Entry Topic
3-Leaith Flex_X_ME
3.Warrior Toa/Hero-a toa hero that resembles warriors that actually existed.

Soo I decided to build a Samurai inspired Toa

Name: Takaru

Titles: Guardian of Artakha, Toa of Energy

Species: Matoran

Element: Pure Energy

Kanohi: Rua, Mask of Wisdom

Allignment: Lawfull Good

Weapon: Shadow Blade

Status: Deceased

Bio: Takaru's matoran life is hazey and little is known about it.Once becoming a Toa, Takaru was presented with an Kanohi Rua (He was the only other Toa to wear one along with Toa Wairuha). Takaru spent his time as a Toa defending Artakha's borders along with Makuta Kojol. Together they proved an unstopable force against evil and saved the city countless times. With their assistance the city was a beacon of hope and a sanctuary from the evil and chaos that lay in the world. But that time did not last. With Makuta Kojol joining forces with the Brotherhood of Makuta, the City of Arthaka laid defenceless and Takaru proved no match to the armies of Visorak and Rahkshi that soon conquered his homeland. Half dead, Takaru managed to escape the destruction and spent his time wandering the wastelands of the Southern Continent. Blaming himself for the Fall of Artakha, Takaru was driven insane believing his purpose was lost. In the years after the destruction, the newly formed Order of Mata Nui were assigned to the removal of all traces leading to the existence of Artakha. It was a difficult job with an OoMN member by the name of Tobduk assigned to eliminate all who knew of the realms location. It did not take him long to track down Takaru who willingly gave up his life as a result of his actions in the Raid of Arthaka. Over the ages, the heroism and deeds of Takaru were soon forgotten as was his homeland Arthaka.



Okay. I tried to make it as Samurai like as possible with whitch i think I did alright with. Maaaaybe a little more time would've been useful but I'm still happy with the results.



With the head I chose that mask as I thought it looked kinda like a helmet with the gold ornaments. Plus I managed to fit it in the story.



The legs were a pain, as usual but I managed to do something I quite like.






I actually quite like the Katana. Its simple but still looks great. In my opinion anyway.



Actionish pic



Okay ths is my Favourite pic of him. Waddaya think?



Well this was deffinitely challenging. A little out of the comfort zone but I think I managed to pull a great one here. Best of luck to all competitors and I would love to hear your thoughts as I hope to revamp him in the near future witha bit more time. If you like what you see RatE and Comment!

Till Next time See ya!

Again I'm really sorry and if its really bothering you, please tell me and I would gladly change it. ----- Nah, it's totally fine, These type of things happen all the time. Let's just say he's from a pocket dimension, is that okay? Oh, and did you make it further in the bio cup than in round three? I hope ya did. :)
Well this guy is in my storyline. ;) I had to forfeit the round to Gringat. due to personal reasons.

Quoting Saunax Toa of Steam Oh, COME ON! seriously! Spammer, You only need to post a comment ONCE! I don't think Darren or the Others wanted this, so STOP! Anyway.. Nice job. Maybe a crest on top of the helmet would look good?
Yeah I just want it to look like a traditional kabuto.

Quoting Everox Toa of Plasma Very Nice! I've tried making a kilt like this for several mocs, but I have never succeeded. So congrats on that. It looks very much like a samurai, but his name seems a bit familiar.... ahem http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/308814 ahem. :P

How curious... On one hand, this guy has a perfect Samurai look, but the head is a Toa one. On the other hand, your rival had a great Samurai-demon head, with the same colour scheme. If you combine them, we would have a perfect Samurai Toa (no offense, I wasn't saying that your entry's head is bad). I'm my opinion, there's already a winner on this category ;D

Quoting Toa Infernum Nice! I love it all! I just wish the mask was gold to go more with the color scheme. I actually have a samuri inspired MoC that I haven't posted yet. :)
Thanks Infernum! I actually do have the gold Miru but it was more to the bronze side of things and I thought the silver flowed better. ^.^

Quoting Vorred 03 Great entry! The armor looks fantastic, and the rubber pieces are very well used there! The mask and the blade also matches his look, and a red/gold color sheme is always very nice! Good luck in the contest!

Quoting Leaith Flex That is way cool, I definitely think I have some competition. I have noticed yours is more Samurai based and mine is more Samurai inspired. So best of luck to you, I hope we keep a friendly competition between each over and I would be more then happy to be competing with you again some time in the future!!!
Thanks mate. We should definitely keep a friendly competition between us ^.^ A moc off is in order after this comp is over I hope! :D Best of luck.
