Sorry to say, this isn't Project Reignition either if anyone was wondering that. I figured while I'm taking pictures of that, I'll just take pictures of some other MOCs I haven't posted yet, so I thought of these guys. Normally I don't build with Hero Factory besides an armor piece or two on a MOC somewhere, but I decided to try it out, and these two guys came out of it. Enjoy: Jason BlizzardEveryone on high alert! The evil criminal Frostbyte has broken out of Hero Factory prison and must be captured before he can siphon all heat out of Fabulox 18, creating a new ice age on the desert planet! We're sending in Jason Blizzard, newly equipped with ski blades and a force blaster to stop him! He'll be able to travel quickly over the ice and get Frostbyte behind bars! Yeah, that was my attempt at a LEGO-style description for him. Anyways,FrontThe inspiration for this guy mainly came from a Gali MOC I saw somewhere that used an interesting connection on the feet you'll see later, and I thought "Hey, I could put something on there!" and ended up slapping Breakout Breez's blades on there as Kopaka-Nuva-esque skis. Then I just built up with what I had, and decided to try out a custom torso on that awesome 1.0 torso piece. He didn't turn out too bad. Equipped BladesAlso like Kopaka Nuva, I figured out his skis can detach from his feet and make a sword-like thing for him. His ski pole also moves to the top of his gun, his feet are changed back to the regular attachment, and voila! Hands (or tentacles, or claws, or whatever) up!Just a quick pose for fun. SkeletonMostly so you can see the torso design and partially how the skis attach. There's not much else to see here. Ski AttachmentFinally how those things attach! It's pretty simple, I'm surprised I didn't think of it earlier (although I never use those feet anyways.) Now, what's this? Some kind of giant turtle? My expeditions have taken me far, but I've never seen anything like it. You know it's kinda...oh no, RUN! [color=#008000;]"Don't you dare call me cute!!"[/color] So, yeah. It's a vicious...swamp warrior...thingy. I tried to think of something to call it, but nothing came to mind. Basically, my little brother got Ogrum recently, and after seeing Aanchir's cute little Bogwaddle (scroll to the bottom of the post), I knew I had to try using that face. I eventually used almost exclusively Ogrum's pieces (I don't think the ball joint or small socket under his hood are from him, but you'll see that in a sec) to put this guy together.Storywise, this is a Swamp Warrior found on a distant planet who uses his (I'm not even sure if it's a guy, or even has a gender) staff and crystal boots (boost running speed and jump height) to defend his village from the threats of the swamp in which they live. YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!It's rather hard to see here, but those Piraka Spines flow really nicely with those Savage Planet claw pieces on the shoulders. His lovely smile [color=#008000;]"At least you didn't say cute."[/color]
I really love that face.
In case you were curious. The shoulder armor attaches to the top of the Brain Attack head and the ball joint to make a shell-like hood that looks pretty good. I may try it somewhere else. Also shows that nice flow of the shoulder armor I mentioned earlier.
Hope you enjoyed, I still have a few smaller MOCs I want to post, and I'll be finishing up pics of Project Reignition during that time. There's a lot of pictures to be taken, and the good camera died right in the middle, and I still can't find the charger.
