Growing up in Metru Nui was fun for some matoran. One of those was Folfo, who was a rare type of matoran that only had been heard about in legends. She was a dual element matoran, which granted her special powers. She lived in Ta-Metru, and learned her trade of disk-making from an expert disk-maker named Ulas. It was only until she was able to go into the Great Furnace that she discovered her second element. Ta-matorans could survive near the Great Furnace, but could only do so for short periods of time. This was because of high sulfur levels. Folfo went into the Great Furnace one day. The door that she walked in was one that locked from the outside. The door accidentally shut and she was trapped inside. If she was a normal matoran, then she would have died in a few hours. She survived in the furnace for two days, and when she was found by Ulas, he expected to find a body. Instead he found a happy matoran who walked out of the Furnace. Ulas figured out that her other element was sulfur. When Toa Lhikan heard about this, he found her and gave her a toa stone. She was transformed into a toa, and was told to be the protector of the Ta-Metru. Since Lhikan's disappearance, she had to take his place in helping Turaga Dume keep order in Metru Nui. It was only until Teridax revealed himself as Dume that she strayed away from her job as a toa. Teridax defeated her, and took her powers. She was left for dead, but woke up an hour later. She then realized that her powers could not be taken from her. After the fall of Teridax, she went with the Toa Metru and settled on Mata Nui. Life is good for her there. She helps organize bamboo-disk throwing competitions and kohli matches. She is best friends with Jaller.

Now for the body breakdown.

FOURTH WALL: This was a really fun build. Trying to put something together during a Bio-block is hard, especially when you can't think of anything good to build. This took three days to build, and was a pain to get proportioned correctly. Overall, I think I did very well. Folfo's name is a combination of the Italian words 'fuoco' and 'zolfo'. 'Fuoco meaning 'fire' and 'Zolfo' meaning 'sulfur'. She is my first ever Fe-moc on MOCpages. She has a posable torso, arms, legs, and head, the whole Sha-bang. Goodluck to Grimblade. May the best man win.
Constructive criticism and comments are appreciated. KP out!
Thanks! How did you see the pictures? MOCpages is down at my house (probably worldwide), and unless you looked it up on Google or something, then you wouldn't see a thing. Oh, and just to let you know, I'm in Round 3 against Adam Toh. Wish me luck!
Quoting Grimblade master of doom
like it. it looks cool but it looks like if you messed with it to much it would fall apart..... anyways good luck =)!
Actually, the only spot were it comes close to falling apart is the torso/leg ball joint connection. I did this for a reason. I did it so I could have the moc break apart for better photo taking. As fragile as she may look, it is very sturdy. Good luck.
