Yay! My second Mocidversary just past on the 4th of July and I finally got together some photos. Anyways MOVE ONTO THE MOC!!!
About this creation
So this is two new characters, you guys can name the first one but the robot standing next to him is called G3ph3y (pronounced Jeffy). I guess you could say that they are partners in crime. With these characters I wanted to achieve a unique silhouette while having some interest colors.
Now this is a close up on the unnamed character. I really like the whole aspect of having two robotic arms and then two normal arms. I took some inspiration from R0T0R the Hero Factory Villain.
This picture shows how I attached the arms to the back. It isn't that great of a connection but it works, keep in mind I created this one about three months ago and G3ph3y when I watched one of Ben's podcasts and said someone should enter BioCup with the name Jeff.
Now this is another front view but with him in a different pose. It looked better in real life, just like the rest of the photos...
Ah now this is a picture of G3ph3y he has so much detail on the back and front that I tried to bet both in the photo.
Now here you can see the crane piece that is on his back. The whole story about these guys is that the unnamed built G3ph3y out of trash in a junkyard and now they roam the planet stealing from ruins and the like. I am trying to formulate a story but it isn't really working is it? Oh also if you look at his feet you can see that I used one of those socket pieces from the lower half of Makuta that I found a Vinnies. Unfortunately it didn't have the Krakkhan and it only had one of the Avohkii.
Ah, and finally a picture of the Toa Keras, Guardians of the 7 Keras Islands. I revamped all of these characters in a way and even made a new one! They are all going to get their own post. Of I also came up with a sad story while making this post. I am not that great at writing so I am sorry if is bad but it is what I am sticking to right now.
The 7 Keras islands were home to many matoran and rahi. During a malfunction in the Mata Nui like robot, 6 of the seven Islands fell beneath the sea killing thousands of matoran and Toa. They tired to create a dome of glass and get rid of the water but they ran out of oxygen and suffocated. Since no Toa were able to stop the sea pressure from breaking the glass, it caved in and washed away the ruins. Because the robot they were in was dying most of the sea water dried up and left a dessert of salt and iron behind. Although most of the toa and matoran died, those that were on the seventh island survived.
