The Scarab Lord
About this creation
The inspiration for this guy, began with the head. The upper part of the head actually hinges open to reveal his face - so he's a bit like a knight in armour. The shiny black plating made me think of the chitinous armour of a beetle, thus he became "The Scarab Lord" (although I did consider calling him Ringo Star)

The body was a real challenge... The extra limbs and prodigious amount of armour plating, meant that, rather than relying on the conventional beam-torso construction method, I had to build a complex custom chassis.

He's just under 12" tall but stands up really well - without any extra support. His custom core is very bulky and weighty - but fortunately the legs are designed to lock-out under the strain of all that upper body mass.

I <3 the Scarab Lord, let me know if you do too :)

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant This is probably an excellent MOC, but like Johann said below... I can't tell. >.<
I see what you mean, it is a bit of a mess of limbs - and the shiny black plastic doesn't help make things clear either. I'll definitely take more pics, but in the mean time - have you tried clicking the image to zoom in?

Thanks for the feedback guys :) Next time I get the camera out (probably when I finish my next MOC) I'll be sure to snap more pics of this guy. I actually did film a 360 turntable video - but my Canon camera will only output .mov files, which are useless to me :( I only have windows Movie Maker and unfortunately that doesn't like the .mov format.

I think by "hardly" Johann meant "strongly". More pictures would be great. From what I can see, though, brilliant use of HF parts. :D

looks very nice, with an interesting design. I hardly suggest posting more pics of it, though. You know, other views, details, this kinda stuff... it give us more of a notion of the MOC, so we can judge it better.
