Bionicle MOC - Mad Crow - Flying! by Alex-Darkrai Bionicle MOC - Mad Crow - Flying! by Alex-Darkrai
It took me a damn load of time to get the wings like this.
It was difficult to get the moveable joint section of the wings small enough, so they look good when the wings a fold and when they're spread.
Here you can see the sitting crow!

This is a pretty cool MOC, simple yet amazing. However, because of those 4 eyes ( I assume are eyes ), it reminds me a lot of either those small, demonic 4 eyed crows from ,,Teen Titans" that Cyborg and Beast Boy encountered in Raven's mind, or the Winged Beast from the movie ,,9". Still, it's a very good MOC. Well done.

No problem.
And even do they look similar, this is still a neat MOC.

The effort paid off- in flight and not, the Crow looks great.
I like that Skrall armor for the tail, it fits right in.

May I make a poster for this guy?

I was thinking that there could be several of them in it with some flying and a few one the ground. [Would you like some of them chomping on people? If so than could I use humans? If I can't use humans though you'd need to post pics somewhere of several dead bionicle people, and I could take it from there.

Are these big compared to a matoran or toa?

Taking those dead bodys aside, a nice idea ^^
Making it look creepy like a bunch of them sitting on trees in the background or flying through sky could give a nice atmosphere. :)

K, lol. I have one last idea to get across.

I was considering having a dark park like area with black or shady trees, with a crimson sky to give it a surreal like feel to it.

If you have any final suggestions please let me know.

Very cool Little MOC Alex. I really like it. The thing is though...it looks like a pterodactyl, not a crow. Then you and Aiden had the conversation about the eyes. Other than those two important things, I really like the integration of all the various parts. :D

It's an exaggerated version of a crow, so I'm fine with what you're seeing it xD
And you are right, there are similarities ^^

The head is kinda vague as a "beak" but its mostly the wings. They're actually from the dinosaur sets, so that's the main contributing factor.

That's the reason why I layered them, to get another silhouette.
Normal feathered wings aren't really available as part.
The head isn't intended to resemble a 'real' crow anyways, it's stylized xP

I understand all that. It is stylize, but its also vague. So it looks like any beaked animal. And you're right, Lego surprisingly has never done anything feather like. Hmmmm maybe we should tell them to make a bird like villain for HF. :P

I think the new Ninjago sets had something feather like :shrug:
The ones for 2013

I dunno. I don't pay close attention to the ninjago sets. They're cool and have a lot of small parts I'd like to have, but I won't be getting any any time soon.

By using them like this, I wanted them to look like feathered wings :)

Very nice! I would think tht the Whenua head would stad out a little too much, but it looks good.

I almost feel like using something in a repetitive way, because I used a hordika head as back on Golem as well ^^;

Nice job, Alex! I particularly like how you integrated the Whenua mask into its back.
May I ask what the red discs are near the head? At first I thought they were eyes, but then there'd be four...

It's intended to be a scary crow xD
So yeah eyes ^^
Four eyes! :fear:

Maybe too much of a joke? ^^;

I'm with Aiden on this one, the four makes it very confusing. I didn't understand what was going on either.

The head was inspired by these lovely two creatures:

And by these two for the shape:

This makes it my second partly soul eater inspired MOC xD
