Hello TTV Community! It has been a very long time since I've posted another Darkseid moc revamp. Now if I remember correctly I said I wouldn't post another Darkseid revamp moc unless I find another way to improve this moc for the better.
And as the matter of fact I did but don't fear this is...well I hope it is the last version I'll ever do on Darkseid.
Unless I get a bunch of parts to make a giant titan moc or try something else with him, I can safely and happily say that this moc is finished! This is how I imagined him to be and yeah, I hope you will enjoy and let me know what you like and didn't like and if there is any way I could improve then let me know! So without further ado, enjoy!
Infinity Requiem - Darkseid's True Origin Story
Darkseid was once a benevolent being, for he truly cared and protected his brethren as well the Mortals and their worlds which they inhabited, at first he grew very fond of them and protected them from any kind of danger, on his watch they were truly safe.
Till sadly one day due to unfortunate events that the emptiness and darkness passed through the barrier and corrupting humanity which in the end lead Darkseid visiting the Void in the search for answers.
But Darkseid never truly came back, his once innocent soul now distorted and twisted into a Mad Man or Mad Vestal causing him to see the corrupted humanity as a virus threatening the existence of life itself and he sought out to annihilate it.
However, his tyranny didn't last long as the remaining Vestals calling themselves now the Twelve fought and defeated Darkseid but not without sacrifices, as out of pity they decided to imprison him in a dimension made for him.
He swore that one day he will return and finish what he has started, since the fall of a benevolent being the Twelve have never been really the same.
Darkseid transformed his prison now into his Dark Kingdom and at his disposal, a group of Demi-Godly beings called the Kaethrani which sworn their allegiances to him and they remain forever loyal.
Eventually, there was another battle at that time Darkseid grew stronger than ever before, only Oros was capable enough to hold up with him even though he knew that it was just a matter of time, thanks to the Vestal of Wisdom called Cavmos told them that a truce had to be made and one it was made, however, with one exception, that one day when they are ready they will fight again and the winner takes all.
They agreed and now there hasn't been another war between the Vestals ever since for their powers could bring about the end of the Multiverse, so now Darkseid plays along, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike because he knows that slow and steady wins the race...
Here you can see, I went back a few versions ago and gave him his cape back. This is what he wears when not in combat.
The back view with his cape on.
And with his cape removed and all this is how he looks when in combat, and from what you can see quite a lot has changed so I'll mention them all.
As you can see I decided to bulk his hands a bit and I think they turned out great.
His head also changed quite a bit, it's bulkier and believe it or not he has a mouth a working mouth!
His roars are said to create earthquakes and shatter islands...
Here is his back view without the cape, much more compact than before so I have no real complaints.
His torso also changed quite a bit, it took me two days to think about how I can re-do it and one day to actually do it.
So I think you might have noticed a little addition to him...well you are not wrong, he has a retractable tail and it has no real limit how long it can be, the only limit is what he sets it to be if he wants the tail can go for 10 miles or 100 of miles or just a few meters, but make no mistake it is a deadly weapon able to destroy weapons by impaling the planet as it digs towards its core and destroys it.
You see that red borok eye? And the other two red borok eyes on Darkseid's head? Can you see the connection? So basically he can also see with his tail...so when he is fighting somebody he can actually fight that one and fight another with his tail.
Here you can see more of his torso and how I re-did it.
And yes he is posable and sturdy, he won't fall that easily unless you really try to.
Here is a size comparison so that you kinda get the idea how big he actually is.
Now I've gone a little further than I expected and I did a video for all of the versions I did for Darkseid if you would be so kind as to watch it that would be greatly appreciated and would mean personally a lot to me.
I hope you enjoy the music and I hope that this journey's end has been satisfying for you.
So without further ado, enjoy! Because this has been a helluva ride!
So my thoughts about the moc: Could I have had done better? If I had large plethora of pieces hell to the yeah but as of right now he is the best up to date version of Darkseid there will be unless I get many lego pieces which I kinda doubt it there wouldn't be a Darkseid v.6 and I think I am sure about that unless again things will change till then this is the final result and I am really happy with him.
He is very posable, stable he looks good in person, but in pictures he kinda looks a bit weird to me but god if I could go to those lego things where you could show your creation well I would go there but where I live at the moment is not possible or I myself am not up to date with that kind of stuff.
So, I hope you have enjoyed this moc and its helluva ride and journey he is the only moc I never took apart only one time I did it and I regret it and it was a hellish pain to get his torso and head back together because believe me...he looks like a deceptive moc he doesn't look like he has much going on but go under his hood and you'll see what I mean.
Constructive Criticism and Feedback is appreciated, please tell me what you did like and didn't like and I am looking forward to conversating with you all in case there are some questions about him, so peace!
