For the BioCup 2013!
Well, I guess this is the first Toa-of-Ice I've ever built :D
Please note that I'll improve the lower legs and arms as soon as the contest is over. So PLEASE do not comment about these parts of the MoC.
About this creation
Titles: Toa / Suukann
Affilation: Formerly his Toa-Team
Enemies: His ex Toa-Team
Mask: Kanohi Hau, great mask of shielding
Bio: Suutrahkann used to be a simple Matoran, living on an island in the northern regions of the planet Croma Magna. It is unknown what his job was, but one day, a great war started. Suutrahkann, also known as Suukann, was chosen to become part of an elite Toa-Team and was transformed into a Toa.
His teammates were Sentrann, a Toa of Electricity, Krosan, a Toa of Plasma, Equi, a Toa thought to be a Toa of Earth and 2 others. (Not revealed yet)
They fought in the war for a long time, until one day, the whole team was separated. Krosan was thought to be dead, and the others were nowhere to find.
After the war, Suukann spent years searchinf for his Team-mates, but to no avail.
Feeling quilty and ashamed of his friends' death, he decided to travel the world in order to help other people.
Very good entry! The color scheme is very good and well balanced and your moc looks very imposing, but the torso should be shorter, the neck should be a tad bit longer (the head seems a bit buried in the torso) and a weapon of sorts would be nice to go along with him. Still I find this somewhat deserving of an 8. Well done!
Nice one. The colors go well and the design is good. The only real critique, technical-wise, her, is that the inner part of the forearms could have ben covered better, and also a better lower leg would help. All-in-all, a solid entry. Nothing really exceptional, I must say, but nothing much to complain either. So here goes a 7, with some imaginary decimals.
Nice and solid figure, but the posability could be improved for the waist. I do see a balljoint there, but it seems to be rather restricted. The colors work well and the trans-blue bits add nice contrast. The lower legs are a bit too basic and feel to actually need more silver on them to flow better with the rest of the limbs. I'm gonna give this 7 points.
Gotta say, Des - this one's talkin' to me. GREAT organic curves, sweet colorset. High points: the fangs protruding from the shoulder armor, the limb closure (all over: I disagree with your assessment of the lower legs - I approve of their current config just fine), that tube routing through the technic bracket on the outer/floating 'rib' area, etc... I could take or leave the cape; I think it's strong enough as is, but accessories are generally a good thing. =) FIGURE-wise one of the best in the Cup, thus far. 8 solid points. Cheers!
How did I miss this yesterday? Looks lovely, dear. White, silver and light translucent blue, without more black parts than the bars. The torso looks marvelous, I really like the chest and the way the cape is connected. My favourite detail would be the way you trapped the Bohrok silver eyes in the Nuva armor, though. Great job!
