Hope y'all having a good New Year's Eve! I certainly am, as I have a new MOC to show you! For my last post of 2015, I present to you the latest version of the traitorous Solorak!
About this creation
“Today, I’ve undermined everything you achieved back then. And now you know what it’s like to have your best friend turn on you, like you did me!”
-Solorak to Krode, The Contenders #14

Solorak:
Solorak is an upper-class Steltian Dark Hunter, who was formally a member of the Order of Mata Nui. His primary weapon is a herding blade attached to his arm. He was close friends with Krode, but bitterness drove him to betray his friend. Unlike Krode, Solorak is snobby and resentful, pouring disdain upon friend and foe alike. He is fully committed to darkness, pinning a shadow leech onto his collar that is slowly sucking away all of his light and with it any possible guilt.

Solorak was a businessman who lived on Stelt. He noticed the negative association with the upper-class Steltians, and decided that he wanted to break away from the stereotype created by Sidorak, and so migrated to Daxia and joined the Order of Mata Nui. After many years of being a part of this group, he met with a Toa of Fire named Krode, and Order member which he became close friends with, despite Krode's antithetical proletarian attitude. He was sad to part with his friend when Krode was assigned to Racta Magna, but ended up following him a couple of years later, to act as a stand-in leader after Turaga Trokan had died. Krode was irritated with Solorak, criticising his officious approach.

Toa Onika then approached Solorak, warning him about an invasion from the Makuta Sombrak. Solorak, under the false belief that their leader Aroxion was dead, forbade any action. When Makuta Bestox arrived at the city, demanding surrender and threatening the occupation of Nolybas, Solorak called his supposed bluff. This resulted in the city’s fall and the death of an ally named Rugaki, something which both Onika and Krode hold him accountable for. When the Sombrak invaded Racta Major, Solorak confronted Aroxion himself, but was quickly incapacitated. When he awoke, the battle was over and the Sombrak had been defeated. Six Turaga had also emerged to replace Trokan as leaders of Racta Major, and Solorak left the planet.

Solorak felt betrayed by Krode’s scorn, and wanted to get back at him. He left the Order and joined the Dark Hunters and three years later, he was hired by Reshak to act as a spy. He returned to Racta Major and pretended to reconcile with Krode and the Turaga. While in Racta Major, he helped the Contenders to battle many threats such as Doctor Forgen, Kunar and the IRM. After the latter battle he secretly let Reshak and his children into the city for an attack. He accompanied the Contenders for a rematch against Reshak’s allies, and later participated in a second battle with Reshak in Racta Major. He killed Thisrahk, yet also revealed his treachery to Krode by lending Dukrina the key to the Gate. He left the city with Sohbec, another Dark Hunter, and began working for Shadonax. Under this new command, the Hunters attacked the Contenders again, Solorak fighting Krode head on, but retreated once Shadonax was killed.

Solorak stayed with his fellow hunters, Sohbec and Helda, in the arena; he argued with Helda frequently. He tried to take authority, but was undermined by the appearance of ‘Slave Driver’, an old Dark Hunter commander who came to reaffirm his place. The team was then hired by Mordath of the Destroyer’s three to track down Dukrina and Apothrahk, whom they encountered after a few days of searching. They chased them back to the arena, where they found Edoth and his allies, whom they engaged with. After winning the fight, they were approached by Joey Tumbler of the Platonic Justice, who invited them into the movement. Soon after, the Contenders invaded the camp and Solorak helped to fight them; the Hunters soon retreated upon the arrival of the Guardian of the Gate, abandoning Mordath and the Platonic Justice.

In the time following, the Hunters attempted to attack Racta Major multiple times to no success. The city was eventually conquered by a resurrected Shadonax and Aroxion, and a dark shadow was cast over the planet; the Hunters set up residence in the conquered city and Solorak took great satisfaction in the humiliation of Krode, who was left to hang helplessly up above the spot where he guarded. Solorak helped defend Racta Major when the Contenders and company attempted to reclaim the city; he managed to severely destroy the face of Clank, his former ally; Krode responded in kind, using his flame to completely destroy the left side of Solorak’s face. Despite this, he would again aid the Shadebringers in battle, this time against the Champions of Day, a rag-tag army of heroes assembled by Toa Raxonax.

Solorak has retreated back into the city.


Heeeere's Solly! I was definately going for a more rugged and spiky, more 'villainous' look to him this time around. I was also trying to make him appear slimmer, like Sidorak was. I also wanted a better look for the shoulders, and stop the arms from drooping down too low. I think I achieved this with this new version.

Back. Nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done.

His herding blade. Very much a departure from the last version, which was trying to look more like the one Sidorak had. I wanted to use that Phantoka blade, as I liked the idea of electricity flowing through it.

Claw. The fingers of the last version kept falling off if I knocked it, so I wanted a design that was more sturdy. I also wanted those two fingers to look more like the Gali hook pieces. I tried using those original pieces, but as you might imagine, it was way too big.

Head's the same as ever. I like that design too much :P





Firing his herding blade.



