Astrav Kaita . Bio Cup 2013, Round Four . Contest: Bio Cup 2013
Name: Astrav [Kaita]
Alignment: Lawful Good
Allegiances: Army of Mata Nui [a very militaristic, less secretive extension of the OOMN]
Origin: AOMN test labs
Powers: Elemental control of Magnetism, Gravity, and Lightning
Kanohi: Garai, Hau, and Sanok
Weaponry: creatively-titled Big Sword
Personality: Basically, the same as Astrav is normally, except slightly paranoid, with alternating inferiority and superiority complexes.
Bio: The AOMN decided to make two clones of Astrav (identical except for masks and elemental powers, which they modified) and then forced the three into a Kaita. Since all three Astravs were in effect the same being, they didn't have to worry about the mental confusion experienced by other Kaita in the past. The test went reasonably well but the trio was split again afterwards.
Don't get me wrong, I love vacations, it's great that I have the opportunity to go to cool places and whatnot... but they have the worst timing ever. The Lancer T5 was built in three days, I had literally one day between vacations in which to build this, and my next EBC entry will be built in less than a day, if I manage it.
I've heard the whole "considering the circumstances I think it's cool" argument, but I'm still disappointed. I do like this entry... as a WIP. I do think of it as unfinished, since it was quite rushed, but I'm not likely to make an effort to improve upon the build unless I make it to round five (in other words, I'm not likely to make an effort to improve upon the build).
Here's the issue. The torso and arms together looks great. The torso and legs together looks great. The whole thing together somehow looks very weird. It's something to do with the proportions, but I'm tired of looking at the MOC, so you guys can just tear it apart in the comments, eh?
ANYWAY, thank you all for viewing, good luck to everyone still in the Bio Cup (and, if I may be so bold, to myself)... and while you're stopping by, why not check out some of my recent MOCs?
