First Self MoC/Toa MoC

This is my first attempt at a self MoC. It is, as my username suggests, Toa Onepu. I am aware that there are a few parts that are different on each side, such as the axels on the upper leg armor. I fixed most of those errors.

If you have any constructive criticism, I would appriciate it if you leave it in a comment below.

I must ask... why include two clashing purples? The contrast looks funny, with the layering looking funny, what with the silver-on-purple-on-violet-on-black

nice build though

I did try to avoid the use of more than one shade of purple, but there was simply not enough of either color to only use one or the other. I hope to improve that soon.

say, what's his Toa Tool supposed to be?

It is supposed to be an axe with an adjustable shovel-like digging claw on the back.

I don't feel as though it's be useful. The Matoro claw seems abit too blunt. Also why the digging shovel claw? I mean I don't mind having a toa tool be a multipurpose tool, but doesn't it seem odd?

Praise/Criticism:

  • I like the body design; it gives it a rather thin, agile appearance
  • The color scheme is pretty consistent with its purple, gunmetal, and black color scheme(besides their being two different types of purple.)
  • I like the Arm design ALOT.
  • The lower legs seem to stick out a little too much with the armor attachments and the upper legs look a little off due to the knobs sticking out of the thigh plate.
  • I feel like you were trying to go with a mining inspired design with the weapon, but I feel like it is a little too spindly.

Overall, a solid 8/10.
Good Job! blush

Well, he's from Onu Koro and their main 'activity' you could say, is mining. So I figured that it would be useful to have if he's helping out the Matoran in the mines.

Well I could see it as a dual purpose tool. Why not just have it double-sided and split into two weapons or something?

Thanks!

Just trying to help. wink

I appriciate it.

I wanted it to be able to fold inwards so if he is fighting, the shovel wouldn't be in the way of things. I also wanted the axe piece to capture the shape and dimensions of a real axe, rather than having the blade looking sharp. I also wanted it to be a single weapon instead of a larger one and a smaller one, or a large one that breaks down into a smaller one.

i'd give this topic a read brah :slight_smile:

How, in your opinion, could I make them better?

Also I have forgotten how to directly quote someone in a comment. Do you know where I could find how to do that?

scrap them
actually, yeah, I just don't like the design, I do like the sort of megaman boot thing it has going on.

just highlight the text you want to quote.

PURPLE!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

very nice, good job with the armoring and colors, but the shoulders have a thin connection but thats just a nitpick

I love it! Looks great! His arms are really weird though, how they're so buff'd, and his legs are so skinny. But it's still good! Have a cookie! No, have a cake! Or, some pizza.
