Here is my entry to this year's Self MOC-off Tournament(SMOT)! The theme is to make an opposite of your Self-MOC! Do join, The more the merrier! Sorry for the bad photos, but enjoy!
About this creation
Species: Matoran (Le-Matoran)
Titles: Wind among Flames, Boss
Mask: Kanohi Lempe, mask of adaptation
Weapons: Wrist Blades, Knee Blades, Katar-Rifle, Wrist-Mounted Crossbow, SP-E (Speed Strength Enhancers)
Argin was your average Le-Matoran Chute Worker in Metru-Nui. However, one day, the Makuta were testing some experimental shadow leeches that could turn matoran directly into makuta. So, by random, they kidnapped him. A makuta scientist injected him with shadow leeches, and turned him into a makuta. He quickly moved up in the ranks, and became one of the best warriors. He was once sent to kill a toa of stone with a Kualsi, and as he was battling, the toa accidentally activated his mask and teleported the two to Ghetta-Nui. His Lempe changed his armour and weapons for a more urban and stealthy setting, noticeably changing his Wind Katar into a Katar-Rifle, powered by a N.EN.N. class BatBox. He was instantly assaulted by gang members of the notorious Dark Flame, and he effeciently knocked out all the grunts. A security camera caught the previous events, which was noticed by the Dark Flame's leader, Callan. He was negotiated with, and consequently hired for a hefty fee. Besides basic weapon upgrades which his mask is not capable of, the Dark Flame's engineers installed some SP-Es into his body, which greatly amplifies his speed and strength, powered by a captured Toa of lightning. One toa giving a constant stream is enough to amplify his speed and strength about three times, giving him a massive advantage over virtually any opponent. He, like many other gang members, are currently attempting to kill Solunus, the only thing remaining between the Dark Flame and conquest of Ghetta-Nui.
A: Erm...Hello, I guess.
A: What do you say? I look like a certain Red and Black warrior from a distant planet? Can't say I know him, no.
Back Shot. Yes, my usual boring commentary.
Pointing his crossbow at you. He wants your money. Not sure if this is the electrically charged one, so you might want to be careful.
Phos Facepalm! (Is that still 'in'?)
Ok, now to show off some weapons.
A: My crossbow!
Wrist blades that flip open. Happens to look like wings for some reason, too.
A: I stole it, ok? Happy?
A: Knee Blades!
A: My pride and joy, my Katar-Rifle. Shoot...
A: And Chop!
A: A N.EN.N. class BatBox! (Kudos if you find this funny) (Do I get bonus points for NPU? Judges?)
A: And this here on my wrist is a standard issue Dark Flame communicator. Of course, I customised it with a EMP Blaster.
A: So, I'll let my creator keep calm and carry on!
Did you just make a reference?
Leg armouring, and more SP-E Crystals.
My left leg (no, your right), complete with SP-E Crystals.
His Back, with only a COUPLE Sp-E Crystals.
His left arm with crossbow and, you guessed it, SP-E Crystals.
Left arm. More SP-E Crystals. Yes, I do believe the Dark Flame have a mine specifically for these. I mean, how else would you get this many?
Once again, the inside
Comparison with Senith, one of my few MOCs who are missing no pieces after building this Argin.
And yes, Rekulace had to get in another pic. This one does not involve him getting hurt, surprisingly.
Chima Raven Thingy-ma-bob: Give me back my wings!
A: What, these things on my crossbow?
Chima Raven Thingy-ma-bob: Yes! And you shall give it to me now!
Chima Raven Thingy-ma-bob: Yep, it's electrically charged! Give him your money kids! *Bzzzz*
A: So rate, comment, and listen to what that stranger just said, or die.
So, yeah. I actually competed in a competition. Yep, everyone get a heart atttack. Anyway, he was rather fun to build, and I tried to copy the basic framework, while making some major aesthetic differences. Now, some comparison:
Location teleported to: F(Fire argin)-Dusty Wasteland, A(Air Argin)-Urban Metropolis
Weapons: F- Meelee, A- Ranged (mainly) (Range, toa of awesome, is Awesome!)
Color: F- Red, A- Green
New Job: F- Glatorian (Rather noble), A- Crime Lord (Not noble, Captain Obvious)
Fighting Style: F- Hit Hard up close, A- Hit quick from a distance
So ya, good job if you read all that and understood it. Anyway, now I need to stay the stuff that prevents me from getting sued: Ghetta-Nui was made by Cody G., and if you do not like me using it Cody, just tell me and I'll remove it. Cody G. also made Solunus and the Dark Flame. callan, while only briefly mentioned, is the Self-MOC of Callan, Lord of Fire. K? Now, please comment, rate, and that other thing that Argin said.
