revamp of Kirax; I tried to give him a more Makutaish look to his infected side. I think he looks really nice and I think that he should deserve 20 likes, even though I probably won't get them.

Story: Kirax was once the best Glatorian of Tajun, the village of water on Bara Magna. He always has a plan when going into battle which usually ends in defeat for his foe. When the Giant Makuta Robot landed on Bara Magna, he helped defend his village to the best of his ability. After the Battle of Bara Magna and the rejoining of Spherus Magna, he was summoned to Tesara, where he met Fikar, Strarix, Veshtar, Tarvank, and Tarshduk. They became Toa there (him being the second-in-command of the team) and were given the task of protecting Spherus Magna. He exceeded his help requirement of the team by coming up with the team's plan of attack and keeping the peace within the team. On their quest to protect Spherus Magna, Kirax and the Toa Magna faced many threats like the Doystre Clan, Blaholre, and many others. During one fateful night, Kirax was visited by a strange being and was told by it to take a strange stone and attach it to his armor. One day, he was in a battle with Tarshduk and Fikar against three Makuta and was infected with a shadow leech. Under the leech's influence, he attacked his teammates, but had enough of his former self to break free of the leech's influence and dispose of it. Despite getting rid of the leech, he was mutated on his left side, causing that side of his body to become dark. Wondering how Kirax survived the encounter, he and his teammates traveled to Ta-Vil to ask Turaga Firox how he survived. After talking to Firox, Kirax discovered that the strange being that appeared that one night was Artahka and that the stone he was given was a Darstok, a stone that slows down the process of which a shadow leech infects its target. During the next few days, Kirax learned to master his new powers, learning how to fire shadow balls out of his left arm and how to control his anger. Despite this minor setback, Kirax succeeded in defending Spherus Magna. He now tries to find a cure to his dark infection.
I tried to make him look more like a makuta one his infected side. He now has bat-like wings on that side. He now has a backpack on his back (duh). He also has an arm cannon on his non-infected side too. His Water Greatsword now actually looks like it really could be one, and I spent a while on this making it look awesome, but it is pretty heavy.

Back View with Water Greatsword
Back View without Water Greatsword. I like how the backpack came out. :D
Non-infected Side View
Legs, no, he's not wearing odd shoes :P
Torso, my only Toa-sized moc with a custom torso :D (sorry for the glare)
Nice one. However, pretty clumsy looking, and messy.You should try cleaner designs, with less stuff just attached to it (with no apparent purpose, if I may). The amount of pieces and stuff going on doesn't mean quality ;) All-in-all, its good, but yeah, theres some room for improvement.Keep it up!
