Aliens meets Bionicle in the latest cool creation by Kyle Peckham called Cervatus and his Power Loader. Built for the annual Bio Cup competition on MOCpages, the exosuit is designed to accommodate a 10 inch tall Bionicle figure while being fully poseable and removable from the character itself. The competition is bringing out the best of the Bionicle tribe, so check out the other entries if you have the time an inclination.
Nick V. puts useless parts to good use in this creative build of an ice warrior. It features parts that most of us wouldn’t dare to touch such as Galidor, the knights action figure helmets, and even a basketball hoop.
Sometimes the right photo can make all the difference. This photo was posted by Bio Master last week and I decided not to blog the creation because the builder referred to it as a “preview”. Although the finalized photos of this vision in gold were posted during the week, I don’t think any of them can match the power of the original teaser shot.
TBB seems to be at odds with the Bionicle building community of late, and from my limited perspective they seem very difficult to please. Bionicle builders get upset when you don’t blog Bionicle…they get upset when you blog the wrong Bionicle…they get upset if you use the wrong title…it’s all terribly exhausting. My personal message to the Bionicle community is this: “Lighten up, Francis“.
Facebook tipster Curtis D Collins is pretty sure that Shinjen the Samurai is fit for your discerning consumption. Curtis, if you’re wrong about this one buddy, that’s it for you. You’ll never get so much as a toe in the revolving door of TBB Headquarters. Your name will be no good in this town. The constant readers of this site will decide your fate as a tipster for TBB in the comments. Even their silence can be deadly.
I happen to love this model by Vlad Lisen (Rhymes_Shelter), and I think the readers will too. That face! You’re probably safe this time Collins…but watch your step my friend, especially around Tripod and Gould, those two are spoiling for a fight.
BioRays says that the inspiration for this came from Gundam and “HF Brain Attack hero core”. I know what Gundam is, can’t say the same for the latter. But I also know an eye catching build when I see one. The colour scheme is downright fantastic, and the complexity of build makes my brain hurt a bit.
And I am always a sucker for a good ordnance loadout.
Kingmarshy says that his Mechua was betrayed by his brother in battle, cursing him. His flesh now being consumed, transforming him into a living machine. All I have to say is that I would NOT want to be his brother, because Mechua is apparently wandering the oceans looking for vengeance.
Watch your back Mr. Mechua’s brother!
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another bludgeoning edition of Friday Night Fights! Tonight’s bout features two hard-bitten fighters from the ancient Bionicle school of building. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, galaktek gave his hapless opponent a beating he won’t soon forget to the tune of a 7-3 victory. With 10 vote total, last week’s bout was the most successful of the series: cheers to both Galaktek and LEGOLIZE IT MAN. I don’t usually mention the loser in the wrap-up, but it was a good fight.
Last week I was taken to task by a reader who complained that this blog-hole is prejudiced against Bionicle builders, using incendiary rhetoric like “nip around” and “Mocists”. Although I was quick to dismiss this reader as a disenfranchised malcontent, after a little research I’m forced to agree that we can do a little better in our “Bionicle Fandom” coverage. With that in mind I present the first installment in an ongoing exploration of the wonderful and thriving world of Bionicle.
