>there are people who think trans neon green is trans yellow
Umarak The destroyer is most likely a must have.
I would't count any of the winter sets as must have besides Umarak TH which kinda defeats it's importance cause people will want Umarak TD anyways.
But I suggest you to get Uxar or Ikir at least.
So, while Tahu isn't a bat uniter, I did want to modify it to suit my tastes. Apart from the proportions, I really wanted to include his back blades, which were my favourite element of the master figure.
Yeah right. I meant "bad" but yeah. Here he is from the front. Not the most good looking view, I would say. The figure is still in a work in progress stage so the colours will vary to get more red and less trans neon orange and gold.
Also, Tahu can unite with Ikir without having to detach the blades or anything else. I do like to get Ikir's feet around Tahu's waist like some kind of skirt armor, but that works with the original model as well.
So, what do you think, /biog/ ?
>Tahu isn't a bat uniter
You're right about that. He's more of a bird uniter
Pretty nice, makes him look way less spindly
Might wanna thicken out the top of the legs and make the back blades a bit more visible
Anyone else got/seen good Uniter mods/redux?
To me the base models have a lot of good elements but they need just that bit more carried over from last year ala anons Tahu
Thanks. I'll see to work on the thighs but I like the design of the Master Tahu for this part so it may be difficult to change from that, but I think the trans neon orange shells will get replaced by red at the very least. Also, if you didn't see this one yet, I've modified Lewa quite a bit.
You can see how the arms works here, you just keep the old arm assembly for the shoulderpads.
>not just going to multiple stores over the course of a couple of days
>not going to a Lego store where the employees are used to seeing grown men with full-blown neckbeards using their good boy points or having their ancient mothers blow their cash on 5 modulars in one purchase
For your sake, I hope you can wait for the new sets to arrive at your door, and you'll enjoy them.
It's about time you were good for something.
From the looks of things, you can pretty much build any Creature from any other with common tablescrap.
Cool for those of us that like making palette-swaps.
Just got my Onua Uniter! Really like the shooting hammer! Man 2016 is great...
>Watching the webisodes for G2 bonkles to fill me in on the story.
>The "masters of the elements" have accidentally fallen under some rubble
>Lewa states that there's probably a tunnel behind him because he can feel a breeze
>Kopaka snidely remarks "What are you? A master of air?"
OH YEAH WAY TO RUB IT IN THAT LEWA IS MASTER OF "JUNGLE" AND NOT AIR HOW DO YOU EVEN FUCKING USE "JUNGLE" ELEMENT BEYOND MOVING PLANTS THAT SHIT DOESN'T DO FUCKING ANYTHING GOD FUCKING DAMNIT LEGO YOU PIECES OF SHIT THANKS FOR THE GIANT FUUUUUUUUUUCK YOU, I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WORSE THE PRICE ALL OF YOUR SHIT DOUBLING OR HOW YOU JUST DON'T GIVE A SHIT ANYMORE.
>he doesn't know about the Uniter Pohatu trans yellow argument from threads in the past
Lurk moar, Waspix is the goto counter-example for people who say that Pohatu forearms being yellow.
Nah man Lewa is the gary stu Toa, with control over both air and plantlife. The other Toa are pretty gipped in terms of power compared to him. (Except they are all shitters who instantly jobbed to Kulta anyway so who cares).
I don't care if this is a parody, or you're seriously throwing a real pointless bitch-fit.
It doesn't matter, because either way, seriously fuck you sideways for that idiotic wall of all-caps autism. Kill yourself.
>contributing to the thread
At this point, neither are you, and there's no need for the language, anon.
When she charges her trident is electrifies and makes a zappy electricity sound. I guess it could be written off as "generic elemental energy" or whatever, but I'd prefer to think it's rainstorm lighting.
I grabbed Onua. I'm still pretty underwhelmed by Pohatu and Lewa seems tempting this time even though he's predominantly silver instead of green.
I'll get Tahu + his buddy for sure, but not sure about Kopaka.
This looks like the best place to ask, is there any more of this strange bunny/feline goo robot?
Watch your language, retard. It's trans yellow.
Is this /biog/'s dankest meme of the month?
Next you'll be telling me this has trans-yellow
Guys be real with me, should I be ashamed for playing with these toys? I don't mean MOCing and posing, I mean like literally playing with them and making up stories and shit. I only ever do it late at night when I'm done with uni or hanging with friends. Plz help me /biog/
>making love to your honey
>have your arm in them up to your elbow
>'oh nuhvok, i'm so close, give me head'
>proceed to batter their lower body with your cranium
>you finish at the same time, your krana flopping out
What can I do to make my protector sized MOCs more interesting?
