After hours of faffing about with Java and my new computer, I've finally managed to bring to you another MOC! The second in a very specific series of MOCs, may I present to you the one, the only- Jenna Arrowhead, bigger and badder than before!
About this creation
“You fancy wrestling a bit with the mighty Jenna Arrowhead?”
-Arrowhead to Krode, The Contenders #20.

Jenna Arrowhead:

Jenna Arrowhead is a powerful and experienced member of the Hero Factory, the leader of her own Hero Team; despite this experience, she of a young age for a hero. Tough and vivacious, Arrowhead serves as a fairly effective heavyweight Hero, though with enough cunning and intelligence to make a good leader. Jenna is strong and assertive, though also fairly reasonable and well humoured.


Arrowhead was built at the same time as the likes of Furno, Surge and Breez. Despite the nonchalantness she projected, Arrowhead was dedicated to her training, and thus excelled in it, balancing strength and discipline like no other Hero. She graduated quickly and soared through the ranks, until at one point she was made the leader of her own team, who helped during the “Ordeal of Fire” and “Savage Planet” Missions. During the latter mission, the team lost one of it’s members, Joey Tumbler, who was accidentally left behind on the planet Quatros. Tumbler himself became a villain and had to be arrested by another of Arrowhead’s team, Sanah Torch.

During the Hero Factory Breakout, she was assigned to track down an environmental terrorist named Bipotron. After much searching, she found and fought Bipotron to a standstill. However, she sympathised with his cause, to defend the natural world from corporations, and so he managed to convince her to let him go. She instantly regretted this, and so when they next met, she turned him in. Bipotron was released along with two other villains four years later by a mysterious villain named Dread, who was seeking to kill another Hero, Mary Windbird. Arrowhead took what remained of her team (Cliff Scaler and Torch), and set off to follow the villains; their journey took them to the planet Racta Magna, and a city of Matoran named Racta Major. It was here that they met Windbird and another Hero, Jack Lupus, and explained to her about the threat that Dread posed.

This turned out to be well timed, as Dread arrived the following day with an ultimatum to the city; to hand over Windbird or be crushed. In response, a debate was held regarding this, one in which Arrowhead participated in Windbird’s favour. The city eventually rejected the ultimatum, and braced themselves for the oncoming invasion; when it came, Arrowhead teamed up with Scaler to fight Bipotron. Though they were repelled, Dread planted dissent by revealing that Mary was responsible for the genocide of his species, the Gomorrans. Though this at first caused doubts, the heroes reluctantly decided to continue helping Windbird. They and the city’s protectors, a Toa team named the Contenders, split into small groups and went after each individual villain: she paired with Toa Galia and went after Bipotron, a tussle which resulted in the villain’s apparent demise.

However, they were unaware that Bipotron had actually survived the ordeal, only to discover this when Dread’s gang arrived at Racta Major once again. The Contenders and the heroes fought them off, but not before they claimed the life of Jack Lupus. The group then responded with a counter attack on Dread’s gang and its allies; the allies were eventually dispersed, but Dread’s gang refused to go down; the ensuing battle resulted in the deaths of Dread’s cohorts, leaving only the leader himself. They prepared to arrest him, but Windbird gave her life up to Dread nonetheless, in a wave of guilt; Dread himself soon passed from his injuries, leaving the remaining heroes to return to their home in Makuhero City, but not before Arrowhead gave Galia a datapad with which to call them in an emergency.

The heroes then campaigned for the Gomorran Genocide to be officially recognised, upgrading to XL form to publicise this. However, they were soon summoned back to Racta Magna following a distress call from their old friend Galia of the Contenders; their planet had been taken over by villains known as the Shadebringers, casting the rock into perpetual night. Arrowhead’s team arrived on the planet, meeting up with fellow Contender Raxonax and a collective of others who had not yet been imprisoned. Together they formed the Champions of Day and set out to win back the city of Racta Major; things seemed hopeful as they quickly clawed their way to the city doors.

Arrowhead and the rest are currently on Racta Magna, helping the Contenders to retake their city.


Here she is! Unlike most XL builds, Jenna is comparatively quite skinny, by design- she is much taller, however, as you shall see in upcoming size comparisons. The shoulderpads were also used to emphasise her XL-ness.

The Back, for shoots and giggles.















Height comparison with Toa Tahu, the Uniter of Fire!

