Hey Guess who's not dead?
First off let me apologize for being away for so long. School, exams, personally issues, school musical and life in general got in the way, but everything's cool now :)
Anyway enjoy the new Cossy!
About this creation
Species: Makuta's Creation
Title(s): Cossy, Toa, Brother, Makuta, Blue Warrior, Traitor, Lord of Blue Flames
Mask: Mask of Super-Sonic Flight
Weapon(s): Dual Ornate Battle Blades, Electric Heavy-sword (Nicknamed: Bruiser), Long-Sword (Nicknamed: Barardo), Staff of Blue Flames
In the days before Teridax’s Departure to Bara Magna, Teridax planned out his every move to ensure he would rule the universe, forever. In doing so Teridax decided it would be best for his Rahkshi armies to have captains that would lead the assaults in large groups. With a whirl of black hollow shadow, Teridax created a Rahkshi like no other. Green in colour, spikes far larger than normal and a staff that looked like it had been created by Gods, his captain was born.
Teridax thought it be best to test the Rahkshi, so he forced two captured Toa to fight it, tricking them into thinking that freedom would be granted if they killed it. With a clash of blades the fight began, however it was not long before the Toa triumphed over the Rahkshi. Teridax was furious, with yet another mystical blast of shadow Teridax created yet another Rahkshi, this one would be better than this last (Rahksanne).
She had so much more power than any Rahkshi before her. Teridax was proud of his new creation, but needed to test it. Again the Rahkshi took the test. The fight was over quickly for the first Toa, he was no match for Rahksanne’s Shadow powers. However the second Toa was far more powerful and the two warriors put up quiet a fight! In the end it was the Toa who succeeded. With his blade at her throat she surrendered.
Teridax’s rage now grew even stronger. He was the most powerful being in the Universe and yet all he had created so far were weaklings. After ordering two Rahkshi guards to send her away to be imprisoned with the other Toa, Teridax tried a brand new a approach. The warrior he crafted was not a Rahkshi, he was near Toa! He had blue armour, flames coursing through his body and had a mask power. Teridax’s aim was to create a being that would fool all the Glatorian into thinking he was an ally, but in reality, their worst nightmare!
The blue warrior stood there, beams of shadow revolving around his body. Teridax ordered the guards to bring out more Toa. He was confident that he’s new Toy was perfect. Four Toa stood before the Blue warrior, each one ready for a battle, in the hopes Teridax would indeed grant them their freedom. The battle begun!
The first Toa ran at Makuta’s creation slashing his blade at his waist. The warrior simply dodged the attack, grabbed the Toa’s sword and sent it through his heart. The next Toa attempted to use his mask power, but before he could even breathe, the blue warrior had killed him. A smile came across Makuta’s face. The blue warrior ran up toward the final two, gripping both of them by their throats. The Toa thrashed about in the blue warriors hands, but sadly nothing could stop the inevitable.
Their lifeless bodies dropped to the floor and the blue warrior stood there, the expression on his face was lifeless. Makuta had succeeded. Makuta was extremely pleased with his new Toy. He ordered it to go out and train with a group of Rahkshi so that he would be ready for the upcoming battle on Bara Magna. The blue warrior walked away from the battlefield with two Rahkshi following him.
The Blue Warrior and the escorts walked the land Teridax had created. It was dark and evil, The way Teridax liked it. The blue warrior looked around; he saw thousands of Matoran being enslaved, for every Matoran slave there were two more Rahkshi, each one beating the Matoran if they so much as breathed without being told to.
The Matoran were all building something, a mega structure so large, that the Makuta Robot Body would look tiny in it. What they were making was a palace fit for a king that Teridax would rule in when he has control of the Universe.
The Blue warrior continued to walk on, when something caught his eye. He looked over at two Matoran who were attempting to flee. The foolish Matoran were quickly followed by a hoard of Rahkshi, but before they could run after them, the blue warrior spoke. What he said was spoken in the language of the Rahkshi, translated it was, “leave him”.
The Rahkshi obeyed the order and continued to enslave the workers. By now the Matoran were free, it would be impossible for anything to catch them! In a flash the blue warrior appeared in front of the Matoran, his mask glowing! The Matoran were relieved, they were certain a Toa had appeared before them, but they were wrong. The Blue warrior grabbed the first Matoran by his throat and pressed tight, his friend crying out praying that his words would stop the Blue Warriors actions.
