I recently decided to give my old “G2 Toa of Time” MOC a bit of a makeover.
The first draft of this guy was my entry for the MOC category in BZPower’s “The Legend Continues” contest from a couple years ago (it managed to secure third place in its first round poll - one place to low to advance, but still, it’s something ). I was going for what a G2 Toa of Time would look like, with the idea being that Bingzak would, similarly to Takua in G1, acquire a legendary mask and be transformed into a 7th Toa.
The top half of the Mask of Time is from Shapeways. I usually avoid using 3D-printed pieces, but this was sort of a special case - since the theme of the contest was “stuff you wanted to see happen if G2 continued,” I really wanted to do something with the Mask of Time halves.
You can see the original version of this MOC (as entered in the contest) here. I’m pretty pleased with how the updates came out (particularly in regards to his “shield”), but any feedback is welcome!
