Finally posting this here, a bit delayed since MOCpages crashed like a ton of arthritic bricks.
About this creation

Xplode was my first HF villain set, and Iíve been wanting to do a revamp of him for quite a while. So once I finished Thonk, I decided to try tackling something a bit smaller, more simple. A nice change of pace.


So of course I almost doubled the amount of spikes and gave him a giant spiky buster sword.




I had considered using a more tame and faithful alternative for his mace-ax-club-sword-thingamajig but I felt like he called for something heavier. Plus I had ordered three extra blade pieces that I didnít want laying around.








Another change was the beefiness of it all. I kinda liked the idea that Xplode had upgraded himself to take a few more hits. Since the Heroes had gotten more and more powerful, it only made sense that Xplode - one of the best at the whole ďCriminal for hireĒ gig, would have made himself more endurant and powerful to stay competitive.






I did leave his meteor blaster alone, because I feel like thatís the sort of weapon heíd like to be quick and maneuverable. Something you can be quick on the draw with, rather than have a giant cannon to lug around.




Overall this MOC certainly isnít my best, but it was never meant to be. Itís just a fun little dive back into my childhood, and into some simpler techniques and styles. It was nostalgic, while also refreshing. Iíll definitely be doing more MOCís like this in the future.

Thank you for checking out my stuff! And have a great day!
