About this creation


This is my favorite MOC to date (despite the fact that I haven't finished / attached the legs yet)

The Bionicle fans amongst you will notice that this guy's chest is actually a Bohrok -- and the really neat thing - is that he can separate from the main mecha frame and transform into his little, cute robot form.

As usual, the MOC conforms to my own rules, that it be robust, playable and poseable. The Bohrok can be removed and installed with a minimum of fuss, and the act of reconnecting the Bohrok actually auto-morphs the head into the correct position. I'd say it takes roughly the same time to open the mecha frame, remove the Bhorok and then close the mecha frame - as it does to transform the Bhorok itself. (And it's a satisfying transformation process to boot!) I like the fact that, even without the Bhorok installed, the main mech remains an imposing and playable figure in its own right.

He also has a ton of really cool looking weapon load-outs that aren't shown in the picture, but there's plenty of time to explore the Battle Form when he's finished!

>>>ATTENTION!>>><<>>

If anyone can help me to identify the large, curved grey part that sits below the bohrok (forming the bottom part of the chest / torso) I'd be much obliged. I only own one of those and will need more if I'm to make another one or two. Just knowing which set(s) that piece was included in - would be a big help!

!!!EDIT!!!

Thanks to Jeremy's leet skills, the mystery part has now been identified as coming from the Jetrax T6 Kit.

Quoting Jeremy S. Nice that looks sweeeeet! too many colors though. And I hate to tell you this but that curved grey piece came from an $80 set from 2008. I think it was the Jetrax T9 or somethin'.
(Trying out more integrated scheme as I type... Well almost as I type - I'm not that dextrous) Thanks for the info on that gray part! You're totally right, I Googled Jetrax T9 and it seems that I have all the other most obvious parts of it - the turbines and the shield looking things. I have no idea which kits most of my collection is from because I wasn't into Bionicle at the time - but subsequently I bought a few batches of loose parts from ebay.

Aha! So there's division in the ranks with regards to the colour. For the most part I agree with you - I think the colourful approach works here and harkens back to the early days of Transformers. That said, I can see the argument for reducing the palette and having a more integrated look, so I'm currently trying that out as well. Still getting nowhere with the legs though - I might have to order more green parts from ebay or bricklink. Thanks for your comment Tak :)

Quoting Daniel Janči It looks really amazing!!!
Thanks Daniel! That's very encouraging to hear. Unfortunately I'm struggling with the legs - and I keep having to redesign them. The problem is that they have to be sturdy and poseable, while remaining in-keeping with the rest of the MOC. I hardly have any green parts left, so it's proving to be quite a challenge.
