SMT R1: Pirai the Iron Wolf!
So when your opponent has a Bulk 3.0 helmet and titles his self moc, "The Iron Wolf", what choice did I have but to make him a real wolf?
About this creation
Here's my links to the SMT and to Chronos' incredibly creative version of Callan.

Name: Pirai
Gender: Male
Species: Matoran
Race: Fe Matoran
Element: Iron
Occupation: Continuing to protect Rela Nui
Title(s): Toa, Brother,
Kanohi: Reko, Mask of Teleportation
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Moc Status: Disassembled(Sorry, he was SO expensive. :/)

Callan’s Story: Pirai was a great member of the Toa Rela, known often by two words: Reckless and Reliable. All of this changed, however, when Pirai was knocked into a strange vat of chemicals during one of the Toa Rela’s missions to stop a scientist who was killing Rahi for his own experiments. The rest of the team thought him dead, and accomplished the rest of their mission without him. But Pirai lived, but at a strange cost: The vat must have been some animal like enhancer, for now Pirai had all the instincts of a wolf, and a similar body structure as well.
Pirai feared rejection from the Toa Rela, but his sense of justice has kept him protecting Rela Nui alone during the night, where nobody can mock him. If you hear a howl during a night in Rela Nui, there’s no doubt it came from Pirai.

Time for some pictures!

Side shot of wolf mode!

Rear view..

Front view...

Pirai: Urg... I can do this!

Pirai can stand on his two back legs for only moments, but his tail will keep him supported for much longer..

No, I didn't forget the category for Greeblage, but I mostly over greebled certain spots while leaving other spots more smooth. But this chest I'm very happy with! :D

Back, also greatly pleases me! :D

Side view...

Action pose!

Pirai: RAURGH!!

Wolf action pose 1

Wolf action pose 2!

Now, who will win?! Callan Lord of Fire, or Pirai the Iron Wolf? I guess the judges will deci..

Oh, never mind that I guess. Pirai wins.
Callan: Ooh, Ow!! THAT HURTS!! Mercy, mercy, MERCY!!!

Cossy: Today is a sad day, because although we have gained a pal in Pirai, his pieces forced us to scrap Vored.
Callan: He'll surely be missed...
Pirai: Indeed he will.

Vored: I was always a good guy, pretty much perfect in every way...
Callan: VORED?!? How are you alive?!?

Vored: Duh, Chibification block head! And although not the best, I think it fits me alright!

Chibi Vored front view..

Chibi Vored back view.. What the heck?!
Vored: Ah, that tan piece is a tatoo from my crazier days... nah, Caleb was just too lazy to find a black one.

Comparison with Pirai!

Pirai: Hyuk!!
Vored: Sorry fella, but I'm hungry for wolf meat! You might come back as a Chibi if you taste good!

Vored: See you later guys!
Pirai: Uhgh... Bye!

Fourth Wall Commentary: WOW, I kicked back to much. I built only one leg until 3 days ago, when I was smart enough to actually work on the rest of it! Just finished it and photographed it yesterday. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, despite a couple uses of HF bones. Hope you guys like it too, and wish me luck against Chronos Omega! Judges, do your stuff!

Please comment and rate if you like him! Later people! :D

Epic moc like the body and the color look great with the moc

By wasn't meant to be a wolf, I meant that Pirai doesn't have any wolflike qualities other than the mask, really. Maybe that was a bit unreasonable...

Wow, great version of Pirai! And guess what... I BUILT JOJO!!! Heres the link: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/309079 Hope you like him!

Steve,if you look carefully, you'll see that there are greebles INSIDE his torso. If you ask me, that could not have been an afterthought. The feet could have been built better, but these ones really do bring out the wolf in his appearance. Also, the real moc is called the iron wolf. How, then, could he have never been meant to be a wolf? Anyway, callan, I love that torso! Very creative with the matoran head! You really gave him a wolflike appearance, I'd rate this a... 6 out of 5 :D

Quoting Steve The Squid
Actually, I tried to work with a smooth wolflike build yet combine it with greebling. Although it seems this didn't do for you, so I respect your opinion. But never meant to be a wolf?! Really? He's got a wolf HELMET for crying out loud, so I don't really think that can be used as a critique. Yeah, I probably could've made him stand with more time, but I've been busy lately and this contest didn't come before my other priorities. I respect your opinion and don't blame you for voting for Chronos, he deserves it, but some of your critiques seem a bit unreasonable.
  February 12, 2012
My vote went to Chronos mainly because it looks like greebling was an afterthought, and you started by creating him as a wolf, which in my opinion was never meant to be. The greebles just don't seem to fit with a lot of other smoother parts you have on it as well. Also, I think that with a bit more time and effort you could get him to stand freely, perhaps suggesting a rushed build. I can't know for sure, but... my vote went to Chronos for that.

