Hero Factory - Titan Stormer
Preston Stormer. Leader. Legend. Hero.
About this creation
If you look at my Self-MOC ZORK it probably doesn't surprise you that white is one of my favourite colours for MOCs. I'm not sure why exactly, but I guess it's because of Kopaka, who was my first Toa back then (and blue might be my favourite secondary colour to go with white because my first Slizer was the Aqua Slizer).
So I was of course really looking forward to Stormer XL (especially since the first Breakout wave didn't got any white sets - at least we got some blue with Surge). Although I already designed my very own version of Stormer, I wanted go give him a titan form as well, since he's the leader of the Alpha Team.

And so I built Titan Stormer.


Titan Stormer's design draws much inspiration from Optimus Prime as he appears in Transformers: Prime (said design itself is based on the Optimus Prime from the Bayformers - which I don't like that much, to be honest).


Compared to Stormer XL, he's sleeker and less Hulk-like.


To fight all kinds of evil, he got flip-out blades. I had originally planned to give him arm cannons as well, but putting swords and guns into the forearms was kinda impossible.


Yes, this picture is also a Transformers reference.

Now let's take a detailed look at Stormer.


The legs. They're pretty much identical to the XL legs, only with silver armour (the shells on the inner side are also smaller) and the feet turned around.


His thighs are pretty much standard.


A look at his back, whitout the armour...


...and now with the armour.


His front, again without armour...


...and now with armour. As you can see, Stormer uses the basic torso design, but adding the armour to his body was quite tricky.


Now to his lower arms, which were the most complicated part.


As you can see, the swords rest underneath his arms when not in use. Designing the arms was much more complicated as it might seems due to the length of the swords (which makes it really hard to store them in a fore arm). Luckily the large wing shells help to hide them.


Now a few shots without the shell on the inner side.


I hope you see how it works now.


And here's a nice group photo of the three teams.

Well yeah, this is Titan Stormer, the last MOC of my HF line. I might start to work on some bad guys now.

Don't forget to rate and comment him.

Is it too much to ask for LEGO to make these types of sets?

Quoting Artemiy Karpinsky I like this model, but still I feel some awkwardness here. Stormer just doesn't look like himself. Also, if you been inspired by TF:P Optimus, you must remember that he has wide shoulders and 'athletic' body. Your Stormer lacks of muscles IMO.
Thanks for the input, I'll might try to add shoulder armour to him.