The Matoran’s lifeless body feel to the floor, and his friend cried by his side, The Blue warrior stared at the blue and white Matoran, ready to kill. The Matoran was terrified, he knew nothing would save him. He stared back into the hollow black eyes of the Blue warrior, pleading he not kill him. The Matoran’s tears and shaking body were the only thing stopped the Blue Warrior from killing him, he just stood there.
A group of Rahkshi came close to the Blue Warrior, realising he wasn’t going to kill the Matoran; they figured there orders were to kill it themselves. As a Rahkshi bent down to pick up the Matoran, The Blue warrior’s hand lashed out at the Rahkshi and he grabbed his wrist. “Leave him alone” The Blue warrior whispered hesitantly.
The other Rahkshi moved forward to grab the Matoran, The Blue warriors black hollow eyes grew lighter until they became yellow like the sun. The Blue Warrior roared like a lion “LEAVE HIM ALONE” blasting fire around him in every direction, burning every Rahkshi close by into ashes. The Blue warrior extended his arm out to the Matoran and whispered calmly “Come with me”
The Blue Warrior and the Matoran hide far away in the mountains of Le-Koro. The Blue warrior took this time to bond with the Matoran, whose name was Ignam. After much discussion between Ignam and the Blue warrior, they deduced that due to Teridax creating him in the imagine of a Toa, some qualities of a Toa were still inside him, and seeing Ignam in such a state brought out these qualities, releasing him from his Makuta self.
The Blue Warrior, being appointed the name Cossy by the Ignam, knew that he was the only thing left on Aqua Magna that could stop Makuta. He would leave in the morning to rescue the imprisoned Toa and stop Makuta.
Cossy parted ways with Ignam, knowing he would be safe and that they would meet again. He travelled the black landscape, hiding in the shadows like a Makuta so the Rahkshi would not see him, he hated acting like a Makuta. Cossy reached the location he was born, the rocky battlefield was now empty and the Makuta robot towering over it, asleep.
Cossy proceeded down a rocky staircase which lead to the prison chambers. In there were two jail cells, each containing two warriors. The Rahkshi guarding the Toa were asleep so it was easy for Cossy to speak with the Toa here.
Cossy walked up to the first Cell and greeted the two Toa inside. The Toa didn’t respect Cossy, after all he was the reason there brothers were dead. Cossy tried his best to tell them he was no longer a Makuta, and that he only wished to bring a stop to Teridax, but the Toa didn’t believe anything he said. From the cell on the opposite side of the room a peaceful voice called out to Cossy.
Inside the cell an old and wise look Toa stood staring at Cossy, below him a Rahkshi sat mediating. She was Rahksanne, the Rahkshi that was captured before Cossy killed the three Toa. She did not speak but the other warrior did. He said his name was Lakuva, and that with his mask he was able to read the thoughts of any being.
Lakuva’s mask lit up and Cossy could feel his mind being read. The masks bright light stopped glowing and Lakuva spoke, “He’s no Makuta, not anymore, he only wishes for peace.” Though the one of the Toa was still unsure of Cossy they all believed him now. Cossy grabbed the keys and opened both cells, the Toa introducing themselves.
The Toa decided it was best to set up a camp before they began any other plans, so they began to exit the dungeon, As they were leaving the, the guards awoke. They were puzzled as to why Cossy’s was helping the Toa, but they knew he was a traitor.
As the first Rahkshi readied himself for a fight, the others let out a battle cry and begin to attack. Before either side could strike, a hoard of Rahkshi appeared behind the Toa, leaving them severally outnumbered.
The three Toa and Rahksann were taken to the Stadium in shackles. Before them stood the towering giant that was Teridax. He was furious. He could not believe that every creation he had made failed him. In his rage he slammed his fist down onto one of the Toa.
Makuta was in no mood to talk, for he was ready to defeat Mata Nui. He ordered the guards surrounding the Toa to bring them inside his large robotic body. Makuta hoped that they would be the first to die if his Robotic body was injured by Mata Nui. Once the Toa were inside Cossy and the others slept, not knowing what else to do.
Cossy awoke to Rahksanne tapping his shoulder, when Cossy opened his eyes he saw that everything around them was... paradise. Cossy had slept through Teridax and Mata Nui’s final battle and awoke to his new home, Spherus Magna.
