Hey guys! Long time no see!
Here is my First ever Biocup entry!

About this creation

Titles: Voltz, The Volt Knight, The Green ThunderBolt, Toa of Electricity
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Element: Electricity (Green)
Side Powers: None
Kanohi: None, Specialized Helmet.

Backstory: Raiko once lived on Spherus Magna with other Vo-Matoran. He was very special, being one of the only male Vo-Matoran to ever have been created, and having a thunder bolt of the color of green. After Teridax was destroyed, like most Vo-Matoran, Raiko fled Spherus Magna. He fled until he landed in Fieldus Magna, during one of the newer periods of the Makuta/Toa War. Raiko developed the name Voltz from native Matoran because of their witnessing of his power, but like lighting, would be gone in a flash. Raiko, even though being a Toa, has been known to work alone.
Here he is, Voltz! (Raiko)
He stands about 9.3 Inches!

Again, hiatus happened, but I am back for my first ever Bio Cup!
I hope the judges enjoy this MOC like I do.
Thanks for viewing my friends!:D
Cool, but a bit messy. The lower legs, mainly, could be better. Sticking bulkey pieces like Mata feet onto an existing limb piece is very hard to make look good. If you eliminated the black Inika leg altogether and make the Mata foot the structural component it would probably look great. Very cool character and colors, though!
Figure-wise, I really liked the build and details added, as well as the effect elements off the shoulders and the weapon design. While bold, the riot of colors threw me off a bit. Eliminating even one would have been a good simplification. Still like the Build itself,though. 7 points!
Nice. The colors and the electric theme go very well, and the build is fine, specially around the torso. Legs are indeed a problem, though. Those mata feet in there are too obtuse and make it blocky, something more streamline would've worked better here. Also, the tighs are too short for those, they should be about the same lenght of the lower legs, give or take. Overall, very good one, my score is 7.
Very colorful, vivid and original moc, I really like it! The only thing preventing you from getting more than an 8 are those legs, they really don't do justice to the rest of the moc... but overall this is very good, the shocky ornaments are great! Well done! Your socre: 8
The torso is quite intriguing, with the electric parts adding to an already streamlined creation. The arms and legs, although simple in design they are effective and the colours are consistently striking. I'm with the consensus on the use of the feet for shin armour. Not a big fan of them, for they are too large and bulky to continue the flow of the MOC. Currently amped (har har) about the increase of quality thus far, so here's an 8.
About time we saw some color. He looks quite "shocking" and nice. The colors are well balanced, he looks agile, but those mata feet on his legs are a bit too protruding. The lower legs may need some re-thinking, the black stands out a bit too much on the sides, but otherwise he is visual glory. Love that staff too. 8 points. PS. He'd be a nice IKEA mascot ;P
Bright, colorful, well themed. A great character. The chest armor fits incredibly well the general look, like it was meant to be aerodynamic, for sudden forward dashes. The only things that don't work much for me are the feet used as leg armor. They throw off his line a bit, and it looks like "I really want to stick something here... um, this will do". Still, it's a visually striking design overall. 8 points.
Green lightning for the win! I'm jealous of that Surge helmet, I don't even see those in stores where I live yet. Pretty good build, if basic, but then that's kind of what one needs for the first round.
