2012 Bio-Cup R1: Kyle Peckham VS. Steve the Squid
"Never once have I been MIA. I've been wounded, shot at, praised, tortured, and everything in between. These things only make me a better soldier." - Ushtar to Axonn on Voya Nui.
About this creation

2012 Bio-Cup group homepage.

My opponent, Steve the Squid's entry .

Category 22. Military Toa/Hero – Something on the lines of War Machine, from Iron Man 2.

Like any normal, self respecting matoran of Mata Nui would think of, Ushtar always dreamed of being a toa like his father and older brother. Being a toa ran in his family's history. When the time came, Ushtar was given a toa stone and was send on his way to join the ranks of toa. By the time he was done training, he was at the top of his class and was an excellent fighter. He was good enough at his job that he was drafted by the Order of Mata Nui(OOMN). He was later placed into the OOMN Army, and was sent to Voya Nui to assist Axonn and Brutaka in retrieving the Mask of Life. Ushtar led a small squad that was with Brutaka, but Brutaka later turned on them. He killed most of the squad, only leaving Ushtar and another toa to lay on the ground in pain. Axonn later found them, and with the help of the Voya Nui Resistance Fighters, nursed the two back to health. Ushtar is currently helping Axonn and the loyal OOMN members track down Brutaka and find the Mask of Life.

Yes, his story takes place on Voya Nui (2005-2006 storyline) just after Brutaka went rogue.

Name: Ushtar
Species: Matoran
Element: Earth
Occupation: Soldier in the OOMN Army
Mask: Hordika-mutated Ruru, mask of night vision
Weapons: AR-15 Automatic Rifle, Double-barrel Shotgun, and Combat Knife



Sunday, Bloody Sunday by U2

Yes, a song related to war was needed.

TO THE MOC!



Front view.



Left side.



Back view.



Right side.



Close-up on the headset and bandolier, any self respecting soldier should have these 2 things.



Close-up on the chest.



Close-up of the legs. The Rahkshi armor is wedged in between the Keetongu shields, and are supported in place by 4 LEGO rubber bands.



Close-up on the backpack. This was a little bit of a challenge, I wanted to have a back that looked good and could support a good amount of weight on it. The backpack is a bit heavier than you think, it sort of balances Ushtar out when standing.



Close-up on the back of the lower legs. It flows very smoothly with the other armor.



And finally the antenna. No soldier's backpack is complete without a radio, and an antenna is needed in order for a radio to work! Only reason the antenna is cut off in most of the pics is because it's taller than the actual build. The antenna DOES fold down, so when it is folded the build is just under 25 CM. With the antenna, he stands at 29 CM, but in order to get decent pictures, the antenna had to be up for some of the poses.

And just to prove it, here is a picture showing his height.



POSING TIME!



Here Ushtar holds his AR-15 automatic rifle.



Here Ushtar gets ready to spin around a corner and shoot. I love this pose AND pic!



Ushtar holding his shotgun.



Ushtar holding his combat knife. It's nothing more than a ninja/samurai sword with an old style Technic connector and Technic pin on it. Simple, but it's a great scale for an actual knife.



Weapons. From left to right: Shotgun, AR-15, Combat Knife



Here is Aurelius again. He sits as my 2nd most popular build on Flickr, and 3rd here on MOCpages. I have gotten nominations for him in the MOCIE Awards (he is kinda nicknamed "The Centurion"), and he is my secondary self-moc. This pic just is here to show the upgraded blades I have given him.



Finally, my trio of bio-mocs. These are all that survive. Galvis in front, Aurelius/Centurion on the left, and Ushtar on the right.

Now for a few WIP shots I took to get some CC from on Flickr.

FINALLY!

Thanks to everyone that commented and rated. This made it possible for my first moc ever to hit the Popular This Week section! Thanks everyone!

One of interesting tidbit of info, Ushtar is actually the word "soldier" in Albanian.

Comments and CC is appreciated. Good luck to Steve and judges, do your thing!

There is just something about the burl in those lower legs, Kyle. Look of strength and solidity, just awesome (and I don't think the elastics detract, either; I say use 'em when you need to). Overall as a revamp I'm surprised to say I prefer this update, as you've moved AWAY from a glossier black colorscheme to the silver - but I do. It IS a better look (and the old one wasn't bad). Like the chest and the layered backpack, too. CHEERS, M8!

Quoting Steve The Squid Hey, whats going on? I thought there were more than three judges! Congrats on making it, I guess I'm a little relieved I dont have to build on vacation, but Im stil bummed.
Some of the judges don't comment on the builds. They have a private judging group where the decisions are made. Sorry, you put up a great fight though!

Quoting The one and only, S.T.S The MOCist from the South Sick! Wassup? Been a long time, eh?
Haha, it's been too long. Nothing has changed much, I got Popular This Week and a lot of other accomplishments. Nothing worth mentioning. :P SO, what's new? We should take this convo to our private chat group, if you remember it. :P

Quoting Steve The Squid No! I just need the last two votes! >:D I dont want my bringing a backpack full of parts on vacation to be for naught! I'll say that I'm still hesitantly confident in my entry, but let the best man win! Too bad this super close match means that the bio-cup is gonna lose one awesome bio-builder in thefirst round! (Though it looks to me like callan and alva christo may not make it either!)
So true! It's a dead heat between us, I'm glad that we both are fighting valiantly. :P If Callan loses, we know there is gonna be an upset this year. Best of luck to you Steve, it's been great versing you and may the best man win. :D

Quoting Berial . This is a very good entry! This match-up is certainly one of the toughest to judge, because both entries are indeed very good and fit the theme very well, but I must say that, at least to me, your opponent nailed it. It is a hard decision, but my vote is his.
Well darn. Is there anything, in your opinion, that could be improved upon?

  July 1, 2012
Your wish is my command. Nah, JK. The build is overall very nice, the legs remind me of cargo pants in a way. Looking at some of your WIP shots I felt as though you could've tilted the Hordika head up, using it as a helmet, with a different mask or face underneath. The forearms could perhaps be different, but they're not bad as is. The whole creation just flows very well, too. Good luck against Steve!

Quoting Steve The Squid Doesnt look too poseable >:) good luck! Oh, and I'd appreciate it if you'd stop complaining anytime somebody praises my entry, they're entitled to their opinion.
Dude, I was joking. It's called smack talk. :P Actually, it's very poseable. Despite the look of the build, the limbs move very easily and it is very poseable.

Quoting Terilis the Dark Angel Coconut Bomb! This guy should have some of those, they would certainly complete his arsenal. Because coconuts are cool. Anyway, stupendous build, and I have to say the rahkshi armor has always been a favorite of mine. Nuhvok Kal shields, not Keetongu though.
Actually, I have 2 Keetongu's, I got them from there. I'm just stating what set they came from. :P
