Right, time for something completely different. Praeton was a nod towards the Slizer line, so this is my follow-up, a roborider. I had no idea what to call it, so we'll just call him "Nano" or "Shock" or some other meaningless catchy name.

Also, I've pictured it with Nuara 'cause Takal got the ussanui.

Motocross style (or something like that).

Interceptor mode (is anything in focus? At all?)

Assault mode (slightly better)

Shot of the top side.

The name's Nuara... Toa Nuara (Again with the grainy...)

Size comparison.

Without distractions

The bi-modal thing is operated by the piston - It springs back into shape from two positions. The stand isn't part of it.

I'll try to get better pics.

Niiiiiiiiiiiiice! I love the roboriders refference! The design of the bike is boss, Technic vehicles always are. And "Shock" is really cool. The silver mask of Gali (WHY CAN'T I REMEMBER THE NAME!? AAAAUGH!) really adds a nice metallic touch to the tan toa.

It's great, but are the wheels supposed to be that large? Maybe trying for smaller wheels could be a good idea, but otherwise, I can't find anything else that I can see that has any problem with it. Yes, it's that good.

EDIT: Or on second thought, only the front wheel needs to be smaller, or the one that isn't covered on the sides by the technic armor.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

@ Solek: That's roughly proportional th the size of an old Roborider's wheels, and that's how I want it to look.

@ Comicboy: Thanks. Inspired by your topic, actually. I'm a sucker for subliminal commands. And Nuara's an earlier MOC, posting her or Takal in my pics is what I do. I'll link to her topic when I'm not on a PSP.

That's cool! I like the Roboriders element to it, and tan has always been a favourite colour of mine. The MOC is quite well designed too, good job!

Thanks, King of Nynrah.

Just to point out... Toa Nuara not included. I just needed someone to pose with the bike.
And the current version of her (small upgrades)

Yeah, I've always wanted tan as a primary. It's not particularly workable, but...

And I'm still a little entranced by roboriders, but that's just because I don't have all of them.
