Bionicle MOC - Cassandra by Alex-Darkrai Bionicle MOC - Cassandra by Alex-Darkrai
This MOC has been in progress for about half a year. An on-off work on the rare weekends from university.

I showed WIPs of this to some friends and tried improve the design according to their advice.

Creators Note:
Especially the actual building process gave a me a lot of trouple. I often had to exchange core parts of this MOC for different ones in order to get the desired connection ways to add limbs and armor in the desired way. By now, I can't remember the basic construction of this anymore, it was just a process of adding more and more layers of parts in order to design the anatomy and shapes.
I'm now damn satisfied with the outcome! The 2-shaped spine of her anatomy is pretty cool, in my opinion and I'm very happy with part use. All those different kind of tan colored parts give this MOC the complexity I wanted and the simple color scheme supports that effect even more in my opinion.
I like the arms, they're simple, but I'm sure that some of you won't like them. I'm not sure about them either, but they fit the MOC quite good, in my opinion.



The Creation:
Cassandra is a priestess of the sand tribe and quite skilled in controlling Zesk and Vorox however she wants. Her chants my sound random or imprecise to normal listeners, but they give her the abilities to control the sand around her in large quantities. Moving through sand like swimming through water or moving whole dunes are just examples for her high skills.

This thing looks like an alien from Duke Nukem. I cant name a SINGLE time I could ever use that description for a moc. Awesome. The color scheme fits well and the head was a really nice fit for him. All I dont like consists of the fact that his posability seems limited and his arms look a little dinky. I would add some more armor onto them.

That awkward moment when I find that I already commented on the Duke Nukem reference below O3o

Yeah, I thought the same when I read this second Nuke Dukem comment xD

A lot of people pointed the arms out, but I do like them, more armor would just make them look more bulky, but I wanted them to look more fragile and segmented like an insect.
Meh, maybe I'm gonna rework them a little, I'm gonna have some more time for MOCing coming up and a new background sheet for taking pictures :3

Cassandra is a female name, even in our world xD
But I can understand how you think, I'm not really trying to show any gender specific details here ;)

Why should I?
I mostly build alien MOCs ... and bionicles are robots to begin with. To things that don't need a gender. There's not really any need for a gender when it comes to MOCs, I think.
