MOC: Goliath Iota: The remnant titan

Goliath Iota is the last remaining survivor of an extinct species.His species was wiped out of existence due to constant war and conflict right after the primitive discovery of space travel. Ultimately, the utilization of antimatter for weaponry is what brought the destruction of his home planet. This is what left him as the only witness for his planets destruction.

Eventually he discovered other planets with inhabitants, noticing the significant differences in development he came to a conclusion, that it was not as simple as being unlucky that lead to his species' fate, but it was the constant misuse of technology paired with a badly developed culture. With that in mind goliath founded the Star-Clan, with the original purpose of correcting the issues that lead to his races destruction,in an attempt to save other civilizations.

What happened afterwards was a monumental failure. With the the many civilizations built off of war rejecting the offer, some even committing to A war against them. With the final war, Goliath lost many friends and became a ruthless leader, bringing a change to the Star-Clan. he decided that to prevent more war, he was to "Cleanse the unsuitable planets," developing a system to define each planets fate. process's listed as so.

First, a star-clan embasador would be sent to the world, They would greet the civilization, learn their culture and understand their world. They would then submit the information via a genisis core.

Result A: viable uplift.
If a civilization was proven to be ready for uplifting, the
civilization would then be given the technology for interplanetary travel, as well as a genisis core to communicate with the star-clan.

Result B: Enlightenment
If a civilization is proven to be a low level problematic type, the civilization will be offered assistance. if the civilization accepts, they will be guided towards a better future.

Result C: "Cleansing"
If a civilization is thought to be unrecoverable, a genisis core Would be injected into the planets core and then detonated, volcanic eruptions as well as plate shattering and total environment collapse under a matter of hours. Afterwards the planet is reformed and reseeded for life to begin again.

Personality:
Years of loss and failure has turned Goliath into a harsh broken person. He was once a victim of extinction, looking to prevent other species from experiencing the same fate, but now believes that extinction will be the only solution for the "unrecoverable".

Weapons systems:
because if his species's war-like culture, they have developed modifications to their own bodies. At will, Goliaths torso becomes fully weaponized, with a set of automatic rocket launchers, and Freeze lazers to weaken armour, and heat lasers to cook his enemies in their tracks.

Here's a little animation... eh, perhaps i made it too fast, im new to animation, still good so here.

Dimensions and other info:
Goliath stands at 21 inches (Not counting his "shoulder-blades"), and 9 inches wide: The moc has pretty good posability, but it doesn't have great footing and can sometimes fall over if not ballanced well. I have tried many tactics but I was not fully able to solve the issue

I really like this moc but you needed to put this into the Lego creations category

is there a way to edit the page? I don't see one here...

Yah you click on the pencil icon and then you go to category (should say bionicle) then change it to Lego creations

ah... thanks man, I'm new here. I appreciate the help.

I really like it, but the feet are weird and the arms are way too skinny.

have to agree with you on the feet, but as for the arms... I'm not so sure. about 50/50.

This looks very Evangelion... and I love it.

I get the type of silhouette you were going for as well, and you pulled it off pretty great.

My only issues are that I think the colors are incredibly bland and that the designs look cluttered and a bit too busy.

Still, a pretty good MOC overall.

meh, i just like to use allot of silver, color just doesn't fit with the character, maybe in exception to bronze if they ever made bronze pieces, a touch of green. hmm... BUT... Anyway thanks for the love.

I've made "copper" pieces, but they're mostly used in mini fig axes.

Oh, there's also a rare copper Huna that exists. So that's cool.

No problem man c:

This guy looks good

I like it.

There's a word for MOCs like this:

Awful.

/s it's a great MOC. I like it.

I appeciate the size. I always have trouble with the big Mocs.

Reminds me of Evangelion. The MOC itself is awesome!

WHOA is that is HUGE

I see the same

This is great! I L.O.V.E. the backstory! I find if a MOC doesn't have a good backstory it's a real turn off so this is great! The chest is a cool design and all the custom parts look SHWEET! Also

I have always wanted one but they are so dang rare :crying_cat_face:
Anyway great Titan man!

Well I had a lot of structural pieces at the time, eventually i made a prototype and look at it now... took allot of work.

Here's the picture of the early version. :smile:

I am always in awe of people who can build MOCs like this. For a big guy he's got a pencil-thin abdomen though. But that's my only gripe about it, this is a fantastic creation.

The backstory reminds me of the monoliths from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
