Turned out to be slightly more than the average sketch-MOC, so, here you go. :)
About this creation
Name: Torrunn Gender: Male Race/Species: Glatorian/Toa Hybrid Occupation: TOA! Title(s): Brother Prevailing Element: Water Alignment: Lawful Good Affiliation: Korrothis Typical Tool(s): Feet Additions, Big Swords, Shoulder Blade, FANCY HAT MOC Status: Disassembled
Not a serious build. Just a quickie, based off a HF1.0 torso. Design is basic and uncustom. Main gist of this MOC was to play around with some greebles I haven't really used before from the minifig serieses, like the telescopes and the wierd hazmat gun thingy.
Also experimented with a new technique originally used on L.A. Miranda's Kerell! FANCY HATS! It's 'kay. I have permissions.
He's also my first Colonist MOC - this guy went with Gringat to Tempesta Caelestis, hence the techno-glatorian look. :)
Also, if anyone's worried (or relieved) that I seem to be spending my time on other MOCs instead of my Bio-Cup entry, don't be fooled. I have a backlog of MOCs I haven't posted due to exams - my entry is coming along nicely. >:D
See? Like you and Yuri Fassio have recently proven, there's nothing wrong with a nice, relaxed MOC just for fun. Not a fan of the 'hat', but I LOVE the rest. Great potential if you converted this to a more 'serious' design, using what you tried out here. Cheers!
I do enjoy a good, fancy hat every now and then. Whimsical builds are a breath of fresh air after the work I've put into writing the storylines for the Apocalypse members. I need to build something fun and silly soon.
Very, very cool. I personally find the HF1-bodies hard to moc with, because of their "warped" shape, but i think you made the best out of that. It's very nice, how the shins correspond with the hat, and that finally makes Torrunn look really great.
wow, you've been taking inspiration from not-so-famous builders. My LDD Extended instructions, Killer Quadrapeds Vralyns, and now L.A. Mirinda's fancy hats. anyway, Cool work! the upper legs, where did you get them?
I know that the hat isn't very hard to build, but I'm surprised that you didn't need more than a few pictures to build and improve it. Well, maybe is one of the reasons you're so famous here =3 MOCs like this are my favourites, following the spirit of the original sets but improved with own ideas. I really like the armor on the chest, and the overall MOC, although simple, is great. However, I think that you would managed to cover the hole on that Ben10-Rotor leg parts... And thanks to use my hat on a MOC! It made me very happy. ^^
