Self-Moc, Topsy Creatori… BCBS Rd1
Wearing no make-up and sporting curlers in her hair, Topsy’s been caught in an embarrassing position, so she’s hiding up a tree & behind a flower blossom!
About this creation
Hey, you’d be embarrassed too if you were a self-moc built from ‘Useless’ Parts
by a crazy female AFOL celebrating her 1 Year MOCanniversary by entering you as her contribution to the BCBS’s Month of May Challenge Build #1: ‘Useless’ Parts!

Attention… StoveTop’s now missing!
(Perhaps she's just changed her name?!)



Attention… TOPSY has now been located!
(Yup, name change!)

You can view her comings and goings during a typical day in the pictures below.

Tending Her Alchemical Herb Garden!


Doing StoveTop Aerobics… a girl has got to stay fit!


Sitting Pretty!


Posing In All Her Shining Glory!



And now for that...

Important Data on the ‘Useless’ Parts Used to build Topsy:

#1) 1 trans med blue Head-Up Display Mask & 1 trans med blue Inner Glass Mask
‘Useless’ IMO because… both are very rarely used even for their intended use
(I’m actually one of the few who have recently built with them!)
Solution1…use the display mask spikes to simulate hair curlers!:
Solution2…use it again with the other mask to make StoveTop’s signature hat!
#2) 2 orange Toa Pohata lower arms
‘Useless’ IMO because… they are too long for arms (unless you are building a gorilla) and they don’t have any end joint fittings.
Solution…use them as upper legs and spend more money to buy ball-n-socket joint fittings, then realize that if you don’t want wobbly knees you can only use them with certain lower arm or leg pieces!
#3) 2 white Technic Gearbox Halves
‘Useless’ IMO because… I’m not a vehicle builder, nor am I mechanically inclined. Hey, all I remember from Engineering Statics calculations is that the sum of the forces is equal to zero!
Solution…incorporate them into a lower torso!
#4) 2 medium blue Ball Joint 5 x 7 Arms with dual axle hole at 90 degrees
‘Useless’ IMO because… arms with elbow-like joints that do not move ‘fly in the face’ of what Bionicles are all about… articulation.
Solution…incorporate them into an upper torso!

Quoting that crazy kansan taylor snowden Its definitely interesting.
Thanks, she was built during my 'build fem-mocs phase'. I just thought that there was not enough really feminine female bionicles on MOCpages, so I set out to fill the void! Again thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! :)

Quoting El Barto ! Looks great in the blossoms! Congrats on your MOCiversary!
Thanx... doing a little 'sperimenting with outdoor shots. Oh... and can you find the blossom I used to paste over her face?! Of course, the real story is I was waiting for that mask to arrive in a BrickLink order, but that tree was close to dropping it's blossoms! :)

Quoting Mihai Marius Mihu I think I have already told you that Im not a fan of bionicle but I have to admit that you make one of the best I've seen and you did a wonderful job with the colors. ...and that picture with the tree is beautiful :)
Your comments mean alot to me as I have a great respect for your talents! Yes, that tree bloomed later this year, but, wow, it was worth the wait! :)

Quoting Steve The Squid Yep, use them in a torso! I've done that three times now, every time different.

Thanx Cody... that's a nice way of suggesting that I might be a bit of an egotist... hee, hee! :)

Quoting Gale Winthrope Wow, that is pretty amazing. I love the color scheme, and I must say, Noble Kanohi Ruru has always been one of my favorites. Great use of that white gearbox! I am currently trying to find a use for those cursed things. I do need to say though, as an person who still plays with my Bionicles, I highly value the playability of a build, and those upper legs look very unstable. Beyond that though excellent job. And for fun, I will state that Bionicles did not take up excellent articulation until the Toa Metru. ;)
Thanx... as far as stability... you are partly correct... read what I replied to Leaith. And thanks for the Bio History Lesson! I did not grow up building Bionicles so do not know much of it. :)

Quoting Leaith (Turning 13 on the May 20th) You learn something new EVERYDAY I didn't know your a girl..... ANYWAY she looks great the colour blend was risky and the bottom legs don't look to stable BUT you did very...very well I like it a lot and when I said the colours are risky well YOU PULLED IT OFF!!! Great work!!!
Thanx Leaith (Turning 13 on the May 20th)! Yes, a leg falls off once in a while. But the moc is surprisinly balanced and can be posed in alot of positions and is stable! Oh, Happy upcoming B-day! :)

Quoting Nick Barrett Very nice colours, and those 'useless' pieces have been put to great use :-)
Thanx Nick, those colors have evolved thru time. I actually was undecided on the mask color... whether to use orange or med blue? But, I decided on med blue as that sorta is her skin color?! :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith Using the useless pieces makes them surprisingly useful.
Thanx... they do at that... but then you are talking to a person who cuts out interesting mini pix from junk catalogs & puts them together to make collage themed laminated bookmarks! Talk about recycling! Oh... I've actually used all of those 'used' pieces before once or twice! :)

Quoting Chris Yee Haha, I was about to ask for more pics. I went away for a bit and came back and there were a few more! Where'd you put the gearbox? That is if you used it.
Yes, the photo uploader was misbehaving! So I had to load only 1 or 2 pix at a time! I don't know if you are playing with me or if I called the piece by the wrong name but... the halves are used as her lower torso and they are white. Thanx for stopping by! :)
