Fourth Wall Commentary:
I thought I would give' y'all a sneak peak at some of the fun I have been having revamping classic Bionicles. And, well, what could be more classic than the original six? Welcome back, Toa Mata! I also couldn't resist upgrading and upscaling one of my favorite sets of all time, the Exo-Toa! He accommodates all of them except Pohatu (who was always disproportionate anyways!) I didn't show them in action yet because they will be participating in a mini-saga that I am building a bunch of other things for (can you say Matoran village or Bohrok King?) These are just some early cast shots. Actually, the six have already all fallen into my bedroom's protodermis pit and become Toa Nuva. So for what it's worth, and please don't sue me if you accidentally hurt yourself while experiencing flashbacks! Comments are always welcome. BTW, if you like revamps, check out our new group "Classic Bionicle Revamps" and join in the fun! Piece Out!

Can I use the torso of pohatu for my own pohatu moc? I really like that custom torso of pohatu. I want to build that torso. I tried to build it with the pictures that you posted. But I can't remake what you did. I only want to know the pieces and follow what you did. that's it. I will pay you for the instructions for the torso if you want.

I like Gali (especially the hands/hooks), Lewa, Onua, and Pohatu. Tahu and Kopaka just look too bulky with those cylinder pieces in their chests though. Exo-suit is boss. XD Nice Job

I'm sorry, but these are just too odd. The Exo suit is awesome, but what were you thinking with those Toa? If you were trying to make your own special group I could appreciate them more, but as the original Toa Mata we all love and recognize, these are far too strange. The designs are fine for other things, but as the Toa Mata these look as awkward as the Combos for Wairuha and Akamai. Still, props on the suit, and the Makuta Matoran looks cool. :)

I have to agree. The Exo is pure awesomeness, but the Toa themselves look like they have some sort of strange disease.

Exo-Toa is beyond awesome, but the Toa Mata (except for Pohatu) look absolutely weird. I don't like them. But the Exosuit and the Mini-Makuta make up for that! XD

Quoting Chopperskull 2 YES. The awkward looking toa look more awkward than ever ! I'm sorry, they look really weird, but I'm not gonna hate on them because I don't like what you did. In a way, this is what we needed. Something new and weird out of something old. I'm not understanding why you gave Tahu big shoulders. Kopaka actually looks good, and Pohatu with his weird proportions looks wonderful. Out of the 6 you made, Pohatu is the coolest. Gali is probably the most awkward looking one, and I don't like her at all. Onua is cool too, because of the bulky yet small look to him. Lewa is also sorta awkward and looks too robotic, but again, I see what you were trying to do. The exo Toa revamp is phenomenal and I really love what you did with it. Overal, awesome and creative, yet weird :P
The great chicken leg debate rages on!! Ha! I must have struck a raw nerve by not going for a bulkier look with my Toa Revamps. You have to remember my self-MOC (Gentleman Scarecrow) or look at my newer "Malice" to remember that I do a lot of slender work. I'm somewhere in between with my opinion about them and am a little surprised at the reactions I have gotten. Oh well. Glad you like the Exo-Toa, cuz I do too. Everyone will (I think) be pleased to know that my Toa Nuva revamps have ditched the chicken legs in favor of something more sturdy. I am also toying with the idea of a futuristic corrupted Toa Team and a set of dark hunters to hunt them down and destroy them. Fun, Eh?

Quoting Killer Quadrapeds The Power Armor Smith The chicken-legs are a tad awkward, but the rest of the MOCs are great. Pohatu has hips. :3
Speaking of chicken legs, you should check out my flying Bohrok chicken thingies http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/350861

They all look like you did a wonderful job, but besides the legs on Pohatu, they all look weird and out of place. Sorry man, I like the designs and look of the rest, but the legs kill it for me :/ The Exo-Toa is seriously epic though! :)

Whoa! Exo-Toa is HUUUUUGE! Love the extendable claw arm and the legs! Onua and Pohatu are looking great! And I like the way you use the Bohrok frame on Gali! The torso and the rest are good, but The legs kinda look like they were Hordika. But still, Great job!

Quoting Reaper the Ultimate . You've absolutely nailed Pohatu and Onua. They are perfect! Gali is also pretty good. Unfortunately, the legs of Tahu, Lewa and Kopaka let the side down. They're too thin for the torsos. However, the Exo-Toa is awesome! All in all, a four star revamp. Sorry if that all sounded very critical and high and mighty.
Thanks for the constructive crit guys. I'm curious what more can be said about the Exo? I can see why you guys would think that way about the Toa legs. I will say that, overall, these Toa are quite larger than the originals. Maybe the Exo makes them look small b/c he's pretty massive IRL. Thanks again for the comments. Keep em coming.

Quoting sniperray213 Ultimate Sniper Dude you nailed it all. The Toa Mata and the Exo-Toa suit. I was really impressed on it and wish that you can make a How 2 on it someday in the future :D
Thanks, but I'm terrible at deconstructing what I have made for instructions. I don't have enough patience. I'd rather build something else. Glad you like em!

I like the fingers on Pohatu and Tahu.The poses you put them in are pretty cool too.I see you made that matoran-esque version of Teridax"the Makuta"from the online game.It's cool!However,they are all a bit too skinny.If you added more armour,fill in those gaps,they would look a whole lot cooler.

Unfortunately I'm going to agree with Phos on most of the page. The exo-Toa design is great, I can just picture an army of them like the BOM would've deployed. I will say that I like most of the Toa from the waists up; the legs are the main issue for me. (All in all still enough to warrant a 'like'.) :P

Cant say I like these too much. I really like what you did to pohatu but the rest look... wrong. Kopaka seems very short and bulk for the character and the chicken legs on tahu are not to my taste. Just my opinion but I don't think these are your best. I really do like pohatu though. You nailed the short, stocky, bulky look.
