A one man, one eyed fighter from the Cyclopian Monocracy
About this creation

Though technically they have eight eyes, seven on their head and their ‘belly-eye’ the first humans to see them described the new alien race as being ‘cyclops’ and this name has stuck, mainly due to the Cyclopians own pleasure in the name.


As their first ambassador to the Terran system put it: “We are a species of singular vision; there is no compromise, no bending of our will, and no changing of our precepts. To do so just wouldn’t be us, so we bear your Earth language name with pride.”


Of course this singular vision and lack of compromise means they often end up in conflict with each other and other species. The Cyrana fighter (named for a species of fish on their home world of Monoth) is an effective, maneuverable and well armed craft that holds up well against most comparable craft.


It is said that the Ooze Queen of Monoth has one in her personal garage, but it has also been said “She is too fat and covered in stinking crusted ooze to fit in an Octan Space Tanker.” Though that’s why the Cyclopians went to war with the Squidites, so let’s not spread that around too much.


Dissention and defection from the Monocrasy of the Ooze Queen has increased in recent decades and many otherwise law-abiding Cyclopians have been drawn into criminal gangs in an attempt to find security from punishment death gangs loyal to the Queen.


The Space Police have expressed concern to Terran Gov over these acts of violence and protests have been made to the Cyclopian ambassador, as is to be expected no change to Cyclopian policy has been made.











An experiment with Hero Factory parts.
Built August 2012.

Wow, cool, the HF parts add a cool "greebly" touch to the design. Great job! :-)) It would be cool if they let you use HF parts this way for an official set...

Again we not just get an intriguing creation, but also an interesting back story. The front part's layered design is excellent.

Very nice Matrix-like insectoidic shape combined with stylish colours. They could use it in Hollywood:-)

Really beautiful, I love the angles you've managed to create with the HF parts. You've inspired me to try something similar!

Quoting Caleb Perkins Nice starfighter! Question: How do you take pictures of your fighter? I've got a lightbox, but I've always had trouble taking pictures of my starfighter's underside and other angles. Do you use a stand or something?
Good question. I use the photo studio at work with a diffused flash gun set up - though I sometimes use well lit plain white paper background at home and get very similar results. I have a clear perspex stand that I balance (or blue-tack) the model on, you can see part of it on the third picture above (where it distorts the light on the back rear engine) I then use photoshop to remove where it is visible in most shots. Clear perspex rods can be bought at many hardware and craft shops, then cut it to length and drill a hole into a clear perspex base for one end and glue a 2x2 plate to the other to attach models to, if you want a jaunty angle for display use a ball joint and socket on the 2x2 plate! (I'll try to remember to take a photo of my stand next time I photograph.

That "cyclops" head is one of my favorite minifigure parts! I use it all the time to make alien jailbreakers. You put it to good use! Keep on building! --Jesus saves, God bless <><

Seamless integration of system and Hero Factory. I often wonder why there isn't an official theme mixing sytem and Bionicle/HF elements (except in some minor detail now and then).

Wow this looks incrediable @ the guy below me:wowwowo, hero factory not bionicle.

I love this organic and somehow evil look. This makes me think about using more Bionicle parts myself. Fantastic work!

Incredible! I'm not the biggest fan of HF but these parts you used has turned this creation beyond ordinary. It's so well smoothed out, it's as if it's made with far less parts than it really is.

This is a very cool looking craft, but it almost doesn't look like Lego anymore! Perhaps I'm just not familiar enough with the Hero Factory / Bionicle parts...

Jeez, that looks so cool! It's hard to get a good realistic-yet-fantasy look like that. You nailed it, as always.

Allways like to see the tech-system-bio parts mixed together in a way that looks like they belong together.

That is one aggressive looking fighter. I like the encoporation of some rarely used bicks as well as the unusual shape. The over all effect makes it look functional and very dangerous.

Still dumbfounded that this is actually LEGO, but I guess that is because of my lack of knowledge of Bio/HF parts.

Really cool. It makes me want to see what I can do with Hero Factory pieces. Except there is one problem with that... I don't have any. Time to go to the LEGO Store and get some MOC Fodder with money I don't have. :D

In viewing the thumb, the build had a familiarity about it. I'm starting to recognize your style. What a style too with the added plus now of npu! :)

Excellent use of Bionical parts. They are so awkward due to their limited connection points, but you have embedded them in a shape that capitalizes on the very trait. I really like how all those odd cup shaped parts seem to crimp down around the canopy. It leads back to that massive thrust nozzle in the real very naturally. I have to admit, most of the projecting components (the weapons and the big lose hoses for example) seem to detract from the compact feeling of the main fuselage. It seems like two design philosophies in the same ship. But that canopy arrangement really carries it through. Attack!

Hands down, best hybrid of bricks and technic I've seen in a long time.
