Man! It's been a while since my last Bionicle post...
Anyways, I came back and posted Fikar, the Blazing Warrior (my 2nd Self-Moc) this time. I hope you enjoy the Hothead...
About this creation

MOC Status: Alive and as big as a Hothead as ever...
Story: Fikar was always a... different Agori. He grew up in the Fire village of Vulcanus and was Raanu's personal guard. He didn't get along well with other Agori and most conversations ended up in an argument or fight. Eventually the Agori of Vulcanus got so fed up with Fikar that they petitioned that he was to become a Glatorian. After so much hassle, Raanu decided it was for the best. Fikar became a Glatorian of the Fire Tribe.
When he became a Glatorian, Fikar began to train almost all day, every day. Eventually, he slowed to only once a week. He loved being in the Arena and enjoyed crushing the opposition. His fighting style was very different. It was wild, unpredictable, brutal, and very tiring for others. He won many matches and didn't lose often. Eventually, he became first Glatorian after Ackar retired. This excited him even more. After each battle, Fikar would take the won shield and destroy it with his weapons (no one knows why). In addition to broken shields, Fikar broke numerous weapons. However, he did collect weapons that interested him. Eventually, the Battle of Bara Magna came along...
Fikar served a huge role in the Battle of Bara Magna for Vulcanus. He wiped out numerous battalions of Skrall and some Rahkshi. After this, he gained the nickname "The Blazing Warrior" by his fellow Glatorian. After this, he resumed Arena battling.
One day after an Arena battle, he was brought into a small, dark room and given a Toa Stone by the surviving Turaga Galaxy. They then told him that he was chosen to become the Toa Magna of Fire...
A few weeks later, a Matoran brought him to an abandoned temple. There, he met the other Glatorian who would become the Toa Magna (Kirax, Tarshduk, Strarix, Veshtar, Tarvank). When they became Toa, Fikar wasn't made leader because of his attitude. He was somehow okay with this though. Even though he was the third-in-command, Tarshduk sent him on a variety of scouting and demolition missions.
As a Toa, he learned how to operate as a team and learned to calm his anger. He was very resourceful and became tricky as well, sometimes pretending to lose the battle. When the foe turned away, he would get up and stab the foe in the back. He also led many missions, solo and partner. He was normally paired with Strarix as both excelled at demolition work. He was a key person in the events of the Mask of the Dead and the invasion of the Blaholre. He took part in so many missions that had turned the tides in favor of the Toa. When Tarshduk was given a medal but not him, he became infuriated. He took off toward the desert and set off on a huge rampage, destroying anything that was in his path. Eventually, his calmer side returned and he returned to Vulcanus. As a request by Tarshduk however, he was inducted into the Council of Toa. Raanu made Fikar the Official Guard of Vulcanus later.
Now Fikar goes on scouting missions in places of suspected Makuta activity. He hates being with Veshtar because of his ego.
Okay... Now I present... Fikar, the Blazing Warrior!
Front View, lots more greebles than before :D
Another Side View
Shins/Legs, more greebles to bulk them up because the last ones were too skinny IMO :P

His Butt :P (I gave him Kama-like armor here)
His Back, his jetpack attaches to those gray pieces
Full Arm Back View
Head Side View, I saw that mask design on a MOC awhile ago and I knew it would look great on Fikar. I added headgear by attaching it to the Ackar Mask. It gives him X-Ray vision and Thermal Vision and a Com. Neat huh? :D
Wielding Great Sword and Thornax Launcher
About to fire his Thornax launcher which fires flaming thornax
Fikar: Eat Flaming Thornax!!!! Booyah!
Using his Flame Thrower... That's what those things on his arms are for (the other is a Lava Claw though XP)
Fikar: FIYAAAAA! BURN BABY BURN!!!!!
Wielding His Knives
Fikar: Now kids, don't play with knives unless you wanna get hurt!
About to fire a Fire Arrow from his Fire Bow
Fikar: I'm like LEGOlas... Take that apple on a Matoran's head! Don't move Nishadow!!!!!
Nishadow: Uh, okay... I can still teleport though right?
Fikar: NO! Stay still!
Wielding Fire Daggers
Fikar: Come get some!
About to blast off with his Jetpack (the kama on his thighs also act as stabilizing fins)

Tarshduk: Come on!
Fikar: You just got BURNED!!!!
Poor Vamprah >XD
Brofist of my Self-Mocs
Fikar: How come I'm so Short!?!
Tarshduk: Cuz I'm the Primary Self-Moc >XD
Comparison between the Self-Mocs...
Fikar: COMMENT, RATE, and FAVE 12lego OR DIE!!!!!
Tarshduk: He doesn't really mean that... Wait! Put that Great Sword down this instant!
4th Wall: So this was a fun build. It started when I got a bunch of technic parts at the Lego Store. I decided that Fikar needed a revamp so... There ya go XD I tried for the really bulky, tankbuster look. I think I did well XD I tried to upload this yesterday but MOCpages Crashed on me >:O Oh well...
Comment and Rate! Constructive Criticism Encouraged!!!!!
By the Way, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!!!!!! GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!!!!!!!!
I think the head design is from somebody's version of Callan. Anyway, looks very tough and strong, but like Andrew said, some parts stick out too much or go from skinny to thick too abruptly, like the lower leg armor. But certainly very greebled!
