Well, I hadn't built anything Bionicle-like in forever, and when I dug out a bunch of the old parts while I was working on some other new models, I thought I would challenge myself to do it. The result was this boxing robot.

And from the back, now.

And in action.

And for all those wondering, and even for those who aren't, I'm really proud of that head. It's probably the best bit of snotage I've ever done, even if it is tiny. Here's a breakdown.

Nice, I like the colours on this one. And the use of those bionicle masks as boxing gloves is a clever idea

Those gloves are actually shoulderpads, but whatever. Glad you liked it.

My Bionicle challenges yours to a bout of fisticuffs at dawn. Do you accept?!

I managed to fix the images. I have no clue how they got messed up.

So this robot was sitting in bits in my scraps pile, and I was feeling kind of sorry for having to dismantle one of my cooler creations. at the time I was almost finished with a newer robot, which was nicely constructed, but a bit bland. I finally decided to both breathe new life into the old boxer and improve my newer project by combining the two! The end result is shown here.

Although it loses some of the sweet looks & articulation of its older body, the heavier system integration makes it fit in much better with the TwinSword model.

But that doesn't mean they have to get along, however...
