Xalos The Vulture King
The First Feathered Bionicle on MOCpages! Wheeee! Edit: AND MOCpages' 4,000th Bionicle! WHOOPEEEEE!!!
About this creation
A very intimidating, vulture-lke form of Xalos, often employed when he has to scare his enemies, such as an army of Skrall. His bloody bone weapons and gruesome, jagged beak a frightening sight to all but the hardiest of soldiers.

This was originally a request for a Xalos that uses Phantoka wings (see his tail) and Krika's head (look at the top of his Bone Halberd). I also wanted to build custom wings, and I had the genius idea of using real feathers! Not very well preened though. He has been through a lot of battle, remember. His armour echoes patterns used in the previous 6 models.

His leg, foot and torso designs are unique to me, but the head and arms are not very inspired... Although I did come up with the head only by looking at a photo of the zyglak. I didn't look at the instructions. I can't find them. Help?

Ispiration for Xalos comes from:
The Edge Chronicles' Shryke Nations. Read the Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddel if you haven't already. They're a little young for me now, but I loved them in Primary School =] If you're one of the younger members of MOCpages, look around. Last I saw, Tescos was selling them.


ThE zYgLaK.
if anyone knows where I can find the istructions, could you post a link maybe in a comment? I've searched Bionicle.com indefinitely and haven't found the slightest hint...






Grr



His main weapon, the dreaded Halberd, Boneshatter.



Sleeping...



A shot I originally wanted for the main pic, but I liked the other one better.



Wings! Activate!



Wings! Terminate!



And here you can see his other weapon, a dagger named Mercy's Talon.

You like? I know I do!

Quoting John the Imaginative Hey Gringat, have you ever played Warcraft III?

Quoting Jon Willoughby Awesome! It really has that 'seasoned and ancient' look to it, like that decrepit Transformer Ancient (the one that turns into an SR-71 Blackbird) from Revenge of the Fallen. Nice work! Instructions?
I doubt it. I've forgotten how to make him now :( Been months since I scrapped him. And I haven't seen Revenge of the Fallen yet either. Which is silly, because Transformers 1 was, like, the best movie ever :D

This is amazingly awesome! i love the feathers. first time i've ever seen that. Oh,yeah if your going to build a dragon that stands on two legs, make the thighs as thick as possible. i started my radak dragon with thin legs but they couldn't hold the weight of the body, so i tripled the thickness. they hold the weight really well and they make room for loads of armour.

This is one of the best MOC's I've seen so far. Btw, if you want Zyglak building instructions, just search on Google. One of the first few links listed is a good one.

Quoting Ty Construct AMAZING! SIMPLY SPECTACULAR! This creation is no doubt your best work. I love how you incorporated feathers into the design of the wings. If you don't mind, could I use the wing design in future creations?
Dude, feel free to copy any of my techniques. I steal yours all of the time XD
