Karzahni, brother of Artakha and nightmare of the Matoran. After finally assembling the pieces for the superb canon Artakha model, I wanted to create a Karzahni model to fit along side him. However, I wanted to use his ‘orignal’ colors of gold and black, as described in Dark Destiny.
He uses a few similar techniques and pieces as his more noble brother, but I also took several cues from the picture in the World book, such as his slightly skinny legs, spiked shoulders, gauntlets, and his bulky midsection.
Despite his top-heaviness, he is very stable, and can be put in several poses. He doesn’t have any play features, unfortunately, but he is, in my opinion, very interesting to look at. He was a challenge to design, as I really only wanted him to have three main colors: pearl gold, black, and just a touch of dark bluish grey. Obviously, his eyes and heart light are translucent red, but I’m not including those as part of his main color scheme.
I’m quite pleased with this one, and hope you like him just as much as I do!
Thanks to @Connor_Hoffman for the inspiration, not only for the Artakha model, but also his instructions for his version of Karzahni, from which I used a few minor points of inspiration (like the Rahkshi heads as his breastplate).
