Carnotaurus V2
I've been wanting to do this revamp for a long while, ever since summer of last year! Taking your feedback on the previous version, I've remade the Carnotaurus MOC to be more proportionate and just overall better looking. Hope you enjoy!
About this creation

FRONT! Eh, not this again.

BACK! Still doesn't help.

SIDE! There we go! Still no 100% happy with the proportions, it's not quite there for the Carnotaurus (Looking a little too Tyrannosauridae as opposed to Allosauridae) but it's at least looking like an actual dinosaur.

Plan view.

The head. Greatly reduced, though still a little too wide for the Carnotaurus, especially in the lower jaw. I really like how this looks though, despite the inaccuracy. If it was a T-Rex MOC, then I think i'd be happier.

Arms. Greatly shrunk down; as small as I could possibly get them while still making them look like arms.

Torso. The basic design is maintained, as I really did like the topside and the basic structure, but I've added a lot more bulk to it.

Legs. Only the shins and feet have been changed. I know that people did like the original shins and feet, but the design wasn't very stable, and the thinner legs work with the proportions much better. Its balance is kind of reduced, but it can stand sufficiently and I can get it into a sort of walking pose. (After much effort)

Tail. I liked the overall look of the original, but I agreed with Chains Productions' comment "that it look[ed] very static and not very lively." So I tried to maintain the original thickness while allowing for some up/down articulation in the tail. It does lose a bit of the solid look of the original, but I think the sacrifice was worth it.

One final thing; I gave it handlebars. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?!

GET. FRIGGIN. HYPED!!

Size comparison with Montu. It is very amusing that I thought the proportions between these two were "eh, about right" in the last version. Should be about twice the size of this, but I'm not really concerned about that honestly.

Terrorizing Lewa and Uxar. Articulation has been greatly improved, though the balance has been slightly reduced, meaning it takes a lot of patience to get the thing into a running pose like this.

My three Rahi! Migor the dragon, Idonax the cat/crocodile thing and Carnotaurus the... carnotaurus...

My four tallest MOCs! From left to right: Thanatos, Carnotaurus, the Guardian of The Gate and the Jankori

Not amazingly tall or anything, the tallest being 16 inches, which isn't huge as huge MOCs go. Carnotaurus' height depends on the stance he's taking though; reared up, it can reach about 15 inches, while when completely flat-backed it's only 9 inches.

That's all folks!
Hope this one's better :P

Quoting Chains Productions Very good job! I think this a pretty great improvement to your previous versions. I think the proportions are a lot more even. I like the tail quite a bit and it does look more lively. I think the shaping looks better now as well. I do however, feel there are some problems. Firstly, the shins don't look just as good, but you have explained them, so I won't go on about them. I also feel shis ams feel a little too short. I feel it could use another small bone piece to five it a little more length. Also, excited for the Carnotaurus to show up for trhe last 20 minutes of The Contenders: Age of Extinction. Overall, a pretty good moc. Nice job man!
Thanks Chains, I'm glad you like it! Yeah, people did seem to like the original shins; I may have to find some way to compramise between the two designs. I appreciate your criticism about the arms, but Carnotaurus arms are meant to be that small; I wouldn't want to make them any bigger.

Quoting Toa Gaim I thinking of a reference from the Nostalgia Critic review on Jurassic Park.
Oh right! When you said "Have a field day" with it, I thought you meant having a field day ripping it to shreds, as if it were a hardcore dinosaur enthusiast or something :P

Quoting Toa Gaim Nice transformers reference there and I got a feeling that a certain critic will have a field day with this moc as it resembles a T-Rex.
Thanks! But #idontgetit

Quoting Windfall the Wanderer Good gravy, where do you get all your pieces from? I've been bereft of any pieces for months and I have half as many mocs as you!
Well, I've been buying sets since 2003, making an effort to get most of the Bionicle sets; it's an accumulative process over a long stretch of time. :)

Quoting [ C.P.D. ] It all looks amazing. There is something with the legs that is weird, but I can't tell what. Great job!
Thanks mate! It's probably that the legs are too skinny, as Blizzard said; I may have to bulk them out a little bit.

Quoting The Royal Brick This is a sick model! I love the colorsheme, and the construction looks awesome - especially the SUPER short arms!
Thanks TRB! :D

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Awesome! I kinda liked the old head and feet better, but this is nice too. Also, Contenders Age of extinction is now my most anticipated movie of the year! I look forward to seeing how this will work as a sequel to your last film and seeing the contenders in the new movie! GET HYPED!
Thanks Raptor! Yeah, The feet did look nice, but they weren't really stable and the head was way too big for the MOC- but glad you liked them anyway! Yes, the new film will be very cool- four hours of Raxonax eating oreos and drinking beer, culminating in him slicing Dread into two pieces and acting like its honourable. :P

Quoting Blizzard - This makes me think of Disney's 'Dinosaur' they made some time back. Right, now that that random thought is out of the way... nice work! The head design looks pretty darn good, and the arms are pretty accurate. My only problem is that the legs look so... thin from some angles. And I'll be waiting for that Contenders's chapter XP.
Yes, I very much liked that movie back in the days when I was shorter than this MOC :P I'm glad you like the MOC! Yeah, the legs do look bad when they're stretched out like that; I should really thicken them out, but I like the design too much! And you won't be dissappointed in regards to CAoE... and the three sequels that I've already planned :P
