Hello everyone, sorry for my little dissappearance. The short story is "Technical Difficulties" Anyway, this is an updated version of Migor, of the Destroyer's Three!
About this creation
“Well of course, for Migor is not a simple Rahi- he is more akin to his brothers, though unlike Mordath and Edoth, he chose a far more elegant form.”
-Thanatos, The Contenders #45
Migor is a dragon-like demon and one of Thanatos’ servants, the famed Destroyer’s Three. Taking on a more bestial form than his brothers, Mordath and Edoth, Migor relies on physical prowess in combat, though he is certainly not above dousing foes in his fiery breath. Despite his form, Migor is no brute; behind an inscrutable face lies a deep intelligence that may even exceed his brothers. Thanatos favours him, for he will carry out any task without complaint; he has a higher success rate than his brothers too, making him the most reliable.

Migor was the second servant to be created by Thanatos, following Mordath, and began life as a formless entity. While being sent out to do his master’s bidding, he decided upon an appropriate biomechanical form to take. Unlike his brothers, Migor ended up choosing the form of an animal, what could only be described as a three-tailed cat. Of all the Destroyer’s Three, Migor remained the closest to Thanatos, and eventually accompanied him to Racta Magna, in order to destroy a relic of resurrection known as the Gate. They were opposed by a team of heroes known as the Toa Racta; they knew they could not face Thanatos’ entourage with brute force and so instead decided to trick them, trapping them in a black hole and preventing them from destroying their planet.

It was whilst inside this black hole that Migor took on his second form, that of a small dragon. They were eventually freed by a Makuta named Reshak, who wanted them to find the Gate so that he could resurrect his father, the villainous Aroxion. Thanatos refused the Makuta, who responded by threatening to return them all to the black hole; while they could have very easily stood up to Reshak, they decided to play along and seek out the Gate with the Makuta’s minions. They retrieved the Gate itself, but the key to make it work was withheld by a Toa team known as the Contenders, whom they faced once again in the city of Racta Major; they ended up winning the key, yet they turned on Reshak at the last minute, defeating him and destroying Aroxion’s mask.

After this, Thanatos’ clan divided their efforts: Migor left with his master to correct the imbalance of life that had formed in their absence, while his brothers Mordath and Edoth remained back on Racta Magna, to seek out a way to destroy the Gate for good. Thanatos received reports from the both of them stating that they were no longer working together and instead competing against each other to destroy the Gate first; Migor was thus sent back to deliver a message to the both of them, ordering them to reunite immediately to achieve the task. They both refused, yet still produced results; Mordath was the first to reach the Gate, tricking the former minions of Reshak into throwing an armed detonator into the Gate, seemingly destroying it.

Though Migor’s brothers returned, apparently victorious, the Gate was not gone for good. Four undead villains were released in the destruction; they came to be known as the Shadebringers, and were in fact spearheaded by Aroxion, the Makuta whom Reshak and his minions had tried to resurrect. They defeated Racta Magna’s protectors, the Contenders, and took over the city of Racta Major. Being creatures related to the Gate, Thanatos and his minions quickly returned to the planet and gave them a warning to cease-and-desist, one that the Shadebringers laughed off. They temporarily retreated, and Thanatos debated the merits of forsaking the planet to the Shadebringers; however, the sentimental Edoth passionately convinced his master to resist.

Their minds made up, Thanatos and the Destroyer’s Three gathered all the enemies of the Shadebringers in one place, forming them into the collective known as the Champions of Day; spearheading them was Toa Raxonax, the only member of the Contenders to escape imprisonment. This army battled their way to Racta Major, where they were confronted by Aroxion himself; Thanatos and the Destroyer’s Three held him off, while the rest of the army entered the city and defeated the other Shadebringers. Aroxion ended up stealing Thanatos’ flame, becoming more powerful; it took the joint effort of both the Contenders and the Champions of Day to slay Aroxion and save the planet.

After formal goodbyes, Migor and his brothers followed Thanatos off the planet and towards the stars, where they carried out their grim task for the rest of eternity.
Alright, here he is. The changes, you may notice, aren't many. The biggest thing I did was to change the torso. This one is much thicker and much more stable, meaning he could stand up much better. I shortened the wings because I thought that they would look a little better and a little more like wings. I changed the tip of the tail slightly, along with the eyes and I also adjusted the positioning of the Ben 10 tails, because why not? Anyway, not the biggest revamp, but I thought it was enough to warrent a post.
The back. Doesn't that look so much better?
On all fours. Although the photo for this on the original looked slightly cooler, the original was a nightmare to keep balanced.
I have no idea on what this was meant to be.
Flying! Well, aside from my hand. Gosh, have you never heard of suspension of disbelief?!
Roaring contest! It's beginning to occur to me that this year's Hero Factory titains aren't very big.
Migor is obviously taller when on his hind legs.
Ahma firin' mah lazah!

The Destroyer's Three reunion!
Obviously the best upgrade is that Migor can be both ridden. Though I only show Edoth on him here, Mordath can fit too. It looks slightly more comical though.
Alright! Sorry, as I said before, I had a bit of a problem. My computer died, quite literally. I'm still adjusting to the new computer, and so I haven't been able to get on in a while. I had a total of 5 posts backed up which I've now lost. As soon as I've re-shot and re-edited, they'll be up here. So unless England blows up or something, expect more from me quite soon. The MOC that I teased in the Shadonax post will be up next!
Again, sorry for the delay, and I'll see you soon, I hope!
So, while this post is a tad old, I'm gonna critique it anyways. Migor's forelimbs are a tad thin, as is his waist, and the wings are also a tad small, however that makes sense since I've made rather large CCBS wings and they have a bad tendency to flop around, still I would test some other designs out to try and come up with something more proportionate. Still, Migor is a fierce looking guy, and I'd h@t3 to be an adversary.
