Clad in a high-tech powersuit, this mysterious figure's action speak louder than his word. Rumor has it he was once the prince of a long-forgotten kingdom.




The biggest inspiration for this MOC was Shooby4000's Warchief of Wintergarten (https://www.flickr.com/photos/46779949@N08/36619416270/in/photolist-Y7oqN5-XMW5E3-Y8SQ4Y-Y8SQ59-YbAutZ) I'm a big fan of his ability to mix simple techniques with bright colors (and the occasional third-party piece) to give his MOCs an abundance of personality. Go check him out if you haven't already.

I, too, am quite the fan of Shooby4000's work, which is why I'll be frank in saying that I don't see that much of a resemblance.


I would suggest working in some more colors. Even the most minimal accents, when executed correctly, will have a tremendous impact on the appearance of your MOC. Some trans-lime green or trans-Apple green would look great here.  Also, the clashing textures of the armor pads (shoulder - thighs - knees) does more harm than good. I would also suggest moving the most stylized shape to the shoulders (in this case it's the knees), as that usually makes for a more intimidating silhouette. 


I do, however, like the way you combined that Inika chestplate with the HF armor underneath. Makes for some really convincing shaping.

I'll echo Mohammed's comment about the blended armors on the torso, very slick. I like the tubing there too. I dig the color balance as well, especially with the dark blue head.


The armor on the knees is very geometrically distinct from anything elsewhere on the model--same for the feet, though I do think the Stars feet are underused. Maybe a different knee armor and a custom foot?
