About this creation
Name: Maethor
Element: Ice
Race: Unknown
Affiliation: Order of Mata Nui
Tool(s): Blade of Atvor, Ice Bow
Mask: Kanohi Pakari, the Great Mask of Strength; grants the wearer tremendous strength, many times that of his own.

BIO: Eh, I'll be posting the stories of Maethor on this blog: Maethorneth.wordpress.com



The epic kneeling pose. I thought this angle and pose looked cool.



Full front view. Pretty bombad, huh?



Side.



Back.



Other side.



Here you can see him compared to my ruler. He's over a foot tall!



Another cool sword pose.



Kick! It was hard to balance him like this.



In addition to sword skill, he is an expert at Im'Lera and thus can fight hand-to-hand very well.



He is highly proficient with a bow as well. Rather than lugging around a heavy quiver full of arrows, he uses his control of Ice to form an Ice shard whenever he needs to use his bow.



Comparison with Inika Man, Ruler of Mineshafts!!



Maethor: He brought no honor upon himself in his death.



In addition, I revamped Matoran Maethor. I like this version much better than the old Matoran form.



Here he is with all my other small MOCs.


Creator Commentary: (who cares about the fourth wall anyway?)
FINALLY! I got this posted. I'm very pleased with the way he turned out after several weeks of building. I think I may have the most unique self-MOC ever. He is not a Toa, he wears a White Pakari (to put that in perspective, there were only about 10 for sale on BrickLink and only one in the US, which I bought), he also uses a bow. I can't think of many selfies that meet those three criteria. Anyway, comments and constructive criticism are appreciated as always, and don't forget to check this website to read the stories I write about him.

Quoting Dark Aeon Nice SM! My only suggestions would be to widen the shoulders a bit and to make the shins a little more rounded out, as they look a little flat-ish in my opinion. Otherwise, it's all great!
Thanks! The torso is first on my to-do list for V2. I actually really like the lower legs but the upper legs will be scrapped for sure. You seem to be the only person how thinks it's 'all great' =P

Quoting Reaper . This is an excellent start to what I can imagine will be a succession of versions of this quite original Self-MOC. I actually like the tall-and-skinny look, it's something not done enough. The colours are nice, and pretty well-balanced, and the overall look and feel of this MOC is good (to get the general look-and-feel right early on is impressive). It's not perfect, as I'm sure you can understand (though that Matoran form is pretty sweet, I must say). He is perhaps slightly too tall, and for a V2 I'd advise shrinking him a little. GOing just for height doesn't always work, you need to balance everything out. However, I have confidence that you'll improve on what is an excellent early form of this MOC.
Thanks for the comment. I definitely think he's a little too skinny but I'm glad you like the overall look of him. It's definitely not perfect but a new version will definitely be on the way soon.

Quoting Toa Trexal Looks great! But I think it's a little kibbley on the shoulders though. But still, great work. Well, I guess I have another selfMOC to build. :)
Thanks. I'm not extremely proud of the shoulders so they'll be re-done with V2. I'll be looking forward to see your version :)

Quoting Commander Spencer Pretty swanky, though I feel that he's too tall. I would recommend making the torso, lower legs, and upper legs a little bit shorter. As of now, agreeing with Stormjay, he is suffering of Garrett syndrome, and is too unproportionally skinny for his height. Other than though, though, I do quite like his colors.
Thanks. I guess I'll have to bulk him up a little but again, he's supposed to be skinny.

Quoting Stormjay Rider Now then... let's get serious. As a titan-sized build, he needs to have a decent amount of bulk to him, to avoid Garrett syndrome. As for it being based on your tall and skinny self, you could make him into a set titan size, which is "taller" than most of them but will make his current bulk level a bit more proportionate. That could also solve a couple other problems, such as the exposed TECHNIC in his upper legs. Concerning the colors, I can clearly see his main color is white, but the silver secondary color is concentrated in certain areas, and unless he's supposed to be a Toa Nuva I would say either give him more silver in other places or scrap the color altogether (except for the weapon.) My only other issue is the Bohrok teeth in the stomach, they sort of offset the normal skinny triangle of the torso.
Garrett syndrome? Is that a thing now? =P As for the amount of silver, I wanted to make his skirt armor silver but I only have those parts in white :/ The torso, well, it's definitely not my favorite thing I've ever built. When V2 comes around, the torso will be the first to be re-done. Anyway thanks for the (longer) comment. I'll be sure to take what you said into consideration.

Quoting Stormjay Rider Too tall too skinny 0/10 (I'll write more when I'm not pressed for time, maybe.)
I was surprised when I came and saw such a short comment from you =P 0/10? Really? He's supposed to be like me, tall and skinny.

Quoting Bumblebee 5253 So.... Umm, yeah. I guess lets start! He is really tall. As tall as Jamus, but he looks taller. Not a problem with good representation, as I look at his full figure it does look really really cool, but there are improvements to be made. He looks messy in some places, especially the lower torso and a little bit of the upper arms and legs. I think you should show more views of the MOC, rather than just poses and weapons and such. I'm not a big fan of the Metru leg armors on his upper arms, they distract from the flow some and they seem to spin around a lot, the jet-booster-things look cool though. I actually really like the legs' build, I actually think it's all good, except the lower legs could use some bulk on the sides to fit in with the HF armor. You can never go wrong with attaching HF 2.0 feet to the Inika feet either (some silver ones would actually look really cool I'd bet). The Samurai-like things don't look all too bad and they don't seem too restricting, so that's a plus. I'm not sure about the crotch, spike, thing.... <:P. Actually, now that I look more at the upper legs, they could use more flow and white parts on the sides as well. The red ales and ball-joints also seem really distracting, but I'll let that slide. I really am not a fan of the spiky things coming out of the lower torso either :/. I like the heartlight attachment, and the new mask choice is really cool too! I also really like the new Matoran form, but maybe you could fill in some parts a bit better on it ;). Overall very nice job, and can't wait to see more! :D P.S. Yes, this wasn't as long as I expected but whatever XD.
First off, thanks for the criticisms (I love how the BIO-MOCcing community is not afraid to constructively criticize). The point of the height was mainly so he could not be confused for a Toa, I'm happy with it though. He's actually my tallest MOC yet. You're probably right about the pictures but I wasn't sure what else to take a picture of. For the lower legs, I wanted to fill in those semi-exposed ball joints but my only white HF armors are being used on Matoran Maethor. For the upper legs, I'm not entirely satisfied with those but I really just wanted to use those Visorak frames for legs and they seemed to work alright. The upper arms, yeah they do spin a lot; not sure if they detract from the overall flow of the build but I may change them for something else. My only gripe about the Samurai armor is that it's white while all his other main armor is silver so...:/ and the front...well...ugh p3rv3rt =P I couldn't come up with a better solution to it though =P I might try that with the HF feet. I actually have a pair of silver ones (almost traded them to my brother 0.0). I thought the spikes were a nice addition but when I get around to doing V2, the torso will be the first thing re-done. I think I addressed all the points you made =P Thanks for commenting!

Thanks. I'm really happy about the mask.

Quoting ~ Hazeroth Nice job! I love how it came out! I like how he is more special by not being a toa. I also think the mask goes well with it. Great job!
Thank you! I was a bit worried my mask choice would not go well with him but I'm very satisfied with the result.
