Well, here is version 1.0 of my entry for the Makuta contest, as promised in http://www.bzpower.c...my-compatriots/
NOTE: Some spoilers for the final episodes to Journey to One are contained in this post.
Posted at Flickr since I can't figure out how to upload my photos to BZPower.
As I'd stated in my previous thread, I noticed that most of the Makuta MOCs being produced for the Building Contest looked like variations on the Shadow Titan designs for Makuta of both G1 and G2 or other humanoid forms, usually with black, red, and gold being prominent colors. I wanted to get away from that for my entry, and had a thought: what if Makuta had mutated into a creature well suited to terrorize the Region of Stone? I also wanted to try producing a BIONICLE version of a creature that hadn't really been adapted into the mythos yet, and came up with a centipede. If you'll look it doesn't match the exact specifications, but hey, we're talking about a universe where bulls and tigers have a tread in place of back legs and where spiders can have four or six legs as opposed to eight.
It's my first real attempt at a MOC, and I kinda just pieced together by cannibalizing various sets:
- Pohatu Mata
- Pohatu Nuva
- Pahrak Kal
- Onewa Metru
- Onewa Hordika
- Zesk? (can't remember if I actually used any of its pieces in the end)
- Mata Nui (stole his unhelmeted Glatorian head to do blue eyes instead of red, a little nod to 2003 Teridax)
Well, here it is, hope you like it, and don't hesitate to criticize or advise. I know I've got time left in which to enter, and I can use that time to improve this thing. Also, if anybody knows how to get photos uploaded direct to BZPower, I'd love to know.
EDIT: Based on some of the feedback I received, I've tweaked the design somewhat-bulking up the body and moving some limbs around. New gallery for version 2.0 can be viewed here:
