This was first built in October of last year, but I recently got around to taking some proper pictures of it, so I decided it's time to post it.

Wow, this looks incredible! Great job on this revamp.

 

I especially like the rhotuka launcher, though the whole body is well done.

 

I sure wouldn't want a horde of these invading my city.

I like this version of the white Visorak. It really looks like a spider with the abdomen. Though can the rhotuka be launched?

 

Nice work on this revamp.

*wipes a tear away* That is just quite amazing. I mean it truly captures the suukorak. The way you have the head design it truly looks like it. Will admit it looks far more arachnid like than the original one especially where you have the spinner.

Beautiful re-imagining. The body is quite spectacular.

 

Though I can't help but think you could really have improved the abdomen so that the Rhotuka spinner isn't just sitting there. The body is really cool and detailed, so it stand to reason you have the ability to do the same with the butt. Make it wickedly designed AS WELL as functional.

No, the spinner doesn't work.

I briefly considered how to make it work, but what it comes down to is that this was a bit of a rush build and I am one of those that really doesn't care about functionality; I'm all about aesthetics with maybe some effort put into poseability (which ends up being aesthetics because I want to achieve good looking poses).

To go into detail: Accommodating the launching mechanism would be slightly more complicated and would not look as good, especially from the bottom. The Bohrok bodies would have to be separated by a unit, and as a result the Rahkshi back curve wouldn't be quite as pretty. And the underside armor wouldn't be as snug because it would have to account for the ripcord.

 

Everyone else, thanks.

That is just awesome. It looks like the set one but... better. :P

 

And it also looks more movie accurate. Kind of.

Very nicely done! You captures the concept of a Suukorak very well, and the use of Rahkshi and Bohrok parts is incredible! So, here's a little something for you:Link

[color=#000080;][font="'lucida sans unicode', 'lucida grande', sans-serif;"]ooohhhhhh god yes, that's a crazy good vissy remake right thereseriously i'm in awe of that head, nice shaping all round (especially with the mahri blades)i also like the fact you kept the legs relatively simple, i think if you made them any beefier it would've detracted from the visorak-ness of the MOC tbh[/color][/font]

Oh my god, that's a great revamp. Why wasn't the set like this in the first place?

It would be too expensive to manufacture in the ways that they did with the original Suukorak, but they could've done ultrabuilds.

That's Amazing! One question: how long did it take to build? I'm guessing it took awhile.

With the abdomen separated from the head, I say you've created a better arachnid then lego. Hurray for anatomical correctness!  Nice work.

I really dig the custom body, especially how you incorporated the Rhotuka on the abdomen. Would be cool if it could be launched.
