Bionicle MOC: The Innenrrad by 3rdeye88 Bionicle MOC: The Innenrrad by 3rdeye88
About the MOC
I first built the Innenrrad back in September of 2011. It has remained unchanged until now(June 9th, 2013).
I worked on the MOC to address the structural and functional issues it had at the front end, as well as redesign the aesthetics of that area. The new features include:
  • overall better looking front end

  • stabler construction

  • Front wheel no longer rubs against the cannon arms(midak skyblasters) when turning

  • smoother rolling front wheel

  • improved kickstand for added stability

The Innenrrad as a MOC sports many realistic functions and details.
  • handlebar steering

  • Front and rear suspension

  • adjustable seat

  • cannon arms that swing out and actually fire

  • lowerable kickstand

  • realistic details that include

    • Headlights

    • tail lights

    • and rotated Hero Factory core "I" badges

Both the adjustable seat and the cannon arms work by rotating axles that have Gear screws connected to gears to produce movement. The steering system is liftarm based and employes the Towball system to work in tandem with the rear suspension system causing the handlebars to pivot vertically. This all allows the Innerrad to have a Steering+suspension system.

Background Image. I do not claim any credit for this work, all credit goes to :iconjoshushund:
Credit must also be given to :iconalex-darkrai: who helped me decide the name of this MOC. "Innenrrad" is an amalgamation of two German words, "innen" which means "inner, internal, or "inside," and "motorrad" which is German for "motorcycle" to create "innercycle" so to speak.

Youtube video of me explaining the innenrrad's features and functions. The video is from when I first made the Innenrrad so please keep in mind that it is the previous version. ^^;

The innenrrad was first a prototype vehicle built by Kumignasi as a vehicle specialized for long treks across the Bara Magnan deserts. The prototype was destroyed in a bad crash that almost killed Kumignasi and left him permanently disfigured. The prototype had gone to full testing phases and while he was recovering the Innenrrad was put into full production as a vehicle that could be purchased or won in gladiatorial matches. The first production model built was given to Kumi, which he traded to Melanthios who is now primary pilot and owner of it.

The innenrrad is a very fast but not very agile vehicle, its turning radius is rather large, making it difficult to maneuver in tight winding areas. It is best suited for relatively flat open land where it can reach its high speeds and have plenty of room to maneuver. It also sports an array of weaponry for fending off hostiles out in the vicious deserts of Bara Magna. The primary "light weapon" is the dual fusion blasters located towards the front of the vehicle, these blasters are situated low to the ground as to target opposing vehicle's wheels tracks or legs.
The secondary "heavy" weapon consists of dual extendable cannon arms. When retracted the arms act as armoring for the main body of the innenrrad. When extended the cannons are armed and can be fired. The does leave the innenrrad more susceptible to damage. With the awesome firepower tucked away in those cannons, the enemy usually busy running away rather than attacking. The cannon arms can also be detached or ejected from the cockpit if damaged, or if a quicker get away is required. Some drivers like to experiment with different armaments in place of the cannon arms which come stock, often having many different "load in's" for different situations or tasks. These usually range from additional rapid fire weapons, variants of heavy artillery, flame throwers, mine droppers or simply additional armoring to keep the vehicle light while protecting the engine compartments. Melanthios in particular keeps his model stock as he doesn't possess much skill in mechanics.
As well as being adequately armed Innenrrads are sturdily built to take a beating. They can handle mild to moderately high jumps and in extreme cases can withstand landings from larger heights but the odds of the vehicle remaining functional drastically decrease. The Innenrrad also features a compartmentalized engine that operates both the front and rear wheel while having smaller engines in each wheel as redundancies to prevent complete immobilization from engine failure. These additional engines also come online when the vehicle reaches higher speeds to assist in high speed performance. They will power off when the Innenrrad is slowed down to conserve fuel cell depletion.

Now, let's see. This here is a MOC that goes in a whole different direction to the majority, and it does so with flying colours (or at least, colours of grey, orange and brown).

Functions! That is the thing that sets the Innenrrad apart from most. By all means, 3rdeye88 has gone all-out with the blighters: everything from adjustable seats to functional steering to (my personal favourite) retractable cannons. Most vehicles have some sort of working bonus, but 3rdeye88 has gone the extra mile, cementing him the 5 Stars in Technique.

While I can't pinpoint anything wrong with its appearance, it does seem that the general 'flow' is almost there. Some areas are beautifully done (the curve along the back wheel in particular) and yet there are others which distort the flow, such as how the Antroz blades don't match with the front wheel. Nevertheless, the vision as a whole is aesthetically pleasing - especially when you notice how the Hero Cores spell out the letter I!

Overall, the Innenrrad is certainly a step in the right direction for Technic-influenced functional vehicles.

dude, where did u get those wheels? What lego has such big "circles"?
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
They're only available in This Star Wars set.
RadutheMC Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
ow that set is awesome, like yours!
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. :D I got it just for the wheels. The brown parts were a plus to, but I was after those wheels. This is a bit of a hard set to get cause its old now, and still sought after for its parts. So sometimes it can go for a bit of money.

Dude, this is awesome! You gotta post building instructions for it!
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you. But no that's not gonna happen. I don't post instructions. I've done it once with a simpler MOC and even that was a pain in the butt. Besides, most people don't have all the parts I used on a given MOC, if they do, they can make their own version(after the let me know they're going to and give me credit for the original), or try to build their own original creations.

Instructions are just all around bad for business. They stifle people's originality and creativity, and in a sentimental way, devalues the original creator's MOC because now he's not the only one with that MOC.

I see where you're comin' from; I suppose it would be kinda frustrating to have your own creation become someone else's. Still, though, this is a badass vehicle. Take pride in it, my friend.
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah that would kinda suck. Plus, and this is the big issue, you have any idea how much work it would be to take apart and photograph a MOC of this size, then put it back together again? Nooooo thank you! :faint:

Well thanks for the compliment.
