About this creation
Taparahi & Animara
These two hail from the desert wastelands of Mata Nui. Taparahi is a mercenary, and has captured many creatures of Mata Nui for training as aggresive attack minions. He has a necklace of skulls displaying some of his kills, but doesn't carry his real trophies with him, they are too large and a burden. Animara is his pride--a beast wielding shields on both arms, impenetrable armor and a large spike for offensive maneuvers. Animara is surprisingly quick and agile for his overwhelming armor.
These characters are some of my favorites. Simple builds, but they contain a rare color scheme. Animara's shoulder spines are pieces from palm trees in old Lego Pirate sets! Let me know if you like them!
