I didn't know where else to put this, so lets go. Not sure if this is allowed but here it is. Moderators correct me if I am wrong about posting this.

 

Here you can share how use use pieces in every way that they are not usually used for. Be it Rahkshi heads for shoulder pads, certain pieces of armor for masks, anything! Of course, keep it appropriate and follow the forum rules.

Minifig space helmets as toes

Ninjago snake as a tongue

Dwarf helmets make a good hammer head

Galaxy Squad cocoons as balloons

 

I actually expected this list to be longer O.o

I like these kinds of unconventional part usages but I'm objectively horrible at it when it comes to using them on my own MOCs.
 
Generally speaking, I like trying to use masks for non-facial purposes (such as armor, or in the torso, or even as feet).

Toa Mata torso as a foot.

(This is a classic) Minifigure arms as BIONICLE fingers.

Tohunga torso as a gun-type weapon.

Feet. Feet everywhere. They produce great curves and fill out most anything. Thighs, torso bulking, back armor, arm connections... lots of uses other than just something to stand on!

In Hero Factory, I love using the small XT-4 torso piece for feet. Combined with the Savage Planet paw piece it forms a simple bestial foot ideal for large creations. The new head from the Brain Attack sets is great for knobby glowing fingertips on large hands, or the ends of insect-like legs. Perhaps most hilariously, the chest armor shell detail from the Super Heroes, HF, or Chima action figures works decently as a chest but also works great as a butt. :P Combined with the rectangular shoulder-armor shell detail from the Super Heroes and HF themes, you can make a shapely posterior while mostly eliminating the typical gap formed around a figure's hip joints.

I tend to make faces and heads out of anything except faces and heads :P

And I slap those Bohrok eye pieces on everything but I never use 'em as eyes, so there's that.

Best. Use. Ever. You actually made me check and see if you ever made any MOCs with that use that you posted one here. That's just amazing!

Classic hands as limbs for Matoran MOCs
Hordika heads for dragon mocs
Toa Nuva shoulder parts for chests, my brother uses them alot for femminine MOCs
2001 Matoran arms for tails and other things like tentacles

Toa Nuva shoulder parts for chests, my brother uses them alot [sic] for femminine [sic] MOCs

I would say something witty about clichés, but I can't think of anything.

 

In a recent abomination, I used disembodied minifigure parts as part of a weapon, and Toa Metru heads as ankles (which works surprisingly well).

Sorry. I know it is a cliché, thought I might mention it because I have seen many people make specifically feminine MOCs and I have never seen anyone use them.

HF 3.0 clubby hand pieces as shoulder and thigh armor.

 

Von Nebula spiky shoulder armor as anime-esque hair.

Most of the time I just play around with a piece to see where it could fit well onto a MOC. Turns out this works well with about any type of piece.

I've come up with a few clever uses for stuff... Hf armor for a face, bohrok feet for a body, hf cores for feet... Phantoka pohatu masks as shoulder pads, swords for wings, hf bodies for bodies... I learned long ago that any part can be used for any function, in the hands of a master builder.
