My Entry to Bionicle Display's Bio-BuildOff-Athon Round One. Versus Overlord Galaxus, this should be an interesting round. Praesode is ~22cm, whereas Teryx is 18cm without wings outstretched.
About this creation
Round One of the Bio BuildOff-Athon can be found here.


Praesode and Teryx, an odd pairing with a bond that will last a lifetime.


Praesode is, and will most likely be, always a bounty hunter. He is one of many through the generations to be known as a Light Hunter. His fashion sense leads others to scrutiny, but he firmly states that it's more of a trophy memoram to his past deeds than an indication of his affiliation. Plus it looks cool.




One foot balance test!


Visor Down.


Visor Up!


Teryx was once a proud beast, until an encounter with several Makuta left him severely disfigured and unable to fly.


A chance encounter with Praesode was tentative at first; Teryx almost killed him. After a stalemate drew, a familial partnership formed, neither knowing why, but there was a greater good to be done.


Praesode with his contacts managed to give Teryx the ability to fly again through the use of equipment upgrades over the years. Reconstructed wings, jetpack, hardened protoderm talons and lightweight body armour.


Also a crash helmet.


Confident in Teryx's flying ability, Praesode uses him primarily as reconnaissance for particular missions. But for everything else, the pair seem quite inseparable.

Creator's comments.

I was just messing around with the idea of torso variants for Praesode, and given that I had whittled this 2 week project down into a single night, I'm surprised I got something out of it. Teryx is OK, construction is pretty simple. The head actually started off the entire look. Scrawny, almost vulture-like, I wanted a kind of hunched look because of massive wings I'd have to make. Turned out as to be expected.

Also, I just noticed when I was building, two of the other entrants also used a green palette to work with as well. Anyway, it's been a while since I did something in green, so here it is!

Oh and here is Overlord Galaxus's Entry: Drex and Lye. Be sure to check out out as well!

Quoting Toa Phosphorus Awesome! The techniques are great and praesode looks fantastic! The visor is really cool and I had one of those wow that was cool enough before the thing moved, moments. By the way for winning my contest by guessing sulphur. Do you actually have a self moc? If not please just tell me which of your mocs you would like me to build. (just not axonn the grim i don't have the pieces for that.) :)
Funnily enough, I had been thinking the last few minutes about a Self-MOC. I may make one soon, so I'll let you know.

You didn't make voting easy for me. The Head design on your master is brilliant and I haven't seen a green colour scheme from you in a while, which is why I'm sorry to say that my vote goes to Overlord Galaxus. Good luck in the contest!

I can see a fair amount of unsual building techniqes that you've used for the Rahi and Master. Most specifically I enjoyed the rahi's head and the Master Toa's chest designs. You've done well to design two companions that fight together and seem to be able to do it well in both their purpose. You expressed a strong bond through story as well as building. You get my vote.

Quoting Overlord Galaxus ( Instant Noodles) By the way, Praesode seems to have exceeded the height restriction by 2cm. Just to let you know.
Well, sometimes it can't be helped to go over, I kept them as close to 20cm each as possible. This all goes out the window when Teryx's wings are open and he's standing tall, emulating his master, which he can get up to 24cm, and a gracious wingspan of 42cm, therefore actually exceeding the allowable height anyway. If we all consider the longest dimension of any of our MOCs, we can be certain everyone exceeded to a degree. Hey, maybe he can ride him, but that would be silly. Teryx isn't a parrot :P

Quoting Cody G Nice use of those Rahkshi parts, it looks like one of those wolf-hoods for hunters. :)
Yep, that was sort-of the look I was going for. Cheers for picking out that detail.

Another great entry! I'll quickly ask Porcratus how he wants me to vote and get back to you :D Oh, answering your last question, I don't live in New Zealand. I live in Victoria; right at the bottom of Australia - time zones would be very similar.

Quoting Overlord Galaxus ( Instant Noodles) Ouch, this awesomeness is killing me! THIS IS TOO EPIC FOR ME TO TYPE IN SMALL CAPS! Awesome builds and story! I didn't really put much effort in my entry, so good luck in the contest!
Haha, I don't think either of us were concerned until the last few days of the contest. Interesting to see what comes of it. :)

Quoting Overlord Galaxus ( Instant Noodles) Wait, does Praesode ride on Teryx?
Nope, no room to ride. Plus I think the jetpack would get in the way for some... And since riding wasn't really mentioned, I didn't really concern myself with it.

Quoting Ahpolki Ihu Reminds me of Metroid.
Now that you mention it, he does look a little like Ridley. The bounty hunter theme was just purely coincidental lol

That would still be 3 hours at least. Which can really mean you're just leaving later tonight, not just on 12am on the dot lol Cheers for allowing my 11th hour entry :)

Favorite parts of this MOC are on Praesode. Love the head and the arm design you used. The feet are also pretty ingenious. I've never seen leg armor used that way. Good luck to you.
