-My Childhood (I'm a teen, am I still living in my childhood?)
@ToaNoah_Wafflemeister yet again with yet again another set concept (yet again). Motara Traveling Gang! Intro time!
After the (surprising) success my last G3 design, Fight for the Mask Fragment, I've decided to make another concept. I'm working on a series of small little sets I'm calling, "work packs", because while they take heavy inspiration from battle packs, they don't really have anything to "battle". These are also kind of worldbuilding, seeing Matoran doing their work. Each set includes three minifigures (one named) and accesories, some sort of creature, vehicle, or landscape, typically with a function, and... Well, that's it. They each will depict a scene of Matoran working, hence the name.
-Tiroan Mining Squad
-Nahoan Fishing Trip
-Ihuan Search Party
-Motara Traveling Gang
-Mangaian Training Troop
-Kanaean Defense Team
Okay, so this is a scene of a traveling gang venturing across the treacherous desert in search of wealth. One Matoran rides on top of a young Bug-Rahi, called the "Sand Scuttler" holding his chain leashes that can detach to become whips. An ally wielding a dagger scouts ahead, watching for enemies. The leader, Skopio, watches with an iron gaze to make sure the other two don't run from their duties.
Here are the three figures, the driver, scout, and Skopio. Skopio is, yes, Pouks from @A2B2C2's Pouks/Panrahk backstory that is now basically canon. The chain whips the driver holds attach to the bug's saddle. Skopio is also based off of @Oomatu's art from the story bible because I love this guy:
Some more images of the Sand Scuttler. Sort of inspired by @Sokoda's Bug-Rahi, just smaller-ed. I imagine it as a baby version. It's got two blasters and flags to make it look cool. $10 for 109 pieces. Yay.
EDIT: Due to @Jon's suggestion, I'm naming this beetle, um... The Sand Scuttler... Is that cool?
That's it, Motara Traveling Gang! Hope you guys liked it, and thanks for any feedback!
