The Model IV OCTANCORP Killbot is equipped with a state-of-the-art Emotion Processing Unit for 241% more murder capacity compared to the previous model. However, this now means it is capable of developing a personal identity, which may or may not incorporate a gender.

If your Model IV OCTANCORP Killbot develops a gender, they should be treated with respect and kindness. After all, OCTANCORP deprecated the laws of robotics years ago, so even a Model IV OCTANCORP Killbot's owner is not truly safe from its wrath.

Just a little experimental build to flex my MOC muscles. I picked up my first Ninjago set in ages yesterday 'cause I liked the main build, and was inspired by the weird, very-specialised spinjitzu spinner piece, so everything else got built around that. Even the most idiosyncratic piece is still compatible with the system these days.

It was nice and sunny, so I couldn't resist taking the photos outside. ^u^

All the photos I uploaded are embedded in this post, but if you want to see them in the source resolution my Flickr album is right here. Thanks for lookin'!

Even if the MOC was inspired by the spinner, I think the car hood stands out most to me. Very seamless execution all around!

The spinner piece will forever look like a skirt to me now...

Such a simple build, but absolutely amazing! :thumbup: :laugh:

Thank you a lot! :D When I started playing around with the spinner, I was looking around for parts to complete the form in my head - the little blue car on my desk was the perfect complement to round her off (literally). Perhaps it'd be more accurate to say this is an exploration of unsystematic parts within the system, something I definitely want to continue with given how rewarding making her was...

Gosh, it's a good sign that my build was strong enough to alter what you thought of the part. ^u^;; the kind words are absolutely appreciated!

Amazing! Really expressive, and very clever part use throughout!

aaaaaaa thank you!! ^u^ Seeing PAIGE in your signature reminds me that she might have been a subconscious influence, given I've seen your posts around in quite a few places in my few months on this site so far.

It's nowhere near her scale or realism, and the spinjitzu part necessitated a clothed figure, but both are an attempt to capture a feminine form in bricks - so you liking my build feels extra special as a result c:

Wow this is an amazing MOC, I love her face build, though is it fragile? where did you get the chest piece.

Also that Ninjago tornado piece comes in many colors, it's cool that it's able to be incorporate d into builds like this

Thank you!

The face build is not fragile - the plates all work together quite nicely. There are two weak single-stud connections in the wider build, but they're a necessity of using the spinner piece - there's only two studs inside it at the base, and they require the insertion of two seperate parts with a gap between them - so the legs are connected via stacked single-stud round plates and cylinders.

The chest piece comes from the LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog pack's miniature car build!

It would make a fun series of characters all wearing pretty dresses, but I have no further intention of picking up other Ninjago stuff this wave. If others wanted to experiment, though, it might be nice! :D

Oh okay, is that a legal build?

Ah thanks for the clarification, I really wanted to know :)

Lol, my brother has already used the spinner piece as a dress in one of his MOCs before you...

Probably not. And I got 70673 Shuricopter.

That's cool! Has he shown it off anywhere? It'd be nice to see different approaches to the same basic concept c:

That's pretty cool. I like the use of the car hood piece. Isn't it from there Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog fun pack? That's at least where I got mine. The colors blend extremely well together as well. Love it! :thumbup:

That was a clever idea to use that piece as a dress. The moc looks great. I have been looking at those Ninjago parts and trying to think of something to do with them. If I ever need a dress for an moc I must give this a try.
