Powers: Shadow and Light

Bio: Valair and those of his kind served as envoys and defenders for the Great Beings. They were also the forerunners of the Makuta and Toa made from pure anti-dermis and energized protodermis.They were equiped with a Halo Launcher (Similar to the Rhotuka Spinners) and had the capabilities of controling the element of light and shadow. They continue to this day serving the Great Beings.
FWC: Sup guys long time no see. I've been really inactive lately mainly cos I've been in a serious moccing block.:/ Havn't built anything for the past six/seven months. (Terrible I know) But I decided to enter this Cup anyway. ;)
This moc ain't all that stunning but im really happy that I've managed to scrape something up. I'm particularly proud of how the shaping of that shoulder holds up with those masks and DAT Rhotuka Spinner!
My main aim was to keep this build clean and streamline incorporating some new techniques I've picked up (Namely using those tohunga feet on the wings)
I'm also quite proud of the poseable torso and the use of the netting was an afterthought though I personally think it works well.
Without the netting.
And one dramatic edited shot. Well thats about it. Hope you guys like my moc and Good Luck to all you guys. I certainly need it cos at this rate I don't think I'll make it to the next round hahaha. XD
Quite incredible, if you ask me. The use of netting on the torso is genius :) . By the way, you commented on mine and Rennoc's comic, so I thought I should tell you that the next chapter has been posted: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/364480 ;)
I like the bravely unique Tech used here, man. Those reverse-stiletto toes are a nice touch, and the compound wing mounts are a little minimalist, but still look good wide-angle. Custom headwork, nice figure props. The little touches make it nice - the mesh wrap, the pierce-clutch of that spinner at the base of the skull, etc. Your 7 Points, Sir; freshly Minted.
Love it! The head, combined with the shoulders, looks even better than it actually is. The halo shooter is a nice touch, The blades as feet give him a cool look, even if standing is a hard choice for him. The torso is great, fits the build perfectly, thought I don't like the net there very much. Well, indeed a marvelous entry, and a tough rival in the 'originality' field =P Good luck, dear!
Very cool entry. It's complex where needed and sleek in the right places. You made good use of standard HF armor without abusing it (one of my biggest problems lol) and you gave it an uber cool head. I also approve the choice of prefab hands, on this scale they work very well. Great work on its shins and feet, I don't know how you managed to pull it off with such grace. It would have worked even better with some more t-m-blue details. Two pieces of advice: try to take your pics from different angles, also stepping back and zooming in reduces the fisheye effect. And man, get a blacklight, this would look awesome under UV. 8 points.
