It feels like forever since I've built a mech, so for this post, I decided to make four. The two in each pair are completely identical and 100% black. Enjoy!
About this creation
The 'Gemini' class shadow mech is a highly advanced walker whose biggest advantage is that it always travels in pairs. Their dark coloring and near-silent footfalls make them difficult to detect, and if you are lucky (or unlucky, as the case may be) enough to glimpse one, it probably means the other is sneaking up behind you.

Leg closeup. I'm very pleased with how they look from the front, the side is a little narrow though.
Sometimes 'Gemini' mechs are accompanied by the smaller 'Gemin-aid' drones that can provide distractions, extra firepower, or go places that the 'Gemini' mechs can't go.
The only part of the mechs that aren't completely black or completely identical is the winches. One has a grappling hook, and the other one a crane-style hook.
These hooks can be used for a variety of purposes. They can repel down a cliff face, tangle up an adversary, use your imagination.
Nice! I like the pic with the Stars Rahkshi getting owned by a couple of Gemini-aid mechs that are hardly even as big as its feet! the larger Gemini mechs are very cool, but WHERE DID YOU GET ALL OF THOSE BLACK PIECES?!! Arrgh, I wish I had that many black pieces out of the 500,000 or so LEGO bricks I have!!

These must look incredible in real, if only photographing black wasn't so hard! From what I can make out, the shapes on these are great. I love the quad antenna, cannon assembly.

You Got one of those New Bionicles too huh? The last of them. I got mine today. I wanted Tahu, but He's sold out in the Lego store & Online too. Instead I got Takanuva, And His mask is working out pretty well on my New Earth Titan. I have 5 Titan to upload soon!
