Arvach, The Rock Crusher
The second last member of Lotem I need to post, and to be honest, I think he's one of the coolest in the team. It's Arvach! For those of you who don't know he is a revamp of one of my really old MOC's. Anyway, enjoy!
About this creation
"There's no such thing as luck. It's what you do that makes you a hero."
Arvach

(Bio)
Name: Arvach
Gender: Male
Species: Glatorian
Element: Rock
Title(s): Toa, Brother, Glatorian, Blacksmith, Uncle
Mask: Kanohi Kakama
Weapon(s): Large Katana
Story: Arvach is the only member in the Toa Lotem who is from Bara Magna. Arvach was a Glatorian who repaired and fixed vehicles and wounded Glatorian. Arvach was considered one of the best at his profession! That was why he was at Atero every year so that he could fix everyone easily! But when Makuta arrived Arvach was badly hurt by a Rahkshi! This was bad because he was the medic and was fixing everyone who had been hurt! So another Glatorian had to nurse Arvach until he was better, but by the time he was better, Makuta had already been defeated. When Arvach was nursed back to health, Cossy offered him a place in the Toa Lotem, he knew he would be a great medic, awesome Blacksmith and also a brilliant fighter! Which he was!




So here's Arvach! Do you like him? (Read the Fourth Wall Commentary at the end of the post to find out why he looks like he does)



Arvach with his Katana :)



Ready to smash someone :D



Now for the close ups. The feet and lower legs



His big thighs, I figured that since he kicks rocks like Pohatu does, he would get those wouldn't he? Anyway, I'm please with how they look :D



The side of the legs.



His waist, with his belt :]



Torso and Heartlight.



His whole upper half and his mask :D



His upper arms from the side :)



Another look at the upper arms.



His lower arms and his hands :D Probably my favourite part!



Closer look at his hands :)



Arvach: Let's play ball!



About to kick the winning goal!



Arvach: HIYA! Fight me!



Arvach: On second thoughts, never mind...



Epic Duo shot >:D



Arvach: Goodbye Old friends!



Fourth Wall Commentary:
My aim with Arvach, was to make his look like a fat, jolly Blacksmith like the picture below.



Like I said above, he has big thighs, because he kicks rocks like Pohatu does, so you would get those wouldn't you? Also it kinda annoys me how there are no brown MOC's out there these days, so I wanted a brown MOC in the team :D Also I loved my older Arvach :)
In the future he might get a hammer, but I do like his Katana :)
Inspired by Galaxus, thanks mate ;)


Hope you liked it!
Thanks for looking!
Don't forget to rate and comment!
Till next time ;)

Hey Cossy! I know I already requested Tarshduk for MocAdvice, but could you consider doing a review of his newest form (his best and awesomest form yet)? If you can't or feel it's not worth doing again then, okay... Link: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/310772. If you don't want to do him then I have another moc which I will hopefully post tomorrow for you to review. :) Please wait! :)

Yeah, heres a question: HOW ARE YOU SO GOOD AT BIULDING TOA!? I mean this is awesome! It has a great body design (in which the brown visorak legs make it look a lot like Jordan's body) and the awesome leg design the caught my eyes. Just great! And yeah, I had a lot of inactivity with Mocpages because i've been doing other stuff.

Wow, I'm late on Arvach this time, but the 60 likes alone are enough to show that this is one of your better Toa Lotem. I think his entire arms are just absolutely amazing, with the Avak armor and the beefed up shoulders--everything is there is awesome. His thighs are also really nice, and I like the greebling. The only thing I'd want changed is the torso, I like the armor design and I'd like you to keep it, but the actually inner workings look a bit empty. Otherwise, he's most definitely one of my favorites. Can't wait for Sepviren!

Brilliant torso! I love the legs. The upper arms a OK, but the bulk of the armor is a stud off of the actual arm. I think it maight be better if the HF 2.0 bit was replaced with the double Metru socket from Avak, and some greeble held the Piraka foot on by curving around it. I agree, we need more brown MOCs! Well done.

Very nice work, mate! He looks a lot like that pic that you based him off of. It IS rare to see brown MOCs now a days. Hmm, that gives me some ideas. Btw my secret project is being delayed for a bit due to the MIT. Do you have any guesses as to what the secret project is? Just give any guess. Sorry for not writing any long comments for a while, but I've been REALLY busy with school AND the MIT. I have to get my entry up tomorrow too so that's kind of rushed. The reason that it has to be up tomorrow is because I'm going hunting on Friday so that'll be for a whole week. So I'm totally packed with stuff to do. I'm saying "so" a lot aren't I? Well, anyway, I think that you will like my entry. It's pretty awesome. Ok, I'll stop now. Bye! Again, great job!!!!!

needs work, I would recommend ditching the open sockets on the hand connectors on the the arms. Either put a ball joint in there to fill the space, or just remove the hand, the torso needs to be a bit longer also. Not your best MOC. Needs a lot of work.

It's amazingly fun making toa of stone (Did you see my moc Rockal ?) Anyways, if not, doesn't matter. It's soo fun to make guys like this ! I think i'm in love with the rahkshi head above the pohatu claw weapon ! After close study of the pics, i just realized how hard it is to make mocs like this with soo many details !(Except hf upper arms lol, but you hid them well) Hands are genius ! ok well instead of writing you a bible, I'm gonna go by saying 5/5, and truly well executed ! Amazing .

This guy is almost as good as Nuxen I must say. He has a great concept and his build definitely reflects it. He does have some flaws though. Like a lot of your MOC's he has stuff sticking out. It looks all right but at the same time it can cut down on poseability and look silly. And when really thinking about it, if you're in a fight would you want stuff sticking off of your armour and getting in your way? His weapon also feels a bit lacking. He looks like the kind of guy who would use a mighty war hammer, not some sword. Also a small note, Glatorian don't have Heartlights, and they cannot wear kanohi. Not a flaw but just something to mention. Otherwise he looks great.

OOOOooh! Great job Ben! If he could talk, I'm sure he would have a deep,gruff, and jolly voice! You nailed the Blacksmith-y look, and that mask looks good on him. i wonder how Solonus looks mask-less. Anyhoo, I was wondering if you could give me some advise on how to build good upper legs for a MOC of mine. I think that the rest of the (secret) guy is perfect, but his thighs need work. Anything will help. Again, Great job!

Much better! Love the look of the legs. The lower legs have a nice look but I think they could be better. Fantastic upper legs the detailing is fantastic and the greebling is really great. Torso is not bad. The belt is good but I think by using more hinges and creative designs you could get a more rounded tubby look to him. To me the upper torso seems rather hollow. Upper arms are nice. simple but have a great look. I wouldn't change them. The lower arms are incredible. the armouring and detail is great and i love the inika armour. Overall much better than dewan.
