Contrast: Burning and Dousing

So, two more RoT MOCs, before I actually get the story out. It’ll be a while.

I bring Jalis, Toa of Fire, and Baronon, Toa of Water. To preface this, Baronon is indeed male. the details of why that is are listed briefly in the RoT Coming Soon topic, and will soon be more detailed in his Precursor backstory.

But for now, the MOCs themselves.

Here’s Baronon. Before you say anything, yes, I know, the Mask doesn’t entirely match his colors. It was the closest thing I had, and I thought it looked cool enough. It’s darker in person, reallty.

I think this one came out well, for how simple he is. Kinda short and stocky. I wanna change the shoulders, though. That’s kinda meh, IMO.

I love using that Hordika back piece. Also Nokama’s head makes it a fine arc to his back. It adds to the stock.

Also, yes. He can indeed use his Axe as an Axe. He can rock out. Not in-story, though. Just fun to pose in MOC form.

And here he is with the Inika build.

Here’s Jalis. He’s I think the more complex and custom of these two MOCs, though he uses standard Inika legs.

Frontal view. I will admit, his colors are a bit everywhere, but I think he’s good enough.

And his sword can store on the back.

But here it is without the sword.

Much like my Knightpriest MOC, the waist can rotate, and get an awesome ab crunch.

His sword is usually two swords. The yellow one is the only one of the two that can channel elemental energy. It shoots fire from between the two blades. That is the Burning Sword. The silver one is simply just good as a blade, and made of protosteel. It is the Grandsword. It’s good for fighting off multiple enemies, having two swords.

But they can combine to form the Burning Grandsword. It is basically just the Sword from Toa Mata Nui, but I felt like it worked for Jalis as a character.

And compared to an Inika build. Fun fact: Jalis is named after the tribe from the Deltora Quest series. They were painted in the books as great and proud warriors, so I felt it fit him well.

So yeah, sorry for meh picture quality, so please do share your thoughts, criticism or compliments. It gratifies me greatly to see them.


I really Like Jalis, I think that Baronon was a little bit weird in compeison. You should put his pictures 1st then Jalis. Either way Nice mocs man!

Uh…I’m a bit unaware as to what exactly switching the picture order would do…

Mind explaining like, exactly what you mean?

It’s like you see A really good looking moc, you expect the next one to be better/just as good. So yeah it’s kinda lie that kiddy saying “Save the best for last”

Oh. Okay…

I uh, I guess I could do that. >.> Just uh, lemme edit, I suppose.

Very good! :wink:
I really like Jalis’ torso and lower arm design.

Hah man it’s up to you. Honestly your mocs are waayy better than mine.

Baronon: Very nice.

His hands need work. They look to much like they’re cones.

The mask is alright maybe a dark blue Ruru would work better.

Jails: He’s pretty much fine the way he is. I like him :slight_smile:

His hands look like cones?

They’re just standard hand pieces from 2002/08

The Piraka feet for arm gaurds lead to his hands and they’re sort of, not there.
His hands are to small is what I’m trying to say.

Ah, I see. Makes sense. I’ll see what I can’t do.

Ya, don’t worry about it. I’m apparently not to great with the hands either.

I agree that the Metru and Piraka feet don’t work so well on Baronon’s arms. Then again, who am I to critique? I haven’t even made a single Bio-MOC yet… :stuck_out_tongue:

Nice. I like that contrast that Baronon’s mask gives. You should really keep it.
Jalis is amazing. usually flexible torsos are scrawny, gappy, or just look weird. that is the most solid torso I have seen in a while.
