ChineseLegolas is back with yet another nifty creation for us to behold. Made from over 600 pieces and twenty hours of long, hard work, Caine: 76 is the culmination of years working with constraction and system pieces, and a fitting finale for the very impressive career of this clever MOCist. That’s not to say we won’t see the odd MOC pop up on occasion, but it would seem as though the days of MOC blogs are behind him.
Caine: 76 is a war automaton, a robotic imitation of a Toa designed for combat. The MOC exemplifies the character, looking terrifically robotic and yet still carrying itself like a Toa. Its whole build exudes the calm, collected feeling one would expect from an automaton, though it still looks ready to tear through anything that gets in his way. An interesting mix of system and constraction parts, Caine has a very interesting texture and look to it that sets it apart from most other MOCs.
Perhaps the most exciting and eye-catching feature of this already exciting and eye-catching creation is the working shotgun. Yes, you read that correctly. Working shotgun. It can be loaded, fired, and even open up to fix jams. Not only that, but it looks remarkably good for being functional, a trait which usually hits pretty heavily on the aesthetics of any LEGO creation. But ChineseLegolas has made it work, and definitely deserves cookies.
While it’s quite a saddening thought that we won’t be seeing much more from ChineseLegolas in the way of MOCs, at least he’s left us with this little gem for us to feast our eyes upon. May he succeed wonderfully in all future ventures (especially if they’ll lead him back to his BIONICLE pieces).
