This is something I’ve always thought about doing for a long time, I’ve just never really had the time before. Basically, the aim of this project is to create a model of the self-moc of every active member on the boards, all with consistent scale. I have no idea why I want to do this, but here we are. Let’s see who we’ve got in the first batch.
The Slayer of Weebs was the first moc I built for this project, as I had a general idea of what I would do for him, and I’m pretty pleased with the result. The head was definitely the hardest part, as I couldn’t just use a standard head as wouldn’t be able to recreate his black, soulless eyes accurately. He also, of course, includes a traditional weeb-beating pole.
- Hunter by @T4k4nuv4
Chronologically, Hunter wasn’t the second moc made, but I just decided to put him next for some reason. He’s got all of the distinctive accessories; the waistcape, the telescopic eye, the arm-mounted weaponry etc. Of course, the weapon on his right arm is supposed to be an “arm-mounted crossbow”, but due to the moc’s reduced size compared to the original, it just ended up looking ridiculous and I resorted to a generic laser thing.
Senit marks the first (and likely only) female moc in this project. She generally isn’t that different from the original design, but I did end up switching the colour layering on the legs for better consistency with the rest of the moc. I did manage add friction to her gear function for better posing options by using one of those axles with a stud on the end instead of one of the usual stopper axles. Also, yes, the original has a red Huna, but seeing as it was a placeholder anyway I used a more fittingly-coloured mask.
- Whatiri by @MaximusPrimal
I know I said everyone would be in scale with each other, but Whatiri is meant to be a big boy anyway. I ended up using an extremely heavily modified Fire Lord skeleton for him, giving him adequate stability for his huge size. He retains his massive hands from the original, as well as the electrical bursts on his shoulders. Befitting his stature, his lightning-staff-thing is similarly gigantic.
Radrix was a fairly simple procedure of simply rescaling and updating the original. I used the Kalmah foot chestplate of his most recent version, but I really missed the neon orange of his earlier incarnations, so I ended up adding it back in.
David was an entirely different affair, the main problem being that, well, LegoDavid doesn’t have a self-moc in the first place. Usually this would mean I just don’t build anything for that person, but I really wanted to have both brothers together, so I made up something from scratch. I knew right away that I had to use a Nokama Hordika head; it’s been his profile picture for so long that I generally associate the piece more with him than Nokama herself. As for the rest, I scoured his topics for the oldest moc I could with a dark blue head, and ended up stumbling across something called Garmaskull. It had a blue skull spider for a head, but also had Nokama’s weapons, so I called that close enough and got to work. It shares most of the same features, mainly the four arms, trans-purple armour and tapering shins.
- Nekidax by @GoodGuy2006
Ah yes, the edgelord. Nekidax was a reasonably easy build, as, again, I had an idea of where I wanted to go with him, though the elongated spikes on his arms were a last-minute addition. I thought they emulated the unnatural design of the Mata feet on the original fairly well.
- Entropy by @Ekorak
Ah yes, the thicc peacock bat scarf-wearing edgelord. Entropy deviates the least from his original design, but I did end up making an entirely new waist/tail section, hands and thighs. By doing this, I inadvertently removed most of the light grey parts, so I switched one of the parts on his head for a black one to improve the colour balance. I also gave him two Gorast wings for swords in addition to the six on his tail, just because I have far too many of those.
- Jimbob by @CDrifter
And last, but certainly not least, Jimbob. Jimbob was easily the most difficult to build, as you would expect for a model of such a magnificent being. Jimbob features an impressive 6 points of articulation, mainly due to his new legs.
So, there we have the first batch. If you want to see your moc completed ahead of time, just put a request here and they’ll get moved to the front of the queue.
Any further batches will be added to this topic.
