Hoodoo
Entry from Praeclari Miles for category "Mech" in the 2010 MOC Athalon.
About this creation
Now for something a little different: a mech powered by voodoo magic!



Hoodoo draws its powers from the many trophies adorning its body; particularly the skull pouch located well...yeah.







Being held together by magical bonds, the frame offers far more agility than a traditional bipedal war machine.



The user wields immense power in the construct. However, there is a steep toll on the mind and spirit.



The chanters continually renew the possession spell put on the construct, and also drop some sick beats ;).

This MOC has been featured on The Brothers Brick.

I'm not a huge fan of mech nor of Aztec-ish type stuff, but this thing is incredible! It looks very mean. I especially like the (I presume) bag of skulls hanging off him - very intimidating. What to say? - The way the operator sits, the chain weapon, the shield, the spikes, the chanters, and a funny take on it all....just excellent!

this is really good. at first i thought that a tribe was visited by aliens and gave them tech a bit of a stretch but when i was younger i did something like that with the exo-force. Any way, this is a great build, awesome imagination, a cool shield design,cool figures, and a very big sac of skulls.

Finally get the chance to comment on that marvellous MOC (problem of slow MOCpages before) - What can be said after all the comments ? Well, usually I'm not a big, big fan of Mecha, but here you've got something that is above 99,5 % of all MOCs in this category. The idea is pure genius and the execution is truly a work of Art !!!

It is very clever, and you are certainly thinking way outside the box (a good thing). The joint design is just too simple for me to overlook on this one to give it a fiver, but it is certainly worth four (4) points. Lee.

really a great entry. Stylish, imaginative. Love the flail and the shield. The dongpit is great, and the bokors are well portraited. I just don't agree much with the arms (as a matter of fact, I don't like them in the slightest) they're blocky and their joints are ugly. Still, this is good for 4 points.

Alex, that's superb. Totally different take on Mech and I hope the rest of the judges agree with Keith. Love the chanters, the skull pouch (there's a Phipson moment to be had with that placement) the bionicle head as canopy looks just right. Great job.
