You are so full of shit. You didn't do it out of love for the source, you did it because you're a god damn attention whore parasite. Leeching off of others work just so you can put your own name on something you had no part in. This is what the image would have looked like if you really were doing it for the love of the creation.

They're the Okoto Outcasts. Lenko is a jungle shaman, who learned his true potential from an old hermit, and controls powerful miobechanical beasts. Asheoko is a fast swimer, and a strong independant woman who don't take no man's crap. Fouko is an assassin for hire, who was exiled from his village after being framed for murdering the village chief. Palko is a half-breed of the Fire Clan and Ice Clan, never fitting in anywhere. Iphanko isn't sure who he is, having woken up atop a stony mountain.

When the Toa are nowhere to be found, the Outcasts unite to defeat evil.

>Millennia ago, when the Elemental Creatures came into being, the shadows gave birth to a terrible fiend whose sole purpose was to hunt the Creatures, to trap and bind them in darkness and drain them of power. He is known among the Protectors as Umarak, which in their tongue means ‘Shadow Hunter’. They fear him greatly and pray that the Toa will be strong enough to confront him. Should the Hunter ever track down the Elemental Creatures, Okoto’s very foundation will be threatened with destruction.
Sweet, sweet lore.
>>
>>5397559
So I'm guessing Umarak was made or hired by Makuta (as he looks less mystical and more like a mercenary) to gather the elemental creatures to drain them of their elements for the purposes of creating the Mask of Ultimate Power.
>>
>>5397559
>>5397618
Additionally, his name meaning "Shadow Hunter", may be a reference to the Dark Hunters of G1, perhaps not actually making him one, but for certain making his being a mercenary rather than a mystical being more likely.

>>
Finally got my hands on my first 2016 sets (Tahu, Lewa, their respective creatures, and Umarak), all super awesome. Is it just me or are the masks WAY tighter than they were last year? It actually takes some effort to pull them off the face which I like.

Also the crystal blades are way thinner than I expected them to be and require some unbending out of the box, while the creature heads are way bigger and more solid than expected.
>>
Question for you lore heavy anons.

Is there ANY indication at all about what "made" kulta, or why the ancient city just happens to be filled with dead spookingtons?

And what ARE the grinder's intentions? Why does it want to destroy the mask of creation? a grudge? for shits and giggles?
>>
>>5398376
Kulta is stated to be one of Makuta's servants, but thats about it. The skull warriors and likely Skull Slicer were all raised from the dead (likely the dead of former inhabitants of the City of the Mask Makers) by Kulta's power, perhaps Skull Basher was too but all we really know is that he is Kulta's Lieutenant. Kulta planned to destroy the mask of Creation, likely under Makuta's orders (who would want it destroyed because of combination of jealousy for his brother and the fact that it is a strong mask that could fuck with whatever he is up to), Kulta delayed destroying the mask in order to use it's power to defeat the Toa, but got fucked up by Ekimu.

>>5398953
If we speak about vanilla sets, jungle is still better than Stone since it has back coverage and his thighs aren't blocked from being straight. Also, he's still the best looking bow user of the three sets. Umarak is excellent, but his bow looks like shit.
>>
>>5399022
Umarak's bow looks awesome what?
>>
>>5399022
All valid points. I really wish Umarak had a better sidearm, because while the bow is fitting, I'm not a fan of it. At the same time, his little knife just looks kind of...silly. It's too small for him, like seeing a knight in armor wielding a knife.

Spoilers ahead and a rushed summary of how it ended:

They find out Mata Nui was actually a gigantic robot that the entire matoran universe (metru nui, all the other ones around that area) and they had been living inside him, they wake up mata nui but makuta transplants his own consciousness into mata nui's body just as he wakes up, taking control of the universe, mata nui's spirit gets thrown in the mask of life and jettisoned into space, where it lands on the planet where it all began (or 1/3rd of the planet, the other two thirds were a water one where the entire bionicle storyline took place, and a jungle one we never saw, they got split apart and mata nui was made to put them back together)

Anyway so mata nui goes there and does random shit then he finds an old prototype robot body and goes in it then makuta shows up in his body and they fight and mata nui uses gravity powers to send one the other planets coming back down and it hits makuta in the face killing him and then the planet is restored to its full form and mata nui leaves and the matoran integrate with the planets locals.

