Bionicle MOC: Vhisora by 3rdeye88 Bionicle MOC: Vhisora by 3rdeye88
About the MOC
Vhisora is one of my oldest MOCs, and has stayed unchanged for a considerable amount of time. In fact, I believe this MOC has gone the longest without change of all my MOCs. The last time I altered this MOC was in 2007 to give it additional armoring and the Mahri tube that connects its sword to its body. Since them, I haven't changed a thing on it. Now I'm not sure if I should honor that heritage of keeping this design, or update it. I initially had three of this kind of MOC, two combining two of the 6 original elements. Fire/stone, Water/air, Earth/Ice. I dissolved this set, changed the Water/Air into strictly water, and incorporated it into the set that became my anti toa series that I eventually dubbed The Insurgence of Darkness.

Bio
Vhisora is a genderless autonomous cyborg prototype created by Makuta Mutran. It is not a fully thinking or feeling entity though. It was initially designed for submersible combat and surveillance, but could also double as an infantry unit on land. The prototype was never put into full production for the army of the Brotherhood of Makuta because while it is obedient, it didn't interpret Mutran's commands properly. It had a tendency to not take prisoners of any kind. This turned out to be a major problem when he needed to interrogate prisoners or used it to fight other Makuta. Having not been able to write the faulty protocol out of the programing, Mutran put Vhisora into dormancy. It stayed there for many years until Remaku paid Mutran a visit and took it off his hands. Remaku now uses Vhisora when tactless muscle and brute unyielding force is needed. If Vhisora is engaged in combat it won't stop until its target is killed or it is damaged too severely to function. This was another reason Mutran deemed the experiment a failure, it wouldn't take to any self preservation protocol.
"Its like it has a will to kill, and only that. No will to live, no will to survive, just a cold savage desire to destroy."~Mutran explaining Vhisora to Remaku

Alright, I don't see a lot of mocs with no heads, so this is kinda unique in that sense. I do like the shoulder pads, they really stick out and look robotic. I'm not too sure about the fins on the back, they look a little bit out of place, but that's really just me. The legs look kinda tiny compared the very bulky body. I really dig the club, it looks pretty dangerous. I do like tha little details like the yellow bohrok eyes, especially the ones on the side, really adds detail. Now to go over the standard stuff.
========================================
~Vision~
The vision is pretty good, it has some neat details and colors aren't extremely out of place, so they blend well. The bulkiness adds the to lifeless robot feel, especially the headless aspect. Overall, the vision is the highest one here.
========================================
~Originality~
I think the originality is a bit weak here, the mocs colors are a bit fresh, but the character concept isn't really unique or interesting. A lot of lifeless robots float around in the moccing community.
========================================
~Technique~
The technique isn't fancy, but at the same time it isn't bad. The technique and the parts placement works for this moc, so it is a bit higher here. Maybe adding some gears would put a bit of a robot feel there as well.
========================================
~Impact~
Last but not least, the impact. The colors flash pretty good and make this moc stand out. All the little details like the propellers and back fins help keep it's water property in line.

Overall, this is a pretty decent moc, it isn't the best, but it isn't the worst. It's good for what it's meant to be.

This isn't the same as the character Vhisola?

No, but the "Vhis" part of Vhisola's name did influence me naming this Vhisora. Like Vhisola and "Visceral" combined.

It doesn't have one. It more or less has a "face" on its body.
