Maomao, the Iron Buhneh
This is my Entry Round entry for the Periodic Bionicle Contest 2012!
About this creation
The mystical Iron Buhneh. Does not give eggs or tastes like chocolate. A common Rahi found on the small temperate islands of Bl'Arghad'Phu. Herbivorous in nature they burrow and find various high-in-iron root vegetables. Due to their timid behaviour, people often take them in as pets.


*sniff sniff nibble nibble*


D'awww, kinda cute.


Curiosity piqued. Does Maomao see something of interest?


Oh hey there, Chlora!


CHLORA: D'aww, such a cute widdle buhneh... Can I keep him?
ME: No, this is just for this contest.
CHLORA: Aww, ok.


Not only that, he's also transformable and swooshable!


ME: Swoosh!
MAOMAO: I AM THE KILLER RABBIT OF CAERBANNOG! PEW PEW!

Creators Comments:

Took a moment to think up an animal for the contest. Came to me as I broke the ears off a chocolate bunny. So obvious :P
It was a relatively quick build, with the majority of the time hunting around for the parts, particularly various gunmetal parts which I ended up not using anyway lol
The build came to 59 parts. Not as elegant as some of the other entries I've seen, but does the job and I like it.

Contest can be found here.

Man, it's been so long since I built something. Had next to no time for the bulk of last year. I suspect I'll have even less time in the future.

I went for cute, because cute is the new cool.

Random trivia: Last year (being 2011) was actually the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Zodiac. The element for that year was Metal. Year of the Metal Rabbit. Funny that.

Comments and criticism welcome! ^_^

It's a cute demon bunny rabbit that can transform! And there is only one way to defeat it..... The Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioc!!!!! (instructions for the sake of it :P) First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be thy number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. XD Great moc!

Quoting Chronos Omega I must say, this would be extremely cute, except for the fact that anything with a Rahkshi head usually ends up looking vicious. :P I am also greatly reminded of Monty Python...
Well, he does have a viciously cute streak a mile wide. It's a killer!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant For me, the posability did it. Ear articulation, and the ability to move his wittle paws...
Yep, 16 points of articulation in the tiny creature.

Quoting Stephan Schumann Great! The edge between cute and respectfull. The head is awesome; You may find an iron plate for the body. Reminds me of an Bunny-Spy, in an book I once read. Well done, hope you get all points.
Yeah, I have some appropriate HF parts I can use, however the contest rules state less than 60 parts, so I'm maxed out lol
