Tyranca V3
I've been wanting to do this revamp for a while now; I liked the last version, but I wanted to make use of all of those spare parts I got from Takathorax to make the Toa of Light Racta Magna deserves!
About this creation
“The whole point of the Torm is that we provide a home for people when no one else will. I just wish that Anut would remember that sometimes…”
-Tyranca, Beginning Redemption

Tyranca:
Tyranca is a Toa of Light and a member of the Contenders: she also was the co-founder of the Toa of Racta Minus, abbreviated as the Torm. She wields two golden Katana and a modified Kaukau, which allows her to not only breathe under water, but in any environment without oxygen. Though technically not young for a Toa, she is youthful in demeanour: she is energetic and passionate, enjoying the thrills of battle to a strong degree. However, having lead the Torm, she is also responsible and mature, in addition to being a good tactician.

Tyranca originated from Spherus Magna, and was transformed into a Toa at an early stage in her life by the Order of Mata Nui; she ended up working under the group, not as a member but as an expendable servant. At one point she, along with many other Toa, was sent to an unnamed planet to explore and possibly exploit its resources; they were met with resistance from a species of barbaric bipedal canines, and war was waged. One of these creatures in particular, named Sohbec, was attracted to her, an idea which repulsed her; she left the Order’s rank after this, not willing to be their soldier any longer. Tyranca had been pondering migrating to Racta Magna ever since, but wanted to wait until the war between the Toa Racta and the Makuta Sombrak had ended. After the death of Aroxion, the Sombrak leader, she finally made the move.

She took a friend with her, a Toa of Iron named Anut. They unfortunately struggled to get into the city of Racta Major due to high immigration levels, and so were left in Racta Minus. They met many other Toa in the same situation, and they ended up founding the Toa of Racta Minus (Torm), an alternative to living in Racta Major. Concerned with the fact that Racta Major had not opened its doors in three years, Tyranca took three members of the Torm to wait outside the city until its current representatives, a Toa team called the Contenders, appeared. Tyranca confronted them, only to be interrupted by Sohbec, now a dark hunter, who had been tracking the Contenders. Despite losing the other Torm members and being forced to confront Sohbec, Tyranca was optimistic about establishing an alliance with the Contenders.

At one point she invited a former Dark Hunter, Kuvago, to join the Torm. After he had proved his worth, she helped him to defeat his former partner, Slave Driver. Kuvago’s joining was the beginning of a state of tension between Tyranca and Anut. He commonly voiced his concerns and delivered veiled threats to her, but she ignored him. At one point, while away, she encountered the demon Edoth and two of the Contenders, Toa Cilla and Toa Montu; after they explained their mission to her, she invited them back to the camp. Once she returned, she and Kuvago were thrown out by Anut, who took over the Torm for himself. Going with her new friends, Tyranca travelled to the outer rim of Racta Minus, where they fought several foes, including Edoth’s brother, Mordath.

Here they met with another Contender, Toa Dorru, who proposed that the group go back to Racta Major. Tyranca reluctantly accepted, but Kuvago refused and left the group. On the way to the city the group fought the villain Dread along with Dukrina and Apothrahk, former servants of Reshak; they scraped a narrow victory. They arrived at Racta Major and she set up residence there. She also participated in another fight with Dread and his gang. When they got back, Tyranca was officially initiated as a member of the Contenders and the group set out to fight Dread’s army, the Platonic Justice; the villains were quickly beaten. In addition to this, a mystical portal to the afterlife known as The Gate was destroyed; the residual energy from this created new, smaller portals; one summoned the legions of an alternate version of Makuta, and another summoned a parallel version of the Toa Nuva; each of these the Contenders had to deal with in kind.

Life persisted as normal in Racta Major for a whole year, until a being named Shadonax inexplicably returned from death- the Contenders confronted him outside Racta Major, but were bested. They were locked away in Racta Major’s inner vault and sedated by the resurrected Makuta Astrok, one of the tyrannical Shadebringers who now ruled the city. Tyranca was freed from her shackles when she accidentally attacked Raxonax, his violent retaliation clearing her mind. After a morale-boosting speech from the Toa of Gravity, Tyranca was ready to strike back at the villains; she and the others were quickly slaughtered by Shadonax, who resurrected them soon after, making a spiteful point to Raxonax.

Tyranca and the others were returned to their cell in the inner complex.


Here she is! I had two major aims with this MOC: the first was to get rid as much of the grey as I can, as I felt that it sucked out a lot of the colour from the last version. I wanted to add a little more broadness to her also, to kind of break away from the generic female Toa stature that Tyranca had, while also maintaining the agile, streamlined form that reflects her character. Both fields could use a little work, but it's definately an improvement over the last version.

