Penumbra
The Great Beings' perfected guardian, in the footsteps of Umbra.
About this creation

Umbra. All who know the legend of the Ignika know his name.
Powers of light granted by his creators, the Great Beings.
Assigned by the Order of Mata Nui to protect the Mask of Life at all costs, from all adversaries, whether their intentions by noble or iniquitous.
But where Umbra fell to the wit and might of the valiant Toa Inika, the Order knew they would need a soldier who would not.
Despite the fact that the Great Beings initially created the original Umbra, the Order was able to reverse-engineer the technology.
With this they extrapolated and improved, building the ultimate lightspeed guardian: Penumbra.
As Umbra before him was named for shadow, so too was the new generation; as this was a more refined Umbra, and as a lesser shadow is its own edge, thus he too was christened Penumbra.

































Aw yeah.

So that's that! Just a very in-depth side project, which eventually morphed into this guy. I really wanted to use those grey Hau as shoulders but I couldn't get a good connection with the proportions I was looking for, so I stuck 'em on the shins. Then I decided to make him a Bioracer, but I really just wasn't feelin' it story-wise. So I thought, hey, what inspired the Bioracer craze? Umbra, of course. So there you have it.

Feel free to use the crossbow and scythe designs with credit.

Quoting R.K. Semaj The colorscheme is, well, penumbraic, for lack of a better name. Maybe a darker blue, but the blue that is shown shades just as dark(shadow would not be complimented with shines). thinking of witty caption for pic 14... thinking of witty caption for pic 14... thinking of witty caption for pic 14... .....
Actually this is Lego's darkest shade of blue, haha. And besides, the color scheme was not really supposed to reflect the character himself; I first built the MOC and then later decided to make it be an Umbra-inspired character. Also, LOL, what's up with picture 14? :P

Quoting Dr. Pinkie Pie, PHD ~ The blue plates on his shoulders make it look like he has a cape. Cool MOC!
Hmm, didn't notice that before. Anyway, thanks. :)
Quoting Daniel Janči This is really amazing moc. The most amazing thing on him is his colorscheme- is very very amazing. Good job!!!
Glad you like it, thanks! :D

So sad... so true... XD

The part that stood out to me was the creative part usage, like the shoulder guard that are from racers (not sure what to call them), the chest greebles and especially the upper legs using those hip pieces - Win! :P I can kinda see why you got a bit of hate for the masks on his shins, but I like it personally ;) Plus the wheel feet are cool, gotta love those Umbra-inspired bio-racers. Over all this guy just rocks, nice color scheme, nice feel, good nice for hos role in the story line. Very good, I felt like writing a long comment and there was lots to say haha :D Keep up the awesome MOCing!

Quoting Steve The Squid Well I love the shoulders, and the feet are pretty good too, but the rest just looks thrown together to me, not up to your usual par. But I only saw a bust shot I'd say it was an epic moc :P Maybe try again? I can see that the dark blue is tough, I'm trying to use it right now and it's a pain! But those hau on the shins are just pure lazy. They don't even look like they're supposed to look good :/
LOL, you've told me a few times that I need more variety in my MOCs... then when I try it you don't like it. Haha, that's fine by me. Thanks for the constructive criticism. :)

Excellent parts usage on his thighs. And everywhere else, for that matter! He really has a sort of paladinic OoMN look.

A great moc, I like that you included the wheels on he feet, like the original umbra. My only critique is that i find the waist a bit thin. But its nothing big.

It iz loveeng it. I like the scythe (SCYTHE POWA), crossbow design is creative, with the use of a visorak bod, NPU. As said, the vahki waist parts could be more refined, but his awesomeness helps drown that out. Last thing, the Head. It looks great with its custom ness.

Quoting Wertman 8 WOWZA! I love the Crossbow weapon, And the skull is cool! I think you should add some simple socket pieces (nuva "hands") to the balls sticking out of his thighs, and The Torso looks a bit... odd... but still. :)
Thanks, Werty. Sockets didn't fit on the Vahki waist due to those rounded liftarms. Like I've said, the torso (and the rest of the MOC for that matter) was supposed to be just a little abnormal. :P

Ah, so you did use those masks. I personally think he'd look better without them, but I think you're right, they do add a sort of character to him. :) Nice job man. Love the story too.

Hmm. I don't know, I was going for emphasis on some of the dark grey parts and stuff as well.

Quoting Raviel Ze MOCist! Nice colorscheme. Love the bulk here, it's great. But you seriously need to make your backgrounds white soon. XD
Why do you say that? I do have a white background, but I prefer not to use it, because it's slightly difficult to fit some of my MOCs on the background.

Quoting Dragonax lord of all things black and creepy AMAZING. All I can say XD Well, not ALL I can say, but most of it. I like how you still kept the "Heelies", and I love the way you used the skull on the chest! I suggest adding some HF armor to his feet. Use the smallest piece (3), and put an Exo-Force hand in the back.
Thanks, and yes, I know the technique. I considered it, but it wouldn't fit with the Hau shins, as there wasn't enough space.

Quoting Chronos Omega ...no, he isn't named after Umbara, sorry. :P Umbra is actually the Latin word for shadow.
Oh, well that makes sense. Umbara being all dark and such. I know I've never heard the term before, but it seems so obvious that I want to facepalm myself. Facepalming for no good reason, seems a little empty when you look at it that way.

Quoting MCLegoboy ! The darkest shadow is a Grey guy with Dark blue accents; but of course! I have some blurbs and a question. I see he wears heelies. Is his name a reference to the planet Umbara from Star Wars? I think his shinslook weird with the Haus on them. It isn't a bad concept design, but weird where you put them, but I'm just a System builder, I don't know what I'm talking about. :P I found that he has a skull in his torso, that's cool. Cool guy and he's got some nice weapons, too.
Yeah, the colors aren't supposed to reflect his name- Umbra's didn't. Which brigs me to my next point, no, he isn't named after Umbara, sorry. :P Umbra is actually the Latin word for shadow. Glad you like the skull, that was fun to include. Yes the shins are strange, but that was, again, by choice. I wanted distinct uniqueness, but not too weird, if you know what I mean. Anyways, thanks! :D

Thanks. I think it may be the proportions; they were a little off, just by designer's choice. :P
