I always wanted to make a sea monster MOC, and i think this is one of my Best MOCs yet.
About this creation
The Taniwha (tanifa) is a mythical lizard like or sometimes sea serpent like monster from Maori culture, seeing as I live in New Zealand i thought would be a cool idea to integrate some of the country`s culture into my MOC
As for the design of the monster i decided to use hero factory parts to make it sectional, and the combination of the Aquagon head from this year and Hewkii`s mask from 2007 (which both are from an underwater theme) worked very well, giving the impression of gills. The electricity idea came from an electric eel, and i thought it would be cool to add a little bit of that in.
The boat is dominantly of Asian design. The idea for the boat came from the ships from the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean film in Singapore, but with a bit more classical ship design in there. The sail was made from the 2 sails from destinies bounty stuck together to make one big sail which i think was very successful.
Hope you all liked this MOC. Thanks for looking. Brick Out!
