Pictures of the Toa found! 2015!

Hello guys! Was scrolling through tumblr, and found this!

Looks like lego had a slip up and leaked these on their facebook, but deleted them, or something. More dual functions!

Thoughts?

@Indigogeek1 and @kamen_rider_kiva , why are you so awesome? smiley

But seriously, this is some BIG news. My quick thoughts: diggin the dual functions, diggin Onua's claws, diggin this all around.

Wow.

I used to think that Onua looked kinda lame, but looking at clearer pictures now, he looks siiiick! The gold and silver looks cool on him and..

..wait..

..Are those trans-purple limbs? open_mouth

Some observations of mine:

Onua hath trans purple on his upper leg.

Headpiece is definitely gray. #BRAINSTALKSCUNFURMD!1!!!!

Perhaps the reason for his silver shoulders is backup claws?

Those look like stickers on Onua´s chest.

More weird stone spires.

That Pakari is incredi-schway.

The mask is awesome! smiley It looks more serious than the mata version. You can also see the brain stalk sticking out a lot. I'm not entirely convinced with the set itself though.
The use of trans in these sets makes the elemental powers the toa (masters stuck_out_tongue) have more apparent to people who hasn't seen the story or other forms of media in my opinion.
Also, his torso decoration looks like a face.

Looking at the other sets you can see the other toas' weapons dual use (Pohatu- Wing feet, Lewa- wings, Tahu- Swords, Onua- hammer) and that the smaller wepons previosly seen can be used as protection when using second use for all of them (that is an improvemebt from the nuva). For some reason we don't see Kopaka's dual use though. frowning

These pics are great! I love all these dual function weapons!

I'm trying to figure out that as well. It would make more sense if they were trans purple. If they were trans blue it would be a major flaw in the set.
But Onua really looks awesome. His Kanohi looks even better then the prelim. It still strongly represents the original, while looking entirely new.

Great job finding these! We'll probably be reporting on this very soon.

Also, Onua looks like he's trying to eat his upper lip.

I think I'll be calling it Ta-Okoto stuck_out_tongue. But really, it looks epic, you can just see the love LEGO is putting in to this.

Also, can we just acknowledge how much of an idiot this guy is. He took all these photos, and then, he didn't go and post them on Tumblr like a normal person would, no. HE went and posted these on Flickr, which has his real name there in bold.
