Bionicle MOC: Wretched Stare And His Computer Desk by 3rdeye88 Bionicle MOC: Wretched Stare And His Computer Desk by 3rdeye88
Update(3/18-14)
I present to you WRETCHED-STARE AND HIS COMPUTER DESK 2.0! :la: This update is for both Wretched himself, the computers, and the desk. Everything about the previous form of all these things had some attention paid to them. The only things to remain the same are his little desk fan, and the action figure collection(not much I could do about those really) There are also a few notable additions to Wretched's Arsenal of PC Gaming and Hacking nirvana.

Added features:
  • Head set.
    Wretched-Bones(AKA Greg) once told me that he practically lives in his headphones, so comfortable ones are needed for him. This inspired me to include a head set for Wretched.

  • Coffee Mug(more like oil drum ) Complete with coffee in it. It spilled when he freaked out about his desk top crashing.   Coffeecup 

  • Dual Mini-Fridges.
    This was a feature I wanted to add to the first iteration of Wretched's actual desk
    (not counting that puny thing I made for him at first). Inside the top fridge are some energy drinks. These are the canisters that used to be on Wretched's belt, which I did away with because it felt more in the way than useful now that he's got a Mini Fridge and new weapons. The bottom fridge has some kind of "Xtreme" snacks. :shrug: Yay using printed tiles. :dummy:

  • Printer.
    Pretty much any PC user needs a printer at some point for something. So I felt his desk wouldn't be complete without one. I wasn't just content with a printer, that would have been to simple for Wretched. Everything he owns is upper class high tech. So he needed at least a printer/scanner. Considering how big this desk is, I'm surprised at the fact this is the most SNOTy part of the build. It was a bit of a technical challenge getting something that looked right, didn't look too blocky or bulky, but also worked. Sadly, paper could go through it but only if its 2 studs wide, though it looks as though it should handle 4 studs wide. Oh well still looks awesome in my opinion.

  • Desk Drawer.
    Something I first did on Matteo's Desk Lego System MOC: Matteo's Desk by 3rdeye88, but expanded upon with Wretched.'s. Now he has a place to keep his rocket Launcher. :giggle:

  • Dual Wielded "Data Blades."
    I decided that butter knife I gave Wretched before wasn't acceptable now that he's getting all these badass upgrades. So I sought out to find him a new weapon. I was initially going to go with a Hack Hammer, but this just kinda worked out for the better. Greg while a really great tech dude who knows his stuff about computers, also studied martial arts when he was younger
    , so he's told me his preferences for weapons are axes, hammers and daggers. Well these are too big to be daggers so they're data blades. It was daggers that inspired me to try something and the skrall blades just happened to really fit his look I think. Plus getting the color scheme in the weapons was pretty cool toMore on these in his Bio
Upgrades.

  • Desk.
    Its kinda obvious that the desk itself is actually different. The middle section with the grated plates are from the original desk though. I thought those looked cool so I kept them.

  • Chair.
    The chair is somewhat the same as before. It was always a bit too tall for wretched so I shortened it by one round 2x2 Trans-neon-Green brick. I added some 1X2 tiles to give it some color. Then I redid the bottom rollers to be actual wheels that spin, not just black Beveled gears. It rolls a lot smoother now. You should see Wretched going WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE around my kitchen table, its quite funny. :lol:

  • PC tower.
    With the new desk being bigger and taller that allowed for more room to have a bigger PC tower, so now its bigger and has two Disc Drives in it, how fancy. :D:D:D

  • Monitors.
    Its pretty much the same exact design as before just tripled. What serious gamer doesn't have at least a gagillion monitors? Greg does. My Office 2014 by Wretched-Bones

  • Keyboard.
    Moved some things around to try and make it look like it'd be back lit.

  • Mouse.
    It has a mouse pad now, nothing special, just something to add a little more color to the desk.

  • Speakers
    Mostly the same but now they're mounted on the shelf

  • Laptop.
    I reworked the Laptop on both sides. Its now running Windows8, and like any sane being with half a brain...Wretched hates it. :XD: This was actually Greg's idea. When I told him I didn't like the way I did the computer screen using printed tiles, he suggested the basic colored square thing. Which was genius(Go Greg) 

Bio(updated)
Wretched Stare is a member of the Skakdi race. Wretched is perhaps one of the tamer of the Skakdi, but that's not saying much. He can still be characterized as "quite prickly." Wretched spends 90% of his time in doors at his computers and other technological devices. Even amongst the Skakdi he's a bit of an oddball. He plays games and sits in a dark room in front of screens instead of fighting and doing the many various malicious things Skakdi are know to do. Because of this his fellow skakdi think him odd. Once Wretched is in "manual butt kick mode" as he calls it he can be competent fighter, though he's not the most strong or fastest. Outside of battle he can be a bit of a bumbling goof.

