Three matoran from my Storyverse, based around a design of CallanLOF's.
About this creation
These three matoran were all centred around the same idea, and that is that a balljoint can be inserted into the back of a 2001 Tohunga head piece. Callan used the technique on his version of Pirai the Iron Wolf as a waist design, and showed it to me while it was still a work in progress over Skype.
Kyrrah you may recognise if you were active in the Isle of Thorns RP group while it was still active, and Poliaz hopefully you recognise as my first Turaga MOC.
Name: Kyrrah Gender: Female Race/Species: Ga-Matoran Occupation: Healer Title(s): Elder Prevailing Element: Water Alignment: Neutral Good Affiliation: Carekik Tool(s): Sceptre of Office, Mask of Speed (powerless) Status: Alive MOC Status: Disassembled
Kyrrah hailed from Ga-Metru. After Teridax took over, she was parceled into a matoran sphere, but instead of being rescued by the Toa Metru, she and a few other matoran were stolen from the city. She was lucky to have been found by one of Lord Balin's archons and taken to Korrothis to recover. She decided to serve in the town of Carekik as a healer - a decision not made lightly, as it is an arduous and stressful job at times.
Kyrrah was from the Isle of Thorns storyline - a character of mine. Was the first of the three builds using this design, to give her hair. Also has some clear greebles and some pins to allow shoulder articulation.
Name: Hano Gender: Male Race/Species: Po-Matoran Occupation: Warrior Title(s): none Prevailing Element: Stone Alignment: Chaotic Good Affiliation: Poliaz State Guard Tool(s): Training Sword, Actual Sword, Beard, Mask of Mind Control (powerless) Status: Alive MOC Status: Disassembled
Hano is an old and experienced guard on the island of Poliaz, and bears a long scar across both his mask and his shoulder from a serious run-in with a hidden group of Makuta Cultists. He now enjoys the equivalent of the rank of Sargeant.
Second matoran to use the design, this time with a sort of samurai hair bun. Crack in his shoulder makes his sword arm all floppy.
Name: Poliaz Gender: Male Race/Species: Matoran of Plasma Occupation: Protodermis Refiner Title(s): none Prevailing Element: Plasma Alignment: Chaotic Neutral Affiliation: Himself Tool(s): Sluice, Mask of Invisibility (powerless) Status: Alive MOC Status: Disassembled
Poliaz lived, as a matoran, on the Island of Visorak. He was prone to spending all his money, sometimes before he'd even got it, and threw wild parties - but his job was very demeaning. He was best friends with Cydroc. When the two became toa, Poliaz was quick to sell his powers to the Brotherhood of Makuta for a chance at the Good Life. He got his own island, which he named after himself, which later became one of the most culturally superior islands in the Universe.
Incorporated some HF parts with the old Mata-toran build this time, with surprisingly good results. Plate on his head attaches by that balljoint again, but the shoulders have an amazing amount of articulation. His gear function still works, too, even with the HF core greeble in his back.
Great job. I might actually tweak my two secret lil matoran mocs using the old LEGO design such as this. :)The balljoint design is pretty cool, like how you used it ;) (AND STOLE IT FROM CALLAN...Just kidding)
