@ToaNoah_Wafflemeister back again with another “work pack”! Second-to-last, it’s the Mangaian Training Troop!
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.
Alright, so here two soldiers-in-training face-off against General Sarda in hopes of becoming a member of the Mangaian army. The three race through an old, abandoned fortress. A trainee rushes too quickly underneath a tower armed with a spinning saw blade, and a barrage of rocks rain down upon him! Another trainee wielding her battle axe charges at the General, hoping to prove herself worthy of Mangaia.
Here are the three minifigs, General Sarda and two more Mangaians. Not much to say, very simple.
Here are two fortress parts. I know they don’t look much like @Sokoda’s designs, but that’s because (I can’t make it like that at this scale) this structure is part of an abandoned fortress of old. I can see trainees practicing here. In case you can not tell, if you pull that thing in the back, it drops rocks.
EDIT: Thanks to an accidental suggestion by @TheMOCingbird, I’ve decided to make the design on the tower a spinning blade. I retook the main picture, but I’ll keep the rest the same. So just imagine that they’re different, I guess.
EDIT (2): @Jon, @IllustriousVar, @Mesonak
So, I’m rewatching the last Brainstorm, and you (specifically Meso) asked for a piece count/price point. I can’t believe I forgot this one! I’m pretty sure I put those on the rest, but I will double-check. There are 120 bricks, for $10. Also, the spinning blade thing was not even my idea, but I approved it, so I’m equal the blame. I actually think it’s kind of cool, it’s short enough to slice off some heads, and this is a training facility anyways.
So there it is, the Mangaian Training Troop. Thanks for checking this concept out, any feedback is extremely helpful, and I’ll be working on the last concept, from Kanae, in the meantime! Now it’s time to decide whether I should do a baby Gukko flight training area or a battle with a sky serpent…
