Bionicle MOC: Snip by 3rdeye88 Bionicle MOC: Snip by 3rdeye88
About The MOCA MOC of this nature from me has been loooong over due. I've been needing to make a "MIni-MOC" in the true sense of Mini-MOCs for a while now, I never really had one till now.
I feel a little bad ending up with a crab as a mini-MOC seeing as how its been done before, namely by :iconwelcometothedarksyde: But I was inspired by his crab to do this. I was trying to make a little spider, but once I got those claws made I simply had to honor the design and make a crab. So now we have "Snip," my little green crab. :D

Bio
He's just a cute little crab, He could be HF Bionicle or what ever. No real story behind this one. =P His name is snip because his claws are more scissor like than clamp like for a crab's claws.

to me there is one word that complacently sums up this moc and that is cute.
Vision:
there are a lot of types of crab mocs but yours has to be the most inspirational and i believe the worker view was what you were aiming at.
Originality:
i have never seen this type of mocing before and the old brezz mask works well but a more shell like mask would look better this is because of the masks eyebrow give it a plane like design.

Impact:the cuteness of this moc is incredible.
i need eight more words so "completely cute".
What do you think?

His story has kind of developed from Grayskayl's story.

Thank you. The Small MOCs have a certain charm to them. There's a simplistic innovation in them a lot of times, and not just from me I've seen a lot of really good Mini-MOCs from other MOCers. welcometothedarksyde has several to. :)

That Breez shell is really clever, but why is there a silver tooth on one of his feet?

Thanks Vap. I commented. If you hate me forever for being so demanding I understand. Really Sad

Again thanks Buddy. :XD: Because I didn't have six lime ones at the time. I've since fixed that. At the time I just told myself a little story of how he got hurt and its a prosthetic. :giggle: But now they're all the proper color.

:lol: Chopping off a poor little crab's foot for a potion while its still alive, yeah that seems like something Bionicle MOCkery Matteo would do. :XD: BM Matteo is a total asshole.

You did a great job making every part matter in a compact space. The little guy's so cute, and there's no extemporaneous pieces or underdeveloped areas. I especially like the color scheme and the use of the mask as a shell.

Omg, the claws on this are so clever. I love the usage of the robot hands to hold in the pincers.

Thanks Chris. :D Those exo-force/bionicle arms are so useful. Most of us bioMOCers use em as fingers, and they were used that way on some sets to. I just kinda stumbled on the pincers though.

I kind of want to hug it..
It's cute. Colors work out well, claws look about right from most angles, and the Breez helmet as the shell works out pretty well. Something about its sleek and curved design.

Again.. I wanna hug it. :D

I know right? He's so adorable. Well I'll give him a hug just for you. :)
Thank you. I'm glad you think so. The only thing about the shell/mask is the eyes. I thinking they need to be filled in some how. It shouldn't be too difficult to do, just need to tinker with it and do it.

:lol: I'd like to see Snip try and pull that off. I don't think that'd go over well with some of the bigger MOCs. They'd probably just step on him and turn him into a stain on their shoe. :lol:

:lol: Well if snip is trying to take over, yeah. Otherwise why would he bother? He's an evil bastard, but not pointlessly so. If he doesn't kill out of sick twisted pleasure, no that'd be O-jin and to a lesser degree, Remaku. Vhisora doesn't stop until what it's after has been killed or its been ordered to stop, and even then that's kinda iffy.
