So I'm not dead yet.
About this creation
So, I suppose some apologies are in order. I certainly disappeared for a while. Those of you who have a DeviantART have probably seen me lurking about there, but from here I've been gone a while. Heck, I'm pretty sure it's almost my second year on MOCpages XD Yeah, yeah it is. Wow. Well, I can't guarantee I'll be around much on here, as I'm starting to prefer the DA system, (minus the utter lack of multiple picture uploads...), plus it works much more often for me, but I'll pop in every once in a while.

I've not been that terribly busy MOCwise in my absence either. My job and life otherwise seem to have taken all the MOCing time I had out from under me. this winter though I'll have more time. I'll try to update more then.




Anyway. Onward to the MOC!


The shadow of the deep. That's what they call it. It lives far into the sea, deep below where anything else of such size should be able to live, where the pressure is tremendous and the light is nonexistent. It feeds off of everything it can. Simple minded creatures are often tricked into coming towards its bio-luminescent bulbs on it's tentacles and legs. When the prey comes near, it spears it wit it's bone spikes on it's tentacles or strangles them. No one is sure where it came from, or what it is, but they know one thing for certain.

Don't go into the light.



On to photos!

Apologies for the terrible pictures. Not the best day to take them.

























Creator's Comments: This MOC was probably the one that took me the longest that I've made in the past year or so. It took me all told about 5 hours spread over a week or so. Considering some of my other, more favorite MOCs of mine took only an hour or so, I'd say I'm definitely off my game. This MOC also presented a bit of a challenge otherwise because...















It's an inika base.

So yes, this is my entry to the Piece Out's Contest.







Another view without the tentacles on him.



And my normal closing photo.




CCs: I will admit, despite the time put in, building this guy was terribly fun. I tore him down and fiddled with ideas for quite a while. I debating putting in more color, or adding silver armor but decided against all of those. This guy was made possible mostly through a new shipment of pieces I got recently, of which I am VERY pleased with. Got several things I hadn't had before, (like the mask, whip, and blue pieces in here.), and even a few pieces I didn't know existed. I also decided something else while building this guy that I think y'all might actually care about.

I'm going to start my own little project.

I'm not sure if anyone remembers my MOC Kabooro, and I question whether anyone noticed the similarities in these guys, but that was on purpose. I've decided that I want to make a "team" of MOCs like these two. There will be six of them as far as I've planned thus far, and one in each of the basic Metru colors. I plan on throwing in some other colors with them, but no more than one of the Mertu colors on each. I also want them all to have the flipped mask thing these two have had. The bios will be relatively alike, short, sweet, and basically saying that they are mysterious hunters or whatever. Nobody reads those anyway, so I'll just keep them short.
I already have the red one mostly built, I want to change a few things and fix it up in others but it's basically done.

I don't know, I think it'll be fun and something of a challenge.



That's all I have for ya today. Carry on.

If you would have seen the look on my face when I saw the simple skeleton for this moc ! Was NOT expecting that ! :O First off, I gotta say I really like all the little white highlights and the Takadox blue parts, but I do think it would be cool with a tiny bit more white through out the moc such as in the legs and the body. Not gonna lie, the "tusks", the mask choice, and the roundness to the body remind me of an elephant... I CAN'T HELP IT ! :P Overal, I really love this moc as it is creative and well built. My only gripe are the lower legs, the piece choice and the armor is very poor compared to the rest of the moc.

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) Kabooro has his toes and Pjarov has his tentacles... will the others have their own unique distiguishing feature? I'll be looking for them. Glad to have you back. I was on a little trip during your homecoming so, that is why I'm commenting a bit late. :)
I was definitely planning on it. I want them all to have their own special something. Hoping I can actually do justice to my idea in the end. Thanks Topsy :)

Quoting Kali C. Nicely done! Love the tentacles coming out of his back. Where did you get the silver tentacle for his weapon?
I have no idea where the silver tentacle came from set-wise, I merely got it in a recent haul I bought.
Quoting The Texan Bionicle Builder Could you check out my moc please? Thanks http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/373755
I am really tempted to just say no, as I do not like solicitors :P I will check it out, but in the future, please don't ask me to. Thank you :)

Quoting L.A. Miranda TRAITOR! I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN THIS MOC-BLOCK WITH US! e__e Haha, now seriously, glad to see a new MOC from you. LOVE when people builds things using Inika torsos for their original purpose. And even more when they do it without making the MOC looking a regular Inika-style set. My favourite part is the torso, the Rahkshi head and the shoulders really surprised me, covering the most identificative parts (for me) of the Inika structure: shoulders and crotch. Face looks great too, even if it's a regular design the addition of the jaw is a nice touch. The only thing I don't like is the tentacles... Well, actually, is the fact that he has both tentacles and whip. I think it would be better if he only have one of the two things. But that's a detail xD Great work, dear! <3
I AM IN THE MOC-BLOCK WITH YOU, THIS TOOK FOREVER COMPARATIVELY XD I'm glad you like him. I agree though, the whip was overkill. I wanted him to have a weapon though, and that was the only one that made sense for his character DX

Quoting Coconut Fanatic Mmm-hmmm, Me Gusta. Great Moc here Gale, he looks excellent. The overall armoring is very sound, that torso armor is beautifully done, especially considering you used an Inika Torso in the Strakk position. The addition of the tentacle arms is great too, and the use of the Metru head with those teeth is splendiforous. The lower legs are the downside of the Moc, they look hodge-podge and strewn together. Sorry, but that's what it looks like to me.
Agreed with your point about the lower legs. They looked much better in real life than in the photos. Oh well. Thanks Terilis :)

Quoting Ventum (Mittens) Nice moc Gale. I'll be sure to show the other 2 judges the entry. Also--- Toa Infernum November 8, 2013 Sweet. Very Nocturn-esk. I'm like it! You should be more active-er on the MOCpages though. :( --- I hate to burst your bubble, but DeviantArt and Flickr are SO much better than MocPages. If I were you, I'd move there. But hey, that's my opinion.
Quoting Glorified Pessimist Took me forever for my entry too. Well done. As I said on DA, I needed to hear those words.
Quoting Garrett A. (Birthday) Awesome work Gale, can't believe that's an Inika frame :).
Thanks guys :)

Thanks Infy. And I don't know about that honestly. I really like DA's system better, and MOCpages doesn't work for me a lot. I'll try to be more active than I've been in the future, but I really have no guarantees for that.
