Bio Cup 2013, Round One
About this creation
Contest: Bio Cup 2013



Name:
Astrav
Occupation:
AOMN Spec Ops
Alignment:
Lawful Good
Allegiances:
Army of Mata Nui [a very militaristic, less secretive extension of the OOMN]
Origin:
Fa-Rela
Powers:
Elemental control of Magnetism
Kanohi:
Garai
Weaponry:
Dual SMGs, dual short swords
Status:
Unknown
Personality:
Sarcastic, rude, and slightly arrogant, but brave and compassionate behind this facade... either way, he's all business when on mission or in battle.
Bio:
Astrav was one of thousands of average Matoran kidnapped and forcibly changed into Toa with the Destiny Rend Engine (a powerful item held by the OOMN that can alter a being's fate) and manufactured Toa Stones. These new Toa soldiers had their memories cleared, forgetting this process, and were trained to be basic soldiers for the conflicts taking place on Spherus Magna.
Astrav was unique in this respect; his artificial Toa Stone was faulty, giving him less control over magnetism, but in compensation, extra strength, speed, stealth, et cetera.
On a recent mission he disappeared, and while this kind of thing is not uncommon for him, Astrav has not reported back to his superiors. It remains to be seen what has transpired.








































The pictures didn't come out very well, and I wasn't really able to edit them to look better without screwing them up in another way. If you're finding it difficult to view the MOC, then I suggest you turn your monitor's brightness up.



I've gotten a bunch of people complaining about the ankles... I added those thin Technic parts to the sides to break up the profile of the legs, because IMO it'd look bad if the entire leg was 3-wide with nothing wider or thinner.



Good luck in the Bio Cup.

Just to say, unless if you intended to, the Garai is the Mask of Gravity. The Mask of Kindred is actually Hahli's and Lesovikk's Faxon.

WOT?! I haven't commented on this yet? A crime. Anyway, this is fantastic! I happen to love that technic-y frame. Excellent work, Chro!

Great! Love it! It's nice, the smaller built characters are sometime the best IMO. You build them beautifully because you pack many great details into them.

Quoting The Traveler "Nope... canonically, Kanohi can be remolded to any shape and still retain the same power. Just like Norik's Pekhui." Sorry, I still don't know how to do quotes. Anyway, I guess that explains it, thanks for the info.
No problem. You can't reply to people on someone else's MOC except by copy/pasting their text, but in a group or on your own creation, you just click 'reply' under the comment.

Quoting The Traveler I just want to point out that he's wearing the Kanohi Faxon, not the Garai like you said.

Great MOC. The yellow looks fantastic with the dark blue and black. Is there a way to remove the Inika armor on the crotch/waist though? It looks kind of stuck-on, and doesn't really flow. Otherwise fantastic looking creation.

Nice entry, well-built and with a good color scheme. Lower arms could be a bit more covered, its too open on the inner part, and the back is too monochrome. Other than that, not much to complain about, although I would've appreciated some more boldness to the design, have seen you do better. I'll give you an 8.

A nicely compact and complex whole, with functional colors and good mobility. That doesn't leave much to nitpick about, though his all-black backside could've used some color, some of that blue maybe? Love the guns too. 9 points.

I guess I told you about it a bit too late, because the 1st was the deadline. Sorry dude, my fault. Basically it's a big contest, read more here: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/22700

Again, Chro: fearless innovation here. What I like most is the connectivity creation - technic greebling tumbled together in ways I've just never tried, but look great in application. I wanted something to close in the back of the helm, but only for closure's sake. So, no biggie. Not going to affect my Rating or opinion, but, with how good those (are they #3 technic connectors for the sword handles?) bits look as hilts, excellently ergonomic and all... why no articulated hands to grab them? Bah; that's nitpickery. A well-deserved 9. Looking forward to more of the same.

Quoting Yuri Fassio Masterful creation. Complex, playable, visually appealing. You used those yellow technic tidbts to create a truly unique look. Only the exterior part of the upper arm looks too straight to me, but this is still between 9 and 10. Too bad there aren't fractions here. Well, since in the end it won't really make a difference, I'll flip a coin. Ok, it's 10. 10 points to you.
Wow, thanks Yuri. :D

Quoting Toa Infernum Nice! Don't much like the lower arms though. Love the color scheme! Nice gun design. I updated my Biocup entry, would you mind checking it out and telling me if it's better now? Nice work! :)

Nice one. The arms may be a bit too exposed and exo-technicy for my taste, and I don't think they have enough blue. However, the rest of it is cool, I like the guns.

Wow, nice. Although I do think you could've gone for something better, but you're wise to go with this cause it's easier and you'll probably make it through Round 1 anyway. Kinda what I went for as well, except mine very well could lose. XD I was SOOOOO lazy. Great work! :D

Well, you may as well just kill Cramastos now. That's very impressive Chro. As I mentioned on FLickr, I'm not loving the ankles, but it's a minor quibble. What piece is that in the feet?

Hey, Chro-chan (now I realize, do you actually mind I call you like this? Tell me dear if I should stop), could you make me a favour? Can you explain how do you get those amazing designs? I mean, I always thought it was only a matter of available parts, but... I tried to get a design of legs like those... And I wasted a whole day for nothing *sigh* I suppose it's harder than that. My respect towards you has increased *tips tophat*. Well, let's stop pillowtalk and start reviewing, ok? Hmm... I miss a bit more of blue and yellow (at least blue) on the back. That's the only thing I can see to 'improve' (the lower arms bugs me, but I can't find why). The rest is, as I (and everyone else) have stated, great. Love the torso the most, specially the upper part, with the Vahki chests, the shoulder design and chest. Legs make me jealous of your abilities, specially with the gun storage connetion. Two guns with the best design I have ever seen, by the way. Something at the level we expected from you (while I was waiting something bulkier xD), dear. I would wish you a good luck, but everyone knows you'll pass for sure. ;3 By the way, inside the Faxon (Garai), what did you put? Yellow horns or minifig hands? I can't see it...

Great moc, nice use of the yellow accents. The upper arms are fine, but the lower arms look a bit strange to me. I was wondering, is the newer Pirai ever going to be posted as a moc?

Great parts usage with those Vahki torso pieces. I don't really like the arms much, they're gappy. Those legs are pretty awesome though, as is the rest of the body.

Awesome work Chro. Those yellow accents look awesome, and is that a BA HF visor I see behind the Fax-er-Garai? I do feel those pins for attaching his weapons on his back are a little sticky-outy though, they break the flow of the MOC. All in all though, a great bit of work.
