Name Change? Also Moc Idea...

Posted by GreenBioGuy , Dec 20 2009 · 44 views

Ok, so I was wondering what you guys thought to changing my name to Samus Aran. Sure, I know that she's a her and I'm a him, but I love her series and character. I know that GreenBioGuy is unique and more... Bioniclish, but I thought it'd be cool to be known as a video game character. Or do you think that I'm already known as GBG the way it is? The thing is, DV named himself after a famous movie character, but on the flip side awesome guys like Blue Diamond and Shan came up with completely unique names for themselves. Note that my aim has never to become a "famous" MoCists by any means, and I'm not trying to attach a name to that. But the thing is, I haven't changed my name once since I joined up here, except for at the beginning when I went from greenbionicleguy to ~GreenBioGuy~. Not that big of a difference. I think it'd be kinda epic, and I could also imprint a faint form of Samus' helmet into my MoC images (like DV does with his photos).

Thoughts?

Also, I had the inspiration to build MoC after this guy:

It's Ghor from Prime 3.

He looks very Bioniclish, to be sure. Thoughts there?
I'll have to wait until after my current project (which resumes tomorrow, btw), but I like to think ahead. wink.gif

Seems like it would be hard to stand up, but I guess you could always make a stand for it.

Also Aero Slicers (Matau's Toa Metru tool) for the legs/feet kthxbai.

That would be great if you made a MOC based on that thing.

lol. Ok. rolleyes.gif
Besides, it would be a spin-off and therefor not the actual character anyway. ;)

GBG is pretty darn iconic, FYI. If you changed your name, how am I supposed to remember who you are? DV, Shan, Arpy, BD, ToM rarely, if ever, change their names.

Also, DV was Kopakashau before he changed to DV. Kopakashau is incredibly hard to remember and type. DV is not. DV has a ring to it.

Samus Aran doesn't have a ring to it. On the other hand, GBG does.

Well, DV and Shan and I haven't been able to change our names for quite a while, and now Arpy can't either. Comes with being stafffolk. I'd have changed to Tiome by now if I were able to.

Also, I like you as GreenBioGuy. But when I saw the entry title, the first thing that came to my mind as an idea was 'BioGreen'. I'm not sure why.

It honestly just sounds like you are trying to copy DV, but do what you want. I change my name as often as possible, but that's because people don't recognize me anymore.

I'm fine with you changing to Samus though, and I'm in full support of it.

Or just do GBG or gbg lowercase is always cool.

On the name change: personally, I think you're fine as ~GreenBioGuy~.

On MOCing Ghor: creating an armorsuit/ship that he actually merges with would be a must, your realize?

If you're a Metroid fan: I'd like to direct you here ([/blatantself-endorsement]).

Nah, stay as ~GBG~. We all know you as that, and you should stick with it, like I'm doing for my name.

You shouldn't, IMO. You and Laka need to keep Draco/N/Neaku and Kopakalaka, IMO.

And, ~GBG~, you're known already as GBG. Personally I like your name the way it is, and I think you should keep it, but ultimately it's up to you.

Hey, are you going to make Ghor's mech too?
