After much time, I've finally gotten the pictures to make a topic for my self moc. So, without further a-do, here he is.
Other side view:
The large custom hands allow for various hand gestures, such as:
Here's a quick size comparison with some of my other figures.
Here's my cat sniffing Whatiri while I was trying to set up the size comparison.
There are a few weapons I've made for him. First is this.
This small blade is made for slashing and stabbing. It can fire small, low-power electrical blasts.
This is an upgraded version of the Electro-dagger. Or at least what he gets after it. With this weapon, Whatiri is able to fire high-power electrical blasts, and summon great thunder storms.
This isn't for Whatiri specifically, but he's the only one of my mocs that can actually hold it. I made this by taking all the weapon pieces I could find, and a handful of technic connectors, and trying to stick them all together. I think it came out pretty well. Though there is one problem.
The weapon is so big and heavy, none of my other mocs can hold it. Even then, I have to use both hands with Whatiri.
I also made a matoran version of him.
Here he is compared with my other matoran,
and here he is compared to his big toa self.
(The reason he's wearing a different mask is because I only have the one rode, so until I get a new one, he wears this placeholder mask)
A few other extra things
I noticed he looks pretty good wearing a pakari.
Here he is with his pet fikou spider.
Whatiri became a toa not long before the Great Spirit Robot was reactivated. He wasn't able to do much while Teridax ruled the universe, or while the two robots were fighting. Now he lives on Spherus Magna, living a life of peace and prosperity like everyone else. The only problem is that he feels useless with nothing to do. No great evil looms over everyone like before. No threat to face. No immense imminent danger. Its frustrating to live the life of a toa, a young toa at that, when the world has little to no need for toa.
I also made this little short comic that goes a bit into this.
C&C welcome and appreciated. Please tell me what you think. I've spent a lot of time working and revising this moc, and I'm eager to hear what you all have to say.
One image I forgot to include. It shows off how Whatiri is capable of holding himself up on his fingers.
