A psychopathic scientist that toys around and makes new monstrosities and the little assistant that helps him do it. Of course I'd wanna revamp them.
This revamp of Mutran was, at-first, going to be an average sized moc with general details. Then I started thinking about how much better I could do him if I took on the fashion in which I made Nuhvok. So I went for the larger scale and I personally think it paid off. With the bigger size I could do the chest area the way I wanted to which would seem oversized on a normal moc. This way I can use the larger, horn-type pieces to make the ribs and still keep the chest ball in there. The head is fully custom apart from the mask so that's another win for me. I managed to also use those widened 3-bar pieces which I use here for his fingers. The slight bulk around getting them connected isn't as recognisable on this larger scale.
The meaning behind revamping Vican is just like why I did Nuhvok-Va. Just so I could have an addition to Mutran and seeming as he came in the same set and is completely affiliated with him, why not really. He's not as good I feel as a smaller moc unlike Nuhvok-Va which came out better in comparison as having a smaller 'side-kick' to a larger character. I'm still pleased with him as an added piece though.
Overal another successful revamp I feel.
