Toa Goalikath(BcBS round 2 . This, is what happens when you're too big to stay one... . Hello everyone, please make yourselves up for one heck of a lengthy post. Please enjoy it!!
One long time ago, there was a legendary Toa. This Toa had the element of Dissolving and his ability was splitting everything in mulitple components. The name of this very Toa was Goalikath, for his giant size. One day, in a battle that involved a dangerous Makuta experiment that had broken loose, Goalikath accidentally splitted himself into three new beings, all of whom had some of his characterisitcs. These new, individual beings worked together as a team, and sometimes Goalikath was still formed. As these beinfs were quite happy with their individualities, they chose to only fuse if the situation ever called for it...
The first member of this group is Jax.
Nicknames: The Sniper, skater, the silent hunter.
Element: None, Dissolving when combined.
Personality: Quiet, accurate and fiercly loyal to Kanja Ryu and Glahrohk.
Jax is the silent one in this group. He talk very rarely. His speciality is longranged combat and therefore, he carries around a giant sniper cannon. He also comes equipped with two blades, but he can only defend himself with those. Jax reprsents the loyal, calm and accurate side of Goalikath.
Now, onto ze moc. Pics speak for themselves as usual.
Nicknames: Wisecracker, Four legs
Personality: A true nerd. He loves all kinds of trivia and little, intricate mechanisms. Will get very mad if you touch or break something that he posesses.
Glahrohk was formed when Goalikath spilt himself apart. He is the smartest of his team and he is therefore the leader. Glahrohk can be very annoying at times and despite his intelligence, he can still be rash and impatient. Glahrohk represents the curious, intelligent, but also the aggresive side of Goalikath. He fights furiously in close combat, with quick leaps from his four legs and wild slashes from his blades.
Nicknames: Wall of Goalikath, dummy.
Personality: Calm and easygoing.
Gorbash is mute. He has adequate intelligence, but he cannot speak at all. With his big claws, he cannot write anything down either, so he just does what he's best at: Being a literal wall on the battlefield. Gorbash provides cover, mainly for Jax, against ranged attacks. Gorbash is very peace-loving and therefore, he won't attack anyone unless either Jax, Gahdrohk or anyone else he is allied with happens to be in danger.
Species: Titan Toa
Nicknames: Huge brother, the one man army
Personality: Goalikath was a giant Toa with fearsome looks, but he was known to have a heart of gold. He was a serious being who could be maddened only by seeing the beings around him get hurt.
The Fourth Wall:
So, still hanging on after all of this? If you did, I'm very proud of you and Goalikath will kindly give you a hug for reading this far. Now, as this design was a true braincracker that left me with no parts at all to make a new moc without demoloshing this giant, we have alot to cover.
Jax was where it all started. I wanted to make a sniper-moc with alot of poseability and he needed to have roller feet. He was built around a triplejointed (!) body, with the addition of doublejointed arms, and thriple-jointed legs. The lower leg design was partially taken from Felix the Cat, so cheers to him.
After finishing the moc though, I began fiddling around with him alot and I noticed he could be folded into something that resembled a body, so I began modding him and perparing him for this.
The other two components, Glahrohk and Gorbash, where made in the two weeks after that and they're horrible mocs on their own. Their only purpose is being parts for Goalikath. I did this because of a severe lack of parts. Despite this, I still think they both look pretty cool.
So, once again i'm entering a moc in the BCBS that actually was never meant for this theme, but I made a story around it to still fit in. I realize some may think of this as a dirty way of entering, but I personally think it's creative writing. If this is frwoned upon by many though, I'll consider removing the entry.
Anyways, this has been one heck of a loong and tiring post. Hope you all enjoyed the moc, and I see you next time!

Also, on a completely unrelated note: Thank you, everybody who voted for Jabberwock in the first round. I'm very proud of this achievement, and I hope to make it even further up this time. Cheers!
