Cilla V2
I've been desparate to do this revamp, well, ever since I published the last version of Toa Cilla; I felt she was the weakest in terms of design. Time to fix that!
About this creation
“You probably think that your bulkiness makes you real intimidating, I bet- but my anger and frustration has made me the nastiest beast of them all!”
-Cilla, The Contenders #33

Cilla:
Cilla is a Toa of Lightning and a member of The Contenders. Along with her ability to control electricity and her Kanohi Faxon, which allows her to mimic Rahi, she fights with a small battle-axe. Cilla has evolved from being a very timid and gentle creature into a hardened, heavyweight hero. While still capable of displaying kindness to her friends, she is now better known for her ferocity in battle and disdain towards her enemies. She is very strongly defined by the death of her mentors, Rugaki and ‘Light Aroxion.’ She is currently in a strong, stable relationship with one of her fellow Contenders, Toa Montu.

Cilla was a Vo-Matoran living on Racta Magna, who at one point helped to protect Rugaki, the ‘daughter’ of Aroxion, from a Dark Hunter named Sohbec, who had been assigned to kill her. In a display of gratitude, Cilla was transformed into a Toa and taken under Rugaki’s wing, along with another rogue Makuta nicknamed ‘Light Aroxion’, due to his physical resemblance to the Sombrak leader Aroxion. Sometime later, she re-encountered Sohbec, who attempted to kill her before she could deliver a message to Toa Raxonax about his doppelgänger; he failed to stop her. Later still, she ran into a Toa named Montu, whom she fell in love with. Together they faced another Hunter titled ‘Les Tenebres’ and a parasite known only as ‘the leech’, and on their victory, the two became a couple; she invited Montu to live with her and the two rogue Makuta.

The four of them lived happily in the ancient city of Nolybas until much later, when Makuta Soldok and Makuta Bestox of the Sombrak entered and engaged in combat with them. This fight was lost and it resulted in the death of Rugaki and the apparent death of ‘Light Aroxion’. She and Montu retreated out of Nolybas until they met two other Toa, Parah and Galika, who took them to Racta Major; here, they discovered ‘Light Aroxion’, who had survived. Cilla soon accompanied Galika to retrieve an artefact instrumental to the Sombrak’s defeat, fighting and beating Bestox along the way. They then gathered with the rest at Racta Major, where they defended the gates against all of the Sombrak. They battled Bestox once again, this time resulting in the Makuta’s death. Cilla was dismayed to hear that ‘Light Aroxion’ had also perished in the battle. She and Montu decided to remain in Racta Major, mourning the loss of both their fallen partners.

Cilla then fell into deep grief after this; in an attempt to snap her out of it, Montu invited her to join the Contenders in order to seek out the last surviving Sombrak member, Reshak. The group set out to find him but were soon repulsed by his servants: Dukrina, Apothrahk and Thisrahk. While there, they made friends with a being called the Jankori and fought Sohbec once again. They returned to the city to fight a machine known as the IRM, which had been running rampant across the city; Cilla was the one to defeat it. However, the following fight with Reshak resulted in a loss, where Cilla was accidently wounded by Raxonax. She fortunately recovered in time to help defend Racta Major from a final attack by Reshak. She battled both Thisrahk and Sohbec, being defeated by the latter. Fortunately, Reshak’s company was defeated by Takathorax. Cilla again clashed with Sohbec, this time defeating him, in battle with Raxonax’s doppelganger, Shadonax.

Cilla went on a sort of ‘romantic holiday’ with Montu. On their journey, they were approached by a former ally of Reshak, Edoth of the Destroyer’s Three, asking their help in tracking four Gostoks, ancient creatures who had been resurrected by the Gate, a mystical divide between the world of the living and the dead. The Toa eventually agreed to help, rushing to track down the Gostoks while also fighting Edoth’s brother, Mordath, who was looking for the Gate. The Gostoks ended up being involved in the Platonic Justice, a group of villains lead by the revolutionary Dread attempting to overthrow Racta Magna; it was at this point that the trio reunited with the other Contenders, plus another Toa named Tyranca, who had joined them on their journey. As one, the Contenders attacked the camp of the Platonic Justice, dispersing the movement and destroying the Gate. The Gate’s destruction caused residual portals to open, and the Contenders endeavoured to close them.

A year of mundanity followed these events, one that was eventually broken by the resurrection of Shadonax. The Contenders attempted to defeat this old foe, but they were promptly bested; they were locked away in Racta Major’s inner vault and sedated by the resurrected Makuta Astrok, one of the tyrannical Shadebringers. Raxonax deduced that his allies could be restored through physical force however, so Cilla was quickly awakened. After some convincing, the Contenders were eventually motivated to take up arms against the Shadebringers, only to be completely annihilated by them. Cilla and the others were soon resurrected by Shadonax and placed back into their cells.