There is a bunch of other random shit and over-complicated lore and lovecraft fanfiction leading up to these events but what I stated is all that really matters.

>how Bionicle ends
It doesn't. At the end of the story, there was a Matoran/Great Being killing everyone, some shit was going on in the Red Star and Bota Magna was never properly explored. I think the Toa Mahri were rescued from the exploding fortress, but I have no fucking clue at this point. As much as I liked the G1 story, none of it was ever really finished, apart from Teridax getting killed by the moon. The 'saving Mata Nui' thing was completely pointless as he dies at the end anyway.

So that's why they made Toa Mata Nui?
And they didn't make a set for the original body, did they?

Is there any closure with the Dark Hunters?
Are the people in the Pit still crazy?
What about Lesovikk and Karzahni?
Is the old Bionicle stuff ever going to come to the new one.

It was only "unfinished" if you followed the serials which spiraled out of control anyway. Disregarding those completely, the series ended well enough. Especially considering it was based on a toy line and lasted almost 10 years.

in the order you asked.

Toa Mata Nui was a great set. it's almost a shame that Legend Reborn didn't get the second movie like it wanted...ALMOST.
no. they did not make a Great Spirit Robot, nor a Prototype Robot.
Nope.
Yep.

Forgot to mention the avohkii's gold would be gold metallic powder, which is spread over the mold and adheres to the resin to create a faux metal look.

That spread on the front of the mask in different patterns would probably look fantastic with light illuminating the transparent part. Shit, I'm considering turning this into a full operation...

His Bitch Ass Nigga Targeting System hasn't been fully completed (translation-I haven't gotten around to ordering Gali Mistika's reticule on bricklink), so for now it's still some brainwave helmet bullshit. I changed it to Von Nebulas orb because Pac always wore a blue bandana and this is the best I could manage in Lego without making a mini blue bandana. That feels like heresy, but it doesn't actually damage the Piece, soooo... You can also see his shoulder mounted grenade launcher, for large clusters of niggas from the wrong crew.

He also has a wing pack, for missions where niggas in they private jets gots to learn. I'm still working on this moc, so I'll probably add some thrusters later on, but hopefully you can make out the Ben 10 torso piece. I wanted to go for a biomechanical vibe, but that fell apart when his torso became taller than your average Protector.

Finally, RoboPac comes with his mic and chain (disclaimer: Pac didn't really rock a big flashy chain that often, but it went with the casual racism of this moc). I'm still working on and improving this moc, so if you guys have any suggestions or critiques, I'd appreciate it. Mainly I'm worried about the upper arms - I want to make them bigger but keep them light, since the construction kinda favors CCBS bones in it.

Hey, assbutt, if your pics aren't fully focused, MAKE THEM SMALLER THAN 1000 PIXELS ON A SIDE, JESUS CHRIST.

Even a focused picture that big is a goddamn nightmare to look at, while these are just blurry trainwrecks.

Take a look at pic related. What's easier to get an overall look at? The cropped/resized composite I posted, or the full-sized blurstorms that you brought to the table?

Showing everything BIG and IN YOUR FACE is a mistake that everyone new to art and photography makes.
While it makes sense -- everything being bigger means the cool stuff is easier to see, right? -- it makes the entire composition impossible to see easily, and exaggerates every flaw in the image.
Always, ALWAYS resize and crop your pics.

Yes. "Minimum Buy" means that, at minimum, you must purchase a quantity of parts whose total cost is equal to or greater than the specified sum.
Given that the minimum buy of the pictured store is AU $7.77, it requires that you purchase at least AU $7.77 worth of parts from them.