Wretched-Stare utilizes his vast knowledge of technology to aid him in fighting. This can be seen mostly through his use of hi "Data Blades." These unique weapons have an energized core that can transmit bits of code into a being to disrupt it mentally and physically. The code can overload and kill weaker beings or simply paralyze stronger beings. Zakaz, the island the Skakdi live on is pretty barren with many fortresses dotting the landscape. Wretched holds up in a smaller fortress of his own employing small drones to keep a look out and fend off any intruders. When those don't work, he'll refer to his "manual butt kick mode," meaning he has to get off his butt and go take care of the problem himself. Being a Skakdi, Wretched has worked for the Dark Hunters. He joined the Dark Hunters to gain access to high grade equipment and technology since Zakaz had little to nothing to offer him.

Being skilled at identifying talent and potential, the dark hunters didn't really utilize his ability as a fighter, but exploited his wealth of knowledge with computers to help many of the other mechanically or technological savvy members develop new weapons for the Dark Hunters. Though he would never hand over the schematics for his Data Blades. This lead to some growing tension between him and some of the other Dark Hunters and a fight broke out amongst them. Many of the experiments they were working on were destroyed and Wretched ended up killing several of the participants. None of the other developers questioned his authority after that and he became the leader of the R&D department within the Dark Hunter's Guild.

Update(2/2/13)Wretched has a new setupLego System MOC: Wretched Stare's Desk by 3rdeye88
Wretched Stare is a guest MOC for my friend :iconwretched-bones: AKA Greg He was formerly known as Wretched Stare which I thought was a cooler name, but not as cool as Knight-Terror which was his old name. However, I felt Wretched Stare fits for the name of a MOC best out of all three.

About The MOC
I made this MOC in dedication to Greg because he's such a cool guy. He's made numerous art pieces as well as all the icons I use. So I felt he was deserving of a guest/self MOC that wasn't lame like my first attempt Bionicle MOC: Wretched-stare 1 by 3rdeye88 So technically this would be Wretched Stare Proper and the first one would be a prototype I guess. Last time Greg had me go in the direction of a Hellghast, but this time didn't give me any creative direction, "I would rather if you did it be 100% from your creativeness.
I would love to see what you come up with. :) " Well Greg, this is what I came up with. If you were a bionicle you'd be a multi-computer-using badass Skakdi(though not with reidak's face).


Bio
Wretched is a Skadi Mercenary for the Brotherhood of Makuta. He tries to move up in the ranks but for as much as he tries to pass himself off as a super tough guy, he's really kinda a goof. He's better suited at working magic on his laptops instead of fighting, so other Brotherhood members, Makuta or even Toa don't really take him seriously.
WS is equipped with an energy blade sword, gauntlet blaster shield which can double as knuckle dusters Energy stick(which he noms) and two canisters of a delicious beverage of his choice. He's also got some nifty office furnature. :D


Creating the MOC
This thing was kinda a pain in the ass. There was a lot of back and forth with it, meaning that I'd build it up, then tear it down and redo parts. I actually had finished legs on him and then said "nah this doesn't work" and changed them and the hip to allow for better movement. As I was building him I was thinking of this being my truly official Self MOC, but I knew I needed to make something for Greg. I was thinking I could call him "Wretched Eye" and he be both our self MOCs, but that idea just seemed lame the more I thought about it. So screw it, this is Wretched Stare, and Matteo is my official self MOC. WS is one of the "items" on my list of MOCs I'd like to make. This accomplishes the "build a MOC in my favorite color scheme" objective. :iconsuccessplz: Greg has made several art renders in this scheme, like DotzDotz by Wretched-Bones which I used for the background, as well as his own ID's so he must like it to. :D

Once I knew this was going to be Greg's MOC for sure I knew it needed something he couldn't go without, at least two laptop computers. Seriously, the guy is a tech junkie and has a bunch of cool machines. I shoulda also made a small little smart phone or something, wouldn't have been that hard to do I guess. Oh well. After I made the laptops I realized while taking pictures that he'd need somewhere to sit and use at least one of them, then that's when the idea hit me. BIONICLE OFFICE FURNITURE! :la: I particularly like the chair. I think this is something I'm gonna have to explore further. :iconponderplz:

