Wondering the new world, trying to survive, with a dark mission to accomplish.
About this creation
As the new world sprung a paradise for the beings of Mata Nui, The servants of Makuta Teridax were left with no direction or purpose. Those who survived, have soon found that without their master, they are slowly rotting away, with little to no way of restoring themselves.
Turahk, the rahkshi of fear, has spent his years rebuilding his body and surviving by himself, learning the value of patience despite his destructive nature. Yet even with his new body, it's slowly rotting away like his old one, and he does not want to become dust in the wind.
With the help of a mysterious benefactor, Turahk found a new mission in life, to restore himself and return to his former glory, he had to do one simple thing. Since the Kraata were created from the essence of the Makuta themselves, then it's possible to recreate that Makuta from the Kraata they came from. So to gather the other surviving rahkshi, Turahk has the chance to survive and roam once again when Teridax reigned over.
Ok, story telling done for now, let's talk about the MOC. This is more of an attempted to revamp the original rakhshi, and he turned out pretty good. I tried to mix the look of the movie rakshi, AND the original set, and so with limited parts, this is how he turned out~
The funny thing is that, as many of you might agree, I HATE Bioncle stars parts! They break so easily, but that one green leg part that I was using as a rusted part actually inspired the factor of Turahk rusting away, making that leg a pain to work with, but giving him a quirk.
When he doesn't need his staff, the business ends store away into his elbows, while the rest of his staff disappears into....
...his suva that is on top of his back shell, or Kraata container, whatever you call it.

Sucker can still launch out his Kraata, an this feels like such a natural pose for this...
I didn't like how the rahkshi go into hover mode, so with my revamp, he folds up his body to go into hover mode.
For him to hover around, he actually goes backwards, since his head is folded in and those are the only eyes he has, and he can deploy his claws if he wants to while flying around.
Get BACK HERE TURAHK! I'm not done with you!
An so, with his mission, and few of his kind scattered about, he has found one rahkshi, but it will take some time to remind her of who she is. Luckily, he has found the one thing that can help her with that~
>_< wait for it.....
Oh lord, it took so long to do this, that Turahk is trying to induce fear into me, RUN!
Ok guys, it's been a long day hope you like it, and as always, leave a comment, and have fun! Coming up next time I have a few other Toas of my own and a Turaga that looks cool!?
Quoting Darren .Y
Overall this is not the geatest build ever. The colors are unevenly distributed and the pieces look as if it's just been randomly thrown in for the h eck of it. The storyline though is great.
Well Darren, I worked with what I had at the time. Not only that, but he IS a collection of parts he could find, cause his body is rotting and rusting away on him, which suits why I built him this way.
