WHERE'S THE BLACKSMITH!?!
The Mad Blacksmith originated from the depths of Karzahni. Rumors say he is a rebuilt toa by Karzahni. His magnum opus some also say. Either way, this Blacksmith prefers to be left alone to his craft. The "Mad" in his title comes from the fact that he makes strange looking armor, weapons, blasters, and shields. You will often see the mad blacksmith's work in the hands of criminals and villains. Karzahni often ships the items the blacksmith makes to random places, not knowing what to do with them. Naturally the blacksmith noticed this and has grown a slight resentment towards Karzahni (or in the blacksmith's eyes: The Jealous imbecile who doesn't understand anything).
What is his name? No one knows and the blacksmith doesn't plan on revealing that anytime soon.
So I was MOC'ing very recently and I had got the idea for a Karzahni style MOC which was inspired by ElJay's recap review of the 07 Karzahni set. I thought to myself: I like Karzahni, but how could I make him better in my eyes?
This MOC took a little bit to make. I had to do some experimenting here and there in addition to using Karzahni as a refrence. But enough talking, let's get into the specifics of this MOC.
Let's do a quick 360:
Before anyone says anything: I had to put the small grey part in the back of the one foot where it is. I needed the part for another MOC and I couldn't find another black piece. I am going to replace it as soon as possible. For now, just pretend it's a black piece...and it only shows up in that photo by the way.
and let's also pretend the blue pins don't exist... Why Lego? Why did you forsake us?
Back of the torso up close time!
Yes, it does use Inika/Piraka parts. But I was sure to do something different with them. Also the body looks lacking without those two lower side additions. Trust me.
Hey, what about those legs? I bet you think they impede mobility...
NOPE! He can actually stand up straight. And it actually looks normal... unlike a certain green, bestial huna armor wearer I know.
So that is The Mad Blacksmith. Tell me what you guys think of him.
And before we go, Mad Blacksmith: THE THINKER:
