Mordegrist is the last MOC I have to post from BrickFair. At Bricks Cascade I was given a collectible minifig that turned out to be the sleepyhead with his teddy bear. I was somehow inspired to create a MOC around him, and ended up with this. The idea is that he lives in the dream world and protects the boy from nightmares while he's asleep, as his MOC cased indicated:
The destroyer of nightmares. If you were having bad dreams, wouldn't you want this guy looking out for you too?
Not many people seemed to read it though, as there were lots of comments on, 'that monster eating the boy.' Oh well.
I really like how he came out. I think the different shades of grey and silver work well and the splashes of red and blue (the minifig) add some nice contrast. The armor is placed on the him to work in this one particular pose, and in some areas his range of movement is pretty restricted as a result. But that was part of the design and done to make him look as un-hollow as I could.
And of course, you can see all the images in my BrickFair 2012 gallery.
