My entry for the Makuta contest going on over at Rebrick. My goal for my entry was to portray Makuta as more of a king or general who commands a shadow army while circling back to the part of the story that was emphasized at the beginning of the new BIONICLE of Makuta and Ekimu being brothers and including parallels to the 2016 version of Ekimu such as a shield that utilizes the same clip system, a staffed weapon, and a similar stature.

The "gold" bits on the knees are homemade stickers to distribute gold lower on the body. To get the color close enough to LEGO's I researched the color codes that Bricklink or other websites documented as the official LEGO color, printed out a sheet of square labels in the color, applied them to the knees, and cut them to fit. Another small thing that I researched was military uniforms and different articles used to denote honors or power, which I worked in with something akin to an Aiguillette, which is a cord worn on ceremonial uniforms.

Nicely done. Is the Mask Of Creation being used as asymmetrical armor, or is it supposed to be hanging there after having acquired it?

The design does make me think of an army general, so I think you pulled that off well.

It's supposed to be hanging there after having acquired it. In the gallery you can see that I attached the mask with a chain about at the back of the waist.

The feet could use a little work (proportions are a bit off), but the armour coverage is 10/10, and dang nab that shield is great.
