Toa Helryx (BIONICLE Canon Contest #1: The First)

Toa Helryx, Toa of water, enjoying her favourite weather.

Some different angles, as well as two action poses (since I couldn’t decide between the two :smile: )

And finally, some breakdown photos taken directly at my workbench! I hope you like it :slight_smile:

I like how you integrated the turquoise into the color scheme!

you might have a vote from me… I love how skeletal it is, VERY reminiscent of the mata toa

This definitely reminds me of an early toa kinda thing. The hunchback is strange though.

Man she’s so cool! Nice job here :grin::ok_hand:

Well, the reasoning behind this is that she’s older than the Toa Mata… so as a sort of meta-nod, I went back in time to the sets that came before the Toa Mata :slight_smile:

Interesting. Amazing color scheme.
Not a fan of the gaint gear, even though I get the reasoning behind it.

Love this design! Captures 2001 and even reminds me of slizers a bit. Nicely done!

Thanks!!

I like the look of the hunch-back, and appreciate the reasoning behind it! I also like the teal- I don’t know if it was the intent, but to me, it looks like parts of her armor have yellowed from there original blue color, adding to her ancient appearance.

@darkbrick999 What a cool concept! - it wasn’t my intention, but I wish it was :smiley: I think that works perfectly well as an in-story explanation! :+1:

Very nice!

@Mantax02 Thank you! :slight_smile:

Yeah, the entry I’m working on does a similar thing by featuring both sand blue and light blue, with one being a faded version of the other.

This! I’ve seen more well-structured mocs, tbh, but this is the one that makes it for me! It’s ancient, mysterious, it almost feels ominous, being it a first attempt for a Toa, but in a very good way!! Well done, I really see this as Helryx
