Wow...it's been a while since I posted an actual moc...anyway, this is the new and improved version of Toa Essence, my self moc. Here is the story I recycled from the last moc.
Occupation: King, Adventurer, Memeber of the OOMN, Former assasin for hire.
Biography: The first thing Essence ever remembers was wandering the wastes of the Forsaken Lands, looking for work. Once he figured out he could fight, he became an assasin for hire, working for the warring Skakdi or Skrall. At this time the Matoran were scattered and the Toa were forgotten and broken. But when Essence discovered a Legendary Kanohi- the Ignika- waiting for him in a cave this all changed. He knew he could not wear it, as he couldn't wear Kanohi. And on it's surface words were written in an anicent toungue, long forgotten by the world. And yet Essence could read it. It told him of a prophecy. That he was to reunite the Forgotten Lands in time to save it from a looming catastrophe. So he did. He routed the Skakdi and Skrall, and built a city for the Matoran. And then slowly the Toa re-surfaced. Life was good, and the Kanohi Ignika slowly fell into legend. Until the Makuta returned. They attacked the land and the second part of the prophecy had to be fulfilled. "On the day darker than any other, a King must leave his thrown lest the world ends." So Essence stood down as king and gathered those loyal to him. He waged war on the Makuta, but their allies were too powerful. Swarms of Rahkshi overwhelmed the city and killed 90% of the Matoran inside. Essence was infuriated, and went into hiding, ashamed.
Ok so here we have a view of the head. It remains, but this time in black so as to look better.
This is my custom body design, which I'm quite happy with, I haven't seen anything of it's like before, and made it when I was just fiddling with very few pieces.
And it seems even the world of the Bionicle cannot escape Korean singer PSY's hit, Gangnam Style. Or maybe Essence is just trying to be 'street', but given that he's MY slef moc, I doubt that.
