Yay! The eighth version of my self-MOC is done. Wow. I guess this really goes to show you never stop upgrading your self-MOC. Iíve got a few new things on him, and I like all of them. Draconic just keeps getting better and better!
About this creation
Element: dragons (duh)
Power(s): dragons, dragon fire.
Currently fighting for: Mata nui
Weapon(s): staff, and Wind Broadsword
As a Matoran Draconic lived in Onu Metru, Metru nui. He was a talented blacksmith and enjoyed making small scraps of armor for himself and occasionally other Matoran. To find material for this armor he would go and dig in caves for stone and other things for shaping. Once when he was doing this he found a stone he had never seen before, it was a Toa stone. The instant he touched it he was turned into a toa version of himself! But then, a huge winged snake that must have been guarding the stone attacked Draconic and he was knocked unconscious. The venom from the snake destroyed all Draconic's memories as a Matoran. The snake then retreated into its den and threw Draconic into some kind of portal. Hours later, Draconic woke in a strange, foreign desert. He was then found by a Skrall warrior who said he was on Bara Magna, and then took him to Tuma, the Skrall Leader. Tuma then trained Draconic and was amazed by his Toa powers. Tuma made Draconic a general over the Skrall army and, when the Bone Hunters joined the Skrall, them too. Draconic was a feared and mysterious general among the Glatorian.
However, after Tuma was killed by Mata Nui, and the Scarabax beetles formed the giant sculpture of Malum to scare off the Skrall, Draconic did not run off with all the other Skrall. But stood there, looking at the Scarabax beetles. He knew they were Scarabax, and he knew they were fighting for the right side. It was that moment that he surrendered to Mata Nui, and joined Mata Nui in his fight against the Skrall.
When Mata Nui changed Draconic's Skrall blade into a Toa weapon, something strange happened. Draconic's memories from when he was a matoran started to come back, because he was in the presence of the Mask of Life. And so, from then on, he was known as: Toa Draconic, Master of the Dragon.
Years later, Draconic and his new friend and fellow toa, Flicker, were attacked by a strange band of raiders. Unfortunately, Flicker was killed in the attack, and Draconic has sworn vengeance for his death.
Draconic has now embarked on an epic quest to find out whom and what caused his friends death.
Now the MOC!
Back of Draconic. Epic, eh? :P
New CUSTOM feet! Yay! I think they look pretty good, except for the fact that they arenít very posable. :(
Back view of the custom feet. Hero core greebles FTW!
New shoulder armor. They are attached by rubber bands, so purists, criticize nicely please :P
New CUSTOM upper legs! I worked for a while on these, and I think they work pretty well. They kinda add that skinny-in-some-places-bulky-in-other-places-dragon-type-look :P
backside of custom upper legs. More greebles!
now some pics of Draconicís new weapons!
His improved Broadsword of the Winds. (still havenít changed the name!) I really like this hilt design better.
closer look at the hilt.
Draconicís other weapon, his staff (AKA, ďBig StickĒ according to Draconic.)
closer look at the staff design.
Now for some poses with his sword!
cool pose ;)
Now his staff:
Pic with Cheesy and Breakout Furno.
Well, thatís about it for now, so see ya later!
C & C appreciated!
Ok, so this version of my self-MOC didnít have many changes, but I think they were pretty major changes. As I might have mentioned earlier, my self-MOC is probably going to be the best bionicle moc I have, due to my lack of bionicle parts :í( so if I ever enter any contests or have to do anything to do with custom mocs, I will have to use my self-MOC. I hope everyone understands. Bye for now!
P.S. I really stink at photoshop, as you may have noticed from my icon. So... if anyone would be kind enough to make a poster for Draconic i would be very grateful! i would gladly favorite builder them or make their self-MOC if they wanted.
Quoting stephen greene
i Like it! although i'd add more armor if you have any, kinda of a skinny waste, and the right colors, to make a custom arm, but i like it! you are now one of my favorite builders!
I actually have a new version (unposted) which has all of those things :P
Your self moc has come a long way, and is very impressive for it's size. I think that maybe someday you should make him into a titan! If you'd like me to make an epic poster with your self moc in it being epic like this one.- http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/340201 I'll need a picture of your self moc that has better lighting so that the ground and backdrop are the same color. If you'd like one, what kind of background would you like? Also I have many kinds of text that I can use, some look spiky/deadly, techno like, and even ancient or alien.
Excellent job! I love the feet and legs, and where can I get me some of those wings? If anything, I think the chest are could use some armour over it, but all in all it's a very well-put-together MOC. Oh, and your poster's up.