I advise that you filter search results to only show Australian stores which carry that color of Mata brainstalks.

I second this. I'd like to give Pohatu dark tan shoulders and replace the 3L shells on his forearms with silver ones in the same size.

However, I need to know how Pohatu looks with dark tan shoulders and how Ketar looks with even more silver on him before I go out and buy them - because I don't want to waste money on a 2nd Ketar if it won't work.

Thanks, the body has been modified quite a bit, the picture show how I've done it, the dark bluish grey angle pieces on the sides will be replaced by the newest ones with only one cross axle from this year since the second axle is useless. Also, the shoulders will be reinforced using 3L axles with stop (the ones from Tahu's new weapons) once I can order some. Finally, the hordika necks are attached via some 3L bars with 2/3 cross axle and 1/3 round, it'll get replaced with the other one, which is also used on pretty much every uniters back to... unite.
>>
>>5400630
Oh and, I almost forgot that the center piece will be replaced by the longer one used on pohatu's shoulders, to attach to the black pin on the torso.

Also, now that I think about it, the shoulders and boot could look good on kopaka since it does look a bit like his 2015 design. I might see what I can do with that when I get it.

>The XK5-CLHN, often referred to by its nickname "Calhoun" after its designer and chief engineer Gwendoline Calhoun, is among the most brute and lethal of the Alliance Marines robotics based exploration machines.

It's opposite hand is a DMX5 Rotary Coupler enhanced Power Bkaster, capable of firing energy and projectile ammunition with unparalleled force.

>"The pilot of this particular Calhoun is Adalai Cunningham, widow of Alliance Marine Colonel and war hero Jackson Cunningham. Having continued teaching kindergarten at Fort Rathbone after Jacksons death, Adalai was approached by Alliance Marines and asked to join the upcoming "Dignitary" program, which would send Alliance Marines to previously unvisited alien planets in an attempt to introduce them to humanity. Her particular Calhoun, noted for its distinctive translucent and garish color scheme, is as much a part of Adalai as the wedding ring she still wears. Calhouns were designed with customization of the pilots in mind, and so once Adalai received word that she was cleared for the Dignitary program, she allowed her current, and final class of kindergarteners to decorate her Calhounqs something of a going away ceremony for her."
>>
>>5400730
Well the ridiculous color scheme was sort of intentional. It's one of those Mocs with a story behind it - in universe, the color scheme literally WAS designed by a class of kindergarteners. The real reason was I just wanted to slap together a bunch of transparent parts and see what it looked like, but then it became a Exo suit thing and I just got attached to it. I'll probably design a less garish version of one of these in the future.

Here's him with the metal arm. I changed a few things, like his other alarm has both trains yellow bones, and he has this nifty little spear to dismember desert creatures. His metal arm is LITERALLY lifted straight off of '15 Pojatu, no modification at all. You really did well with this torso design man, inspired me to try something similar with Tahu.

Has anyone else noticed how much friction the new sets have for their torso gearbox? Like, my Onua actually squeaks when I use the gear function. This is my worst case scenario, but there is some heavy friction with these sets.

Has anyone else noticed this with the new stuff?
>>
>>5400969
Personally I find that with Brown figures the different shades dont matter to me as much, it just feels sorta textured or rusted or something, while with many other colors different shades of one color can look awful (I think the darker shade of Tahu's 2016 mask due to blending was the main reason for there being almost no red on the figure).
>>
>>5400972
It squeaks, but it isn't nearly as tight as 2015 Gali's without a weapon in hand or Onua's.
>>
>>5400921
>>5400949
That does look nice, though I would have maybe tried to add textures to the forearm for it to look different ? I see you kept more or less the weapons stock, I wanted to try doing something with the blade but I didn't find anything I really liked so I kept using only the flail. Also yeah, not a big fan of the rounded look, it feels a bit too smooth for the overall very detailed look.
>>
>>5400972
Squeaking will go away in time. It's better than it just being loose and ruining that oh-so-important articulation point.
>>
>>5400972
As said already, it is better to be tight and loosen up rather than just be loose.