The back. That's a thing I guess...

Profile! I just wanted to show off the head design more than anything; I'm quite proud of it, though it's not as articulatable as I would have liked it to be.

Weilding her Katana! Yeah, I was gonna do something more interesting with her weapon, but I decided that I kinda like the look of her holding the two swords like that.









With Ekimu, the Mask Maker!

Facing off against Sohbec, her rival!

Fighting Slave Driver. She doesn't get along with Dark Hunters it seems, with the exception of Kuvago.

With Anut, Kuvago and Skartau. The cast of Beginning Redemption!

Meeting with the Contenders.

Next week's MOC.

That's all, folks!

Update 17/11/15:

Just showing you some of the modifications made in response to everyone's feedback. I couldn't do everything that everyone wanted, but I covered the important stuff.

Firstly, I changed the torso armour to something a little more shapely. It's a little loose fitting, but I really like how it looks.

Then, I changed the shin armour. I worry that all of my characters have really bulky shins, but people seem to not like the skinnier legs on characters in general, so I changed it anyway. These still have a nice shape to them though.

Finally, adressing the biggest complaint about Tyranca, I gave her swords hilts. I know some of you were probably expecting custom hilts, and I did try the first time around to do something a little more interesting, but that just resulted in the hilt being too long and it looking wierd. My initial plan was to leave it off, but I now agree with you guys that it needed a hilt. So I added one!

That's all the updates for now. I couldn't implement all of the advice given to me without drastically changing the whole MOC, but I hope this is a little better.

See you guys later!

Whoa, hold on there! I'm kinda busy with life ATM, so this might be a while yet before I even start. Also, I can assure you that they won't be having any children. Sorry.

Maybe. I would either do a detail of their history, or a mini story where they meet up again or something.

Quoting jedidiah munsell Hmmm, I think her uppers and lower arms need to be shortened and all together smaller (mostly shorter) :)
Possibly, though it's harder to make good designs when the arms are shorter than that. Still, thanks for the feedback! :)

Quoting Chains Productions Nice MOC man! The gold really works well with the white and it has a very nice balance here now with the almost total eradication of grey. The golden spikes and addons are all very nice ways of personalizing this MOC. The head is the best part in my opinion. I can't put my finger on it but I just really like the way it turned out. This MOC does suffer from a few problems however. The swords are a nice addition, but they do need hilts to help make them look more like weapons and less like she's just holding two blades in her hands. I also think the back of the upper legs jutt out way too far and make them look really strange. The stars piece on her stomach looks quite weird as well. Also, the inside of her upper arm looks very strange and looks very painfull for Tyranca :P (See image: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=421441&id=/user_images/67499/1446845538m) Overall, she's a good MOC who I think is better than her previous versions, but needs a bit of retooling to help her become as good as possible.
Thanks Chains! I've noted all of your points. I have already changed some of them, like the inclusion of hilts to her swords and the Stars piece on the torso. Others I unfortunately can't do anything about, like the upper arm design and the back of the thighs. If I changed the former, like let's say, adding Glatorian necks to replace the Hordika ones, then it would come out a bit too long. There's also no way I could change the latter, as those Brutaka toe pieces are really hard to work with :P Thanks for the comment, man!

Quoting ~ Omega ~ I have to agree with Dragoneye, the katanas need some kind of hilt, nothing to complex. Overall the moc is really good, but that tahu stars piece on the belly makes her look a bit "chubby".
Thanks man. Yeah, the stars piece was bugging me too, I think I might change that...

Quoting Dragoneye Creations Man, this one is pretty awesome. Although, make her katanas a bit more unique, like adding a custom hilt or something. Overall, fantastic revamp, I might say.
Thanks! I may add a large gold barb piece for the hilt.

Very nice work. The build is nice, the concept is pretty good, and the weapons suit the moc. I don't really have any critique. I should probably sum all my comments up with that last sentence.

Very nice work here, I do enjoy the small size for it fits her quite well. I really have no complaints on this one. Also I was wondering if I could get a poster for my new moc, yes I know this seems really out-of-the-blue, but you seem very good at using these programs. I'll throw in the pic(http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=421147&id=/user_images/74279/14462651762) if you decide to take it. I await your reply

Quoting Windfall the Wanderer Really amazing, as always. I like your efforts to alter her proportions, and I loved that character description of her you gave. She definitely looks better. The only complaint I have is that her legs seem a bit stubby and thin compared to her characteristic sort of toughness and broader body. I think something like KKII leg armor would help with that, but unless you've got a bunch of white liftarms, I doubt there is a way to help besides that
Thanks Windfall! Unfortunately I don't have any gold Knights Kingdom shin armour, though I'm sure there's a way for me to bulk out those legs a bit...
