"I don't have time for this. I have places to be, and bodies to break. I want you to send out a message to all your friends, to everyone who sails in and out of this island. Tell them Miserix is back, and when I find him, Teridax is dead!"
About this creation
My rahi-based interpretation of Miserix. BMC 2014 Round 4 (Theme: Rahi - can be a canonical rahi/rahi-like creature or based on real animals).
Hello! It's me again, with my entry for round 4 of the BMC. Not going to do much talking this time.
Basically, this is (as I said in the intro), my version of Miserix, since I always imagined him as more of a rahi than a Makuta, especially the way I imagined him reading Federation of Fear.
I did actually make the staff that his official appearance wields, but I forgot to take a picture (I'll show that some other time).
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with him. He has 53 points of articulation (61 if you count
the joints of his wing supports), which is pretty neat.
Anyway, hope you guys like it, and good luck to everyone in the contest! ^_^
PS: The order is a bit odd, sorry about that. I moved a couple of important pics, but the whole uploading order went totally base-over-apex for some reason.
If the entry isn't allowed to be a proper character (as in one that has intelligent thoughts, such as Miserix), then I do have a backup plan, if that's allowed, so please notify me if this will be a problem.
You can see here the pieces that connects the back piece and front piece together, giving the moc a double jointed torso, which I was really pleased with. Unfortunately this pose can't be changed as it's the only pose that'll fit on my display with the other MOCs, so I can't show you the movement. But I'm sure y'all can imagine.
A well-made entry that stands out for sure. However, I have some issues with the head. It doesn't look intimidating enough to suit Miserix. Also, I'm curious as to what you used for the fabric of the wings. In any case, a really solid entry that earns you a well-deserved 7/10. Best of luck :D
Glad you picked up on those issues. I really hate how open and messy the head looks from the sides, and I definitely noticed the colour issues. I could have done without the gunmetal, but I ran out of black. ._.

I think that your works could benefit greatly from a simpler background, even as crude as a monochrome wall.
I know, I wish I had one in my poky house! Well, I do, but they are all in bad places for taking pictures - awkward positioning and truly dreadful/non-existent lighting would have to be fought with. Normally, the white sheet I use here would be fine, but I underestimated the size of the MOC. Thanks though! ^_^
You are clearly a very talented MOCist, but the poor background distracts from the MOC itself. I think that your works could benefit greatly from a simpler background, even as crude as a monochrome wall. I look forward to seeing more from you!
