When his father King Mata-Nui died, the crown was passed down to his eldest son, Ekimu. But his brother, Makuta grew jealous of the honors bestowed upon him. Makuta betrayed his brother, overthrowing the kingdom and banishing Ekimu to the realm of shadow. Now he sits upon the remains of those who dare oppose him, watching over Okoto with ruthlessness and tyranny; waiting for the day the fabled masters of the elements will fall from the sky to challenge his evil reign.
My goal was to display Makuta as a more grounded villain. While he still lurks in the shadows and uses dark magic to aid in his bidding, he's not this giant hulking monster. He's more calculating, conniving, and has minions that do his work for him, opting not to get his hands dirty in most situations because he's in a position of luxury. His evil can be felt throughout the entire land, but he's not hiding, in fact he's very theatrical with his rule over Okoto and sits upon a throne for all to see him in his "glory".
I really wanted to make something that could stand on it's own as an actual figure. So it was important to me that each component of his build had solid connections and that he could actually be "played with" without falling apart.
But yeah, that's my entry I guess check it out on rebrick!