Stood with some Skull Warriors.

Very proud of these new shoulder pads. I'm sure some will prefer the Rau's as shoulderpads, but these are so much better to pose with.

Metru Man's back! aaand, he's dead again!

Check out the updates to Montu and Cilla!

My Dark Hunter MOCs all together!

Arch rivals meet once more!

That's all for Solorak

Happy new year everyone! This has been a wonderful year for me, with the return of Bionicle and the success of the Contenders!

Tomorrow I will be ordering all of the Bionicle 2016 sets. I'm going to see if I can afford express delivery, so that they arrive in a few days. If I can, then expect the reviews to commence very soon!

I know I've already said it, but Happy New Year!

Bring on 2016!

wertman 8 due to the mocpages message havent shown in my inbox i made a wikia for the unity infinity circle group since i kinda get impacient with waiting for messages for our conversations we'll try bringing this conversation to our groups wikia if your okay with that?

Quoting joshua jacobson are you saying that you bugged him before?
No. Though he has a lot of excited fans on his page asking him to do stuff and he doesn't need other people's fans asking him to do stuff on top of that.

Quoting joshua jacobson but how about this what if i got a youtube account and ask him for ya and see what he thinks is that good for you?.
Please don't. I don't want Kyler being bugged. You have good intentions but I can't imagine that having any effect, and also it would force me to take Sohbec in a direction I don't want to take him. Please Understand :)

Quoting joshua jacobson but i like the old sobek.
That's fine, I'm glad you do. I just don't want to revert back to that design, as I don't feel that reflects me as a MOCcist.

but i like the old sobek but how about this what if i got a youtube account and ask him for ya and see what he thinks is that good for you?.

you can just try and ask him all you have to do is just say "hi there kylernuva135 i seen your mesak moc and i thought maybe i can make my own version of mesak so i created sobek, he's kinda the same species as mesograk and mesak but i kinda made a new version but a friend of mine asked if i could make a video of how sobek and another of my mocs tyranca met and met again yet he said that he seem to have created their children yet their both tyranca and sobeks kids yet he asked me if i can keep sobeks species name and got worried if you wouldn't aprove but also this friend of mine asked if you could ask theshadowedone1 if its okay for both of you that i can keep the name of sobeks species please?" thats all you have to say im sure they'll understand good luck dude ;) p.s if you like i can ask him for you, if you like and i might let you know what he says or thinks? im just trying to be nice.

Yeah, but I don't want to. Sorry, I would consider it a regression to make him like how he originally was

Quoting joshua jacobson Trust me i know, your both youtubers in fact you can try asking him here https://www.youtube.com/user/KylerNuva135/discussion im sure he'll like the old sobek idea good luck dude. ;)
Sorry, I won't be doing that. I doubt that even if he cared, I doubt he would like me making a MOC that was exactly like his. I imagine it would come off simply as pestering.
  January 7, 2016
you know you can still use the old sobek head im sure kylernuva would love sobek trust me he might even ask shadowedone1 if you can keep his species name virnhaz ? trust me i know, your both youtubers in fact you can try asking him here https://www.youtube.com/user/KylerNuva135/discussion im sure he'll like the old sobek idea good luck dude. ;)

I don't particularly want to, honestly, I like that Sobek/Sohbec has a more original look now. Honestly I doubt KylerNuva would even care, and I changed the species more out of a personal integrety thing rather than a fear of reprocussion.

Quoting Chains Productions Awesome MOC man! I really like how much more sinister he looks now that he has fully gone rogue. The back armouring looks quite nice and looks quite complex. I also like the legs and the use of the Gali Mistika armour. The fingers also work quite well. Also, it goes without saying that the head looks awesome and really nice. The shoulder pads are also a nice addition. I only have two main flaws that is that I think the herding blade and lower left arm looks really out of place and stuck on. The blade is way too long and I don't think should be almost touching the floor. The lower arm piece with the bohrok shield also looks strange. My other complaint is the mesh of too many different textures, such as the grill pieces on the thighs and the technicality of the back compared to the smoothness of the back of the lower leg. Really though, that isn't much of a problem and only affects him the minute amount. Overall, a very good MOC! Great job man!
Thanks for the comment Chains! Yeah, that herding blade is probably a little too long, but I wanted to use that Phantoka piece because of the simulated electricity running through it. Also, I was kind of looking for a more worn, bayformer-esque aesthetic, to show that he's been out in the wilderness for a bit. But still, I see what you mean, and I may even things out over time.

Quoting Puff the Magic Thunderbird I love the progression of this character. However, I feel that the blade is a bit messy. I think that if you replaced the smaller blades on the sides with ones that were even smaller (say, something like http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=57563#T=C) may look better. The blades you're currently using seem to long, and shorter blades may look better. Just a suggestion. Other than that, fantastic work. Oh, and happy New Year! Look forward to seeing more of you in 2016!
Thanks! Yeah, I was considering using those pieces, but decided to go with the Solek swords to create that inward curve. I might retry those other pieces though, see how they look. Happy new Year to you too, Puff!
