This is my MOC Mavkrea in his current and updated form. His original build, while similar to this current one, had issues with posing. I've since made a few modifications to him that massively increase his posing, as well as replaced old silver parts with black parts to make him look almost completely black in color. Chances for further modification to him are very high.
In addition, I finally got around to building the weapon I had always wanted to give Mavkrea; his custom firearm nicknamed by him "Fist."

Mavkrea's original feet and lower leg armor were some of his major problems, so I've since redesigned both of these things
I added some extra parts to Mavkrea's head to make him closer to the look I wanted
Mavkrea without Fist
The piston supports for his legs are now in much better positions than the original model, allowing for more leg movement
His chest armor went through some minor changes, but they're only cosmetic. His upper leg supports (the ones with the dark bluish gray Metru legs) have also been changed from the original model to allow for more movement
I was sort of hoping I could get Mavkrea to lug Fist over his shoulder like a standard badass, and thought it made sense given Mavkrea's burly physique. Sadly, it looks a little awkward here.

This is Mavkrea's personal firearm, Fist. With Mavkrea's unusually large size for his race, no known small arms existed that were suitable for his massive hands and large fingers. Part of Mavkrea's story involves a terrible war he participated in. Due to his country's military draft, Mavkrea was forced into service. As a result, he decided the only way for him to have his own personalized gun suitable to his size was to build his own. "Fist" was the result. Fist is in fact a heavily modified artillery cannon, redesigned to fit into Mavkrea's large hands and function like a standard firearm. Fist was also repurposed to fire the custom slugs Mavkrea built for it, effectively making Fist a very powerful shotgun with unrivaled force and blast spread compared to other small arms of the universe Mavkrea resides in. Throughout Mavkrea's service, he used Fist for a variety of incredible feats, like knocking out groups of enemies in a single blow, and blasting holes through the very walls of enemy fortresses.
Mavkrea is a major character in my upcoming series on my YouTube channel, "Dracus360." The series takes place in a universe outside of the BIONICLE universe, and has no connection whatsoever with BIONICLE's story in general. The story elements surrounding Fist and Mavkrea will be made more clear over the course of that series once I get it rolling. Thanks for checking this out! Hope you liked it!
I saw the glorious stomp video, and then saw you upload this just now. Love the updates on Mavkrea, and his weapon "fist". Funny thing though, i too am trying to turn one of my mocs completely black. Overall, great moc

Very nice MOC. Have you thought about joining groups? It could bring in more viewers.
I am part of one group, but any that send invitations I generally accept. Honestly, I'm not looking for views. Just anyone who happens to stop by. :) But, I'll try that out for sure. Couldn't hurt. Thanks!
