 Group admin 
Welcome to Round 2!

This round's main theme is Rahi, and of course each match will have a different sub-theme.

Size limit is 35cm in any direction.

Deadline is July 17.


1 - Chronos Omega Vs Toa Phosphorus - Abyssal Rahi: A Rahi that lives in the oceanic depths.

2 - Everox Vs Darren Y. - Bling Rahi - a Rahi that looks just FABULOUS. you know, with a lot of ornaments and stuff.

3 - Overlord Galaxus Vs Marko Petrusic - Insect Rahi: a bionicle insect creation.

4 - Dylan Mievis Vs Toa Era - Winged Rahi: any rahi that has any kind of wings.

5 - Monarth GS Vs Super Pikmin - War Mount: a Rahi meant to be ridden in battle. The rider will not be judged (except in case of a close call), but you have to show it riding the beast.

6 - Bionitech Inc Vs Banjax 2077 - Mom & Cub: an adult Rahi with its adorable offspring.

7 - Nathan Ingerson Vs The Phantom - Machine Rahi: Half beast, half vehicle.

8 - Callan Vs Felix the Cat - Monochrome Rahi: build a Rahi using only one color. If some technic bits show and it can't be helped, don't worry too much.

9 - Vored 03 Vs FEN REK - Tablescrap Swarm - Make a small swarm of tablescrap rahi, none of them can be larger than a Toa's arm.

10 - Fuzz E Vs Toa Likus - Multicolor Rahi: make a cool rahi employing at least five different colors none of which can be black, white or any kind of grey.

11 - Gringat Vs Kyle Peckham - Horrifying Rahi: a twisted Rahi who looks dreadful, disgusting unnatural.

12 - Nick V Vs Toa M. - Battlebound: a military Rahi chock full of guns and weapons.

Still here? Go build something!

11 - Gringat Vs Kyle Peckham - Horrifying Rahi: a twisted Rahi who looks dreadful, disgusting unnatural.


Oh shoot, and I thought my last matchup was tough! I am against the god of bio-moccing. This may not turn out so well.....

I'm giving it my best, and I'm not going down without a fight! Atleast I have the honor of being in the final 24!

Oh, and one question about the challenge. When you say "horrifying", does that mean the rahi has to be black? I hope there isn't a color restriction, I have some great ideas for this.

Godd luck Gat, may the best mocist win!

This is going to be problematic. As a biology student, no creatures really horrify me. Hmph. I can see vibrant colours being used though, definitely. I wish you luck, Kyle!

Hopefully this will be better than my last rahi contest entry. *cough*Hiveling!*cough*

If their natural state is folded up yes, you can do that. It would be like we prevented you from posting a humanoid because if he stands on his toes he breaks the limit.

I suppose there was slight confusion as he was answering both of your questions consecutively. So yes, it can be an insect, or any rahi you so desire. No, it doesn't have to be completely adorable, but there does have to be a degree of cuteness involved.

Each shade counts as a color. But think very well about it: very rarely 2 shades of a same color work well with other colors.

Well in that case I will be forced to resign from the competition.

I have no access to a Java-equipped device until the 17th, so even if I build an entry (which I intend to do), I can't post it.

I did receive a suggestion to send pictures of the MOC to someone else to post for me; however, I'm not sure if I'm confident with that strategy.

It is possible, however unlikely, that in some event that I'll have sufficient computer access at a hotel next week, so we'll have to see about that.

Even stereotypical horror can be comedic to others.

Well, as Chris Yee said, the Horror theme is extremely hard to pin down. Especially as I'm a biologist, I don't regard things like dogs or spiders scary - in fact, even the most vile of the Earth's creatures hold a curious kind of beauty to me.

Buildwise, I have a few key thematic pieces built, and a head, but no underlying body plan and structure to hold those parts in place yet. Won't disclose quite what I'm making though - want that to be a surprise.

