Master Of Grievance(75112 General Grievous Mod) by Mana-Ramp-Matoran Master Of Grievance(75112 General Grievous Mod) by Mana-Ramp-Matoran
About The MOC
This is a set modification based on 75112 General Grievous. I really liked this set. I think its possibly the best set done in the CCBS system and would be a great entry for someone who's never built a "Constraction" figure like Bionicle, Hero Factory, or the various buildable figures from other themes. General Grievous provides just enough complexity to be interesting to a CCBS builder, but isn't too complicated and overly messy looking like Witch Doctor was.

Anywho, I bought the set for its tan, which is a pretty limited color in CCBS and even in older constraction sets, but I didn't necessarily need the parts that make up Grievous' skeleton so I decided a rearmored version could be done with what ever armor I had lying around. Well I have a ton of gunmetal so that's where it went. I'm really not satisfied with that head though, it doesn't convey the menacing look of even the original skeletal looking General Grievous, let alone a armored up even scarier one. Oh well this was just a small little pet project just for fun and I wanted to keep things relatively CCBS oriented

Oh sweet.  I like how he's inspired by General Grievous.

Thanks. Well technically that is General Grievous. That's the Buildable figure set of him, but I stripped off all the tan armoring and modded the skeleton with armor I had lying around.

His new bulk makes the lightsabers seem too small.

I know right? I noticed that to. Hmmm I thought about giving him non-lightsaber weapons but that didn't seem right either.

A) Wow, the first you say you'll build something now that you have cleaned the office... xDD
B) There is a small spelling error in the title, you missed the r on Grievous.
C) Could this actually be called a set mod? I mean, I get the idea behind such words, but looking this that different... =P

That said, I quite like the result, I didn't realize it was build using the Grievous skeleton until I read the description. I quite like the leg armory, it's a bit messy but doesn't look bad in that sense (I specially like the talons). Favourite parts go to the chest/torso with the addition of the transgreen and the hand design, it's really good and I love how it looks when the four arms are fused. Also nice work armoring the arms too =P Finally, the head is cool; maybe not menacing, but cool. I think a more menacing look could be achieved by either changing her eyes for claws or spikes so they look more narrow, or by using HF claws/ Skull Spier legs around the current eyes as eyelids/eyebraws. Well, maybe.

Wonderful result of reducing the amount of parts in boxes, it really looks great dear =D

A) wat? :confused:
B) Fixed. :D
C) The Grievous Skeleton is very much in there still. I literally just took all the tan off, changed out the dark grey small bones for black ones, and made one of them the next longer one to accomodate a green armor piece in his core. Then I slapped on a ton of armor where I could, and built a derpy looking head, that's all I did. Its absolutely just a set mod.

Thanks Lianyu. I did like the way the hands actually formed together like they should. The rest is okay. This was just a way to amuse myself for an hour before I had to go to bed for work. All my big projects are on hold for one reason or the other. I might be able to go back to working on my Viking dude though. :shrug:

A) In Meki's picture you stated "The office is relatively clean again I suppose I could get in there and try churning out another MOC", I saw this one just after replying the comment xD
C) Was going more in the direction that, while indeed you just mod the set armoring, the appeal is quite different so one could say that it's not a modification but a MOC inspired by. Like, dunno, when you keep the structure of a boat set and build a plane just by adding a few parts. It's a set so modded that doesn't look like it anymore. =P

Oh, I recall a picture of that WIP of it! You were going for such big thing I thought you cancelled the project xD Has it advanded enough? I remember just seeing a cape/skirt of sorts... Barely... ^^"

i find it odd that MOCests from the G1 days dont use the piraka and inika torsos for some MOCs now a days (not inika builds, builds like Alieraah's  Brimstone)
