"Where I come from we call him the Flame of the South. Lerik, Toa of fire."

,

Foreword:

The way Lerik came into existence was out of pure necessity in my opinion. I was browsing my shelf of mocs one day and noticed I had not build a Toa of fire...

Blasphemy!

So I immediately got to work on creating Lerik. My main goal was to try and make him strikingly red. Like, really red.

I think I succeeded in that area, but what do you guys think about the other areas of the moc?

Long name amazing results

But in all seriousness, I really like this moc, it has a good flow to it.

This MOC has a really nice flow to it, and a good amount of red. The thighs are a bit gappy, but the rest of the MOC looks great.

Also, where did you get the red Matau blades?

I was wondering the same thing but I think they might be painted

Pretty sure the're from the Axalara set; that's the only place I see them coming from.
Edit; just looked it up: Exo Force Grand Titan... Drat, JMP beat me to it.

Strikingly red indeed, sir. No orange, no yellow, no metallic accents. Heck, a halfway blend between this and Uniter Tahu's would be like the perfect color palette for a Toa of Fire... o wait, 2015 Tahu already got it right :P. Solid construction on Lerik here, though, and he seems pretty nicely proportioned apart from the fact that his chest armor seems to sit a bit high...

Well done.

Nice looking moc!

Interesting to see the blades and the mask

BTW about the blades, they also came from Exo Force sets

Too red, he's practically monotone.
I feel it really needs a second color.

Yeah, I think he looks far too red as well. Maybe something metallic to balance him out? Apart from that, he's got a really solid build, some neat looking weapons and a real feel of bulk to him. (^_^)-b

My username appreciates this guy ^.^

That is true it came with an Exo Force set

but mine are broken but I might get a new one

With only red and black, he is rather boring to look at, but a good moc aside from that. Just give him some color

A Toa of Fire with a red Kakama and dual wielding swords, huh? I wonder where that's been done before.

/s his MOC is pretty cool, even if it's very similar to my older Self-MOCs

Also my Self-MOC doesn't even dual wield anymore

While he could use a secondary color to compliment the red, I do find his build to be solid overall.

The build is really nice. Needs a bit more black in the shins.

The red blades are from an old exo-force set.

This is amazing!

Am I the only one to notice that the LE in his name is kinda weird?

Names aren't restricted by region.

The upper torso is brilliant.
Not huge on the upper legs.
