Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends...
About this creation
It's been a very long time since this Kanohi has been seen around here. A very long time indeed...
When Bellator, Roatrius, and the handful of other Toa in their group eventually made it to the ruins of the Mata Nui Robot's Codrex core, they found there a barely running stasis pod containing a maskless figure.
Design documents found in other Great Being sites eventually revealed that this was Kromastus, a prototype stored about the MNR as one of a number of backup systems. The intention of the Great beings had been to have a judge-like figure, or arbiter, to resolve civil crises that might have emerged in Matoran society. Unfinished, he was stored aboard the Robot with no release condition, and he was ultimately forgotten. His intended weapon and mask were stored in the Codrex, but were lost when the Robot was destroyed.
The Toa and Glatorian took him from the MNR and gave him a replacement Kanohi.
He is capable of hurling small energy bolts as projectiles, and has a limited ability to regenerate his armour, though this causes him physical stress. He is also protected by a shield similar to that projected by a Kanohi Hau, however it is of limited strength, and will collapse under strain.

Very cool! I must have been thinking of this moc when I revamped my own SM because it reminds me so much of him. Love your style! You should also post that green toa, his torso looks interesting.
I really should look at finishing my Toa of Air there

How have I never seen your stuff before? This is incredible!
Edit: Wait I have seen your stuff! You're back!
I'm only sort of back - MOCpages remains a rather difficult site to use, and compared to Flickr (better for photos) and Bionicle Maskposting on Facebook (lively community), it just doesn't have the same level of appeal.
That said, I'm glad you like Kromastus, and I'm trying to keep these pages as up to date as I can.
