Bionicle MOC: Rhotuka Tiger Rahi by 3rdeye88

The rating system is better for paintings/drawings but not so much for Lego. Impact and technique are useful but vision and originality...

Miqo'te by retinence
Miqo'te

Miqo'te is a race in Final Fantasy XIV. At least I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong. This is a commission, so I only saw the character model.

I started this model by following Lego Dou Moko's (www.flickr.com/photos/legodoum… character builds, then I branched off to make it my own way. This took a while to make as I had to learn a lot of new ways to build. I used a small technic skeleton to hold it together. Other than that, mostly everything is system parts.

I have another Final Fantasy MOC that goes with this but it's not finished yet. It will be finished by Brickfair NJ in November.

This is my second build using a few of the new bionicle parts. This was just a quick mock-up to use the large white weapon parts.

About 2 months ago I learned of the return of Bionicle, and was lucky enough to have LEGO send me a selection of the new parts to play around with before the unveiling at New York Comic Con.

Bionicle Bird Thing by retinence
Bionicle Bird Thing

About 2 months ago I learned of the return of Bionicle, and was lucky enough to have LEGO send me a selection of the new parts to play around with before the unveiling at New York Comic Con. So, I tested out the versatility of the parts they sent me to see what the parts can do outside of the intended purpose. This model came together as I figured out possible techniques. I never gave it a name, just called it a weird bird.

 

If you haven't seen the new models, you should check them out: www.lego.com/en-us/bionicle

I'm in love with your work, you make great use of Bionicle and Technic :) Love how you've made the characters flow, like they've been captured in motion. Great stuff.

I have a question for you... Would you be willing to give constructive criticism on my MOC?

No.  I'm too harsh and your skill isn't high enough yet.  Other builders would be better suited to give you the constructive criticism you're looking for.

who do you recommend I ask? 3rdeye88 said it wasnt GOOD, but the fact that i'm repurposing parts and using them as something they arent intended to be used for is a step in the right direction.
