This is my version of Davix at toa size, as second prize in last year's contest. In him, I tried to use several techniques employed by the Lang brothers - notably a modified, baggy looking version of Wasserin's shin design. I also recreated an old axe that originally beonged to Shinji, this time sprucing it up with blades (attatched by plate-stud-to-pinhole technique if anyone cares), red eyes and Atakus' hat for the neck. I'm surprised that worked.
Oh, and the body design is more or less the same as the design I used on Shadow and Xalos.
Last but not least, Davix is in my Spherus Magna storyline. Actually, this is an alt. universe version of him for MY universe. His storyline in a nutshell is written out below.
Name: Davix Gender: Male Species: Matoran (G2) Race: Occupation: Toa, Musician, 'Druid' Title(s): Brother (formerly), 'Druid' Prevailing Element: Air Alignment: Chaotic Good Typical Weapon: Visoraxe MOC Status: Assembled
(Blind Guardian - Bard's Song)
Davix was born to a le-matoran father and il-matoran mother on Spherus Magna. His father died during kaitagenesis (Matoran can't make babies except by forming a kaita with two and then splitting into three) and his mother rejoined with a ta-matoran husband a few years later, giving rise to his brother Callan. Being matoran, they matured quickly, reaching adulthood within three years.
Both of them found refuge in the Brotherhood of Korrothis as matoran, under Airlord Gringat and the new Firelord, Tahu. Davix was a keen musician even then.
In a freak industrial accident while working on the chronodermic engines of the Great Island, both he and his brother were transformed into toa by energised protodermis. Their co-workers were killed by the substance. Upon waking up, the two of them were given a choice to stay with Korrothis as its Toa agents, or join the burgeoning Knights of Spherus Magna in Bazhrygan. They stayed.
As toa, Davix became friends with Gringat's other servant-toa. Mainly the old Shinji and Gringat's own son, Nilmador. All three were very keen musicians.
When Gringat left to colonise the new planet, Nilmador took his place.
Later, upon the death of Mata-Nui, the Soulplague ravaged Spherus Magna's first generation matoran population. Tahu also died, killed in the blast from Mata-Nui's body. Callan became the new firelord. Having been Tahu's best apprentice, it was only right.
Later in the storyline, arguments originally between Nilmador and his sister, Tanggri, escalated wildly. The KoSM became beuracratic and oppressive towards Spherus Magna's population and it was clear to many that the old lord's daughter was not the said everyone thought she would be. Resistance forces sprang up everywhere. In disgust, Nilmador abandoned the Lords' Council with a few others. Davix, his best friend, came with him. They settled in Bota Magna (the great forest). Nilmador named his company the Druids.
A new airlord was elected, by Tanggri.
Callan, however, had other plans. He had sided with Tanggri and the loss of his brother saddened him, and, worse, angered him. Their brotherhood shattered that day. Knights and Druids were at war. Three years into the conflict, Davix and Callan's blades met.
Callan, as Firelord, was of course far more powerful. Before striking the final blow against his fallen brother, Madura stepped in front of him. Callan joined the druids.
The conflict deepened still. Two councils of Elemental Lords came to be, one in Bota Magna and the other in Bazhrygan, at war with one another.
Hey Gringat, guess what? I found an ad about this guy selling his old Bionicles and one of them was a Kongu Mahri set and I got my dad to buy them and i'll be getting them tomorrow! I can't wait to put in on my version of Gringat and post it! *explodes out of happiness*
...WOW...This is by far the best Davix I've even seen, It might even be better than the original! I really love the use of Rotor pieces and that sweet guitar axe of his :D Also his legs are insanly awesome, Keep on Brickin' ;)
Brilliant build, the shin design and visoraxe are great. Not to sound like one of those kinds of guys who always ask people to build their self-MOCs, but do you think you could take a crack at mine? I think you'd really be able to do him justice.
really awesome! Dude he looks like a titan! immensely many details and awesome designs! The shins, arm Armour and body are the main things that stand out in this moc! The guitar axe is really nice, the helmet (atakus') is really good touch! 5 on 5... like you always deserve!
