Article with the MOC can be found here.
Any questions for the set design, or comments are welcome. Id also like to encourage people to post some of their own favorite MOCs, since Id like to try and get mmore of your MOCs posted on the front page.

Dude, your MOC is freakin awesome! When I saw that at first, 1 or 2 days ago, I thought , "wow! who is that titian?" Its pretty neat how you took worthless pieces, like matoran torsos to give him bulk instead of pure technic beams/bars. You have tons of white pieces, thats epic! Since for me, I can't create a very large creation because I don't own a hundred of the same colored piece to create something as epic as that!
How long did it take you to build it Admin? That must'ev taken you about 5 to 7 hours right?
Anyway, good job! Two thumbs up and a pile of candy! Thats how good it is!
For me, I'm going to scavenge around in my bionicle collection to build something epic too. But I am thinking of building a rahi.

I cant really remember how long it took me, with most of my MOCs I build the basic body, and a week or a month later when I get an idea or just want to poke at it until I can fix something that bugs me, I start working on it again.

Hmm, for me, I can't build a part of the body, then take a break from it. Lol, I build all the way till I'm done building my creation. Then after I'm done, I take a break. Then some other day, I modify or make some finishing touches on my creation. Thats why I am so edgy posting my MOCs. I want to make sure I officially 100% done building that creation. One time I stayed up 4:00 AM, because once I"m hooked in building, I never stop till I finish it. :)

If only time didnt go so fast when Im trying to work, Id have more creations ready. Normaly I dont make an unfinished MOC. I tend to finish small MOCS and have arms, legs, etc. and then revamp the limbs later. My biggest MOC however, Biodroid Gamma v2 (I kept the head from v1 and tore down the rest) for the majority of the time I worked on him, he was just a half a torso with one arm sitting on a half opened droor of parts like the termator that got hit with the compactor. I piled a few hours every night a week before brickfair with trial and error to get him ready.
EDIT: I found a mistake I made during contruction, his pistons are facing the same direction in the picture talking about them. I fixed the pistons but Im suprised I never spotted it before. Along with fixing the pistons Ive rebuild the chains so they are out of the way of the shoulders on the pistons, and I can now snap off the chains without pulling them apart, making them more like an accessory than a built in component. Im still experimenting but Im also trying to make the silver armor on the left shoulder look like a communication array. At the moment I have a walkie talkie part plugged into it (Giving the silver thing a small antanae), but Ive also got some white antanaes I can use there...I may have to post some updated pictures.

While roaming around MoD. I checkout your Biodroid Gamma v2. Thats super big. I find it suprizing that you have so much bionicle pieces to create that. I can't imagine how a couple of heavy plastic...*Jeeze Wow* he stands up! Thats pretty cool. Dang, I couldn't even do that even if I tried.. :P I think my largest creation was "Creature Iden". But I did not have enough pieces to create bulk to him. I posted my large creation on Maj, till it got deleted somehow. Well at least I still have him in LEGO.com, on my Stealthy-Matoro account. :)

If it makes you feel better, Im not confident in how his legs attach to his torso. He sorta just rests on the top of the two legs that he is tethered to. Im trying tofix that now though.
