This is my entry for Nightmare King's Ultimate Toa Hero Contest. I'm going to say this right away, i am NOT a toa builder! I tend to build bionicles about 10" or larger, so building toas is actually challenging for me. Anyway, i gave it my best and this is what i came up with. If you want more info about him just let me know and i'll write a bit about him. hope you like him! I know this is kinda cheating but Ben~ brought up the issue of me forgetting to put a story so here we go!
Toa Yaru is the toa of heat on Zola Island. He was involved in the banishment of Sir Arrifu. All six toa were ordered by king Zolmium, to escort Sir Arrifu off the island. When they returned to the island, it was under attack by Arrifu's brother and his army. All of the toa were killed except Yaru. He fought tirelessly for three day until he finally colapsed. The soldiers captured him and brought him to Arrifu's brother. He order his soldiers to kill Yaru. Suddenly a large beast broke into the camp and began attacking the soldiers. Moments later Sir Arrifu ran into the camp and engaged his brother. Arrifu killed his brother and freed Yaru. He is now the only toa on Zola Island and is good friends with Sir Arrifu and his steed, Renlek.
About this creation
Here is a battle stance.
This is kind of an overhead view but not really. To tell you the truth i have no idea what i was thinking when i took this picture. XD
Here is his legs. The tiny little feet you usually find on a toa didn't look right to me so i made larger custom feet instead.
Again, a very nice toa indeed.Great pictures and poses of your moc!

Overall a good MOC, but i have to be all judgish about it so: I like the style of the body but i have few minor issues with the color scheme (mainly bias, since i don't like orange!). I really like the upper body and the tube-thing for the arm is good but your missing one of the largest req. A GOOD STORY.
I'd say 3 for weapon, 4pts armor, and a 1 for story since you have SOME commentary on him. Total: 8/14
Wow, I am impresed! I love all the detail you put into him I could never make a good custom Bionicle so that makes me like yours even more. The weapons are perfect, I like how you used the Piraka claws on his back, the feet are awesome too.
