I've had a bunch of MOCs just sitting around for months now, so I'll be posting them on here over the next few days, depending on how quickly I can complete my stop-motion film for LEGO's contest. Anyway, here's the first MOC.

 

He's an unnamed Le-Matoran engineer who once got in a terrible accident that ruined the lower half of his body. Seeing this as an opportunity to experiment, he had a new lower torso constructed for him, but in place of legs, a single wheel mechanism that would allow for quick travel over semi-flat ground.

That looks pretty nice, a small and simple build. That's pretty creative. One thing: I suggest adding more lime pieces for the color scheme to look nicer.

He reminds me of a Moc I made called Fred. (I didn't have a cool name for him.) He was basically a robot with one wheel and two arms.

 

I'll tell you this, the teal is nice. But I don't think the green Miru would work, but I see where you are going with it. A teal Miru would work better.

[font="Palatino;"]The main thing that sticks out to me when I look at this MOC is that it feels ... unfinished. I really think you could have fleshed it out a bit more. I'm getting a sort of tablescrap vibe from it as it currently is. Teal is a great color, but the lime along with it is too close to the teal to really work as a contrasting color. Considering how little lime is actually on the body, perhaps you might consider changing it to another color?[/font]

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

He actually is kinda unfinished. I had an idea in mind while building him, but I couldn't find a good way to implement it. I had wanted to use all teal, but parts I needed weren't available in that color. I may try finding a different color, though. That might help a lot, actually. I'm open to suggestions.

A nice, small, simple build. I like how you incorporated the teal with the lime green. But, I would try to add more teal. Just to enforce the TEAL wheelie more.
