My Dark Hunter wave continues after a short break :D And I've returned with a good one :D Vanisher! I hope you all like him as much as I do!
About this creation
Occupation: Dark Hunter
Power: Vanisher has the power to open intradimensional gates through which he can walk, traveling great distances in the blink of an eye, and appearing to vanish to the observer. He cannot, however, use these gates to travel to other dimensions. He also has the power to open dimensional fluctuations in order to trap energy attacks. He can keep these for as long as he wishes, and then release the energy contained. Many times he has defeated enemies with nothing but their own power.
The Shadowed One's Description: "Independent, powerful, and with a nasty habit of disobeying orders, Vanisher would have been executed long ago if he were not so successful."
Title(s): Monster, Assassin, Spy, Dark Hunter, Double Agent
Weapon(s): Claws, large Staff
Story: Due to Vanisher's independent and willful nature, the Shadowed One had assigned more loyal members of the organization to accompany him and keep him under control, much like he did with the traitorous Nidhiki. These partners all ended up dying mysteriously on their missions with Vanisher. Ordinarily, Vanisher would have been executed for this behavior, but since he is an extremely efficient operative and gets results, the Shadowed One let him live.
Recently, the leader of the Dark Hunters came to suspect that Vanisher worked for the Makuta, which is why the Shadowed One sent him to the nearest fortress of the Brotherhood to gather intelligence. On this mission, Vanisher was spied on by another Dark Hunter, and a third one was sent to spy on both.
Vanisher evacuated the Great Spirit Robot along with the remaining surviving residents of the Matoran Universe after Teridax's death to live on Spherus Magna.
Vanisher is independent, powerful and insubordinate, so much so that he was accused of being a double agent for the Brotherhood of Makuta.
It's Vanisher! That one we've been so looking forward to all these years!(If anyone can tell me what I just quoted, I'll build your Self MOC, or Revamp the old one :D)
Another look at Vanisher, he was not an easy build, I can tell you that! I kept wanting to do like Pho did on his, and in doing that I kept ruining the MOC, but after a couple attempts, I did it the way I wanted :D
A back shot, I added the cape to give a more evil feel, Or you could say it's a web of shadow instead :P
His leg design, much like Pho's but done my way and made smaller :D I also tried to make these look more like the originals :D
A closer look at both his feet and lower legs, That's one thing Pho didn't do on his, He didn't keep the original clawed foot design :D Who's do you think are better?
His whole upper half :D
A better look at his torso, I didn't have a lot of purple bionicle pieces, but had heaps of system ones, so I figure it was the perfect time to use them :D
His mask, Just like the original, I added the red rubber band for his eyes :D
His arm design now, gotta love those claws!
A closer look at his upper arm :D I never realised how helpful those HF cores are, anyone else with me on that?
His beautiful claws :D So happy I went with this design :D I did about 5 other designs before I got to this one :D
His wings, not as good as Pho's or the original, but I still think they get the job done :D
A back shot of the wings :D
Now a back shot of Vanisher without his cape (Web of Shadows)
The one thing Pho's Vanisher needed, his original staff :D
The staff's head :)
Vanisher: Ah at last JoJo, you can finally meet your doom!
JoJo: PFFT!! You've said that about three times now, I don't believe you!
Vanisher: QUIET YOU!
Phosphorus: I swear I've seen you before!?
Vanisher: You must be mistaken!
Him and the Shadowed One :D Always love these shots :D
Vanisher: Rate and comment or die by my claws!
Little Green Alien: THE CLAW!!!
Vanisher: What!... urgh... Just do what I say!
You heard the man!
Don't forget to rate and comment!
Thanks for viewing!
Till next time ;)
Certainly a chaotic build, and a VERY threatening one at that. The use of purple is good, as it is somewhat of a lost color when it comes to Bio-mocing. And of course, the mask is beautifully disturbing with that red rubber band making an evil eye-piece thing.
question? how many toy story aliens have you? i ll use them in my story, i mixed their faces with atlantis crews torsio [green] and legs, they re called the POLICHINELS! they are the most powerful humanoid race of the universe! as they posses the FORGET weapon! once zaped by their weapons...you forget everything! and stay in a highly suggestive state! + they are also the JOKERS of the universe too! they incessantly make fun of every nation in the system! lol!
the first mech is very well built! i wonder how many figs he could hold in his claws...? lol! the color scheme hurt him though, white is not best with the other colors i think, and any of those mechs could do serious action sequences for an attack on your previous base!!! would it help if i prayed?...lol! ok, please ben! great work ben!
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, 1 DAY B4 ME! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NOW I GOTTA GO PEE. JK happy birthday bro, enjoy it! How old r u now? I'm 14 tomorrow! BTW, i might make cossy and make u a b-day special with Luja (my self moc) If i can!
