Character Mix-Ups 4: Self-MOCs . Some self-MOCs of great builders, portrayed in Mix-Up format. . First of all, for those who donít know, Character Mix-Ups are a genre of my own invention. They are characters rebuilt like a set from a different period. The body uses the same framework as an official Lego Bionicle set from that time, but with the head, color scheme and major characteristics of the character. The trick in building them is to get the perfect balance between the customization often necessary to maintain the character and the simplicity and type of parts found in that type of Bionicle set. Thus, these creations are not high effort, nor highly custom. They are, however, extremely fun builds, and can be easy or difficult depending on the availability of certain parts in certain colors, and the type of body the character originally had.
Here are Character Mix-Ups one, two, and three, as well as Gringatís take on the theme, if you want to see more.
These mix-ups are different than the others, in that the characters arenít official Bionicle ones. I made them as a tribute to some of the great Bio-MOCers on the Ďpages. Here they are, along with a link to the original self-MOC. Wow... This is going to be more linking than I ever expected to do...

There are several people I wanted to make but couldnít do to lack of parts. Sorry. I plan to take self-MOC requests and make this a regular thing if there's enough interest. Please do not make requests here, though. I will be posting my mask collection shortly, and, if I have the mask your self-MOC needs, you can ask for me to make yours there.
Please feel free to make your own mix-ups! Just be sure to give credit to me for the idea, and leave a comment here with a link to your mix-up page.
I hope you liked these, particularly the ones whose self-MOCs I stole. Feel free to rate and leave comments and suggestions! Thanks for takin to time to look over this page!
