S.A.I. transmission #536544213: MAEL, THE BRINGER OF THE LAST HOUR:
About this creation


Welcome back, intrepid researchers, to arguably the final report of the S.A.I. ! (for better or worse) We have more than confirmed the presence of a new Ancie- well, perhaps I shouldn't say new -off-mic thumping- Nigel, surely the systems in this universe are having a glitch, surely this thing's power can be displayed without having to download ZETABYTES on a bar-graph! Never mind... thing's probably gone crazy with the measurements we've been taking....



I apologize, my fellow researchers. We have been rather... strung out trying to get data on this Ancient, known as Mael. We are just now getting accustomed to the new measurement tech.. Research on this behemoth is nigh impossible.

First of all, we should explain a semi-related reason this Ancient was never discovered in our previous explorations of the now-barren region of Somniferria.

IT NEVER EXISTED ON SOMNIFERRIA PRIME.



...you see, it WOULD have..

Had it not been for its BIRTH.

The sheer concept of a SHELL, that could house that much POWER.. We speak of more than the average Ancient's power... We are still taking measurements of its enormous reserves...

...we are not sure they even have a LIMIT...

Well, the sheer ENERGY that was brought into being with this Mael's birth...

...was enough to rend Somniferria itself APART.

It SPLIT, you see. Into two separate universes. Every scrap of matter that existed at that time was duplicated, and split apart into equal amounts.. then REFORMED in two separate universes...

But only ONE held Mael.



... I apologize, readers... You see, we don't really comprehend what happened here, just that it did HAPPEN...

...perhaps The Split (as Nigel recently dubbed it, it has proven quite the useful term) was INTENDED by whatever malevolent ends the creator of this monstrosity had?



...Which brings us to its creator. We use the term CREATOR here, as ONE MAN built this horror...

A man by the name of N. According to the data reaped from Somniferria Nega, (once again, credit to Nigel for the term) he was considered the lowest in the community, albeit a genius with technology, and could CREATE with very little time and little effort.

The community dismissed him (similarly to the Masamune incident) as a genius nutter, nothing more.

THEY NEVER DREAMT WHAT WENT ON IN HIS SICK, TWISTED MIND.



....want to hear my theory?

Deep down, he wanted to be apreciated.

Appreciation, leading to a lust for POWER.

..and power? To insanity.

He used his knowledge of technology to hack into the computer systems, discovering the Ancient projects...

He analyzed them, and began to build his OWN.



Eventually, he moved, but no one knew why.

Soon, the War of the Ancients destroyed that town, and many more, even as it did on Somniferria Prime.

He wasn't ever seen on the street, and people were glad of it.

...and still, N, twisted beyond belief, chipped away at the construction of his Ancient....

..when a twisted idea formed in his mind...

..if he could make this Ancient STRONG enough, POWERFUL enough..

..perhaps the OTHER ANCIENTS would OBEY it?...

...and if HE controlled a KING of the ANCIENTS...

...HE WOULD CONTROL ALL THE ANCIENTS.

Naturally, this Mael did what its predecessors did..

..N's BONES still float in space.



N's last act, ironcially, was sealing his life's dream in a stasis pod, realizing his peril at the last moment -obviously not before he was reduced to a lifeless skeleton-

It would still lie there, but obviously, we can't have a happy ending.

You see, a UFO (we use the acronym) had flown into Somniferria Nega, and due to the warp in time...

We were sent to Nega, and our Nega counterparts? Residing on our S.A.I. base now.



We were (luckily) in a probe at the time, and the course we had set it to travel was towards Prime- or now, towards Nega. We flew straight through an open window in N's lab (it all seemed TOO well planned, perhaps it was MEANT to happen?) and landed in a huge room, with a megalithic stasis pod. We couldn't see in, as it was fogged up, as though something was BREATHING in there. Then?

Footsteps.

We ducked behind a control system.

Two figures.

Buttons.

MAEL WAS UNLEASHED.

We managed to stowaway on the two being's escape ship, and a good thing too.

SOMNIFERRIA WENT UP IN FLAMES BEHIND US.



Then, looking out a window, we saw it.

Huge, sinister, and uncomprensibly powerful. It was truly WORTHY of being the king of the Ancients. Its claws began to glow. It made a motion in the air, and Malign, its scythe, was born. A gleaming blade, it was paper-thin, yet strong as titanium.

We are lucky the pilot of that ship made it out without being blown to smithereens.



We make this transmission from the owner of the starship's universe, the Matoran Universe. The technology here is very complex, and we are still getting used to the biomechanical traits of the beings here. We have been told the defenses could hold back the strongest of beings.

...however, I wonder...

...is it enough..

...to stop the KING of the Ancients?

I think..

Wait, Nigel, what's that?! It's getting closer? What? It's HERE RIGHT NO--Time of transmission: 20:14:21 March 13.



4th wall with images:

Well guys, I'm very pleased with how this turned out. The photos came out well too, and no Photoshop! Just a light thing with oil-slides. Oh and here's the theme song:



Lower front legs. Oh boy, do I love these photos. You get more detail with these shots. Anyhoot, I particularly like the way these turned out. The Metru shin makes for a mechanical feel, and the Kiina fins add a shadowy feel it needs. Also, posable toes :D. Very proud of my use of the Inika waist piece down there. To clarify on how it stays even, simple fact is I have a Metru chest cover on the back of it.