I'm not entirely sure if I'm gonna keep this MOC together. I really like it and am happy with it, but it sucked up a lot of parts from Mechus and I don't know if I wanna free em back up or leave him as a permaMOC and just use what ever's left. So I'll go ahead and turn critiques on on this one. :) I won't even say "hope you like it Greg" cause I know you will. I'm pretty damned happy with it. I'm a little jelly its not actually my self MOC. :lol:

3rdeye88 has created a moc that is not only epic but just outright fricking hilarious as well!

With a color scheme that is way out there, this moc really pulls it off in both a frightening yet comical way. Not only that, but the desk just one ups the funny factor making it that much more laughable.

The armoring of the character is very well executed in both design and complexity. My only slight issue with the technique executed in this moc is with the green toa nuva chest armor pieces used for the upper back leg armor. My problem is not with the color, its with the shape of the armor pieces. Maybe trying something differently shaped or more custom might make it look better.

Other than that This moc is perfect in my opinion.

Well here we are agian witha nother brilliant looking moc from 3rdeye88.

The first thing to note on this moc is the obviouse colour which is very striking at afirst but on further inspection is revealed to be well executed and brilliantly pulled off. Having such bright and 'daring' colours together can sometimes have disastrous and other-wise ghastly consequences but here this is not a problem. The black base and outer armour works seemlessly with the more abundant green and just tipped of with a few purple highlights. A great choice of colours executed in a stunning fashion.

The build is quite good here too. Non conventional limbs are constructed to great effect and shows creative usage of pieces available. The Skrall masks work great as thigh and uper leg armouring but I miust protest on the use of Nuva chest plates as upper back-leg armour. The colour does work well but as the wider chest area points to the top of the thigh on the Nuva piece, it exagerates the upper legs a bit too much in my opinion as spaces them farther from the body.
The overal chunky and heavily built statature works brilliantly for this moc and this creation being a Skakdi only reinforces the cause of a large and more 'brutish' looking build.

The bio for this guy is comical and really adds character to him. Having such a powerful and notary, war-like race of the Skakdi having a 'nerd' unit really contrasts to great effect.
The furniture and various small accesories really add to the character and are cleverly constructed themselves.

Overal another fab moc from 3rdeye88 and a triumph for colour schemes. Congratulations on another ace piece ;)

Can I have that desk?

But I'm disappointed. You didn't have him put his coffee cup in the CD-rom player.... sigh

Well...no, Because 1, I need it for Wretched, not unless you want to pay me so I can make a BL order to make him an even cooler desk, and 2, it'd be too small for you to use anyways. You'd like quite silly sitting there at a tiny little desk trying to use a plastic computer made from Lego Gale.

:lmao: You mean his nine gallon coffee drum and the built in cup holder? :XD:

:lol: Really? Its all made from lego. I used various types of Lego parts to build a computer, desk and all the things that go with it to be compatible with the character.

Impressive build, furniture is hard to take on for Bio-folk, having to build it proportionately at such a larger scale. The desk itself is great, I love all the features and all that beautiful shaping. Wretched himself is cool too, but I really don't like the hips, the disconnection of the Skrall mask and the waist really irritates me. Sorry, but it does.

Windows 8... *shiver*.

Thanks Spence. I honestly don't find it that hard though. It just means I have more room to work in. The only hard part was finding all the bricks to make the sides of the desk. For someone who has all their lego sorted, that would have been easy.

I agree that they don't visually look as good, but if there was no spacing there, he wouldn't be able to move his legs out at all and he'd be very limited in posing and mobility, even more so than he is now. Gotta have room to move when the parts are rigid and don't give or adjust.

:shivering: v2 Shiver Oh Noes! :projectilevomit:

Okey, first of all, sorry about not saying too much of the MOC or the other ones you posted, those weeks are being horrible with all the work... I just wanted to say  I'm amazed with that desk. The CPU! The fridges! The printer! The drawers! THE CHAIR! I want one of those computer desks  so hard. <3

Amazing work, my dear! <3

:lol: I think we all want this computer desk that was kinda the point of it to sort of be a dream desk but also something practical. Thanks Lianyu, I'm glad you like and want it. :XD:

And its okay about the commenting. People get busy, I understand. :)
