The spirit awakens... Here to walk the sundered plains once more.
About this creation

"Before me, raising the dead was simply an impossibility..."

"It wasn't supposed to happen..."

"That stone was destined for someone else..."

"But it didn't find them. It found me. And it created a monster."

"But maybe, just maybe, a monster is what this world needed."

"I hope so. I really do."

Name: Previously Tahiro, now Sunder
Aliases: Corpse, Deadwalker, Toa, Reaper, fire-spitter
Species: Reanimated Ta-Toa
Gender: Male
Status: Undead
Affiliations: Toa Alkan
Kanohi: Calix Nuva, Mask of Fate, in shape of a Hau
Powers: Control of fire, resistance to heat, decay-inducing touch

After the events of The Reforming, Spherus Magna was returned to its original state, pre-shattering. However, something had changed. The planet was extremely unstable. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and floods raged. In the new colonies, riots broke out. People were dying left, right and centre and nobody was doing a thing. In short, it was chaos.

Spherus Magna couldn't take it any more. An event known now as the Sunder broke the planet once more into two pieces, floating around in space. They became twin planets, known as Regium Magna and Marus Magna. Regium Magna was mostly solid ground and was the larger of the two planets. Marus Magna was almost entirely water, with only a few scattered islands across its whole surface. One of those islands was Agni Nui.

Angi Nui was one of the Matoran colonies. It was the largest island on the planet, consisting of most imaginable terrains. In every direction, it was surrounded by water. Life restarted.

For the first time in recorded history, manufacture of new Matoran started. Not many, but enough to populate the island. New Rahi followed and soon, it was as if they had been there the whole time. Eventually, entirely new sentient species emerged and they managed to live in peace with the Matoran.

Every Toa on the island put their energy into Toa stones and named successors, giving each a specific challenge that only they would know how to solve in order to get their stone. Most accepted. Many did not, however, and the left over Toa stones remained hidden until unwary travellers would randomly come across them and absorb their powers.

A group of Ta-Matoran scientists came across one of the stones. It didn't react to them, so they assumed it was inactive. They couldn't have been more wrong.

The scientists returned to Ta-Agni, to find that it had been razed to the ground by Dark Hunters. In their sorrow, the stone was dropped, and it landed on the recently deceased body of another Matoran.

The stone started to glow and heat up, and a steady humming noise started up. The humming grew to a deafening roar and then, as if it had never happened, the noise stopped.

Then, all hell broke loose.

In a blossom of fire, Ta-Agni was wiped off the map entirely, replaced with a crater. And who was in the middle of that crater? The Ta-Matoran, now Ta-Toa. And that Toa's name?

Sunder, after the great catastrophe that shaped his planet. It was all he could remember.

He had no idea of his previous identity, who he was before he was brought back to life. But there was one thing he did know.

The Dark Hunters were going to pay... Dearly.

Ok! So that's Sunder, my self-moc! He isn't perfect, but by my standards, he's pretty damn close.

The boots! Inspired by Fenrek's leg style.

I wanted the hands to look like gloves or gauntlets. Do you think it worked? Either way, I like it. They match his boots ;3

The mask. Now, I know I'm going to get a lot of comments saying that it doesn't match the colour scheme, but I actually really like it. It looks almost regal, like a crown. It also adds a bit of contrast.

Custom head!

Back. Got some fancy exhaust pipes.

The colours. Black is supposed to be like clothing, silver/grey like armour, and red like skin.

His weapons. Quite an extensive collection. The wrist-axes and flamethrower attach to his wrist on the exposed joint thingy.

Teaser.

What do you think? C&C, hope you enjoyed!

EDIT: Woohoo! Made it onto the homepage! Thanks guys :)

Quoting Ben Veazey Very interesting and cool Self-MOC! Gotta love those tonfas. :D
Cheers! I think tonfa are really underrated weapons- everybody just goes for a sword.

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Certainly like the gauntlets and greaves, but the rest of the colorscheme is all over the place. Color layering doesn't seem to exist on him. Speaking of the gauntlets, those wings really shouldn't be there. The wrists are rather bare, too, so it doesn't exactly look armoured. The waist is a tad skinny at the point of articulation. Mask has no excuse to be gold, honestly. The upper legs look haphazard at best and the arbitrary shoulder spikes don't have any business being there either. The giant silver blades he has don't look very good. The MOC is, well, it's alright, but it needs improvement. Good to see you going more and more in the direction of custom though. It's not bad by any means, just needs a lot of small tweaks. The story, just gets better and better. I mean, you perfectly rebooted Bionicle without rebooting Bionicle. How did you even do that?! :P Perfect, dude, absolutely perfect story idea. The backstory goes a long way with a lot of community members, and yours is one to remember.
Thanks a lot! :) I have to say, I agree with the majority of your critiques. Being a self-MOc, you can expect many improved versions of him in the future, and I'll try to keep in mind what you've said. Cheers!

Very, very nice. I like the lower leg design and I like the boot and gauntlet idea. I also quite like how the golden mask contrasts and the weapons look very nice with this build. Though he's a bit gappy and his wrists are a bit thin under the armor. But otherwise, very nice!

Quoting Chains ~ Awesome job man! It looks nice but there are a few problems. I really like the idea of clothes and armour and stuff. I also really like the way the boots were made. The story is also really good and interesting! His weapons look nice as well. Some of my gripes though are mostly with the colour scheme. It looks a bit too all over the place. The red, black and silver are fine, But I think the trans-green and gold need to go. I know you said you liked the look of the gold but I think it sticks out too much. I also think the inside of the lower arms look a bit bizarre and could be made to look a little more natural. Anyway, awesome work! Can't wait to see more!
Thanks! I agree with you on the stuff about the lower arms, but it's only like that so the wrist-mounted weapons can attach. Anyway, cheers for the comment!
