About this creation



WARNING: WALL OF TEXT

A hundred thousand years ago, Veknus was a Av-Matoran who did not know what his element was. Veknus lives in Karda Nui. He was looked down upon as he was a scavenger, but he had close friends who too were scavengers. One day when Veknus was rummaging through a trash pile, he encountered a mysterious looking Toa Stone. Veknus knew about Toa Stones, but had never saw anything like it. It had a words carved on it:"Destiny will come upon he who is deemed worthy of life". Veknus was eager to show this to hs friends, hoping to make a fortune by selling it into the black market. As he went back to his village, a group of Air Serpents swooped down from caves above. Veknus paniced and tried to escape from the Rahi. In hesitation, he stepped an a loose rock and lost his balance. Veknus was falling off the cliff into his death, while falling Veknus saw the Toa Stone right before his eyes. The Toa stone started glowing. Veknus grabbed the stone and closed his eyes.

Veknus opened his eyes slowly, his vision was blurry. He wondered if he was dead. Veknus put his hand on his face, then saw that his arm looks different. He stood up, wondering what was going on. Veknus rushed to a nearby pool of water and looked upon his reflection. He was taller. More importantly, he was Toa. Shrieks suddenly filled the surroundings, the Air Serpents were not done with him just yet. Veknus had no weapons on him, he just had to use brute force. While punching the rahi's to death, one sneaked up form behind and spit acid on Veknus' left shoulder, weakening it and sent his arm crashing to the rocky floors. Veknus shouted a cry of pain and grabbed the serpent and drove his head to the ground. The remaining Air Serpents fled. Veknus looked at the bits of what used to be his arm, suddenly his mask started to glow. the arm rised up back to Veknos' body, fusing it back with the rest of it. Veknus had the ability to regenerate, he was a Toa of Life.

Veknus went back to his village and eveyone welcomed him. Veknus was given the post of protecting the village from harm. Veknus celebrated his new life with his scavenger friends. A few years later, Mata Nui was about to awaken. The Matorans fled as quickly to avoid being incenerated by the energy storm. Villages was deserted. Veknus' friends decided to stay behind a little longer, trying to scavange anything of worth from what the Matoran left behind. Veknus tried to stop them, but it was too late. The storm struck and everything in its path was eradicated. Veknus tried to save his friends, but the storm was too powerful and engulfed them all. Veknus' powers allowed paticles from his body to fuse back together after being incinerated. Veknus saw the aftermath, everything was completely gone. His home, his friends, all gone. Veknus kneeled down and cried, all he knew was lost.

Over the next tens of thousands of years, Veknus had died or been killed multiple times, but his powers prevented his soul from dimishing. Veknus roamed the lands aimlessly, he was sick of living forever. He wanted to die for good. Veknus was found by a group of Toa and learned about his powers. The Toa thought of a plan, they told Veknus that there might be a Makuta that had the capabilities to take away his powers and that he should join them to find which ever Makuta. Veknus agreed to join, but the Toa secretly were just using him in their battles since he cannot die. Veknus now still lives, and is still finding a cure for his curse called 'Life'.

My god that was long.






As you can see, I'm back to my make-shift photo set-up. Because I have a new table and won't be posting as often. But still, he looks absolutely(biased) AMAZING! First time building in yellow properly! And he contains only 281 pieces! That little!





Front.





Legs. Awesome feet!





Torso and arm.
Bonus points for heartlight! Yay!





Head. The mask is a special Kiril That could only regenerate only organic damages.
Bonus points for custom head! Squee!





Back with cape lifted. Credits to Chronos for the back piston design used in many of his mocs.
Bonus points for cloth! Woot!





The torso articulation is held by a lightsabre rod and reinforced by the piston.
Bonus points for alternate joint! I hope...





Pose.





His weapons were given to him by the Toa who found him.





Looking into the distance.





Bye!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant Congratulations man, you won! If you're ok with telling me your address I can send the mask over pretty cheaply and quickly since it's so small. Might have to do that privately over Skype/email though. I wish MOCpages had PMs.
Many thanks! I'm not sure if you can find my address on my bricklink InstantNoodles. If not, jellytie at gmail. Thanks again!

This is a really good build and a really good story, but they don't fit all that well. Veknus doesn't look very toa-like, and his image isn't very valiant, as I (personally) think a toa should be. But I've always been a critic. He is really cool.

Looks great. Love the torso, the head and those weapons. But those legs... I love the look the thighs have, but I just don't like the rest of them. *shrug* Oh well, looks great anyway. Good luck to ya! :)

Wow. The body is good, but the head is excellent. I'm surprised at how stable it is. The head kind of reminds me of Nova from Unreal Tournament 3. <3

Hope you don't mind that I'll be stealing that head :3 I don't like how cluttered this moc is, I prefer smoother looks. I think his legs don't fit with the rest of the body, and the lower torso is a bit meh :c

Those thick, gathered haunches are really Cheetah-esque. I love the armblade and blaster. The cog-greebling and grid-visor for the custom head are AWESOME! Excellent Build!~
