Since it is said that a Makuta’s weapons can change their shape with them and it seems just the weapons can be changed since it was mentioned in a quote is it just any weapon or it does have to be specially made? Because technically for a Makuta due to their vast strength a car can count as a hand held weapon.
I don’t think they work like adaptive weapons, so i would guess that the weapon counts as an extension of them, similar to the KardaNui Makuta whose weapons became an extension of their body like claws and blades.
I don’t think their tools change shape with them. I know their masks and armor do, because Artakha designed them to do so, but I haven’t heard of their tools doing the same. Can you provide a source?
This is in regards to the Toa, not Makuta.
It is referenced multiple times throughout the Karda Nui arc.
From Legends 9: Shadows in the Sky:
“Well, we should be able to help with these,” Pohatu said, looking at the large, shoulder-mounted weapon he carried. It had appeared when his armor transformed upon arrival in Karda Nui.
From Legends 10: Swamp of Secrets:
Onua readied his Midak Skyblaster – and then discovered to his surprise that his weapon was no longer a Skyblaster. It had morphed into something resembling Bitil’s launcher.
Gorast tried to shake it off, but the sphere held fast. Gali glanced at her weapon, finding it had morphed into a virtual duplicate of what Gorast carried.
EDIT: Never mind all that, I misinterpreted the question.
But yes, there is a source for the Makuta’s weapons being able to shap
I had linked something similar but the OP is asking about the Makuta’s tools, not the Toa.
