Ah yes, I can finally get back to posting MOCs. And hey, I may have actually made a somewhat decent MOC for once.
So there are some things I want to talk about specifically in regards to this MOC, but let’s address the elephant in the room: The torso build.
Yes, I know what it has. I did that on purpose. I have been stating for a while now that I have always wanted to build a feminine looking MOC. And honestly I think the torso build I picked up and modified is just fine. The proportions look normal and it legitimately looks like armor.
Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about the MOC.
First things first: Insert joke about rule 63 Takuma here.
Inspiration: I swear to god that I was subconsciously influenced by Mesa from Warframe. The color scheme and theme is certainly there.
Color scheme: Yes, I know what the typical toa of lightning color scheme is. I think Black and Yellow works. Yellow is usually used to represent Electricity. Now about the gold, I think it fits in with the keet orange. But who knows? I may change it out in the future. And the silver; Chest armor be chest armor…plus gold is a little hard to come by with those parts.
The Akaku: I had nothing else that looked good on this MOC, okay? I was originally going to give Thundra a Garai, but it didn’t look good.
The CCBS: I usually don’t mix Technic with CCBS, but there is enough Technic here to give off the appearance of G1 MOC. Plus I was able to add on the ponytail…so yeah.
Backstory: Ah yes, the Backstory for Thundra. She is a free lance toa of lightning who travels around the matoran universe looking for trouble and crime to bust. With the help of her Vortixx informant and friend, Thundra knows where to go to serve justice. There are many rumors about Thundra floating around. Some say she is prototype toa while others say she was on Lesovikk’s team. But no matter what the rumors say, one thing is for sure: get on her bad side or break the law and you will regret it. Also it should be noted that Thundra has rather viscous rivalries with Tuyet, Lariska, and Helryx. One would think Roodaka would be included in this, but surprisingly no. It has been alleged that Roodaka is Thundra’s informant, but this is the furthest from the truth. In fact, Thundra will be the first to point out how unrealistic that is.
Dang, I didn’t think I would come up with that much backstory…
Anyways, tell me what you think of this MOC. Anything I have said in regards to the build of the MOC is in no means any way to shoot down criticism and critique, I just wanted to provide insight into some of my stylistic choices.
