An elephant I made after wanting to use Kiina's mask as something that's not a mask.

You actually did a pretty good at making a good-looking elephant, out of all things, in BIONICLE pieces!

I haven't many ideas what else to say about it, though. I did notice it's a blue BIONICLE moc, so it would fit perfectly in any water area in the BIONICLE stories. A water elephant Rahi would be quite inventive in my opinion.

The creative style's kinda cool as well. Nice use of the mask there!

And the originality of the creation in general... that's kind of self-explanatory.

All in all, a very good BIONICLE moc. I'd probably buy it if were a real BIONICLE set!

I love the stubby feet in front, the back legs are OK, I like them because they suggest thighs. I like look of it having one eye. I love how you utilized the mask for perfect shape. I like the simplicity and complication of this MOC. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> I know you don't do tutorials, but this would be great for any lego zoo or savannah. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> ;D <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Great job!

What do you think when you hear the word "elephant"? Grey? Large? Africa? Rahiden though it was blue. Hey, creativity is pretty nice. Again, small creations and hulking masterpieces are up Rahiden's alley, so let's get started!

- First of all, it looks cute for an elephant. I mean, it's a little scaled down version of one. Why? The entire thing could probably get squashed by an elephant. But again, ingenuity for the win, as I don't think Kiina's mask has been used in this manner.

Not much to be said. Either that or I've run out of things to say. So explain my scoring, vision got 5. Why? Well I like how he strayed from the typical gray hulking monster elephant to cute, wouldn't-hurt-a-fly creature. Originality also gets 5, not only for that reason but for seeing a completely unique creation. Technique gets 5, as the skill here obviously had to be high if he could get something so small to look so well-rounded. Impact gets 4.5, as I could see drawings of this being made, and not just lego-style!

Lastly, I want to crown the Ninja Elephant award to this moc for appearing so well-hidden in many of Rahiden's Hero Faffory comics!

Not much to say here but that's not because of it's design (which is great) it's just the simplicity leaves little to be said.
It's a nice, sturdy little moc which may look simple enough but I know that little mocs can take ages to get the design right.
It's great that you managed to include little tusks and the Kiina ask works great for the trunk here.
I can't give full points as it's, well, an elephant but I can clearly see how there is a decent amount of thought gone into this little guy and that where everyone tries to make large, lego elephants of great complexity, you have definatley succeeded with this cute little Bionicle one. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Can I rate it?

A rather cute setup.
Evaron's avatar
that's brilliant
DeviantArtistMax's avatar
I am sure you get bothered by these types of comments however do you bother having instructions for your small mocs?
I checked the review but Id like to replicate the design true to the original. Unless you don't do them so people wont steal your designs then I understand.
Rahiden's avatar
Yeah, I don't do instructions, sorry - partly because they take ages, and partly because (as you said) I've had stuff plagiarised before, so I'd rather not just give it away.
DeviantArtistMax's avatar
Unfortunate its like that but alas, Ill do my own elephant because I really like this little guy and its design too much.
