A Mecha for the Matoran workers of Ghetta Nui. Its main purpose was to move large objects in and between the many refineries in Ta-Ghetta. Enjoy!

This was originally going to be my entry to a MOC-off between M G and myself. Unfortunately, the contest fell through. I still have this to post though.
The Multi-Suit was a huge success in Matoran innovation, and eliminated the need for a diverse arsenal of machinery. Its primary function was moving and loading equipment and goods, but aiding in repairs and rescue were also within operating parameters. On a more unofficial level, these mecha were occasionally used for organized fights between shifts. Participants of these mech battles were severely punished when they were caught, but the bets were enough to make it worth the risk.
When the Gang Wars broke out, the Dark Flame utilized stolen Multi-Suits to combat other gangs, and eventually overthrow the powerful Toa Umillu. Most of the Multi-Suits have been destroyed, but they have been seen on occasion during the larger street fights that the Dark Flame has participated in. Undoubtedly, the mecha were a crucial asset to the Dark Flame's rise to power as the dominant gang in Ghetta Nui.
Backstory aside, I am rather proud of how this turned out. The legs are where it all started, and they are my favorite part.
The arms were the last things built, and are my least favorite. However, they do the job.
The pickaxe (NOT allowed in the organized mech fights).
The open driver's seat allowed for wide visibility. Protection of the driver was less of a concern than protection of the Matoran who worked around the mech. Injuries were common during hectic hours, when safety was overlooked to meet the quota.
Floodlights. Useful for working in the dark.
The back view, which I am fairly pleased with.
Size comparison with the driver, Ifex.
Size comparison with Ifex and Ramar.
Speaking of Ramar, I redid his upper legs! Yay!
Much more custom than before.
And sleek, too!
Now to Ifex!
Species: Matoran (Fe-Matoran)
Mask: Kanohi Forta, Mask of Armoring
Weapons: Multi-Suit, hand scythe
Gunmetal and Red. I like.
And he's macho too!
Bye, thanks for viewing, and let me know what you think!

This hardsuit is AWESOME. Particularly like the ankles and feet, and I know you don't like your arms, but I thought they weren't bad at all, especially from the wrist down. =) SUPER work, m8!

Amazing. Wonderful work on the feet, and that pickaxe. I can't help but be a bit disappointed that the chest won't fire rhotuka spinners though... The empty circle just looks so desolate to me.
The suit is amazing. no offense, i only wanna help you, but the arms are too small in my opinion, and the legs are to far apart. i know the legs were intended to be so far apart, but it kinda looks weird
This is great. It would have beaten whatever terrible entry I would have put out. I never even considered building a mech suit. Eevn though this Moc Off fell through, don't worry, I'll challnege you for real one day, count on it!
Whoa!! that is AMAZING!! that is so cool how you made a mech out of bionicle!! and how you can fit a matoran in it! so COOL!! the legs are my favorite too! I posted a new version of my self moc, if you have the time, anyway, GREAT job!!
