MOC: Totsuzen Katana by Biodrawxel MOC: Totsuzen Katana by Biodrawxel
Totsuzen Katana is japanese for Sudden Sword

Totsuzen Katana is the sword of Hitori Katachi, the Lone Figure. Totsuzen's aerodynamic qualities allow Hitori to sprint at extra high speeds (this includes when he is jump stepping). Totsuzen also is built with an engine inside (as can be told by the exhaust pipes protruding upward in back). This also allows for greater running speed along with greater swinging speed thus resulting in more power on hit. It also has special properties that allow Hitori to summon it at any time (or just bring it to his hand (like the force from Star Wars)). It's sleek design and red/black color scheme also makes it a perfect match for Hitori.

By ze way; le CG hwas done by mehself :iconherotimeplz:

Well, this sword may be awesome, but katanas are long and thin. This matches the long part, however, it's a bit bulky in the lower half of the sword. Although, with there being an engine inside the blade, this would be the closest you could GET to a katana. So, amazing work anyway.

So, who wields this sword? A Kamen Rider, or what?

Funny you should say that because I actually haven't seen the show (although I would like to watch it at some point). I have seen clips here and there but that's it. You are correct in that this is a Japanese style influenced sword though.
Thanks for the comment

Holy mother of Mata Nui, I wanna make something like this! There needs to be tutorials on how I can make awesome stuff like this!
Reply
:iconbiodrawxel:
Biodrawxel Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Student General Artist
Um, tutorial ^^; not on this anytime soon...
But who knows maybe there are some lego/bionicle building tutorials out there... practice is really the best thing one can do though (surprise). Also analyze how other people build and look at certain strategies they use and odd piece attachments; use pieces in ways they were not designed to be used (like feet for chest plates or arm guards)... Also color scheme, I can't emphasize that enough. Nobody likes rainbow toa; it makes one look like an amateur... Also avoid the Inika template when building, be creative and build custom torsos...

As far as swords go, you want an idea of what you want your sword to look like before you start working (well, not necessarily but it's always nice to have a goal). The first step to making a sword is to create a "skeleton" of it that is sturdy and gives the overall shape of the sword (my swrod's skeleton can be seen here[link]). Then you pretty much spam on pieces to provide the effect you want. Mine for example had an aerodynamic, steam-punk, engine quality. If you were to make it you could go any way: dragon, organic, futuristic.

Anyway that's what I have on sword design for ya...
Thanks for the comment! =D

Dear mother of bageezus. This is friggin amazing >:U
I love the little random steam pipe thingies coming out of the back xF And even though this would be a little impractical irl, I would SO lug this thing around with me if I had one :'D
Particularly though, I love how you made the two blades seem look like one. Great job dude <:I

Katana? You sure about that? The closest sword I've ever seen to that would be a dadao.

Looks much closer to a Dadao to me.

...hmm could be a dadao now that I take another look at...

maybe it's more suited in this catagory: [link]

Which is actually the style I was aiming for; over sized, disproportional but a beast none the less.

Wow that's awesome. First thing that came to mind was Soul Edge from the Soul Caliber games. Or what ever Nightmare's sword is called. :P Isra got a Scimitar that I never posted where I did the same thing you did, stuck the two brutaka blades together. I think I like the way you managed to get yours done more than my design.

Is this just for show or can any of your MOCs hold it?

Soul edge from soul caliber? *consults google*... :wow:

wow... das like the best sword that could be associated with Totsuzen...

It is mostly for show because it's very heavy and not easily held by mocs, but it does have the ability to be held. It is meant to be Hitori Katachi's sword so... yes and no
Thanks for commenting =)

Yes Soul Edge. It looks like that sword when Nightmare has it.

You're welcome? :shrug:

Ahh I see. I should probably try my hand at those. I've never built a just for looks sword or weapon. You're welcome, for sure this time. :lol:

Is the handle designed to be held by MOCs? If not, you really should see about thickening it.
The actual blade is AMAZING. I'm not familiar with the design, but the curve you managed to get with those blades is nigh on perfect.

Thanks. It is actually meant to be held by mocs but i agree with needing to thicken it... I'm not sure how I would go about doing that though. Do you have any suggestions as to how?... The blade actually has a fairly simple design, that i don't feel like explaining *chuckles*... Thanks very much for the feedback

Very epic sword! I was going to make one similar too this as far is the blade is concerned for a certain set revamp [A secret one, lol.] sometime after my self moc's total revamp.

Plus its easy to narrow the character selection down. Just look only think those that have a sword among their main melee weapon. [This does not mean that the sword is the only melee weapon, but it doesn't mean that the character has any others either.]

I'll let you know when I post it, if you'd like.

Btw, if you want to list the possible characters from the storyline in a reply comment I'll let you know if you're missing one or not.
