About The MOC
Here's yet another MOC I did in about a day. This time is a Fusion MOC, using System parts and technic/bionicle. Woohoo. I Technic
ally only have one other Fusion MOC, the Reta-Sarka-V12
I've accomplished a few things I've always wanted to do with this MOC, and they are:
- Build a very lanky "standard size" style MOC, but simply elongate and exaggerate the proportions. I was thinking of doing this by making my own version of Treebeard or a generic Ent From Lord Of the Rings. But I got to that item on the checklist with "Nales" here.
- Make a Scarecrow. I didn't really have any distinction as to whether it'd be a benevolent scare crow, or an evil one like what's more popular nowadays. This one is the first.
- Use brown and Tan parts as the main color scheme. I tried to do this on Atlas to a small extent, but didn't really fully incorporate the color Tan.
- Build a fusion MOC figure. As stated, I had done a fusion MOC once before, but not a figure.
I guess in a somewhat subconscious manner, this MOC had been given a fair amount of thought before building it.
One giant icon cookie to anyone who can figure out which part I used as the basis for his body. I'll give you a hint, it is indeed a system part, its tan, and you can make out the angle of it on either side of his torso.
Its a pretty unusual part to.
The printed piece on his chest is supposed to represent a glowing from inside his chest.
Also, I'm aware of his Sheppard's stick being flimsy and bent slightly. Its made of axels being held together by the tubes and connected with axle connectors. Interesting piece of trivia is that Hyde's(Or Autumnales') head is more or less what I wanted to change Matteo's head to, to make it more proportionate to his body without his mask or hat. I would have substituted some of the colors to fit his color scheme, leaving just the face in tan.Bio
Hyde, as he's most commonly known by is a spirit created by a goddess of harmony. His age is unknown, but its suspected that it predates recorded history. Those who have lived longer than a lifetime know his true name though, Autumnales, the harvest spirit.
"Autumnales" is Latin(or some variation of the word according to google translate) for Autumn(like that's not obvious). He is referred to as Hyde for his mischievous nature of playing hide and seek with those he befriends and hiding things from them. "Nales" as Matteo refers to him seldom regularly appears to an individual from the mortal world, but there are a few exceptions, Matteo being one of them due to Matteo's immortal nature.
Hyde is a deceptively Dim creature, he doesn't speak, and only makes a high pitched "Oooooo" sound to convey feelings, if he speaks at all. Usually his is completely mute. He is normally seen standing in the field or crops of farmers around the Autumn months. Whether he is standing in a farmer's field on a sunny, overcast or rainy day is a sign of whether or not next year's harvest will go well or not. This has lead to Hyde being a misunderstood and feared spirit. He isn't hostile in most any situations with mortals, they usually aren't close enough to attack. In the event he comes across a more powerful mortal(one possessing magac or other abilities) that is aggressive he is typically passive aggressive, or simply defensive, and responds by fleeing. But this is a different case with other spirits or entities. If a village is abusing the land he protects he will make more frequent visit, plague the farmer or village with slight misfortune and his own trickery until the abuse is ended. If the village does not comply he will beckon malevolent spirits to the village or farmer's land. By the same Token, if a village or farm has his blessing he will ward away evil spirits. This is typically what requires him to be aggressive towards other non-mortals. Most wise enough apparitions don't argue with Autumnnales, for they know he's not to be trifled with,
Other than beckoning or warding away spirits Hyde doesn't concern himself with the affairs of spirits, and accept for maintaining order in his lands, doesn't bother with those of mortals either. He mostly keeps to himself, except for occasionally visiting the few immortals he's befriended. MOCs featured in this Deviation CogSir Richard AlastairDottore Matteo
