Bionicle... been a bit since I posted one hey. Not a story MOC this time
I really played a lot with colour scheme on this, I added in Dark Bluish grey at a point, but honestly it didn't work
Keen to make some Rahi and I really want to make a Knight or Samurai style build. Thinking I may make some story characters fit that look
I gave her big shoes, They used to be way bigger cause I wanted a sort of funny/cute cartoon like shoe design
Glad I used the Brickhead eyes on her, still have so many mixel eyes and need to use those
So Infinity War... I will spoil nothing but I've seen it twice already, absolutely incredible!
Hey who is excited for Solo? I am getting more and more hyped each day! I can't freaking wait!
I doubt it, but I would love to see a live action Hondo Ohnaka in Solo. He'd fit well, and it be great to see him next to Han. I know it's not that likely... but I can dream Harold!
Oh and Star Wars Resistance! Ohhhh man that will be so good. Oh and of course Rebels characters will be back, might not be for a bit, but they will be for sure.
Man talking so much Star Wars on a Bionicle Post haha :P
Here she is with a Light Bulb, don't forget to check out the Bionicle Inspiration Series on my Yotube if you haven't yet by the way!
Fourth Wall Commentary:
Played around once again with the more modern system/CCBS hybrid style of Bionicle. I always prefer to build in the more classic way, just because it's fun for me, but hey you know playing around with this style has been great fun and I'd love to do more of it.
Really happy with the hair on this MOC, I think it turned out awesome. Obviously huge inspiration on this one from Djokson, specifically from his MOC Tsukiko https://www.flickr.com/photos/djokson/28142957022/in/dateposted/
Star Wars Resistance is the new Dave Filoni Animated show :) Also thanks for another awesome long comment MC. I agree we need those voices for those characters... that said to be honest I would be open to a different voice for Ahsoka. I wouldn't love the idea, but I'd be open to it (but it would take a miracle to find a substitute.
Perhaps this MOC comes from experience. During her demon phase (13-14 yo), my daughter would totally -- and fiercely -- have worn that outfit and hairdo. Thankfully, she outgrew all that. Well done! The skirt alone is a marvel.
Super cute. It was pretty obvious it was inspired by Djokson, which by the way, it's just a URL, not a link, you may want to edit your fourth wall. Also, no story is not a bad thing. I know I can write a lot, but I tend to write on my MOCs more about processes or ideas behind why I built things the way I did, not so much a storyline. I like that you changed your mind about using gray, it would have just really cluttered things in such a small MOC. I see you used the Praetorian Guard armor. I'm not sure if that bow is required, it feels a little out of place. Maybe if it was a different color than the lavender. Maybe just the flower was all you needed. If you have a red flower and a keetorange bow, that might work a lot better. Okay, now into the good stuff. Infinity War was great. To avoid spoiling anything for anyone else reading this, I will refrain from saying anything further. I'm getting excited for Solo, too. While I don't feel it is necessary at all, the trailers have been edited in a way that makes me think it has a chance of being good, and I'm really just looking to have fun at this point. That's all I'm asking is for it to be fun. If Hondo was ever in a movie, it would have to be one of those situations where you have an actor on set whose lines are then dubbed because as much as I want to see Hondo make an appearance one day, he can't be voiced by anyone other than Jim Cummings. Same with Ahsoka. If she is ever to be given a role in a movie, it can't really be anyone other than Ashley Eckstein that plays her, and I mean, Ashley needs to be on set in full makeup, we're not going the dubbing route with Ahsoka. Nice asdf movie reference by the way. And as for Resistance... I only have faith in it because of Dave Filoni and the continuing crew from Clone Wars and Rebels. I imagine it will be similar to Rebels in the sense that we will occasionally get cameos of Rebels characters, but more so at the end of the first Season, they're going to drop the Ezra or Thrawn reveal and then we're off to the races all of Season 2. We need to get some Ahsoka and Luke and Ezra interaction and have some conflicting philosophies that will then push Luke even further to going into isolation when Ben ruins everything. Even if it's all done in flashbacks, or we go a bit of the Clone Wars route and have it be a bit of an anthology show, we need things tidied up. Have some of the threads off Rebels tied up and then get back to the new characters. Also, THIS FALL! That was fast. I wasn't expecting anything until next year, and it may be like Rebels were the first two episodes are a "movie" and then the actual Season doesn't begin until a few months later. They're going to need some positive reactions for Disney to give it more episodes to get the stories we really want. Okay, another super long comment when I was originally just going to give quick little sentence fragments, but I guess not.
Nice shaping and colors! The way you used those translucent pieces for the hair reminded me of anime and all their crazy hair colors. Great use of the brickhead eyes. This moc seemed to use some techniques on some of Dave Foreman mocs. I really like what you have done here and hope you expand on this concept or style of building as I think it could help you become a better builder. You know what they say, the more skills an assassin is the better they will do the job.
