I am late, but I have to say I like the design. After looking at all the posts, The original Style is still the best for me. Even with the skinny legs, It gives it a sense of action.
However I have some minor complaints. Gali is going to have a big thigh gap, well not sure if this is a complaint. However that cloth used to cover her converges into a dot. Unlike normal cloth, giving the impression she is wearing a mini skirt. No problems here on the North of america, just wondering how this will affect the international reach it will have. Some countries are not as open. Either way, the main audience for this line has always been the United States.
Tahu looks like he is slouching, a little. It gives me the impression a Gorilla would make if they where enhanced to have a more human posture. I thought Onua would be the more gorilla looking. Very aggressive, not sure I would want him as a leader, but props if that is what you were going for.
Onua has a weird problem with his right wrist. It is crooked. Granted most of the weight is going to be supported by the other hand, but you still need the right hand to counter balance the weight. and having the wrist fold like that will not help. Not sure if you have a two handed hammer to try this. Unfortunately not sure how you can fix it. I am sure there is a reason why the wrist looks like that.
Pohatu's nose and chin. Everyone has talked about it. It looks weird, however it looks better than all the proposes solutions. The chin is not so bad, considering the nose is what distracts you from it. The size of the mouth hole is fine. Sorry, can't help. However, even if I cannot find a solution I still cannot accept it. It is that distracting. Maybe I'll get used to it over time? Moving away from it. His weapon does not give much of a sense of weight. Specially considering how unbalanced it is. Normal people would find a way to balance the humongous rock on one side, by placing it closer to their center of gravity. Unless of course, it has a counter weight. I do not see that little crystal weighting as much as the other five crystal on the mace though.
Now, to what I like.
Well, this is the majority of things here. The color schemes of all the Toa.
All the weapons. Even though they are not the official ones, I like them all.
I also like how their poses exude their personalities.
I specially like Lewa's. If I have to pick, she is my favorite pose, I also like the creative use of her elemental power to move axes through the air. I imagine her arrogantly commanding her axes to attack her enemies like one would do dogs, while she sits back, surveying the field. However she also gives a playful side to the pose.
I also like Kopaka's posture, very military -like. Organized and procedure based. Just from that I can imagine the Style Iho uses to fight. Rows upon rows of infantry. shield in front spears pointing towards the enemy. A little like "300" Spartans. Except more calculated, and mechanical. Shield bash, spear stab, block. Advance! Shield bash, spear stab, block. Advance!
I have to add, fantastic backgrounds.
