Helryx, the first toa, and the leader of the Order of Mata-Nui. I always imagined her as a tough, armored warrior, who stands tall and makes the hard choices. The biggest offense to the source material is probably her color scheme, but I feel like the white and orange really brings out the intensity of her personality.
For her weapons, I went with a flanged mace to shake things up a little. It still has spikes, so I think it counts. The shield was something I struggled with, because I wanted it to be big and solid, but she still needed to actually be able to hold and pose with it. This is still a little too heavy, but I really love the way it looks.
Speaking of poses, here’s a few of those!

This is a closer look at the upper leg.
And here are the hips.
Good luck to all the other entrants and may the best moc win!
