The final member of Lotem :D It is, the powerful Toa of Jungle... SEPVIREN!!! Hope you like him guys ;)
About this creation
"Defeat me you say? Well that won't be easy when I can control this whole planet with a flick of my wrist!"
Sepviren to Magmagear- Talking about Bota Magna
Element: Air and Jungle
Title(s): Glatorian, Toa, Brother, Leader, Future Chief
Mask: Kanohi Lempe: Mask of Adaptation, allows the user to adapt to any environment, very helpful for hunting
Weapon(s): Dual wrist axes, Large jungle Staff, Golo flower Thorn dagger
Story: Sepviren is the only member in the Toa Lotem who is from Bota Magna. Sepviren was known as one of the best hunters on Bota Magna! He was considered his tribes best man and was to be the future chief! Sepviren was also very smart, and a great person to have on any hunt! Another good thing about Sepviren was that he was not as savage as some of the other Glatorian who were in his tribe. This meant he was smarter and saw traps and food before anyone else! After the reformation of Spherus Magna his tribe was under threat from Dark Hunters! Everyone in his tribe joined the Dark Hunters, they felt it was the best thing to do! But Sepviren was wise, and knew they were bad! So he joined the Toa and they put a stop the Dark Hunters who were trying to take over Sepvirens tribe! Sepviren took a liking to the order of Mata Nui and decided to join up! He later became a member of the Toa Lotem.
When he joined Lotem Arvach crafted a mask for him (He also made one for himself)
with a power that suited him well. He uses it all the time in battle.
Here he is guys (Read the Fourth Wall Commentary at the end to see why I gave him the look I did) Do you like him?
A back shot :D
Now for the close ups, his lower legs, Simple, and like Davix's, they'll probably be changed in the future!
His upper legs, I wanted this part to kinda look like a massive root growing up his leg (That's just the hand pieces, the panels are for show :P)
The back of his legs and his dagger :)
His torso :D
His Heartlight and his upper torso :D
His shoulders and his head!
His upper arms, Love those Vastus pieces!
His lower arms :) (Read the Fourth Wall Commentary at the end to see why I gave the arms the look they have)
His back, very pleased with how this looks :)
Now for his weapons >:D
His wrist axes!
Sepviren: Come at me bro!
And his staff :)
Ready for action!
Epic Duo shot with Cossy :D
And another look at him before we go :)
Fourth Wall Commentary:
Well my main aim with Sepviren was to break away from the normal slim stereotype that a Toa of Air (or in this case Jungle) has. I wanted him to represent the forest and the trees.
They are strong, mighty and buff, I figured he should be too! Another thing, his arms are somewhat lanky because I kinda wanted them to represent long vines hanging from a tree.
NOW THAT LOTEM IS DONE WHAT'S NEXT YOU ASK!
Well thanks for asking! Well my next few posts will include:
A new Bounty Hunter Team I'm working on
My entries to all my MOC OFF's
Possible Diaries for Project: Battle of Kashyyyk
And that's it :)
Thanks for viewing!
Hope you liked him!
Don't forget to rate and comment!
Till Next time ;)
Fantastic Toa of plantlife! There are many greebles at the body, and the color sheme with all those different types of green looks great! The shoulders make him look strong, the Matatu-masks were greatly used there. The lower arms and legs are more simple, but with the right amount of greeble on them. It's also very nice to see the Vastus mask used on a MoC! The weapons fit him, just the spear looks to thin in my opinion, looks like he's breaking it anytime :P. Overall, 5/5 rating!
This is so cool!!!!! I really should of commented sooner!!!! He is so awesome Ben!!!! :)

I love that guy.Great use of the masks as shoulder and leg armor(if it is supposed to be armor).I never seen wrist axes before.most people do wrist blades.I have a MOC right here which has only one big wristblade.It“s not posted yet but maybe it will be soon ;) .anyways great work.You know I love your Bionicles bro.
Cheers Jan ;) Great to hear from you again ;) Looking forward to seeing this MOC of yours :D I know you do and I love that you love them ;) Well then Daggeron (since your him) I'm glad you like him :D I don't get your joke but I still appreciate it ;) I'm sorry I'm not taking Self MOC requests, sorry. I'm glad you like my stuff ;)
Epic, as usual. my favourite member of the lotem. (what i'm gonna say now is just a joke) does he have a bit of a rivalry with dogs? :P did you understand that? whatever. just pure awesomness!! i hope to see some mocs as good as this in the future. BTW I'm Daggeron 999. BTW again i sent you an invite for something i hope will be... special. i don't want to be mean, but can you make me. it's ok if you don't want to. it's just that my birthday is coming up in december. if you say yes, don't make him yet! i'm planning on posting a (slightly) upgraded version of him this week. keep on doing what you do best (if you didn't know by now you moc best :P)
totaly sweet!!! I super love it!! I like the bulkyness the best. except I don't know about the wrist axes they look kinda odd. But it's your MOC and you have every right to do what ever you want with it. 5 smiles :D
You call that sickle a dagger!?!?!?!?! Oh PS cossy on my last post i posted that because it was your most recent moc at the time. I see where you're going with the growing tree thing but the lanky arms were kind of... Odd
Cheers Popcorn! I'm really glad you like the non-custom legs on him. And you cover them well my friend! Gringat himself says you've a Greeblegod :P I can do the MOC off now bro, Thanks again, I'll comment on one of your MOC's to tell you all the details ;)
Very nice work as always, Ben! I really like how the non-custom legs look on him. Personally I'm not on of those people that HATE it when someone doesn't use custom limbs/torsos. That's actually all that I use as a base in my Bio MOCs (mainly for lack of pieces); I just cover em up the best I can. Say, when you planning on doing that MOC-off? I'm not entirely sure how they work, but I'm pretty sure that you do.....right? I've been really wanting to make something that's a titan recently, but I have no reason to build one. Any titan ideas, mate? Sometime you should show all your Bionicles in one pic. That would be awesome! Anyways, back to the MOC. I really like Sepviren a lot better than I did before. Maybe it's the pics. Well great job, again!
