"Hello again, little monkey-like biological thingummies! It's Gringat! I've changed..."
This song fits Gringat. It isn't his theme, but Electro Gypsy by Savlonic really can't apply until I finish his shop etc... with his matoran form, so Here's a theme that might work for when Korrothis flies for the first time.
Please try to ignore the weird anime stuff though. I don't understand what it is with these techno songs and anime, but it is kinda disturbing...
"Shapeshifting abilities... I mean, come on! What a perk for the job! Can't open a pickle jar? Get a bigger hand. Having trouble swimming? Grow fins! Want to fit in the big throne in the Le-Korroth tower? Get blXXdy huge. My predecessor, Maelestrakk, must have really liked being titan-sized..."
"It's tricky, this shapeshifting business... If you want to get bigger, you have to consciously work out where all your peices are gonna go, how to get supporting pistons just where you need them and so on. I know a thing or two about mechanics though, so I am able to make myself a lot more agile than the other lords. I can run and jump and dance way better than I could as a matoran - or even a Toa! This sure beats turaga-hood..."
"And I also upgraded weapons. Naginatas are okay, I guess, but I've decided to go the whole hog now and get a yari! I can dismember sacks of straw from metres away now! If only real enemies were as easy to hit..."
"So, aside from the yari, I have a new shield, various pistons, and this mask extension that improves several of my 10 senses. There are a few kinks to be worked out though. I can't actually move my arms that well, and for some reason my leg-pistons keep clicking open while I'm like this so... I'm gonna stick to smaller forms from now on, I think."
"But yeah. Hey, humans? If you have any ideas for me to try out, post 'em in my first MOC page - the one with my toa form ((Gringat#1 - Toa Gringat))? It might be fun - hey, even if it's dumb, I'll give it a go!"
-Used MoonWerewolfAir's torso design, and then tried to extend it to titan size, with rather questionable results.
-The back with the vahki head and piston are my own idea - if someone else has it on their MOCs, great minds think alike, because I have seen MOCs posted with that after I finished this MOC a couple months ago.
-The mask extension is also from Moon. I copied it from her MOC, Ovidu (Or was it Ovidux?), or at least got close enough to it from watching her MOC video...
-And I used a lot of design ideas used in previous Gringat MOCs - like the little red swords on the chest.
-I'm aware this isn't my best titan design, but to be honest, I never wanted gringat huge. I might put my efforts into a proper giant sometime later, after I have a substantial amount of coursework out of the way -_-
-The yari is a historical Japanese weapon, basically like a spear, but with a curved sword-like tip, and much heavier and used in two hands, unlike the one-handed Naginata. Titans like this would be able to hold a 2 hander in one hand of course. And I know yari sounds like Yuri. Funny that.
-And I think my actual Self-Moc won't be in this series anymore. The Genesis versions of my story characters will include Gringat, so when Genesis Gringat is built, He's my self-MOC while this series continues.
So, yeah. Rate, comment, suggest Gringat#4's design in the Gringat#1 MOCpage perhaps. And I have more stuff coming. :)
awesome titan veriosn, but not as cool as the spider and airlord versions, still really cool though. funny, this is the first time ive ever seen this version of gringat yet the way the design works with the vahki head and the titan moon body design reminds me of the body design i used for my best titan so far, pincrix. if you want to see it just look him up on my page idk.
Alright, so here's the scoop on Certavus - Basically he was a Glatorian on Bara Magna after the Core War that shattered Spherus Magna into three parts (Bara Magna, Aqua Magna, and Bota Magna). After awhile on BM, he actually wrote the rules that were used as the Glatorian fighting and trading system among the Agori. In his book, the Book of Certavus, he scripted his techniques and moves in the arena; however shortly after that (I think), he died of natural causes. The book was placed in a run-down arena for all Glatorian to read. Btw hopefully soon I'll post pics of my version of Certavus, but BZP and BS01 already held a contest for a canonical model of him and I think it was Brickeens that won with a VERY nice MOC.
Well, a MOCoff needs judges, so we pick the judges, and then they pick the three themes. They give us a deadline date, and we build the first theme. They judge, then give us votes. Whoever gets the most votes wins that round, and it's repeated until some-one wins.
