Well, here's my entry to the Bio-cup 2012 Eliminatories round. Of course, it's Lhikan. Who else would I do?
About this creation
(Copy and pasted from the Bionicle wiki)
Species Matoran (Toa/Turaga)
Group Toa Mangai
Kanohi Great Hau
Colors Red, gold
Element Fire (Active)
Occupation Crafter, Guardian of Metru Nui
Tools Toa: Fire Greatswords
Turaga: Shield, Staff
Here he is in all of his toa-mangai glory.
Upper legs- now the trouble is, I had a VERY small amount of flat-gold parts to play with. If I had more, the lower half of him would have looked much more custom, but unfotunately, I didn't. These were the only vibrant gold peices on him.
Shoulders- I like the way these turned out. The Metru feet were originally going to be gold, but similar to above I only had one flat-gold pair.
Lower arms- I couldn't really do anything to special here, as I wanted Lhikan to be able to hold his greatswords as he could originally.
Head- Now, "that's wolf's mask! Do you have a second?" I hear you say. No, this is exactly the same one Wolf uses. Trust me, I have tried to find a second one. There are none about anywhere.
Chest- Here is where I got creative. I think it looks a lot like the original chest peice, while still retaining the new improved look. Credit to kyler klotz for the design.
Lhikan: Bring it on!
Lhikan: My swords work for a great shield as well!
Lhikan: I wouldn't be half as awesome without my skyboard!
Wolf: Hey! That's my mask!
Lhikan: See ya next time folks!
Oh and before I forget, here is the original Lhikan.
4TH WALL: Well, I am back finally. There are many reasons as to my absence of bio-mocing, one being I now have a beautiful baby sister. Aww. This one took me a while, as I wanted to keep it as close as I could to the original look. Well, that's it from me.
I like it a lot, but if you had shown more clearly that there was a custom torso, added new swords (The originals were pretty bad in my opinion), then it would have been scored higher. Also, a couple of greebles on the legs would make them look less bare
Nice Lhikan revamp! It is too bad that you coulnd't have made him more custom (or had more gold pieces), otherwise this would be even more awesome than it already is! I like how it keeps that "official set" vibe. Good luck! - KP