Fourth Wall Commentary:
So the new Cossy is finally up
Hope you all like him, I'm very happy with how he turned out
My aim with this revamp was to actually make it look decent (unlike before) hopefully I succeed with that, I guess you'll be the judges on that :P I also decided to take out the silver he used to have, I feel it aided in making him look less cluttered. I'm also very pleased with how the wings turned out, they are a little fragile, but I'm happy with the aesthetic change they give :)
Also I personally feel now I have a new MOCing style, so do expect very different MOC's from me from now on.
On the subject of MOC's I've got Rahksanne (one of the characters mentioned in Cossy's bio above) built and will post her soon
However my next post will be a system MOC, and on that note I wish to post a lot more system then I used to.
So yes, I'm back and will be as active as I can :)
It is my final year of school however so there may be some times I'm not too active, but never will I have a whole year away again.
Also Cossy's new Sword (The one in the main picture, was given to me my Shadowgear6335, so he made it, credit to him)
.....So I saw this some time back and totally forgot to add a comment :P I really love the look of this guy. The smooth style is always a step up from regular techniques, and I'm very happy to see it on such a legendary Self-MOC. The color layering is also excellent, although I feel there could be a bit more blue on the lower legs and feet. On the topic of color spacing, I really like the wings being solid black. It makes it look like a "V" shape wrapping around his torso like a harness or something and it looks SICKKK. And the use of that Atakus helmet is genius, by the way. Speaking of parts usage, I do have something to say about the Surge helmet, or as it is better known on MOCpages apparently, the "Cossy Mask" :P On the left side of it, there's a little microphone. Now I don't normally recommend parts modification, but if you were able, I think it would look absolutely incredible to turn that into some sort of scar. It would fit with Cossy's story, too, to be honest. My last comment is that I would personally change the armor on the back of the lower legs to something smoother to fit in more with the rest of the MOC. I do have to note, however, that seeing this, along with a few of Shadowgear's MOCs, caused me to switch my style from a regular build to a smooth style. Thus, some of my newer MOCs, including the most recent (unposted) version of my Self-MOC, Ekorak, are directly inspired by you, and I'd love for you to see the effect you had on my style. Anyway, this comment has dragged on long enough and I don't want to waste too much of your time ;) Thanks for reading.
Awresome MOC Cossy, normally I wouldn't use Hero Factory parts, b/c I don't have those kinds of parts and I'm a Bionicle purist like that. But you pulled it off well. I love the use of the Rahkshi heads as the shoulder armor, especially in consideration with his backstory; Which is great btw. The fact that he was an evil creation made into to the image of a Toa, and as a result adpoted a Toa's mind and honorable nature is brilliant. The torso is one of the best I've seen. The legs (thighs and lower legs) have good proportions to them, and the blue flames on the wings add a dynamic look that makes it look like the character is moving.
The use of blue is awesome looking and the sword looks amazing.
That's all I got to say. Great work Cossy, I look forward to more of your work.
Excellent! It looks so hella awesome! It even looks better than callan's version of cossy ( you ). It looks better than callanlof itself ( sometimes callan(moc) can be so boring to look at ) complexity is 10/10.
Oh gawd the parallelness makes me wana cry... See... my self moc is a Makuta... he was an artificial creation made to become the ultimate experiment. A creature that could not become ill, age, or be poisoned. But, Nazo was born with a pure heart, and rebelled... now, this didn't happen in the main bionicle universe. And in my universe, blue flames are referred to as the element 'Plasma', which is partially liquid/gas state, and ALOT hotter than fire. ironic?
Great moc, I love the colors. I also think it has a nice use of rahkshi heads. The sword is also awesome because European swords are a pain to make.
only con is that i would make the legs and arms slightly longer because the body looks a tad big for them. But it would be easier to make the limbs longer so i'd do that rather than mess with the body.
OK so let me come back to MOCpages for ONE SECOND to comment on how awesome this revamp is. My God, I really never thought Cossy would ever come back, then I come here to see what has changed throughout MOCpages, and I see this moc, This beautiful, God-created Moc, and it's Cossy himself! Just look at that chest, Hero Factory to it's full use! Rakshi shoulders are back, and MY GOD the wings (how did you get those peices?). It's a really awesome moc man! Keep up the good work! :D oh, and glad you're back!