Back lower legs. The Mata foot works here, I think. Also, that's a simple balljoint+Ninjago dragon claw combo. It continues the shadowy effect well. All the design here is is a bunch of Technic beams with armour.



Upper legs. People said they looked a little skinny and un-armored, so I changed it. RAWR- at blue pin >.<



Torso. I like the way this picture came out. You can actually SEE it now! XD That HF armour works well, not to mention how proud I am of his shoulder design. It's a Technic axle with Corroder shields and HF wave 1 villain feet attached. Very nice feel there.



Lower arm. Rounded muscular shapes here. I put anothe balljoint on the axle this design is based on and attached anothe shell here.That shadow is my camera.



Mugshot Head picture. I love this design, use it if you wish, credit is appreciated.



The wings. Tape, scissors, and an old shirt for the win. EDIT: No thread for any form of sewing these things on, sorry folks :(.



The guns. That's Metru shoulder armour up there behind the blasters.



The scythe, Malign. Sorry I didn't get a shot with him holding it, may edit in a pic of that later.



Closing shot. I love the way that lighter looks with the red light.



BONUS: My camera light thing. Works wonders for taking photos of black MOCs, as well as adding cool effects.

The pictures ruin what could have been a great build. The close-ups are fine, but the rest are so low quality that it's hard to see any of it in them. The light effects also seem out of place, I'd rather see clear photos than the lights. The wings also could be better, I dislike the non-purist bits and the tape is way too noticeable and distracting. Other than that he looks good though.

Thanks Wert! Hmm, perhaps I can find some black tape to get rid of the shinyness.

Quoting Toa Spirit Sweet! I like the new design and by the way I have the same problem with those blue pieces. Love the story as well. I truly believe this thing could over power most of the ancients (Malgothiel excepted). Now I really hope I can fix my camera troubles fixed and post the first version of my ancient Thoromael. Great job and keep up the amazing work.
Thanks Toa! Give me a link when you finish, I'll be sure to look!

Quoting The Journeyman Ranger Ok, sorry for not leaving a DECENT comment, but here we go. This is a definite improvement over the original, the foot design's great, the torso matches the scale better, and for some reason, you can see the details a bit better too! But I still think that some gunmetal should be incorporated though ;) Is he taller now than he was before? Because based off of what you told me, I think with the wings he towers over Neox :3
Thanks Journeyman! He's 19 and a half inches tall fully erect with wings.

Quoting Clever Crowe So glad to see this new Layout, Garrett. It moves the reader along to have a bit of story interspersed between those good MOC shots. As I said before I like the MOC itself, and thank you for the Cred, of course. Definitely my favorite Scale to work in, by far. This tape problem: I promise - if you are patient, a little black thread might do wonders. Hey, I didn't think I had it in me either, before I started (one of the reasons the Build took so bloody long), but I really wanted to Get It Right, y'know? ESPECIALLY since the dementor cloaks already have those corner perforations - you could thread some firm-but-not-pinching knots through those (where they overlap) and it should hold your desired 'Wing' shape - all fanned out, like that. Blah, just a suggestion. Still think this is great. Cheers!~ =) My compliments.
Thanks Crowe! I agree, the thread would look better, I (very unlikely) MIGHT try and get hold of the materials.

Agreed, and he will go up against him, alongside Ciaros, Blaster, and all the rest of the good guys.

Quoting Lindel Baskin Excellent revamp of Mael, Garret! I love the demonic look. Those legs and the epic custom head design really add to that feel. The shaping of the wings looks really good and also adds to that, although I agree that the tape doesn't look the best. If you don't have sewing supplies, the only thing I'd do is bulk up the torso a bit. He seems a little thin right there, so you might want to consider adding more armor. Great work, Garret, this is a very well-done MOC. Cheers! =)
Thanks Lindel! OK, I'm swayed, more torso armour coming soon :D.

Quoting Jeremy S. Tape.... really bro? But that's my only complaint. Good job.
Eh, I can untape it, if that's your concern. My policy on purism is anything goes as long as it can be easily undone, and isn't totally random (I.E. something you would use everyday)

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant I agree with those below; the tape looks awful. The shape of the wings is magnificent though, fits well with the rest of him. Very draconic. I think you need a lot more definition and detail on the cannons though. Simple glatorian heads just don't work.
I'm going to add a disclaimer right here and now on the wing, XD. Thing on the guns is, I wanted this MOC to have a Clever Crowe "feel" to it, and he uses the Glatorian heads with normally a few greeble. Might add something like that, but my trans-red is hitting a low in that shade. Thanks Gringat!

Quoting Jensen Anderson That's quite a build! Very nice work here. As Chro said tho, te torso needs some beefing and the wings don't look as good as they could.

Quoting Max W. cool. I'm not quite sure how you want to flesh out his character further--It seems like he's a being of raw power and therefore his physique doesn't need to be perfect. It isn't, but in all honesty the slightly warped proportions are a bit off putting, adding to the demonic feel of the thing. I'd suggest loosely sewing the wings together with black thread instead of using tape, it looks bad. Other than that though he's very cool. If you want him to feel more real, definitely listen to chro--the torso is unrealistically underbuffed for a bionicle, they tend to be a bit ridiculous. Broader shoulders and more around the stomach/abs region might help.
Well, I'm actually not going to flesh out the character anymore, as he doesn't really have a personality, just a need for destruction. I might try that, but I don't have any of the materials on hand. The demonic feel is one of my top priorities, but bulky is another, so hmm. Maybe.
