The Stars Revamp of Mikaru, a character of my old Bionicle-Fanon.
About this creation
The original Mikaru (which I disassembled years ago and unfortunately, I can't remember his entire build) was a fusion of Tahu and Kopaka, and he was the Toa of Thunder (Yeah I know, that doesn't make any sense at all, but hey, I was something like 13 years old when I made that up). He was one of the most important characters of my Bionicle story I created with a friend back then. His allies were Xaro, Toa of Mist (Fusion of Lewa and Gali) and Nova (or Nuvo, Fusion of Onua and Pohatu), Toa of Ore.
Since he's still a mix of Fire and Ice, I decided to throw him into Joe E.'s "Dual elemental Toa contest"
Stars Mikaru is obviously a revamp of Mikaru, designed in resemblance of the original version. He's also one of my first attempts at building Av-Matoran sized MOCs.
A detail of his shoulder design.
His shield, one the most complicated parts of him.
"Oh no, I lost my weaponry!"
Mikaru without sword and shield.
The custom head without his Kanohi. The original Mikaru wears the Kanohi Hau and had blue eyes, and since I don't like the hunchback of the Av-Matoran heads, I came up with this head (the second Balljoint is also quite useful to pose his head).
His sword is rather simple, but also effective.
His original incarnation had a doublesword, similiar to the double weapon seen on the Gali/Lewa/Kopaka-Combiner.
Well yeah, that is Stars Mikaru. He's some sort of a "Farewell"-tribute-character to Bionicle for me, since I mostly used parts from Stars Tahu and Stars Takanuva (the red and the with set of the Stars) to build him.
