you guys certainly have a knack for building beautiful creatures and this one is no exception!

Is it fully pose able?

I've already commented on Flickr and CC but this totally deserves another comment!
Every time I look at it I see another cool detail, the space parts on the bottom of the Fox's neck stood out to me this time  :thumbup:

*oh2* wow this fox is filled with NPU from the Toa Mata eyes (Do you build Bionicle), the islander fan hair piece, and lots of pieces I can't name. Even though its pink it somehow looks badass.
Edit: I just saw minifig legs, kopaka phantoka's armor, and what looks to be a train piece on the neck.

It's a beauty again! I really like the tails although you've used that technic allready. And as always there is a load of great parts usage like the bionicle parts used for the feet and the minifigs legs in the legs and so on! :thumbup:

You've certainly kicked off entries for the contests with a bang!   :laugh:

This is certainly a fiesta of pink, and the combination of shades of pink with white on a black background is dramatic and quite lovely.  It makes me think of the Final Fantasy series quite a bit.

Aside from the colours, this is an ingenious and inventive use of LEGO parts to create a really magical creature.  :thumbup:

Thanks! His limbs are all posable, they cannot rotate outward, but all 'bicycle' motion is possible.

Thanks a ton, we dont build often with just bionicle, but we often (especially in creatures) use bionicle elements to augment or give strength. So not really, but all the time lol.

The tail specifically can easily droop. the individual curves are perfectly posable but it's maybe 3 studs too long or 2 plates too narrow at the tail base to fully be 'posable'. But the technique is typically very strong. This one just needs to be slightly more balance or the tail will fall slightly horizontal (which honestly is ok.. just wanted it to fit into a 32x32) And we ran out of 1x2 pink plates lol. ;P

Loads of clever parts usage here - love the tail technique, and that's a LOT of trans-pink studs!  This gets votes from me...

*oh2*

As a huge fan of Okami, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I adore this thing.
The flame-like aesthetic of the tails, the usage of the S6 Space Girl's torso for the eyes, the way you've used pink elements without it ending up looking gaudy or excessive; everything is simply beautiful. :cry_happy:
In fact, I almost feel ashamed to be in it's presence, and I'm only looking at a computer screen! :grin:
