“Haven’t you figured it out yet? You have to be insane to be a Toa at all. It’s the first requirement for the job.”
Toa Helryx was the first Toa to exist, created by the Great Beings. Initially, she was a member of the Hand of Artahka in the Before Time, and after that group was disbanded, founded the Order of Mata Nui.
My rendition of Helryx was primarily based on BionicleChicken’s illustration of Helryx as part of a joint effort between us.
Of course, I took my own liberties with the design to give it some more character, but I truly love BC’s rendition.
The Kanohi that she is wearing (a Krakhaan with a minifig weapon attached using a BIONICLE rubber band) is based on this prototype from 2006.
The usage of a Mata torso was based on these comments from Greg:
Since Helryx is not actually physically older than many of the inhabitants of the Matoran universe, Greg would ascribe her frail appearance to the fact that she has been through a lot.
- Helryx is described as being incredible ancient and disturbingly frail in appearance, yet she was created at about the same time as most of the other MU inhabitants. Is this just due to her being one of the earliest creations and her design is just different, or has she actually considerably aged? Also, is she actually physically weaker than an average Toa?
- I see it as she’s been through a lot.
Helryx would probably have something close to a Toa Mata build in terms of appearance.
- What “Toa Build” would Helryx have in set form?
- Probably something close to a Mata build
And, as requested, the breakdown photos.
Thank you for viewing.
