This is my second submission to
's Triumph of Scrapworld contest. Scrapworld Bio
Matteo, once a powerful Makuta was yet another notable victim to the mutagen, turning him into a disfigured slave to the horde. Matteo went from being another scrap beast, wondering the wastelands of Bara Magna to becoming Arachnes's
pet. Peering into the mind that used to be she found him peculiar and interesting. "Such a dignified mind would be delightfully cruel jest." So she made him her puppet. reshaping his body, leaving just enough biological components to sustain his life, and just enough of the mechanical ones to have limited movement inside a wooden casing made of wood from a few trees recovered from what was left of the jungles of Aqua-magna.
As Arachne stripped away the infected parts of his body, and thereby the mutagen, Matteo slowly reclaimed his mind, such was her intent.
I know not what is a worse fate, having become a slave to that terrible mutagen, or having survived it, only to return to a body that is not my own. ~Dottore Matteo" about the MOC
I've wanted to do this for a while. In the picture of Arachne(linked above) You can see that there is "mini-Matteo-nette", which I still have, but is no longer strung. This was my first attempt at this concept. After trying it out with him, I knew that I had wanted to come back to this idea and reattempt this concept since I wasn't satisfied with the results. This version is a lot better, but still has some slight issues. Once I have more string parts, I may give this a version two update. But overall, I'm very satisfied with the MOC.
