Here is my nearly complete Marendar just a couple parts left waiting for in mail.
Some explanation: you may notice the disk in the center with trans colors on it. One color representing each Toa Mata eye color. Those represent each element and is what allows Marendar to resist all elements. The idea is each of the original elements represent resistances to those and to the other elements when activated in combination. For example: earth and fire resists plasma, Water and Earth represents sonic and so on.
I made him bulky cause the quote from Yesterday Quest “Angonce knew the abrupt appearance of so many Toa on Spherus Magna might well activate Marendar. He hurried to the vault, but too late – the living weapon had already smashed its way through three feet of metallic protodermis and was gone. It would carry out its programming and kill any and every Toa on the planet.”
Smashed not melted or blasted, so to me the bulk and claws facilitates that action. I drew inspiration from Japanese Oni and the greatest living weapon of all time… the xenomorph.
Also, after I posted this, I realized my Gahdok and Cahdok have white axle-pins… so after some dentistry on Gahdok the blue pins on Marendar are now white. I know its a tiny detail, but I hate hate the blue pins when visible…