Plus you can space out the gear some to get a little bit less friction.
>>
>>5400972
I haven't got any of the Uniters yet, but I like the amount of friction on the 2015 gearboxes. It's a lot better than the Toa Mata, where they didn't even try to add friction. Teridax was a bit loose in the waist, so it's great to hear that we can now pose our figures properly.

Once you get past his gold problem (adding more, getting used to it, or removing it entirely), he's a legitimately fun thing to play around with, especially since his shoulders allow a bit more freedom than what the standard connection allows.

>>5401339
His function feels less shitty than Terak's at least, since you are converting the lever motion into a hugging / grabbing motion. with terak it just feels like the lever isnt even needed since your just moving both arms up and down at the same time in a boring fashion.

>>5401339

So humanized art is nearly 100% bad all the time, and it gets worse with tumblr involved, with bullshit race changes/choices and imaginary gender nonsense. Undertale is just one example of this.


However, I feel like the humanized Bionicle art that makes everyone brown is actually okay, seeing as the original setting and general tropes are lifted/inspired by Maori islanders.

Tl;dr: Humanized art is usually tumblrized garbage of race changing, but Bionicle being brown islanders is fitting to the original theme.

>>5401498
how about not humanizing the bonkles because thats retarded because they arent supposed to be toy representations of humans. If you have to go to any extent of stylization the best path to take would be to go with what the current design direction of sets seems to suggest, mechanical silver bones as the skeleton, the skin or whatever being mostly transparent elemental color, and then the various types of armor etc on that being various colors.

I saw that back when it was first made, just as bad, didnt realize they made anything past episode 3 though.

But yeah the Bionicle fanbase has always been basically tumblr, it's not something you noticed much back in the day but looking back on it you can see just how bad it really was and it had a negative effect on the line as a whole, the number of leading questions made by fans when ask Greg was a thing were a big reason things got completely out of hand, Greg's dozens of edgy sidestories werent really all that complicated on their own.

After having all the new sets in hand and comparing them to last year's, I'm surprised how toyish the 2015 sets feel now in comparison. I really just don't appreciate the 2015 sets as much now and Gali and Kopaka feel like the only ones who don't look like complete shit to me now, probably due to Gali's metallic colors and kopakas lack of those terrible open ball joints

And right now, I don't think I've ever loved a MOC/revamp as this sunnavabitch.

This might sound dumb but I never got any of Teridax's sets in G1, and there's some sort of nostalgia-driven satisfaction in having a Makuta to call my own now. And screw what he may look like next year. To have him and his brother like they were back when I first saw that Legends trailer feels damn good.

Gertrude on the left, Scrambles on the right.

Scrambles was a Magnificent Corpse-style collaborative effort between a lot of anons, six making various limbs and a torso custom-built to make it gel. He was named both for the "scramble city" construction and for that one episode of Metalocalypse where they name a hurricane "scrambles."

Gertrude was a moc from the Time Before G2, and won /biog/ over with her soviet charm and ability to suplex a train full of bears.

Funny I just had the totally opposite reaction last night. Upon trying to not have my room cluttered I stored my 2015 Toa away in a container and after getting Pohatu, Kopaka, and Onua, and then taking a look at the 2015 versions again, I realized how worse the newer ones are IMO.

The colorschemes got so much more fucked up, aside from Onua's ; the torsos are flimsy in places like Kopaka's shoulders; the various degrees of textures in their armor clash so hard; the Uniter shell looks too long and tacked on in comparison to the two piece torsos; complexity for complexity's sake; worse mask designs; worse weapons; too much trans on everyone; wacky points of articulation like Pohatu's shoulders (bend them back and his arms cave in)

Idk. The sleek, bold and vibrant look the 2015 guys had totally slipped me when I first had them in hand. The only things I say we're improved upon were the ball joints no longer being exposed, better build experiences, Gali trading yellow for orange as an accent color, and Onua swapping solid for trans purple.

