Project: Goliath Knight . My MASSIVE entry to the second round of the Bio-cup 2013! .
One night Tallix was patrolling through the city of Metru-nui. He heard a scream, the scream of a matoran.
Tallix raced through the streets, until he reached the source of the screams. There he saw a Ta-matoran. “Come quickly Toa-hero! Over here!” said the matoran before running around a corner. Tallix followed him without thinking. He raced around the corner, finding himself surrounded by rahkshi, the Makuta’s new pets.
The Makuta was there too, and Tallix saw him hand the Ta-matoran a pile of cash.
Tallix soon was escorted to the Makuta’s secret lair, underneath Ga-metru. There the Makuta thought of a use for Tallix.
He placed Tallix in a gigantic mech suit, where his body and mind were put in stasis, but his knowledge was programmed into the mech. The mech fed of his mind and body, using them to pilot itself.
He was placed on an island, programmed to protect an artifact of great importance to the Makuta. There he stayed for years, destroying any living souls that dared to venture to the island. But Tallix was destined for much more…
Tubes are one of my favorite details!
The fingers might be one of my favorite parts.
Upper back armor. :)
A few more poses.
All you have to do to remove Tallix is raise the Mech's head... and pull the rider out. Super simple and quick.
With the mech's head all the way back. It folds into the back.
Mech and rider.
A few rider-less poses
Where Tallix sits. Nice and roomy.
I love how this turned out! I worked so hard on him, but still finished him in the first few days. However, after I finished him my life got crazy. First my family’s computer got a virus. The next day my sister broke her arm, and I spent all day in the emergency room. The next day I played paintball all day (which was awesome). Which brings us to today, where I am hoping to get my entry in on time from my dad’s old work computer…
Anyway, enough about me. I really love how this turned out. He was inspired by the mechanical knights in Infinity Blade II. I worked so hard on this… really hope I survive this round. He uses a Witch Doctor type hip and arm connection (but with more ball joints). Also he DOES have a posable waist!
OK, thanks for looking! Hope you like it! :D
