I think it's time I post this..
So, here's my most recent MOC, Pakuru. He's a member of the Toa Tokawa (of which me and MrDesert are a part of), a Toa team originating from Spherus Magna. He wears the Kanohi Huna, Mask of Concealment.
Pakuru used to be a regular De-Matoran from the Tren Krom Peninsula. A courageous spirit, he always desired adventures, much to the dismay of his fellow Matoran. One day, he decided to pack up and sail around the Universe, living a life of adventure.
While exploring Le-Wahi in the island of Mata Nui, he encountered a Ta-Matoran cornered by a small pack of Muaka. Pakuru, utilizing a spear he found during one of his adventures, managed to wound one Muaka, scaring off the entire pack. The Ta-Matoran and Pakuru became great friends after that event, with the Ta-Matoran showing him around Ta-Koro and teaching him about forging, eventually becoming Pakuru's mentor.
One day, Pakuru was approached by his friend, the latter holding a strange object in hand. The Ta-Matoran, in an act of kindness, handed Pakuru the object, which turned out to be a Toa Stone. Pakuru initially refused to accept the stone, but he eventually accepted it after his friend insisted repeatedly.
Several days later, Pakuru received word that his friend was assassinated by another Ta-Matoran named Vultraz. Pakuru, deeply saddened by this, decided to approach the Great Temple and become a Toa, in order to avenge his friend and teacher. Once transformed, Pakuru showed little interest in meeting his fellow Toa, and decided to head out alone to find Vultraz.
Pakuru ventured across many islands around the Matoran Universe, slaying hostile Rahi, Makuta, and other creatures without mercy, due to the heated rage inside of him. The only image in his head was Vultraz, and his only desire was to see him suffer. He continued to hop from island to island, leaving a little bloodshed in each one.
Eventually, his anger led him back towards his village of De-Koro, at Tren Krom's Island. Upon coming near his hometown, a shrill noise struck his head. As he proceeded to crouch and groan in pain, he looked towards the village, and saw the other Matoran from the village lying down and screaming with agony.
Upon further observation, he noticed that the perpetrator was none other than Vultraz, now turned into a Shadow Matoran. Pakuru, enraged after seeing his old friends in pain, began dashing towards Vultraz's location. He then stopped in his tracks as he saw another Matoran, wearing a Volitak, attempt to fight back against Vultraz. He continued to watch, until he saw the Matoran be defeated by him. Pakuru proceeded to dash towards the location, firing a sonic blast from his Shotblade, and lightly wounding Vultraz as he was preparing to kill the other Matoran. This attack prompted the Shadow Matoran to retreat, much to Pakuru's dismay.
As some De-Matoran proceeded to recover, Pakuru helped the heroic Matoran heal and recover his mask, which fell off of him when Vultraz attacked. This Matoran reveals himself to be Mazeka, who was also a student of Pakuru's late friend. As Mazeka gets ready to leave with Krakua, another Matoran, and a disguised individual, Pakuru proceeds to leave the village, waving goodbye to his old friendships and his new acquaintances.
Pakuru traveled back to Mata Nui, now calmer and with a far weaker resolve, now knowing that he is not the only one suffering from his friend's demise. He then journeys to find his fellow Toa, and aid them in their quests as a valuable asset to the team.
Now that the story is out of the way, have some pictures! I gave Pakuru a silver Avohkii to compensate for my lack of a silver Huna. I'll make sure to update the pictures once I obtain one.
If he looks kinda bare-bones to you, that is due to my current lack of parts.
The Toa of Sonics himself!
He wields the Shotblade, a weapon capable of firing loud sonic bursts.
Taking a break.
dem muscles tho
So yeah, there's my self-MOC. Feel free to express your thoughts about it, and tell me what I could to to make this better
