Hi there Mocers, I thought I'd change the format of how I write about my bionicle mocs, lets see how this goes!
The tale of Toa luminos begins in an an unknown facility; an industrious dystopia; an unknown island; an unknown universe.
a rag-tag team led By this universes toa of fire plot to build the ultimate weapon against the oppressive dictatorship of the tyrannical kopaka. A mask. A mask of ultimate power, sealing the pure absolute power of fire inside a layer of mystical gold.
A simple slave, lumen sat in infuriating impatience and anticipation as the mask was finally cast. it was done, lumen watched eagerly as the toa lifted the mask to his face. Abruptly an loud bang thundered the factory, the toa dropped the mask, a shadowy silhouette walked towards them, only the toa bore any weapons but in the thunderous thunder of the explosion, the toa had dropped his weapons too.
the toa reached the mask dodging a heavy blast of energy cast from the silhouettes pistol, another blast was cast, heading to the still massless toa; Bravely lumen blocked the hit with his body, the power sending him hurtling into the Magma of the smelting pool. Lumen was no more.
The shadowy figure strolled slowly by the toa with maniacal slowness. a final shot this time to the toa's leg left him crawling away desperately. He could not let this mask into the wrong hands!
In a final heroic act, the toa of fire tossed the mask into the smelting pool, giving slight yet sure sliver of hope to the resistance forces. Angrily the shadowy figure blast the toa through the chest, the blast illuminating his clear monical eye. Finally with failure to retrieve the mask, the assassin retreated back into the shadows. Unknowing of the events occurring in the smelting pool.
The masks mystical gold sealant had been stripped in the high heat of the molten metal, it's untamed elemental energy finding a new form. It's new form taking the half smelted remains of lumen, filling his gaping chest and semi molten limbs with pure elemental energy. Thus giving birth to Luminos, Toa of Magma!
The figure was mostly built around the light brick, however keeping sleek enough to seem heroic. The other reason the build looks this way is because quite a while ago I had attempted the same thing, since I thought it would be cool if you could illuminate the mask, then it was to no great avail of course but I succeeded this attempt. Moreover, the sword was not a complex build either, basically I crammed as many fire pieces into those cog holes as possible and it turned out looking great! The shoulder armour is also an original design that I've been wanting to use!
As you may see the chest and mask light up, this is done simply by pushing up on that red bit at the back. You can also store the sword on the clip, I took a picture which looked really cool but it went corrupt :(
That's all Folkes, hoped you enjoyed the story, for more in relation to it check out my previous bionicle build! PLEASE leave your thoughts as a comment and like!