Well, there is still a week left. Who knows what you can do in that time. My build already hit the max dimesions for this round: 35 centimeters. Now the only thing I can do is either build up or to the side, not out.

I'm going with a little bit of classic Bionicle canon in my entry, expect a Krahna or two and maybe a Kraata in my entry. I think about the only thing I can say about it is that it uses lots of tires.

I may post a WIP on Flickr, but you'll have to find my Flickr page to see it. ^_^


I won't peek if you do.

I actually abandoned the idea with the one Kraata I have, I went with my 6 Krana. Hopefully my ingenius usage of tires can help me in this round. It's not gonna be posted yet!

Oh, I figured out how to post a WIP on Flickr without you seing it. Only my contacts will see it when I change the privacy settings. :3

Thanks for the props Phantom. I was hoping we wouldn't face each other so soon, but oh well. Let's just both do our best and let the judges decide. Good luck and good MOCing!

Well, if you were running against me, and I saw you posting an early entry with 5 MOCs, I'd take my time and bury you under 20 to 50 tablescraps.

Actually we reset the final submission date to be the 17th, so still have some days left. I know Nick V's happy with that as he's been preoccupied with the LABS 2012 (Lego Annual Brick Show) with his display. I should know, I've been sitting next to him for the whole day looking after my display lol

Well. Sorry for the inactivity. My family and and I have had a very stressful time the last 2 months, as we were packing our things to move across Canada. All our stuff( including my pieces) has been shipped out to our far away location sealed in storage. Unfortunately, we don't move in until mid-September. Right now, I'm living in my relatives house, and them having small children, also own bionicle pieces. Now, I was thinking of just sucking it up and quickly trying to build something out of what I have, but I'm out camping for the last time with my best friend during the course of next week. Thanks for taking the time to hear my situation, so I could explain why I will have to drop out. If I had known that my summer would turn out to be such a crazy mess, I wouldn't of joined the cup. Next year, I will certainly bring my game. Thanks everyone.

I can sortof understand where he's coming from though. While I have seen the MOC, and it's not that bad, we all have our own standards we stick to. So if it's not up to snuff then it won't be shown. I've done that a number of times. Tends to feel the same as an unfinished creation. So bow out gracefully and prepare for the next one with redoubled strength and vigour to last the rounds.

Under what criterion were the Creations judged? What makes a creation seem more 'original' or what makes it look 'better' than the other, or what makes it look 'half-axed' might I add? It's kind of important for us to know what we're getting votes based on. If it's all based on personal opinion among nine judges... then I have serious reconsideration for this contest. I didn't accept an invitation to an 'American Idol' style contest.

No, its not personal opinion, because, as you might have already realized, we are all a bunch of machines who make decisions based on deep calculation, using semiotics to make subjective relations to advanced physics, history and engineering...

But seriously now, we do have some criteria, we analize build, design, color scheme, presentation, originality(wich is someting quite subjective), how it followed the theme, and, of course, how we feel about it. because, you know, we ARE humans, we HAVE opinions, no one can escape from that. And we have different opinion, thats the point of having more than just one judge, after all.

Well I hope my answer was satysfying, and I hope yo're not doign this just because you seem to have lost this round.

You can do better than that, man. This contest was put here for improvement, not a pat on the back for everyone. The judges are simply staying true to their own opinions. They've been here for quite some time so they've got to have some authority. I don't think you should quit on them or yourself.

Yeah, pretty much what Chris said. There were certain parts that I did like, but as a whole it was really unfinished and simple, a product of a poorly-chosen colour scheme. I think if I had chosen to opt for an all-black colour scheme like Callan then it would've almost certainly turned out better. I don't think people realise how difficult it is to build something in only one colour! So yes, thanks for being so understanding, Chris. As for the others, I did not drop out because I was up against a 'great MOCist'; I consider Callan to be my equal in MOCing. Hopefully I'll still be building this time next year when the next one comes, and get a little bit further!

Best of luck to those who make it to round 3, I'll be waiting to see who will win ;)
