Hey there, I'm here to present a MOC I've finally took the time to take decent pictures of, Fali'Ven. Click on the picture to access the gallery ! Fali'ven is an adventurer in the Neverscape era of Universcape, a french Fan Universe created by Loserkiller. While at a certain point of his life he explored dungeons with a fellow explorer from the same race, he's now working alone. This character doesn't have any specific powers, and only rely on his agility and his fighting skills to survive the many traps and ennemies that awaits anyone who dare enter the different sacred places hidden and scattered in Universcape. The basis of this design is, as most of you may have noticed, the blue Vahki, Bordakh. I wanted it to have a G1 feel, and had to have elements from the original Vahki, but designed as a hero/adventurer, so with tweaked proportions and armor. The blades were an afterthought, as I had them lying on my desk, since I didn't use them on my rework of Chi Panthar, and they just looked perfect with this MOC. The actual backstory of this guy is taken back from 2004, when the Vahki actually came out. My friend found them pretty early and knowing that I was waiting eagerly for Bordakh to come out, bought it and offered it to me as a gift. Fast forward several months, we were playing with several Bionicle figures, in an universe similar to the one from The Legend of Zelda, where my Bordakh, wearing the King Mathias cape, was a hero who needed to defeat the evil gan... Ultimate Dume. I remember having fun with him for several hours and this is still to this day one of the fondest memories of us that I have. While he left us several years ago, the idea of remaking this character never left me and I finally had the inspiration I needed last august, for the result you can see here. As always, comments and criticism is welcome !
I've finally decided to part ways with Bionicle (sorry Constraction Forum!!!). Maybe I'll get back into it if we ever get a G3, but for now, I'm selling all of my G1 sets. Will sell only as a lot via eBay. I am very open to offers, so don't let that price discourage you. Just be fair - there's a ton here! Contacting me via eBay is the best way to make an offer or to ask a question. Feel free to ask! Read the full description on eBay. More pictures on eBay as well.
Vahki were the mechanical law enforcers designed by Nuparu that kept order in the more dystopian times in the city of Metru Nui. Making Onu-Metru their home and the Great Archives their domain, Rorzakhs used their Staves of Presence to spy on the Matoran suspects, routing out illegal trade hubs and Matoran Underworld hideouts. Stalking the ramparts and scaffolds of ta-Metru, Nuurakhs used their Staves of Command, forcing the Ta-Matoran to turn their undivided attention to the work at hand, sometimes to the point of complete exhaustion. Overseeing the district from the rooftops of the crystalline spires of Ko-Metru, the Keerakhs ensured peace by using their Staves of Confusion, making any troublemakers lose their sense of time and space long enough for Vahki to apprehend them. Stalking the canals of Ga-Metru, the Bordakhs used their Staves of Loyalty to make the Matoran delinquents willingly hand over their accomplices and reveal the locations of hidden Matoran Underworld hideouts. Stomping the badlands of Po-Metru, the Zadakhs employed their Staves of Suggestion to soften up the minds of even the most rock-hard stubborn Po-Matoran. Watching over the hubs of Le-Metru, Vorzakhs possessed Staves of Erasing. Considered the most terrifying of all Vahki Staff powers, Staff of Erasing was capable of temporarily stripping the target of any higher mental functioning, leaving them shambling along the streets of Le-Metru without a thought or reason. This was a huge undertaking. It took me a lot of time, energy and motivation to not only put the staves together, but also pose the models in an appealing way, as well as create interesting backgrounds/scenes to put them in. For me as a content creator this set of models is a bit of a milestone as I have started to employ heavily the vector graphics using Adobe Photoshop. Vectors are hella fun but also a handful! I am glad I am doing them though. With some of those I struggled a lot, and in these moments I received help from my spouse Demitsorou who is an amazing artist and you totally should check them out. I've no idea where to go from here, but I guess up is a good direction?.. Anyway, thank you for reading this and checking out my newest creations. <3
Surrender or run! Hello, guys! I'd like to join to the "Metru Nui patrol" party on Flickr with my revamp of one cool black policeman. This is my dark Sci-Fi version of my first BIONICLE set) I know that robots doesn't have tongues, but... c'mon. It's Biological Chronicles. Why Nuparu can't build a partly organic monster with long tongue like Venom or Alien?) And yeah, it can transform into spider like original set. But in this mode its insectoid back looks strange... I hope you like this! Good luck and please, don't break the law)
