SMT Round 1 vs. CallanLoF: Aurum Inferno!
Hello once again everyone! This is my entry for the Self-MOCoff Tournament, Round One! I'm facing Callan Lord of Fire, so you know I've got a challenge. But I hope to give him one myself! >:) I'm curiously lacking in red misprint Noble Kanohi Ruru, hence the use of Lhikan's Hau, which is similar enough for my tastes. Anyway, enjoy the MOC! :D
About this creation
Link to SMT
Callan's awesome version of Pirai.

Name: Callan
Gender: Male
Species: Matoran
Race: Ta-Toa
Element: Fire
Titles: Lord of Fire, Toa, Crash-Crazy-Callan, Aurum Inferno
Kanohi: Kakama, Mask of Speed
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Story: After finding out his past and helping the OoMN stop the evil Magmagear, Callan, his brother Davix, Cossy, Kreezon, and Korr began a quest to find the three remaining Toa Stones from Callan and Davix's late mentor, Helad. One Toa Stone was taken by the Toa (creating Toa Jojo) and one by the Rogue (and given to TSO). Finally both groups met in battle to access the third Toa Stone. As soon as Callan grabbed the Stone, he was attacked by Veneno. The Stone shattered, releasing its Toa energy, killing the Dark Hunter and transforming Callan to his current state, but knocking him unconscious. In the ensuing confusion, Davix was captured by the Rogue. Callan and the others believed him to be dead, and Callan added orange to his armor in remembrance of his fallen brother.
(Please note that this is not CallanLoF's actual storyline, I just added onto the brief story snippet he had given.)

Also see Callan's page here.


And here he is! :D
I was going for the bulky but not overmuscled look the original Callan has. I guess I sorta got that, especially with the legs.


Isn't he awesome? Since the category is greebles, I built him in about two hours, then spent a few days on the greebling.


I also made his Fire Sword, or my version anyway.


Arm, well armored, but only mediocre greebling, if you ask me. :/


Back view. I focused a lot of the greebling here. :D


Shoulder. The Kalmah armor shell is hinged, for more posability. Also, more greebles!


Upper back. Lotsa' greebles here too.


Ah, greebles! :D


Torso closeup. I don't have a single gold Hau but I still wanted to give him symmetrical, round, gold shoulder armor (wow, specific). But somewhere in the design it ended up on his chest.


Legs. The concentration of the greebles and design effort went into these.
You can also see his holstered dagger.


Another view of the legs. :)


Side of the lower leg. The lower leg design is based off of Veazey's, so credit goes to Ben V.


Pose with dagger.


Fire Sword closeup. I tried to use both blades to make the gold blade look like it was on fire. You like it? :D


Face and chest. Yeah, there's a heartlight, and I used the same piece for the chestplate that is used on the actual Callan.


Back of the head. Guess what? Gear greebles! :D


Face minus mask. Modified version of my typical custom head.


Pose. :D


Another pose.

So, that's it for now!
Good luck to everyone in the SMT!
Next MOCs: Makuta Kevemros and Dreikell, Pirai updates, more Chibirahkshi
Bye for now!

Quoting Clever Crowe D'oh! Missed this one. Mah bad. LOVE the way the forward-turned masks really rounde out his shoulder bulk. Really strong look; wish it didn't leave the back so exposed, but hey - I think a killer anterior look is worth it. Cheers!
Thanks Crowe. Man, this is an old one indeed. XD

Thanks for the feed back!! I did add white eyes, it's just that you can't really see them in the picture. add well defined muscles, hmmm..... I don't really know how to do that, remember steve just said it had to be BASED off of a character, not be exactly like it. No offense, but I wasn't really planning on changing anything, since the deadline is so close, it's just that I wanted to give you a preview since you guessed him first, that and your one of my best friends on mocpages. Anyway, I'll try to integrate the muscles into the legs, and thanks again for the feed back!!

Allright Omega, since you were the first one to guess to who Callan is, I'm letting you get a special sneak peek of what is to come, EVERYONE ELSE PLEASE DON'T LOOK!! http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/85084/1329710664m_DISPLAY.jpg Tell me what you like and don't like about him!!

Quoting Steve The Squid
Thank you very much, Steve. :) I had a few rants in the SMT group, but I've calmed down. XD
Quoting the above page I built him in about two hours, then spent a few days on the greebling.
Didn't take me too long. ;)

Aw man, I'm peeved you lost! I even pitted you against callan (in a re-matchup after you got a weaker opponent) because I thought the challenge would be good for you and you'd be able to overcome it, which I thought you did easily until the other judges voted. I wonder a bit if it was his reputation as well (I know, don't hate) or even the want to see better creations in the future. But he won fair. I vote for you because of you amazing focus on the topic, greebling like no other mocist I've ever see before. You even managed to greeble with large parts, like those shoes! I can see so much time went into this, and I'm very sorry you lost this round, and so early too.

Now you get a proper rating. This is really a fantastic creation, I really see how much work you put into him. The body, legs and arms.. all are so fantastically greebled and have so many nice part usages. The feet on his hands add a even more string look, and the sword is so greatly done. I really couldn't decide between you and Callan, but I think, the arms who are too low let me vote for your opponent. But don't give up! Keep this creation and maybe just improve the arms! I see now what an excellent MoCcist you are, and you really deserved it to be one of my favourite builder's.

Quoting Vored 03 I wish I could have voted for you both, but that wasn't possible. I'm sorry, but I rated for your opponent. This creation is fantastic, tough. You'll get a proper rating later on.
Quoting Super Pikmin Great entry. The body is good, and the sword. But I vote for your opponent.
Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ 3/5 Good entry, but my vote went to your opponent.
Ah, too bad. :( Thank guys.

Thank you! I would have added back armor but I didn't have any more gold, and it didn't look right when I used dark red or orange. I decided to leave it as is because I also wanted to show off his greebles. :D

What?! I thought I commented already! Anyway, incredible job, Chronos! An interesting take, and quite a bulky form of me! Definitely works with the category. Unfortunately, I've been a bit slow with Pirai, so he'll probably be out on the day of the deadline. Good luck to you, and may the best man win! :D

Geez. This is FANTASTIC! It is perhaps the most interesting take on Callan that I've had the pleasure of seeing. The design here is simply amazing and the greebles make for a good, clean finish. The masks of time look great. I've always liked that mask (its my self mocs mask) and the lhikan maks was an interesting choice but it definatly payed off. Overall, great job. Callan is in for quite the ride.

Quoting Steve The Squid So much for not being good at greebling! All the greebling looks great! Callan's got a good run for his money. Is it really a misprint mask, or is it just rare?
The red Ruru is rare because it is a misprint. There are under thirty original ones in existence, as far as I know.
