ZORK (Version 8.5)
Once again, my great mighty Self-MOC got updated! However, the update this time is far more obvious than the changes from 8.0 to 8.4, so I decided to create a new entry for him.
About this creation
For those who don't know, you can find all of ZORKs past versions here.

Remember what I said about the shoulders of my Furno-MOC? In case you have guessed that the white ones I ordered were for ZORK... well, you're right. And before you ask: Yes, I got the inspiration for the shoulder design from a certain animated series about robots who are more than meets the eye.


In fact, the addition of shoulder armour is the only improvement since Version 8.4.
"But only because I don't need any other improvements, am I clear?!"
Okay, just kidding. I'd be tempted to improve a few minor things with ZORK, mostly his upper body (I'd love to improve the poseability of his shoulders and maybe giving him waist articulation - all that without totally changing his current proportions) and the stability of his joints (you know, that axe is very heavy, and TLG recently released those little grey stabilizer joints which were used for Black Phantom's arms...), but to do so I still need pieces which TLG don't provide yet (like limb pieces with the same kind of rubber in them or a new torso armour).


Thanks to the flexible design of the shoulders, ZORK can swing his axe like he always does.


I attached the shoulder armour itself...

...in a rather simple way. However, it took me much more time to update ZORK as you might expect because I tried various other designs out before I came up with that one. I changed the greeble underneath his torso armour multiple times because I couldn't decide which would be the best position for the shoulders. In the end, I realized that this black little L-shaped piece could solve all my problems. Oh well, sometimes my creativity stands itself in the way.


Thanks to the poseability of his shoulders, neither his arms nor his wings are hindered, yay!

And now, it's time for even more Transformers Prime references!

Yes, I recreated the group picture of team Prime with my MOCs. But I made two versions of this picture.


Version 1, with Kinia


Version 2, with Breez

Which version do you like more?

Either way, the Five-Man Band we see here is patterned this way:
ZORK as the leader/hero, Ulran as his lancer, Cossy is the big guy, Cheesy is the smart guy (and perhaps also the Bumblebee of the team) and Kinia/Breez is the heart/chick of the team.

So, I hope you like ZORKs newest incarnation. Comments and such would be much appreciated (especially if you already gave version 8.4 a high rating).


While my current MOC projects are still WIP, I might feel nostalgic these days and upload a few of my really old MOCs. See you soon guys, and always keep in mind:

"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."

Them's some beefy fists. Very nice build there. I also like all the wings and such on the back. Plus, its also fun to attach the weapon to the back. Overall, a very good looking build; great job!

That's a very cool Self-MOC. I like the colours and the bulk, and that hand design is very clever.

Sorry, for never answering. I've got no more inspiration left. For the record, I'm not going to post anything new. I'm just here so people can see my re-post of Cheesy Q.

I know when I asked if I built Zork, you said not to include him in any stories, but If I could put him in my story, I have a great (and important) role for him.

The breez picture is the better one, but I think that it should be Leviathan.
