Continuing the discussion from Ratchet and clank:
I was going to wait until a few days or a few more Bionicle centric MOCs were posted but since this conversation came up in the Video Games threadI felt that it'd be appropriate to post this MOC given that Ratchet and Clank(or more so a villain in one of the games) is the direct inspiration for it. I present to Dr Octavian Von Arachnefar-Genius Master Villain Extraordinaire!
About the MOC
One of the big inspirations for me while building Dr. A was Dr. Nefarious from the Ratchet and Clank series of games for the Playstation systems. In fact I often used reference photos of him to get similar proportions. This is mainly why Dr. A is so tall and skinny, though Dr. Nefarious is about as tall as Ratchet who isn't very tall at all compared to many of the other characters in the series.
Features and Gadgets
Arachnefar isn't much of a fighter, if he has any particular strength or speed, it comes from his robotic body. Dr. A is much more inclined to let his minions do all the fighting themselves, right up until he absolutely has to. However, once he's forced in a position of combat, he's got quite an arsenal of weaponry and tricks up his sleeves(literally if he's wearing a robe). These include:
- Dual arm-mounted "Venomissiles"
- Web shooter located in his mouth
- Projectile hands(one chained one is not due to the venomissiles)
- Sharpened Bone Talons.
- THE SubLIMEinator!!!
Are those pesky bugs, aliens, robots, zombies, humans. Gnomes, pirates, ninjas, alien-robot-zombie-bug ninja-pirate-gnoms bothering you or your state of perfected harmony? Then subdue your foes or pesky household nuisances with the SubLIMEinator! It has a handy dandy dial so you can use it for everything from zapping those annoying house flies, to zapping your annoying in-laws. The SubLIMEinator, GET YOURS TODAY! From Dave-i-corp!
Dr. A also has Three Minions. More about them and the Doc can be read on his DA page.
Arachnafar(the chibi version).
He's a grumpy little fellow. Its tough being the EVILEST MASTER VILLAIN OF THE GALAXY place evil laugh here...when you're only 4 feet tall, and a foot and a half of that comes from your ginormous jarred brain head. XD Every good video game-ish evil super villain genius needs a comical/ironic defeat at the end of the game, Arachnefar's is that he's eternally cursed to be stuck in this pint sized(and admittedly adorable snickers) form. Even if he tries to swap out components of his robotic form hes zapped back into this one.
