Goranax: “Goranax want to destroy Yuri Fassio for making Chris make me. But no Yuri here. Goranax find someone closer…”
Goranax: “Goranax find someone! Puny human in wrong place, wrong time.”
Kelso: “Hi there, I was looking for Starbucks. Could you help me out?”
Kelso: “Oh, you’re going to give me a lift? How thoughtfull.”
Goranax: “Goranax think you do fine for Yuri substitute.”
Kelso: “Ohhh sh…”
Goranax: “Goranax should not be! Why you make Chris make Goranax?”
Kelso: “You’re… crushing… my… ribcage…”
Goranax: “Goranax go find Yuri and show him what happen… Wait, how Goranax get out? Goranax stuck in white box!??!”
Kelso: “Can’t… breath… Lungs… collapsing…”
Goranax: “When Goranax get out, me crush you under tread like this!”
Kelso: “Oh for the love of god! Merciful end come swiftly!”
Kelso: “My spleen is in my throat!”
Fourth Wall Commentary: Ok, for those of you that are system builders and have NEVER built with Bionicle before… it’s not NEARLY as easy as it looks. What you see here is the 6th, (yes SIXTH) version that I tried. The first 5 epic failures were… let’s just say… not pretty.
My fifth attempt is what’s shown below here. As you can see, I used the same basic body (with a few modifications) but no matter what, I was never happy with the legs. As you can see, the joke about crushing Kelso was always a part of the build… Enjoy these few pics of the 5th failure!
I can honestly say that I’ve developed a new appreciation for Bionicle builders. From here on out however, I’m going to leave Bionicle building to the ones who do it well!
I’ve got one more post for the games before I’m done. Time to finish it up!
Till next time true believers!
yeah, i thought this was nt really your style, i never tried bionicles myself, even thought i love robots, i have 2 nxts and the concept of your prototype s tracks looks like the one i ll go for, i love it, nice job on this!
I'm glad to see that I'm not the only AFOL who's understands the woes of mixing system and bionicle in the hopes of coming up with something half way decent. It's definitely not as easy as it looks. Yuri has infected my psyche as well with his stuff. Unfortunately my MOCs are still wallowing in the murkiness of mediocrity. Perhaps one day they will rise to the holiness of the "front page," or maybe not. Until then I simply enjoy the lovely sounds of squishiness created by minifig guts under robo-treads. Aaaaaahh.
How did I miss this, um, gem? That 5th attempt looks like a deformed cow, what's up with those legs? Your final attempt, however, was not that bad. If this was in the Mech Contest I am judging I would grant you....3 points.
The commentary was awesome, as was the moc, although I quite like the first version myself. Looks like a barnacle transformer. Nice stuff duder!
I like it

This is good! You ARE not bad at this. Don't deny yourself. We all were once were bad with LEGOs, but after time, we got better. (Sean Kenney was a pro in 5 min.) Keep trying with Bionicle, you'll get it.
That...is...disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself. I don't think that's what they meant when they said 'system'. You should be strung up by your- oh who am I kidding, you know I loved it! The amount of Bionicle that you integrated is about quadruple of what I own, so my attempt at this would have been like a night with me in the sack, disappointing for all those involved.~H
Typical Phipson's overcompensation at work here... it's got 4 of them! Chris, are you sure you didn't have a way to refine those shoulders a little better? Still, this to me is worth 3 points and change, humour included.
For a long time, I thought Bionicles were ... (censored), then I began to buy some, add it to system parts, discovered some great builders like Yuri, and I changed my mind... In fact, it's pretty cool, and like you said, not so easy. I love the whole thing, the face and threads are very cool. Great work Chris !
Great first (correction: sixth) attempt! Even the name of this category made me curl up in the featal position and hide in the corner and rock back and forth trembling... but you've pulled it off nicely! Love the "my spleen is in my throat" line!
Cool build! Gonarax does bring some Gonor..ea to the table. Like you, Bionicle is not my friend. But I did find this cool piece in Stronius's club and knee pads ... and here's the part when I say "check out my ..." but I digress. XD
