Makuta Daitein . Makuta Daitien is my biggest and most favorite of my MOCs (at the moment) in the main photo he is standing at about 80cm tall, with his legs outstretched though he stands over 3ft.

Some people may remember my Makuta design proto-type, I put it on ages ago to get advice on looks and structure, heres a list of the people who commented and helped:

Thanks to all the above for rating and commenting on my proto type.
(Above: Head) Ok now we come to the MOC, Makuta Daitein is the ruler of the planet Dimress were there is no great spirits or toa only him and his many armys of Orshiek and other hideous beasts. There are of course some rebels that stand up to him occasionally but... well there isn't many rebels for a reason.
(Above: Side view) The bulk of rebels are made up of Lord Shaterii and his armys, but what is his motive? Well Shaterii used to be a commander of a small portion of the Makuta's armys. Lord Shaterii felt he deserved a larger portion and a higher rank for his many years of service, but of course the Makuta declined, and well one thing led to another and eventually Lord Shaterii became the leader of the largest rebellion group on Dimress.
(Above: Back view) Lets do a bit on Makuta Daitein's past shall we? This certain Makuta originated on the island mata-nui (of course he wasn't this big back than!) on mata-nui he slowly grew more and more powerful, but always stayed unseen. For a long time the only ones that knew of his existence was the great spirits, but when Daitein thought he had enough power he unleashed a devastating attack on the po-matoran's village. It was that one attack that made the great spirits decide that Makuta Daitein was to dangerous to be on mata-nui, so he was banished to the planet Dimress. He is now a prisoner of his own realm.
(Above: Close up of body)The planet Dimress is one of few distant planets that the great spirits send unwanted or dangerous creatures. It is these banished creatures and beings that Makuta Daitein's armys are made up of.
(Above: Leg close up) Enough of origins and back story, now for info on the actual MOC. I have been busy these holidays and have only been able to work on this every now and again, I have completely destroyed and rebuilt the torso and hips 6 times now searching for a strong build, eventually I settled on a couple of those big pieces that you find in vehicles (you know what I mean don't you? If not I will explain more in a comment) the legs stayed pretty much the same as the proto-type, the only things really changed are the hips and feet.
(Above: Arm close up) His arms haven't changed to much, I just cleaned them up a bit and added armour/weapons.
(Above/all of below: Fun shots) This is Makuta holding Ackar by his feet about to strike with his left hand. "Ackar: Let me down! Let me down! (I'm getting to old for this!)" "Makuta: Next time you'll think twice before spying on me!"
(Above) "Makuta: Yuk! I stepped in something!"
(Above) "Ackar: Oh, my back!"
(Above) "Berix: I swear I didn't steal anything!"
(Above) And the last photo, this shows Makuta in a pose with Ackar and Berix hanging in the background. I deliberately did this to show my MOC compared to a glatorian and agori (Size).
I hope you enjoyed my MOC. Please rate and comment!
