Hola, TTV Message Boards!
This MOC is called Shouk and he was a very quick build thrown together mostly with a colour pallet more in mind than a concept:
Maybe you can guess the colour pallet had in mind.
Anyway, starting from the feet I wanted to use that old matoran foot as a mid-knee piece and I did but in doing so I made a unique leg shape that I decided to carry through the rest of the MOC and ended up creating some kind of samurai thing.
His center of mass is pretty weird because of the legs and their connection points but this MOC was a quickie and I didn’t want to spend too much time with it. That Kakama was fun to stuff back there though. It has no real place there but I had an open space and decided to stuff it in.
Not much to say about this MOC because of how little time I spent on it. It was really a warm-up or a creative outlet before I hunkered down to chew into a big project I’m working on.
Despite how simple it is this kankle part that rotates with the shoulder is something I’m pretty proud of. I love to see armour that does a good job of not restricting articulation.
I also didn’t write any lore for Shouk here, the closest thing I have is probably the fire motif that he has and the crest of things on his back but really not much. I just keep him cuz I think he’s neat to look at.
All constructive comments are appreciated and thanks for adding to the conversation!
(Lighting choices are known to be questionable, I’m experimenting but I think this new setting works well. Let me know!)
