Mantax Hordika of my Barraki Hordika line. For the Barraki Hordika, I didn't bother adding Rotuka spinners due to the sacrificer to their designs I would have had to make. He is the sixth one I completed, though he is the only one I don't take full credit for, as my buddy did about half of it. He designed a good 3/4 of the body, I completed the last 1/4 with the rahkshi necks for the butt, and I did all the legs, though 6 of 8 are taken from the Fenrahk(spelling?) design. This is, by far, my most massive Bionicle moc, as far as pieces go at least.
About this creation
Mantax, as the other 5 Barraki, was part of an experiment to make powerful warriors. Mantax was a part of the 3rd wave, along with Ehlek, who received the heaviest doses of Visorak Venom. Their animal forms(eel and manta ray) were over-powered by the Visorak DNA in the venom, and the two evolved into much more arachnid forms. Mantax, however, underwent more than just a Hordika transformation, as several Kraata crawled into his cocoon, and merged with his mutating form. This caused Rahkshi bodies to be combined with his, and imbued him with the ability to create Kraata. He can create 12 Kraata per day, in pairs of the same type, allowing for easy creation and activation of Rahkshi. All Kraata and Rahkshi created by Mantax Hordika are under his power, thought his mind altered during his transformation, making him more insect that warrior, and he leads with instinct. Mantax Hordika is physically the strongest of the Barraki Hordika, but only due to his size. Carapar Hordika has more strength to scale.
