No one knows how Jethryn came into the Toa Order, or left it. No one knows why he is different from all other Toa of Lightning. Most have learned to simply accept Jethryn's differences and respect him, as he isn't willing to give any answers.
He joined the ranks of the Toa shortly after an event known as the Schism--when most of the Toa split up and divided, by element, across the Matoran universe. Jethryn joined a team named the Toa Mokha, led by a Toa of Fire named Galek. No one is quite sure what happened next, except that Jethryn felt bad enough about it to leave the Toa ranks.


He at first came roamed the Matoran Universe as an exile, but eventually came to the conclusion that, although he couldn't fight for Mata Nui as a Toa, he could still fight as himself. So, he returned to Metru Nui and gathered a group of secret fighters, many of whom, like him, were also outcasts from the Toa.
The primary tactic he stresses among his teammates is secrecy. All records say that the members of his team are dead, and he wants to keep it that way. His mission is simply to show up, fight evil, and disappear--like a strike of lightning in a stormy night.


Fourth wall comments:
So this is the third version of Jethryn, my selfMOC. The first version was basically an Inika build with a Technic sheath, and the second version, while more custom, was badly colored and blocky. Since then, I've experimented on several different designs, some of which were good, some of where weren't. Finally, December came. I had wanted to make a better version of Jethryn before the SMoT, which begins in December or January. On track with that.


So, without further ado, closeups. I should mention that he has no red connectors on his surface (there are still a few within the structure, as you might see.)

Lower leg is a new design. I wanted to make the legs thinner and more cylindrical than the previous version's (excluding the armor). I was originally going to use a reverse version of Onadus' legs, but those weren't very well liked, so I went for something new. I'm not quite sure how I feel about them--your opinions will go for this.

Upper legs, minus armor.. As of recently, I've finally been able to have some innovation in custom upper legs--an altered range of movement closer to a human's. Also, this makes the third time I've used the Bohrok head pieces.

Torso, minus HF breastplate. Used the same general design for the torso as Galek (which in turn comes from Toa Solek, which in turn comes from Sidorak.) The shape was originally defined by Black Phantom's torso plate, but that was too short, so I expanded. His hood stays on his head better, since the Furno cape is tucked in on the front. (Also, Heartlight FTW)

Back of torso without cape. No real back armor (the Furno cape handles that department), but several connection points on his spine, and a place for his daggers to plug in.

Arms. Not much to looks at here. Upper arms are the same as Galek's but with smaller armor, lower arms are still non-custom, hands are the same as V2.


With his daggers. I didn't give him a sword because that would require the a large, clunky sheath. I may try that again in V4, perhaps.


Comparison with Galek, with whom he shares many similarities.


Comparison with Breez, who just reaches his waist. I still don't consider him a titan, though.

Before I sign off, I should mention that I'll be keeping wiki-style pages of Jethryn and his teammates on Brickimedia Customs. Jethryn's page can be found Here, so look at it before complaining about a lack of character information. (On the subject, thanks to Toa Infernum for pointing out that I didn't add the images quite right.
So, that makes for Jethryn's post, I appreciate any comments, critiques, and ratings on the MOC (and on the photos, if you're Chro.)

Quoting Eric Schouten I like him, he has a very "special" kind of feel to him, however, maybe you can experiment a little with custom head designs, that would make him really interesting
Thanks for the feedback. I decided to give him a normal head because the he doesn't use the Kanohi, the prefab Metru head just feels like a proper element underneath the mask. I have done work with custom heads before. Again thanks, and I'd love to hear what you have to say about the upcoming V4!

Quoting Toa Trexal Pretty awesome! But I think it's a little to skinny in the torso compared to the rest of him. But still pretty cool.
I agree with that, the torso was too generally big as well. V4 should be coming this weekend, I've made his torso shorter and tried to give him some more bulk on that.

Quoting Saequis (Sam M) Nice overall design, although I think the body is slightly too tall compared to the limbs.
Maybe. I can't really tell, since I've scrapped that version already. Pretty much all my MOCs have a direct proportion system -- the arms are only slightly shorter than the legs, and the hand much be able to reach the mid-thigh. So Jethryn V4's proportions will be based around that ratio. That said, I'm planning to use a different torso on V4, and hopefully better arms than this version too, which should be longer. Thanks for the comment.

Quoting Toa of Sushi Looks awesome. Definitely has that assassin jibe going for him (I don't know if that was intended or not). Though something about that head kind of bothers me...
As in, disturbs you? I would agree. :P I've actually made a new head right now, which should be up soon.

Wow. That is really good. I just made my first Bionicles, and since you're really good at making them, I was wondering if you could provide some constructive criticism. I don't mean to spam, I just thought you would be the best guy to come to. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/379169

Definitely the best one yet, possobly even your best MOC in general. He doesn't look nearly as weird or clunky as before, in fact, he looks quite streamlined. Well done!

I actually think that the Furno cape may be a tad thick material-wise to use there; it parachutes out a bit and makes the mass of cloth look a little.. globby?... from reverse shots. Exact same size/shape from a piece of flimsier custom cloth would do wonders - I say this because you've already given away that the back looks good without it (that arrangement with the daggers stowed back there all yin-yang-ey looks very cool), so no fear in trading it out for something more Sheer in nature. Otherwise, the figure's good, nice design, all 'round. My Two Cents. Cheers!~

Quoting Toa Infernum Nice. Why does this ( http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=377048&id=/user_images/103747/13762607852 ) come up when I click on one of the pics?
The pictures come from an external site, so I might not have set them correctly... let me try to fix that... thanks for telling me.

Quoting X ~ The new photos are appreciated very much! Love the new Jethryn! Love the absence of almost any red pin! And I really like the fact he doesn't look clunky or messy in SOME parts. The legs are great but look a bit too bulky specifically in the thigh area. The arms are cool! The torso is a work of brilliancy! It's so so so GREAT! And even though the same mask is still there I like how you made the eyes more visible. Anyway great job StormJay! And IMO you're finest and best moc you've made. ;) ..... ..... God...X is the shortest self-moc out of Ciaros,Reaper,Deaskuth, and now Jethnryn. :L
My X is at Inika size... may be able to give him a bit more height in the near future... perhaps. :P Thanks X!
