Judgement Of Emotions: The Guardian.
Trial 4 - Bravery
About this creation
Bravery is what makes the strongest sword or the toughest shield, not power.


Enter: TORIID, THE GUARDIAN OF BRAVERY.

Name: Toriid.
Species: End Knight.
Titles: Watchman Knight, Bravery Guardian.
Status: Alive.
Assigned Universe: Unknown.
Principal Emotion: Bravery.
Sacred Object: Eternal Torch (symbol of Permanence)
Theme Song: Resolute Bravery.
MOC Status: Assembled.









Yeah, I know I said 'next week', but seriously: Sunday, Monday... It really matters? So, here you have the Guardian of Bravery, Toriid!



Feet and legs. We are going to be honest, ok? They... are awful. Simple, and even thin, for that 'massive' body. But I don't have enough parts of these colors. If I get more, I will upgrade him, until then...



Upper legs and waist. One of my favourite parts of this MOC is his skirt, inspired on the ones of Celtic and Roman warriors.



Torso. Custom, it uses a lot of technic parts and greebles (I'm not very sure of understand this word correctly, may someone explain its meaning to me?). With suspenders. And a heartlight. Yes, time to say: HEARTLIGHTS FTW!!!



Head. My favourite part. I tried to quit the Green Lantern logo, but I didn't succeed, as you can see. I don't know why, but the new HF chestplates use a different paint, that can be esay erased with nail polish remover (seriously, it works great!). But these ones, no... As a trivia, Toriid is the only End Knight that use a different faceplate.



Right arm. Again, the lack of parts made me to build him with different armor on each arm, although the structure is the same.



Here you can see how I connect the Joker's chestplate. And how I fill the gap using that LEGO part.



Left arm. With a Dragon Shield. I think that it gives him an even more warlike look.



Arms structure.



Here is the waist without skirt.



His... butt. Without skirt.



Now let's see all his back. You can see how I built the head, and the thing I most hate from Toriid: the back of his legs. I need to cover that, but I don't know how to do it with my current parts...



And now, as every time, here you have some poses!



Crossing his arms. I love this picture. <3



Flexing his muscles! Hayaaaaaaaaaaa!!!



Kick! Finally, a decent one.



A random pose. I like it, but I dont know how to call it xD



A problem with the poseability: Toriid can't sit. Only can do it on a Japanese style.



Another picture I like.



And the last action picture, the 'must' on every End Knight: walking towards the camera!



Now, Toriid shows you his Object: the Eternal Torch. It's so big that I couldn't made a better picture without going out the background xD



The Eternal Torch.



The principal part. That Green Lantern part isn't very useful, due to its unique color...



A better picture wielding the Torch.



It even has a regulator for the flame! =D However it can't be extinguished.



It's hard to made photos of Toriid with the torch...



Holding it. Toriid use to appear on three poses: crossing his arms, holding the torch like a Royal Guard, and with this one.



I love this picture too! <3



A picture with the others End Knights.



'Another one. How many will we be?'
'Hmm... He doesn't look bad ;D'
'ANOTHER ONE TALLER THAN ME! I'M JUST TIRED OF THIS!'



Comparative with an Inika build... Sorry, with Toa Lianyu (he doesn't seem very happy to be shown again as a comparative xD)



Final pic.




Toriid was the last End Knight I built. Well, it would be better to say that was the last End Knight I finished, because I built his head and his torso after finish Riega. So, he was the fourth End Knight I started to build. I'm not very happy with how it turned, however this is due to the lack of parts. If I had more Mata Green, I would have made it better.
You may be wondering: if he hasn't got enough Mata green parts, why he build Toriid with that color? Well, it's because I have an idea of made an End Kinight of Bravery, using that color scheme. And I'm very obstinate for things like this.
Also, I don't know why, but Toriid seems to be an Irishman to me. Don't ask, it's my mind, it's crazy. By the way, his name came from the Japanese word (Tobira), that means 'Door'. This is due I always think about this MOC in front of a giant light door, as a guard.

Well, I wish that, even Toriid can be better, you like it. Thanks for the comments and rates! ^^




EDIT:



Another one! Guys, you don't even know how happy I am when I see my creations on the frontpage <3






















NEXT WEEK: TRIAL OF MELANCHOLY! ARE YOU READY TO DEAL WITH IT?

Nice work on him, I like the color sheme and the detailing! The legs are a bit thin, but when you want to go for the roman/keltic look, they work pretty well. Overall great creation!

Quoting Jacob Manahan Do the lower legs need work? Yes. But you've already stated that, so I won't start badgering you about it, other then that issue though, he's great! The torso seemed to come out really nice, and the roman/celtic skirt looks awesome! I think you did really well =) (p.s. you do know that 'everyone's lego creations' is picked at a random right?)
Yes, that's why I'm so happy when I see one of my MOCs on it, I usually have very bad luck xD Thanks for the comments, again! ^^

Nice work here, he looks a little cluttered, but it's not very major. You definitely captured the whole "guardian" look. I can definitely picture him standing in front of something and not moving XD

Thanks for your comments people! ^^ I understand I always write a lot, sorry about that. I know that lower legs should be better, however I don't have enough parts for improve it. If I get more I will upgrade them.

Nice, the lower legs could be beefed up a little bit.