Other than that, the 2016 guys are just a huge letdown to me. I even modded my 2015 guys a bit and properly put them on display. Onua's in the process of being rebuilt with his 2016 versions' parts.

Maybe I just hate the look of empty CCBS shells and the lack of a neck on most of the figures. I also disliked the abstract chest printing and the overall shape of the superhero chest. Meanwhile the open balljoints were an eyesore from most angles and the shoulders were disturbingly far behind the heads of the figures.

We also had a few really ugly designs in Tahus lower legs being trash, and all of lewas limbs looking really ugly thanks to the long bones and tiny shells.

Same here. I panic every time I remove a head piece. I have a tub full of broken parts to remind me just how easily the 2008 sockets broke. There are other parts in there, but most of them are sockets that were dodgy because either lime green or 2008.
>>
>>5402714
Alrighty then. I still believe that the trans parts pop more when they don't comprise the whole skeleton as well.

And again, they had black bones in the animation/you can't do Makuta like the 2015 Ekimu without heresy or using some black bones.
>>
>>5402638

I think Makuta is going to follow Umarak's route: a base $20 Toa-like version with the Mask of Control (Makuta the Mask Hoader?) in Winter and a $30+ Titan wearing the Mask of Ultimate Power (Makuta the... Ultimate Being?) in Summer.
Unless the main Winter bad guy is a lieutenant like LoSS or Kulta.

And by the way, which colors should Makuta have? They stayed true to Ekimu's design and showed the Mask of Control one year before its set debut, which makes me think that they at least have a rough plan for Makuta's new physical form. So are these the colors he's getting?
>>
>>5402780
Yeah but now you only have 2 trans pieces on Ekimu and 4 on Makuta. Your theory follows some logic, but the lower legs and upper arms should be trans at least.
>>
>>5402783
Do we actually know summer set prices yet, anyway?
>>
>>5402791
Summer 2016 has 5 sets just like Summer 2015, so it's possible it'll have the same total price for the wave ($180 for winter, $90 for summer).

2017 might follow the same trend.
>>
I need a trailer or something for Journey to One already. Every second without actual information is a second in which I start imagining all the best things it could possibly be, and this can only end in disappointment.
>>
>>5402788
I gave Ekimu trans blue fists, not to mention both his weapons are primarily trans blue and so is his eyestalk. His fists mirror Makuta's arms basically, since we don't have light blue hinge bones.

I dunno, I just like to make figures. Someone else thought it was Onepu.

You can't really see it here, because black lego is a bitch to photograph, but the shoulder assembly uses a 4m rod with voodoo ball, http://img.bricklink.com/PL/92907.jpg, and then connected through the torso to the gear in that order for each arm. Allows hockey chest to be connected to the "Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular Split" parts and the arms to function.

They were just cocky with Piraka. Before that, everything they fought was just Teridax's puppet or mindless drones, and Piraka caught them off-guard.

You want the Inika to look even worse? There's a bunch of bad things that could be said about them and didn't have even many panels in the comics compared to Toa Mata/Nuva (considering them separate for comparison) and the Piraka to make people like them. The books are probably different about this, but still.

Couldn't the armor adapt Tahu to look like Mata, instead of Mata Nui downgrading him?

Did that lightning energy put the Inika on par with the Nuva?

And I'm not asking about what Greg said, but I wanna know what you guys think.
>>
>>5403126
At least Tahu wouldn't because he was no longer a Toa Nuva at the end of G1s story.
>>
>>5403129
The Nuva would still be stronger. The lightning gives the Inika more or less 1.5 elements, since all their normal elemental attacks are laced with lightning, but they still wouldn't have the raw elemental power of the Nuva nor the extra abilities gained by their superior control over their elements (like setting off times detonations)
