My entry for the Bionicle MOCing Challenge 2014 Round 4
About this creation
A Mantasect (Plural=Mantasect) is a ram/goat like creature that lives on Okoto. Most of them live along the volcanic range of mountains on the island, but some have been known to live in the lower regions. While like the rams and goats of our world, Mantasect have a habit of busting into flames when threatened. While fire doesnít hurt them that bad, they arenít completely fireproof. They will burn in lava and have been known to burn themselves up with their own powers, thus getting the nickname Kamikazes. Though incredibly dangerous when threatened, they are fairly easy to tame. In the wild, their horns can grow half a bio (2.25 feet) in length. The horns also can be very curly, point in one direction, or spiral up. It is a wise idea to trim their horn if you plan on keeping them as a pet.











The Matoran is doomed!




To end, I will say some things I am pleased and displeased with in this moc.
1: I really don't like the fact that all but the head is custom
2:On the other hand, I am pleased with the end result
3: I am NOT happy that I couldn't fit in any eyes or a mouth
4: On the other hand, I think I did a good job on the head

P.S.
The matoran is NOT part of the entry, so judges please be aware. You can comment about him if you like.



Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Mohamed Marei Sorry for having delayed the judging on this one for a bit. Was not really sure how I felt about it, plus been really occupied with university work. Now I do know how I feel about this guy: it's cool, but I would have liked to see some more detail on the beast. Looks fairly simple and "underdone" as compared to your other entries. Having said that, it's still a good MOC, and I think it deserves a 6.5. Best of luck!
Thanks! And I DEFINITELY agree about the need for more detail, but I am horrible at non humanoid rahi.

I like it. Clean, cohesive, and it really does look like a rahi. 7 points.

Looks nice, but the head kind of doesn't make sense. I'll give it a 6. Best luck with the others.

This is fantastic. I just love this. It looks so cool. I don't have a single complaint or nitpick. He reminds me of the Pokemon Terakion for some reason, if you know of him at all. And an epic little Matoran to boot! Best of luck, Sam!

Terrific! I love that hoof design. The head is a bit iffy, but you already addressed that. Love it!

I've only built a Rahi once, but I tore it down. You have any tips for Rahi building?

K. Thanks.

The armor on its legs flows really nicely. I also the overall look of the head complements the moc. But I think that the body seems a bit ignored. Maybe there could have been a little more armor on it. I'll give it a 6. Good luck!

Quoting Dark Aeon Nice, but could use something that goes along with the "burst into flames" idea, such as the printed armor from firelord or some little flame pieces.
While I should do that if they DO burst into flames, they aren't on fire when not in defense mode.

Um, don't. Or just remodel some canon design. If you want advice for rahi, you've got the wrong guy.

Thanks! I'm hoping after this I won't have to build rahi any more. I HATE building rahi!
