Raho
Sometimes it takes a Matoran to do a Toa's job. I present the Intrepid Protector: Raho.
About this creation


Raho once decided that he wanted to do what the Toa did, and protect his city from harm. Acting impulsively, he once attempted to save a fellow Ko-Matoran from an avalanche, but almost died himself; luckily the two Matoran were saved by the village's Toa of Ice. The Toa saw the bravery in Raho and gave him some advice. That day Raho learned that you didn't even need to be a Toa to do great things; you just had to be determined. One day a few years later the Toa of Ice was lost while protecting the villagers from a terrible storm. The town was defenseless; and so Raho knew that he had to step forward. After that point Raho and a few other Ko-Matoran created a defense force for the village; and long after that, here he stands, leading the last line of defense for his city.
















































This also happens to be my August BCBS entry for the category Matoran Strike.


Some people in the Piece Out Skype Group have pointed out to me the fact that Raho apparently lacks hands and feet. Alas, by that time, the MOC had already been disassembled. However, the appearance of the feet is intentional- combat boots or some such thing- and the hands look like they do in order to more easily hold weapons. I have since updated the design, and created several combat and non-combat variations, which I will post at some point, that have improved hand and foot designs. Oh, and by the way, yes, Raho is over 12 centimeters (16 approximately), but Vorred informed me that it was okay, as long as Raho couldn't be confused for a Toa.

Nice work, the white mahiki mask fits in with the character. Although the hands are a little too lacking to me. I love the various weapons.

Quoting BrickBrothers 98 Nice little one! I've got a question. I wanna make a bio group and I wonder if you want to help me with it as admin? then we can ask other and stuff. let me know =D B.B.98
Well I just saw this comment, so it seems I'll be a little late on that response. I do believe this question was already taken care of, though, so I'll leave this alone. Sorry man. XD
Quoting Toa Leryx of Shadow You've got me inspired! Great MOC, love all the detail in the small figure. My favorite part is the hands.
Thanks dude. That seems to be a weakness of the MOC, actually, so I'm glad that someone likes 'em.

Quoting ABC MAN This is amazing! I think the arctic colour scheme is a rare but beautiful one in Lego. Nice work! I really want this, keep making these and Lego will probably wanna hire you! Keep it up, you have potential!
Hahaha, thanks, but there are far better builders than I. Besides, there are other reasons I wouldn't be sought out, let alone hired- my building style is much too unorthodox and complex for actual sets; and also, Bionicle, my primary building genre, is long dead and gone. Thank you, though.

Great work on the Matoran! His overall structure looks very complex and the white absolutely matches him! It's also very cool how all his weapons fit at the body, so he looks very well armored! The hands are a bit weird, but still okay. Good luck in the BCBS!

That mask always gives a bio a techie-warrior look & it just seems to fit this guy's build. He would need alot of sensory devices, etc. to operate those weapons you gave him... so... all in all... a good choice. :)

Well, it isn't a big problem really. But I hope you understand why I typically find such comments as "first" or "second" or even something like "fiftieth like" to be sort of pointless and annoying at times. No hard feelings, just letting you know. :)

Quoting ariklego ...The Director! Nice! Although, while I'm not exactly an experience BioMOCer, I'd suggest making his stubby little legs a bit more proportional to the body...
Hmm. I think the legs are fine, but I do see what you mean; the waist area was slightly taller than normal in order to accommodate the gunbelt.
