Mask: Mutated mask of mind control
Weapons: Fire sword
Story: Elaris was part of the toa ere long ago, their leader. In a surprise encounter with a visorak nest, Elaris was snared in a web. He was mutated, and ran away from the group. He lived in solitude for many years, his mind deteriorating. After the great cataclysm, he noticed some matoran pass his cave of solitude on their way to Voya Nui.. He fallowed them to Karzanhi, the mythical land where lazy and poor matoran workers are tortured by its ruler. When Karzanhi (the lord whom the region was named after) left chasing the matoran, Elaris decided to take over the place and rule the twisted matoran. He was destroyed later by the nova blast that destroyed the whole place.
Now, on to the moc:
Here he is in all his glory. I just love that torso :D It's the second time I've used the HF 1.0 appendages for shoulders, and they fit perfectly. Yes, I know his arms are a little long, he's mutated! :)
His fire sword. For the lack of effort, it's a pretty neat little thing. The design is simple, it uses a #4 angle technic piece on the other side, in case you want to use it, just give me credit!
Upper arms. These took a bit of extra thought, since I'm out of ball joints. Aaargh!
The legs. I'm very proud of how these came out, I finally found that stupid fourth red visorak foot! And before anybody asks, no, he's not wearing elf shoes. They're spiky. Some of my family couldn't figure that out. I call them "Death from below". Ouch!
More torso epicness! Note how I filled in the sides with hordika legs! That was trick, but you can learn something from this; if it needs to work, you can get it to work, as long as you have parts left! CAN.
A very bad pic of the wings, his shoe pointy fell off. Look on to the next one!
Thank you! I got four of these babies bricklinked, knowing I was going to do this eventually. And I did!
How I did the feet. Credit me! Another way to conserve good balljoints!
The EPIC custom head. I can't believe how well this came out, and in case you didn't notice, the dark red spiky shoulder armor piece on his neck is attached to the head. The crown was a fun afterthought. Oh, and there is more customness under the rahkshi head, you just can't see it. anyone need instructions?
His big ol' Zap Cannon (hee hee!) This took two evenings to perfect. There is a three-fold design there with was so hard to do with the smooth plates. Those blue sweeper pieces have got to be one of my favorite specialty parts, because you can use them for SO much!
LDD drawing for this is attached. The handle actually has a wheel well as shown in the pic, LDD just didn’t have the part. Make sure to give me credit if you use it!
Obligatory comparison with Zerk. He’s a bit smaller, but Zerk is quite big. Sorry for the blurry pic, not sure what happened here!
My red mocs still alive. Urestis is slowly being cannibalized for his wonderful technic! And Tahu had to borrow a tan leg because I was using one of limelightadmin’s and stupid Tahu only comes with three!
Bye! Don’t forget to rate, comment, and sign up for the epic contest!
