Here he is!
Pretty labor intensive for such a small figure, as I had to paint every shell by hand, which is ■■■■ hard to do if you want it to look smooth.
The mask is the only thing that turned out the way I wanted, unfortunately...
No clue what his weapon had to be, I had no interesting ideas for that
Might be I'll update the topic when I have something C:
I'm not even gonna talk about the build, I mean, what can I really say about that?
I took the original figure in consideration when working out the color scheme.
Blue legs, red arms and torso. The hands and feet are grey, because I felt that extra blue might be a bit too much, and since I personally want to put Takua in the villager tier, giving him colored hands wouldn't make sense, as those seem to imply some degree of closer association to an element.
Feel free to bash all of those choices, I'm not sure how to feel about them myself.
Just keep the mods happy, eh?
Here he is!
This looks pretty good in my opinion. I love how you were able to turn the Mask of Earth Takua blue. It looks really good. Also I find it interesting that you went with a gearbox build instead of a protector build. But either way, I like it. Can you do Jaller next? I won't get mad if you don't want to though.
Takua's such a special little guy, the least I could do was let him have the swingy swang!
I really took a leap of faith with the mask, I wasn't sure how the color was gonna come through in the end, but I like it too! That's the best paint job out of the bunch for whatever reason ovo Too bad we don't have orange brain pieces...
I could do Jaller too! Wouldn't take too much extra work ^ ^
This is spot on! The bulky design really gives me some 03' Matoran vibes given how that design made the Matoran look stronger.
Thank you! I guess I should put a kolhii hammer together for him XD
That'd be 100% retro
That mask is painted beautifully. It's a simple enough MOC, but I like it.
is rly gud
especially those medium size blue shells
This is really good looking! Good job! I love it!
No... WAY! Lego actually encourages it!? What?
Takua got ripped.
yay another TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Playing Kolhii gets you swolhii
Yeah, I'm so happy about that. Painting is confirmed a Legal Building Technique.
Not sure if you're imitating Teridax or Jaller XD
It's simple, but it works. Good job! It's very clearly Takua, and also very clearly Gen 2.
To think I was going to put ''warning: non purist methods'' in the title
HEY THAT'S MY SAYING WHEN IT COMES TO TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MOCS
I think that honor belongs to Jaller.
