The sixth Toa Rela, the Veteran Force, Avillo, Toa of Gravity!
About this creation
Occupation: Toa Rela, Protector of Rela Nui
Titles: the Veteran Force, 'Ka-Ba'
Primary Mask: Kanohi Hau, Mask of Shielding- casts a shield of energy around the user, but does not defend against ambushes.
Toa Tool: Gravier (sword)
Weapons: GravGun, shield
Alignment: Chaotic good
Affiliation: Toa Rela
Personality: Avillo is tough and persistent. He'll always persevere through a fight no matter the odds. Since they know little about him, the Toa Rela don't completely trust Avillo, although he himself knows that he is trustworthy. As the Toa Rela's tactician, Avillo concocts brilliant strategies that rarely fail.
Bio: Not very much is known about Avillo's past. He has vague memories of battling an army of Makuta with his Toa team, who he believe are all dead. Avillo now thinks that the Makuta used a Mask of Amnesia and then a Mask of Hibernation against him. After that he remembers nothing, until he was awoken by the Toa Rela. He decided to join them, seeing as he no longer had his own team. The Toa Rela discovered Avillo while attempting to destroy the Makuta-kara and their demonic creations. Soon after the Makuta-kara's defeat, Avillo and the rest of the Toa Rela began a journey across much of the known universe, in search of the Lost Being known only in legend as Un'duul. They defeated some of the worst Makuta ever known; destroyed insurgent Visorak hordes; and ended a plague that had fallen upon Spherus Magna. These and many more were the tasks of the Toa Rela; and all of these tasks they carried out, until finally they were, quite literally, all lost to history.
(All will be revealed in the story I'm working on!)
And here he is, the Veteran Force, Avillo!
Avillo's sword, Gravier.
Posing with Gravier, which has the ability to draw nearby objects towards it.
His GravGun. I used two different HF gun parts, to great effect. I really like this weapon! :D
Not where you want to be. >:D
Avillo's shield. An afterthought, really, but works well.
Don't. Move. An inch.
Levitating a Pakari with his gravity powers.
Overview shot. Like all of the Toa Rela, Avillo is almost entirely custom.
Arm. The only non-custom things on Avillo are his forearms, which are just armored Metru arms.
Back of the arm. Greebs! :D
Legs. Like I said on Toriaze, I love that Skrall armor.
Back view of the legs. I made the lower legs just to accommodate those large Racers engines, but they turned out awesome!
Legs without armor.
Torso. I used gunmetal armor, but at some point I might buy Joker to give Avillo a purple overhaul!
Waist. Pretty simple.
Back. Pretty good, and both the sword and gun can be simultaneously holstered.
Torso minus armor. It's... skinny. The HF armor bulks it up a lot.
Without armor. The Stars feet that hold his upper arms together slightly obstruct posability, but not anything too bad.
The custom head. It's a variation of the one I usually use.
Epic design for a moc like this :D
Love the sword, shield and gun.
chest design is FABILUS :D
Oh i used Pirai's lower leg design that i used before, but i created a whole new way of making it epicer :D
Nice! and congrats on MOC Of Ze Week! You should get Joker, a purple overhaul would rock! One thing though: his shoulders seem a little low, it just looks... odd. Great MOC though, excellent work! 5/5!
Excellent work! Congratulations, this has been chosen as Moc of Ze Week in the group "Ze Bionicle Mocists". http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/18002 Your picture is on the group's main page. Congrats! - KP

Those HF armor pieces behind his shoulders look somewhat awkward, but the rest is really cool! Nice choice of element. Also, where are those long pieces that make up the blade from?
Thank you. I wanted to use the balljoints that stuck out behind his shoulders. The blades are from the Ninjago Rattlecopter.
