About this creation
THE CHRONICLES OF XANADU




ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2292
80% of the population wipeout. All major cities have been destroy. The war of the new Brotherhood of Makuta against the Brotherhood of Mata Nui has only brought destruction and despair for already more than a century. There is no hope...



ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2299
95% of the population wipeout. Everything is in ruins. If successful, I plan to transport myself back to the past to correct everything that has already happened. I have to stop the one eyed Giant behemoth KROLL who has singlehandedly destroyed civilization. Unfortunately, I don't have much clues yet as no existing historical data still exist on how to stop him before Kroll becomes powerful. Still I am determined...





ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2300
97% of the population wipeout. There is little time. My time chair is complete! I have consultated an old wise toa who can see the future. He told me that I have to go back on 6.08.2009 as that would be my destiny... I believe him. Its time for me to go back in time...





ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2003
I have finally accomplish what no other toa has done. To travel back in time! Unfortunately, my time machine has burned out some circuitry and caused me to travel 6 more years before my intended time of 2009. Technology to rebuild the time chair still does not yet exist. I have to think of a way to improvise and fix this...



ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2007
Its been more than four years since I went back in time. I have not yet found enough yellow cyrstals to power up my time machine. In the meantime, I have learned alot about the toas of the past. I guess I need to stick it out for two more years until then...



ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2008
Today, I resurrected > GENERAL BAROOK by sacrificing two of his surviving children. I have not told him about it as I know he will not approve of this. I had no choice. I need his skills now that I am only one year away...

ENTRY DATE: 6.08.2009
The time has finally arrived after a very long wait. I believe today is significant. I hope I will not be disappointed...

Guess what he found out???
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Aside from his ingenuis ability to time travel using his Time Chair, Xanadu also has the ability to do the following:

1. Detect aura of another(evil, neutral, good)
2. project own's good aura to others making this toa charismatic(My toa does not have the ability to corrupt)
3. Since he can make himself very charismatic, he will have many cultist who see him as demigod/god figure.
3. Ability to increase/decrease the magical abilities of someone who has.(My toa does not however have magical abilities himself)
4. Ability to drain the life force of another(attack mode)
5. Ability to heal the wounds and life force of another
6. Ability of resurrection( He however has to drain the life force of two others who has equivalent life force rating to save the one he needs to resurrect or he risk weakening himself as well as losing all of his powers for a specified time)

Creators Comment:

My intentions in making Xanadu are the following:
1. Enter it as my my final entry to the most original toa in Bionicle Flagship Display Group's Triathalon challenge.
2. Make a toa that has never been done before putting originality as my number one priority from the build and the story.

If you would notice that the following designs are somewhat new for me:
1. Head design -- I liked this simple yet striking head design. Its clean looking have this Star wars clone war look. The head and neck is compose of 8 simple small parts.

2. Chest design -- I designed it to highlight my toas power and its most striking feature to hold the central blue gem on his chest.

3. Hand Design -- This ones simple yet very cute. I wanted a totally new simple hand design that can move yet fit enough for a toa.

4, Feet Design -- I didn't want to get the look of simple feet provided by bionicle as such I designed my own feet. Its clean and has this streamlined robotic look.

5. The bionicle chair. -- I designed this chair to "fit" Xanadu and his head exactly. This chair is quite unique. Aside from the fact that a toa can sit on it. I count it also has a total of 7 functions like an expensive executive chair. It can 1) swivel 2) The whole chair can tilt 3) It can move on 4 wheels on travel mode 4) It can be stationery when it is on lock mode 5) Its back rest and head rest can be adjusted 6) The two chair arms can be moved forward and backwards 7) The whole chair can be adjusted slightly upwards.

6. The use of plastic crystal gems -- Here's a controversial one that I think some of you might not agree. But hear me out. I used this one along with the glitter 3M sticker to convey that this toa is really from the future and really unique. I believe that Lego might one day(if they get the idea) of using "crystal gem" plastic in a future bionicle series. The technology is available and it is just cheap to manufacture. The crystal gem is something I want to see in future bionicle. In the meantime, the big blue gem is Xanadu's chest is supported by his two chest and does not fall off. The small gems on him are supported by double tape.

7. The use of glitter 3M sticker -- The use of stickers in Lego is nothing new. However the use of this special colored glittered sticker which was computer cut(I have one computer vinyl cutter) accentuates and makes this toa stand out! The glitter makes it cool and futuristic.

This is awesome and great concept! But when I hear "Xanadu" I think of the 80's movie about muses and rollerskating starring Olivia Newton John. Man, I was in love with her! Anyway, keep up the great work.

Quoting Yuri Fassio This is totally 5/5. I mean, the chair alone could get a 5/5. I totally agree with your disclaimer about the gems: stranger things have happened. However, I sadly mudt point out : Theme #1 - Best Toa of an unpublished element. Rules 1.1- Your entry can't exceed Toa size (smaller than Maxilos, Hydraxon or Takanuva, and bigger than an Agori) If it is, by all means enter it :)
Xanadu is just toa size. While he may have more details than an ordinary toa. He is still smaller and fewer parts than the new Takanuva of which I have. He does not even need a leg piston to support his light weight. Compared to his bodyguard Titan General Barook, Xanadu is at least 4 inches shorter. So I think he should be acceptable to enter the contest. :-)
