It has been too long since I've submitted my last MOC ... Studying takes up most of my time. I had two weeks of freedom now and this is what I came up with. Normally, I should have continued with the Kalmah colored Star, but I wanted to use my prototype trans-red hordika arm/lower section
which I got from bricklink some time ago. Creator Note:
Since getting the trans-red Hordika limbs
, I wanted to use them for a color scheme with trans-red as one of the main colors. As the color scheme may suggest, I took apart both The Nameless Stranger
, my first and only Daily Deviation, and my Mad Crow
. The Nameless Stranger, because I wanted to build a better MOC with the black/flat dark gold color scheme than him. He may be my most popular creation, but at this point just not well build enough to be kept.
The Mad Crow was more of a just-for-fun creation, but wasn't as well received as I hoped, so I thought I could use its parts for a better creation.
What can I say about the building process? Before starting him, I watched a Let's Play of the whole game Deadly Premonition
, the most amazing trash game I've ever seen! In case you like weird and psychotic horror stories and don't think too much of perfect graphics and game design, then get yourself this game! And while building this, I watched as many horror movies as I could find on TV, which were surprisingly quite a lot. That should sum up the inspiration I got xD
I'm not all that sure if I had a female or a male body in mind while building this ... my goal is an alien-like MOC which is basically a machine, so why should I care about defining a gender?
Here a few firsts:
-> first time using a trans color as main color in a color scheme
-> first time using the witch doctor joint technique on a finished MOC (on the feet)
-> first time using rubber band to stabilize a connection (the ball joints of the prototype parts are too small, so I needed the rubber to make the hands movable, but not loose)
-> first time using a battle droid arm to place an armor part without any other connection method (find the place I did that and get a Llama)The Creation:
Absorbing the Nameless Stranger
, was a bad idea of Zero Star
. Gaining his abilities was a tempting thought, but who could have known it would result in the splitting of his body.
The forces of chaos within the body of the Nameless Stranger brought forth this being out of Zero Star: Nova the living nightmare
Nova is the opposite of Zero Star. As Zero Star is able to absorb other beings, Nova is able to place parts of itself within others, creating madness and psychotic personalities within its victims. This also allows it to track its victims down wherever they are. But compared to Zero Star, Nova is not able transform into anything or vanish into the shadow, Nova is bound to its body and stays alive as long as Zero Star is alive as well.
