Thastanus
A single rolling thunder strike / the lightning shatters silent night / something to find, nothing to lose / a hero come to sunder fright / but unbeknownst to twisted mind / an illusion of what is right / destroying what he once held dear / this hero will himself be blight.
About this creation



A former hero returned, believing himself to be the only hope against evil... but in actuality, he has long ago surpassed that evil. Unknowingly fallen, perhaps; in the effort to complete his previous goal he has counteracted it.




































No real backstory for this guy... but he's bad. He wasn't always, and he still thinks he isn't, though he's going on some kind of righteous killing spree shooting beams of light or something. Odd coincidence, but kind of like Zeus from the excellent stopmotion series A Better World.

A lot of the parts of this build are from Brickfair NE, which, if you somehow haven't seen anything about it, was excellent. Take a look at my flickr for some stuff on that.

Not sure why some of the images came out all yellowish. It's not too big of a deal though, plus he's been scrapped already, so whatever.

Uploader is finally back up (yaaay) but it's still not completely working... that's why the images here are smaller than normal. In order to upload I had to run Java via IE9 (in absence of Firefox or working Safari - long story) with IE9 being through a Windows virtual machine emulator thing... and because that program essentially creates a separate mini OS within my laptop, it doesn't save files, so I had to email myself all the pictures, download them, then manually convert each one to a JPEG. Yep. And all because Chrome can't run Java.

Many more MOCs on the way soon! Getting towards the end of school, so testing may slow me down in early June, but after that it's smooth sailing through the summer.

Quoting Millsy (Jakob) I have to say this one is excellent. you used two colors that many people don't use often. The Vahi in the gut area flows very nicely. The staff is simple yet smooth, and I think it works very well on this MOC. Really, the only thing I have miffs about is the fact that I see very little trans blue in the legs (I could spot a bit in the back, but I feel it needs more). That's just my opinion though. If you like you should keep it (had you not scrapped it already XD). Anyways, again, great job!
Thanks for the feedback, Jakob. It's a bit of an underused combo, yes. There's little trans blue in the legs because the trans blue was used only for the sockets (the only exception being the Bohrok eye on the spear) and there weren't many sockets in the legs. You're right, though. XD

Quoting Rennoc ~ Dat Colour ;3 You should update him with the new translucent HF pieces!
Nah, the trans light blue was just for the sockets of the skeleton, and the blue and gold were the external armor colors.

Quoting Callan Lord of Fire Hey look, it's Cossy! :P NAH I KID, I KID! This is nice. Great color scheme, great build, great mask. But I'd be lying if I said Ben hasn't stereotyped that mask. :/
LOL, thanks, Caleb. I guess he did to some extent. Has Ben gotten spammed or something? How did Zethlin get to about 200 likes?

Quoting Flaredrick Forgotten So this is what your new av looks like on BZPower. Very nice with the chest plating. The colors are very cool, and almost give him and electrical feel to him.
Thanks Ricardo... yeah, electric perhaps, though I had light in mind, like his very body is glowing with power or something.

Quoting Petersheikah [ITA] Really awesome! I love the combination Blue-Gold, cool also the body, it reminds me... a Transformer? It would have been better with a cape, i think. Anyway, amazing MOC.
Thanks Peter. I don't know, I think of this guy as a practical and effective warrior, but I think a cape would get in the way of his murder spree... :P

Quoting Darren .Y I love Thast-anus!? :P That's what the name sounds like when I read it. Very cool colours and an awesome solid build. I think a cooler spear might've made the moc better but other than that it looks fabulous. Those shoulder armour pads work really well and I'm curious as to how you attached like that? Great work as usual Ben. :)
Thaz-tahn-uss, not thast-anus... anyway, the shoulders weren't connected in any strange way. I just put them on the hockey chest and I thought, this looks cool, and then built up Technic so that it was actually attached properly. :P

Awesome moc, as always! Just finished watching A Better World, and I'm glad I did!Funny choice of mask considering he is like Zeus in his motives.

That would work my suggestion was just for something heavier, yeah too bad you scrapped him. :)

Quoting legendary green fya Awesome moc, Ben. My school year just so happens to have ended one hour ago. Great use of that vahi, and that spear isn't the best weapon you could've made for him. (Perhaps a broadsword or axe...)
Cool. The problem here was that my only two choices (within the color scheme) were a spear or a knife / shortsword thing, since there are no large gold blades and no blue blades (at least not ones that I have)... actually if he was still built I'd try making a warhammer out of Gahlok torsos. :P

Quoting Mohamed Marei So cool! Wished you'd do something about the head tho. And the weapon is a bit too.....bland...I guess. Also, I would like to borrow him as a character in a project I have in mind. Does that sound cool? Thanks Moe
I agree about the spear, and I've already addressed the head, LOL. If you want to use him, that's fine with me. Thanks Moe. :)

Quoting Toa Phosphorus You've been invited to Judge the Elemental Bionicle Contest 2013! Please respond asap so we can find another judge if you are unable. Also this moc is looking pretty sick. The gold and blue really go well.

Quoting Gale Winthrope Have to agree with Cody, Cossy was the first thing to pop into mind, but I do really love how this guy looks. The use of the hockey armor over the nuva armor is definitely my favorite detail. Great work here :)
Cossy again!? Aaaaargh. Whatever. Thanks Gale, LOL. :P

Quoting Clever Crowe I truly LOVE the angles created by the two armor fits you used to emulate the figure's trapezius 'muscle' (the muscle Spock pinches when he Vulcan Nerve Pinch'es us), the end result being this massively strong set in the shoulders, all the way from the bottom of the pecs to the base of the neck. Such a nice bit of proportion work. Not to detract from quality work and closure elsewhere, just wanted to spotlight that area a bit. GREAT work, Chro. =)
That was a very in-depth assessment of the armor sculpting... thanks Crowe. :P

Sometimes I extrapolate from others' techniques, and then it tends to eventually evolve into my own build style.

Quoting Max W. Hey you. You. yes, you. Do yourself a favor. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/aurora/ nice MOC.
Can't use Firefox on my computer. I had it before, but it didn't work, and I was unable to figure out the problem. Basically, it registered as not running, and when I tried to close it it always said it was already off... I tried to update it, but it said I had to reboot Firefox, which was impossible since it was apparently offline and online at the same time... it was madness, Max, LOL. Thanks though.

Quoting Cody G The mask still just screams Cossy, but I really like it! More people should use that piece in non-Cossy builds to break the unavoidable connection.
That's what really annoys me. People see a Surge helmet (even on the official set!) and go "oh look, Cossy". I don't like that. Not mad at Ben Cossy himself, but... aaaagh.
