Schanez The Curious Little Alien
My entry to this month's BCBS challenge. This time it was to make an alien with unusual or unique body structure. This is what I made.
About this creation
Hallo. I'm back with this very fun build. As I said this is my entry for the BCBS challenge this month. Hope it gets me somewhere, I would like to beat my place of 13th from last month, but we'll see how it goes. Oh yeah, sorry about the dark photos, my usual place for picture taking is... out of order.

Link to the BCBS. Need to put that in there before I forget lol.

I also want to state that this build was mainly inspired by this to build my entry. Which becomes quite evident as you scroll through. I also used the hand design from it for this, hope that's ok lol.

With that out of the way, on to a little story I thought up in the past five minutes for this guy.

Schanez is one of a very unlucky alien species. He is one of a special species that is born with a snake like body with spikes up and down it and a large hand on the end of the tail. Unlike most of his species however, Schanez was born with a desire to learn. He always wanted to know everything he could and most of the things he learned were not enough for him. So at the age of three and a half he built a machine that he could fit his body into and ride in. It worked great for years with few problems. But there was something his parents never told him. Something that would happen to him that would change his life forever. His parents forgot to tell Schanez about puberty.
One night Schanez went to sleep. The next morning he found his mech to be half destroyed because his body was too big to fit. After scolding his parents for most of the day for not telling him that their species was subject to random and sudden growth spurts he spent the rest of the day he spent making the proper tune ups to his precious machine and it will now work until he can create a more suitable machine that can withstand the sudden growth spurts that would plague Schanez for the next couple of years.

Yup. I really made the antagonist of that story puberty. And not a one of you can seriously argue with that. I mean really. So! On to the build!




Ah! Here he is! Wait... Why are you sitting down?!
......... *Whimper*
Oh come on. I need your help here. We got work to do! We got a contest to win!
*Whine*
Come on.



See there ya... Whoa... You really do have long legs...



*Whimper*
*Sniff*
*Whine*

Oh no, I... I'm sorry. I just thought you were joking when you said your legs were really tall. Would you forgive me?



*Cartoon-y dog type voice* Hmmm.... Yah-huh. Ta-da!
Yay! Thank you. So, how about some poses for the audience?
*Same cartoon- voice* Eh. Rh-ok.
Thank you.



So, let's start with a front pic.



Left side.



Back picture with tail held up.



Back picture with tail down. The reason it is usually kept up is because Schanez puts most of his cranial capacity and energy, (Both of which are about ten times more powerful then our own if that tells you anything), into powering and controlling that massive machine that holds most of his currently seventy foot long body and when he is powering it he loses almost all control of his body. So because his tail hangs out he made a small latch on point which keeps the tail from dragging on the ground. When he wants to control his body the machine becomes mostly stuck in the position it was in when he switched to his body. This makes a lot of things very interesting for Schanez.



Right side.



Back to the front.



Oh?! It appears we have spotted an object of interest!



Picking up the mysterious object.



Thoroughly investigating the mysterious object.



Discovering that the mysterious object is in fact nothing more than a plain old Jupiter rock. He does not seem impressed.



Apparently quite angry at said plain old Jupiter rock.



Going to release anger at said plain old Jupiter rock by smashing it with tail.



What plain old Jupiter rock? I don't see one. Do you?



Oh! Something else seems to have peaked his interest. Wait... why is he looking at the camera like that...



Hey! No! Not the camera! It's not food! Stop!




















*Crunch*
*Munch*
*Swallow*
*Gulp*


*Burp*









Great... Now I need a new camera.... Oh well. I guess that's it for today. Say goodbye Schanez.
*Same cartoon-y voice as before* 'Bye Schanez!


Creator's comments: Sooooo..... Yeah XD I've kinda got cabin fever... Does it show? The bad weather over the past couple days hasn't helped. But I am quite happy with how this guy came out. What I am really happy with is that Bohrok plate that I got to cover the chest. This was an all around fun build and I can't wait to see how it comes out.

Good luck to everyone else!

Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Clever Crowe I like the unique design, and came here from the link you left on another, equally unique MOC. Great torso greeble (nice humor in the story, too) and I like the tentacle-dreds. =) Can't decide whether they looked nicer up or down, but I like that you reposition them according to the action of the critter, instead of some kind of Fixed Crest effect. Cheers!
Um, wow. Thanks. I'm glad you like it. The antena were supposed to be something that showed his emotions. It would give him a little more character, and fun, so I put them on. Glad you like them.

Quoting Deus Otiosus I am happy that you actually built the Jupiter rock. Not many people know this, but almost all of the universe is filled with Jupiter rock.
Umm... I'm sorry but I put that in there as a joke. It was supposed to be a joke as Jupiter is mostly gas, yes? So I thought it would be funny. I'm guessing then that I fit into that "Most people" catagory XD

Quoting Vorred 03 Cool entry! I like the use of that Bohrok-plate on the front of his body, it makes him look even more "round" and alien-ish! Like the title says, he really looks curious, most probably due to the hands! I don't understand why "Lego Builders" rated so low for this, since you made something special... does he just like humanoids? Or is he not able to read the challenges... apart from that, I give you full 5/5 for this and wish you good luck in the contest!
Thank you! I was hoping that the bohrok plate would work well with the build since I absolutely loved it there XD and yup, I tried to focus on the hands because those are most of what makes a MOC look curious and investigative. I don't know why, but maybe I just didn't impress them enough with it. Good luck to you as well!

Quoting Dragonax lord of all things black and creepy An alright build, but the story was great XD Neat head design! It definately dosn't look humanoid!
Thank you, I was really hoping that the story would make up for lack of "pizzazz-y" build. XD

Quoting Lego Builders I think the body shape is a bit weird. ;-) 2/5 -LB Jr.
*gasp* really? Oh! Your right! The body shape is a little strange! How unusual... You'd have thought I'd have noticed that by now ;) thank you.

Lol, I liked it. Nice job with the "Jupiter Rock" (since they'd just be balls of gas if anything, lol). Interesting build. Body seems a little large for such spindly legs, though.

Thank you all, much appreciated :)
Quoting StoveTop Creator I was so glad you loaded this. I had mine ready to go, but was debating whether to post it or do another! See, I took the 'comedy' route too! That tail business is a hoot! Best Wishes for this Month's Contest! :)
Well, I'll be honest, the humor was mostly inspired by you and Nate. Besides when doing an alien MOC, the only way to go is humor lol. Thank you :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith The hand tail is a bizarre but interesting design. Like it a lot.
Si, bizzarre was what I was going for. Besides, he had to have a hand somewhere in order to build his mech XD
