So, this guy was uploaded towards the end of August/beginning of September. Got erased due to the downtime. I've been wanting to re-upload the MOC because I feel it's one of my few tangible accomplishments when it comes to MOCing. He's also my Self-MOC.
"All Lumi must die. When a Lumi has fulfilled his purpose in this Universe, his Vessel form is taken to the birthplace of his Ancestors, where he is given enough energy and time to carve out his own burial chamber. No-one else is there to grieve his death, and he passes on, unlamented.
Our tragic hero, after being "killed" in Phantom Terror's The Adventures of Sandstorm, is taken to his Home Planet, where he witnesses the deserted ruins of his Predecessors, marvelling at the sights of the enormous structures they had constructed in the peak of their civilization.
He journeys on to his House's burial grounds. He sees his Wall, the wall he must tear down to bring his weakened body to eternal rest. He picks up the Hammer, the sacred artifact that the Lumi use to destroy the wall, which is rebuilt as soon as the Lumi is in his chamber, and has closed his eyes one last time. However, the Hammer disappears in a blinding flash of light. A light that even a Being of the Light cannot bear to witness.
He is transported to a massive, dark, dome-shaped chamber, with only a pillar of light in its center, shining at a statue that bears significant resemblance to our hero. Much larger in size, and with mysterious-looking armor of crimson and gold.
A thunderous voice breaks the deafening silence.
"You have not yet fulfilled your purpose, Sevla. Now, don the Paladin's Armor, and rise to your Destiny."
Baffled, Sevla looks around frantically to try and locate the source of this sound.
Another flash of blinding light takes him by surprise. Suddenly, Sevla is Reanimated. In his hand, a glorious Claymore is held. It has the word Belligerence engraved upon its blade. Sevla now knows what he must do to finally fulfill his purpose, and save the remaining Lumi from the fate that awaits them."
This is a little different from the previous back story, but I feel that this one is written in a slightly more mature style.
Now, onto the MOC. I really love what I've done with it. There are many techniques I've used here unlike anything else I've ever done. This is thanks to a Bricklink order that I've made at the start of last summer. I now have plenty of pearl gold, as opposed to none at all previously
The proportions kind of remind me of Optimus Prime for some reason. Don't ask me why I said that. Just in case someone says something about the freakishly long legs (Which I actually happen to like on this guy.)
I was very pleased with how he ended up looking, but I still think there's room for improvement. Perhaps stronger joints and a bit more streamlining will do him great. I'm eager to know what you guys think, so C&C as always!
Stay tuned for more MOC's till the end of January, including a PBZP and an apology MOC (Chro will know what I'm talking about)
