2012 Bio-Cup Round ONE: Toa Kabu (toa of momentum)
"Does this horn make me look funny?"
About this creation
HEY GUYS!! Well I made it to the first round! This is the farthest ive ever made it in a Moc Pages contest, which in this case is the 2012 Bio-Cup !!! My opponent for this round was the extremely talented Dylan Mievis!! My category was number 6, "Over-the-top Toa". My first Idea was to make a Toa with an insane amount of one certain piece, which I decided to make.. wait for it... TIRES!!! This creation has 19 tires in total.. ya I know.. Bot counting wheels... insane haha. TRY TO SPOT ALL 19 TIRES!!!! Also, read the Bio and enjoy!!


NAME: Kabu (Short for kabuto)

GENDER: Male

SPECIES: Po-Matoran

ALIGNMENT: Good

OCCUPATION: Pushing rocks and other objects…

TITLES: Freak, monster, loser,

ELEMENT: Momentum

MASK: The Mask of repulsion

WEAPONS: Protodermis machine cannon

STORY: Kabu was a thrill seeker. His favorite hobby was climbing inside old tires and rolling down hills. One day, Kabu was enjoying the hot day, when his tire fell into a puddle of protodermis, transforming Kabu into a toa! The horrible accident caused his body to combine with his tire, giving him an odd bug like appearance. His mask (which is attached to his head permanently) gave him the power of repulsion, allowing him to essentially force push anything in his way. Trained by turaga Valkorn, Kabu became a somewhat successful toa!








































BEYOND THE BUILD:
This guy was fun to build, though he cost me a few car mocs to make ha. I really enjoy how he looks, and hopefully you guys did to. I found a way to give him shoulders that do not have ball joint, but have all the same motion! I understand that most of you may not like him, but he works for me. I probably wont make it to the next round, but thanks for letting me get this far!! Make sure to check out my youtube and all my other mocs!

Toodaloo!

So, you could go over the top with anything you wanted, and you chose tires? Meh. My vote goes to your opponent.

I love this, I love the color scheme, the horn and especially the tires. Tires are my favorite piece to use.. ever. My self MOC has 14 and I wasn't even trying to be over the top. XD Nice work ^_^

Very cool, but as far as being "over the top" I'm fairly disappointed. I've seen "tired" Toas with way more than this on them. It was supposed to make us go "Ooooh!" I vote for your opponent.

Quoting FEN REK It's an ok moc but what I wanted to say was that this also has to be in the entry thread otherwise it won't be counted. Just so you don't miss out :)

That's a pretty awesome toa. I like the beetle like appearance, it's pretty cool. Custom torso is nice, as are the tires decorating his body.

Quoting Magith Films Any MOC that involves a kabuto beetle diserves a 5/5.
