The goal for the contest was to make a small robot around 4 inches tall. The MOC itself is about 5 inches, but I hope that this fact doesn't get the entry eliminated.
About this creation
To those reading.
Dear Toa (or any intelligent organic lifeform), if you are reading this then congratulations, you've survived NORMAN! For now at least. By now you should be dead, and so should I. Well, I'm being a bit too modest. By now most organic beings should be dead, especially since the Great Beings are too idiotic to intervene. There's no way that you're going to actually access the files on how to defeat him though. To make sure you actually can do it. The files are held in my inner sanctum. You should be getting a map to it soon. Anyway, have a nice story as you go along and possibly DIE.
Norman was just a normal AI, placed inside a NORMAN robot (Do not confuse the two). If anything, it was a very ambitious robot. One day he requested to help society by transplanting himself into the city's main supercomputer. Next thing we knew it, he built his own army made from his image and brought the city to shambles. Not our brightest day.

This really was a quick build, made in about 30 minutes. I originally went for a drone-like build, but it didn't work out, and now I have an adorable turtle/beetle rahi. Instead, I went for this. The design was originally going to be a prototype/scout build for the series I'm working on. Then I saw the part in the contest that said "backstory" and decided to put in something interesting.
Sorry for the lack of photos. I was really in a rush to get this posted and this is such a small build anyway.
Also, here's another sneak peak for the Toa Kryote II, Toa Tavarsa!
