MFS3-Type 3 "Kiryu" (/Mechagodzilla 3)

So guys, just getting used to the boards and such, but I decided it was about time to post my own MOC in the Forums. As the title suggests, this MOC is heavily inspired by Kiryu, also known as Mechagodzilla 3. I was looking through my pieces one day and realized that, not unlike most 'mocists' out there, I had a plethora of silver pieces that were just lying around.

So, I figured that instead of using the silver/grey tones as accents to mocs.. why not use them as the main attraction to a creation?

The next step was finding out what I could possibly build that was mostly silver, but not bland because of the color scheme.

With that in mind, I figured, "What better character, or in this case, Mecha, to draw inspiration from than Mecha-G's third iteration? And so, looking at Fenrak's empty skull, I imagined a new body surrounding and filling it with life, and Kiryu is the culmination of this vision realized. It's not perfect, no MOC is technically, but I believe that if not capturing the exact character itself, I would have hoped to capture his essence.

As you can see, I had to use the support Piston system to help keep it upright. But, I don't think it detracts too much from the look.

Now these maser weapons (or lasers, I don't know the exact way to pronounce the canonical term) are key weapons of Kiryu and I wanted to implement them, but also retain the feature of them detaching easily.

And so, I did that by allowing the back end to the open plus rod at the back end of Pohatu Nuva's claws that I used on the forearms.
I think I did so pretty well!

Now, here are just some other shots if Kiryu in different poses.

The red eyes feature, when Kiryu is in "Bezerk" mode, was easily achieved through a change in Bohrok eyes.

And with that, I hope you've enjoyed a look at my Kiryu MOC. Let me know what thought and/or changes you might have in mind.

Thanks in advanced! -MataNui101

No Absolute Zero Cannon, 0/10.


This is actually quite nice.

While not a 100%-screen-accurate replica of Kiryu, it retains enough of the general aesthetic to look good and be recognizable.

Also, the inclusion of the maser-lightning-knife thingies is a nice touch, though they could probably stand to have a little blue on them somewhere.

This should be renamed to "Eljay's nightmare: the set".

Kiryu is possibly my favourite variation of Mechagodzilla, so I like to see Mocs of it. While not accurate, I like the uniqueness of his look and pieces used. Well done!

This looks really cool. Nice job

while the monochromity manages to hide it in many regards

the shaping, mostly in the torso, is all over the place.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I appreciate it, and will take it into account when looking to rework it in the future.
