Lehvak by Lol-Pretzel Lehvak by Lol-Pretzel
Built for the 2012 Bio-Cup Eliminatories on MOCpages. Lehvak is a BIONICLE set from 2002 and here it's revamped into a bigger, meaner form with gnashing jaws, acid blasters and spearguns. Sadly, it won't fold into a ball though.

Highly inspired by the bohrok artwork by :iconvrahno:

This is the best Bionicle I have ever seen, I swear.
It's simply incredible and amazing. Man, I wish I had all those pieces so I could build it.

I am subscribing to you, I need inspiration XDD

WHY IS THE LEGO COMPANY NOT FUNDING THIS!?

This was by far my favorite Bohrok, and now you've made him flawless...

Why not just make this a Baterra?

2 reasons:

First, the Bio-Cup 2012 contest called for a revamp of an official set. I picked a random part from my parts bins (Lehvak's faceplate) and stuck with it.

Second, I don't see the Baterra as having designated elemental types. If I build a Baterra, I'd probably make it silver all over.

Because it seems to resemble a Baterra more than a Bohrok, seeing that one was inspired by the other.

I don't follow. I should try making Lehvak again because this MOC supposedly resembles a baterra?

If and when I do build, I'm usually working on OCs or self-MOCs belonging to other people.

What I'm recommending is that you change this one's color and make it an "offical" Baterra. IF you feel up to it.

I'd consider it if this MOC wasn't built almost 2 years ago! It's long since been taken apart and recycled.

Now this is what I imagined an Elite/Combat Bohrok would look like.
Also, love the head design, really beast-like and those four eyes, instant like.

you know a good back story for this guy would be that he was the only bohrok that wasnt put back to sleep and reprogrammed and wound up either falling into a pool of energized protodermis or mutagen which changed him into well.... that. augmented physical capabilities, as well as intelligence, and added a new weapon. costing its ability to chang into a sphere in exchange for more power. plus seeing how this bohrok has a krana bo it can see in the dark so late night activeness could be another part of it

Aye, but this was made for the entry round for a contest and I only had a week to make it. All I needed was an adequate build to get in, though I definitely would have tried to make it fold up if I had more time. I've made a few MOCs in the past that could.

Sorry to be the wet blanket here and have an unpopular opinion, but I hate this thing. It looks terrible IMO. Every which way I look at this it looks awkward and bloby. Its a good MOC in terms of parts usage and arrangement, but as a Bohrok Revamp, it doesn't capture the Bohrok essence to me. Revamps are a tricky thing. They've gotta further and advance the build, but hold true to the original, kinda like a band covering someone else's song. This is all just my opinion of course, but I think you were way off the mark from this one. Overall it looks way too cluttered and misshapened.

You might think differently if you compare this to Vrahno's illustrations, and the contest's prime objective; to create a gritty, darkened revamp. It's meant to look a lot meaner than the actual sets, which truth be told I didn't like too much. That said, colour distribution is the MOC's failing point. That's been mentioned before on MOCpages. That's what I get for rushing towards the end I guess. ^^;

I've seen Vrahno's illustrations. He does brilliant work reimaginig the Bohrok and other Bionicle creatures and characters. I watch him here on DA. I think even if you were basing this off of his grittier interpretations you could have gone about certain things differently. The fangs should remain white, unless you're making the Kal's The head could have been bigger, not an easy thing I understand but you're up to the task. then there's the fact that its still very cluttered. To me, grittier means bigger, edgier, meaner looking, but still retaining key characteristics of the original set. I've only ever done one revamp, my Onua Inika, so give this as much validity as you feel that's worth, but when you do a revamp there's just certain things you should stay true to and I just don't feel you stayed true to them here.

Oh, I didn't read any of the comments. I looked at the pictures then commented here, since DA doesn't make you fill out three government forms and file for a passport just to leave a comment. :P
