Okoto BioContest Round 1: Nui Jaga

Hello readers! As the lazy days of summer come to a close, I’m back with a brand new pair of builds. Here are my entries into round 1 of the Okoto Biocontest, which is taking place over on MOCpages:

The challenge for this round was to “Build a G2[Bionice 2015] Rahi With An Action Feature…” (Rahi were the Toa’s adversaries in the second year of Bionicle.)

I had been planing on building a Bionicle scorpion for quite a while, so I seized this opportunity and built the Nui-Jaga, two scorpion like Rahi:

Each has a tale strike action, similar to the originals:

This allows them to battle, with the objective being to knock the masks off of the opposing scorpion:

I find that the CCBS (Character and Creature Building System) lends it’s self quite well to the look of insect shells:

Each of the scorpion’s bodies houses the workings of the tail strike action feature. This was definitely my favorite part of the build to design. I don’t do much Technic building, so it was quite an enjoyable learning experience for me:

None of the other contestants in my division entered a creation, so I have defaulted to the second (final) round. I’m nearly finished with my round two entry, so it should be up in the next couple of days.

That’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed!
