2015 Wairuha! (Not really.) (WIP)

So, I felt like building a toa kaita, and I built this in around an hour.

Also keep in mind that this is not based on any previous appearance of Wairuha. I just kinda slapped on some pieces 'til it looked good.

Why triple? Serves no real purpose other than to make those wiiiidddeee shoulders.

Callback to the older Kaita?

They never had 3 in a row though. Just 2, and then one for the lower torso.

Well, the middle gearbox isn't really being used as a gearbox, at least from the looks of it, but rather to connect the two shoulder gearboxes whilst still being able to use a CCBS torso for the center. Granted, that goes against the original Kaita aesthetic, but artistic liberties, I guess. Sorry for misspeaking there. Probably shouldn't have been up this late, anyway.

Hey, no worries man. smile Was just wondering what you were trying to do there since it looked a little clunky. I actually like the way it looks a lot, other than the wide shoulders! If they were just a bit narrower this would be great. And I know too well that feeling of being up too late but not wanting to stop what you're doing... xD

Yeah, that's currently what I'm trying to fix.

Interesting concept, not so good in action. Narrow the shoulders and clean up the chest though, and it'll be just fine.

I probably won't, I've since scrapped it and I doubt I'll ever rebuild it.
