Thanatos
Alright, this is where things get serious! Though I've built taller MOCs before, this is currently my tallest MOC assembled at the moment, and it's Thanatos!
About this creation
“You must forgive Thanatos for his tyrannical disposition; his allotted task is a cruel one, and his age has made him jaded.”
-Edoth to Cilla, The Contenders #20

Thanatos:
Thanatos is an omnipotent “God of Death” created by the Great Beings, who acts as the antithesis to the Great Spirit Mata Nui; while the latter creates life, the former destroys it. Thanatos is often mistaken as a malicious, villainous character, though in reality is an honourable being of stable integrity; the many of years of carrying out his gruelling task had hardened him into cruelty and anger, though his time on Racta Magna had softened him somewhat. Nevertheless, he remains a force to be reckoned with, one that only a fool would dare challenge.


Thanatos in his fire realm. (Contenders #31)

Thanatos was created by the Great Beings, shortly after they designed Mata Nui. Similar to that entity, Thanatos also piloted a large mechanical body, though it was eventually incinerated in a failed attempt to destroy a large star. For many eons, Thanatos remained a formless mist, carrying on his charge to bring death to the dying. Legends quickly formed around this entity, commonly depicted among the Matoran as a horned demon; Thanatos would later mimic this archetypal visage when he eventually assumed a biomechanical form, to complete his tasks with greater ease. In addition to this, he created three other beings from his own essence, to act as his servants: Mordath, Migor and Edoth, known collectively as the Destroyer’s Three.


The first form. (Thanatos, the Forgotten Nightmare)

Shortly after this, Thanatos learned of a mystical device known as the Gate, a rift between dimensions that allowed one to resurrect dead beings; this naturally concerned the God of Death, and so he set out to destroy the Gate and the planet on which it resided, Racta Magna. Thanatos was antagonised by the mechanical Guardian of the Gate, and a group named the Toa Racta; the latter knew they could not defeat him by conventional means, and so they tricked him, trapping him and his minions inside a Black Hole. They remained here for many years, until they were freed by a Makuta named Reshak, whom enslaved them under the threat of trapping them again inside the black hole; Thanatos pretended to be subservient to Reshak, only to strike him down at a later point.


Reshak and Thanatos. (Contenders #13)

The God and his minions left the planet in order to make up for lost time, but found that there was too much to be done to rectify their absence, and so had to divide their efforts. Thanatos sent Edoth and Mordath back to find a way to destroy the Gate, while he and Migor went out to correct the balance of Life and Death. While back on Racta Magna, Edoth and Mordath competed with each other as to who could destroy the Gate first, with Edoth aligning with a Toa team known as the Contenders, and Mordath hiring several Dark Hunters to aid him. This angered Thanatos greatly, who reached out to them and demanded they work together, only to be defied. Nonetheless, Mordath ended up destroying the Gate, and Thanatos summoned them back to his side.


Speaking to his minion, Edoth. (Contenders #18)

However, the Gate’s destruction held disastrous consequences; villains known as the Shadebringers were released in the explosion, and in the following year they defeated the Contenders and took over the planet; noticing something amiss, Thanatos and the Destroyer’s Three returned to the planet and gave the Shadebringers a cease-and-desist, one which the villains openly mocked. The group retreated into Racta Minus, plotting a counter attack; at one point Thanatos almost resolved to abandon the planet, but Edoth, having befriended the Contenders, convinced him otherwise. Thus, they gathered all those who opposed the Shadebringers and formed a collective known as the Champions of Day, with Toa Raxonax of the Contenders in the forefront.


Returning to Racta Magna. (Contenders #38)

This new collective battled their way to the entrance of Racta Major, before taking a day to recover. During the fight Thanatos had managed to destroy the mechanical Guardian of the Gate, who had been tricked into allying with the Shadebringers. Although Thanatos lost his hand in the fight, he refused to regenerate it, as he considered it as his “first lesson in the ways of the corporeal”. The Champions of Day then entered the city while Thanatos and the Destroyer’s Three distracted the two most powerful Shadebringers, Aroxion and Shadonax; the former managed to overwhelm Thanatos and steal his flame, ramping up to an all new power level. The Champions of Day and the Contenders worked together to slay Aroxion and free the planet.


