, good job, my dear, I wish you all the luck on this world!
Thank you. Yes, I doubt I'll get anywhere with this entry, but at least I tried. I honestly doubt that, I am quite sure you could beat me easily. The matoran was definitely my favorite of the forms. The foot design is fairly simple, I just changed it up for all three forms because it aided slightly in making them look different. I appreciate the wish for luck, but "if I don't got bad luck, I don't got any luck at all."

Quoting Darren .Y This is really a fantastic build! Love the hints of purple put in there which flows nicely. I would have loved to see it on the Toa version but as is, it's brilliant. Were they made at different times cos if not I'd love to see a group shot. I hope you win this month and best of luck! ;D
Thank you. I liked the purple too, but I could not include it on the Toa version because it just did not fit. They were indeed made at other times. I built one, then pictured and scrapped, then the next and the process repeated itself. I doubt I'll win but thanks.
