Scaler (Brain Attack)
You guys know the drill- Cliff Scaler, Hero Self MOC, blah blah blah... This time though, he wears the Brain Attack armour!
About this creation
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: Scaler (Breakout)
Round 5:

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.

Scaler played a minor part in the Brain Attack on Makuhero City, taking out several loose Brain parasites and also battling the Simiasaur, an animal mutated by the Brains.

Any further information on Scaler is currently being reviewed.


BOOM! Front.

Back.

I imagine that not many people would like the inclusion of Exo Force clips on the core locking clamps, but I like how they encircle the H, allowing it to stick out more.

The legs are virtually the same, despite changing the armour. I actually fixed the ankles too, so they don't look quite as awkward.

Scaler was equipped with a small hammer, allowing him to demobilise brains with greater efficiency.

He was also armed with tranquilisers, in case the beasts could not be sufficiently contained.

He also has a shield attached to his forearm, to block any blows from the monsters.

It was unfortunate that I couldn't use a helmet that was more like his Breakout one, but this was the closest thing that was made. (I didn't want to use the Surge helmet)

With Raxonax!

Depravitie's return!

Scaler spent most of the Brain Attack immobilising loose brains, stopping them from infecting any civilians or heroes.

That was, until he met this:

The Simiasaur:
The Simiasaurs, or “Monkey Lizards” as they are called by the less sophisticated, are a race of reptilian herbivores that live in the Makuhero Belt, specifically in the same jungles occupied by the Ogrum ogres. They are extremely strong and fast, and though they are for the most part docile, close contact is not recommended. They are energetic and playful creatures, despite their massive size.

The Simiasaurs were once a prosperous species that lived in the Makuhero belt and were considered the dominant race of the entire area. After the robots moved in, however, the Simiasaur population was reduced drastically as they tried to attack these new settlers, whose advanced weaponry quickly dispatched them. Fortunately, many NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organisations) emerged that protected the remaining Simiasaurs from harm.

The beasts enjoyed many years under protection as an endangered species, until the Brain Attack of Makuhero City. The creatures put up a hefty fight, killing many of the brains, but unfortunately one was infected by one of the parasites. The Brains decided that a lone Simiasaur was enough, and sent the monster on his way to the city. He was considered quite a detriment to the heroes, destroying much property and even killing a couple of civilians, but fortunately the thing was freed by Cliff Scaler, who immobilised the Brain after a fierce but brief battle. The Simiasaur was deported back to the jungle it came from.

The Simiasaurs continue to live in the Makuhero Belt, their numbers low but steady.

Profile.

On all fours!

Waist articulation and a moving jaw! What more could you ask for?

Battling a new Torm member! You can see more of him here!

Comparison with Skull Scorpio.

Scaler's battle with the Simiasaur was very intense; the Hero seemed to have finally met his match!

He turned the tide quickly though with a vicious blow from his mighty hammer!

Hey look, my villain doesn't look completely naked without his Brain Parasite! That's gotta count for something!

The Onua Mistika mask didn't quite fit onto the Brain Attack skull with the brain parasite, so I had to build a bit of an extension for it to work. That's how I got the lower jaw in, too.

Scaler facing Dread.

Arrowhead's team!


That's all folks! Good luck to all who entered! :)

Quoting Toa Gaim Junk Lord(gentle): *blinks in surprise* Okay...? Do you know anything about a group who call themselves the Dark Hunters? Junk Lord(violent): Because we got invited to join them, even through I don't mind a pay check.
Depravitie: "Good for you. I don't like groups."

Quoting Toa Gaim Junk Lord(violent): Oh no you don't!*stopped her from leaving* Look me in the eyes and tell me that you're telling truth. *give her a serious look* Junk Lord(gentle): Or do you want to risk having us to law enforcement on your whereabouts? Think carefully.
Depravitie:" Eeeh, you're too serious. If it's a kiss you want then a kiss you'll get *peck* You're no fun! *sulk*"

Quoting Toa Gaim Awesome mocs! I wonder what his invasion from below look will be like? Junk Lord(gentle): There you are cat lady! Junk Lord(violent): You have some nerve leaving your debt left unpaid. -_-# Give me one good reason not to blast all of your nine lives. Junk lord(gentle): My violent half doesn't like being lied to.
Thanks Gaim! (Depravitie: "Soweez, I had to go away on urgent business. Oh, and there it is again; byyye! ;3")

Quoting Chains ~ Awesome job man! They both look really good! Scaler fits the athestetic very well and I don't really mind the bulk helmet. The lower legs look better this time around. His shield looks nice as well. The Simiasaur looks quite good as well. I like his colour scheme and how the brain fits in. However I think the opening jaw looks a bit strange and not very jaw like and the chest piece breaks the colour scheme. Other than that though, these MOCs are very good. Good luck!
Thanks man! I'm glad you don't mind the helmet; I understand why people do, but I think it has its bizzare charm. I was worried though that it wouldn't resemble Scaler too much. I'm glad you also like the Simiasaur, too. Strange, Raptor wasn't keen on the jaw either; I thought it looked good myself, but that's probably just me. Yeah, the chest piece is also odd, but I think I used up all my plain ones. Thanks again!

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ I get that, but when it is open it looks a little..strange...May just be me.
It might possibly be that it's a bit too far forward, but there's nothing I could really do about that in terms of the build.

How'd you mean? It's diet consists of weak vegitation, if that's of any benefit.
