I'm finally finished with it! This is the reason (besides it being the holidays) that I've been fairly inactive on the 'pages recently. I've been working on this for a few weeks, and I finished today (the day I post this).
About this creation
All right then, sit back and relax, or lean forward and get excited, either way, I hope you enjoy this, it took me a few weeks to complete, and the main part of the creation are the mechs, with the diorama to accompany them. Each mech has studs to stand on near their own environment, as shown below.
A aerial view, the diorama is split into four sections, each one for each mech, the pictures of the mechs will be showing up down below, towards the end. Keep in mind this is not one of the "four elements" kind of thing. Sure, two of the mechs represent fire and water, but the other two are really random.
Another shot of the black environment.
The blue environment, complete with a couple small waterfalls.
One of the waterfalls I added to to the blue environment, using a simple technique involving 1x2 1/3 elements and round studs.
The white environment, nothing too fancy here, but I've always liked the colors white and gold together..
The red lava-y environment is by far my favorite of the four (tell me which is your favorite below).
(Fun fact: Did you know magma is just lava below the surface of the earth, and is called lava only when it breaks the surface of the earth?)
But wait! This thing splits open!
It seemed like such an awesome idea when I started it, but it soon lost it's luster when I came up the dilemma of "WHAT THE HECK TO PUT INSIDE IT?"
So this is the best I could possibly come up with, some random scared-looking muscly guy, captured by who knows what, thrown into this wood-floored prison, and who knows how he got down there?
I sure don't see any doors...and look, his chains aren't even attached to anything, nice.
And now, the mechs! The red guy (whom I dubbed Csilquk) needs that red plate because he can;t balance on those tiny hooves of his without it.
From left the right: Csilquk, Sinterve, Flaugua, and Lithve.
The following pictures are of each mech, my commentary will be missing from those pictures because I'm lazy, so I'll say right now, each mech is almost fully posable, and each one is unique not only in color, but in design as well. Each has different joints and armor, legs and shoulders, and heads. The basic design of the torso for all three was pretty much the same though, enjoy.
Well that's what's been keeping me busy (besides Christmas) for the past week or so. I'm leaving for Mamaroneck, New York on Monday to move the last of the furniture and stuff from my deceased grandparents house, and I'll be back on Wednesday, so I won't be busy on MOCpages for those days.
Sorry I didn't make a Christmas MOC, this one took up most of my time, and I hope everyone had a happy holidays and a Merry Mahanachristmakwanza (to leave no religions out).
HOW DID I MISS THIS!?!?! anyways, this is amazing! the diarama is very impressive with the fire and water displays especially. all four mechs are very custom and original, like four gods of their realms. the unfolding ability and the little prisoner inside was very creative. overall, very awesome creation.
Very nice, I can't decide wether I like the red side or the blue side most, the lava is very good but so are the waterfalls. lol, that guy prisoned in the center :P Great job on the mechs as well, on that part the blue mech is definitly my favourite, I simply love the dark blue combo with the use of flippers and droid fighter paterns, great job
WOW! This is amazing dude! One of the best MOCs, every single mecha is awesome and these landscapes are even better! My favorite landscape is the magma one ( of course :) ) but I also like these waterfalls, my favorite mecha is the white one, not quite sure why. The guy inside is an interesting idea, bu i would put something epic inside, something like a mighty wizard, a sphere or a rainbow. Again awesome MOC dude!
Quite like the white one. Personally, I find white and anything works well together; white and blue, white and grey, white and black, white and green, white and red... they all work. As for black, well, black's pretty much the same.
I see Fire, Dark, Light, Water(was originally going to call it Ice, but Ice is part of the Water element.). And the way I see that prisoner: I see that he was captured by an enemy, and the mechs are looking for him.
I love every aspect of this! The environments are great! The lava area is my favorite, but the blue area with the waterfall is a close second. The mechs are all great, but poor Csilquk could use some better feet! The white mech is definitely my favorite of the four, but only just (they're all amazing). I have an idea for who the guy in chains is - his human form could just be a disquise! He could actually be the most dangerous being in the universe, and the mechs have come together and used their powers to imprison him! Just a thought. Anyway, this deserves Motd. Great work!
I like it

excellent job! I especially love the white mech the colour scheme is amazing and it's weapon is pure awesome. Over all an obvious 5/5
A perfect diorama with badass mechs, all fits in so good! I especially like the white one but that's just because you made in that awesome colour scheme! It actually looks a lot like 4 elements to me. Look, water, fire - ok, black - earth, white - air. It looks a bit that way.
