Name:Cobalt Gender:Male Title:Fallen Toa, Dark Hunter Element:Water Weapons:Gun attachment, Blade Attachment Story:Cobalt was an average Ga-Matoran that lived in a small village near the sea. At first the village was unnoticed by the rest of the world but as sea trade increased the village became a prosperous city. This sudden rise in wealth is what alerted the nearby demons. During the night the village was raided by the demons and most of it was destroyed. The city's leader assembled a team of Matoran to hunt down the demons. Cobalt's sister, Luna, was on this team. For many days and nights, the demon-hunting Matoran followed the demons that destroyed their city. Little did they know that the demons were leading the clueless Matoran to their leader, Ragnarok. When the Matoran reached Ragnarok, they were all instantly slaughtered. The news of this tragic event reached the village and all hopes of vengeance quickly evaporated for most. Due to the destruction of the city, sea trade decreased and eventually withered out. With sea trade being the backbone of the city's success, it fell into a depression. The city was the poorest it has ever been. Cobalt realized that the demons not only killed his sister, but destroyed his once beautiful city. He longed for power, the power of a Toa. Ragnarok, seeing an opportunity, tricked Cobalt into making a deal with him. Cobalt sold his soul to Ragnarok for the power of a Toa. Cobalt would continue on to join various Toa teams but would be kicked out for his inability to work as a team and his obsession with hunting and killing demons. After being shunned by the Toa, Cobalt turned to the Dark Hunters for help in killing the demons. Cobalt will continue killing demons and Ragnarok will continue to spawn them, creating an endless cycle of pain and grief for our Fallen Toa.
A good entry, with some nice bulk to it, but I find those thighs not fitting. It kind of sets off that gunmetal and minor blue color scheme. I kind of have to grind my teeth looking at those shins, it looks like you've got the parts stuck permanently in those bohrok head pieces. I'll give you 7 points and a salute for doing the irreversable move, though you may have a chance of undoing it with those peg-ends of the 3-length rods.
I like the alternating blue-black palate for the armoring and mask, and the closure-work on the back and sides is nicely done. The Popeye-sized forearms might be somewhat over-proportionate, but that's a minor nitpick. Nicely chosen details like the blue-trans tubing and the compound armor to form the anterior torso surface are good choices, 8 points. Cheers!~
Good entry, well proportioned. I like how under that lighting the blue bits seem to lean toward a purple tone. It's just that the more I watch it, the more it says "nothing to see here, move along". Still, it deserves a full 6.
