MFP Axel Erate

Anyone remember these? No?

NAME: Axel Erate
AGE: ????? 
BACKGROUND: Axel Erate is a Xalaxian. Therefore, he has a love for three things. farting, racing, and farting. He heard about an intergalactic race. Unfortunately, halfway through the race, he crashed into a Blacktron racer, and was imprisoned by the Blacktrons. He wasn't incarcerated for long, however as Doctor Winks found about him. He released him from prison, under the condition that he join the newly formed special ops team Fleebnork Extermination, Zeta squad, or FEZ. An excellent pilot, his talents were put to use
BEHIND THE SCENES: This guy is one of the 14 members of FEZ, who I will be spotlighting on Fridays (I'm a day late this time...), as their storyline in my comic will be focusing on their past. FEZ is full of various forms of minifigs (Duplo, Homemaker, techinc, etc.)I custom made. This guy was on of the easiest, though Sharpying his arms wasn't too easy. You can check out the Comic here, Updates Fridays!
ACQUIRED: Bricklink, 2013.

When worlds collide

Little known fact #1: I like Bionicle

Little known fact #2: The title is very punny if you know the Bionicle story.

So here is what happens when I build my self-MOC. Bionicle and Blacktron (Plus Pirate! And Star Wars!)

Little known fact #3: This is the first, and maybe the last, MOC I have ever built that could be on all three of the blogs that I have (This one, my defunct Pirate on, and the Bionicle one I share with my brother.
I am really happy with how the head turned out.

This isn't the first Blacktron Bionicle I have built. Kotonn here was first. He is part of FEZ. Remember that? Yeah, it's still a thing, Updates Fridays.

Step 1: Grab a boat hull

David Alexander Smith gives us this delightful info on how to use old ship hulls.

To sum it up, boat hull + Blacktron = instant awesome

Super Nova 100

Every year, at this time, a great contest rolls around. That contest is SHIPtember. This year, I built an Iceplanet SHIP, but I also built a Blacktron 2 SHIP (Shocking, I know)

This is, to my count, my ninth Blacktron 3 SHIP, but this one is unique. This one is piloted by a single being, and that being is a Bionicle.

Introducing the Super Nova 100

Yeah, it's a giant Super Nova 2. But imagine yourself as a M-tron, flying your Stellar Recon Voyager. you see up ahead a Super Nova. You feel you can easily take on this lonely little fighter. And then it gets closer. Bigger. Mightier. and Then you, as a little M-tron, realize how foolish your plan was.

I mean, look at the size of that thing!
