Posted ImageHe is ready to dance the night away.I'm having some fun just building MOCs based off of the BZP peeps I've made over the years. It was kind of just a quick goof thing at first (Smeag, B6), but then I built a MOC for Tufi (I'll get photos eventually), and now here's a Janus. I've got three others in various states of mid-build. None of these are super "serious" MOCs, more just fun case studies in the usual humanoid builds. This one (Janus) was meant to kind of represent the whole "2003/4" style of humanoid build popular in our community (and also because lol I think that's the last time Rob built something), but updated with modern sensibilities and techniques- not to mention part selection. I also wanted to see how far into the action figure "look" I could achieve, which basically makes it the exact opposite of the aesthetic spectrum when it comes to parts use that I built Sarge and even Catwoman on. I keep looking at this one on the shelf and thinking it reminds me of some weird Gundam/Digimon/CartoonNetwork show toy. Which I guess means mission accomplished?I played around with some staff designs or a big axe, but in the end I couldn't find anything but the stowed-swords-as-armoured-"wings" look I liked for the MOC.Probably not entirely apparent in the photos, but this MOC has a different shoulder connection than I've used before, and it allows for the MOC to do things such as shrug his shoulders. Which is neat, I suppose.Knees bend, but the studio backdrop was refusing to sit level and I got tired of trying to get a photo of him at midnight on that not-level surface without the photo looking bad so whatever. You get a back shot. Be happy with what you get! Angle of the photos tends to squat him down a bit, he's actually pretty lanky. I tried to take photos from a lower angle to make him look a but more devious, but it only made him look fat. C'est la vie.Feet are supposed to be cloven hooves, sometimes I look over and think they look awesome, other times I hate them. They will not be changed, because seriously, me update a MOC after posting it? Not likely. But per the usual, ideas and suggestions get worked into future things.Posted Image | Posted Image | Posted Image | Posted Image | Posted Image

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Wow, I really like how you pulled off the entire look of it.[/font]

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]And yes, it does kind of remind me of Gundam.[/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Nice work![/font]

This is me.  I am immortalized in LEGO form, this is a thing a beauty and joy and glory.  I love this thing (and the green version is pretty also!)

 

Also while I don't usually visualize myself with a Miru, I have to say that this actually pulls it off.  Plus my sword wings are awesome and beautiful and lovely.

 

Pat you are a lovely human being and I am terrible at responding and thing.

 

I LOVE YOU AND I'M SORRY.

Great color and proportions. Excellent legs, heck the whole thing is excellent. Criticisms ?  maybe less grey but if you don'y have the yellow or blue you need, no problem :)

Holy wow BFS you're still alive and kicking? The gunmetal is purposeful, however. (Also hi I used to be Darth Vader remember me?)

 

And Rob you are a BUTT but I'm glad you like the Miru. I'm trying not to give everyone kakamas, but everyone loves kakamas. What can you do.
