The Final Expedition (I know I spelt it wrong in the title, if anyone feels like fixing it, go right ahead!)

The story behind the final expidition of the Touchino civilization was lost. Not much remains known about it, but it is known that when the final explorer returned, no one was left to great him. It is thought that the explorer was some how caught in time, and spent over 500 years exploring the outside world. While he was gone, it is rumoured that the Touchino had died out. He continued to roam the world, going to new lands and seeing new sights. It is thought by some that he still wanders out there today, holding all the lost Touchino secrets and wonders within him. He is followed by his loyal Torta, and al lthe creatures that were supposed to be lost with the Touchino nation.

The Stone Humming Birds, which used to fly around the Touchino's large mountian cities, have all but disappeared. It is thought that they may ave caught the disease that killed off the Touchino. Myth says that the final Explorer has two Stone Humming birds who follow him to this day.

So be on the look out for the Final Explorer.

The final survivor of an ancient race.

He has stories and wonders for the ready discoverer.

If you should come face to face,

He's tailed by a Torta, a wonderful beast,

one of power and might.

Sit him down, invite him to a feast,

and he'll tell you stories all night.

The stories and myths of old, my dear,

that have been lost to time.

The stories and myths of old, you'll hear,

The stories of the old Touchino regime.

I see you put a lot of work into this. I'm not so sure about the bionicle legs, but everything else and all the nice details look great. :thumbup:

The Torta is awesome.

I love the beetle look with the inverted boats, the radar dish hat and the trans-blue eyes. :thumbup:

Great work with an equally great background story.

I love when MOCs are enhanced by adding a little story and meaning to it :wub:

Quite artistic. Good colors and the models feel fresh and unorthodox :pir-wink: Ah, and the minifig is great - specifically the custom cape :)

Thanks again for the kind words! The cape is not custom, it is simply 3 capes all stacked on top of each otehr and spread out! I'm a purist!

Is there an other themes index? I've just noticed that in Star Wars my stuff is always indexed, but here that's never true.
