Whoo hoo! Here we go people, the last ever Contenders MOC! We've come so far, folks- and how fitting that it should be my Self MOC, Raxonax- reimagined as a being reunited, at last...!
About this creation
“Hi, my name’s Raxonax: I am a Toa of Gravity, and- I’m whole again.”
-Raxonax, The Contenders #49

Raxonax:
Raxonax is a Toa of Gravity and a member of the Contenders. He is a fierce and brutish fighter, which can serve as both an advantage and a detriment, given the context. Out of battle, he demonstrates a certain quietness, content to quietly observe conversations around him, though he is not above joining in with light humour; with this in mind, he does have a dark side, brought out by his conflict with the malevolent Shadonax, his super-ego, which pushed him to the edge of his sanity; fortunately, in the end, he finally made peace with his inner demons.

Raxonax lived as a Ba-Matoran on Racta Magna, before being abducted by the enigmatic being known as the Jankori, who experimented intensely on him. This caused the Matoran’s mind to split into three: Toa Raxonax, the Ego; Idonax, the Id; Shadonax, the Super-Ego. Each of these creatures went their own separate ways, with Raxonax training to be a Toa in the city of Racta Major. Around this time, he met Toa Galia, with whom he had a temporary flirtation, and Clank, an eccentric robot who remained their friend until the very end. However, it did not take long for the malicious Shadonax to emerge from hiding and harangue the trio. After a few brief encounters, the duo finally clashed, with Raxonax emerging as the victor and Shadonax vanishing into the night.

Though their romantic ventures ended rather quickly, Raxonax and Galia remained fighting partners, with Clank at their side. Together, the three of them moved out of Racta Major and took up a home in a lonely cave in the wastes. Despite moving away, they aided their fellow warriors, the Toa Racta of Racta Major, on a number of excursions; the most prominent of these was in the Toa’s final fight with the Sombrak, a horde of Makuta led by the tyrannical Aroxion, who had attacked the city. Many years later, he and Galia would later be invited to join the Contenders, a new Toa team to replace the retired Toa Racta, alongside Toa Dorru, Montu, Cilla and Takathorax; their first mission was to find Makuta Reshak and stop him from resurrecting the fallen Aroxion.

While the Contenders were thus occupied, Shadonax emerged from hiding once again, roused by a psychic spark between him and Raxonax; he exploited this further, immersing his foe in psychotic visions and driving him to the brink of insanity; this culminated when Raxonax accidentally struck down his ally Cilla, confusing her for Shadonax. Aided by the city’s Turaga, he entered into a meditative state where he confronted Shadonax, arranging a time and place for their final confrontation. After Makuta Reshak was finally defeated, the Contenders confronted Shadonax and his gang in battle. Raxonax ended up slaying his foe, decapitating him at the moment he threatened Galia’s life; this heralded the appearance of Idonax, the final piece of the trinity.

However, unlike Shadonax, Idonax turned out to befriend with the Toa, and they parted in goodwill. Soon after this, the Contenders would get tied up in an affair with the Hero Factory, as they pledged to protect Mary Windbird against a gang of villains, led by the vengeful Dread; the situation would complicate upon learning that Windbird was inadvertently responsible for the genocide of Dread’s people, though the Toa decided to shelter her regardless. It was during a confrontation with one of these villains, Voltwhip, that Raxonax reunited with Idonax, and learned that together they formed a powerful synergy. Idonax returned home with the Toa, but did not participate in the final battle with Dread, in which he was defeated, but at the cost of Windbird’s life.

Sometime later, Raxonax learned that Shadonax had been resurrected by magical means; he set out with Idonax to confront his old foe, only to end up being killed. Following this, Shadonax conquered Racta Major with the help of the similarly resurrected Aroxion. Raxonax would eventually be brought back by Shadonax himself, who proceeded to gloat about his newfound empire. After an attempt to free the city from within, Raxonax escaped and retreated to the realm of Racta Minus, where he assembled a group of rebels to attack the city; while this occurred, he, Idonax and Shadonax prepared for the final confrontation; however, the three of them ended up merging into one being and, with the Contenders’ help, defeated Aroxion and freed Racta Major.

