Metru Nui Riot Control (BCBS August 2012)
I always wondered why Metru Nui never had no standard police. Making a legion of deadly, cruel machines seemed like a bad move. So, I made a Metru Nui Riot Control Matoran for this round, to add some... Matorananity(?) to Metru Nui's security.
About this creation
"TO SERVE AND PROTECT TURAGA DUME."

--Motto of the Metru Nui Police Department, (MNPD)



Riot control officers come equipped with a Kanoka disk launcher (usually either stun, teleport, or weaken disks). They use these to help disperse large, unwanted Matoran congregations.

The large amount of silver and grey is armor over his usual body. The Matoran is actually red and black.



The riot shield is made of lightweight protosteel, and can deflect everything from fruit or rocks to kanoka disks and zamor spheres. They are also used to push down overly-aggressive members in the crowd.



The Kanoka launcher, used to great effectiveness during demanding situations. Area of Effect (AOE) disks are often used to disperse a crowd faster. The launcher also has a laser sight to increase accuracy.



Back view, minus weapon. The arm the shield is on is more heavily armored, as it is pointed directly at the violent crowd.



Back view, with Kanoka disk launcher mounted.



Front view, no shield, no weapon.



Well it appears we have a... less demanding situation in which a Le-Matoran has evidently stolen a Po-Matoran merchant's goods. He also seems to have called in the Vahki.

(Vahki shows Toa size compared to Matoran. I build everything bigger, and my Matoran are often larger as I never really thought of them as being small, no matter what the comics and sets did. They're the average workers, so I figured they'd be of average size.



Well, it appears that the Le-Matoran has been convicted and is being taken back to the headquarters for internment.

MNPD Note: Riot control nor Vahki are meant for menial situations. Contact local authorities instead.

____________________________________________________________

Fourth wall: I built this when thinking about Metru Nui's dystopian state. I mean, the Vahki sound like something out of an Orwellian novel, and the Matoran are always kept working no matter what. I figured that militaristic riot control is kind of a staple of overreaching and totalitarian government, so I used that idea for this.

I'm really diggin the vahki here, does it have a page? I can't locate it. Anyway, the riot control matoran fellow could do without vahki hips for shoulders, they get in the way and look unnatural in my opinion. But sometimes to get the right size, you're forced to use them... Good job!

love both creations, my only complaint is that your vahki could have a hunched back or a longer neck like in the set or the movie, but over all grate MOC :D

Quoting JosephC 123 A little tall, but interesting concept. Good Luck.
Yeah, he is a little tall. Part of this is to make him fit in with the rest of my Matoran, which are rather tall comparatively, and also because the armor would add on some extra height as well.

Althougth the MOC and the idea are pretty good, I agree with Strakk. Also, he looks like a cross between Matoran and Toa, just the thing that the contest bosses don't want... If you're in, however, I'll wish you good luck!!