Just as good as alway. The upper torso and the arms look good. but I think the legs are just too bulky and it's waist looks... off compared to the rest of it. aside from that, you've got something really great. 4/5
OH. MY. GAAAAAWD!
Cossy really deserves his title of "Lord" now! With all due respect, I think V1 and V2 aren't a good showcase of your MOCing skill.
But this... I dunno what impresses me more, the flames-wings (Hi Bricklink) or the smooth building style...
Dats de reel Cozzy!11!
Well they would come to Spirit and Carrion's New weapon shop (new because they had one as matoran) and tell them about a lab run by Spirit's old foe... the makuta Dagon. He is experimenting on a new kind of weapon and killing toa. Spirit ,who Dagon betrayed when they were dark-hunters, will go to get his revenge and Carrion, Cossy, and Rahksanne tag along to help him free the prisoners and get them back to their friends. Or something like that.
Hey Ben I have a question. Would it be OK if I had Cossy and Rahksanne in my story? I won't make it conflict with yours and I was going to try building them anyway. So I thought why not have Spirit and the gang meet them. I want your go ahead first before that though so is it alright with you?
Hey Ben, I mustache you a question: (and I'm not shaving it for later) Do you mind if my main viIIain (this guy: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/363254) uses Muse's Uprising as a themetrack? I noticed it was Cossy's theme on Cody G's version of him, so I'm checking in with you to make sure. OH, that reminds me: I want to build Cossy, but is it alright if I give him a Berix helmet and a bit more medium blue? I'm fresh out of Surge helmets, for obvious reasons :P
Wow! Never thought I'd see such a huge revamp of Cossy, I have to say. I much prefer the skinny look of this one to last; fantastic work my friend! Also very nice to see you back, you came back in style! :D
Well Ben, I must say, it's great to see you back on the Pages! I do like the new Cossy, though I feel like the legs are perhaps slightly too blocky. Other than that, you have some brilliant parts usage and the wings are just mind blowing!
Man, it's been a while since I was around MOCpages, isn't it? Anyway, I thought "Hey, I should check some of my favourite builders out again, seeing who's still active here..." and then I saw your new Cossy and my love, this guy is awesome! I love the new wings, and I really feel like I should revamp my Cossy which I built so many years ago. Anyway, great work here, keep it up. ~_^
Thanks all Cheers Adam, great to see ya! Great to see you Everox! Yeah I agree with you on the arms, not too sure what I'd do to change them though, might toy around with them. I got Shadowgear to thank for that staff and sword :)
Here comes all the classic MOCers back! Welcome back Cossy! I'm loving him! Very nice body, legs, and so on. The arms look a bit weird proportion-wise, but nicely built. The weapons are beautiful! Hope to see more of your MOCs! :D
Nice to see you're still building! Also I'm glad the torso finally worked, I know you had a bit of trouble with it early in design. Also awesome looking weapons and wings. Dang everyone has a new version of their self-MOC now. I need to get building.
ITS LIKE BIONICLE JESUS!
anyway, I loved how you used the rahkshi head on the torso, something ive tried to do many times, but not exactly gotten what I wanted out of it. I'm glad to see someone perfecting it, and contests on Mr.gold!
Glad to see you back Ben ! :D I'm sorry for a bit taking long to actually comment on this :( Those wings are pretty clever, and I like the shape the Atakus Helmets give to the wings. The whole moc in general looks "clean and smooth, which shows you've taken the time to get him right. The colors and build (designs) are done well ! Cossy looks really good :D I'm not sure what more to say when everything has been said ! Good to have you back, and I'm looking forward to your next mocs :D
I suppose if even Ben comes back from the dead I need to get back in gear. *sigh* oh well. I get that life gets in the way though, seems to be sapping all my time as of late as well. Beautiful MOC here. Love the use of the technic V pieces all over, (one can never have enough of those) and the Rahkshi heads on the shoulders; looks really sleek and smooth. Love those wings too, interesting idea using those blue fire pieces. Great work Ben, looking forward to some new MOCs from you too, you've been gone longer than I've been here XD
Nicely done. He looks leaner, cleaner and much more dynamic. I'd gotten used to your style being so... cluttered. I'm glad you're getting past that stage. At first, I thought the wings were an added special effect of some kind, but they're real! And very well done. Cossy look much more like his storyline makes him out to be. I certainly hope to see more like this from you!
