I tried to follow Greg’s description, but it wasn’t working so I did this instead - mostly inspired by the Mask of Creation itself. This is my first MOC since Bionicle’s return, and it was fun trying to fuse multiple building systems and still have a coherent outcome.
It’s a fairly straight-forward build, formed around a shadow matoran torso - which I always felt had wasted potential.
I know right? It has narrower shoulders and a good natural curve to it, which I like. The hunch makes room for neck articulation, and the size generally makes it a good base for semi-custom builds.
I guess they do a bit, I like them though, they can make for some quite dynamic poses. Maybe they look better angled slightly more backwards
Same, I’ve only seen a handful, which is not what I expected. I actually started planning this long before the mask was even out so I could have a head start - I gathered up all the gold pieces I could find and started working on a more hyper-masculine titan-sized build with grey and green included. It had good chest armour and was more custom, but I couldn’t make the colour-scheme work and I found the build flat and boring. This started as a side-project when I had creative blocks, originally intended as a female version, but I scrapped that idea when I scrapped the original.
I like what you did with it- it’s unique and well thought out; especially the wings and upper torso.
It does have its flaws, mainly the very thin and armorless left arm ending in a huge hand, which I feel is out of proportion. I have no complaints about the Shadow Matoran torso though; it doesn’t feel out of place in the least bit.
