Taking the Featured Creation spot for the first time since March of 2017, our senior Bureaucrat BobTheDoctor27 returns with his popular creation Tourik, Toa of Plant Life.
Now this MOC is no newcomer to the wiki, dating back all the way to January of 2012, six years ago. Of course, in that time, he has changed and grown, evolving from a regular Inika build to a unique character, utilizing a custom torso and an incredibly satisfying color scheme.
As you would expect, Tourik sports a classic blue and green color pallet, due to his nature as a Toa of Plant Life. Now, out of all the figures I’ve seen with this kind of design, this probably has got to be the most fluid color schemes to ever be depicted on a Toa of this kind.
I touched upon the torso and I should dive deeper into that a bit more. This build is somewhat a standardized creation Bob has come up with in the past few years, appearing on many of his MOCs, but that does not degrade its value. It is a very unique, combining both TECHNIC and System components, which blend together nearly flawlessly.
Onto the arms, while they aren’t the most complex creations, they are certainly not to be overlooked. Bob has taken both TECHNIC and CCBS and created unique designs, which stand out. The hands also feature poseable fingers, a regular in the Doctor’s creations. The legs are also simple yet effective, which use dark blue Rahkshi heads as shin armor, something you don’t see every day.
So, all in all, Tourik, completed by both his Kanohi Elda and brown bo staff, is a fine MOC and worthy and praise and applause, and definitely worthy to be this month’s featured creation.
