This is my official entry for the Bionicle Display's Combiners contest! This also marks my return to the bionicle world! All of the bionicles i've built for a while now have had system elements mixed in with the technic. This moc has absolutely NO system at all! Well, i guess i better talk a bit about Shade. Shade is actually the name of an organization, other than a person. The Shade organization consists of 11 members. Each one was specially selected for optimum evilness. Since they are much stronger as one than they are as 11, they link their power to create a huge monster capable of incredible things! I was going to include photos of the combining process but if i did this page would be impossibly long. If you guys NEED see that, let me know and i'll do a video or something :)
About this creation
Here is all 11 combiners together. I decided to do 11 small mocs because i didn't want to spend a huge amount of time working on a larger piece and find out last minute that it was too tall. Every combiner is under 9" tall.
This is Arnium. He folds up to become the chest of Shade. His torso is Yuri Fassio's design. See Yuri? I told you i'd steal that one some day :)
This guys is Brute. He becomes Shade's right arm.
This is Tank. He is Shade's left arm.
Tank and Brute are brothers by the way :)
This is Helia. She is the only female in this combination. She fold up to create Shade's back.
Bohrok Fang transforms into Shade's head. He's small but extremely aggressive.
Unlike his brother, Bohrok Azia, has the lower rank job of being Shade's left foot. The higher you are on Shade's body the higher your rank. So, someone who is a foot is practically dirt compared to combiners like Fang or Helia.
Zenum has the same job as Bohrok Azia. He is the newest member of the group and therefore is has a very low rank.
Ka has the only job that's worse than being a foot and that is being the crotch! Since Shade is so large, most enemies go for the crotch. It's a very vulnerable area after all.
Ra is a very important part of Shade. He is the hips! He's kind of ugly, but when your evil you don't need to be pretty.
These two are known as the Anubus Twins. They are Shade's thighs. Like Tank and Brute, they are also brothers. Twins in fact.
-.- | -.^ | ^.0 | 0.0 |=P I want to try a combiner! Oh, wait, I already exhausted my supply of Technic black and chrome parts on Raeken: Before the Wars. Can you check him out once I upload him? How did you get the 11 Bionicles to combine so well?
awesome combiner. i made a few combiners before, but they were made before the combiners contest and i didnt feel lik either rebuilding them or making a new combiner. great job in the contest though :)
I am SO gonna do this! But alas, (nobody uses that word) I don't have enough pieces. But I agree with Chris, TRANSFORMERS! Yes I love Transformers. I have both the live action movies. (From 2007 and 2009)
TransFORMERS! More than meets the eye! "Bioniclecons, transform and merge to form... (dun dun duuun) Shadeicus!" Wow... anyone else just have an 80s flashback there? Great, now after seeing this I'm going to have to go on ebay and track down as many transformers combiners teams as I can (yes, even that useless "Defensor" that the Protectobots formed... wow, I know WAY too much about transformers.) Great work Jason! Good luck! ~ Chris.
Looked at that and thought, "Wow, that's crappy." Then I looked closer and realized it was made of a bunch of little guys. So, it all evens out in the end.
The combination would be better if it was a bit smoother.
What a horrificly vile little imp! Just when go to squash it, it turns into a them and obliterates you in mass. Then it recombines to berate you before finishing you off. An excellent job indeed. I couldn't even tell how many creatures were there initally. This will be a tough one to beat.
