Emboreyldan, Master of Electricity, Huntmaster . Hey, I'M BACK. Did I leave? No. But I skipped round 4 of the Bio-MOCcing Challenge because I was to incompetent to build a decent Rahi. So I've come back, and what what I certainly think is a BANG. . BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE! WATCH AT LEASE ~60 SECONDS OF THIS CLIP, UNLESS YOU ARE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH STAR WARS: THE CLONE WAR'S EMBO.
The bowcaster seen here is designed to be he Wookie variant. I had no internet to get a reference picture today, and frankly, this came out too well for me to change it. A minor discrepancy.
Also, the bowcaster resides on his back in this shot. A neat little thing I like.
Less obnoxious than the picture makes it seem, this Piraka arm is what is used to attach his sash, which is held to his sides via the small CCBS bones on his abdomen. With the simple removal (one pin) of this Piraka arm structure, his sash can be entirely removed.

With minifig Embo! You know it's why you bought the Bounty Hunter Gunship!
Embo is a Kyuzo bounty hunter from the planet Phatrong. He is based of Kyuzo form Seven Samurai , and as a result holds honor in battle above all else! In battle, when he cornered an opponent, he threw away his bowcaster to fight with honor, hand to hand, and quickly bested him in a fair fist fight (while dodging said opponent's allies laserfire).
Embo uses his bowcaster and armored hat in combat to creatively and uniquely develop an unseen fighting style, combining this with his smarts made him rise to the top of bounty hunter ranks during to the Clone Wars, eventually surpassing even Cad Bane.
Emboreyldan, Huntmaster of the Rangerkiller Rebellion, aids the revived King of the island of Faiklen to in the art of stalking prey so he may bring REGICIDE.
Faiklen's edible fauna consists of dangerous animals, great bears and giant cats and dogs. To feed a rebellion, you need another army. And who better to be that army than Emboreyldan? With his might shock bow, this Master of Electricity takes down the high-ranking Rangers in power of Faiklen.
INSPIRATION AND EXPLANATION
The idea to build a BIONICLE version of Embo stems from Chronos Omega(Chro)'s Endymeron. I saw it and said, "MOC of the year." Unfortunately, That's a 2013 MOC :P
Colors are not accurate, head accuracy was not my focus. Body shape, apparel, bowcaster and color DISTRIBUTION were prioritized. Example, where Embo has green, should here be gold.
Well, there's Emboreyldan. I gave context for Embo and the MOC and how it fits into my own canon. The MOC, though, I want you to tell me about! =)
WELL, that's it for the Bio-MOCcing Challenge 2014 (and partly 15 :P ?). What's next?
