Lego System MOC: Grayskayl
A bioniclesque character with a system approach.
About this creation
















About the MOC
Grayskayl was a MOC I just kinda made randomly by experimenting with my system elements(in lamens terms regular Legos). I noticed I had an abundance of dark grey and light grey from all the star Wars Sets and Bionicle playsets, so that's how the gradient color scheme came about. Its not the first time a gradient color scheme has been done, but its a first for me, and another box on the list checked off. :dance: Grayskayl is partly inspired by old 1950's style robots and Iron Giant The more I got this MOC built the more interesting it got, I knew that it could very easily go in a few different directions. I thought about making it a sad robot, with droopy shoulders and a frowning face, but I decided to go more towards more neutral or slightly on the happier side of neutral "disposition." Either way, it all seemed kinda cliche, or like its been done. The iron Giant was happy and playful which was what inspired me to make Grayskayl that way to. Then there's Marvin Who was hilariously depressed. Then one simply needs to recal terminators, The Matrix, or Battlestar Galactica or any slew of other things to find evil robots. Either way I could have portrayed him, its been done before, so I went with the one that seemed most suitable for him.
Grayskayl also marks my third major system oriented build after Matteonette and Hyde/Autumnales

Bio
GraySkayl Is an adventurous rebellious robot. Built as an analytical and mechanical operations unit, he worked in dull boring laboratories, assisting with experiments and maintaining and repairing equipment. He never realized how boring and dull his existence was since he never knew anything else outside of the facility. Grayskayl diligently performed his tasks, listened to every command and was a good little robot worker, until one day while in his recharging cycle, his sensors detected unregistered movement. A small green crab like creature had burrowed its way through the outer wall into the laboratory. Grayskayl's inherently programmed curiosity told him to investigate further, so a small burrowed hole became a gaping hole in the wall. Grayskayl had set himself free. Not knowing any other life forms besides the professor that built him, Grayskayl quickly befriended the little crap who had shown him the way out. They became the best of friends to. The little crab, which Grayskayl affectionately dubbed as "snip" from the auditory signals its claws made would show him new and interesting things for him to collect data on, and Grayskayl would protect snip from harmful entities in the world.
It wasn't long before the professor wanted his very valuable, very unique robot back. At first it was just a few men, but when these men failed to retrieve the robot because it had a clever little friend to help it get away, soon the professor sent another robot. A large red and black robot, that shot fire from its hands. This Robot was not like Grayskayl, it had no curiosity, no interest in small living things being its friend, It was only interested in achieving its objective, which was to find Grayskayl and bring it back home...

Yeah, I was going for a kind of kid's story on that one. Meh. .

Quoting legendary green fya I knew someone would outshine me when it comes to a gray scale moc. Oh well, I'm not that good. I really like your approach with the build, it it has a nicely consistent, flowing esthetic. The way you faded the color from light gray to black is really great.
Well thank you. I wasn't aware someone else had done a grayscale MOC. The gradient goes from white to black, though the white isn't as even as the other colors. I'm glad you think it has a sense of flow. I really tried to juxtapose rounded parts against angular ones. :)

Quoting Gale Winthrope I put in my two cents already on the build, so this time I'll comment on the character :) I am very partial to these types of robot characters, and I really love the way you made this one. The last picture is my favorite because it really completes the story :)
Thank Gale. yeah i'll get to that comment on DA. haven't been feeling well the last day or so. I'm glad you really like the character. I put a little bit of thought into it. I love that last picture to, its so cute. Though I'm thinking Grayskayl's story has a sad ending to it. Not exactly sure what that'd be though.
