Okay, I'll cut to the chase and show y'all the boys.
And a quick exploded view to make copying the build easier for anyone who wants to do so:
And seeing as my wife and I are finally finishing it up, here they are lending a hand with Buckingham Palace.
Nice build! The only complaint I have is that Takua’s staff looks a bit too short. Maybe try a five-stud-long axle?
@Mr.Monopoly in all honesty the staff was something of an afterthought-- I only got the head to meet the minimum buy on a BL store. I tried it out with a 5l, but it ended up looking slightly too long and didn't make for a good natural mctoran-y standing pose. That said I agree that the 4 isn't quite right either. (I'm probably just gonna display him without the staff. Or... Maybe with a lightstone or something.)
I guess ideally I'd use a smaller head than the actual chronicler's staff piece to keep things more in scale with the rest of the build, but nothing else I tried really had the right feel to it.
TAAAKUAAAAAyeah jaller?TAKUA! TAKUA!jaller! i'm here!TAKUA! TAKUATAKUATAKUA!jaller stop! your scaring me!
anyways. nice moc
These are clever little guys. Good work.
I would suggest using a HF spike as the spear tip instead of one of Photok's blades.
A truly dynamic duo.
He's the Chronicler, though, and that's because it's the piece for the Chronicler's Staff.
And because I only just thought to do this, here's how they scale with my earlier kopaka:
Wait, those aren't the mctoran bodies?
Looking at the first photo, I legitamately thought it was just the mctoran with the bohrok arms
@Biodude15 hey, thanks! Given that I was aiming for a slightly more 3d mctoran with a little added articulation with these two, that's quite the complement.

In all seriousness, these are some good revamps of Takua and Jala. Not much else to say really.
Nice build! I love how you did your ow thing with the Matoran yet made them look like they did in 2003. Are you planning on building more?
@TyGl20 definitely, but probably not for another month or two-- money is tight right now and I've my eyes on a couple non-lego odds n' ends.
nice! love it! maybe you could make more?
@meepinater I plan to, but not for a couple months.
That said if you've an itch to see more, I've the exploded view up there that hopefully gives a good indication of how the build comes together-- feel free to drop me a message if you need any more detailed breakdowns.
cool, thanks! I could try some...
edit: they are chibi, correct? I might make my own style of chibi... I just need to get enough pieces,
edit: are you on mocpages? just asking
