About this creation


Event - Bio-Revamp Cup
Round - 2
Nemesis - Toa Infernum
Category - Makuta

































































































A psychopathic scientist that toys around and makes new monstrosities and the little assistant that helps him do it. Of course I'd wanna revamp them.
This revamp of Mutran was, at-first, going to be an average sized moc with general details. Then I started thinking about how much better I could do him if I took on the fashion in which I made Nuhvok. So I went for the larger scale and I personally think it paid off. With the bigger size I could do the chest area the way I wanted to which would seem oversized on a normal moc. This way I can use the larger, horn-type pieces to make the ribs and still keep the chest ball in there. The head is fully custom apart from the mask so that's another win for me. I managed to also use those widened 3-bar pieces which I use here for his fingers. The slight bulk around getting them connected isn't as recognisable on this larger scale.
The meaning behind revamping Vican is just like why I did Nuhvok-Va. Just so I could have an addition to Mutran and seeming as he came in the same set and is completely affiliated with him, why not really. He's not as good I feel as a smaller moc unlike Nuhvok-Va which came out better in comparison as having a smaller 'side-kick' to a larger character. I'm still pleased with him as an added piece though.
Overal another successful revamp I feel.

I love this moc good job Fenrek but one small nitpick try a custom head on Vican. The gray one wrecks the color sceme

There is so much to love about this! The use of the Nuva shoulder pieces, the slickness of build, the fact that you revamped BOTH Mutran and Vican, the rib-cage (this is more or less what got you over the line). You have captured the bulky, evil feel while maintaining a streamlined look and incorporating all the key aspects of the set. I have to hand this round to you sir! (Though it was very close!)

This was such an epic set and this has made that epic set even better! Lovely work on pretty much perfecting this set! Awesome stuff :D

WOW! Great job on the revamp, they both look great!!! When I look at Mutran... I can't help but feel that he's transformed from a Makuta Phantoka... into an angel of Darkness. Amazing job!!! ^.^

Very nice! You portrayed Mutran very well with the bulky, yet spindly, feel. Does the Tridax pod actually work though? For Vican though, I would bring the wings closer to the body and use the smaller, smoother tires instead. Good luck!
