Here we go again! After some more great feedback i have made some more changes to the king of Zola Island. First off, i ditched the sheild (most people weren't fans of it so...POOF... it's gone). Secondly, i shortened the staff by four inches, it is now twenty inches long. And to finish off i added more armor just about everywhere. Oh, and slightly changed the feet. So, i hope you like the newest version and if you see something that still needs tweaking, let me know. Also if anyone knows of a really strong joint i can use for the hips and shoulders i would really appreciate it if you shared such wisdom. Right now his hips and shoulders are fairly weak and i want to swap them for something a bit stronger.
About this creation
Here is a close up of his head and upper body. There isn't really anything new here except for a couple pieces i added to his shoulders.
Here is his hips. I added some armor on his thighs and gave him a fresh jock strap. XD
Here is his feet. Not too much of a change here either.
Here is a side shot.
Here is his back.
Here is the back of his hips. Again, just a couple new plates of armor here and there.
Here is the back of his feet. This was hard to improve on because half of the people that commented liked the talons/toes on his heels and the other half didn't like them. So, i kept the talons (i personally like them) and added an extension onto his foot so the toes would look more like a part of his foot, rather than separate limbs.
Very nice moc! He's very detailed, sturdy, and has an epic weapon. If you make a fourth version I would bulk up the shoulder armor so it protrudes upwards a little more, bring back a larger shield (preferably same general style as V2), and lengthen the thighs. It would also be cool if you could take a comparison shot showing Titan Mata Nui and Zolmium.
Quoting Dave and John Xandegar
You're going to be one of Johnny's heroes! This is excellent...we'll have to catch up on some of your other stuff when we can. John's been prodding Dad to build a big Bionicle...so I told him to fish a dozen Technics 15 bars out of his vast Bionicle stash & we'll get Old Dad started! I may have to lean on You, Yuri, and a few other Bionicle Masters for inspiration (wish me luck!), OK? Zolmium is truly a majestic piece...maginificent! D&J:)
Thank you! Good luck! I can't wait to see what you guys can do with bionicles! If it's anything like your other mocs, it will be one of the best bionicles on mocpages!
I like it
