Lego Monkey King Wukong
Behold the power of the Monkey King and behold one of the famous characters in Asian mythology. A really interesting character build - Wukong from the classical Chinese novel Journey to the West. This was the end result :)
About this creation
This moc is a long time coming and now it is finally finished.

Short Bio

Sun Wukong is a main character in the classical Chinese epic novel Journey to the West. Sun Wukong was born from a mythical stone from the primal forces of chaos, located on the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit. Early in life he joined a clan of monkeys and became their leader by finding the Water Curtain Cave. After the other monkeys honored him as their king he realized despite his power over the monkeys he was still only mortal. So determined to find immortality he traveled to civilized lands where he became a discipline of a Taoist immortal. There he learned all of the powers commonly associated to him in mythology. Sun Wukong is a famous character in Asian mythology and culture often being referenced in anime, manga and literature.

I like history, mythology and Wukong is one of my favourite mythology characters (there are others I like too).

There are really quite a good amount of interesting interpretations of the Monkey on internet and other sources, but I haven't taken any exact design, rather tried to make my own version of the character from my mind with the elements that randomly came in my head at the building process. And the thing is that, every moc that I have built before was just something from my imagination with absolutely no connection to anything, this time it was different, even thought that I was trying to come up with my own design, I still had to make sure that it has a primate-ish feel of a monkey king.

I must say this was a really interesting project, I must say I'm quite happy how the moc turned out in the end, but I think this character has much more potential, so in the future I will definitely build a companion monkey for the same reason - it has potential.

Fun fact

Sun is my first moc that has been built mainly with lego pieces, yes there are a few bionicle and technic pieces also (usually all my mocs contains bionicle and technic pieces) so this was a really great and new building experience for me.













That is it for now. Hope you like the creation. Please don´t hesitate with any comments, questions or criticisms, it means a lot to me :)

Quoting The Royal Brick Fantastic, Kira! Your mixture of Constraction and System works very well, and the colors look good as well. My only suggestion is to replace the red teeth with white ones.
Thank you *blush*, that's not a bad idea, I will definitely gonna try this idea.
