The design of Mahri Nui


This was a dream come true to design. I love the underwater setting so getting to create something from scratch was great. The broken off piece that make up Mahri Nui was impaled into the sea bed and the Matoran that were captured down her build a village for themselves. They lived inside bobbles of air which the harvested from the giant seaplants growing down here. Air was their most valuable treasure because it kept them safe and kept them away from the corrosive saltwater and the monsters of the pit.

    1. I think most of the BIONICLE fans are interested. XD

      Mahri Nui is an epic location. It has that mysterious feel that the older BIONICLE years had.