Raxonax left the experience with a sense of wholeness, finally reunited with the other parts of his psyche; he is currently with the Contenders in Racta Magna, recovering from their final clash with Aroxion.


Here we go! The main inspiration for the design I went with was that little Matoran MOC I made for Contenders #38, in addition to Raxonax himself of course- I also decided to add a little extra flare to him as well, given he's the final form and all, hence the prongs on his back and the extra height.

Back; nothing too spicy back here, but it gets the job done!

I should probably point out that with the exception of the skull, this guy is fully custom, feet an all!













Height comparison with Tahu Uniter, 'cause why not?!

The Contenders all together!

With Idonax: the Id, the unconscious, the 'It'.

With Shadonax: the Super-Ego, the conscience, the 'Above I'.

With Raxonax, the Ego, the conscious, the 'I'.

Apart they are flawed, imperfect. Together, they are complete...



...also, Chains Legacy? What's that?



That's all folks! The last Contenders should be out next Friday, but if not, then it'll be out at some point in the week after that. See you then! :D

Thanks Luke, glad you are! Apologies for the delay with the final issue, been a hectic few weeks for me! :D Photos are taken, just need to edit them, so I'd expect it in a week or so from now!

Quoting Ivan Toa of Ingenuity I liek. the purple goes well with the black, nice color blocking as well. The idea that he has two parts or sides to him. The extra height is good, it makes him fell more powerful than his former selves. anyway, that's it from me. P.S. how many hydraxon masks do you have!?
Thanks Ivan! :D Glad you like- I have three Hydraxon masks, one in silver and two in black :P

You've come a long way, Wertman, and you should be proud. Raxonax's latest build is a brilliant mix of sleek and bulky, with an excellent balance of traditional technic parts and CCBS shells. The colour-blocking works wonderfully, and I'm impressed with how you've used the parts that armour his torso. It's great to see how you've progressed, and I look forward to more quality work from you. Also, kudos to keeping Mocpages alive. That said, I have to wonder if you'll be making the move over to Flickr sometime soon, or at least creating a Flickr account to go along with MP.

Great stuff here! Easily one of my favorite mocs and concepts of yours. I'd love to see some kind of psychological horror story involving Rax and his fractured mind. Anywho, amazing work.

Can't believe I forgot to comment on this guy! A fantastic build, and I love all the custom limbs throughout, especially the feet. The colour blocking and armour coverage is great as well! Keep it up!

What can I say, it's one of your MOCs, I'm always impressed! Love to see how far Rax has come, so cool! The build looks great, could maybe use a little more color, though, at least compared to the colors on the original Rax, but that's a small thing. Really amazing!

Quoting High Emperor Duckie Not sold on the back-prongs. If you look at my latest MOC on TTV you'll see why I think it looks too villainous. Great job everywhere else! I like the shoulder pads a lot!
Hahaha, fair enough- could I have a link? :P Just added the prongs for extra flare but yes, I could see why they might look villainous. Thanks man!

Quoting Windfall the Wanderer Truly impressive. I think the shoulders look a bit wonky somehow, but the color distribution works a lot better than one would think. Great concept, great build overall!
Thanks Windfall! Yeah, the arms were a bit of a nightmare to do; maybe I should have flipped the purple armour pieces to make the shoulders look a little better. Glad you like the colour distribution, it was very deliberate to make up for the fact that I don't have many purple parts left :P

Quoting Dark Aeon Very nice. I'm not sold on the forearms, they're a bit too rectangular, but other than that he's beautiful. It's also nice to see that each of the thirds are still built; now I want to see a combiner model for the three :P It's a shame that the Contenders are almost over. It's been an awesome ride seeing everything that you've made, and plenty of your work has been inspiration to keep challenging myself design- and story-wise. I'm looking forward to whatever comes after the Contenders.
Thanks Aeon! Yeah, the shins did end up a little too blocky, though beforehand they looked a little too skinny and bare, so yeah :P Yes, I do have the three of them still around (though Shadonax is borrowing parts from Mordath atm, for I had to take some from him for this.) Dear lord, a combination of the three would look monstrous! :O Thanks for your praise regarding Contenders, and I'm glad to hear that it has inspired you! :D Look forward to the final instalment! :D
