Posted by Purple_Dave on May 12, 2002 at 08:32 PM CST:


This is easily the smallest BIONICLE™ MOC that I've ever built, and very likely the smallest one I've ever seen. I got the basic body design from just tinkering around with a NUHVOK VA brainpan and eyes, but I liked the idea of doing it in red a lot better. After that it was simply a matter of figuring out which KRANA looked best to give it a little bulk. I went with the JA for a couple of reasons. It's the fattest KRANA of the bunch, which means it does a lot better job of filling out the body, and the two central grooves kind of lend a look of beetle wings to it. And I call it the PAHUNU Fire Beetle.



So anyways, the PAHUNU is pretty small compared to most RAHI, and being bitten by one is not lethal, so a single beetle isn't much of a threat, even to a MATORAN. However, it does have a somewhat toxic bite which will usually result in some rather painful swelling (hence the name), so it's not a good idea to let them get too near you without having some way of defending yourself. The main threat comes from the fact that, like the fireant, they tend to travel in small groups and attack very aggresively. Even a well-armed MATORAN is in a lot of danger if he stumbles across more than two of them at the same time.
