so a very long time ago (almost 2 years now), @tahtorak hosted a contest to build a G2 Toa Nui from the Masters
I really wanted to enter, but at the time, I didn't have Tahu
now i have tahu
so here's what my entry would have been
this took me about 4 months of off and on MOCing to get to a point where i didn't vomit insantly
i'm still not entirely sold on it
the torso is actually really solid
like its pretty much a brick
you could shoot it and the bullet probably wouldn't make it through
the legs/feet are probably my favorite part
they're just about the only thing that stayed consistent throughout the 20 versions of this moc
they don't look very articulated, but thanks to those HF fists on the back, you can get some pretty dynamic poses with them
now by this point you may have asked yourself
"slime what even are those technicolor noodles"
well let me explain
they're supposed to be like energy arms/tendrils or something
they came about because I couldn't design a good weapon, and still wanted a way to show this was a Toa Nui
yeah i know the tail looks dumb
another look at the these useless appendages
redi to fight bad guys
BUT WAIT THERES MORE
the six golden masks of powers
"dude you really need a breath mint"
Overall, my opinions on this combo are mixed. On the one hand, there's numerous problems with it. The proportions are wonky, the HF beast paws are...weird, the torso is shaped weirdly, and the color scheme isn't the most spectacular. On the other hand, I don't know how many of those problems can be attributed to this being a combo model. At any rate, this combo was really hard for me. As it turns out, designing large humanoid combos without technic liftarms isn't super easy.
positive comments are allowed, but negative comments WILL BE IGNORED!!!!
