...what happened to Lemon Club Contest 3? Was it called Lemon Club Challenge? I don't remember
Anyway, your citric task is...
DESIGN A BOHROK/LEMON HYBRID!
Despite the obvious physical impossibilities, imagine a hybrid creature, part Bohrok, part lemon! Then show us your vision!
But how should you do this?
Draw it, MOC it, paint it, create a 3D wireframe model, carve it into a passing rock, whatever visual medium you so prefer.
It cannot be a dance.
So, happy Singles Awareness Day!
Although, this year Seran kind of isn't single, because he's kind of going out with someone...but Seran isn't entirely sure if said guy is really what Seran wants, but yeah. Fun.
I know I said there would be MOCs. I know. But unfortunately I realised that I don't have enough pieces to make the Mata Nui MOC I was hoping to make, although I did get as far as making the head. Pics if you want them. And then there's Makuta, still lying in several pieces, becaus
...no, not the titan version. I'm not stupid, what a waste of money.
THE CANISTER BIT
So, here we go. The canister is, as usual, made from plastic. I didn't have any other canisters to compare it with, so I chose random things from my desk. It's larger than my iPod, yet considerably smaller than my TV. About the same size as a Wii, by the looks of it. I hope that helps. Anyway, it's sort of tapered to one side, with stripey bits o
Bionicle ending. Really? What a surprise.
But nice surprise: Seran hasn't actually stopped MOCing. No. That would be silly.
I am, however, extraordinarily busy until Christmas, but after that we have two weeks of holiday (two weeks after the Christmas holiday, for some reason) so I wouldn't be surprised if I posted a MOC around then.
No promises, but you know. Mata Nui does rather lend himself to being built properly.
Not that I'm that good or anything, but still. You know.
That awesome music from the Mask of Light teaser trailer. Yes.
The full track, obviously, not just the 20 seconds or so from the actual teaser.
Also, if I abandoned Makuta for the moment and built other MOCs, would you guys all cry, be happy, or not care?
Well, it was rather good. Some of it was awful, as expected, but the general awesomeness more than makes up for it. The Fallen's character was majorly disappointing, but then Jetfire was unexpectedly fantastic.
Also, inspiration for bio-mechanical-esque characters? Yay!
Does anyone have any good techniques for making very sturdy joints, especially at the MOC's hips? I don't really want to use the swivel-click joints (Bahrag, Makuta set, Super Battle Droid set), but I can't find a design that works well and still looks good.

Seran went to the cinema today with Emma and Ally. We saw Coraline, it was great. French and Saunders were fantastically mad voice actresses. I felt the film started to fizzle out towards the end, but I was surprisingly satisfied with the way it ended.
About halfway through, I tried the timeless yawn-and-put-your-arm-around-your-friend-move on Ally. She didn't mind. So there you go. I just need to find a guy to try it on now.
Also, if you think I've stopped MOCing, you're wrong.
I very much want to see it. I love films like that.
Also, I made a MOC today.
It is a recoloured Inika with a black Miru and Lhikan's blades.
It entertained me for a short time whilst I was waiting for Disty to make the brain map he STILL hasn't done yet.
Any fan of the game should immediately go and find the official soundtrack by Kyle Gabler, which shouldn't be too hard to find. There's an awful lot of awesome music that wasn't used in the game...the second, never-before-heard part of 'Jelly' is more epic than Mata Nui riding a herd of Kikanalo on stilts across the endless ocean with a dangerously pointy sword and a kettle on his head.
Bah. Delightfully shiny graphics, and lovely glowy effects and stuff, do not make boring character models look...not boring. I preferred the old movie style characters.
Also, I started making an entry for the gun contest thingamajig, but I grew to hate it so I gave it to Makuta to play with. He still lives, just...in a delayed sense of the word.
