MOC: Sorahk

“Sorahk was a custom Bionicle I created for a Glatorian Series contest back in 2008. It combines parts from multiple Bionicle series: the Matoran blue body part, the Phantoka torso, the Skrall shield and Thorax launcher from the Glatorian series, the blue and orange Bohrok eye pieces (and blue Bohrok weapon), the Toa Inika¬†Hahli arms and legs, and the Toa Mahri Nuparu shield with a Toa Mahri Matoro mask.” – Brickster_Tim
