Vahara, Toa of Time

Ok, so the submission period for Legos contest is closed so I think it’s safe to post this now :shushing_face:


The idea behind Vahara was to create an avatar for the Vahi, in the same vein as Toa Ignika and Artakha.
I tried to give him a torso with design inspiration from the OG Toa Mata gearbox but allow for functional pistons and full waist articulation, as well as a gear motif inspired by clockwork to try and capture “Time personified”.
His right arm is used to channel his Time Energy and is fully mechanical because I thought: If his powers backfire and he accidentally ages his own limb, it’s going to be much easier to replace than his original biomechanical one, with weakened muscle and crumbling armour.
His staff doesn’t have too much thought behind it, I just went in with “Time Wizard” as one of my bullet point and a staff that can hold the Disk of Time seemed appropriate.

Thanks for reading! Hope you like it!

There’s a lot to love here, from the mechanical design to the unique shape of the staff. Plus I always like it when a moc’s head is a different color from the rest of the body. Well done :ok_hand:

Good thinking

I love the greebled look of this build. Especially the pistons protruding from the torso. The poses are also super impressive, they really make the character look dynamic.

Thank you all for the kind words!

In theory, I’ve only made this guy in Stud.io but the build should work and no painting required.

I’ll try and put a parts list together when I’m able :+1:

That reminds me…

Here’s two pictures of Vahara drawn by me in the last hour:


The first is him in a Ga-Metru Museum with some items made by Vakama. The other is Vahara fighting a Skrall and aging him with the Vahi.

Thank you. I really like the body design you used! It is incredible. And it was an easier design for me to draw since you focused on the mechanical design, with less of the armor typically used on MOCs. I thought it would be nice to have him looking at some of Vakama’s handiwork, since his mask was made by the same guy.

So cool, those gears really give him a “clockwork” vibe. Definitely a suitable counter to Toa ignika
