A new MOC to show as part of my 2 Year MOCAversary!
About this creation
Hello everyone on the Pages!
For those of you expecting Clone Troopers...sorry.
But in more exciting news, guess what this actually is? Could it be? A MOC by PN99? I know what you're thinking, you're thinking "This guy hasn't made a MOC since forever ago," and you would be right, I haven't. To be honest, MOCs from me will probably be few and far between due to my severe lack of parts, but maybe around next year I can get a refuel and start back into it!
Anyways, yea, this is my newest MOC. It's not anything particularly special or even much in the way of progress in skill, but I've grown fond of it.
As a part of my 2 Year MOCAversary, I'm presenting him as a stepping stone into the new year, along with some updates to come later!
Pyritor is a synthetic being created by the Nynrah Ghosts. He is primarily composed of mechanical parts, but his core does contain some organic material, and he seems to possess a spirit as other beings in the Matoran Universe do.
He was intended to be a perfect clone of the universe's most renowned bounty hunter, Auria the Goldhunter. His genetic material was taken from small samples of Auria's, but the samples were fragmented and incomplete. The Ghosts did their best to replicate the rest, but the flaws were too great. Pyritor's programming became corrupt, causing him to go nearly insane.
He fled the island of Nynrah, terrorizing the Southern Continent, all the while replacing bits of his body with scavenged mechanics. He still follows his original directive of finding his "sister" Auria and killing her, but his aim is to complete his genetic material to make himself perfect.
Okay, enough walls of text, here's the MOC:
Side view one.
Side view two.
The nigh only redeemable feature of this MOC, the head.
I was very happy with how this turned out, and about using the Mask of Control!
Torso close up.
Side of the torso. Yea, it's gappy in some places.
Back of the torso. It's supposed to be an air compressor, so it's got pipes and a pressure gauge.
His right arm. Nothing special. It's also a little long, but I sacrificed proper proportions for articulation and maybe a little creep factor to make him look less natural and proper.
His left arm is a hydraulic punching arm run by the air compressor. It's supposed to be an uncompleted version of what Crossbones has in Captain America: Civil War. Love that weapon!
And of course it moves in and out.
Legs. These were the first things I built, before I even knew what I was making. Ignore the red lift arm, or better yet imagine it as an exposed wire.
Excuses for the win.
The backs are horribly exposed. Also, creds to MOCMakerMax on YouTube for the Unity piece on the normal bone technique!
Best part is: they're double jointed! That means he can get some super huge range of motion!
"There wasn't enough of her DNA to complete me, so they tried their best to...fill in the gaps...I helped, of course...."
Hulk Smash / Iron Man pose!
Size comparison, and you can also see the similarities that I actually did not intend originally, but the more I look at it the more similar they are.
Size comparison with Ghar.
"I WILL TAKE FROM YOU WHAT I NEED AS QUICKLY AND PAINFULLY AS POSSIBLE!"
"Broken....damaged...all words to describe how you will be after I'm done with you...."
So, is he particularly good? Not really? Is he kinda cool? I'd say so, in his own way!
Let me know what you think below, and thanks for reading!
Also, 10 points for you if you can catch the reference in the name and its significance!
See you all really soon for more MOCAversary stuff!
Glad to see you're back. This is a cool moc. I especially like how you used the mask of control. His eyes (or eye) is very cool too!
I like it

Nice work! It's good to see another moc from you! I really like this moc, with the larger, more attention-drawing left eye and the smaller, hardly noticeable right one. I also liked the use of the Mask of Control on the head. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the punch arm, primarily due to how much of a large gap is in between them. Why not add a red tube in that gap to make it look like another exposed wire? XP Hope to see more from you!
I really like this guy. Gold and Silver is an underrated combination. and I wouldn't worry about the back if the legs. the articulation far outweighs the aesthetic. Still, he is a little sloppy. a little fine tuning and he's perfect. and fine tuning is what MOCists do best.
