This is fantastic! I personally would’ve use Metru green for his armor, but the bright Mata green provides a better contrast with the Metru blue, so it was probably the better choice anyway.

This is by far my favorite Karzahni moc out there. Everything just, fits. Also do you just have these parts lying around or do you have to order them all online?

I’m waiting for the instructions, and I’m not gonna lie, this is the first moc that I truely like from you. I mean your Artakha is good, but for me this feels like much better and it really comes from the fact that the color blocking on this moc is so much better. It is probably the only Bionicle World inspired Karzahni what I would accept as the official original form for him. I really like how you tried to mimic the skull on hos belt with the tile on the Rahkshi head, without any stickers, maybe it would be cleaner if the technic wings on his sides would be dark blue, but iirc they didn’t come in that color. I would more like the moc if the green of the lower arms/legs weren’t mixed with the dark blue, but it would require painting the visorak feets, and I’m glad you didn’t. The chestplate with the Rahkshi heads and the ccbs shell looks so smooth, the shaping is really nice. Maybe the foot would be better if it was built only in 1 color, but seeing that your Artakha used the same method, I can see why was it done that way. The trans-neon-orange chain is a nice touch as the activated Flaming Chains, I just loved to see him wielding the same ones from the set as the “inactive” versions on one picture. Also I quite like the small hammer, it’s well built and compacty and I always imagined him having one for his work.

The mask is very well painted, it’s pretty accurate, and the colors really pop!
