I was peeved at archangel's indescriptive pics (not the camera, I can deal with blurry, but the tow best pics of her was of her back, and with a giant chainsaw covering the body.)
So, I decided that I might as well go with a more dangerous torso that I've always wanted to do, and it worked out to be the best torso I've ever made, landing her as a main character in my story!
In my story, he's Yiang, one of the original three toa, and the toa of energy.
Here's her with her normal mask, but because it's mine and it's going to be in the story, I decided another mask fits her better:
Kopaka Phantoka's mask!
The torso. As I said, I'm VERY pleased with how it came out. The ball joints at the top almost didn't work, but they look great! I also like the upper side chest pieces, I used that design in the next self-moc. If you want to use it, just give me credit!
The back, with one wing lifted to show the metru shoes on the back. Those almost didn't work too.
Upper arms. God I love those metru shoulder pieces!
inside of the upper arms. I think they came out well, and I got to use that new technic piece too!
Lower arms. Not too special, but it fits perfectly!
Upper CUSTOM legs. You have NO idea how long it took for me to get those right.
On the flip side, I got these custom lower legs to work immediately! They look so pro!
How they work. Bask in the awesome! Again, if you use this just give me credit.
She's not too poseable, but I'll try... (eh.)
Running? I can't tell :S
Now what? Don't ask.
Sneak peek of Ventalis! Yes, I had to cannibalize Zukon a bit. But I think Zukon will be more permanent than Ventalis anyway, so don't feel sad.
Don't forget to rate and comment, and get your self-moc made HERE!
I think really because you made her a guy and because you changed the name in your story and you gave her a different story AND because of the diff mask that you should have not called it Archangel. I'm just saying. How would you like it if I made you self moc and made him a girl and a different head that didn't look like the original and gave him a diff story. I just think you should think about that. It is a good moc but not as Archangel. ,Shadow
I like it, i was thinking of changing her mask, but not the one used here. i like the moc, and i appreciate that you made her, thank you. But i understand the bulk, it is a dude in the story, after all. i enjoy the customness and the build. But my self moc is a girl, as am i, but its ok that u made it a dude, my version of Solunus is a girl, after all.

I'll be honest. It's an amazing moc... BUT it looks like a guy. Way too bulky and big. Sorry, but i am not liking this.
I have two responses to you guys; one, you're making a stereotype that I find uncomfortable as the builder of somebody else's self-moc, and two, I didn't know archangel was a girl when I built her. Oh, and three, in my story, she's a guy, who happens to be very powerful. So there. But I agree, it might be a bit bulky.
Cool! Me! Archangel looks nice but she looks like a dude. Too bulky. Love all of the customness put into her. Those shoulders and legs look especially nice. I like that technique with the metru feet on her back. But where's the weapon? And she has wings right? BTW you spelled Ventalus wrong. It has a u not an i

Nice job! I do think that the iruni mask works better because otherwise, you probably would not know it is her
Well, I fell that's what the title page is for... Since it's my own version of the moc, and in the story she's a whole different person (who's not even a she) who I wanted to be entirely black and white, I decided to go with a mask that's white, but I suppose it's a matter of opinion. I do like it gold though! :)
