Gandalf the White,Toa of Fluorine!... PBC2012-Rd2
Shining like the brilliance of a Big White Toothy Smile or a Cool Extreme He Star, the transformed Gandalf radiates renewed strength, vitality, and light
About this creation
He is my contribution to Devon P vs. StoveTop Creator in Round Two of the
PeriodicBionicleContest2012.

Important Background Information:
Bionicle Gandalf the White radiates both power from the strengthened bone density of his biological nature, and power from the infinite lubrication and anti-sticking qualities of his mechanical nature all due to Fluorine! The negative ion of fluorine, the fluoride ion, is capable of bonding to many metals producing halide salts, the most valued being the sodium and stannous fluorides. When consumed in small quantities the fluoride ion from these salts can strengthen bone and teeth by combining with the bone apatite crystal lattice. Additionally, the element Fluorine can undergo reactions to form poly fluoro molecular chains, valued for their lubricating and anti-sticking properties.
AND IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH… Fluorine spectral lines HAVE been detected as light emissions from Cool Extreme Helium Stars. This fact alone, perhaps, ending forever the controversy that the Istari are Maiar or Angelic Star Beings. (Gandalf is of the Istari or Wizard Clan.) This is why Gandalf’s brain radiates the color of Fluorine Gas and why he wears the Mask of Light! So, in a mythological, alchemical, chemical, mechanical, AND cosmological sense, my Bionicle Gandalf the White is truly
TOA OF FLUORINE!

Calling ShadowFax…
Facing away from us, the Fluorine color of Gandolf’s brain can be better appreciated!
Face-on this color can only be seen through the eye openings of his mask.


“Darkness took me. And I strayed out of thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and everyday was as long as a life-age of the earth. But it was not the end. I felt light in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.”
~ Gandalf the White, The Two Towers, Movie

“Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.”
~ Gandalf the White, The Return of the King, Book

“I hope that by participating in this contest everyone gains a greater love and respect for the science of chemistry or perhaps has a little spark of interest ignited! Cheers and much thanks to Toa Phosphorus!”
~ StoveTop

Quoting Predrag Hrubik That is one masterpirece brick build figure! Creative use of parts! Outstanding!
Thanks, I have to admit he is one of my favorites! I like him better than my Gandalf the Grey, even though they are very close in design?! :)

Thanx so very much! That beard arrangement is the best I have been able to come up with so far... but I'd really like a better one! That was my first try at photographing/posing outdoors! :)

Quoting Devon P so far you have this, Im not even close to finishing a moc and the due date has, I think, past
So sorry you didn't have the time. I know it's getting near the end of school for all you high schoolers, some of you probably have finals and projects due! Aren't you a member of the BCBS? Hopefully, you can put your creative energies in that direction! Good Luck! :)

Yes, I'm rather pleased with the natural setting/lighting results... glad you like them too! I am definitely going to try it again! I have had an image of Rio in my head all day today too! Cheers! :)

Quoting Cody G He looks great, and a lot of thought was put into him! Now, if there is a "Titan of Carbon" category, you simply MUST build a Balrog. I'm rootin' for you! :)
You and David... Guess I'll have to definitely keep Balrog in my mind! Thanx for your support! :)

Quoting El Barto ! Wow! Looks great outside in a natural setting, too. Nice work on this!
Thanks... ya know... it was your several episodes of outside shots that made me do this! I also thought the rock would show off the white the best! Thank you for your ideas and your comment! :)

Quoting Lego Obsessionist Gotta love Gandolf. Some of the armor is a bit too round, like the thighs and elbows, but great job overall. Wonderful take on the theme.
Yup... those thigh rounds were my bad attempt to simulate a long robe. I thought about using technic panels, but then I would have lost the flexibility! That is something I'm going to have to experiment with! Thanx! :)

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Cool! I don't usually like Bionicles, the majority of the time they look awkward and samey. Yours Bio MOCs have a certain charm to them, I think Gandalf the white looks a bit camp with his legs crossed in one of those photos lol. Nice Bio build and best of luck!
I know... but I wanted to show how balanced he was! Thanx for your comment, I'm lovin' your birds! :)

Quoting Dave Benson Weird in an interesting way! To me it feels and looks more like Sauron the White, despite no character like that exists :) Strange!
I'll have to admit I'm not sure where this idea all came from? It was proabably due to my dental chemistry/materials background? Now you make sure you are using your fluoride rinse! Hee, hee! Many thanx! :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith I want a similar handling of the Balrog now. You took me back 25 years here to that time in my life when I still went to chemistry classes and was reading the Lord of the Rings.
I'll have to keep Balrog in mind! Hope they were pleasant memories! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . A wonderfully clean build. He really does radiate light. The return of gandalf is one of my favourite parts in the book. Is that shadowfix on the background? Good luck Stovey :)
Thank you so much. I just thought that all that white would stand out better against the rock. Yes, it's my 'horse in a jar' standing in for Shadowfax! :)