Well this REALLY doesn't belong in a bionicle thread and I shouldn't have replied in the first place as its off topic but they are quite different experience
Please excuse this shitty post have some art
uh uh, let's go back to posting shitty mocs that no one cares about instead of memeing around
Mixelfags unite. I just finished building the full series 6, and DAMN there are a lot of Mixels now. 54 characters, that's $270, and there's two more series minimum planned.
Got Terak to go with Onua. It makes him extra top heavy. Also kinda wished the butt gears didn't make a horrific squeaking noise every time I turned the knob.
>he's taken more pictures
Oh boy you guys are in for a treat.
That squeaking will likely disappear with time. It's better these things can be too tight at first than too loose as far as I am concerned, since I will be using that function as an articulation point rather than an action feature.
If I'm not mistaken pixiv content is locked behing a registration wall. So im gonna dump all the images for thoes who don't want to sign up.
>It's better these things can be too tight at first than too loose as far as I am concerned
As someone who has been here since the first leaks, I can safely say that these threads havent changed in the slightest since then. They've always been this shit so like it or leave it. You want a shitty overmoderated hugbox fuck off bzp.
>People actually fap to this shit
How is this any better than the gay MLP porn BZPer's love so much? Are we not the better men? Have I been wronged by my fellow brotherhood of anonymity? Please tell me doth not take pleasure in this brand of unclean plastic succubus, gentlemen.
Bunch of faggots.
>Have I been wronged by my fellow brotherhood of anonymity?
>Please tell me doth not take pleasure in this brand of unclean plastic succubus, gentlemen
>saying all that shit then having the audacity to call ANYONE a faggot
Pot meet kettle.
I mean sometimes I can make some interesting stuff when high, but then the next day I realize how haphazard it looks.
Also for future reference, try not to mention weed on the boards. It's fine if you smoke it, but for some reason everyone here likes to get super fucking butthurt whenever you just mention it.
Inviting anyone who can do these boots justice to use them in a moc.
Yes. /biog/ always been a den of shitposting, but it's safe to say that it's gotten worse in the last 6 months at the least.
Custom limbs. Youll want ball socket pieces and half thick technic liftarms. Ive also seen people use lego tires to decorate limbs.
Custom torsos can help too, I find you can make decent ones with metru and vahki hip pieces, pic related is my attempt.
>TLG will never make the Chima armor piece in black
>You will never a sassy Mettaton EX moc
They call me mad man.
But honestly, I don't regret anything. I like the combiner quite a bit, and it's almost canon, so having it for keeps was a no brainer. I also wanted to keep Ekimu no matter what, and the second Scorpio just kinda happened. I am collector at heart so gotta have everything
Because I was too young at the time to get into Slizers and Roboriders properly you nigger. Is there something wrong with actually liking Bionicle when I'm in a Bionicle general or am I being memed on?
Got Umarak and Kopaka/Melum as my first sets since Inika today, holy fuck is Kopaladin awesome
well fuck, it wasnt rotated in preview
One of these things is not like the others, One of these things just doesn't belong.
I don't think anyone cared enough to point it out yet, but Lego actually bothered putting Tahu on the back of the Bionicle instruction booklets this year.
If there is anyone here who doesn't believe that rahkshi and kraata are the tighest shit, you can get the fuck out.
>all those kraata colors
>it's possible to make rahkshi in colors that didn't exist as sets
>dat unique body
If anyone can pose this clusterfuck to look decent, I'll send them a dollar on paypal.
I really liked their gimmick. Also, their bodies weren't made out of Takua's people.
I wish 2016's waists were more floppy. They're already made to only turn so much with the 12-tooth gear on the buttplug.
If you think its decent - i don't need the dollar.
Why no one talks about the based Cybots?
The new sets are literally trash.
They were more complex than any Bionicle set.
dose /biog/ ever read fanon? particularly Custom bionicle wiki?
Action figure prototypes before the Slizers.
Notice the lack of balljoints.
So I picked up Grievous today, and he's pretty satisfying. But I feel he needs a cape,I know some anons here have made capes for him, any tips on the shape to make it so it flows nicely on him? Bearing in mind my sewing skills don't extend beyond a compulsory textiles class in high school.
My dick can only get so hard.
Please Lego. I want this.
I'd love to take a stab at this with resin but I have no idea how to make the solid part stay in such a specific part of the mask
Can you post a deconstruction of the boots?
I think i've got it, but I can't seem to get it right.
if all goes well, I'll have an imperfect mask of snot (trans green + solid green)
only thing I have to test colors is random oil paints atm
Will LEGO ever release these, again?
Also some shitty brainstorming of Umarak TD.
