[joshdem] BIONICLE Upscale Series: The Toa Mata

The Toa

“Tahu, Toa of Fire. Onua, Toa of Earth. Gali, Toa of Water. Lewa, Toa of Air. Pohatu, Toa of Stone. And Kopaka, Toa of Ice. Great warriors with great power, drawn from the very elements themselves. Together, they were six heroes with one destiny: to defeat Makuta and save Mata Nui.”
Narrator, Tale of the Toa


Toa Tahu, Toa of Fire


Toa Pohatu, Toa of Stone


Toa Gali, Toa of Water


Toa Onua, Toa of Earth


Toa Lewa, Toa of Air


Toa Kopaka, Toa of Ice


Golden Kanohi


Bonus Pohatu pose

Bonus Trivia:

Order of Creation: Tahu, Gali, Onua, Lewa, Pohatu, Kopaka

Most to Least Favorite (Design): Pohatu, Tahu, Gali, Onua, Lewa, Kopaka

Was really happy to keep Onua and Kopaka in Old Grey and Old Light Grey respectively instead of resorting to using the newer bluish grey and light bluish grey pieces produced now by LEGO. Tahu, Kopaka, and Lewa also all have their ‘buttons’ in their chest. Pohatu has the ball joints on his shoulders.

And Pohatu is the best Toa of all time, he’s everyone’s friend, didn’t turn evil in the Toa Empire, don’t @ me, that’s why he gets an extra pose at the end

I agree with this.

I recommend adding some large pistons to increase the width of the torso. They’re all pretty good though! I especially like the greebly leg designs.
