Actually, this is the 10th version of Voltstorm (still not quite fond of the name, but I named him that several years ago).
MOCpages link: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/452778
Species: Vo-Matoran (created by the Makuta of Vaha Nui)
Mask: Kanohi Kakama, Great Mask of Speed
Home Island: Vaha Nui
Weapon: Scepter of Elemental Energy (more on that later…)
Affiliation: Toa Vaha (leader)
Backstory: After the Vaha Nui Civil War, and event which decimated the Matoran population of the island, the Makuta of Vaha Nui did something almost no other Makuta has ever done: he created new Matoran, thousands of them, to repopulate the island. Voltstorm was one of those Matoran, though it remains a mystery as to why the Makuta made him a male Vo-Matoran, as most other Vo-Matoran are female. Voltstorm’s fellow Matoran (except a Vo-Matoran named Volah) thought that a male Vo-Matoran might be a sign of a curse on their village, causing him to live on the outskirts of Vo-Koro. At some point, Voltstorm encountered a Ta-Matoran and a female Av-Matoran, both of which were on the run from the Dark Hunters’ constant siege on the island. A Toa of Iron, accompanied by a Fa-Matoran, a Bo-Matoran, and a Kra-Matoran, visited the three Matoran, informing them that the Turaga of the Vaha Nui requested their presence. The Toa and six Matoran traveled to the island’s capital, where they found the Turaga (a Le-Turaga, to be specific) and, upon meeting him, the Turaga gave the six Matoran Toa Stones, which transformed them into the Toa Vaha…
Here’s the obligatory front view. Yeah, I’ve never been good with custom torsos…
Just your average dramatic pose…

Notes: I may do a little work on Voltstorm’s backstory, since there are a few things I could still improve.
Thanks for viewing, everyone!
