From the depths of Space and Time comes greatest heroes ever known before Bionicle began!
There's not much known about them, but Slizers (also known as Throwbots) won my heart from the first time I saw them in the catalogue.
After all these years, when I no longer possess any of the original sets, I decided to give a new life to once beloved characters. These MOCs are not targeted for intense game therefore there is no cogs and throwing discs. But instead, it's a mixture of brick-built bodies and Hero Factory limbs, combined together to bring the ultimate line of action figures, inspired by long-lost Lego theme, to life!
Behold! The Mini-Slizer!
Let's start from original eight Slizers, main antagonists/protagonists of the theme, caught in endless struggle over Planet Slizer and it's seven regions and Dome City.
Mini-Slizer - Torch by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Sturdy hunchback Torch roams his fiery region, looking for any fuel he can consume. He uses his disc throwing hand and twin flamethrower to repel attacks of furious Lava Elementals.
Mini-Slizer - Scuba by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Scuba, the dweller of depth. He is riding torrents and streams in search for precious pearls. His diving suit and harpoon gun allows Scuba to easily avoid encounters with giant brain jellyfishes and other horrible monsters of water region.
Mini-Slizer - Ice by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Ice lives in an eternal movement, always descending from higher peaks of ice region on his trusty skis. Although his skiing pole is not the most intimidating weapon, he rarely get himself in a fight, preferring fast and daring escapes.
Mini-Slizer - Turbo Car by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Turbo, the city Slizer. Likes speed more than anything, that's probably why he's in good relationship with his neighbor Ice. If not for limited supplies of fuel, Turbo would race with monster trucks and wind forever.
Mini-Slizer - Turbo Robot by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Turbo also can transform himself into a bipedal form to communicate better with his teammates, but he prefers his car form over this one.
Mini-Slizer - Judge by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Judge (aka Jet) is cunning and ominous adversary. He uses double throwing arms and twin rotor propellers to patrol Dome City from air, searching for tresspassers.
Mini-Slizer - Amazon by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Amazon, the feral Jungle Slizer, is renown hunter, fearless and cold-blooded. He uses his katana both for cutting agressive treants in the swamps of jungle region and for cutting enemy limbs.
Mini-Slizer - Electro by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Electro is more of an insect than a complete sentient Slizer, but it doesn't mean that he cannot outwit and electrify his prey. He feels better in the streams of Energy, constantly furrowing his region.
Mini-Slizer - Granite by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Granite is a crafty miner. He cannot stop digging, given that it's his only true passion. He even has small drills on his legs for more digging.
But at beginning of another millennium, out of nowhere appeared a giant asteroid that smashed into a Slizer Planet, destroying Energy, Jungle and Mountain regions.
From the ashes rose horrible abominations, Mutants. Blinded by rage, they began their crusade on remaining Slizer.
Mini-Slizer - Mutants - Flare 1 by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Flare, the 'youngest' member of mutant team. Her actions determined not by her actual age, but by her dare-devil attitude. She always on the fly, enjoying diving on unaware enemy and snatching him by her sharp bird-like claws.
Mini-Slizer - Mutants - Spark by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Spark is cold-blooded as Amazon and Electro combined together (probably, she really is merged from those two). She possesses an arm shield that she uses to reflect any incoming shots back to her foes.
Mini-Slizer - Mutants - Blaster by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
Blaster, unofficial leader of Mutants, biggest and baddest of them all. A towering brute, that can crush a Lava Element by flinging at it discs generated by his double throwing arm.
Mini-Slizer - Millenium by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
This Slizer do not know his past. Others know him as Millenium: a lone rider on the crushed roads of city region. Nobody have seen him without his abnormal bike. Scuba assumes that Millenium is not a Slizer, nor a Mutant, but something in between. He seem to struggle against transformation processes in his body, unwilling to become one of Blaster's gang, but he never officially opposed them in battle.
That's pretty much all! I owe some special thanks to LewiTaur (aka LewiMOCs) for inspiring me with his LDD Slizer MOCs.
Ah yes, forgot to mention.
The models of Slizers (except for Mutants for now) are official character designs for Russian Project Slizer.
