Overlord Galaxus, self moc of Instant Noodles in Fenrek style.
About this creation
This moc is Overlord Galaxus and serves as the self moc for the builder Instant Noodles more well known over on MOCPages.
I was having another moc block and didn't know what to build, and then the iconic image of Galaxus' head design started to swirl around in my head. So that was all the inspiration I needed to do my own take on the iconic being.
This moc uses a few new techniques I've picked up recentley and also is another one to have a completley unique body/torso design. It's going to be one of those mocs I'm quite proud of but can't remember how it's built.
The lower arms and upper thighs are almost identical, albeit from about 1 alteration. The upper arms are completley new which are incredibly simple but also have a nice effect. I'm quite proud of the mid-leg section as the knee pad actually bends over with the knee and can hold it's position without flopping about. This is probably the first time I've made an enclosed knee joint that actually has armour that flows with it near perfectly.
I'm not at all happy with the feet but I couldn't think of anything else to do. They don't look bad at all but they're not what I wanted either.
I decided against weapons for this guy as everytime I thought of one it drew me to the many weapons the original Galaxus has and I didn't want to plagerise so I focused on the being itself without accessories. Making my own rendition of someone elses moc is one thing but identical weaponary is another.
Overal, I'm very happy with this guy, he uses newer techniques (for me) and defines some areas of my building. I hope Instant Noodles approves of my rendition.
Okay, I gotta know: do you EVER SLEEP? You seem to average a MOC-a-day, and that is simply insane. I'm lucky to get one upped every few months... (This is a FINE TribuMOC, btw. Love the original and think this is an admirable homage). Cheers!
