The Minotaur Devastation Engine is a walking scrap tank. It was created by the vengeful Ko-Matoran named Keros from various protodermic metal shards, weapons, servos, and more, found in the Fe-Rela scrapyards. This chaotic invention is a dangerous opponent, towering over most Toa, even standing over Astrav in his titan Kaita form. However, the MDE itself is not the only thing to watch out for- its wily pilot is not afraid to fight you on his own. And he's got a few tricks up his metaphorical sleeves...
According to my intel, some unknown thing has been on a rampage around here for the past week.
Yeah, we're still not sure what it is.
By the way, ERAD, do you know what -
Oh son of a CRUNCH
Seven point nine nine nine nine nine nine
FACEOFF: ASTRAV vs KEROS
What... who the hell are you?
My name is Keros. I am the creator of the Minotaur Devastation Engine. And by my rage you will be destroyed!

Ouch, my head...
That'll teach you to mess with a Kaita.
Now I'll take you back to my superiors to face your justice.
Alright, I'll take my chances with "justice"...
But first there's something you should know.
Just because you're a Toa... do not
underestimate a Matoran!
Dammit, he got away...

This was an interesting one. I sat for about a week with no inspiration and no inclination to build. Then I took a look at round two, and got a sudden idea. How better to convey the idea of a machine than to build... another mech? This time a chaotic overarmored-and-overarmed evil-looking one, rather than something akin to the REDBOSS mech. I think it turned out pretty well. Maybe not enough to beat Infernum, though.
This is more posable than it looks, but there weren't many poses for me to put it in that could be photographed easily or looked great.
Good luck to Phos, DC, and Infy.
