Troddon, the Poor and Disadvantaged

“Neither these bonds nor I can be broken... Pity I can’t say the same about you, runt.”
 
 
Once a labourer, then slave, then test subject; bound in manacles engineered to be completely immune to physical or conjured force, Troddon barely endured his tribulations.
Now free solely by being overlooked in an administration error: he is nobody. Nothing.
 
Yet - tired, half-blind, shackled and alone - dragging the entirety of his burden with him, Troddon plods onward with a whimsical grin on his face. 
Not because of any idealistic, puerile hope for a brighter future; when not only the world, but fate itself is against you, there can be no light in a tunnel that has no end.
 
He gets up and carries on, simply because while he does: he hasn’t lost.

Thought I'd make a Self-MOC that’s representative of an in-universe species that’s not yet-another-blimmin-Toa, so here’s a Skakdi (Piraka). 
 
Had a blast with the colours, especially the Metallic Blue, and blocking the black to represent skin – these abs are plastic-hard.

Very impressive.  I love how you went the extra mile in some of the little details, like that green face-belt or the dead eye.  Only complaints I can think of are that the bindings seem a bit too blocky for my tastes and the neck appears to be rather thick.


I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

Simply put I love this. I can't find any real flaws, completely solid of a build. I especially love the metal blue as I'm a sucker for it.

 

Very inspirational.

Amazing! It's a really original idea and the first self-MOC I have seen that really has significance. The construction of the face is wonderfully creative, and you used the Piraka spine, a piece I always struggled with. Nice work!
