Sorry for the relatively small amount of photos, but there really isn't a large variety of poses I can put a giant scorpion in.


Yellow background, because why not?


I was recently reminded about the dirge of non-humanoid MOCs that I have recently produced. Between that, and wanting to take a unique approach to the Bio Revamp Contest, I decided to take a chance at revamping this thing. People on flickr and MOCpages seemed pretty surprised that I attempted this, but I'm not sure why. Yeah, the original looks great at first glance- but look again and it's not all that great, to be honest (no offense to Cody Fuller, the original MOCist).



Oh, and this:

tailgundemo



Feedback on the MOC is appreciated.

Very, very cool! Really love the tail, it's always cool to see people use those cannon pieces well on a Bionicle. Anyway one of few good Rahi MOC's I've seen in a while, great work!

Quoting Johann Dakitsch Great MOC! Nicely buit and with a good design. Maybe it could be better if the legs had a more consistent look, but thats a detail really. I do like the head, though, and the rahkshi back armours flow nicely. In the end, really good job!
Thanks Johann. :D

Quoting MTG obsessor BOSS Did you just upgrade the version shown Bionicles Rahi Beasts?
Uh... sort of? I revamped one of the MOCs in that book, if that is what you meant, but I built my own version, instead of just building up on the previous one.

Quoting Callan Lord of Fire I mean that this was one of the few Rahi in the Rahi contest that didn't suck, so maybe fixing the many that did would prove more fruitful. Not to say it was unwise to revamp this, but I'm just sayin'. I saw plenty of entries that needed it WAY more. ;)
Oh. Yeah, I just feel like it's more of a challenge to improve something that's already good. The one exception to that which I've done was the Hordika Dragon. Anyway, I feel like making a bunch of revamps soon, so some of the other Rahi and DHs may be included.

Quoting Christopher Kanak Well, your Exo-Toa may be big, but none can compare to the AWESOMENESS of Vezon! (Yes, I'm entering him in round two and I've finished him.)
I haven't built it yet. Anyway, I'd advise against building a MOC for round two before round one is over... and be careful, Piraka are easy to do wrong. :P

Oh, and not to be pushy, but for some odd reason your review on Mael didn't get posted. (gee, lemme think about this for a sec -cough censor machine cough-) Mind resubmitting? No problem if you don't.

Quoting L.A. Miranda I find this surprising too, but I think it's in another sense: while this revamp is totally and completely different from the set, sharing in my opinion only too small details (and the fact that they're both scorpions), your version is inmediately asociated to the original concept: it's totally different, but the same. I don't know how to express myself better, sorry. =P
That's fine, I know what you mean. XD
Quoting L.A. Miranda The entire build is amazing as always, and I'm happy to see that you decided to try something different from your usual humanoid creations. The tail with the function is great, but I think that my favourite part is the head with the 'shoulders' area. Well, to sum up, very happy with this MOC. Wonderful, my dear.
Thanks LA, that's probably my favorite part too (aside from the tail).

Quoting Coconut Fanatic Dude, serious props. The Catapult Scorpion from the Rahi book! Everyone remembers the Tahtorak, but not the frost beetle or crystal climber or stone apes... or Catapult Scorpion. (We should do a contest in which we revamp Rahi from the book (:O) The beast is beastly, in the most possible way. The tail function is an awesome addition (and I doubt I could figure it out on my own). The head has a mean bulky look to it, and it looks like it has a little Visorak mouth. The various Rahkshi pieces are pretty well placed, and the arms are well built and filled in. The claws are a great combo between the staff of Takanuva's and the Roporak mandible. This is excellent work, and I am pretty much freaking out right now.
Thanks Terilis, glad you like it so much... and that's a great contest idea, methinks.

I also like the hidden function in the tail, and how it is done. if i do have one problem(and this is me nitpicking) The shield on the head is not the same :P Overall, great revamp of a fairly cool rahi
Thanks dude. I wasn't really a fan of the asymmetry of the original shield on the head, and I like the split and angled shape of the one that I did use. :)