Nice one. A bit cluttered, tough, and proportions are quite odd(long arms, short legs, and I know it was kinda the inttention, but still odd)... I think you should also either greeble the legs more, or make the rest cleaner, so the design os more consistent... Very good, nonetheless.
Holy fur on a catfish! This is one of the best bionicles I've ever seen! A desert toa would be an idea. I do build bionicle, but not as great as this! My little story/series is called Muhdaka Rising. You can read about it on my only bionicle moc I have up. I am making the leader of the Muhdaka though!
Thanks everyone! Cheers, Maxus they came from the Exo-Force set "Shadow Crawler" Cheers Callan, yeah I kinda agree with ya, thanks ;) I'm not hurt Silent Knight! Anyway, I think I see what you mean, I'll see how I can change it :) Actually Owen he is pretty poseable, he just doesn't look it in the pics :) Glad to hear that Wertman ;) Eh Legofreak and Legobob, on Bota Magna they call em Daggers :P Can't wait Owl! Eh not sure Atrak, I think next time I'm in a MOCing block I'll build some :) That could be cool Jensen! I agree Alien, I'll change that! Thanks ;) Thanks Chopper my friend ;) I'll try and fix some of that, cheers ;) Well Evan it's actually Davix's torso design, I forgot to give him credit DX But I'm sure he'd be cool if you did that! Cheers Cody, I'll totally go with what you've said mate ;) Cheers L! Thanks RIC! Your advice was helpful ;) I believe 4 or 5 Nick, not too sure :P Thanks a bunch Crazy! Love your comments ;) No Groundquake, he's a Toa of Jungle. Cheers Connor, thanks for your advice ;) Thanks for asking Noodles ma bro ;) Well I've basically got all the pieces, but not the time :/ Hopefully I'll be able to start him soon :D It's actually Karzahni's knee Razorclaw! It's simple Ware Wolf, but the best way for me to show you is, look off the Davix How-To Callan made :) Thanks again guys! (LONG COMMENT D:)
Great moc man! Colorscheme is great, and the Glatorian Head looks good on this guy. Overall, another great Moc. Keep it up!

Whoa! Way too many exclamation points on that story! Sorry, but with all the !'s kinda wired sounding in my head. Anyway, awesome job! You did a great job with the whole tree thing. Excellent work, a await your next amazing MOC.
I love him! You certainly pulled off the solid, treelike look! His backstory is also creative and original, I like it! :) Love the use of the Matau masks on the shoulders. I thing the axes look a litte taked on though, but the concept works well. All in all, awesome job, he's definately one of the best Toa Lotem you have made.
I must say, a great ending piece to the Toa Lotem! I like especially what you did with his torso (front, back, and that waist) and I think the legs actually look good enough albeit them being simple. However, I do think the arms could use a redesign--but the concept of vines is very nice, just not very well executed. I agree with Cody too--give him a vine cape! :D Great job on all of the toa!
Heh. As a concept, this is my fav of the toa lotem. Unfortunately, as an actual moc, it's probably the third worst in my opinion. I understand what you were trying to do with the arms,but they just don't work. Vahki legs would have done better than inika legs. But the rest is pretty cool. So yeah, it's just the arms. P.S. I noticed that arvach's and sepviren's first picture look really similar.
I can totally see where you were going with the tree look, but the arms still don't look very good in my opinion. If you revamp him in the future, maybe try beefing up the arms and making a vine cape. That way you can have proportionality while still getting your vines. :)
So is he the tree guy ? anyways, it's cool .I really like him, but first, constructive criticism. His legs are too small compared to his arms, like looking at this pic http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=291740&id=/user_images/62753/1318852721m you can see the arms are really long. Second little complaint, his hips are too small, but that's just my opinion. But still, he looks super awesome !The masks as shoulders is a really great look , and the 3 colors of green are really hard to combine, and you did amazing ! I'll be honest, I give it a 4.5/5, but as smiles, I'll give you a 5. your a pro, and you deserve it either way.
Nice job! :D The look you were going for really works for this MOC. THe only thing that bugs me is that the red and silver pieces on his staff are the only parts on him that aren't green. Also, where is the thorn dagger? Still, the MOC is very awesome, with some really good designs.
cool. i love those shoulders and upper legs. so yah, i like how he is different from most other toa, and the fact he's a Toa of the Jungle, and not a toa of air. well done, but i'm sad that the Lotem are done :'(
i like him i think what you said about the design is right trees are big bulky and thick not swift n stuff but i have only one complaint hes a bit all over the place he hasn't got a solid structure it dosent look like it fits i hope that was upsetting but anyway great job on all the toa lotem