Made a final adjustment to that Pridak rework I did earlier this week.
I really hope all these sets being named means Lego isn't going to be so chickenshit and name the Makuta set "Final Villain" or "Ultimate Villain" like last years Mask Maker vs Skull Grinder.
It does kinda look like the Cleric Beast. CCBS Ludwig when?
I hope so. The only unnamed sets this year are the three mid size sets for the next wave aren't they? They're just Beasts and have no name attached I think. That probably means that they're just generic monsters of which multiples exist so they don't have names. It was a nice step in the right direction naming most sets this year though, Ekimu is actually called Ekimu too.
There was an accessory pack, I think. No guarantee it's masks, though.
It pains me to say we probably won't get mask packs in G2 since they made that stupid "More than one mask power makes you corrupt and evil" rule. I'd love to see that get thrown out the window with some creative writing, though, ex: "Terry was in the MoUP and took over Makuta, not the mask itself."
If he were to keep the colorscheme It would mean TD should be totally different in all aspects. Like making him a giant animal or something.
I don't think he could cut it just as being 10$ larger with the same colorscheme.
It's not having more than one mask power that makes you auto-bad, but rather having more than one elemental power in one mask.
Want five masks with different powers? Sure!
Want one mask that contains x-ray vision, concealment, accuracy, luck, sonar, and detection? One Mask of 360-Noscope coming up!
Want one mask with fire AND gravity?! FUCK OFF, YOU FUCKING EVILBADGUY.
>I don't think he could cut it just as being 10$ larger with the same colorscheme.
Yeah, I know you're right. It was more a dig at TLG's inevitable design choice, rather than at the art itself.
Did you ever wonder... What if Tumblr merged with the worst of Biotube, and then most of the inhabitants couldn't barely even make a consistant color scheme? I have here, the answer to this question, and it is truly the worst thing I have seen...
Updated that "Makuta's Avatar" moc from a day or so back.
Decided to dial back the "built from random scrap and trash" thing and focus more on making something that looks like it could be what was left of Makuta, supplemented with bits and bobs from Makuta's fallen lieutenants.
Oh shit, looks like I wasn't the only one with that idea
>Looking to rebuild my old lego collection by getting all the bad guys on clearance at Target
>All they had there was Skull Scorpio, the single worst bonkle I've ever seen
>Panicked, grabbed the Lego Star Wars TIE-Fighter SF instead of just getting Skull Scorpio and uniter Tahu
Hindsight's 20/20, and I have some buyers remorse, but god fucking damn is the TIE-Fighter SF so fucking sick.
Part out the set to a wanted list then start shopping and you should get a rough idea of the price.
>tfw managed to get myself 2002 Technic Darth Vader's giant cape back in 2004
>tfw it'd suit large figures like Grievous perfectly
>tfw I can't find it anywhere in my house
Why did Toa discard the original golden masks? Why couldn't they wear those until they recover the unity masks? What do the normal unity masks offer compared to golden masks of power, said to be the hottest shit on Okoto?
No idea how any of it works yet, as no story details for 2016 are really known except for a general outline of like "Toa need to find creatures and then go into a labyrinth and get the mask of control before Umarak."
Anon means that their dog (I guess) chewed the living shit out of that Metru skull, so they figured "fuck it, why not use it for some heresy?"
Just like how I took this...
It was a multi-step process, but overall relatively easy. Here's a tutorial for ya candy!
I started by clipping off every damaged part of the mask with some Swiss army knife scissors (no particular reason, they were just on-hand, but I'd recommend them on account of how precise and common they are).
Because the cuts were asymmetrical, I spent a while just looking at the mask and editing profile and front-on pics in GIMP, trying to figure out how I could cut the remainder to look nice and have some symmetry.
Next I took a sharpie, marked the cuts I wanted to make on the mask and got to trimming.
Once satisfied with the cuts, I smoothed everything out with my dremel tool's grinding burr and sanding barrels of varying grit.
The last step was to clean up the remaining sharpie with some rubbing alcohol and a final rubdown with some nail polish remover to remove the "scraggly bits."
Used a piece of brown hose to fill out Umarak's bowshaft.
Can anyone with 2016 Pohatu tell me what color his kneecap armor addons are? They look like trans bright green in some photos, but the instructions make them look like they're definitely supposed to be [spoiler]trans yellow[/spoiler]
Dark orange, like his lower arm armor and mask.
I feel like every toa from the wave has one or two problems, but none of them is broken per say. I do like lewa, he's not without his fault but it looks good and uxar works with both your figures so it's a pretty good choice, and there are worse ways to spend 45 bucks.
Fuck you niggers who doubted me, Kiropanon has delivered!
