Voltstorm, the Cobalt Corsair
This is V9 of my self-MOC, Voltstorm.
About this creation
I'd like to apologize for any blurry pictures. My camera was having some problems with focusing.

Name: Voltstorm
Gender: Male
Species: Vo-Matoran (created by Makuta Malix)
Race: Toa
Home Island: Vaha Nui (placeholder name)
Element: Electricity
Affiliations: Toa Vaha (leader)
Personality: Serious, kind, always ready to help anyone in need


At first, I was just doing some minor upgrades on Voltstorm's armor, but it turned into a full update. I'm quite satisfied with how he turned out.


The cape was a later addition, but I think that it really adds to Voltstorm's look. Originally, I was going to use Furno XL's cape, but it was to short. So I had to make my own (though the cape might need a little work). The main differences are with his torso. I also shortened his legs (as suggested by Ivan Wanderer of the wasteland), as well as reversing the armor plates on his arms.


What I really wanted to address were Voltstorm's proportions. I changed the design of his waist (as Solias Toa of Earth recommended). The only things I want to change would be Voltstorm's arms and his lower-legs.





Here's Voltstorm's upgraded sword, though I only changed the hilt's design.


Now for some size-comparisons! Here's Voltstorm standing next to De'espe, the Champion.


Now for a picture of Voltstorm compared to Notharus (yep, Voltstorm is still tall, even with his shorter legs).



*Update*

The road to V10, including a checklist of what I plan to do for the upgrade



V10 checklist:
Use a blue Kakama for his mask [X]
Add a heartlight [ ]
Have his sword attached by more than friction [X]
Remove the metru blue pieces from Voltstorm's back [X]
Make his torso less skinny [ ]
Use feet that match his textures better [?]
Add white to his color scheme [ ]


Here's Voltstorm with his new mask: Kanohi Kakama, great mask of speed (the eye color is temporary. I only have that eye piece in red-orange). I'll admit, this mask doesn't have the same look to it that the old one had, but it still looks good.


And here's Voltstorm with his secondary mask: Kanohi Mohtrek, great mask of time duplication (I know it doesn't match his color scheme, but I like the mask).



Thanks for viewing!




Here's a preview of my next post, "Loki's Mighty not-so-Micro".

Quoting Wolf Pack I thought the Kakama might look foo small on Voltstorm, but it fits in perfectly!
Actually, Voltstorm's original mask was smaller than the Kakama :P

Quoting Ivan Wanderer of the wasteland I think the feet match his textures fine, especially the lower legs! If you must change them so good feet pieces are the inika feet with the spiky toes or the rahkshi feet.
I'm not 100% sure if I'll change his feet, but I'll look into it.

Quoting IVAX THE AWESOME Hey Chen. Just thought I'd let you know I'll make my own version of Voltstorm soon. Do you want me to include anything specific?
Well, the color scheme is important. And as for the mask, you could use either the mask he has right now, or a blue Kakama (which Voltstorm will have for V10). Other than those, you can do whatever you want ;)

Quoting Silverwing 05 Btw, did you know that the official definition of "corsair" is "pirate"? xD
The title was recommended by my brother :P I'll probably change that later (oh, and for the record, no I did not xD)

Quoting Silverwing 05 Looks great! Everything flows together really well, and it looks like the build is quite solid. By the way, is he able to bend at the knee? It looks like those visorak legs keep him from doing that... The new sword blade and guard look great, though I still say that you might want to look into non-friction connections (see Wolf for an example). Overall great work!
Thanks! And as for bending at the knee, not completely, but I'll work on that.

Quoting Runkbolt 12 Very nice! I like this rendition of Voltstorm even better than the last. He has a solid design and appears to be well armoured in all places. The one ting that looked out of place was the metru blue on his back. If you could make that a more prominent colour it may help. Or take it out entirely and replace it with some gunmetal, more mata blue, or some technic work.You may also want to change the feet out for something that flows better with the textures. I can't believe how great those arms look, especially for a prominently CCBS moc! I think you're one of the 'pages fastest developing moccers, so congrats for that too. Great overall moc and keep up the good work! PS: I think the Loki moc looks wicked and I can't wait to see it posted!
Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the metru blue armor and the feet. I'm at a lack mata blue and gunmetal pieces right now, since I don't have that many G1 Bionicle sets (though I did get quite a few Glatorion sets, so maybe I can borrow some parts from Tarix to add metru blue to the main color scheme).

Quoting Juppiter Augustus Furnus (JimiFurno) I feel that the torso is too skinny, and I also recommend doing as Runk said, but overall a very good MOC!
Thank you! I'll see what I can do.
