Maruda (2011 Bio Cup: Round 2) . Round 2 for the Bio Cup, I'm against Someone Even Less Popular in the Category: #9 Dark Fantasy Toa. Plus Bonus MOC! :D Enjoy!... . NAME: Maruda
SPECIES: Unknown Matoran Species
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good
OCCUPATION: Toa, Huntress
TITLES: Black Death, Toa, Sister, Maruda
MASK POWER: Unknown
WEAPONS: Claws, Sensory Tentacles
STORY: Maruda is a Toa that came to the order as a Matoran, she asked to become part of the Toa but no one knew who she was, where she came from or even what she was. She later proved her worth by destroying a Makuta attacking Matoran on the beaches of Mata Nui. The leaders of the Toa believed she was a gift from the Great Beings and they accepted her as a Toa.
They soon found out things about her, that she can barely see out of her one eye, and that her tentacles are her main sensory devices, they act for seeing, smelling, hearing and even tasting. They also found she knows nothing of her past either, that she just washed up on the shores of Mata Nui and came to that Toa.
The Toa leaders were uneasy about this Toa, for she seemed to have a sort of dark side to her. They then sent her on some assignments with other Toa, who were to report to the leaders of her behavior, but they found out nothing, except that she is skilled in what she does best, killing people. Mostly by squeezing them to death.
The leaders are cautious about this Toa, but are still proud to have a skilled warrior like her on their forces.
(I couldn't find the right theme song. Any ideas?)
To the MOC!
Some full body shots.
A close up of her face. Kind of an alien look.
Her body...*ahem*. Yeah, I'm definitely going to use this body again, it's a nice design...for a Fe-MOC. :P
Other right arm...I mean left arm. :P
Her sensory tentacles.
Her backside, with extra sensors.
I seeeee you!
A last shot.
Jordan: Let's play the count shoulder game!
Hmm...there's only two? *Ahem*
A bit later.
Ow, ow! Okay, you win!
Mata Nui: Jordan! What in my name are you doing being so romantically embraced with this octopus!
Mata Nui: Jordan! Jordan! Peh! It's useless.
Yes, here's the bonus MOC. Mini Mata Nui Robot! :D
He's pretty pose-able, if a little fragile.
Mata Nui: Hello Jube-- What happened to your head?
Jube: That fat octopus took it!
Mata Nui: Uh...this isn't working, hold on a minute...
Mata Nui: There we go! Now, it's back to normal.
Uh...Mata Nui, I think I'm in love.
Mata Nui: Love? Are you mad! My own creation in love, please tell me it's not the squid.
Mata Nui: Really, you could find much better. It's no different than your hitting on Miss Phosphorus!
Mata Nui: Sigh...I've failed at creating feeling-less minions.
...If you don't want to be supreme ruler anymore, can I?
This was something different for me, I've never built Black Fantasy before. I used only three colors in the entire MOC, only two are visible though, black and trans-orange. I think I did pretty well though.