Facing up to the Guardian of the Gate, as a reference to Contenders #26! :3

Arrowhead vs Depravitie!

Jenna Arrowhead and Toa Galia- partners for life!

That's all, folks!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR PEOPLE WITH UPLOADER TROUBLE:
Are you having trouble with the uploader? Adding MOCpages to Java's exception list not doing anything for you? Fear not! I think I may have the solution:

Java's latest version has two security options: 'very high' and 'high'- neither of these allow MOCpages' uploader to work, because it does not trust the site's certificate.

There was a 'medium' option, which did allow the uploader to run, but this was unfortunately patched out of Java in Version 8, update 20.

The Solution? download any version older than Version 8 Update 20!

A website named 'Oracle' archives previous versions of Java to redownload- you can get a version of Java 7 here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html

Your computer will probably fight you throughout the download, sending up "a newer version of Java is available" messages constantly, but you just have to ignore them.

Once it's done, go into Java's security settings and change it to 'medium'- (this will downgrade your security quite a bit, so I would suggest changing the settings back every time you go to a legitimately dodgey site, just in case)

This should allow you to use the uploader- when you click it, it'll send up a dialogue box asking "do you want to run this application?" to which you tick the "I accept the risks..." box and then click run. You may get another Java update dialogue, to which you click "later", and then it should let you through after that.

I really hope this helps- I know people have been struggling a long time with this, but I think I may have found the crux of the problem and it's solution- this worked for me, but if it doesn't for you, then I sincerely apologise- This is based solely on my own experience.





Enough of that! GOODBYE!


UPDATE 30/12/16:

Due to viewer feedback, I lengthened and bulked out her mace. I agree with you guys; I think I like this better- it befits the bulk of the character a lot more.

I also added one of those extended perpendicular connector pieces to each of her armpits, to bulk out the torso a little bit. A minor touch, but I really like it.

Quoting Mister Birdie This looks really nice. I like the color scheme of this and it is an all around nice build. The only nitpick I have is that the chest armor piece on the lower legs makes the legs look too bulky. Aside from that, the build is great. -MisterBirdie
Thanks man! I'm glad you like it! Hmmm, yes, it's possible that they are too bulky, though I kinda wanted them to be bulky so that they balance out with the bulky shoulderplates. I'll see what I can do though :P

Quoting Toa Jaton @ Wertman:I thought that would be worth sharing,sense that at least seems to work for me.
Yes, thank you- your advice was pertinent and important, I should have mentioned it- I was just assuming everyone already knew about that.

Quoting Toa Jaton Great MOC! If I may add,I have another option for getting past Java.You can still have the latest version and put the security on 'high',but there is a link on Java security you can click to get you to an exception list where you can copy and paste MOCpages' URL into it.I hope that made sense to you.
Thanks man! Yes, I was aware of the exception list, but that doesn't always work for everyone- like, for me yesterday, when trying to upload these photos :P This is for when the exception list doesn't work :P

Quoting Blizzard - Ha! Couldn't help but grin at seeing this! You did quite well making the moc svelte, but not practically anorexic in some places like the HF XL models. *Glares at Furno XL*
Thanks Blizzard! :D Yes, I was worried about how slim she looked, considering that most XL builds are typically quite bulky- even if sets like Furno XL have very spindly legs. :P

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Nice! I actually think the club is proportionally fine, it's just that almost all Bionicle weapons were exaggeratedly big (and continue to be in MOCs) for cool factor. I think that one's size is refreshing. Also, I don't know about that Uploader stuff, but from what I've gathered, only Chrome has troubles Java, Firefox is the browser I use exclusively for MOCPages uploading and has never failed me. So that's worth a try for those encountering issues, I'd say.
Thanks Sean! I see where you're coming from with the weapon- I'm not one for giant manga swords either, though I agree with Raptor that the club could stand to be at least a little longer. In regards to the uploader thing, I also exclusively used Firefox on my old computer- on my new computer, Java wouldn't run MOCpages on Safari or Firefox- I think it was Java itself that was the problem...

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Looks good! my only gripe would be the weapon, seeing as it looks just a tad small compared to the rest of her. And thanks for the uploader help, I will have to try that out.
Thanks Raptor! yeah, I may update the club when I get back home at Christmas- I hope the uploader works out for you man! :)
