My Hero Factory Self MOC is back, armed and ready to neutralise the Villain Breakout! This is my entry for round four of the Hero Factory SelfMOC contest!
About this creation
Okay, so this is for the The Hero Factory SelfMOC contest!, run by my dear friend RaptorTalon ~.
Round 2: Scaler 2.0
Round 3: Scaler 3.0
Round 4:

Cliff Scaler:
Cliff Scaler is a Hero working for the Hero Factory. Though not a particularly skilled fighter, he relies on guerrilla tactics, striking quick, powerful blows and then disappearing from sight. Cliff is mild mannered and introverted. Those who know him well will recognise his energetic yet cynical humour, but he is still admired for his dignified presence, his silence and his intelligence.

Scaler was originally built in the Hero Factory Assembly Tower to showcase the new 2.0 build. However, the designers found him too clunky and awkward for the showcase, and so worked to perfect the look with Evo and Nex. He remained neglected for a few months, before he met Jenna Arrowhead, who he became friends with. Arrowhead, already a prestigious Hero at this time, asked the authorities to assign him to her team. Cliff, along with this new team, was sent to Tanker Station 22 to help the Alpha Team battle Firelord’s gang. Scaler received the 3.0 upgrade, and was sent to Quatros to help battle Witch Doctor, but was called back to base before he could properly contribute.

Cliff’s greatest challenge was during the Villain Breakout, when he was assigned to capture the cat burglar Depravitie. His bulky form was substituted for a slimmer one and he was given a pair of roller-skates. Arrowhead told him that he needed to be fast and quick witted in order to capture Depravitie, a fact which he was nervous about. He found Depravitie in Antropolis city, who tried to escape him on a stolen motorbike. He caught up with her on his roller-skates and jammed his blade into the wheels, destroying them. This was very controversial, as this in itself was a criminal act, i.e. the destruction of property. She was captured, but a lawsuit was filed against the Hero Factory by the original owner. Despite winning this, the Hero Factory still compensated him for the damages.

Any further information on Scaler is currently being reviewed.


So here is the third version of Cliff Scaler, and at the moment it's currently my favourite!

Back.

Scaler's bulky torso has been substituted for a much slimmer, lighter build, helping him to move at high speeds!

His legs have been preserved for the most part, but like the rest of his body, they have been stripped of the bright silver, to ensure no villain will see him coming in the night!

Scaler has been equipped with a Plasma Blaster like all of the heroes in order to slow down any escaping instigators!

He also has a malee weapon attached to his forearm for close range combat, along with the obligitory Hero Cuffs!

Last but certainly not least, Scaler's new body comes with a pair of roller blades, increasing his running speed tenfold!

With my Bionicle Self MOC.

But who's this?

That's riiiiiight!

Depravitie:
Depravitie is a particularly renowned cat-burglar and enemy of the Hero Factory. Although most of her crimes are petty, her uncanny nimbleness and extensive skill mark her as a villain not to be taken lightly. Despite her name, she is far from being truly depraved; Depravitie never seeks to maliciously hurt people, and her desire to steal is fuelled more by thrill seeking rather than greed. She is enthusiastic and energetic, though as a thief she is also capable of being quiet and reserved.

Depravitie was ‘born’ into poverty and raised by a street gang based in Makuhero City, who taught her to steal. After a while it became clear that she was far superior in the art, and she soon left the gang. She had her body upgraded into a tall cat-like form and adopted the persona of Depravitie. She continued stealing for the fun of it for several years until being eventually caught trying to ransack Mr Makuro’s office. She was placed into Villain Storage, but was released shortly afterwards during the Villain Breakout. She wanted to return to her work immediately, but thought it was best to lie low for a while, moving to Antropolis City. She was eventually tracked down by Cliff Scaler, a Hero who had come to arrest her. She tried to escape him by stealing a motorbike, but he managed to catch up to her with a pair of rollerblades, jamming his blade into the wheels, knocking the bike over. She was returned back to Villain Storage.

Depravitie is currently in Villain Storage.

(You can see her actual page here)


So yeah, for this round I had to build two MOCs; one being my Hero and the other being a villain for them to capture! The trouble was that I had specifically designed Depravitie to be Scaler's Breakout villain, not suspecting that it would actually be part of the contest.

There's a rule against entering an already designed MOC into the contest, but I talked to Raptor anyway. He said I could do it as long as I did three things to update her.


The first update was literally that; updates. Little things that I'd change to improve her from the last time. One of the things I did was adding the longest tooth/tail things to the clips on her sides, adding bulk to her torso and also cover up those ugly clips sticking out. I also added an extra barb to her forearms, but that's not important!

I also tidied up her hips, which I liked for the most part with the exception of the sides and the top part. I'm pretty much happy with these now.

I also gave her custom shins, which is probably the most significant thing to her update!

The second update Raptor pushed was to give her a weapon. This isn't really a 'weapon', as I wanted to go for something more appropriate to her character rather than a gun or a sword or something like that. This is essentially a grabber that old people use when they're too stiff to bend down and pick stuff up. No modifications or anything; this is the HF equivalent of that household device. Depravitie uses it, as you might imagine, to steal stuff from a greater distance.

The third update, this was suggested by myself, was to give her a vehicle. Credit is due to the Speeda Demon set, as I used that design as the basis of this, adding my own modifications and aesthetic designs.

I hope you enjoyed that :3

Jenna Arrowhead's team!

Depravitie with Dread's Gang. She's not part of this group, but she is definately an ally of this ensemble of villains.


That's all, folks!

Very nice upgrades to both of them and I love, love, love that motorcycle. The visorak head as the front was a nice touch. And to be honest in that first picture with the grabber stealing Rax's mask I thought that that picture was foreshadowing a Skull Slicer revamp. Good luck in the contest!

Quoting Chains ~ Jeez, I could have sworn I commented on this. Anyway, really nice MOC! It looks different enough from previous versions to look unique, but similar enough to know its the same character. I really like his more smooth colour scheme. The blue and black go really well together. Also, even though they may be a tad silly, the roller skates look pretty cool :P. One thing I don't really like is his lower legs as they look very clunky and messy. It doesn't look that bad from the front but it doesn't look that good from the side. Anyway, it's an awesome MOC that captures the breakout aesthetic very well. Good job!
Thanks! Yeah, those rollerblades are a lot of fun :D I hear you on the shins, they were bugging me, too. I plan to change that by the next version though!
