I’ll be honest the first time i posted this MOC on the Message Boards as an WIP and I was surprised how it was mostly well criticised by the community, besides of it being my first real post I didn’t know what to write.
But on to the MOC massive changes have been made due to the fair criticism it got. Most of the bulk has been removed due to balancing issues in the torso. Everything except the head and legs have been reconstructed to increase stubillity and articulation.
Here is a comparison on the to models.
Another issue other people had with the original was that a Zamor sphere was sticking out of the torso and I also didn’t like the look of it therefore I contacted a gap the zamor sphere fits right into.
One of the things people liked about the original was the sword so I kept it due to its design and colour.
But now I added a new weapon for him to hold and it has a function (I don’t take full credit for the weapon) it is a blade that switches into a scythe…
I deal that this weapon fts his concept and them if you had played Metroid Prime 3 the corruption of phazon (get it) takes the souls of you comrades (like death who uses a scythe).
Here is a back shot.
Back to the metroid theme I gave him a Samus like arm cannon witch also has a function (because it’s a protector gun)
And one last thing due the arms being more simple allows for more articulation and I enjoy the look of the arms more the the previous version. Adding more white to the build made the MOC look more clean and replacing the metru blue pieces with transparent light blue makes him stand out.
However an issue that I encountered was adding colour (mostly white) to the head, this was difficult due to the fact that not a lot of the pieces that I used did not come in the colour that I needed (white).
