To save the spam, all my MOC's shall be in reply to this post
Now, this topic is not only to share my MOC's, it is also to experiment and improve my MOC making skills. I have just started to sort my Lego Bionicle parts into separate containers (before they were all in big boxes) So it's now a lot easier to find and connect parts.
I am very new to MOCing, so please don't be too harsh when/if you are giving me constructive criticism...
So to start this topic off, I am going to present my selfMOC's team, called Gamma Team.
This is Ragged Claws
Now some of you may know my channel on youtube and so you may know about him already. For those who aren't familiar with my channel, here he is
Keeping in theme with all the HF builds, he is very simple. He is a medical robot (think of ratchet from TF) So he mostly helps aid other Heroes. He also doubles as an engineer, hence why his weapons are so odd, because, he built them himself.
Now moving onto why there is a Gamma team. Ragged Claws is around 6 years old (kinda ridiculous when you think about it) and in those 6 years he has always wanted to just fly around space and basically explore as much as he can. So one day he requested a spacecraft and away he went. You may think "oh that's not much of a backstory" But, not every person has to have incredibly complex backstory with millions of little details... It also keeps in theme with HF, a very simple story.
So he explored a couple of planets until he found one with a prison on it. Being on his own and having been away so long that HF would've discharged him, he decided to walk in. Just by pure luck, a breakout was happening at this time and this is where he met Dark Umbra (I posted this moc a while ago, but i've edited her since then) she is running away being shot and Ragged does what a hero does best and protects her. What Ragged doesn't know is that she's a top tier assassin and has killed multiple heroes.
He hits it off well with Umbra and they become great friends and thus, they carry on exploring. Then we arrive on a planet where there is a great structure with thousands and thousands of different coloured giants. They're all flying around with their rocket boots and adding to this huge structure. Ragged accidentally sounds some sort of alarm and all the giants start to fly towards Ragged and Umbra. A chase occurs etc etc, until there is only one robot left chasing them. Dark Umbra takes down the giant and it falls onto the ground where Ragged starts to tear it apart. He realises it's still alive and takes the opportunity to reprogram it. After a night of sleeping in a cave the robot finally wakes up. And here she is.
They asked what her name was and she replied with "I don't know" So Ragged and Umbra just named her "Red". The reason she is this big is because she is actually a victim of a great villain (whoididn'tmakelol) who is trying to rebuild his ship and journey back to his home planet. What makes him a villain is he takes Matoran from local villages on this planet, rips them apart in the most brutal way and makes them into a giant, where their only purpose is to repair and help build his ship. It's a bit nasty but oh well.
Ragged keeps commenting on how badly "Red" is built...
So this trio continue on through the galaxy and at sometime there is a romantic relationship between "Red" and Umbra. Eventually, they stop on a planet with another prison, so Dark Umbra decides stay in the ship, just incase anyone is looking for her. Ragged and "Red" notice that this prison is slightly different from the others. It has one cell. They can hear a mighty scream from inside this cell. So what do they decide to do? They decide to break in of course!
After this insane break in, Ragged and "Red" kill most of the guards, but are left injured. They then limp over to the cell and open it. This guy then walks out
This guy is called Imp. No one knows much about Imp only that he's a ruthless killer. What is also known about Imp is that he was born on a planet with an exceptionally high gravitational force. So any creature on there would have to have incredible strength to stand (alsoshutupicouldn'tthinkofanythingelse) this allows him to carry this extremely heavy weapon and have incredible strength.
Oddly, Imp does not seem to attack "Red" or Ragged. He appreciates they're help, but assures them that he might kill them in the future. For some reason this doesn't put them off and they add Imp to their ever growing team.
Dark Umbra and Imp occasionally fight to settle the argument of "whose killed the most people"
A couple of planets later they arrive on a planet consisting mainly of islands. They ignore the horse shoe shaped island and go to one shaped kind of like a hammer. They arrive in the jungle and all get out. The team swear they can smell burning and sure enough they discover a figure high in the sky burning the forest. On the ground are Matoran running and screaming and most are already dead.
Just to fill you in, this is another backstory of mine (including a MOC) about a team of Toa being corrupted by opposite powers. So this Toa of plant life was corrupted by fire and cannot control it. Thus he burns down his home and all his villagers.
They jump down into the fray and Imp, followed by Umbra jump up onto the tree tops and head for the figure burning the forest. "Red" and Ragged start searching through the houses for any survivors. That is when they come across Orkney
(hoorayforholeymocs) This Matoran is trying to just tooling up to get out there. They see "Red" and Ragged and ask for their help. "Red" takes the Matoran and they start running back to the ship. Imp at this point finally reveals how much damage his gun can do. This results in all 5 Gamma team members (orkney being a part of it now) flying through the air after the almost nuclear-like explosion that was just set off. The Toa of Fire and Plants is demolished.
Orkney introduces themselves to the other members. "Red" becomes very protective of Orkney, as she does not want them to suffer the same fate as her.
And then that completes Gamma team. There are a couple of other members that were going to join, but sadly died in the process of being rescued. I do have canonical deaths of all these characters (except Ragged who after all the deaths, returns to the Hero Factory) but I won't get into that because it's sad
This was also a highly condensed version of the Gamma Team story, so I hope you enjoyed it. I realise there are A LOT of problems with these MOC's, but I don't really want to fix them as I am happy with the way they are. These were created when I hadn't sorted out my Bionicle parts, so there are some better parts I could've used, but I couldn't find them in the massive boxes of pieces.
I shall be posting my future MOC's on this topic so look out!
and thanks for reading this far!
