Pylon, the Brute

A renowned warrior from the distant planet Mechaniron,
Pylon leads his legion of brutes into battle against all who oppose him.

So this MOC took about two months to build, nitpick over, and rebuild to get to the point it’s at today. I can personally say that I’m pleased with the way Pylon came out in the end, being originally driven by the usage of Hero Factory 1.0 pieces in different ways (I mean, the leg armor is still leg armor, but it’s upside down now). The longer I took with him, the more the MOC evolved from a much smaller drone-like character into a hulking, ax-wielding brute. In the story I’m developing, he is part of the same robotic species as Spry (a MOC I made earlier this year), as well as in the same universe as Carmine Wheeler and the Gasket Brothers.

I love that simple bulldog-like face that you’ve created, gives it more of that brute appearance. The name choice is also quite appropriate :thumbsup:

Wow, that’s some nice shaping.

Man, you’ve improved since 2014! Pretty impressive chaping and parts usage all around. Not a fan of the random little wing things on the back, since they don’t fit the angular look of the rest of the MOC…but man. The rest is good.

So this dude?

Anyway, this looks really good. I love the overall look of the moc. I’d love to know how you made the arms.

You must construct additional pylons…

Reminds me a lot of atlas from titan fall.
Very nicely built too.

I like the usage of the McToran arms for the torso, creates some nice shaping.

I’ve always had one question for some Mocs; did you photoshop that pic or is there actually a light built in? Either way I like him.

In the flickr album there’s a picture of the arm split apart a bit and a detailed description of how it’s assembled. Hope this helps!

@Khalsa721 The eye does glow thanks to Power Functions LED positioned directly behind it.
