Alright, let’s play a game! This game is called, "How Many Times Can I Make a Topic About a MoC I’ve Been On And Off Working On For About Two Years?" Why? Because I’ve got nothing better to do than prove to my photography/film instructor and myself that I can focus a camera lens.
Yes. It’s another Makuta Teridax revamp. But who cares?! I’m contributing to the community, right? So if you’ve seen the other topics I made for previous versions of this particular MoC, you know this is my attempt to make something that is imposing, while also paying homage to the Bionicle Movies.
You may also notice some small changes in the build; most notable being the mask, and the torso. The torso’s been completely rebuilt since the last time I posted this thing.
The mask is a 3D printed wonder off of Shapeways, availible in multiple flavors and styles. I have version 1, which uses a pinhole in the top and front whereas version 2 has an axle in the front.
Again if you’ve seen the previous iterations (and if you have eyes) you’d note the six Kraata containers corresponding to the six Rhakshi from 2003. Also tucked into the torso is the grey Hau from the Takanuva set which I’m using as a placeholder for an infected one, the whole detail itself is a nod to MNoG where Makuta first took the form of a Matoran.
And for all the Legends Of Metru Nui fans, I also cut him some custom wings from a vinyl cloth which now sits with large wing shaped holes collecting dust in a closet somewhere.
These wings are nearly as tall as the base figure, and are flexible enough to collapse as seen above. (They make great fans when sitting in a room filled with heat lamps by the way.) As a bonus, why not compare the first version with the latest?
That’s about all I have to show without taking up too much space on the page in the way of pictures. If you want to see more pictures, go look at my Flickr.