HAHA that's cool Garrett, I do plan on using the Brain Attack Surge mask for a version of Cossy, just a random form, not an update on this one though. Thanks for the critique Mittens and big thanks everyone else!
This version looks good, but I feel it is fat in proportions at areas. The waist proves this IMO. Also, I like the wings you gave him. Those have to be the best wings I have seen on any bio moc of this scale. Also, I LOVE THAT SWORD! And one last thing that kinda bugs me, why is everything but his head custom? I really would have loved to see a custom head. Overall, the moc looks good, but some areas are fat. Anyway, keep mocing dude.
Wow! Excellent work on the new Cossy! He's awfully different, but he'll take some getting used to I'm sure! So glad to see you have returned! I still can't believe you managed to post yours before me! Hope you don't mind the fact it's taken me so long to post my version of Cossy, or that he's still silver! XD
Man it seems like after ten years since my first Bionicle I would be able to build something this good. Really nice job, better than ever before. Love the wing design. Wish I was as good as you Cossy, but I think I'll go back to building my tank armada instead of Bionicle... Anyway, this is getting long, glad you're back, and good luck in your last year of school!
Yeah the wings are somewhat fragile, that's for sure, but it's not like they break just by moving the wings around. I totally agree though, and I hate that they are fragile, but I do like the look they give :) Nice to meet you Garrett :) Hey no problem man, I actually like people using the Surge mask, not like I own the dang thing :P
YOU'RE ALIVE! :D Well, I have to say, there aren't many flaws that I can nitpick at, and I normally find looooots to nitpick, so. Well, I think I should explain who I am, and why excactly I'm here.
So, I'm a newer member of the LEGO community 'round here, and I do mainly Bionicle and medieval stuffs. I'm also a friend of Werty's. Oh, and if you happen to stop by my page, I'll let you know here and now: I DIDN'T STEAL COSSY'S MASK.
XD Our self-MOCs share a mask, but soon, they won't, I'm changing it :D.
Overall, very nice work Cossy, and can't wait for your next post :D See ya around! :)
Thanks all :) Glad you like him Popcorn, good to see you :D Oh I don't plan on having more massive breaks, don't you worry! Gotta agree with you Taile on the hands looking awkward in holding some of the weapons, I do need to improve that! HAHA thanks Crowe, I had the flame wing idea for awhile just needed my cracklink :P
What can I say, Ben? - you beat me to the punch with the wing idea. I just had nowhere NEAR that many trans-blue flametongues (Thank You, BrickLink?)=). Sure makes it look good, though - nice work, m8. Cheers!~
Greatly improved, I feel like the old cossy was well just that old, not as in boring, but a little outdated, while the new cossy has a sleek modern look. (Man I hope you understand what I mean and I don't look like a rude jerk). I really like all those weapons, though I think the length of the handles on the swords are a little short and the positioning of the fingers when cossy holds his weapons is awkward. The wings are very nice.
HAHA!!! YESSSS! You're ALIVE! And back in style, might I add! This looks... just amazing. The wings are, by far, the COOLEST WINGS I've seen on a MOC. Ever. So glad that you're back, and congrats on getting Mr. Gold! :D
HOLY MACAROONS! This is astounding... I really think you've outdone yourself this time! The new look and style are both great (I like the smoother feel)! And those wings... I don't even know what say about them. Also I'm loving the new weapons! That's one awesome broad sword. Anyways, glad you're back, hope you stay for a while longer this time.
Great revamp, glad you finally got this out! The look is amazing, the wings are very clever, and the leg design looks great! My only nitpicks are that his head looks a little high for the shoulders in some shots, not a huge fan of his claws, and the body seems slightly too long, but other then those minor details, this is truly worth the wait! Hope you keep at it! :D
Oh my good sweet gosh, this is sheer beauty... Far better than the original, you've made so many amazing improvements and I love the new wings and body, not to mention his weapons. And you have a Mr Gold. You're a lucky Aussie.
oh, you got the golden fig! good for you Ben! if someone deserved it, it s you! you have always been so nice, as for this piece, wow! it s polished, and very refined! all the weapons you did where in the same high quality finish, yet, very different, congrats!!! as for the system news...it s just what I had hoped for, black ravens? pleaaaaase! lol!
good to hear you re back in town Ben!!!
