LTC Callux
About this creation
Well, this is belated. Sorry about that; things have been busy. I thought they'd die down just after the exams, but apparently no. Somehow they got busier! Well, this guy's been lying around for weeks just waiting to be photographed, but I haven't had a chance due to music, homework and more music. But enough of that; I finally present to you the Lego Transformers Conquest version of Callux! This is another self-MOC that I've remade. It's based on Toa Callux's, well, Toa Callux. But of course it had to be just 'Callux' in this version, but it still works well. Anyway, I'm coming up with this idea called 'The ___ Alliance' (not sure of a name yet, but it'll come to me). It consists of Spectre, Sledgehammer, Callux and Jamus, the final creation made by Bumblebee 5253. This alliance might actually lead to a spinoff series where they find themselves on a planet full of Quintessons and have to fight them, assisting the rebels on that planet in the process. Perhaps they could uncover a conspiracy of the Gladicons and the Gladibots, a storyline in Callux's continuity. You see, LTC is my own continuity that can either create whatever it wants or draw from others, canon or non-canon. Yes, even jaAm gets in there thanks to Chris. But enough of that. I'll leave the rest of the stuff in the MOC. Enjoy. :)

Okay, before I start I have two things to tell you.

1: The LDD file will probably be posted on Monday. The reason why shall be explained in the second point.

2: I'm away this weekend. That means it has to be on Monday. After that, I'm here on Sunday night and Monday. Then, I leave again between Tuesday and Thursday. I'll be back to normal activity on Friday, when I'll be closing the contest.

BIO: Callux is considered a maverick among the Autobot ranks, however he does not fit to most stereotypes. The reason for his insubordination is simply to do what's best for the team. He often charges into battle situations deemed too dangerous by Optimus Prime to save a fellow comrade. Eventually, Optimus gave him free reign over his actions. He orders him, but expects them to be followed as guidelines instead of rules.

Okay, so here we have Callux in his helicopter mode. Since this was a Bionicle MOC originally, and not a Transformer one, I didn't have any constraints with the vehicle mode. So, I made him a helicopter. The question here isn't 'why?', it's 'why not?'.


You'll notice that the cockpit at the front is a little small. This is because it rotates back to reveal the head, which acts as a support in the vehicle mode.


The vehicle mode, and the transformation, are heavily inspired by DOTM Skyhammer. I own the toy, but it's lost somewhere around the house where I'm unable to find it. So, the link to TFWiki will have to do.


Here's the first of the two gifs. This one shows the propellors rotating. The front does so smoothly, but the back is a little more stiff.


The second gif shows the transformation. If you own Skyhammer, or have seen a review, you'll see the similarities in the leg section. But other than that, it's all different. I mean, come on, I don't want the blades becoming the chest now, do i? :P


And here we have Callux in his robot mode!


Man, this thing was hard to photograph. He has a similar problem that Sledgehammer had, where he toppled back at the knee joint. I think I'm going to have to get some ratchet joints, as this seems to be happening often. It wasn't a case with Soundwave, though. In fact, I'd say his legs are a little too sturdy!


At first, I wanted to make the back section like blackout. i then scrapped that and tried to make it a weapon he could hold. I then finally realised that it could make a cool details on the backpack. So, I kept it.


You'll see here that the head looks similar to that of Maxilos. That's because I tried to emulate it, as Callux uses the same mask. The difference, however, is the light on the side of the head. As it was different on Callux, it's different here.


Well, to finish off, here's the reference I used. The only reason I didn't use a cape was because Spectre has one. Sorry, Callux (the MOCer). But I did work on the other stuff well. The main comparison is the body composition. The chest area is a lot more slender than most of my MOCs, as this MOC was done in that style.

Well, anyway, that's enough for now. The LDD file will be on the pages with some images on either Sunday or Monday. Until then, like and comment tonnes so that I have something to look forward too when I get back. Until then, happy building! :)

Quoting Andrew31kbrick193 /// I can't see a resemblance between this an Callux, but it's still a cool transformer.
This should help:http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/390516

Quoting Bumblebee 5253 Yay, it loaded! I can see your parents working in the kitchen! :D
Ha ha! Well, they're just silhouettes. If you could see their faces, or mine, then with a little work a death note could cause some problems. :P (Death note joke).
Quoting Commander Spencer Pretty cool, though I honestly think you should start making Bio-MOCs. You've made all these other Bionicle-related builds, but no actual Bionicle. I would really like to see what you could make. :)
Eh, no. I tried that. It failed. Transformers are my speciality, and this is just a continuity thing. I can build anything in a transformer version, but bionicle isn't really my thing. Just see the best I can come up with and understand that I REALLY can't do bionicle: http://www.mocpages.com/folder.php/163481
Quoting Scott Bourgeois As always, awesome build, Declan! Have a great weekend!
Well, now that I'm back, I can confidently say that it WAS a good weekend. :)

Quoting Callux Toa of Fire Thank you so much declan!! This is a great B day present. Plz check out my newest moc.
I will when I get back on Sunday night. :)
Quoting Bumblebee 5253 Very nice work, can't wait until he's in color! And the second gif doesn't work :/.
Yeah it does. Just wait for it to load, first. Maybe the internet doesn't like loading long gifs on your end. If you still have a problem, click on it to view it on brickshelf.
Quoting Evan Botkin Great work! I like both modes a lot but it seems to me that the main rotor blades are too short. I guess they wouldn't really work for the backpack if they were longer but it makes the vehicle look a little strange. Still great job and it does resemble the source image.
Well, since most vehicles here have a cybertronian-esque look to them, I can get away with some things. :)

Well, it turns out that there's a computer at the train station I'm at! For free use! Well, it's not meant to be used for MOCpages, but who cares. I'm gonna check the comments quickly and get on the train. Bye guys!
