About this creation
SPLINTERZ is a character I made up to be avillainous scientist who also specialises in weapons engineering. He is completley without emotion and thinks of situations logically. This character persona is that akin to Transformers Shockwave.
If you paddle back through my mocs, you'll find one called SPLINTERZ that shares many noticeable physical attributes to the Hero Factory character, Core Hunter.
When I got Core Hunter, I was in another 'playful with new pieces' mood that means I was just exploring what I could do with the new pieces without putting any real effort into it. This usually produces simple Hero Factory mocs but Splinterz was different for me.
He was incredibly simple but I loved the overal style of him. Most likely because my favourite Hero Factory villain is Core Hunter himself and Splinterz was inspired by him.
I decided that with having Fenrek The Rogue's body already availabe, I'd do a lazy revamp of Splinterz. I basically thought back to my Core Hunter revamp and took it from there.
The lower legs are thicker to give him a more imposing look and I did manage to integrate the cannon directly into his arm. Some people wanted this with my Core Hunter revamp but I think it just took more experience at making Hero Factory based weapons before I could intergrate them directly into a chracters structure.
Overal I'm happy with this build as it upgrades a very simple moc of mine to a higher standing.
