    I loved Encline's Nemesis Prime. It just oozed evil, so I decided to give my hand a try at one. While digging through my bash box, I ran across a Bionicle set I had bought a few years ago, and was reminded of dyingwill3rd's cool looking Roller that had a lot of Bionicle pieces.

    With that as inspiration, I tried to make this Nemy look corroded, oily and worn out, but still an evil looking bastard. I painted him directly in really hot sunlight (any one who's been to Phoenix can tell you what hot weather really is :D ), which filled in the sanding I did with a gritty texture. A lil bit of detailing and weathering later, here he is.

    The blade, cannon and cord all came from that old Bionicle set. The cannon attaches with a rare earth magnet to the shoulder, in alt or bot mode, and the blade fits neatly under the trailer/ax housing. I also swapped his feet. I kinda like the pigeon toed look, and it makes him easier to balance. I hit has face with some future for an oily look, same for the shine on the "glowing" parts of his blade.

    I may tone the face down lil, it's a bit too shiny. Thanks to Encline and Dyingwill3rd for the inspiration. If you wanna see more, head HERE. Enjoy!

    I don't think its too shiny, not at all. Interesting technique. I like the purple face under the mask, with it up at least. hehehe

    That looks sweet man! I dig the texture you added. The silver fingers on sort of a black glove is a good contrast IMO. The gun and sword are just the icing on the cake. He's looking pretty bad ass

    On second look I'm getting 3 character vibes in one from him. Purple face says BW Megatron, orange on the sword say the Fallen and obviously the colors are Nemesis Prime. Really great job

    Thanks, big homie. I had to hit it with a coat or 2 of Game's Workshop Chaos Black to get the tone even, but the gritty texture really works for me. I may keep this one, man. :thumbs2:

    Oh yeah!!!! This is so sick. I have always thought of Nemesis as more of an organic/robotic creature. The texture gives it that heavy, rough metal feel. The weapons are great!! I never thought of adding a blade to the axe.. nice. But one thing, where are the lights?

    By the way bro, you have a lot of stuff going on too, huh. HAHA.. WE jobless!!!!

    Oh MAN!!! I just noticed you removed the lights!!!!! That looks so much cooler. Can I use that idea?

    That's kinda what I was thinking with the sword, kinda Fallen furnace. I went for a yellow sludge wash over the orange. Glad you dig it!

    I'd like to see that man. Hurry it up! We're both out of work, so I know you have free time!! :D 

    Sanding off those extra light bars was fairly simple. Go for it!

    Yeah. being a lil nuts finally pays off. :crazy: 

    And knowing is half the battle...G.I. Jose'!! (Sorry, to much Family Guy)

    Thanks, bro. If yall dig it, then I know I done good! Feel free to hit me with a PM before he goes the way of eBay.

    Now I can focus on Cyclonus...and one other bash...:confused2

    This looks awesome. I'm not usually a fan of "Nemesis" repaints, but this one really brings in a lot of different elements. Kudos.

    Nice one; the gritty texture looks odd, but really works. And while the purple face reminded Lucs of BW Megatron, I straight away saw Motormaster under that mask... ;) 

    Heh, yeah; I know what you mean. A little tip for the meantime... glow-in-the-dark paint... ;)

    Me usually, bro. But I figured if I was gonna do one, I'd try to make it unique. Thanks!


    No prob. You never know which way inspiration will come from.

    Ah ha!! That's the name of him. Do you know if they are still on store shelves..i'd be happy to grab one more for $5 bucks!

    LOL! I better get to it. This one really lives up to your latin tag line, huh?

    Um, Jaller Mahri, is the red bionicle sets, and hes being clearanced at some places. Toys R Us is still at full price for $10, Target may or may not be on clearance, and I'm not sure bout Wal Mart. If theres a Tuesday Morning near you, they have them near me for like 7, or check other discount stores (tjmax...marshals..etc). Hes an awesome set