Fighting the Guardian of the Gate. (Contenders #44)

After friendly goodbyes to the Racta Magnans, Thanatos and his minions left the planet, where they would carry out their duty to the end of time.


Alright, here he is! I believe I've solved all of the problems of the old one in this version; he's not too tall, he's not skinny, and I've gotten rid of most of the Silver and the Gunmetal Grey (I couldn't help the half silver chest pieces on his shins. I would paint it out, but I know that there are a lot of purists watching, so I won't do it.)

The back.

Showing off the chest and the head, my two favorite parts of the MOC.









Compared to the Jankori. Heh, Imagine what the V1 Jankori would have been like compared to this guy.

Just showing you the difference between a Hero Factory Titan and a Wertman 8 Titan.

Right you are, Evo.





Just for those who were wondering why Metru Man has lasted this long.

With his followers, the Destroyer's Three.

I wonder if anyone will figure out who this is. (Clue, his name is actually mentioned on this page.)

Anyway, See you then!

Quoting HyperShadow 623 I have missed such amazing updates! ARGH! This is great, beautiful none the less. I see that you are seeming to condense your MOCs in size, and that is great, because they look fantastic! Thanatos is so full and bulky and amazing (As always) Keep it up!
Thanks Hyper! Yeah, I wanted to shorten my MOCs a little, because I thought some were getting a little too tall.

Quoting Morzorka The Vortixx High Marshal Yes a Law Lord, Bionicles entrusted by the Great Beings to govern the Laws of time and space outside of the Matoran universe, the originals were created at the same time as Mata Nui and trained by Artahka, Morzorka is the Law Lord of Gravity (you can read his Bio on his page) and there is a vacancy after the previous Law Lord of Death ironically died, seeing as Thanatos was created to moderate existence, he should be well suited to governing the Law of Death as well, if he accepts, Morzorka shall bestow upon him the mantle of Law Lord as is his rite.
Sounds interesting. I would be happy to collaborate :)

Quoting Logan Azis Very well done! Are you possibly making another series of hunt for God? That would be great!
Thanks Logan! Well, I plan to start making a comic series similar to HFG (If not better) in the summer, but that won't be under the HFG name. I am working on an animation that continues my storyline, so you'll have that to look forward to also.

Quoting L.A. Miranda Not too convinced about the feet, they look too blocky in some pics... Some Visorak feet or Metru armor should help. That would be my only point to improve, because Thanatos is just perfect asides that. Chest and head are indeed something to be proud about, but those aren't the only good things from it: you have used all those dark red and black parts magnificently, and not only that, the proportions on this MOC are so great. I can't see any flaw point, besides the already mentioned feet, that could be ever improved from my point of view, you even worked a lot on the back. Just... Magnificent, dear, one of your best (if not THE best) MOCs ever! Truly a master piece!! <3
Well, it's very touching to hear such praise, thank you :) Yeah, The feet were definately a rushed job, definately not the best I could've done in the situation. I will most likely improve these in future. Thanks :)

Quoting Garrett . EY. I have a copyright on the massive demonic villain sir =P. LOL JK. Nice job Werty! Is about as tall as Mael, I think =P
Hey, the first version of Thanatos came out before the first version of Mael, so there :P (Just messing around, no hard feelings) Glad you like it man. Wasn't trying to go for too much height, I was focusing on getting the build right this time, but he's roughly about 40 cm high (16 inches I believe). I dunno if that's the same height as Mael or not, but yeah. Thanks for the comment! :)

Quoting Legobob 29 I called it. I SO called it. But anyway, this is absolutely crazy good, man! You really put some work in here. I love how well you balanced his height compared to the rest of him. He looks really good next to the Destroyer's Three. Fantastic work my friend! The only complaint I have is his feet. Need some red and spikes (but not overboard on both). Looking forward to what you pull out next with that silver guy! :)
Thanks man, really glad you like it. Yeah, I was wondering if anyone would notice the feet, they were kinda lazy last minute stuff, and I wasn't too proud of them. Definately that would be my primary concern in a potential upgrade. Thanks for the comment man!
