Lego Bionicle (first full shot of Kopaka) by Chuckdee Lego Bionicle (first full shot of Kopaka) by Chuckdee
.... and here's the first full-shot of Kopaka.... in my initial layout, the pose was a bit more super-hero-e, but LEGO was pretty strict initially in what a Bionicle could or couldn't so in term of movement, also, since this was my very first time drawing this, I had to get used to a Bionicle's anatomy and figure out what moved where and what the 'movement limitations' were.

This stuff is pretty old and I would do things waaaaay diferent now, BUT I look back at this fondly because I realized these toys were very special to a whole generation.... much like He Man and Transformers were to me and my generation! :)

... I've just gotta say that my entire life I looked up to the art in these comics. I actually still have all my bionicle comic books from back when I first got them with my lego magazines. Believe it or not, the drawings you did for these comics are still some of my all time favorite drawings I have ever seen! Plus I was part of the generation where bionicles were very special. I pretty much got as many as I could. In fact I loved them so much I still have them stored away in my closet. :P

But I digress, haha. I love all the drawings you did for these comics!!! (you don't even understand how much. lol) At least once or twice a year I get out my comics to look at the art. haha. Just thought I'd let you know! :iconthumbsupplz:

Ugh. Bionicles were so awesome. It got harder for me to collect them because my family didn't have the disposable income to spend on every single Bionicle I wanted haha but I'm glad I got all of the original Toa.

I remember these comics and I had no idea that the guy who who drew THOSE comics also was the concept artist for Arkham Asylum. Insane.
Dude seriously. They were QUALITY toys. haha
nice sun i love it

Oh man, I remember that image in the first comic! Such nostalgia! And it's great to see it is actually on DA now! :D
And then Kopa killed them all.

Holy crap, I remember this comic I read as a kid! Amazing to find its artist here. I'd like to personally thank you for contributing to one of the best things about my childhood. :D

Imma dig up the comics from the bowels of my bookcase now.
