Najin was once part of an honorable, warrior clan of decades past. But that clan is no more. He now fights with all his heart to bring peace to the Matoran who live under the unjust and cruel government of the Kiraan clan.
The building techniques used are nothing extraordinary. At least for the arms and legs. They are fairly standard CCBS limbs. However the color combination turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I didn't realize how good Dark Purple and Trans-Blue looked together. The silver also adds a nice touch, giving it a slightly more ironclad look.
However a more interesting design on this MOC would be the torso. I wanted to make a MOC which was purple and trans-blue, and this Ninjago 2011 spinner piece coincided quite well. It has an abstract look of sorts, but I think it gets the job done. He is supposed to look as if he has this samurai-esque bulky suit of armor. This is particularly noticeable on the upper body. Yes, he does have a head under there but I couldn't find a way to actually build it in without it looking weird. I think it turned out pretty solid! Especially for my first MOC to ever be posted online. :D
What do you guys think? Any suggestions? Do you like it or dislike it? (be honest with me, I can take it :D )
