TC97: Safety First by Rahiden TC97: Safety First by Rahiden
This triptych was produced as a result of a suggestion by ~imaNINJA2 to make add-on items for Niyyan. In this case, I went for scuba gear, skis (already built) and a set of gliding wings! Admittedly I didn't spend very long building each one (in 100TC tradition), so the focus here is definitely on the presentation, of which I am quite proud. The whole Safety First connection is because of the saving-Spore vibe, which was what was intended in the original suggestion.

I also realise that this deviation looks rather like the flag of France. That was unintentional.

Wow. I just realized I've seen Niyyan so many times, I forgot what he looked like.

This is so cute! It's like those little pieces you see for sale for action figures.

I'm not seeing the jetpack, but the diving gear is nice

That's because it's not a jetpack. It's just some wings that weren't very aerodynamic, so I flattened them and called them gliders!

Sorry I misspoke, but I don't think they make good wings either :shrug: LEGO is really terrible for wings

Yeah, I know they're not that good. I wanted to use the black plates from the Toa Ignika set, but I didn't have any equivalent pieces in white.

With Spore sitting on his shoulders, it reminds me of Yoda sitting on Luke's shoulders in Empire Strikes Back. (Small, green person on normal sized person's shoulders.)

Is it just me, or does the way Spore is looking at Niyyan make it seem like she has some feelings for him?

>_< I always try to avoid this. She's just a child! I'd rather she saw Niyyan as an older brother than a love interest.

:D I made this happen! Very nice, especially dem scuba feet. :3
Also, mebbeh a separate deviation for the add-ons, hmm?
Viva la france!
The glider seems a bit flimsy though (>,>)

I don't think the add-ons deserve their own deviation ^^; I was considering putting pictures of them at the side of this one (in the style of a blueprint), but it'd ruin the presentation.
The glider is surprisingly stable, thanks to the stiff(er) HF joint in the middle. Not like I'll be using it much, that is...

Funnily enough I like the gliders least! They were actually a half-attempt at making flappy wings, which didn't really work aerodynamically. I didn't have the right pieces to make something jetpack-like, so gliders were a kind of get-out clause.

I actually made a jetpack for my MOC Navajo using a couple of grey wing pieces from the HF Dropship and two Nuparu Inika laser drills. It looks like it was tinkered together from salvaged parts. Which is what I was going for, of course.

 

I thought the use of Inika-build shoulder parts for your wings was brilliant.

Ah yes, I remember that. It's a shame that black and white aren't terribly accommodating towards winglike pieces, but I maintain that the best thing about Niyyan's (and Absol's) colour scheme is that I can freely use my odd-numbered black and white parts, which would be practically unusable elsewhere!

Ooh, that is a plus. I never thought of that one!
