About this creation



Name: Calbus
Species: Visorian
Gender: Male
Origin: Visorak Island, Shore Village
Powers: Emotion Synergy
Kanohi: Crast
Weapons: Goldenheart Cannon
Occupation: Freelance bounty hunting
Allegiance: Chaotic Neutral
Affiliation: Independent bounty hunting crew "Kraawa Gang"
Bio: Calbus formerly lived on a small island called Visorak. The Visorian lived peacefully in a series of small villages, keeping to themselves. At some point a Brotherhood member by the name of Chirox arrived on Visorak. The locals were unsure what to make of his presence; it quickly turned out to be unwanted when Chirox released an army of spider Rahi, (later named Visorak after the island,) which rapidly decimated the land and the citizens.

About one hundred Visorian (including Calbus and Tobduk) managed to get away, sailing to the island of Xia. They stayed as a group due to their previous isolation, but split up after traveling to Stelt. Using their innate powers and the fighting skills learned in their brief time traveling, Calbus and a few others decided to form a loose bounty hunting union. After being attacked by Dark Hunters over a claimed bounty, they made a name for themselves. This hit squad was dubbed the "Kraawa Gang", after the elusive Rahi that only got larger if you hit it, which reflected their ability to grow in skill and experience after every time they fought.

As a Visorian, Calbus has the ability to convert emotion into energy. In his specific case, this is the power to convert feelings of pride or glory into physical stamina. Because of this, he is usually in a positive mood, appearing very self-confident and possibly egotistical at times. After a battle it is not uncommon for Calbus to slowly walk through the battlefield observing the clean damage he inflicted, which boosts his own pride in himself, thereby strengthening him.

The Goldenheart Cannon was originally a prototype weapon on Nynrah, which was stolen by a Dark Hunter, and in turn looted by Calbus. It fires blasts of plasma and is fueled by kinetic energy. Calbus prefers to fight long-range, so this is a perfect tool to use in tandem with his Kanohi Crast, with which he pushes back foes that get too close for comfort.





































The backstory for Calbus draws on the official story of Tobduk, though obviously my version isn't 100% canon. For example, in canon, the island was named after the spiders. But I wanted to have a name for the place and for the people living there, so I reversed that. I also upped the number of surviving Visorian from "a few" to about one hundred. Just thought I'd note these changes here. They're a part of my headcanon or my personal story, which I'll post more about later.


Fun MOC to build. That's about it.

I wouldn't say you copied me. MOCs can look similar without being the same. Thanks. :)

Um... heh heh... I only just realized that my self-MOC looks a bit too much like this guy... (breaks out in nervous sweat) You'll excuse me if you think I copied you, yes? Because the resemblance was totally accidental. (Here's a link. Mind checking him out? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/395562) Moving on to the review. My opinion of you has now been changed from "Hey, this guy's really good!" to "Holy crap! Give this man a medal!" He's that good! Black and silver, the Volitak, the Skyblaster... this guy is spewing awesome! Over 9000 smiley-faces! Outstanding work!

I like Calbus, a lot, he's one of your best IMO. His backstory is pretty cool, I like it. I have a storyline in mind , not to sure if I like my idea though, we'll see, I'm hoping to surprise everyone and hope they like it. Awesome moc as I said, the back stories for your mocs are dark and intense, not many bios are like that....keep up the good work!

Quoting 5hadow 55555 Jaw falls off face, that is epic. one/two suggestion try pehkui or hydraxon might be better.
The intended mask was originally a silver Pekhui, but I don't have one and couldn't get one, so I went with the Volitak. I was saving Hydraxon's helmet for Paxiad. Thanks!

Quoting MacLane Mars Pretty awesome MOC, the design as always is practically flawless. My only critique is actually just in the story. If he's a Visorian then how come he looks essentially the same as a Toa? Or is that supposed to be his nationality?
You tell me that Trinuma, Tobduk, et cetera don't look like Toa. ;) There are many species in-story that look similar externally, but have many differences in terms of powers and culture.

Ah I see, still excellent moc, love the shape of the legs and body in comparison to the arms.

  November 1, 2013
If there is one little thing I can say, it's that the waist may be a little too skinny since the leg armor sticks up past the legs. Anyways, this moc is really well done. The amount of technic and armor pieces used is great, and you did a good job at making him "full". The mask and the Skyblaster really fit this moc :D Great stuff.

Quoting The Traveler Very good, even for you, Chro! I'm seeing a lot of new design techniques in this, and the music selection is just perfect!
Thanks! :D
Quoting MCLegoboy ! I don't know why, but I just realised that mask looks like a skull. Perhaps it was the music that started off sounding like the Terminator theme, but it looks awesome. This guy looks killer.
Thanks MC. Yeah, the mask does look kinda like that, eh? Or maybe a gas mask to some extent.

Quoting Silenthunt Productions Every time I see a moc from you it makes me want to moc more XD. Although I won't lie, when I saw the first picture the first thought that came to mind was, "Did he make Rex?" and then I saw the rest and I just laughed at myself for being silly. Keep up the good work mate!
I was actually considering making him into Rex because of the self-MOC round from some contest or other.
Quoting Clever Crowe Another very fine bit of Figure-work, Chro. Excellent closure and finishwork on each section of the limbs; REALLY nice construction. Proportionally, that gun's a Win, too. Cheers!~
Thanks Crowe! :)

Quoting Millsy _ ...no he doesn't. (you know what I mean)
He has two elbows, Jakob. The small HF bones are not supposed to represent double-jointed elbows, they're just supposed to lengthen the short upper arms.

Quoting Millsy _ A wondrous build. I enjoy the use of the original Mata head and the effectiveness of the feet. Of course, there's always my little sadistic gripe over the fact that this dude has two elbows :/. But that's just me. Great job!
He has two elbows because he has two arms, Jakob.

Yeah, I find that groups don't generally contribute to my popularity, although that's probably because I don't use them that much for sharing MOCs.

Quoting Stormjay Rider I think I know a few ways to do those feet, but they involve customizing.
In that case you're wrong! :P
Quoting Smooth Jazz I figured out the feet pretty easily. :P Anyway, great build all around, especially the torso.
Really? Try me. ;)

Quoting Alien Entity aw man, so awesome... ^-^
:D
Quoting Coconut Fanatic Great lower arm design, they look like gauntlets almost. The foot design is also exceptionally well done, it flows incredibly well. The shoulder joint design is completely baffling me, I can't understand what you did there that makes it flow so well. Not sure if those little guns under his pits fit well though :/
Thanks Spencer. The feet were basically designed the way they were just for the flow of those pieces, haha. The shoulders are pretty simple- just an axle running to some liftarms which are connected to the balljoint and have a Rahkshi head on top. And I agree that the ray gun greebles were weird too. :P
Quoting Uber Bricks Awesome Bionicle!
Thank you! :)

Quoting Toa Infernum Wow, nicely done dude! Definitely my favorite from you in a while! Love the legs and torso! Lower arms are a little too bulky in my opinion, but the skyblaster is epic! Love the tube! :D
It seems the arms were wider than the upper legs in some places, which is proportionally irregular, but I hadn't noticed it before. Thanks Infy.
Quoting Ventum (Mittens) Great build Ben. LOVE the lower arms and the foot design. Still cannot believe that trans yellow Barraki eyes exist. Anyway, great build dude :3
Thanks James. I was surprised too; pretty sure they're only in one set.
Quoting Des Demon Love it! :P
