Arphax - the Hero
"It's time t' see th' light."
About this creation

Name: Arphax
Gender: Male
Species: Toa
Race: Fa-Matoran
Tools: Magnetic Cannon
Titles: The Hero
Element: Magnetism
Occupation: Superhero Toa
Kanohi: Matatu
Personality: Generally easy-going and friendly. However, he is prepared to immediately drop whatever he is doing when necessary.
Status: Alive


Like many Matoran, Arphax was involved in the creation of the Mata Nui Robot. Because of his hard-working manner, he was allowed to retire to Artakha, where he began to learn the art of music. However, at some point in his life, Arphax was given a Toa Stone on the orders of Artakha himself, who understood that the Matoran of Magnetism had a different destiny.
During the war against the League of Six Kingdoms, Arphax was dispatched from Artakha to assist the Toa in the war. While fighting in the war, Arphax discovered that the world outside his home island was filled with crime and corruption. After the war, Arphax settled in Metru Nui, where he began a one-man war against the criminal underworld.


Well, I'm not dead. Of course, most of you already knew that. I just haven't posted a MOC in forever. Reason being, after my last three MOCs got quite less likes than I usually got on my MOCs, I got sorta depressed and started cutting back on the number of MOCs that I post here. Don't worry, I've still been MOCing.
Arphax's concept is relatively new, by my standards -- he originated back in January. (Cross reference Khaati, the last MOC I posted, whose character concept was made in July of last year.) I had recently heard about a kidnapping that had occurred close to where I lived. While thinking about that, the character of Arphax emerged in my mind -- a warrior with a one-man mission to wipe out crime.

The initial character design was a lot like Stringer 1.0 -- he had the same accent (which, in the story, he still does), a similar gun, the same head , and the same element (Sonics). However, over time, I worked to distance my character from stringer -- giving him a Matatu, transferring his element to Magnetism, and at the last minute changing his weapon design.
One thing that stayed on him was his red and white armor colors. My reason for those colors is so that he can instantly be recognized as a "good guy". That doesn't help much for stealth, but it would help to scare criminals as well, with a reputation as good as his.

Also, Arphax always fires first, and fires hard, so there's not much chance for his enemies to counterattack anyway. :P

Now, closeups from weird angles to show the internal structure, like always.

The lower legs. Didn't use the Inika shoulders on these.

The upper legs. Sorty empty looking from this angle, but it looks nice from the front. (And I guess I should mention here that his legs have a tendency to fall apart at the knees. Maybe I'll work that into the story.)

Back, minus the HF shield.

Lower arms, minus the Glatorian ankle armor. Most of you now that I'm not very good at custom lower arm, but on this one I can say that I think I did a pretty good job.


Thanks fer lookin' and goodb--

.....I regret that I have but one life to lose for my Hero Factory.


~blows~

Well, that was unexpected. Anyway, before you leave to rate and comment (I should hope), here's an image of the MOCs that I've made since my last post (as well as the last three BIO-MOCs I posted on the pages).

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 I'm slightly baffled, actually. It's great. Brilliant use of the Furno XL masks as shoulders. But. . . I see that the head is a brain attack head. Yet it also has a Matatu and a trans-blue visor? is the mask either stick by a half-axle or does something else hold it in? Regardless, great concept and MOC.
Actually, it connects to the Mask, and a half-width beam connects what is left of the mask's axle to another axle connected to the Brain Attack head. Custom heads can be complicated like that. Thanks man.

Quoting [ Chro ] Colors scream Su over Fa, though.
Meh. I might not have made this clear yet, but his armor isn't in his natural colors -- it's supposed to be altered to fit his role as a superhero. Element doesn't make much of a difference on him anyways.
Quoting TGYK Stormjay: Uh, well, where'd ya get it?
Firstly, you only have to add a "like" on the first comment you post on a page -- otherwise it's spam. Secondly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo7mDXP478s

I actually quite like the bulk here- it befits the character. Color scheme looks good, and the torso is nice. Good job Stormy.

That's quite the hunk ya got there. o.O My first impression of the shoulders was that they were a little too broad, but oddly enough, I got used to them, lol. So, I'm gonna complain about them. Unconventional is my middle name, so I love the use of all of that armor. he definitely has that epic sci-fi feel going on there.

Thanks all. :)
Quoting That Guy You Know Can I use the music?
Well why not? I didn't make the music anyway.
Quoting Kai (Josh) Very muscular looking :P
Stems from my excuse to use Rahkshi thighs as shoulders. :P
Quoting Chalk33 I love the color scheme :P.
Dat nonstandard color scheme tho. :P
Quoting Hazeroth Nice job! I like the idea of the story, and the good photos are very good. I like how you made the legs this time. It doesn't look very awkward. The torso is very nice too. I like the flow. I'm not a big fan of the ackar foot guard on the lower arm. But I can deal with it. And lol! Zonk hero! I'm jelly of the furnos you have! But I think you just got another favorite builder!
Heh. The legs use roughly the same frame as most of my other MOCs. The Ackar shinguards were used mainly because my Mata Red armor pieces are few and far between (mostly Hero Factory armor, and I don't want to overuse that.) I bought the second Furno XL for the cape, mainly, but I thought since I had to Furno helmets I might as well use them. And thanks for the fave. :)

Cool hero, kind of reminds me of the Punisher with his one man (er...mech) mission to fight evil. Love the POV shot when he's taking out the Hero Factory guy, by the way.
