Fallen Knight (entry to 11th r/Bioniclelego moc contest)
My entry to the 11th r/bioniclelego moc contest, the Fallen Knight! I apologize in advance for the photo quality. I'm using my iPads camera (which works a lot better than I thought it would)
About this creation
Long ago, Ekimu and Makuta built robot peacekeepers to defend the citizens of Okoto from the island's many dangers. They called them Knights, for they were taught honor and selflessness, along with many different skills of combat. For many years, these Knights protected the island from rogue beasts and natural disasters. Because of their great skill, they were hardly ever touched in combat.
But one day, a lone Knight was patrolling deep underground in the caves of the region of earth. He was attacked by a hoarde of skull spiders, and though he fought valiantly, he was overpowered by the sheer number. He fought to the very last one, but that was one too many. When the skull spider latched itself onto the Knight's face, something in the Knight had changed. He grabbed the creature and held it in his hands, staring at it for a full day. He then traveled around the islands and caught hundreds of skull spiders, which he slowly but surely released on his fellow Knights.
The changed warriors did not harm the villagers of Okoto, but no longer protected them either. Eventually Ekimu noticed the odd behavior when the Knights would no longer follow his orders. After conversing with his brother, they decided to retire the machines to the deep caves of the region of earth. Using his mask of control to command them, Makuta and the protectors sealed them underground until a time came when Ekimu and Makuta could find a way to solve the problem.
Many years have passed. The Toa have arrived and found their masks of power. But Onua dug too deep searching for his. The light that seeped into the cave reawakened the Knights.
And upon seeing Onua and not recognizing him, they saw him as a threat, along with the rest of the Toa...

This is my entry to the 11th r/bioniclelego moc contest. I would've liked to have spent significantly more time building something over a foot tall and super complex, but my schedule right now doesn't allow for me to spend too much time outside of eating, sleeping, and doing homework. I hope you all enjoy this and good luck to all of my fellow competitors!

Back view

So I haven't built in a while and I thought I might make a comeback with something I've never tried before. Favoring larger builds, for more detail and challenge, I decided to create a smaller build to tie in to the new BIONICLE 2015 story. I'm excited to see where lego takes my childhood with this!

2015 Tahu for size comparison

Luckily this build ended up being roughly the same height as Tahu. Seeing as I wanted these Knights to be an opponent similar in standing to the Toa, I couldn't have hoped for a better result!

Pose!

Being more accustomed to building larger models, I was surprised to find how much easier it was to get this one to stand up and pose. The joints don't have to support too much wait, which keeps them from flailing around aimlessly.

Side view (without arm)

This was a completely custom build with no one-piece frame. It took me an hour, but I figured out how to do a unique, flexible torso that incorporated the Toa Nuva chest armor.

Leg view

I was going for a more robotic feel with the overall piece, so I didn't beef out the legs.

Another pose!

Thankfully I have returned to building. I remember putting away all of my Legos at the beginning of the school year to try and focus more on my academics. Now that the year is coming to an end, I have more free time to do what I want to do, so hopefully I'll be building a lot more!

Thanks for checking this out! I'd be more than happy to hear some feedback!

Quoting JosephC 123 What would be more impressive than revamping it would be to make two or three of them! Nice job.
Good idea! I'll look for the pieces and see what I can do.

Was this guy at all based off of a hive knight from destiny? He certianly looks the part.

Seeing as no one else has given you the feedback you wanted... it's a generally balanced MOC with some not as balanced parts. The armor on the back of the torso is rather large and the legs seem underarmored. The red balljoints on his elbows stick out a bit, although personally I think adding more red to him would make him pop out a bit more, and you seem to use colors in the torso that are nowhere found in the limbs. The design of the torso is pretty good, and I like the helmet and overall vibe he has. Welcome back to MOCing!

Thanks for the constructive criticism! I ran out of black ball joints and didn't want to dig through my parts to search for more so I opted out for red. I like the idea of splashing it with color though. Maybe I'll revamp him and make him a general or something.