The trans blue lightsaber blades make a great highlight, and the wings look amazing. Also, good job finding a use for the atakus skull! I still haven't and I've been trying for years. >.> Cossy looks pretty awesome. Not overgreebled, and just bulky enough that is looks good but not overdone. The story is Nice as well, aside from minor gramatical errors here and there. I think some more of tose light trans-blue pieces would look nice if you could find more places that could be highlighted. That may just be me though. I love trans pieces in MOCs. And welcome back.
It's great that an awesome MOCer has come back on a high note :). This is the best interpretation of Cossy ever! Though his legs are a tad short, he looks less like a normal Toa and more like a reformed Toa, which I think is the look you were going for, considering his original allegiance to Teridax. My one gripe is with his swords; they seem out of place. I would consider switching them out for different short blades (Aquagon's, maybe?). However, that's just my thought. If you like it, you should keep it :). Great work! (And where is that trademark brofist you use in every page of yours? XD)
Wow! Great work dude! Love the torso, especially the rahkshi head shoulder armor. The wings are fantastic and great backstory! Man, it's so great to have you back, I joined about the same time you took your... "Extended vacation". :P. Anyway, great job!
Welcome back, good sir! I know how you feel with all of that stuff like school and personal issues going on...but I'm glad to see that you're back to MOC again. Love the new Cossy, especially the armoring on the shoulders and legs and...well, dem wings. :D I think the lower torso could have a little bit more armor so that his torso doesnt look like a capital T, but other than that I am very impressed with the building style. It's crazy awesome!
Well, Well, this was something I was NOT expecting today...! I like the look of the new Cossy, (dangit, I disassembled my Cossy a while ago, and Now I'll have to rebuild him :P) the wings look especially nice. It's good to have you back again dude, can't wait for more ;) (I saw the last pic as your Skype Icon a while ago, so there :P)
Yeah, I thought the wings would be like that.But the effect they give off is amazing!
Yeah, I suppose the weapon incident was simply a nitpick.
And No Prob Cossy, usually I leave comments like that all the time.
Thanks all :) Cheers X, another awesome comment! Man I missed MOCpages, so glad to be back :) The wings are somewhat stable, they will last, he feel over once and they were fine, but that was just one of the times, other times not so much :P
I like his weapons being silver, I mean they don't need to fit his colour scheme, anyway thanks for the awesome comment X ;)
You lucky son-of-a brick!You got Mr.Gold.
You sir are a millionaire!
BY THE GREAT SPIRIT MATA NUI!The return of Cossy is a great one.
The wings are obviously my favorite part.They are so cool, but they don't look stable.Alas I could be wrong.
The overall streamlined look is something I needed to see on Cossy for a while,and it works wonders!
The colors are awesome, but that's been there for a while.
The sword and daggerish type of weapon are very cool and work, though the daggers have silver.As much as it is cool, it doesn't fit the color scheme, but I can forgive you for that as that is the only mold in that color.
The brick built sword is very cool!
As is the electro staff.....that's what I'm calling it.
I really have no complaints to the arms and legs, they are AWESOME!
The upper arms remind me of Callan, with his brick built upper arms.
I really quite enjoyed the story.Very cool!
If this is your new style, it's definitely great Cossy.
Boy that was long.Overall it's one of the best self mocs I've seen on Mocpages.
Great work Cossy!
DEM! WINGS! Also... everything else! Great to have you back after such a long while! I love his new sword and the build, but the only nitpick I have is the length of the legs(maybe longer?) and the rahkshi head on the torso, it seems to stick out a lot. Maybe add more stuff to the heartlight area but any who, Awesome work!
Wow, THAT's a change, my dear! From your greebly, bulky style, to this new clean one. I reallt like how he looks now, more humanoid, better developed, with only two colors (blue and black). The weapons are cool, specially the system sword which fits his new look. But oh dear, the main dish here are those wonderful, marvelous wings. The best I have seen, with Malgothiel's ones, but this has a most original, cool design. Love the use of the blue flames and the Atakus helmet. Magnificent, dear, and glad to see one of the titan MOCers has come back.
