Tahu Nova
This is my tribute to the first bionicle I ever got, Tahu Nuva.
About this creation

Here's the story behind him.

Tahu was in his strongest form when he was wearing the Golden Armor. He was enjoying a nice day when suddenly, a group of Skakdi attacked a group of Agori and Matoran. Tahu ran to stop them but something jumped right into his path. It was some sort of advanced Turahk. Tahu used the power of the golden armor to destroy it, but it didn't work. The creature didn't even flinch. "Whatever it's made of, it's too tough for even the golden armor,"thought Tahu,"So I guess I'll deal with it the old fashioned way!" Tahu attacked the Rahkshi, but it blocked each attack with ease.

But Tahu was not going to let that stop him. They fought for hours, but it felt like days. They fought until they were very far from the Matoran. They battled into a cave that they soon saw was a pool filled with energized Protodermis. Tahu than realized what had to be done. He faked a hit, and lunged at the Turahk, pushing it into the protodermis. Tahu was releaved to have this finished but just when he turned to leave, the Rahkshi's hand burst through the liquid and grabbed Tahu's foot. Tahu couldn't react in time and was quickly pulled under by the Rahkshi. Tahu thought it was all over, since the liquid would kill them both. Those were Tahu's last thoughts.

Tahu was surprised when he woke, still inside the small pool. He burst out of the liquid, wondering why he was still alive. Than Tahu realized that he and the other toa were turned into Toa Nuva when they fell in energized protodermis about a year earlier. Tahu put together that since he was a Mata again, he was turned into a Nuva once again! But since he was wearing the golden armor, it merged with him, and made him even stronger than before! Satisfied, Tahu picked up his two blades, and started the long walk home.

Here's a close-up on Tahu's hand with posable fingers.

See ya later!

I saw Scott Aldridge's Tahu Nuva tribute and decided to make my own. Though it was a good idea to use Tahu Mistika pieces for it, I thought it might be better if I stuck to the original Tahu Nuva pieces.And here's the outcome.This bionicle has really evolved, and you can see his previous forms in my moc, Tahu Nova: The Legacy. Please comment and rate if you like this. Also, this is a contest entry for the Bionicle Remake Contest. Oh, and I used Photoshop for the first pic.

Tahu was always my favorite Bionicle from TLG. I hate to be a pain, but is there any chance you might be able to look at this? I thought you might find him interesting and I wasn't sure if you saw it or not... http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/275306

Yeah, I really want to change the dark red shins to orange, but I don't have those pieces. But what other distracting colors beside the main red, orange, and silver do you see?

Hey, my cousin thought of the name, and I don't think it's too bad. And sure I'll check your thing out. Oh, and the shins are made with Fenrahk leg pieces and some Hordika feet. I could go into more detail, but it's hard to explain.
