Maokaoma, the Black Castle (for the BCBS October Contest) . Perfect place for Hallowe'en, don't you think? . "I hope we're ready for this. The last Archivist that came down here hasn't spoken a word since. Screams a lot, though."
Whenua to Nuju, BIONICLE Adventures: Trial By Fire
Personality: Always hungry, the Maokaoma waits with tons of patience without moving, trying to look like a cave or a room. When it senses something inside it, the Maokaoma creates arms and other things in order to trap and swallow its preys.
Main Weapon: None.
Secundary Weapon: None.
Theme Song: None.
Character Song: None.
MOC Status: Disassembled.
Note: I suggest you to watch this video for the MOC... If you don't want, at least hear it!
Yup. A castle. A Rahi castle. Great idea, don't you think the same?
Main part: the door... Well, the mouth.
One of the towers.
The upper part of the castle. Let's call it the roof.
An inverted cross. No offense for christians, I only thought it would be a nice touch for a Hallowe'en MOC.
Back of the torso.
Bottom of the Maokaoma.
Side of the MOC.
Back of the MOC.
Well, for the ones who didn't like the cross...
It's reclining. So you don't need to see it, but anyways I didn't take many pictures without it 8D
More poseability? On a castle? Are you kidding? Well...
The merlons are prehensile... On a someway...
Oh, and obviously, the mouth.
It can open.
Did you see the inside structure? Another reason I love this MOC: it uses 9 HF 2.0 torsos and 2 HF 1.0 torsos. ALMOST ALL OF THOSE USELESS PARTS I HAVE.
A picture with these BIONICLE minifigures, for show you the scale of the real Maokaoma comparing it with a Toa.
Whenua: Be careful, Nuju. The Rahi on this room is very dangerous...
Nuju: I'm not sure of what should I think, Whenua. Everything here it's dangerous from your mouth.
Whenua: Because all this level of the Archives is dangerous. But this place... It's worse.
Nuju: Are you sure here's the Great Disk? I mean, we've explored all the...
Maokaoma: GROAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!! ('Shut up and enter here!')
Whenua: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Nuju, we've to...!!
Whenua: ...use our powers in order to...!!
Ejem... Atfer this alternative end of Whenua and Nuju's story, let's keep with the MOC.
The MOC can stand up using his towers. So, if you don't like the idea of the castle, you can think about a dark, two-legged monster.
But I honestly prefer the castle idea. I love this MOC so much... And I have to disasseble it... ToT
Lianyu: Oh hey everyone! I'm supposed to be here for an Inika comparation, but I'm really tired so I decided to get comfortable.
Lianyu: You know, I'm not as good as I want at maths, and this year all my subjects are all about them (all physicians need to know maths, obviously), so I have a lot of work to do...
Lianyu: I spent more than 10 hours everyday for improve my maths skills... That's why I don't have many time for posting MOCs (I've build some of them, don't worry), and also my comic series are in a battle point, so I have to do a lot of images and editing, and...
Lianyu: HOW THE **** DID THIS THING MANAGE TO DO THIS!? AW! PLEASE HELP! THIS HURTS! SOMEONE! S.O.S.! SAVE MEEEEEE!!
Ninja Carrot: No need to fear, my dear comrade! Here is the Ninja Carrot, fighter of justice, love and healthy food!
Lianyu: Oh thanks God! I'm save! Help me, Ninja Carrot!
Did you really need a picture for guess the final of this?
A picture with the other mainly HF-made and black MOC, Neaboros. It's on his 25% Demorian mode (or 50%, who cares) because I need him on this form for the comic.
Neaboros seems to get on well with the Maokaoma...
L.A.: Well, Maokaoma, it's time for us to left! Say goodbye to all this people! That's it, good castle...
L.A.: Wait! No! No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
My second entry for the BCBS! Since I saw the theme for this month, I didn't want to build the classic vampire, death, pumpkin, zomibie or *sigh* slenderman MOC. But, then, what could I build? And, while I was boring on Youtube, I remembered the song you're hearing now (or at lest you were supposed to be hearing): Maou-sama No Uta. Creepy, in a chilidish style, fits Hallowe'en main spirit perfectly. I heard it again, and it gave me the idea of building a castle MOC. Also, I remembered Monster House, my favourite Hallowe'en movie, and the room Rahi that Whenua and Nuju found on the Archives. Destiny was telling me to do this, ladies and gentlemen. And here you have. Oh, the name is from whakaoma, Maori for 'castle', and maou, 'evil king' in Japanese (also it's one of the titles of Satan, that's why the title of the song).
It used almost all my black HF parts I have without use... And some more from other MOCs. So it's a shame, but I have to disassemble it =/ BTW, as you could see, except for the fangs, it's 100% HF. Another example of the epicness you can achieve using only HF (the other one is Sain, the last of my End Knights). Also, I've build a castle without System or Technic parts! C'mon, this deserves a prize! 8D
Well, here is the link to the BCBS group. Wish my luck, guys.
Thanks for passing by! Bye bye, my dears!
