In a reconstructed Spherus Magna, the heroes we all know have gone long ago, and their stories are no more than legends. The society is split up, with several guilds spread trought the planet. From five to five years, their best warriors gather on the great Nui Tournament, a competition similar to that ones from the past, to prove wich tribe is the greater. Behind this scene of glory, however, intrigue and conspiracy rule the fate of the competition.
About this creation
Waikura is a member of the Rust Clan, an isolated group made of the last remnants of an outcast people. They live on the ruins of a colossal, far-away junkyard filled with all sorts of interesting things from the past of Spherus Magna. Most of wich they refuse to talk about. Very misterious of their ways, they are a self-sustained society, making nothing more than trade relations with the other guilds.
As misterious as their people, little is known about Waikura. Member of the Glatorian race, he claims to be a smith and expert on working metal, but where he got his fighting skills and what does the Clan want with the tournament, he refuses to tell.
It is also know that Waikura is a fierce fighter, relying with brute strenght and mechanichal enhancements, the most notable being the giant cannon he has for a right arm. Brute and quiet, he is not to be underestimated.
The huge gun is connected to two tanks on his back that hold deadly-hot molten metal, wich he shoots in the form of burning spheres. Also, he counts with two sharp blades mounted on the arm, plus a spiked armor that proved to be very useful on close-combat situations.
4366th Wall Commentary: hey, folks, just a little addition to my New Spherus Magna theme, in order to keep it from getting too cold. There are a couple more on the way, but nothing too fancy. I like to build Toa-mods (Okay, he is a Glatorian, but you get the idea) like this as kinda of a break between big projects. Also, I wanted to make something orange for a while now. So yeah, you might figure out there is kind of a big project on the way.
BTW, I'm aware the pictures are a bit too bright. It appears my lightbox setup doesn't work quite as well with bright colors, and I need to remake it a bit with some better paper and buy another light source, wich may not be done so soon... Anyway, I'll eventualy find the right way to do it, I believe.
And thats pretty much it. Stay tuned for more and keep MOCing, folks!
A very interesting character. It's a shame half of his pictures won't load over here. I like the idea of the molten metal shooter. it fits well with his background, and you've put a lot of thought into how the weapon would function and how it would be used. The matching of the spikes on his arms with the inika-feet on his shins is a good touch, too.