No canisters or instructions, but all the pieces are very clean and in good condition.
Almost half of them had extremely tiny flaws in limb orientation and shoulder width, but that was an easy fix.
Gali here however is the worst offender, with incorrect eyes and chest addition. Luckily she was one of the two I got over a decade ago, so I have replacements.
Just picked up a black light
behold the protector of raves
Modified Potato's arms, shins, body and overall color scheme so it has more of that dark orange. I'm pretty happy with the whole result, I wanted to include the Master's asymetry initially but I felt like keeping this for Gali.
What kinds of blacklights do you guys usually use?
I was looking for a relatively sheap one on my country's analog of ebay, but all i could find were fucking blacklights for nails n shit
I just went to home depot, it was like $20 for one like this
Here you go bro, it took a long ass time. Basically your MOC falls flat on two things, structural integrity ( it isnt just stability, its flaws too), and originality. The color scheme and motifs you have going on in the arms and body shape could definitely go for a bulky Toa of water, or since you obviously like it curvy, a big-booty Toa f Water / psionics if you really want to flush out a Silver Metru Blue color scheme. The hands I included rry directions for are the same used on Tato, and the lower leg design is a derivative of a dark orange Toa I'm developing. The hips are double jointed in the diagram to give it ore range of motion, Tato, as xbox level hueg as he is, can crouch, cross his legs (if his pistons are detatched), and raise them to his chest. And when it comes to originality, Rahkshi girls aren't exactly clever or unique. Most of us during our angsty teen phase loved it when the internet slapped a fat pair of tits on anything familiar, not even bonkle was safe for some. And the nuva boob connection as I stated prior is warping the pieces.The angling of them in the diagram would work wonderfully to create a full figure, without making it too obvious that theyre boobs. The lower legs you got are fantastic and could definitely be kept, as well as the upper arms. Feel free to ask for help if you dont understand my chickenscratch.
And if anyone else wants a critique, feel free to redirect me.
Made another one, mix of trans green and solid green but you can't tell because I fucked up and added too much pigment. Has kind of a nice jade color actually, not far off from some small artifact you might see in a museum.
+ forehead vent better filled in
+ minute details (around eyes, 'breathing vents') better formed
- air bubbles invading forehead
- chin not filled in
- can't make a new mold that isn't retarded until next week
wow it looks pretty bad close up like this
Thanks, I made the weapon for a MOC of mine, the creation's name is even in the file name. I also made a scythe, many years ago, I'll tweak on it once I get my hands on Chi Vardy to revamp.
Who's dick do I gotta suck to get the sets around here?
I checked one online toy store, and they didn't even have new Bonkle listed. Everything else 2016 was either 15th of January, or early February for SW Ultrabuilds.
>Protip: running it under a faucet helped, just cold water
So I don't need to make one of these?
It looks better, but you should just remake the bow. You could attach some chains to the ends of the bone pieces and attach them to the rear of the rod, would look more like an actual bow.
All my MOCs from now on will be based on how neat they look under blacklight
Protip: when taking pics of your stuff in the dark (eg. under a blacklight), go into your camera settings and lower the ISO as much as possible. It'll make the resulting image significantly darker, but all that "graininess" will be gone.
If it ends up too dark, you can up the brightness in GIMP or some such and it'll look subtly, but significantly, better.
Examine pic related
And his less...flamboyant...cousin.
>My god, this magnetic climbing chain is cool, but fuck...
>stealthy it is not.
That's photoshop isn't it--
>holes on trans purple 3m bone's ball are flipped on existing 3m bones
You sly motherfucker.
Just dropping this off...
Yeah that's one way to ruin a perfectly fine moc. Well done BlazingHomosexual9.
How about next time you do the original creator some fucking justice and post versions of the pictures that haven't been shat on by a terrible photoshop edit?
You're the only joke around here, friend.
And a link to their flickr:
And maybe, as a way to show love of the original creation, I decided to make that image. I see nothing wrong with that. I made sure to give credit were it was due and that seems good enough.
Just a friendly PSA that UV light, especially blacklights, yellow and fade plastic colors. Soon your Kopaka will be Toa of Mustard, and Gali will be green with envy.
>yeah, but that could be a few years
Blacklight can yellow plastic within months, and once the chemical breakdown begins, you can't stop it by just turning the UV light off.
I'm not keeping the blacklight on long, just when I want to snap a few shots, or when I show off to my friends. Thanks for the advice tho.
Roughly put together my Skull Gundam, and I gotta say he looks fucking neato.
It's certainly inspired and well built. I just think the rainbow color scheme looks retarded. Yeah, the six different colors is sort of the whole point, I just think the design would've looked better if he chose only a single one of them.
