Oreum, the Nothing King (for the BCBS November Contest) . First was the castle, now is the king. . "Yes, there's nothing here. It's my realm, after all."
Species: Unknown (rumored to be a Great Spirit).
Titles: Fallen King, King of Nothingness.
Personality: This character is very mysterious. No one seems to know about him. The very few ones that met him, were treated with cortesy, but they were forced to leave him alone again soon. He seems to know lots of things, so some people think he's even a Datarian... Or similar.
Main Weapon: None.
Secundary Weapon: Spear and shield.
Theme Song: King Knight.
Character Song: None.
MOC Status: Assembled.
Tadaaaaaaaaa. A very slim king! (NO, HE'S NOT BASED OR EVEN RELATED TO SLENDERMAN)
Very, very slim... And simple, too. Oh, I hate those blue pins. I don't have them on black, either, so... D=
The torso is very greebled. In fact, the Mata head is the biggest part I used on him. Probably my first only-made-of-greebles MOC 8D
Head. I don't know you, dears, but I love it.
The arms is very simple. I'm not very happy with the spiked elbows, but I didn't have enough parts for not using them.
And now, since the main theme of this month is 'ultimate flexibility without using balljoints', let's study the points of articulation on this MOC, ok? First: the feet. They can be rotated 360 degrees, and be bend foward and backward.
Knees: like human ones.
Waist-legs joint: the legs can be raised in any of the four main directions: front, back, left and right.
Waist: he can bend fowards.
Head: up and down. I don't want to be... Conceited, is the word?, but I could come up with a full-poseable head, I'm pretty sure of it. However I liked this one a lot.
Shoulders: allow the arms to rotate ot raise. One of my favourite parts of this MOC.
However I made a little mistake here: the cape blocks the raising movement, as you can see. If you want to see if I didn't lie when I said this design allows full movement, please try it yourselves. The cape is a pain to put on and off.
Elbow: bend and rotate.
Wrist and hand: the wrist are like the ball-joint one: all directions allowed (all directions allowed for a wrist, obviously). The hand hasn't got the movement from other designs (he can't thumbs up, for example), but the basic ones are allowed.
Now, and since my English is kinda horrible when I try to explain, I'll add some images to prove the high poseability of this royal man.
Pose #2: kneeing.
Pose #3: rotating kick.
Pose #4: crossing arms.
Pose #5: pointing.
Pose #6: funky walk.
Pose #7: sexy lying... kinda...
Pose #8: bowing.
Pose #9: relaxing.
Pose #10: running.
And here one of my favourite pictures. I was going to use it for the main picture, but finally I didn't. Huh? Did you recognize this throne? Soon, you'll meet his real owner... Well', I'll hope.
Oreum: So... Are we finished yet?
L.A.: I'm afraid that the answer is negative, His Majesty. We need to take some more pictures.
Oreum: As you want, creator, your wishes will be granted. What do you need from me?
L.A.: Thanks, His Majesty. Here you have some weapons, please make some poses with them for the camera.
Oreum: With pleasure.
With his weapons: a spear and a shield. I don't think he needs weapons, but, meh.
A picture with a random toy from my childhood. After I finished building this guy, it suddenly remind me this samurai warrior. I searched it as a subject for him, but... Well, I remember the warrior to be a bit taller xD
Again, Lianyu as Inika comparation model!
Oreum: Oh, my! You're very... "well-developed", for someone of my height. May are you interested on working for me as a royal soldier?
Lianyu: ... I think it's the opposite... You're veeeeeeeeeery slim for a MOC of this height! ... His Majesty.
Oreum: Well, it's time for me to say goodbye, my friends. Come to my castle one day to visit me!
Hi guys! I can't believe I managed to build this guy in only three hours. I mean, I only had a design for the shoulders, the rest I build it while I was editing the photos for the comic (yes, I'm very late, I know, and I'm the one who's pissed off the most. I want to post it next week). When I finished I was surprised, I usually need more time for most of my MOCs (also, I usually modified them a lot during the next weeks after finishing them). But here it's.
The main idea for this guy was that shoulder desing. So simple, and so useful, I was very happy with it. It will allow to give full poseability to simple MOCs, like Matoran or robots. But I didn't know in which kind onf MOC use it. Initially, I though to make a bird. I had the wing design, too. But at the end, I didn't think I have all the parts, and then I found 'the head': that thing of the wheels of Speeda Demon. And I wanted to use it as a head. Oh, and the cape from Zurg. I wanted to use it on a mighty Etherian from the Royal Army, but I didn't have a single design for it, soooooooooo...
Meh, I speak too much these days. I'll end here.
Here is the link to the BCBS group. And I'm done.
Thanks for passing by! Bye bye, my dears!
