Gorast, The Disruptive (Bio-Cup 2012 Eliminatories)
About this creation
This is my entry for the Bio Cup 2012 eliminatory round, with the theme of a revamp of an official bionicle character, who either has an official set or an image reference.

It didn't take long for me to pick my set for revamping. I chose Gorast quite immediately while reading the round theme. Although aside I considered also making a piraka, but... you know, humanoids aren't my thing.

For Gorast, I made her an improved insectoid look, by adding additional wings and giving her a stinger, which is actually her Nynrah blaster. Below is an image of the original set and her biography can be read here.

And here she is! Quite an improvement for the original set, eh?

While building this I concentrated more on the body design. I wasn't really capable of doing much for the arms, for I tried to keep her feminine appearance.

Along the creation I also used some new parts I hadn't utilized yet, for example the part her lower arms are attached to.

Her stinger can be fold to the back, but isn't really as insectoid as it should in this stance. For human proportions it works well though, I was surprised my self how well it tucked back there.

Her stinger more officially is on the front. This was a tad Beedrill-ish inspiration from pokemon. It was a fun idea though to make the Nynrah blaster a stinger.

This stance is pretty much an attack mode of a kind. Just imagine Beedrill and you'll get it.



Flying. For the next 3 pictures I had to leave out some of the image edits, so the wings could actually be seen. Too bad they disappear due to their transparency while editing.

Flying stance from the back.

Flying attack mode. Death from above as they say, that stinger is quite a nasty weapon.

Well, I actually made it. Bio Cup is something I really don't wanna miss, although my computer's broken. In the end I decided to use my mom's laptop, although I don't trust it much. It's so slow that I expect it to break down any moment now, but still am surprised that it still keeps going.

My summer holiday is starting very soon, only this week left. Last exam tomorrow, field trip on thursday, etc. I'll be having a lot of free time, but too bad some of my plans crashed along my computer. I was quite motivated to start writing a story about the Elemental Universe on deviantart and play some minecraft. Oh well, I can build more now. I'm somewhat planning to create a biography of Monarth's species, draken. Might take a while to build a representative of each element though. Oh well, I guess they'll be lighter designs.

Anyway, I hope you like this creation and leave some comments and rates below. To be honest, I sometimes feel a little underrated here as I don't too often surpass 20 likers, but oh well, I'll keep on mocing.

Now if you excuse me, I have a history exam tomorrow. Time to open the book...

No one is gonna say it? *sigh, and deep inhale* PHALLIC CANNON~! Now that I got that outta the way, I like this revamp, it's just one thing I think would have worked better for the overall look. Insect abdomens normally have a curve to them, and often when not in use sit at a 45 degree angle. I think with a few extra parts back there, you could pull off tha angled look with the launcher, and enhance that female insect look much better than how you posed her before. Otherwise, it probably would have worked better to give her a smaller stinger and use the blaster as a rifle like weapon....

I am surprised you chose Gorast to revamp. I does look impressive but the original was already very good to begin with. 7/10

Quoting Yuri Fassio When I saw that stinger tail I thought "how is it supposed to... unless... no, he CAN'T have the ba- I mean, the nerve, to actually do that" And then I was laughing my axe off "OH NO HE DIDN'T!" Now, I know this wound't call for more than an 8, technically, but what the hell, am I a judge or not? Heck, here, get a 10/10. For the sheer guts to post this thing.
I laughed at this comment xD Thanks for cheering my morning.

Very good work on this one. Nice build and the colors kinda work. I just can't get over that shooter, though, specially in that position... But thats just me. 8/10

While yours is an awesome concept re-Design, I loathed her as an Original. That HEAD, with absolutely nothing done to rebalance the size among the limb proportions - Ugg. I reaped her for parts IMMEDIATELY. Wish the original had looked this nice. Cheers, Monarth!

Quoting The Essence Of Randomness . Great! Although I have 2 complaints; 1. She doesn't look female enough, and 2. In the picture before the flying ones, she's a woman. Did you really think about where the blaster was going?
1. Her appearance is quite challenging to be a female and an insect at the same time. 2. I am well aware how bad it looks. But try to see it as a stinger. Ain't my fault if people have such twisted minds xD Oh how wrong this generation is :'D

Shes a she? Well that blaster sure seems to disagree. Lol, anyway it is a fantastic moc

I'm surprised how few people (one) have commented on the stingers position. It's hilarious! *Insert ten-minute-long giggle fit*

Quoting FEN REK Great entrant, good luck but I have to say that that stingers' position is humourous :)
I was expecting comments pointing that out ^_^' It is kind of funny, but also fits the insectness of Gorast. Let people see it the way they want xD
