This is, in my opinion, my best Moc to date. I didn’t want to do the overused Mata Green and Gold or Metru Green and Silver colour schemes, because that’s not how I imagine Artakha. I see him as someone incredibly ancient, and I wanted to convey that with these more faded colours. I also gave him these silver gauntlet-y things, which I see him using like gloves to protect himself from the heat of any molten metal he might be forging.
His hammer is nothing special, but it’s not really meant to be. It’s just a forging tool, not something so ornate that you wouldn’t want to ever hit anything with it.
His articulation is, surprisingly, pretty decent, considering the layers and layers of armour he’s got. It’s not great, but he can still pull of quite a variety of poses.
His hammer can also be stored on his back.
Now for the breakdown.
Here’s his skeleton. The torso is mainly built around a 2015 gearbox, so in theory you could add a gear function to him with little effort.
Here’s a better look at the waist area. You can see that the armour is attached using those clear stand pieces from the DC Minifigures series.
As for his hips, you may notice that the construction is obscured by the cloth piece from Rey. As such, I have made instructions for this area of Artahka.
Instructions for Artakha’s Arms and Hammer
These instructions do have a slight error, the hordika necks holding the shoulder armour in place should have the ball joint pointing forwards instead of backwards.
