A criminal of the city with an interest in the insect realm.
About this creation
Well, I saved the best for last. The Death Beetle and that Black Ship were all that were left of things I had left over from LBHA that were still around, but there was one other thing.
In LBHA, there are many terrains: Volcanic, Underwater, Tundra, Jungle, Desert, Cavern, Air, Space, and City. Pretty much BIONICLE only mixed with the 2003 Racers line. Well, there is one guy that really poses a threat for the Air and City areas. His name is Yellow Jacket.
Yellow Jacket is a Vampraz, the creatures that when you look directly at their face will cause you to live a nightmare until death, and for some reason this one has a thing with black and yellow, stinging insects. He has created a device that allows him to fly and he is armed with a stinger gun and a blade.
He also has another weapon that is a staff with a blade on the end that he primarily uses for when speeding through the city on his bike and it allows him for a wider range of attack.
Yellow Jacket has had a fortunate time being a villain and has the funds to make many devices he can use at his disposal. He has a gun, two swords, device that allows him to fly without a vehicle, drones, a bike, and an assault aircraft.
While I only built one, Yellow Jacket actually has many of these. They are much like the Probes and Infodroids used by the LBHA. Their primary function is to record what is happening in the city, but they can also be used as distractions when Yellow Jacket is escaping from the Police or one of the Bounty Hunters.
I absolutely live the Wasp Drone. I don't want to sound conceited, but I've never been more proud of my use of pieces. Antennas for legs, harpoons for antennae, snowshoes for wings, and then the slope and cone pieces for shaping just make me so happy. It works for the bad guy, but it's still adorably cute.
Unfortunately, I took this apart before I took more pictures. For all of the LBHA stuff, each post was supposed to be like a file and therefore only one picture per thing. Well then after not posting things for so long but still having some stuff built, I took more pictures, but this had been destroyed by that point.
Anyway, the Stinger Bike is just something for Yellow Jacket to use when fleeing from some sort of crime he committed. While he can fly, it is not for heavy weight things for long periods of time. So if he did just rob a bank, his wings would get him not very far before the police or a bounty hunter showed up. The stinger bike is equipped with strong armor and two stinger lasers so he can even be on the offensive if it is necessary.
Yellow Jacket's signature ship. The Hornet is a large assault aircraft of his design and can be a large threat. It is fast and agile with its six wings with four of them able to rotate, and two large booster engines. It is equipped with four heavy guns on both sides of The Hornet and there is a GPS for Yellow Jacket to also use at his disposal. With a large engine in the abdomen, boosters acting like a jet's ability to pull in air and forcing it out again with great pressure, strong armor, and powerful weapons, it is not the best thing to get in the way of.
If this were to be animated, the wings would be flapping at a very high velocity. The bottom wings would flap up and then down while the top wings would flap down and then up. The lower wings can also rotate 360 degrees to allow for 0 degree turning radii in any direction. While those booster engines really propel the ship, the bottom wings are most helpful for pitch, yaw, and roll, especially in lower speeds or complete elevated rest.
The Hornet's wings also come in handy when it comes to landing, which is why they must be able to rotate.

Fun Fact: Yellow Jacket is my absolute favorite guys I made for LBHA, and if I were to ever do anything LBHA again, it would most likely be for him.

I love the Wasp drone: neat & compact building! The Hornet ship looks good too. I like the way that you've stuck to your colour scheme for all three builds. I think that it really adds to the overall look & quality.
Am I allowed to say you were a better builder back then than now? :P When you posted your last one, I honestly didn't know how you could post another old MOC that's even better, but I stand corrected. Absolutely fantastic color and piece choices. Well done.
