Well, there’s a bit of context to this, but not much. It was originally going to be a Stand for the Stand MOC “trend,” but I decided against it. I didn’t know enough about Stands and wanted to do something more with this guy.
He also filled in the empty spot for a Self MOC in the process!
This guy’s shoulder joints are extremely poseable. They look messy and hard to use, but with positioning them in certain ways, they can achieve poses few other humanoid MOCs can. They are a tad gappy, but I think it’s worth the range.
Overall this is the most articulated MOC I’ve ever made.
He also has two energy-esque blades that are created from his palms.
Also, here’s a brief look at his general torso construction…
I’m still working for a full story, but here’s what I have (by the way, he is not a member of the Bionicle Universe).
Sorano was originally part of a biomechanical race of beings, each containing personality and sentience. It was rumored that when any of them dies, their personality is carried over to the next born of their species. Well, Sorano one day had been exploring a mountainous area, and was doing well until he slipped. He tumbled down the side of rocks, the blows slowly killing him. At this point, he was far from any civilization. He had died. The personality left his body like expected, but had nowhere to go, and his body remained animated. His empty body continues to tread the outlands of his planet, looking for a way to fill his hollow soul.
That’s it! Any constructive criticism is much appreciated!
