Bionicle MOC - Grind Star by Alex-Darkrai Bionicle MOC - Grind Star by Alex-Darkrai
I have gotten used to it now. My pace with uploading MOCs is probably gonna stay like this. I'll hardly be able to get any faster while studying. But hey; I'm still on it!

The Creation/Creators Notes:
This was a long journey. I already had finished torso and head more than a year ago, but I took them apart again, because they were too much out of concept. After doing some different thing I started completely anew a few months ago and completed the new head and partly the torso and legs right away! It was great, because I finally found the right concept for him.

Firstly, I wanted to create a MOC purely for the battle.
In battle; there are characters and monsters.
Characters have reasons for fighting, skills which they have polished in order to put them to use and certain weeknesses which come along with their strenghs.
Monsters have near to never any reason, often only instincts, their skills are often meant purely for killing and have developed along with their body for their whole life, which essentially links their fightings skills and their body for their whole life. Or put it differently; characters can put down their weapons and forget about their self-thought skills and live a peaceful life afterwards, monsters can't do that most of the times, they're bound to live as a killer.
(That's just a diffinition I made for the origin of my MOC, don't take it as my opinion towards any related topic.)
Zero Star now has a special kind of choice, which he got through his transformation skills.
He can have a body which is purely made for fighting without having any regards of not being able go back to a normal existence. So he combined the deadliest skills and body characteristics he had absorbed so far, in order to reach this form.

Secondly, I myself wanted to combine characterstics of a few of my favorite sci-fi characters/monsters into this MOC! A little bit of the proportions of Samus Battle suit and a few features of the Predator and the Alien.
I was also slightly reminded of Scizor while completing the MOC.

I hope the pictures are okay to look at! I tried to get as much out of the black sections as I could, so you can differentiate the parts, but I wasn't as successful as I hoped.

I love the insectoid face and legs! They remind me of a fly and a grasshopper, respectively.

Gorgeous as always. The calves, shins and feet are my favourite parts, but I also love the general posture and shape of the moc. I could say a lot more...
Awesome job, looking forward to seeing the final in this series!
