The legs definitely need a lot of work. I stink at legs for most of my creations, and I am suprised this one didn't topple over. I will probably go back and redesign those. As for the arms, I spent maybe 30 seconds on them. I am not sure what I can do with them exactly, but maybe I can do something with the springs from the Tarakava I got at a garage sale. But they do punch.
Phew, I thought you stole my idea right from my head for a second there. I've also been thinking about an Alternate Universe with the Bohrok (who also have been a theme here for a while now), and I was relieved it was just the Boxors! That secret's safe for a while. :biggrin:Anyways, for the MOCs:WRESTLAR: The armored body looks very cool, and a Pakari was a good choice here for the mask, as it just flows with the lines. The Matoran could easily be a part of the WRESTLAR. The legs are also very cool, it's nice to see you really did use a lot of Bohrok pieces to make it seem like it's built from them. Really, the only complaints I have for this MOC are the ball joints sticking out on the legs, which I think should be covered by something, and the arms are not quite what I'd expect. The function looks like it works very nicely, and I see what you were going for, I just think it's a little thin, and could be bulked up. The attachments also bug me for some reason, although I half think it looks fine. Still a very cool MOC!
I would be worried if you didn't spot similarities, because it is basically the original boxor with a different top , matoran cradle, and larger legs/bigger feet. The levers don't actually do anything (sadly), I just put them there becasue I didn't want the arms just dangling and doing nothing. When I revise this one, I will definitely keep that in mind. Also, I don't think I have any armor that I could use on the arms. I only got the green inka (N-something, right?), and that wouldn't really match the color scheeme. I suppose some of the black kneepads from 2004 might help a little, but not much.
BOXOR 3.2: I can really see the similarities with the original Boxor here, and it looks good. The new color scheme works well. The covering looks very nice over the Matoran, and I really like those feet with the Bohrok teeth. The levers for the Matoran are definitely my favorite part, just because it's a nice small detail. Do they do anything? The only thing I'm not sure about on this MOC is the thinness of the arms and legs. Either make them shorter, or bulk it up a lot. Even something like Inika thigh armor might do the trick.
I will take that into consideration. The hardest part is making it open up and house the krana, while still looking good on all sides. I also can't find what happened to my yellow hau. The good news is that I have a lot of technic peices in yellow becuase my first technic set (which I got at the same time as the six toa metru) was a yellow excavator. Within the past 3 years I got the telehandler, and mini telehandler. The chest is made from peices of the latter.And thanks for reminding me about spoilers.EDIT: Story's up.
Krana Guy: Actually, not as bad as you might say. The color scheme is very cool, and I really like the body design. Maybe some larger arms would be nice, and space out the waist a bit more.
