So, after I got Tahu and Ikir a could nights ago, I wanted to see if I could redo Tahu himself using only him, Ikir and the 2015 version of Tahu. What I got is what I think is a simple combination of the two:
My goal was to keep him as close to the Uniter form as possible, but adding a little more red from the previous model and adding a little flair. I also wanted to keep the wings from Ikir in, but at the same time I like the look of the gold mask without the helmet.
I also wanted to give him larger weapons (mostly because I liked the previous ones, but also was too lazy to take apart the new ones). Extending the fire swords felt like a good idea, although some might say they are a tad too long.
As for secondary weapons, I felt that Ikir's feet would actually make perfect gauntlets/claws for the Toa of Fire to use, and could double as very large silver hands that kind of break the color scheme.
But that's not all! I also wanted to do a little bit with the back. I know it may not look like much, but a little more armor on the back under the wings I felt was a good move too.
I was thinking of putting more armor on the arms, specifically the upper arms under the shoulder pads, but I found it restricted the movements more than it already is (I dont mess around with the joints too much, so they still stick quite a fair bit for me).
So what do you guys think? Have any of you thought of using only the sets provided to improve the look of one or both yet? I'd love to see if you can improve on my idea or see some of the other Toa/Masters!
