Zaria, Toa of Iron

Yes, the parts i need arrived. It took 60 days.
So I finished my zaria.


Zaria was forced to kill to Makuta to survive, violating the Toa Code in the process. The event began to haunt him, and also sparked rumors that he had since made a habit of murdering all of his enemies.


The design was basically intended to be on the Inika scale.
In my headcanon… I thought that TYDQ’s Toa each have a similar body to Mata, Metru, Inika.

kanohi, I used this. I didn’t consider that ability and just chose to fit the design well. I’m satisfied.


Um… I didn’t intend it, but because of the shield, he looks like Mystika Onua.


The color of zaria is gunmetal and dark orange… It is the intended color for weapons and rusty iron. toa of iron has a variety of colors, but this color combination is pretty cool.

In particular, the dark orange, which expresses rusty iron, looks like he’s not taking care of himself.


gunmetal stood out in the front and dark orange color stood out in the back.



The waist moves well enough with a ball joint, and the neck can move really freely with a two-way ball socket.
shoulder shield also can move freely.


As for his tool, I made something a little bold


Gun

To name it, Iron Blaster.

Because it looks more like a weapon than a tool, matorans who saw this might have exaggerated the bad rumors on zaria.

When the trigger is pressed, ammo fired.

Sorry, Takua.



He didn’t talk that much in four chapters of the series.
As a result, I imagined him as a tacit and slightly -badaaaaa- anyway…


With other gun that previous design
Double guns are love.





“Sit down and be quiet,”

Uh… I don’t think it was supposed to be this violent scene…

It looks like you have been very inspired by Bukkeys Orde. I like torso, that shoulder shield and Iron Blaster. Hands look bad tho

One of the best Zarias I’ve seen without a doubt. Excellent work here!

Now that I think about it, it makes sense to me for Zaria’s primary weapon to be some kind of blaster.

His Elemental power would allow him to make basically any melee weapon he wanted on-demand, so there’s no reason (in my mind) for him to prefer one over any other. Blasters, on the other hand, would be harder, if not impossible, for him to conjure out of thin air, so carrying one permanently would fill that gap.

If there’s ever a Zaria contest you should definitely enter this. It looks really good, and even though the gun is a bit out of place for a Toa, it looks great.

Toa of Iron with working guns? Don’t care who wins the contest now, this Zaria is perfect to me. Great choice of mask too.

Of all the Zaria’s I’ve seen, this one tops them all by an insane margin.

The construction just has this really appealing look to it, and I actually really dig the Inika-build proportions.

If there’s a contest, this has my vote. Hands down.

He needs thumbs.

With thumbs, he is winning the canon contest.

Yeah, he looks like the man with no name or some other kinda lone cowboy with his guns. I like that sorta vibe for him, nice job!

Edit: actually, the Onua Shield’s placement on his shoulder reminds me of how the Man With No Name would drape his poncho over one shoulder. Was that intentional?

You’d have may vote if you entered this! I love the shaping of the torso and the masks have a very armoured look to it so it fits in nicely with the rest of the moc, great job!
