My (almost late) entry to Phos' Periodic Bionicle Contest. I hope I can still enter him...
About this creation
Race: Matoran (Turaga)
Species: Ag-Matoran (Matoran of Silver)
Element: Silver, some power over Heat and Electricity
Kanohi: Noble Conex, Mask of Intimidation
Tools: Pick-Axe Staff, Robotic Suit
Argantuan was once a very powerful and mighty Toa of Silver, immense in strength and size. But all that changed the day he turned into a Turaga.
After saving a Matoran's life by giving up his powers, Argantuan was a weak and feeble Turaga. He was ashamed of his weakness, and sought to change that.
Soooo...He built himself a giant robot suit to overcome his shortcomings.
As he dons this titanic suit of armor, he gains strength that rivials his own when he was a Toa! That, and there's the gunss...
All he has to do is activate his Kanohi Conex and the transformation is complete.
Argantuan: COME AT ME, BRO!
Yeah...I hope that Phos lets me enter this. Apparently, he meant that all entries have to be in BY today, not by the END of today...Ah well, if not, this was still a fun build. I tried using a classic feel for this Turaga, copying almost the exact design from the first ones that Lego released, except for that neck piece. The Suit was at first going to be the Turaga itself, but then I got the idea of it being a suit, just from the fact it is SO freakin huge. (in case you haven't already noticed, his name is from 'Argentium,' Latin for Silver, and Gargantuan). Anywho...
Quoting Max W.
gggrrrgh.. i believe you STOLE that from my comments...
Say what? I didn't steal anything! Drildozer was paid for! Toys R Us ain't got no claim! (<.<) (O.O) (>.>) [Plus, if you read the ending notes, the suit was originally going to be the Turaga itself. I didn't copy nutin']
Hehe, that's pretty cool. Didn't consider the mech suit, but it definitely points towards your turaga's personality. Awesome work. Great seeing those jetpacks used as feet again, and those old, launchers too. I hadn't used them since my Yellowjacket lol
I like it

nice turaga, EPIC suit! it's been fun to see so many turaga of silver, to bad it's all over :( well i await round 2 then.
That is friggin' sweet. I hope those will be commercially available by the time I get old and weak, but unfortunately I believe that the rules said mech suits wouldn't count for anything (i.e. you're judged only on the Turaga itself). But this is just so COOL... :(
