My makuta set finally came in the mail and immediately the peices went to the revamp. Got the set secondhand as a kid so I needed the mask.
New joints include knees, feet, and shoulders. All rakshi containers open and the head retains the mask switching "gimmick" of the original. He can also store the weapon on hugs back. He's actually around as tall as 2015 ultra build darth Vader (who I found out can wear my bionicle jet pack moc with no mods to the set. Who knew.) I basically went what I think the stars tried and failed to do; modernize some classic sets.
My only con is that the legs are somewhat unstable in poses due to to rounded peices I used for the curved feet, but I never saw makuta as a flashy Poses model or character anyway. The topheavy body doesn't help but I think it's mostly the legs. If anyone has any suggestions on that please share.
Here's a pic of the original just for reference.
