Thank you! The rhotuka ripcords are really neat in their appearance, and I had a bunch hanging around that I wanted to use.
Thanks! Yeah, the two Rodes are used to make a cyclopean head (I just designed it so the neck ran along the torso and positioned the head in the crotch-region). Glad you like it.
There was an old Brickeen’s MOC that used them in a somewhat similar way. I really wanted to make something weird and thought the ricords provided a nice contrast to the round and bulkier portions of the MOC. Thanks!
