Hello guys! This is @ToaNoah_Wafflemeister back again with a new “work pack” concept! (que intro)
After the (surprising) success my last G3 design, Fight for the Mask Fragment, I’ve decided to make another concept. I’m working on a series of small little sets I’m calling, “work packs”, because while they take heavy inspiration from battle packs, they don’t really have anything to “battle”. These are also kind of worldbuilding, seeing Matoran doing their work. Each set includes three minifigures (one named) and accesories, some sort of creature, vehicle, or landscape, typically with a function, and… Well, that’s it. They each will depict a scene of Matoran working, hence the name.
So in this scene, an Ihuan gets lost in the mountains, and the flags he’s placed are of no help. Mazeka arrives to the scene with his co-worker to save the poor fellow, riding on the quick Ihuan snowmobile. Using the blasters to scare off dangerous Rahi and the boosters to climb any icy terrain, this snowmobile is suited for all situations.
Here are the three minifigures, two unnamed Matoran + Mazeka. The accesories include two picks, two flags, and a piece of ice re-purposed as a hiking stick. Still super basic, as I have no editing program to give them anything cooler.
Here is the snowmobile, with some reused Bionicle pieces and such. I didn’t want the vehicle to be too bland, so I added “pastel blue” to the scheme, even though I’m pretty sure that’s a retired color. I guess I just threw on the shooter for a function and gave it a purpose. When I say “shooter” or “blaster”, I am not referring to the flintlock pistols on the front, I incorporated those mainly for design. I am talking about the stud shooters on the skis of the snowmobile.
That’s my set, Ihuan Search Party. Another vehicle set, except this one has so much more detail and cool complexity my other two packs are a bit lacking in. The set has 105 pieces, and, yet again, would go for $10. Feedback is much appreciated!
