A MOC of this nature from me has been loooong over due. I've been needing to make a "MIni-MOC" in the true sense of Mini-MOCs for a while now, I never really had one till now
I was trying to make a little spider, but once I got those claws made I simply had to honor the design and make a crab. So now we have "Snip," my little green crab. :D
He's just a cute little crab, He could be HF Bionicle or what ever. No real story behind this one. =P His name is snip because his claws are more scissor like than clamp like for a crab's claws. He actually has one silver leg because I couldn't find a sixth lime green one, but we'll say that he got hurt and now he has a prosthetic leg claw thingy, cause its cuter to put it that way instead. :3

oh my gosh, eez so coote, can i haz? i wuvz its!
LOL Thanks. Well you could has if I ever figure out LDD or if the parts to make him are in it. I submitted him to that bricklink MOC thing. They needed an LDD file to further it, I tried messing with it but I couldn't find the parts I needed to even really get started constructing him. So if someone wants to bother showing me how to work LDD, and you acquire the parts needed...Yes u can haz.

Wow! Cool crab! I love the color scheme (looks like the bad guys from Galaxy Squad). I more of a mini-fig scale guy myself, so this thing would be terrifying in my LEGO universe, but just as adorable.
Thanks. Snip terrifying? Never! He's adorable...always stealing things.
They don't allow hyper text links in comments so here's a link to what I'm referring to. http://3rdeye88.deviantart.com/gallery/36499520/Bionicle-MOCery Even if this were to scale with Minifigs, he wouldn't hurt any of em. Its too cute and nice for that. Though I could see him offering rides. :D

Lol, I will try to work on signing up later today. Wouldn't want little Snippy there to cry X3
Well now you're on DA YIPPEEEE! All I can say now, is keep posting there, put your MOCs in the groups, and comment on other people's stuff, you'll get noticed. But till then its gonna seem rather dead. I can promote you in my journal, but you gotta have some stuff to promote. I can't exactly go "Hey check out this cool guy, he's a great MOCer"....and there's like one MOC in your gallery. You can spam your own DA page with your MOCs, its the groups that don't take a liking to spamming/inbox flooding. Put a little love in, and you'll get a lot back though.

D'awww.... He's so cute! :3 I love the size and look. :)
Thanks Gale. Glad you like him.
Dunno how or where else to say this, But I never replied to your "not good enough to be on DA" comment. That's BS there's tons of crap MOCers there, and your MOCs definitely aren't crap. I'm asking you to come to DA and post your MOCs there. This interface is terrible, I hate MOCpages, but love your MOCs, please come on over...PWEEEEEZE? You'll make little snip here cry if you don't. <:'3

Had you not said anything about the one leg, I would've never noticed. Great use of pieces. I love the little guy.
Thanks. Well had I not said something, someone would have and asked why one foot is silver. :P
And thanks to everyone else who commented. Sorry I'm lazy and won't actually reply. HAHA MP is terrible for commenting.

As I said on Flickr *ahem* Ermagawd Bruno crab! But in all seriousness really cool, love the claws.
You're bound determined to comment here and on Flckr aren't you? Thanks Banj. I KNOW RIGHT? I was trying to make a spider, then I realized how epic I could make little claws using those parts, and I just had to. Besides...DA MOCers have crabs. Yes you read that right, DA MOCers have crabs. Rahiden, Welcometothedarksyde,Kakama King, some other MOCers I don't know of, and now me! Tiny little crabs seem to be a trending thing over there. *giggles* X3
