    I honestly don't know what to call him yet, its basically a mashup of the following-
    -Cybertron Galvatron
    -Geewun Galvatron
    -Tahu Nuva (the Toa of Fire for those Bionicle-deprived among us)
    I'll have to apologize for the crap quality of these pictures, as they were carelessly rushed. . .

    Yes, he's been scrapped in favor of better things, he turned out better than I had hoped for, but I'm still not all impressed with what I did here :/

    Heh, this guy's central construction is actually very similar to Lewa's (and Lewa Nuva's for that matter), in the fact that its built around the infamous Toa torso part. MOCers usually try to avoid it b/c its seen as "cheap, blocky and lazy" But I figure if its built around properly its a good solid start to any MOC.

    That's pretty kewl. Never tried making mine into TF characters before, might give it a shot on one.
    I love Bionicles, even their parts can be useful for improvements on other toys.
    Used some bionicle parts for Armorhides trailer arm

    I wasn't actually aiming to make it a cannon like Geewun Galvy, it just kinda happened by accident, b/c I was having issues with getting even a decent jet mode out of the guy.

    I'd LIKE to get into bionicle, but I can't figure out where to start.

    Bah!

    I've already got one midlife toy obsession, I don't need another.

    Heh, you're telling me. This summer is looking to be one of the best in Bionicle history, combine that with all the TF merchandise we'll be seeing this summer. I'll probably need to sell a kidney or something and still be able to get some of the stuff I want.
