I’m new here on the boards and it took me a while to figure this out. But here we go!
This is my version of Toa Helryx
I’d been through a couple different iterations of Helryx before this contest came, and I decided I needed something new for it. Helryx is described as “frail” and with armor Takanuva didn’t recognize, so I decided to use the blue Knights Kingdom armor. I opted not to use silver armor on her because I’ve always thought that was more of a Toa Nuva/Hagah thing.
Helryx is also mentioned as having something close to a Toa Mata build, so I wanted to replicate that, but not use a block Mata torso, so I made my own. I think the lower half really matches the lower half of a Mata torso, with the pistons on the side and the gears in the middle. She can actually move her torso side to side, which is pretty cool.
She’s not so much frail as she is thin, but underneath her armor she’s much more ‘frail’ if you will.
Here’s a side shot + size comparison
And finally a picture of Helryx with her boys Brutaka and Axxon
