It's been awhile since I uploaded something here, to make up for it, I upload a whole team. Awesome, isn't it?
About this creation
Before you ask: No, these guys were NOT inspired by the firefighting theme of the new HF sets. I build them that autumn, some time after Optimus.
I've actually only make these guys because I want to make something with all these keetorange parts I've got. To be honest, I'm not really fond of keetorange. And since I'm not really good at building titans, I decide to build a whole team out of the keetorange and combine it with another colour I also have in tons and which works well - mostly red, with a little bit orange here and there.
It was more or less the first time that I built an entire team around one specific theme, but I'm afraid I don't have enough parts to build another teams (I'd love to build some sort of a Ice or Water Team). Oh well.
Anyway, it's time to take a look at the team members, right?
This guy is a pretty straight-forward Inika-Build (well, like almost all members of the team). The only thing that could be might worth mentioning would be his proportions, which are pretty human-like.
This guy uses lots of red. In terms of design of colour scheme, he's probably my favourite of the whole team. And yes, he uses the same weapon as the Captain does.
Argh, building his weapon was a pain. I was running out of ideas when I built it, so I ended up with...
He's my least favourite member of the team.
Since he uses dark metru red and silver, he stands pretty much out of the team. But since I had more keetorange to scatter around, I also build him.
I'm really happy how well his rifle turned out. It can even shoot.
The Crazy One
If The Marine doesn't stand out of the team, well, this guy surely does. He was more or less random, but it was also much fun to built him.
A detail of his neck, if anyone is interested. Originally I had planned to give him a typical Glatorian neck, but then I realized that X-Plode's head looks only good in a crooked position, and suddenly I came up with that spine-idea.
I also really like his feet. While the upper legs look kinda odd, the Toa Mata torsi worked well as lower legs. I'll kept this in mind for future MOCs.
So well, I hope you enjoyed these guys.
And don't worry, the next MOCs I'll upload won't contain that much red. Or orange. Or yellow. Stay tuned!
Two. Originally I hadn't planned to get him at all, but a few days before I built the team, I discovered the Glatorian Legends with a 50% price cut, so I got 2 Ackars, 2 Stronius and 1 Vastus. I'm also pondering to get a 3rd Gelu (yeah, I already own 2 Gelus, take a wild guess why).
Quoting Ahpolki Ihu
Are you gonna make teams for the other Elements as well?
Well... maybe. I don't think I've got enough parts to make a whole team with another element because I built several other MOCs with my more favourite colours, like blue. Maybe I'll make some sort of a team with green or black someday, but I'm not entirely sure about that. And THANKS for all the comments. I'd never expect that these guys would became that popular. :D
