This is an Infestor from the game Starcraft 2. It was commissioned by Nannan: [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nannanz/]
I made it in 2 colors because I prefer brown while Nannan preferred black. From the pictures, I think I like the black more now.
While building this I realized that building with Bionicle is getting harder and harder as the supply of Bionicle online has decreased significantly. My old style of building will soon die out. The newer style isn't nearly as fun.
These are the Wip Pics. I tried Bionicle first but it didn't come out the way I wanted it to.
Hi, Mike. It's me, again, and I was wondering- Wait, are those Rahkshi heads I see near the abdomen? OMG they are! Anyway, I was wondering if you could join the Imagination Paradise group. I gave you an invitation, and I pray that you would accept it. I'm feeling lonely in this group. In Imagination Paradise, your creativity has no limits.
OMGOMGOMG I can't wait to see it. Actually, I can, but- you understand. Btw Mike, can you please visit this page: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/349733? It's my very first Wyvern. Please tell me what you think. It's not as cool as yours, but I think it's pretty cool.
How do you even find the right pieces to work with? I've been trying to get a mech design going for weeks but could never get it right because I felt like I didn't have the right pieces or not enough of it (I was also in college, so most of my time was spent doing projects)
I know what you mean. I feel that the limiting pieces of hero factory don't give us enough flexibility while building as bionicle did. It may be more kid friendly, but it is harder to make mocs with them. I hope they get if in their heads that they aren't being as thoughtful as they used to be. They didn't even finish the Bionicle series like they originally planned. They don't even think of how good the pieces are, they just worry about getting the next series out... I kind of went on a ramble there.
On and on, goes the brilliance =) Mike, you continually DEFINE for me what Shape-sculpting means. My hat's off to you, M8. I will imitate, but never replicate. Keep these amazing works of art coming! Thanks for the inspirational skill, Sah. Cheers!
I understand your complaint! Bionicle pieces are getting constantly rarer. I will hate to see your style go out because quite frankly you were doing something than no one else ever came close to. These are quite good. I haven't played the game but I like the design. Herofactory pieces are useless in my opinion. They are overly simplified, and they don't seem to work well with more advanced building styles.
