Tahu Mistika Revamp




I’m starting to realize that I just love building Toa as armed to the teeth supersoldiers…

Thanks!

A shame you got rid of the cool jets on the original model, but oh well, a great remake dude!

I like this! The torso looks really great from the front, as does the rest of the figure. I especially like the shaping of the shoulders. On the back, I would recommend filling in the empty spaces in the piraka leg parts with something to reduce the gaps. Also, another minor thing, if you have a different color of pin to attach the saw blade (light gray, tan, or black are available for that piece, I think), it might look a bit better.

Really, I’m most impressed with the way you have used newer pieces from CCBS sets and still managed to make a figure that is clearly representative of the original Tahu Mistika (and is a vast improvement too.) Great work.

Thank you so much for the feedback and advice! I will definitely take your suggestions into account as soon as I find the parts to do so (I know I have them somewhere, but my parts bins are a hot mess and I just gave up looking before I posted it). I really love this build for toa because it offers a lot of ways to decide between old and new parts, which is why I’ve used it so much.

I feel like @TheOnlyGuyWhoLikesMistika would like this thing a lot.

Huh, I wonder why.

[/quote] Sorry, forgot to reply to this earlier. I tried to figure out a way to fit the jets on, as well as the little red wings, but I could only fit them on his waist. I couldn’t figure out how to get the other two on his shoulders, which made him look kind of bottom heavy. As a result, i scrapped them and used the pieces in the gun and feet.

I do like it but I miss the jets

Looks great, but I feel there is too much black that is out of place for Tahu Mistika

I love the carp out of this. The rifle arm is fantastic. And that custom chest armor package came out great too.

This actually makes me appreciate Tahu Mistika way more, he’s like secret agent Tahu or something :stuck_out_tongue:

Not a fan of the back, but that front is :weary::ok_hand::sweat_drops:. Great job!

Wait, is that a custom torso? And how did you attach those system pieces?

I enjoy that the original color scheme is very much intact. But I do have to say, I miss Tahus original weapon.
