Here he is, Toa Obsessionist, my self-MOC, as I wanted him to be! And on my fourth MOCiversary, too. How convenient!
About this creation
Obsessionist was one of the Metru Nui/Mata Nui matoran, who was turned into a Toa after the defeat of the Rahkshi. He left his home island in search of his destiny and spent some time on both Xia and Zakaz.
He does not seek out combat, preferring to use his engineering skills and wits to keep the peace.
He uses his Akaku to see enemies before they see him, and to see the inner workings of machines.
Obsessionist is not the most powerful when it comes to his element of fire, but he is proficient and ingenious with its use.
He encountered Zamor Spheres on Xia, and keeps a several varieties stocked in his ďquiverĒ, ready to launch from his custom-designed launcher. This launcher is light and easy use for long-distance sniping.
Although he can use his staff offensively, he often uses it as a lever or wrench to construct his mechanisms.
He also keeps a coil of rope with at all times- you never know when itíll come in handy!
All the forms of Obsessionist I have right now- Matoran, McToran, Toa, Hero, and Technic.
Obsessionist stuff: Iíd like to think of this guy as the MacGyver of the matoran universe. I love the Legend of Zelda, and this piece of official art- my favorite- inspired how he wears his tools. Iím glad to finally have a decent version of this guy posted! I posted this version of Obsessionist before, but even then I was very unhappy with him. The build looked awkward and lumpy, and though I liked the color scheme I really wanted to use some purple. (By the way, that's a prototype purple Zamor sphere! Yay!) I didnít want to use a red Hau- not only is the Akaku my favorite mask, but the red Hau is just to iconic of Tahu. Iím still not content with him, but I do think he looks good enough to post. Like so many self-MOCs, heíll probably be tweaked as time goes by. Any C&C is greatly appreciated.
If youíd like to make your own version of Toa Obsessionist, firstly, Iím honored! Secondly, feel free, just please do leave a comment here so I know.
Heartfelt MOCiversary Monologue: Well, it's been four wonderful years since I first joined the 'pages. My only regret is not backing up those MOC pics I lost in the big crash. I remember when I first got my account. I posted this page on October 5, 2009, my first. How wonderful it was to receive those first few comments, and realize what a wonderful Lego community this was. As Iíve grown older, a better builder, and hopefully a little less of a newbie, it has been a privilege to be a part of it. Iím constantly amazed by the wonderful creations and people I discover here, and only regret that I canít spend more time exploring MOCpages. Many thanks to all who have viewed or commented on my creations, and even more to those who have posted the creations Iíve admired. Thank you Sean and the MOCpages team for running the site and making it such a great place to connect. Iíve had a blast, and know I will continue to do so.
This is really good but the arms and legs need a bit of work and is suggest trying to color layer the moc Abita more it alwayse adds the icing to the cake per heaped a tiny bit more greebling on the arms so it matches the chest but this is seriously awesome keep up the great work!
Cool, but what you need now is a sigfig of your self MOC! Lol, all jokes aside, I really like your toa form. The only thing I would improve is the neck. It's really weird having that one technic axle just there. But really nice job, and congrats on four years!!! That's a really long time.
Chro is right about the neck but to me it is too thin for him maybe you can add some parts to him which I am not too sure off. Either way the moc is cool, I love the red and purple scheme which is not commonly used.
