In addition to Kit Martello, I've built a number of smaller Hero Factory MOCs over the past several months. I figure it's about time I shared some of them. None are quite as impressive or well-refined as Kit, but I chose to photograph these because they use some clever techniques and I'm quite proud of them. The first two MOCs are digital, the rest made with physical bricks.Alternate views of most of the MOCs in this topic can be viewed in the [color=#3366ff;]Flick[/color][color=#ff3366;]r[/color] gallery. All images below link to larger versions. 

BrimstonePosted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I built Brimstone with LEGO Digital Designer last semester as an experiment in certain armor combinations, particularly the Super Heroes chest piece and the 1.0 Hero Factory torso beam. She is supposed to be female, although that may not be apparent due to her generic mask and wide shoulders. All the parts are in colors that they are available for purchase in, though I've had some fun experimenting with alternate color palettes and layering.  

Hero Factory Canine BuddyPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image

This was another digital experiment I started last semester, this time in creating a "police dog" companion to scale with a small or medium hero figure. He uses 25 pieces and is the sort of figure I'd love to see as a set at a "Matoran-like" size and price point, if that were to be reintroduced. In fact, even throwing him in with a small Hero set and pushing the set up to a price point of $12.99 wouldn't bother me.  

Natalie BreezPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image

After building the MOC that would become Kit Martello, I wanted to attempt a smaller, more basic figure. The head doesn't suit this helmet or the MOC's color scheme, but several of my Glatorian heads broke as I was packing my sets up for storage last semester and as such I have been trying to use the new, less fragile head piece whenever possible.  

Cyril StarlightPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Having built an couple decent female MOCs, I wanted to experiment with some of the parts and techniques that were ill-suited to female characters, such as Drilldozer's torso/shoulder shell or the two 2.0 torso shells used back-to-back. Cyril was the result. His shield technically uses illegal connections, since the Technic angle connectors do not add up to 360º and thus are in compression. Still, I felt it fit together nicely.  

Poison DartPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

The torso design I used for Poison Dart is actually one I came up with last semester but didn't end up posting at that time. XT4's 5x6 torso beam is attached to a more basic 7x9 torso beam, creating an assortment of connection points. What I love best about this torso design is that it allows both the upper body and the lower body to be well-armored. I figured Poison Dart's waspish figure was best-suited to a villain rather than a hero or civilian, and I chose to use Toxic Reapa's head as it was ambiguously-gendered but unambiguously villainous (also, I was out of 2013 head pieces and wanted to continue avoiding Glatorian heads).  

BogwaddlePosted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Finally we come to the 41-piece Bogwaddle, one of my favorite tablescraps from this semester. He started out with me simply wanting to use some of the Earth Green parts from Ogrum, but as soon as I saw how goofy and playful Ogrum's mask looked when flipped upside-down, I knew I wanted it to be the basis of my MOC. What makes Bogwaddle so appealing to me is not only his small size but also his articulation. His waist is articulated (though you can't see it very well in these pictures) so it can rock side-to-side, and his shoulders can swing back and forth. This, coupled with his light and well-distributed weight, makes it very easy and fun to put him in amusing poses.Comments, criticisms, and suggestions are all welcome! Hope there's something in this topic you like!

I don't like Hero Factory, but I do like your MOCs. Brimstone looks nice, especially his weapon thing. The police dog has a unique build and idea. Breez looks simple, but actually similar to the real sets. Starlight's legs are a bit short, but I like the shield thing. For Poison Dart, I like the tail, but maybe a little more weapons, maybe. Finally, for Bogwaddle, I like all the spikes and how he can transform, slightly similar to the Vahki.

Honestly, Bogwaddle is my favorite. He's on that line of cute yet freaky which I love! Can you show me how to build him? And possibly the star shield too?

Brimstone, he stated, is a female.

Bogwaddle is cool and so is Starlight. I really like how you made his shield where you placed his sword.

I think my favorites are the dog and Bogwaddle.  I'd like if they re-introduced a Matoran set size for things like that- maybe a line of like, animal-themed helper robots like birds, dogs, etc.
