This is a MOC of BZPower's mascot "Hapori Tohu". It was built for a contest run on BZPower back in 2008, where it promptly won first place. Five years later, and it's still one of my most popular MOCs on Flickr.
I remember this guy! Before I joined the online community I always used to try to copy this design because it looked so regal. Superb design, brick integration, NPU's, the whole shebang. I'm a huge fan of your work Pat and it's great to finally see you on MOCpages!
I think it was Steve the Squid who shows us this magnificent creation. I truly love the shoulders, they're brilliant; but the head with the gears is also wonderful. Marvelous, dear, I understand why it is so famous.
