Krikuva Mantis [BIONICLE MOC]

Recommended Posts

The Krikuva Mantis is a small, stealthy insect rahi with powerful arms that snatch up prey. They hobble along vines and branches in Le-Wahi's vast jungle, searching for easy prey. Friendly to larger creatures such as matoran, but if threatened, they'll lash out. They shed their armor to brighter colors as they live their lives, from dark greens to vibrant blues or even bright pinks.

Comments and critique welcome. This larger MOC uses parts from pre-2004, some color exceptions were made. The MOC itself has a unique function to bring out it's arms and snatch away masks from Toa and other small objects. This is all done from the back gear. This model was also going to have a function where the elytra in the back unfold as wings, but I felt it would make the MOC rickety and awkward to hold. I do, however, have a MOC coming up that uses the design I intended. Masks are supposed to go over the colored heads for eyes. The masks would be clear-cast resin Rau masks, and with the colored heads, it would look like glossy bug eyes. I hope you enjoy this MOC and the future MOCs I create.

I'm in love with these g1 rahiĀ MOCs. To be completely honest I thought the last one you posted was from the master builder set. Keep up the great work!
