Mingo's Raikou for March
One of the Legendary Beasts of Johto, Raikou is the embodiment of thunder!
About this creation

A side view of Raikou. I decided to use levers for the stripes on Raikou's sides, and I'm fairly satisfied with the result.

The most complex part of the MOC: the head. The eyes and fangs are held in place by the black robot arm piece and the lower jaw. A 2x1 tile keeps the eyes from falling backwards.

A rear shot. This MOC literally uses almost all of my purple pieces, all of which are from two Knights' Kingdom sets. A rubber band (complain if you want, but it comes from a LEGO set!) holds the rear stripes and purple arm pieces in place.

I like to make most of my MOCs about minifig scale, so this was definitely a challenge! Nevertheless, it was a fun build. Please feel free to leave comments, thanks a lot!

Quoting Sam Ellis Great build with some ingenious techniques here! I love the purple puff on the back, great idea. The face is also awesome. One thing though, could you change the title or put in the first line the format of the contest? (Mingo's Raikou for March) Thanks, Sam
Whoops, sorry! I'll do that right now! And thanks for the kind words!
