Jeremy Beckett from our sister site rebelscum.com informs me of a huge fan event Biosector01 hosted, called 810NICLE Day. While the events have already run their course, you can still click on the schedule page's events to see some of the things the community did for the new AFOL holiday. They have plans for more events in October, although those have not been worked out yet. Forum link.
MOCs: Terraria Molten Armor Posted by Richard on July 27, 2019 at 09:51 PM CST:
When the makers of Terraria hosted their "Dont Throw Out My LEGOs" contest, I wanted to give it a shot. This MOC is the result. It features a terrarian wearing the molten armor set, molten pickaxe, flame wings, and a grappling hook. Just click the thumbnails for the high resolution pictures. The middle picture is using a light brick in an attempt to give the armor it's trademark glow. Forum link.
MOCs: Hexadecimal Mantis' All Transparent Toa Posted by Richard on July 9, 2019 at 09:48 PM CST:
I've wanted to make an all transparent MOC for some time but never could work one out. Hexadecimal Mantis on the other hand made this creation as an experiment, and was kind enough to upload some photos for us before scraping it. On a side note, look carefully at the mask and the hands. Though they are official parts, Hex' tells me he experimented with dying the pieces. I can't argue with the results. Forum link.

I took photographs and video of the creations at BrickUniverse Raleigh last week. While I work on finding a good way to upload the pictures, I have some video of the event uploaded to youtube. Click the article tittle to see the list.
MOC: Sealed Makuta Posted by Richard on March 8, 2019 at 09:19 PM CST:
Following in the traditions of the product container being used as a building element, I wanted to make use of a BIONICLE Part Tub. I wanted to make a Makuta character trapped in a protodermis cell. I originally envisioned the container just sitting in a technic base with spikes reaching up to grab the sides of the container, but I realized the CCBS pieces could be used to convert the whole container into a fairly solid building platform for this and other ideas. I plan to make a more menacing Makuta to fit inside, but for now I've just stuffed my MNOGKuta inside. There's not muck to say design wise, it's two rings of 14 CCBS arms, with bars of CCBS arms every other arm on the two rings, forming 7 bars. I decided to capitalize on this to represent the 6 original toa plus takanuva's colors on the "bars". If some of the spots seem bare, I am currently short on some CCBS shells. Forum link.