Brilliant greebles, that Tohunga head is great. I love the sleek-yet-mechanical look.

Very cool! The transformation is awesome! and I love all the greebles (Didn't think they would work but they do) Only critique I have is maybe some custom limbs, I feel they are a little skinny at the moment. Anyway nice work :D

Cool! A while back, I made something like this,was gonna make it my self-moc, but I replaced it with something better, here, check it out! http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/308707
  February 10, 2012
Nice, very nice. Normally I don't like too much geeble, but you pull it off very nicely. I laughed when you chibified Vore, here I thought he turned back into a matoran, HA~! An as a shameless self promo, keep an eye out for my MOC page, I'm turning Pirai into a Hero Factory hero.
  February 10, 2012
You already got my rating, and Im voting for you in the contest. Again, fantastic work!

Quoting Chronos Omega
Not really, although I don't think anyone judging would be basing his decision upon that, but rather that the wolf form is a creative idea that goes with his mask. But if you're trying to tell the people who think this is better than yours what you said about the mask, I definitely don't blame you. :)

Quoting Chronos Omega
I definitely see what you mean. Of course it's fine to say that! My main purpose in building him was to have you like him, which I'm very glad it seems I've accomplished. No matter the outcome, you have an incredible Callan and deserve the win just as much as I do! Good luck, Chronos!
  February 10, 2012
I sort of meant that. But what I was trying to say is that it seems to me like people like this version better because it better accomplishes being wolflike. That is true; it most certainly does, but that wasn't actually the intention of the original. And as such, your version actually being a wolf is extremely creative, and I'm not saying that I don't like this MOC- this is amazing.
  February 10, 2012
I just want to point out to some people that the original had the mask as its only wolflike quality. Yes, Callan's does make it more wolflike, and is awesome, but that was not the intention of the original. Sorry Callan, I hope you don't mind me saying this.

Quoting Popcorn . Incredible! I'm really liking how you just greebled that torso to death. Looks great. I'm not too sure about those paws or feet. I'm not too sure why but they don't look right. But seriously that's really the only flaw that I can see. Great job yet again! By the way, I don't know if you saw my question on your last MOC, so I'll ask it again. Would you prefer gold or silver for when I make Callan? I need to know asap because I'm planning on ordering those pieces real soon. Anyways, great job, Cal!
Wow, thanks for wanting to make him, I really appreciate that! I'm not really sure whether you should go gold or silver, so I'd just say go with whatever you think is best. Honestly I just don't know and I'd be happy to see either! Thanks again for your critiques, have a good day! Thank you everybody!

Man, this is really great! You made Chronos's self MOC look more like a wolf. I may even like this better than the original =D (Sorry Chronos, I'm just being honest with my opinion and Callan is a great builder indeed) =p

Quoting Chronos Omega This is amazing! Great job on all of this, thank you so much! :D Just so you know, it calls him "Rela" once in the bio.
Quoting Daniel Janei This is better than Chronos Omega's version.
What!?
Oh, woops! Fixed that now! I don't really agree with you, Daniel, although I thank you for thinking so. After all, at least Chronos made a custom head!

You certainly built this fast! Well done on the lupine look. Captures it brilliantly - although at this stage there's nothing separating Pirai from just an Iron Wolf in general. This is kinda how I imagine them to look in the first place.

Quoting Johann Dakitsch Very cool. As said above, its greebled, but still maintain a fairly clean look.I very much like the torso, and the use of that matoran head, and do I see an illegal connection there on the waist? I'm still not sure about the tail,as it looks a bit too massive for me, and he could still have more of a neck. Anyway, nice creation, I say you win this fight.
Thanks for your thoughts and critiques! I agree with you with pretty much everything you said, although I'm not exactly sure where you say the illegal connection is.... *shrugs* Yeah, a better tail would be what I'd do next, but a longer neck might ruin the two leg mode, y'know? Too bad I have to scrap this guy. :/

Nice! This is a really good creation! I love the use of pieces, and the color scheme is really clean and spread out! Good luck in the contest! I know you're not taking requests, but do you think it would be possible for you to build Toa Andron? That would be really awesome! Again, great MOC!

Very nice version of Pirai! He keeps the color sheme, yet he looks so different when he is in his wolf form. And so much detail, like this 2003 Matoran head in the body! The claws are also very well done. The proportions are just right, and the use of the gears are fantastic! Too bad you dissasembled Vored, tough. His chibi form is somehow funny, having legs as a torso in one time. Cool to see him holding his sword in the left hand! Judge-rating will follow.
