Bcbs Entry: Tiribomba; This One's For You, Callan!
Tiribomba, the self-moc of Callan, Lord of Fire! JK, we were teasing him because Tiribomba has the same red ruru as the most recent Callan. Time to take a joke to the next level!
About this creation
I do so love making a good revamp, so I chose Tiribomba as my matoran! Credit goes to Chronos for reminding us all of the dumbest named matoran ever, Marko Petrusic for taking the joke farther with Caleb, and of course, Callan, Lord of Fire, for putting up with this! Thanks guys! Piece Out!

Anyways, you've probably been wondering who Tiribomba is. There you go.

This is also for Marko's Riddle contest. If I weren't pressed for time by vacation, I would've made another matoran, but I'm lazy. So you just get one!

Yes, he fits the height limit, and not only that, but he has flexible limbs!



Finally on to the moc. Here is is.



I wish I had better ideas for the head, but this is all I got. :/



This picture makes the back turbine look a bit awkward, but it looks better IRL. Know me: I love elbow spikes, pauldrons, and back turbines!



Look, those legs are flexible! Not only are they awesome looking, but they are functional!! There's a how-to coming up as well!



See? Flexibility!


Now, begin How-To:



Make this. Duh.



Add a V-Piece, and push in the axle I'm pointing at.



Cut a tube to this length. (don't worry, it's purist! In the 8051 Motorbike, they have you cut a bionicle tube for the exhaust pipes! If lego does it, it's okay!)



Shove it in there. Put on an HF armor plate of size 4.



Stick on an HF armor plate of size 3, and add an axle with bushing lower.



Add another HF piece and you're done!



Now you have a matoran that can sit! (Unlike Deus ;)



Bye! Don't forget to vote for me in the BCBS, as last month I forgot to put my moc in the entry thread, and didn't get ANY points for the month! You guys rock!

Nice! Do you mind if I use the design on Androns matoran form?

I never realized you posted him until now, the revamp looks great. And don't worry about the Game of Riddles, I'm going to let it pass since it's Tiribomba XD

Love the look you gave him! Not so sure about the axle cutting thing but whatever! Great moc!

For the legs, if you don't want to cut tube, a rubber band wrapped twice around the part the socket goes around adds the necessary friction. Great, and obscure, Matoran!

It's very nice, but is it your entry to the Game of Riddles? If not I'm removing it from the group.

Very original looking, it's nice to see a matoran entry, that actually looks like an average matoran. Not an almost toa sized calamity...

When I saw the preview and read the title, I instantly thought "JoJo." I guess i was wrong...

Tiribombastic! :P By the way, search that word up on DeviantArt if you haven't seen it already.

It's great somebody revamped him, with the, like you said, dumbest name ever! It's tiribombastic how you made his new version very custom and still flexible, and even that 3-colors color sheme looks nice! Good luck in the BCBS!
