If I'm gonna post Ben's self-moc, I may as well post it like Ben's self moc :) Hence the intro shot of just feet!
About this creation
First, I feel bad, I made this back in april. You may ask, "so it's all upgraded and awesome now, right?" Nope, I tried to make a different back, and it didn't work out. So this is what you get.
Second, Jordan's brought it to my attention that I've made a few promises, like making a new Zerk. If you know me really well IRL, which none of you do quite yet, you'd know that I tend to get ideas, tell people about them, then totally forget them. So, I'll tell you now that I'm going to camp for 2 weeks on saturday, and after that I'll be arriving late to brickfair, so all my mocs are packed up, and I haven't been working on anything else, except for a small dragon, but PLEASE don't hold me to that.
Third: BRICKFAIR. I'm going to be getting there at noon on saturday. I'm supposed to set up on thursday and friday. Todd, the guy who organizes it, says that I have to set up on those days, so I need somebody, ANYBODY that I know somewhat to help me out:
If you're displaying at Virginia brickfair, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help my parents set up my stuff, as they don't know the first thing about lego. I figure if you're reading this and you're displaying, chances are I know you enough.
Last: On to the moc!!!
Original character by Chronos Omega. Duh.
Well here he is! He's pretty epic, isn't he? :3
Them legs. This moc probably took the longest time out of all my mocs! (besides robo-chicken, but that's another story!) I just HAD to incorporate those fenris wolf heads into the knees, and it took me a while to do it. I also went with an extremely humanoid look, like a regular person.
The torso, original style. Needless to say, I'm out of silver Vs XP
But I like it better with an hf plate over it. What do YOU think? My sister likes it without, but what does she know?
The arms took FOREVER. Please don't complain about over-greebling, as all those aren't actually greebles. Most of the upper arm is for structure, with a few to smooth out the lumpiness. But I just HAD to get an HF handcuff behind an Ignika shoulder armor piece, as it fits PERFECTLY, with a bendy-claw behind it. So all the rest is structure. Ridiculous, ridiculous structure.
Now you can see the elegant lower arms.
As Mahjqa said, "This is a case where finding the best solution to a problem takes most of an evening, and putting it together only takes a couple of minutes."
The back. More proof I suck at backs.
Here you can see I purposely used a common technique by Chronos, two of These and one of These.
The head. I made this not only because Ben's a good friend of mine, but also because I got Bulk 3.0 at Tuesday Morning for just $7!
And it's EPIC custom!!!!!1!! Give me credit if you use. It's surprisingly stable.
With his classic swords. Except I only have one. :P
I made him look like a conquistador, whatever the heck that means. I just had it in the back of my mind the whole time I was building him. So please don't ask. Here's him conquisting :P a PF battery pack. A good value!
Just one action shot before I go. Ha.
Comparison with Zerk. Of course, Zerk's just a goliath. And indomitable one :P
Bye! Don't forget to rate and comment, and maybe help me out with brickfair!!!
A very nice MOC. By the way a Conquistador was Spanish for conqueror their time period about late 1500's to early 1700's. They conquered the Aztecs one of the most powerful native empires of that time. Sorry, I'm a history kind of person. Now enough of my history lessons and onto your MOC. The first thing I would like to point out is the custom head, very creative. You are apparently good at making Titan MOCs. Perhaps the most impressive part of this MOC would have to be the arms the design is quite unique, I never thought the HF cuffs would be useful for nothing more than well...handcuffs really. Overall I like it very creative, very custom, but most of all like it should be... your MOC is unique I shall continue to look at your MOCs. I am sure you don't want to hear my rambling anymore so I'll close with these words: Always keep building! Commander CJ Potter
Awesome! I have to say that Pirai has always been one of my favorite Bionicle MOCs on here (if not my #1 favorite), and you've certainly done an excellent job on him. I love the proportions of this variant, and all the spikes sticking out at different points.
