Bionicle MOC: Psystrike by Rahiden Bionicle MOC: Psystrike by Rahiden
Psystrike, nicknamed Psy, is a monk with poor eyesight but surprising agility.

While also influenced by the Pokémon Medicham, Psy's design is based (quite suitably) around the Greek letter Psi Ψ. Depending on what you count as a trident, there are about 7 integrated into his appearance. The Fenrakk heads represent baggy sleeves. I admit, the elbows could flow a little more smoothly, but nonetheless he's definitely one of my favourites.

Hope you like him!

All I can say about this creation when I first saw it on my Deviant Watch list was "HOLY CRAP". This creation is just...wow. In the description, Rahiden states that he wanted to base something off the Greek Letter Psi, which is how Psystrike came into being. Considering most creations are based off of an animal, or an element. But not many creations are based upon letters of the alphabet. Now, onto the creation itself!
The first thing that really appealed to me was the head. I loved how he did it - using Nuhrii's mask - blended with red and silver - then using the silver to go into another part of the face was a really good idea. I also like how he used the Skirmix heads - instead of a head itself, they're used for armor. Lastly, the staff...holy crap, that is a big staff (XD). Not only that, but that thing is armored to frikkin' teeth!
Alright, so let me go over on WHY I scored this. As I said earlier, with Rahiden basing the creation off of the Greek letter Psi, this is how vision and originality get maximum scores. Technique gets max scores as well, due to the head design and the creation being so large, yet somehow stays stable. Lastly, impact gets a 4.5. Why? Well, the only people I can think of who will enjoy this include Bionicle nerds like myself, an artist who wants to draw this creation, and someone on DeviantArt surfing the site who stumbles upon it.
In conclusion, this is a really awesome creation! The colors blend really well together, and I wait with baited breath for the next creation!

This is a very interestingly designed MOC.

My only problem with it is those hydraulics connecting his hamstrings to his anchillies tendons, as well as the head, looking kinda.......i dont know, un-headish.

I love the use of the Matoran 2-colour mask, but on the top of his head it looks rather strange, not bad mind you, only out of place.

Anyway good colours, loving the uses of panrahk staff-ends for shoulders and chest. Colours are evenly distributed, and you appear to have even managed to use little to no blue or sand coloured connectors.

Last thing I want to say, #1 the hands, I've never liked the look of clawed fingers, but on this it works. ;) And #2 the weapon.......

The weapon is inspiring, powerful, elegant and perfectly matches his colour scheme. Amazing Bionicle Trident/Spear.

the head looks a bit like iron man! (or the whole thing you could say) like the use of tahu's spinning shield blade

Thanks very much! The top half of the Y shape (I assume you're referring to the red area) is the torso armour of Jaller Mahri. The bottom half is a red Visorak foot.