Thanks guys! Austin if you look at the fourth comment, that's me :P I don't understand Devon, I'm not too sure what piece you mean, I think your talking about Ball joints, but I'm not sure, anyway, I get most of my pieces from a life time of collecting Lego sets :D But if I need a boost, I go to ebay or Bricklink :D OHHH!!! Sounds epic L :D
first I want to say that this is a great moc and I wonder how you find the time to do this then I have a Question um what is the lego term for the hip piece on most of yours and my mocs and then where do you buy your parts
Okay, so the one I might use is the one I have the pieces for. It's the second one, the only pieces I don't have are the greay shoulder thing, but I'm fairly sure I can find a replacment. Again thanks bro ;) (BTW like my new Buddy Icon? :D)
Hey Ben, I wanted to ask, do you think you could do a How-To or post me a link to an easy-to-build custom torso that doesn't use many pieces please? I really want a custom torso. thanks if you can bro ;)
hey Cossy.I am a big fan of your shadow hunters and I´m gld to see a new one.this one looks great
I wanted to built something with this mask a few weeks ago and now you came with this fantastic guy.my favourite is still ancient(and he will ever be)
really great work
Love it but my only complaint is that the leg bottoms are to bulky and make him look like hes standing strait up, unless he is and then in that case you should pose him so hes hunched to look more dark hunter like. But over all great job! Iv loved this series sence I was 4, and seeing some one who still likes it enough to try and keep it alive just is awsome, you've done great!
Ok, you win. lol. I still can't believe you replied to ALL of them. It wasn't as long of a comment as I thought. Now I just need to get some parts for Cossy Blue Lord Of Flames. He's going to be fun to make! Anyways I just commented again so then this'll have one more 'I Like It's. Again this is one good Dark Hunter. Great job!!!
I accept your dare Gril :D Thanks Callan! Already commented! Thanks Galaxus! That means a lot ;) Glad you liked that Cody ;) Nope, that isn't it Takakru, sorry. Thanks Johann! Glad you like him ;) HAHA Thanks Pho! Even in a piece crisis, you did great! Glad you like mine ;) Thanks Legofreak! I gave a link to the original Legobob, it's right after the bio :D Thanks for commenting! Thanks Keegan ;) See Gril, half way there :P And I have no idea how I get all these likes! I'd tell you if I did :P And that isn't it either Evox, sorry. Nice one Pure ;) Thanks Jan! Glad you like them ;) Thanks Gat! Glad you like him ;) Now that's a bit mean Pie, maybe next time you should also say something nice! Will do Biomanic! HAHA Thanks Chaos! Sorry if your brain is melting! Thanks to you to Chopperskull ;) Well, I'm done with this massive comment! (I win Gril :P)

it was shadowgear in his mata nui reveiw
Nice job! And you quoted from the Black Adder episode 4 chapter 6, where Edmund says: Unless I'm very much mistaken, soon we will at last be making the final Big Push -- that one we've been so looking forward to all these years.
THE CLAW! gotta love toy story aliens! LOL! Great moc, the designs are really well, and a lot of accurate colors and looks to the original. I freak out every time someone makes something epic like this, i feel like..... like a crumb compared to a delicious muffin. LOL 5 on 5, but you deserve higher!
Absolutely nuts. I love it. Always loved Vanisher as a character - he's in my own storyline don't-che-know. Looks tall, imposing, evil AND HE HAS GREEBLES!! :D Uh, this one, I mean. I haven't made Vanisher.
Great job(as always)!!!!! Dude, this guy is AMAZING. I am so jealous of all the purple pieces that you have. The part with "THE CLAW" cracked me up. I am assuming that you won't reply to this long list of comments, but dare you to. If you do I'll make Cossy Blue Lord Of Flames. But you don't have to if you don't want to, Ben. I probably will make him anyways, but it's still fun to make a dare. Again great job! All the greebles that you add into these things are incredible!! I have a question for you that I have been meaning to ask you for quite some time now. HOW DO YOU GET SO MANY COMMENTS SO FAST???? Other than the fact that you have like 200 something people that call you a favorite. Anyways now that's a long comment. Great job!!!!
Dude! This is the best!...Well, maybe. Your other Dark Hunters are pretty wicked too. I'm in awe of all the detail you put on him! It's amazing! I'd probably do something similar if I could. :P Love it! Keep up the epic work buddy!
("The Claw!") XD
Your just punched mine in the face kicked him a few times them threw him out the door and ran him over with a car. The detail in this i phenomenal and the arms really look cool. I made vanisher on a piece crisis an i actually on had about 30 pieces left when i finished. (I made Svovl before vanisher) Anyway my vanisher has been ripped from my story and destroyed so i'm thinking up a new character to fill his place. Fantastic job.
So..... freaking.... AWESOME!! I googled your quote and your Vanisher was the first thing that popped up, so I'm clueless. :D Keep up the great work, and the Forgotten Tale finale is coming in a couple of hours! :D
Wow, This is really cool!
Lot's of purple! How do you get so much!
I have, like, 6 pieces that are purple!
Well, enough ranting,
Great work! I really like the rubber band idea on his mask (At least I think that's a rubberband!)!
I laughed sooooo much at "The claw" bit!
