Image Test Renders of Matoro in Blender

Decided to render in Cycles again since I didn’t like the look of Internal Render.
You’re probably wondering why Matoro is wearing his Iden in Mahri form. Ldraw had the Inika minifigure heads, so I used that since I couldn’t find any good photo reference for his Tryna. Hopefully I can model the mask when I find some.
I’m not really a fan of clone sets, so I might make this Matoro’s default Toa Form, but have him use both his Iden and Tryna like the Toa Mata used other masks.
His sword was pretty simple to model, but I had a hard time figuring out how to make the blade glow due to confusion of Render layers in Blender. Figured it out eventually.

Thank you. :slight_smile: This is what it looked like originally in Blender Internal before I rendered it to Cycles Render:
