I'm a bit rusty with filling the gaps, but I figured I would throw this up here to show that I also do conversions and combinations as well as paint jobs. I really love painting those lenses.
Don't know if it was intentional, but the paint in the corner between the lens module and the mask surface looks like welding seams. Awesome work.
lol I remember when I got a version of that mask from you at brickfair
Now this is the one I mean! I love what you did here with the visor. Do you have any idea which masks would also fit?
Nicely done, dude! You did an excellent job on the lenses, and the wires are a great touch.
The glue line kinda looks like a welding seam. Replacing the lenses with translucent pieces is also a cool effect but in this case I like your paint job more. Very steampunk.
The lenses are also hand painted, no gloss or glass. The "glue" is actually a sculpting material I used to fill the gaps but botched a bit. That shouldn't happen anymore since I got a fine sanding bit for my dremel.
i just hadthe same idea that u just did. This is really cool
That's an awesome idea. I agree with the gap-filling needing a bit more polish, but other than that it's a great execution of an amazing concept. If you do more in the future, please upload them for the viewing pleasure of, well, this guy. (Had to work some ego in somewhere.)
Daaamn)) It looks great! I've thought countless of times, that Onua with his underground-action needed such device!
And it really suits' em ! Nice)
And it really suits' em ! Nice)
Bionicles! Zomg, so cool!
Nice job with the glue. There's still some residue but it's not too bad. Great paint job too. You also got onto the front page.
It's actually a sculpting medium called green stuff that I used to fill the gaps between the masks. I'm hoping to get some actual sculpting tools soon so I can create seamless joins in the future.
The hose was an excellent touch. Bravo.
i love bionicles and this is just awesome. seriously awesome
Omg bionicle ;A;; And woww nice job at combining Kopaka and Onua's mask together! It looks really fluid and not like just two pieces stuff together. O:
Absolutely amazing. I would have loved one of those in a mask pack.
Aw, that's pretty metal gear!
I recognized this before I even clicked on this.
No...what have you done! Onua and Kopaka together...their power's ambition shall not know BOUNDS!
Now he can see you through the wall and punch through it to get to you!
This reminds me of the Cybermen from Dr. Who. I like it.
How did you ever put Kopaka's X-Ray eyes on Onua's mask?
I used a cutting bit on a dremel to get a clean cut, then I just glued them together and used a bit of green stuff (it's a bit like clay) to fill in the gaps.
he cut off the akaku's scope piece and glued it on the pakari or something like that
is that onuas mask and mataron matoro pieced together?
woohhoo steam punk onua!! XD
Badass. Excellent Job.
I wish it was an offical piece of lego.
I miss these so much.
Yeah, I wish they hadn't gotten rid of Bionicle.
Note how in 2001 they were amazing. In 2010 they lost that lore aspect to it. If they kept it hero factory would have still existed. But it would have had bionicles name.i dont want to sound like an ass but bionicle ended where it should have.
me too man, me too.
