After posting Kualus, I came across the current TTV ruleset, and I can see that Pouks will require some changes, such as the silver on his shins and the Vahki hip piece. Oh, and he’s wearing a version of the Ignika but don’t worry, it’s just a placeholder, which is (currently) allowed! I rather like its long, weird look, and also, I was running out of silver masks that weren’t Volitaks, so here he is: Toa Pouks.
Being described as loud and boisterous, I wanted to make the Toa of stone’s design reflect these traits. Firstly, I beefed him up to make him look like a guy who would solve most of his problems with a jackhammer. Next, I gave him relatively small feet with “toes” as a contrast to his large arms, sort of imitating an underdressed Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 80s. Finally, I used the lesser-spotted backside of the Vezon mask, which gave him a very large head… And then I realized it: I had subconsciously built a gorilla! And I loved it! This meant that Pouks would be a friendly, but imposing giant, who would likely beat his chest after a victory
Again, I’m happy about feedback!
