M.O Round 1 - Emissaries of the Sun
"12 Signs of the Zodiac" You know... Leo, Scorpio, Gemini and so on. Choose any ONE of the 12 Zodiac signs and build a moc incoorporating that ONE sign into it. (in case you haven't noticed, you're only allowed to choose ONE of the twelve signs). No size limits. I chose Leo, ruler of the sun as my entry.
About this creation
The 2013 MOColympics. Join today!

Long ago, in unrecorded times, two agents of Apollo, the god of the sun were sent to protect the deity's earthly possessions. These two were Leo, in the form of a cannon, wrapped in shining metal, and Corvus, the crow who tricked Apollo, returning with his soul in a Automaton.
FICTION ENDS HERE.


Alright, on with the description! The second I read the categories, I knew I wanted to make an object or weapon.



The Leo Cannon from Kid Icarus: Uprising was the main inspiration for Leo's form.



Corvus, however, was my idea. I was glad to see that Corvus had angered Apollo in the stories, and Leo was also connected with the sun, so the two could appear fighting as one.



Corvus, in all his grim glory. I imagined him as a tactician for the cannon, considering crows are naturally clever.



Yes, a bit of Steampunk was put into Corvus' body. Deal with it.



A few more shots of the cannon. I originally wanted to do the Masks of Gemini, but sadly, I lacked pieces.



And fade to black.

Thanks for viewing! Leave a comment, or just wish me a good chance. Please. I need it.


God Bless!

Nice build! Hey Thatch, I decided to start doing commission lego models for people! Maybe in the future you would like a model! I'm saying this mostly to advertise, and I really want a customer. Soooo I hope you consider this opportunity to get a lego model from me!

You probably know it already from the MocOlympics 'Round One Scores' thread; I'm sorry to tell you that you didn't made it to Round 2. But you can enter the MIT in case they take place this year. Don't give up and better luck next year. I like your take on the category nevertheless.

Quoting Barrett K. Great build! Really liking the shape of the cannon. But where exactly is the steampunk? Good luck with the judges!
I meant to get a shot of the Automaton's back, which has a key and some other details that make it steam-punkish.

Interesting idea, though the builds seem a bit disjointed. All the gaps don't lend themselves to a clear understanding of what's being shown, I think a bit more sculpting would definitely have helped.

I think it's good enough to post in the group. My suggestion is to make its hind legs a bit more stronger.
