Hell there again, TTV Community! This time, for the very first actually, I created a toa self-moc. Well, that is not without reason, the real reason why I did this was that @MaximusPrimal and our other friends have decided to make a Toa Team to which we agreed and everyone got their elemental power and I got Iron.
So I challenged myself to create a Toa of Iron which represents me in the Bionicle Universe and well I think he turned out to be great, also I am not a huge veteran when it comes to Bionicle G1 lore so yeah, that’s a thing, and if he doesn’t really look like a toa because of his mask, well, sorry, but I don’t own any G1 parts, only G2 and even at that, I am very limited.
Also thanks to @BlackBeltGamer98 who gave me a few names and I’ve chosen one which was Ferrus, and yes he is also a part of our Toa Team…which for the moment, doesn’t have a name, but we are working on that!
So without further ado, enjoy!
He’s known to have a cold heart just like the Iron itself, only those who truly got to know him, know that is not always true for he truly is inside a sweet guy and a softy…his name is, Ferrus, Toa of Iron.
To get this out of the way, yes, he is posable and stable. If his poses are generic, sorry, sometimes I lack the imagination to pose my creations properly.
So as you’ve noticed, he has a cloth piece on his neck which acts as a comforter and there is his cloth hip piece.
Also, all of his weapons are stored on him, his combat knife on his back, his lightsabers on his armor hip pieces and his cannon guns on the back of the armor pieces.
So you think, those silver sticks, are sticks? Really? Well…szwum!
Guess they aren’t just sticks, now are they? Now I have an explanation of how he found them. So as he traveled and was searching for rare metal minerals, he stumbled upon two red crystals and with his powers over metal he created a lightsaber hilt and well he went through the process of creating his lightsabers and this is the result and yes he is quite skilled using them…Darth Vader would be quite jealous.
Now, if two lightsabers weren’t dangerous enough, he carries around a combat knife he created and trained himself in close hand-to-hand combat knife fights.
And even if, two lightsabers and a combat knife weren’t enough for him, he’s got guns…and powerful ones at that. As expected he’s skilled with them and when he fires bullets at a target he can even take control of the bullet and aim it so that he’ll never miss.
Also, he likes to use his weapons in different variations in a very unorthodox way. These are just some examples.
So being my self-moc I also based him mostly off of myself, so he might appear to be a very hard guy to read at times, and at first glance, he might appear to have a cold iron heart but when you get to know him, he is quite caring, sweet and a good guy, that is if you manage to crack him up.
If he doesn’t like something, he can easily get annoyed and even pissed, and when he does very few can stop him from lashing out in anger, so one might say he is quite hotheaded so the best way is to not annoy him, also he isn’t that big of a team player and may seem to be distant at times.
He also doesn’t like a forced authority in a rude fashion way, he doesn’t like when people bark orders at him and force him to do what he doesn’t want or like to do, for he then becomes quite aggressive and takes self-defense to the literal point, so at first glance he might seem a bit complicated, but he really isn’t, one must be careful how he approaches him and if he’s approached the right way, he will open up more than usual.
The things he likes to do is to hear music and dance, it calms him down and makes him happy for a while, music is his thing and he can’t live without it, so you’d better not take his music away from him.
Hist Theme: Now since I am a huge fan of music, I had to give him a theme, I just had to.
Okay, so Constructive Criticism is appreciated, I want to know if this does look like a Toa, and if he is well built and if it did catch the representation of a Toa of Iron and so on for I put a lot of effort into it and for me, I liked how he turned out for he is the very first Toa I’ve created it and a self-moc at that.
