Commission: Ninjago Golden Dragon by retinence Commission: Ninjago Golden Dragon by retinence
Gold is tough to use. I did my best with it. WIP pictures can be found here: retinence.imgur.com/all/
And yes, I know it's a wyvern.

My commissioned MOCs are always sent to the buyer, I don't keep them.  It's best to contact me via email at Retinence@gmail.com regarding commissions and ask me any questions you have.  I prefer not to discuss that in comment sections.

Are you the guy who does artifex on youtube, because this is on his channel. P.S. really cool

Artifex commissioned this model from me.  Many of his models are commissioned from other builders. He says the builder in the description on the youtube video and links their profile.

Holy wow man! I think I tried to use a lot of gold on a build once and yeah, it is hard to match with other colours :P
Lovin' the work!
You should definitely do a massive project like Alduin!

I find it odd that you didn't include dark green, especially considering that dark green HF is now more common. I also noticed you didn't use any pearl gold bionicle parts, like the inika leg and shoulder armor. But I guess you didn't need it :P

The gaps on the tail seem weird for your standards. 5L armor is hard to work with by itself, but....

Anway this is pretty cool, I can definitely see the golden dragon in it, but it's so much cooler, especially the feet. You shoulda done the ninjago parts draft at brickfair, I got 96 of those gold exo-force arms ;)

It has a dark green beard and seat on the back.  I was following the cartoon version more so than the official lego version.  The gaps in the tail are because the commissioner wanted this model to be more mobile and strong.  So the detail was sacrificed.

Oh, I didn't know there was a cartoon version :P And the design makes sense now :D

Amazing. I always wondered why a theme that used so much oriental influence would have all their dragons lead up to... A wyvern? Whatevs. Yours is WAY better. Love the ribs on the side especially. DA seems to be full of amazing MOC creators.

What's the green thing under its jaw?

Mechanical minifig arms.  It's suppose to be the beard like thing on the original Golden Dragon.

Ah okay. I knew what it was made out of, but I didn't know it had a green beard.

This is really, really cool! Did you try having the talons pointing downward? I just think that it'd look a little cooler that way.

I don't like the angle when it's upside down.

Thats good then,a moc so skillfully done and with mobility is what all true moccers dream to make.

retinence Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013
Mobilty is just one aspect.  Bioniclers like it more than most.  Other aspects are strength and detail.  Truly having all three is an impossible dream.

True enough,but it is something you can dream of,you can build a complex detailed moc instead it looses other points and mobility is one of them.
