My entry for round 2 of the Bionicle: A New Beginning contest.
About this creation
O.K.! Back-story time!
Waireron is a member of the original Toa team of Crag Magnus. On one particular mission, he was separated from his teammate, his mask getting knocked off in the process. It is only through the help of a roncardor that he survived. After the mission he befriended the roncardor that saved him, naming it "Ronky" (his teammates think this is the most idiotic name ever, but their not the ones with a grenade launcher). Waireron is able to communicate with his familiar using his Kanohi Rau (Mask of Translation), which has been modified to allow Waireron to breathe underwater.
Alright, enough. Now some pictures.
Chest. Fun Fact: These tubes do absolutely nothing.
He is equipped with propellers which can be used to speed him through water, create a water current to use against aquatic enemies, or to fan himself on a hot,dry day.
His weapon, a concussion grenade launcher.
A closeup shot of his head and upper body. The shoulder armor can move to allow the arms more motion.
His roncardor helps him travel through water and occasionally battles with him.
This is an incredible creation. Both of your entries to the contest were absolutely amazing. You should really be proud of these. The only reason you came in second was that the proportions on this one seemed just slightly off. If it were shorter and had more detail on the legs, I think this would definately have won. Not that it was bad, it's just that Chris's was a bit better. Congrats on second place. God bless, Drew
I'm not a Bionicle fan in any way but somehow i really enjoy looking at this. Very nice!
By the way, i don't know what those crazy danes over at LEGO where thinking, "Toa" = "toilet" in swedish. But i guess you can find made up words that have different meanings many languages :)
Any how, good work!
