You've already seen the toa. Here are their matoran counterparts.
About this creation
(3OH!3 - We Are Young)
Name: Gratigan Gender: Male Species: Matoran (G1) Race: Ta-Matoran Occupation: Detective, Deputy to Captain Xalos Title(s): Deputy Mask: Powerless Great Kakama, Mask of Speed Prevailing Element: Fire Alignment: Chaotic Good Affiliation: Poliaz Island Guard Typical Tool(s): none MOC Status: Assembled Died: in battle with Kanohi Dragon some time shortly after the fall of the Six Kingdoms
Gratigan was a detective on the island of Poliaz, and was both Xalos' right-hand man and best (only) friend. Despite frequently having to plunge into Poliaz's dark, gritty underworld, Gratigan was a very jovial and friendly character, starkly contrasting with his Ko-Matoran captain.
Name: Soleku Gender: Female Species: Matoran (G1) Race: Il-Matoran Occupation: Singer/Musician Title(s): none Mask: Powerless Great Akaku, Mask of Unseen Seeing Prevailing Element: Fire (just) Alignment: Chaotic Good Affiliation: Cyclestone Typical Tool(s): none MOC Status: Assembled Died: in battle with Rahkshi Horde during Destiny War
Soleku was a singer for the matoran band Cyclestone, based on Poliaz. Best friends with a ga-matoran named Eki, also a member of the band. Soleku was known to be even more stubborn than a Kane-Ra Bull, and had quite a large following.
The two first met after Gratigan tracked down Eki and rescued her from a dire hostage situation with the Black Delta gang. He became good friends with both of them, and Soleku began spending a lot of time with him. The two fell deeply in love with one another.
Soleku, stubborn as she was, refused to let Gratigan go to become a toa unless she could come too. They both knew the risk. Thankfully the two survuved the process. They married, as toa, later the same year.
These matoran look fantastic. I especially love the use of av-matoran arms for the torso of them. For Gratigan: The use of Red and Tan for a Ta-Matoran is not what I'm used to, but you pulled it off well. I dig the intricacy of his design.
For Soleku: The Silver akaku is a great addition to an already good color scheme. The torso design is complex (in a good way).
I would love to be able to make matoran like that one day. I hope it turns out as good.
Quoting Toa Phosphorus
Are any of their team still intact besides Gringat and The white guy's name who just left my head?
Xalos is (because he doesn't look any different as Icelord), and Kana is. I never made Abarium, and Orabmar is due a remake into his Spherus Magna form. Gringat Vanembar is completely scrapped, though. The Lord version's about to go too - revamping him soon.
Brilliant! Lovely techninques used here Gat, amazing work! They both look great! Nice use of HF spikes too :D LOL Gratigan's name is pretty much Gringat with the letters moved around a lot :P Anyway, awesome work :D
If I didn't allready know you were a great MOCist, I would say: You have a great style and the customness is outstanding! Nice Matoran! But i do, so it's implided. BTW I'm gonna add a Matoran Knoxus soon. :)
