So I Bought Gresh Today . . .

And I must say he's not all that bad. He's worse than I thought he was, as most sets are, but I do like him. Already I've made a few changed like adding some trans-Neon Green Bohrok eyes to his upper arms [since the Piraka thigh armor pieces are on the back, I thought he needed some lime on the front]. And, I kept the Piraka thighs on the back of his arms like the instructions say to because then his arm has more movement. With the Piraka thighs on the front, he can only bend his arm so much [and gets in the way of some cool posing I tried to do]. I also replaced the Rahkshi legs with Metru legs [on his arms only] to make them shorter than the legs.

I don't like the legs though, and I haven't found anything to do with them. They're too thin, and not at all stable [due to the new joints]. At first I thought to just add Vahki legs, but they're too short and are too thick. They're not that bad, the main thing is that they're not that stable. Once you try to pose him, his legs give in and he falls - at least, sometimes.

I like how the chest sticks out more, but it also leaves a gap between the armor and torso. Ah well.

Overall I'm quite impressed, though. His mask and swords are awesome [especially when used as swords, though I like it as a shield, too] and the Thornax are pretty cool. I'll try to get some pictures up soon, but it was raining today.

Other than that I've written a bit more of my Short Story and it's now just over a page long. I don't think I'm even half way done with it.

Gresh is awesome.

Give him Piraka legs like the prototype had, and then he'll be even better. (That prototype was so amazing in every way. I'm still sad they changed it.) Yes, there's a gap under his chest armor, but you really don't see it unless you're looking at him from the side...

I would, but unfortunately I never bought Zaktan or Karzhani so I don't have any Piraka legs. Though, those would go much nicer.
