I might have came out of my small builder's block with this new MOC. My entry to the BCBS May 2012 challenge. Making "useless" pieces useful. Enjoy!
About this creation
Zlato is a robot made for war(There are countless wars going on in my "storyline", every robot is made for war. Sorry.) against nearby threats. Zlato was planned to be built for this particular war, but when he was completed, the war had already ended. The scientists who created Zlato tried to shut his system down and store him for further use in future wars. Unfortunately for the scientists, Zlato broke out of the facility to lead his own "life" independently. Zlato is now wandering the cosmos looking for villains to stop.
Dang, you got a nice moc here, and what I like about it is the huge amount of customness and uniqueness in the moc. I like the thing in the chest and the feet that look really good. There's also the jetpack on the wings (I LOVE the idea of you using the makuta's glowing ball as fire from a jetpack). Who am I kidding, ALL OF IT'S GOOD!!!! Just awesome man! :D
I like him Overlord. Especially the "Sam-H"-ish legs. The trouble with this competition is that the notion of "Useless" is entirely subjective. =P Things I think are useful might be the next MOCist's garbage. Anyhoo; GREAT work!!!
In my oppinion, none of those parts are useless. I've seen them used for many things, although this has to be the best! Also, useless is more of a personal oppinion than a fact. Remember kids, the only useless part is a broken part! (Actualy, some of my broken parts are more useful than the normal ones, LOL)
Wow, Draconic has zero memory. Lego winds string around cardboard, rubberbands around those parts. Epic moc, as usual, love all the greebling. Though I don't get what everybody has against rahkshi spines.
Weell, what a lovely creation. Regarding the contest, it was sort of hard to figure out the 'useless' pieces. Seeing them at the end helped a lot, but the amount of useless pieces compared to the rest of the structure seems rather small. I'm not sure is that a con for the contest, or you're just too good at hiding them :P Still, I wish ya luck.