Cilla is currently trapped in the inner complex.


Here she is! I wanted to kind of maintain the original look while showing a clear difference between the two. My major priority was adding some bulk on her shoulders, which was virtually bare bones in the previous version.

The back.

Her axe is virtually unchanged, though it now has a handle.

The back attachment is less awkward on this version. Well, a bit less awkward.











Staring off dramatically with Pohatu.

Replicating the cover to Contenders #5 with Sohbec.

Toa Cilla vs Gostok Gellesyl!

The Contenders!

Ooops, sorry Cilla!


That's all folks! See you next week!

UPDATE 29/12/15:

I switched out her feet. No really, that's it. It adds on a little extra height and makes the legs look slightly less bulky, as it actually gives her ankles.

Quoting Blackbolt Johnson This guy is awesome. I especially love the forearm construction. I would have never thought of building them that way. Tremendous ingenuity.
Thanks! I'm glad you like the forearms, a design I'm very fond of. Still haven't found a solution for the hordika necks making the wrists look really wierd unfortunately, but yeah. BTW, technically this character is a girl :P thanks again!

Quoting joshua jacobson very cool dude and check the unity infinity circle group.

Quoting Chains Productions Great job man! I quite like her! The legs look really nicely built. I also think the arms do a nice job of getting the job done, but still looking quite eye-pleasing. The torso looks quite nice but the chest piece is a bit low. I also think she could use a touch of femininity, as she doesn't look that much like a female. I think the silver sort of stands out and is a bit iffy also. The axe weapon is cool and the hair is unique. Overall, a very good MOC that has some draw back, but are easily solved.
Thanks Chains! As I explained to Raptor, the chest was originally in the right place, though I had to raise her neck and shoulders in order to maintain the stability of the torso. Unfortunately now I cannot move the armour up without changing the entire build. I did want to make this build more heavyweight than the others, and I don't feel that the bulkyness detracts from her feminimity that much. I did add some things to touch it up however, such as the Nuva torso, which is the reason for the inclusion of the silver. Thanks again man!

Quoting CREATOR (I'm Demontile if you didn't know) Great revamp man. I am glad you are still here, after all this time. You inspired me so much back then. And now I coming back to mocpages, I missed this place, and I missed Bionicles in general. Alot of stuff happened, and it screwed with everything. But after this week (I have camp starting monday, ending thursday/friday) I will start posting mocs again, this time with everything being built from the ground up. Your moc will be the first Self-moc I wil most likely build. Thank you, for continuing Wertman 8. >W<
Hey Demontile, long time no see! good to hear you're coming back, I greatly look forward to new stuff from you!

Quoting Windfall the Wanderer Very nice, as usual. I'm not sure how I feel about the silver, but she looks much more solid and armored, very real, if you know what I mean.
Thanks Windfall! I wanted to use the nuva chest to create that armoured look, hence the inclusion of silver...

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Well, he looks..kinda small. Dorru, and Cilla both are bigger and buffer, so who looked to be the mid-range as far as bulk is concerned, now looks small and weak, especially next to his own ladyfriend.
mm okay, though I'm not planning on revamping him soon. I'll bear it in mind though...

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Oh yeah, the chest armor also seems a bit low. and looking at all the contenders together kinda gives me the impression that Montu needs a revamp.
Yeah, I was thinking that, too. It was originally in the right place, but I had to restructure the torso to give it stability, moving the chest down a tad. Well I wasn't planning on giving him a revamp. Anything particular that bugs you about him?

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ She looks good! My only complaint would be her feet. they are way too big, and the silver color does not do much but overthrow the color balance. Overall, very nice!
Thanks! Yeah they possibly might be a bit too big, though I think it contributes nicely to the bulky aesthetic. I might change them to the white version though.

Quoting ~ Omega ~ I have to say that she looks great. Her proportions and armor work really well with the character. The choice of an axe is intresting and definitely unique as it is not a weapon you frequently see on feMOCs. I really have no complaint about her. What? You want some critique? Okay then, the Faxon is really overused in feMOCs... jk
Thanks! Well, it is the most feminine mask to date :P

Quoting Dragoneye Creations Wow, what a change! Honestly, she used to look very masculine for some reason. But now, she looks like a female Titan from Destiny. And the axe still looks nice. Good job, Werty!
Thanks! I'm assuming her looking like a Titan from Destiny is a good thing :P
