[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Yeah, it's not incredibly complex. It's essentially a modified version of the torso I use for humanoid creations. The legs and arms are made from[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]scratch as well. I really liked the solid look and feel the original set model had, and I wanted to expand upon that a bit without making it bulky and cumbersome. At first I went with a sleeker design for the arms - a design without the shoulder pads and the connection from the body to the rest of the arm being closer together - but it seemed to be missing something, so I went with this instead. Unfortunately that took away some of the posability, but I think it looks good. I also wanted to go for a kind of limb-swapping thing, with various weapons, spider legs, wheels, etc., but after some time it just seemed a bit too involved for a character that apparantly isn't in the story. :D[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Some inspiration for this came from Samus from the Metroid Series, Dyson from the TV series TRON: Uprising ([shameless plug]which is an incredibly well-written, well-[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]designed show and is also incredibly underviewed [/shameless plug]), and Lockdown from Transformers: Animated. [/font]

Overall, this looks very nice. The torso seems somewhat ingenious on your part. I'll give it a 10/10. :)


Also, as a side note, I believe that Core Hunter had almost an entire book dedicated to him.

His midsection looks a wee bit too thin but everything else is super-duper! I've actually considered making a revamp of him as well but alas; time has failed me :( I spent the entire vacation playing Assassin's Creed III and I think it's going to reflect on my grades this semester :PMy carelessness aside, great MOC! :tohu:

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks The Forgotten One. :) I really wanted to give it more mobility compared to the original set, as well as give it more length and solidity.[/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks Cratak. :) I guess that's what I get for not really looking into the story. :P I'm glad you like the torso; that was actually probably the most difficult part because I wanted to try to keep the proportions correct. I just wish that the Hordika neck pieces came in black instead of just gray.[/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks DARKSIDERZ. :) Yeah, it's just a little too thin in the mid section for my liking, but unfortunately I don't know if there is really any way to flesh it out just a little more because of the construction.[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Oh, and it's great to just play video games during break, that's what I mostly did. That, and build this; I just worked a little on it each day. :P[/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks again guys. :)[/font]

Looks really good. I like the build of the Hero Core Remover and the blaster. The torso also looks great although it's a bit too thin on the middle part. Other than that, awesome job on this!

This looks great!  His body has almost the same design as for my revamps of the toa mata.  I also love the blaster design.  Great job!

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks Spiritmaster Veigar. :) Yeah, the torso is a little thin in the middle. You know, though, after giving it some thought, I kind of like how it's just a little thin; not too much, of course, but it gives off a muscular feel to the rest of the torso. With the wider arms and thinner waist, then, it has a nice overall shape to it. I'm not justifying it, but I like it. :P[/font]


[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks pikmin 73. :) I've used this kind of basic torso design a bit longer than I should, but it allows for quite a bit of adaptability, which I like. In a way it's kind of like a skeleton of sorts, and I can just change it enough where I still have the basic design yet it's different enough for it to not be as noticable. I'm glad you like the blaster. I was thinking of adding on some spikes on the front, somewhat akin to twin bayonets, but then I thought that might be a little overkill, plus I wanted to keep the concept the same as the one Samus has.[/font]
