Rakas, Toa of Fear (BCBS - June)
About this creation
Once a matoran of sonics in Tren Krom Peninsula, Rakas was an adventurous personality. Whenever there was a chance to explore new areas, he'd take it. It was however unfortunate in the end.

Dispatched in a team to scout out an unknown entitie's plans in a valley turned dark and poisonous, the team's plans went horribly wrong. A new creature, somehow mutated, was a violent personality, and found the team before they found their target to spy on. After a brief battle, Rakas' team was gone and he was the only one left. His eyes slashed blind, he hardly knew he was cornered to a cliff by the creature and he fell down. Splashing into poisonous green river, he thought it was his end as he could not navigate in panic. Feeling the bottom of the river, trying to think of good memories, he felt a strange rock in the sand. Grabbing what actually was a toa stone, he transformed into a toa. However with the poisonous river interfering, his new form was deformed and brutal looking. Climbing up the river bed and washed to a shore, he balanced his breath. He could also hear the creature that attacked was in front of him. Without thinking of any plan, he began to shout. Louder than ever before, the creature was stunned by Rakas' fierce roar for a moment and fled when it got it's courage back. Rakas sat down to rest and wonder what happened.

A search team arrived to the valley later and found Rakas, still somehow recognizing their old comrade. After a brief explanation of his new ability to apparently cause paralyzing panic attacks with a shout, he was taken back to his village, where he was given a modified mask of sonar, which held a blindfold to cover his damaged eyes. Using the mask he could concentrate his naturally good hearing as a matoran of sonics and see his surroundings using echolocation. To aid sight, his arms were mounted with two tuning fork-like pieces. Hitting them together would cause a noise which would give him a nearly 360 degree sight over his surroundings. It was no problem for him as he grew immune to loud sounds through his mutation.

*ROAR*


Although blind, Rakas did not lose his adventure spirit, still going voluntarily to missions. His abilities to stun enemies with a shout made him known as the toa of fear. Besides shouting, he proved to be quite strong in his new body, preferring to use only his fists and legs in a fight. Only few evidences of his existence remain though, considering where he lived.

That's how we roll, Rakas says goodbye to ya folks.

Well then, this is one of my favorite toa creations to date. I tried to aim for a Pohatu mata kind of body, with wide hips and seemingly strong legs. I quite love the hip design, it's really flexible and allows various posings for the legs. I also love the 'hair' I gave him, it kind of boosts his intimidating appearance, making him look like a barbarian. Overall, a very enjoyable challenge for this month's BCBS contest.

I'm still lacking a new computer. I'm glad a friend of mine borrowed his, so I can post mocs and do other stuff. The system's lacking programs though, so my pictures were edited in an alternative program, instead of my preferred choice. I like the effect though, glad it turned out well. For the time being I'll have to hang on this computer, I might get a new one by the end of the month, but we'll see how long it takes.

Either way, I hope you enjoy this creation and leave some rates and comments, they're really appreciated =)

"I'm beast, so like, Rawr 'n stuff." -Rakas. At least, that's what I imagine him saying, that's pretty skilled for both story and build.

tuuubes.... nice one. i really like this. a lot. the hips especially, it's really a cut apart from the rest of the stereotypical broad-shouldered, torso-centered masculine builds we see. Once again, eally nice.

D'OH! Sorry m8. I meant the look was reminiscent of many of the good mechs of 'Armored Core'! :)Sorry about that. I am a terrible Typist, so I overuse Acronyms sometimes. Cheers!

Quoting Clever Crowe Absolutely LOVE that torso, those legs and arms designs! There a bit of A.C. to the far-forward and backswept points of balance and center-o-grav, too. Works to style very nicely. Cheers!
Would you mind explaining what do you mean by 'A.C'? Never heard of that term =p

Quoting Steve The Squid Well as a rahi, I'd say it's great, but the fact that you're calling it a toa just for the contest has me iffy. I cannot see any way to call it a toa. It's a fantastic build, I love it, but it's just not toa material.
Well, a mutated toa to be more exact, so you can pretty much compare this to a toa hordika.

Great work! I like the color sheme very much, and your designs are fascinating, like the head! It's also nice to see some more difficult parts used here, like the thornax-launcher parts! Good luck in the contest!

I don't usually comment on bionicle creations but this is an exceptions ! I know building with those blocks are far more harder than normal blocks so that is why i wanted to comment on this because i think you have done a really good job with this guy ! It's scary , it's monsterous , it's evil , . . . I love it ! Keep on the cool and scary work ! ;)

Quoting Lego METAL thats epic however The bottom legs could be better
I'm well aware of that, but I started to lack pieces for creating a good design and still keep a proper color. So I ended up with something simple.
