And already another update for Xoth @Willess12 :
Will probably be the last WIP update, too. Since I took the pictures I completed the torso, so presently he's just missing lower arms and a cloak/cape now.
The neck is slightly too long, but since the Great Rau has those extensions downward it has to be for proper articulation. The cloak will probably help a bit in covering the neck up.
Don't expect the MOC to be finished very soon, though - I'll need to get some black Exo-Force robot arms for the fingers from bricklink first...
EDIT: Ok, Xoth now is pretty much finished, just needs a cloak/cape and fingers
So I started on the next Makuta: @Timeline15's Erdorn
Turned out a little bulkier than I planned... on the left is teh properly coloured leg, the one on the right I'll first have to get the proper pieces for.
Actually I have to say that I LOVE the look of the upper legs from the front. The Vahki head looks so nice as a knee and the texture also works great with the Piraka armor and Visorak foot.
From the side it also looks well enough:
But here's the HUGE problem with it - not only can't it be bent forward, but when bending backwards it just looks... bad:
But I can't change that if I want to keep the Vahki head.
So here's my question for all of you:
Keep the Vahki head and limit good looking poseability or redo the upper legs?
Personally I'm inclined to leave it as it is, since in a proper pose it does look really nice - and one good pose is basically all I need for display purposes. Still I'm not sure...
