Thanatos
Alright, this is where things get serious! Though I've built taller MOCs before, this is currently my tallest MOC assembled at the moment, and it's Thanatos!
About this creation
Thanatos:

Thanatos is a unique being who was designed by the Great Beings to act as the moderator of existance. Whilst the Great Beings create life to their hearts content, Thanatos is there to trim down the numbers, to ensure that there is no overpopulation. He is not directly responsible for every individual death, but can definately be blamed for natural disasters or mass killings. Because of this, Thanatos has been branded the "God of Death", and is hated by almost every living thing. Thanatos is intelligent, but cynical and also sensative, in the way that he refuses to be insulted or to be lectured about his integrity.

Thanatos was created by the great beings, at around the same time as Mata Nui. Like Mata Nui, Thanatos also governed a large mechanical structure of similar design. However, this structure was destroyed when an attempt to destroy a particularly large star backfired, and Thanatos barely escaped as a conciousness without a body. Most assumed him dead, and after a while, he was forgotten.
Thanatos returned to the Matoran Universe much later, still without a body. He had lost all memory of the form he used to have, and so scanned every depiction of himself ever in existance. Only one came with an image, however, of a giant horned monster. Thanatos, assuming that to be his original form, created the body and returned to his work. However, this body was soon to be destroyed as it was possessed by Makuta Aroxion, who forced Thanatos to abandon his body, which was destroyed in "The Days of Shadowed Magna". By this time though, Thanatos was able to reconstruct his body again very quickly, and when he did this, he also created The Destroyer's Three.
It was not long until Thanatos descovered the existance of the Gate, a bridge to the relm of the dead. Thanatos was horrified at this, as it could be used to bring back the dead and upset the balance of life and death. The Gate was housed on a planet named Racta Magna, and so Thanatos ventured to the planet to destroy the Gate (and Racta Magna also) along with his new helpers, the Destroyer's Three. Thanatos recieved serious antagonisation from the Toa Racta, the Makuta Sombrak and the Guardian of the Gate. After a long and arduous battle with all three of these forces, Thanatos and the Destroyer's Three were trapped in a Black Hole. Despite the efforts of an obsessed Toa named Raznor to free them, they remained in their prison for a long time.

Unknown to most, the imprisonment of Thanatos is having serious consequences of the whole of existance. The death rate has dropped down drastically, and the universe is beginning to overpopulate. If Thanatos and the Destroyer's Three are not freed soon, then the whole of existance may have to suffer the consequences...


Alright, here he is! I believe I've solved all of the problems of the old one in this version; he's not too tall, he's not skinny, and I've gotten rid of most of the Silver and the Gunmetal Grey (I couldn't help the half silver chest pieces on his shins. I would paint it out, but I know that there are a lot of purists watching, so I won't do it.)

The back.

Showing off the chest and the head, my two favorite parts of the MOC.









Compared to the Jankori. Heh, Imagine what the V1 Jankori would have been like compared to this guy.

Just showing you the difference between a Hero Factory Titan and a Wertman 8 Titan.

Right you are, Evo.





Just for those who were wondering why Metru Man has lasted this long.

With his followers, the Destroyer's Three.

I wonder if anyone will figure out who this is. (Clue, his name is actually mentioned on this page.)

Anyway, See you then!

Quoting HyperShadow 623 I have missed such amazing updates! ARGH! This is great, beautiful none the less. I see that you are seeming to condense your MOCs in size, and that is great, because they look fantastic! Thanatos is so full and bulky and amazing (As always) Keep it up!
Thanks Hyper! Yeah, I wanted to shorten my MOCs a little, because I thought some were getting a little too tall.

Quoting Morzorka The Vortixx High Marshal Yes a Law Lord, Bionicles entrusted by the Great Beings to govern the Laws of time and space outside of the Matoran universe, the originals were created at the same time as Mata Nui and trained by Artahka, Morzorka is the Law Lord of Gravity (you can read his Bio on his page) and there is a vacancy after the previous Law Lord of Death ironically died, seeing as Thanatos was created to moderate existence, he should be well suited to governing the Law of Death as well, if he accepts, Morzorka shall bestow upon him the mantle of Law Lord as is his rite.
Sounds interesting. I would be happy to collaborate :)

Quoting Logan Azis Very well done! Are you possibly making another series of hunt for God? That would be great!
Thanks Logan! Well, I plan to start making a comic series similar to HFG (If not better) in the summer, but that won't be under the HFG name. I am working on an animation that continues my storyline, so you'll have that to look forward to also.

Quoting L.A. Miranda Not too convinced about the feet, they look too blocky in some pics... Some Visorak feet or Metru armor should help. That would be my only point to improve, because Thanatos is just perfect asides that. Chest and head are indeed something to be proud about, but those aren't the only good things from it: you have used all those dark red and black parts magnificently, and not only that, the proportions on this MOC are so great. I can't see any flaw point, besides the already mentioned feet, that could be ever improved from my point of view, you even worked a lot on the back. Just... Magnificent, dear, one of your best (if not THE best) MOCs ever! Truly a master piece!! <3
Well, it's very touching to hear such praise, thank you :) Yeah, The feet were definately a rushed job, definately not the best I could've done in the situation. I will most likely improve these in future. Thanks :)

Quoting Garrett . EY. I have a copyright on the massive demonic villain sir =P. LOL JK. Nice job Werty! Is about as tall as Mael, I think =P
Hey, the first version of Thanatos came out before the first version of Mael, so there :P (Just messing around, no hard feelings) Glad you like it man. Wasn't trying to go for too much height, I was focusing on getting the build right this time, but he's roughly about 40 cm high (16 inches I believe). I dunno if that's the same height as Mael or not, but yeah. Thanks for the comment! :)

Quoting Wertman 8 He knows you love him really :D But yeah, glad you like. If I was going to fatten up anything it would probably be just the forearms, because I think his shoulder width is fine. Thanks anyway!

Quoting Legobob 29 I called it. I SO called it. But anyway, this is absolutely crazy good, man! You really put some work in here. I love how well you balanced his height compared to the rest of him. He looks really good next to the Destroyer's Three. Fantastic work my friend! The only complaint I have is his feet. Need some red and spikes (but not overboard on both). Looking forward to what you pull out next with that silver guy! :)
Thanks man, really glad you like it. Yeah, I was wondering if anyone would notice the feet, they were kinda lazy last minute stuff, and I wasn't too proud of them. Definately that would be my primary concern in a potential upgrade. Thanks for the comment man!

Hit the nail on the head there. I guess if you saw the original MOC it would be kinda obvious :P But yeah, thanks :)

Quoting Commander Spencer Pretty sweet job. Love the size. I'm assuming that the guy you're teasing is Raznor.
Actually no. If you check out my mini story Forgotten, you would see that Raznor had a lime green/bright red colour scheme.
