Oh man, thanks for all the praise guys! This made my week!
I'd love to, but I don't have any decent dark red/black masks available at the moment. @Ekorak, what "add-ons" are you talking about? How can you add anything onto a Kanohi?
10 years!? looks at calender... Dang, I feel old now.
I'd love to. The flat stud is one of my absolute favourite System pieces introduced in recent years. Unfortunately, it hasn't been released in trans neon-green yet.
Thanks! I tried those Technic liftarms. They're a bit bulky but they work very well!
Thanks man! Glad you like it. I also really like the disk launcher. Unfortunatly, I'm hesitant to use it since it makes this figure look even more like Vakama Metru. Also, the Metru-build's rather unique arm articulation doesn't work all too well with those 04 launchers. That being said, I love wrist-mounted/gauntlet-style weapons and so I'll probably keep the Kanoka launcher on him for the time being.
That's the Metru-build for ya. I don't understand why some people say it's even remotely perfect. The arms are incredibly frustrating to pose. Back on topic, I tried using jumper plates, but I really didn't like the look of the anti-studs. Any suggestions?
I intentionally used the larger Piraka legs to differentiate Vardas from the Toa Metru. Any idea what other piece I could use?
I actually really like the handlebars. I made an effort to incorporate as much System greebling as I could in order to make an otherwise generic build more interesting. It's a style that I've developped over my past few months of Bio-MOCing and one I have to thank the likes of @Chro and Fenrek for. Those guys are brilliant.
I like the dark red. Also, I have very few of those dual-female sockets in colours other then black.
After being immersed in seeing/building custom torsos, limbs, feet and heads for so long, every official LEGO build seems boring.
Is it? I don't really see that. Maybe it's the bulky shoulders...
