Love the Cordak Blaster. :heart_eyes:

As the others have said, the design for the Cordak blaster is brilliant.

As for the rest of the MOC, it does a very good job with retaining the things that made the original set memorable, but also gives a fresh and updated feeling to it.

Being a huge Matoro fan (I yelled out his name when I first got the matron set as a 4 year old), this is really cool to see. This definitely seems like a rebooted version of him and it fits in with G2's style well, but still has hints of Matoro's previous incarnations.

I am fascinated to see how his works have evolved over time from the old-school bionicle to the full use of ccbs-technic. I like it above all because the result is solid and clean at the same time and every character you make preserves its original essence without problems.

Keep it up !!

This is a really good revamp. I like how you tried to make a cordak blaster without the actual piece and I feel like it worked perfectly

Holy moly, now this is something I didn't think I wanted to see until I saw it. This is fantastic, and the Cordak Blaster is so clever, I'm disappointed in myself for not noticing the parallels between the original, and the new stud shooters we got for G2.

This is so darn inspiring that I'm tempted to try and make some of the other Mahri as well, but I feel that would be too copycat-ish given you started with Matoro. that, and that Cordak design would need to be used, and while giving credit is a thing, it still wouldn't feel right given that blaster ties it together so well with how creative it is. Honestly, this is fantastic, and if you make the rest, I eagerly await to see that.

Fantastic work! I am in awe of that torso. It looks like a custom version of the 2016 Toa function

Very well done!
