Bohrok. A legion of insectiod machines carrying dangerous masks programed to protect the island of Mata Nui at all costs. Apparently "protect" and "eliminate inhabitants" are one in the same.

Looks like a case of Starcraft's Zerg race stuffed with cybernetics, I like it. As a fan of Bionicle straight from its very beginning back in 2001, my favorite antagonists have to be the Bohrok, that swarm mentality that they have is worthy of some praise on the writer's part.


It's amazing how that toy based world that started as an excuse plot turned into one of the most interesting stories I've ever seen, it's simply amazing.

Awesome pic, but that description bothers me: the Bohrok did the opposite of what you say, they destroyed Mata Nui and didn't bother with the inhabitants

Wow. I love the stylized work you put into this. Heh. I even adore the different shields you put in the foreground. but i don't see the ice shield anywhere. I wish I had more of these. except now i can't buy them due to stupid line discontinuation and HERO F*CKING FAGTORY!!!!!!
SuperCJ's avatar
You wouldn't be able to buy them after all the sets they sent to stores were bought... it has nothing to do with the discontinuation nor HF.

Then Lego should make more sets to be bought. Not ditch the line.

ice shield has the unfortunate position of "behind the flame"

Oh those Bohrok. Who'd thought they were actually Dead Av-Matoran...?

I always wanted to have like, an army of these guys, but in the end, never even bought one. I deeply regret that decision.

Yeah, they were pretty sweet army builders...
I had one of each Bohrok and Bohrok-Kal, but had none of the Bohrk-Va.

I had... borrowed my friend's black bohrok for about a week. It turned out to be my favorite.

Its always the ones you don't own that end up being the coolest; my friend had Likhan... i was eternally jealous

I missed out on a lot of the mid stuff too. Gave up on the toys after metru, then came back into it during Glatorian. THAT MUCH. I regret not buying Titan Mistika Takanuva when I had the chance. (the rest of the Mistika Toa? Not so much)

i had mistika gali, and she was alright; i use her mask for myinterpretation of toa tuyet.

I dunno. I didn't really like thier colors too much. Tahu got metru red'd, everybody got greyed out, Pohatu turned orange, Lewa became light green, Kopaka's eye was on the wrong side, etc. etc. The only one I dug was Takanuva, who, aside from the black parts, looks extremely similar to his original self.

Very good details and shading as per usual. I like the crazy eyes you gave it, and how you can see the krana in it. However, the angles of the body don't quite match, it looks like he's stretching. Otherwise... very good. The claws are a bit narrow on the example ones, but otherwise nothing stands out to me. It's very good, and I like how you made it's exo-skeleton look like a cross between a vertebrate and an insect.
