Toa Mata - Tahu Revamp . . The intent of this was to capture the same, basic appearance that was delivered by the original Bionicle set, including proportioning, color scheme, etc. Of course, I had many limits, but he shares a very basic appearance, which is exactly what I was out for. I also wanted to ensure his poses could come across as being much more natural/organic, instead of the common "stiff" looking sets we've been given. This next set acts as a basic, creative-freedom based weapon assortment. The gauntlet guns/the sword, really. Here's a Nuva edition. Obviously, it isn't based straight off of the Nuva design (the mask was far too large, and I didn't quite care for the armor placement choices -- or, rather, their limitations). And, lastly, a Lava Board, a long with a rifle. I do not like puny, elemental-based boards that can ride on lava. This is really a hover board; big, power based on an engine, etc. It is, once again, not in favor of the actual intent of Bionicle. Simply a way of promoting creative freedoms. Please note that this figure required me to "edit" some of my pieces. I simply trimmed down axis/pins to be sizes which weren't available. For example, instead of a 2m axis piece, a 1.5 axis piece; instead of a 4m pin, a 2m pin, and etc. The also trimmed some other things down, but I have a very kitbash-esque thought process going on, and since I didn't care not to combine this with my lego creativity, I went ahead with it. I apologize for not having any instructions, but I do have a parts list posted here: http://lalam24.deviantart.com/#/d5cuy3h I'm new to Mocpagers, and I can't quite figure something out. This is just a sidenote, but it appears that the upload quality of this site is incredibly poor in comparison to many other mainstream lego community sites. Using the same format (though I changed it SEVERAL times, in order to see if the coding simply had a difficult time compiling the images properly), I uploaded the main Tahu photo on Brickshelf, and here. Here's the brickshelf image: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/LaLaM2442/Tahu/Tahu/tahu1.jpg Why is the turnout of the Mocpages photo so much worse than this?
