*Gasp!* Xevoz! God, so many childhood memories. Even before I read the part about Xevoz I loved it. Brilliant colour scheme, the head is awesome, and for the most part, it fits together nicely (though there are some areas that could be fleshed out and such).
And I understand how you must have felt, photographing this dude totally last minute.
Yes, Xevoz were awesome. I bought all of the figures from the first wave (some even in multiples, such as Bone Cutter) but it's a shame that figures in the second wave were so rare to find in stores (I only managed to get 3 or 4 of them . . . )
The head design is actually not mine; it's based off of a head from BioRays on Flickr. But I I modified it to have a more insect vibe for Mantodea here, with the antennae and all. Also, what areas do you feel need to be fleshed out on the MOC?
I like your color scheme, with the lime and red. The head is pretty amazing, and the armor on the legs as well. The wings are good, if that's the word to describe it. The waist looks a bit thin in my opinion, though. Still, good luck.
I thought that the trans-green wings fit in well with the lime in his color scheme, and while they're kinda small, they seem to fit well. As for this guy's waist, it unfortunately had to be a little thin at the connection of the Ben 10 torso on his thorax to the Hero Factory torso on his abdomen. Still, wasps have a thin waist, so giving one to a lean, mean praying mantis isn't too much of a stretch.
Thanks for the replies, everyone!
