The Makuta That Would Have Been
Posted by Richard on August 4, 2016 at 11:16 AM CST:
JrMasterModelBuilder is currently attending Brickfair Virginia, where one of the BIONICLE® Set Designers has brought in the Makuta set that would have accompanied the G2 BIONICLE series, minus the Mask Of Ultimate Power. Unfortunately the G2 series has been canceled, presumably along with the new mask, but JMMB kindly provided these pictures. I have more details in the full story.

MOC'a'THON: Flying Assault Unit
Posted by Richard on July 18, 2016 at 10:38 AM CST:
You can see this "flying" creation and it's features in actionon this YouTube video. It is a flying assault machine based on the Nui Rama, which was developed by one of the tribes fighting for dominance on a particular island. The wars taking place in this land are part of a giant war game, which was started to strengthen the residents in the event of another invasion.

Vahkiti And Temporal Cruiser
Posted by Richard on July 13, 2016 at 10:33 PM CST:
Vahkiti volunteered pictures of his self MOC, accompanied by the Temporal Cruiser, a vehicle styled after the Ussanui. I find it amazing how he managed to capture the style of the vehicle it was based on, while making something that was clearly different. The vehicle was long ago dismantled, and only a few small pictures remain of it. In the main article I've left the pictures at their full size since they fit the page well without having to use smaller thumbnails.
