Welcome to the Antidermis pool!
As you can read in the title this is a topic for my WIPs of the revamps of the Makuta MOCs entered into the Brotherhood Project. In case you haven’t read the announcement in the project topic, let me explain what this new part of the project is about again:
I started the Brotherhood Project because I wanted a complete Brotherhood of Makuta, but realized that I never would be able to come up with enough Makuta myself ina any reasonable amount of time.
But you see, I’m also a passionate collector of Bionicle sets and like to have things on display, which is why I have started to revamp the MOCs entered into the project. Yes, building 100 MOCs is quite a goal, and no, I don’t expect to be finished with this anytime soon, but dang would it be awesome to have 100 Makuta MOCs all together.
In this topic I will post WIPs of these revamps whenever I have something substantial to show, because I figured I should a) give the creators of the original MOCs a chance to influence me in how to build their Makuta, b) opinions in general can’t hurt, and c) it will be your job to keep me from getting too repetitive in MOC design
I’ll always mention the Makuta’s name and the builder so you can look up the original yourself if you want to.
Also be always aware that these are WIPs which means that you might often notice missing parts or miscoloured parts - simply because I ran out of certain parts.
That out of the way… here you go with what I have so far:
Makuta Irutra, original MOC by @ToaPanda
Makuta Reppirax, original MOC by @Sciencegiraffe
Curently only the sword, I originally planned to use a silver G1 Kopaka sword, but I have to say that the Air Katana looks quite nice, too. What do you think? The white and dark grey will be replaced with black eventually.
Makuta Sachel, original MOC by @Sammythekat
I hope I got that “spindly and kinda creepy” look right this time…? Lacking a head, obviously, which means that I might still change the neck.
Makuta Krika - my own MOC, but I figured I might as well add him
Some of you might alrady have seen him in that Makuta Contest. he is currently missing three parts and his scythe still has silver Bohrok eyes instead of black ones.
Somehow I feel like he’s missing something, but I really can’t say what exactly - perhaps you can help me there.
The only thing that I am aware of is that you can look through his chest (that Ultimate Dume Kraahkan) from the side.
I’m just wondering if maybe I should scrap everything except the lower legs and the head and start anew… On the other hand he doesn’t look bad at all…
Makuta Tridax, original MOC by @Toa_Heatwave
Only the torso is important here. Since I’m not going to use that ribcage piece that Toa_Heatwave used in his MOC I figured I could go for something interesting instead. That Pakari will eventually be purple and the orange and yellow will be replaced by black and/or purple, too. This is really an early stage of the MOC.
Wll, that’s it for now. Feel free to give comments and/or criticism! Whenever I have something new to show I will.
