About this creation
Well, lets start with some backstory, eh?
When Mata Nui was cast from his universe inside the Kanohi Ignika, he flew through the galaxy before eventually plummeting towards the planet of Alta-Nui. He crashed straight in the middle of a vulcoran camp. The blast killed several vulcoran, leaving only one alive. He went by the name of Pyrox, and froze as Mata Nui created a body for himself. With immediate feeling of fear and hate towards Mata Nui, Pyrox remained frozen, stuck between running away or attacking the being that stood before him. Mata Nui walked towards Pyrox, and crouched so that he was nearly face to face with the Vulcoran. "I mean you no harm, small one."
"You...you came from the sky...you killed everyone. Who are you?" "I am Mata Nui. I was once a ruler of a universe such as this, but I was banished from my own realm. I am sorry, I did not mean to kill them. Though their bodies still remain of good use."
"What do you mean?"
Mata Nui rose his arms up into the air, and as he did so, all the vulcoran bodies began to glow and followed his arms upwards. Then, they shot towards his arms, leaving a massive weapon in his arms. "I'm assuming you need my protection..."
A side view. Just to prove that he can carry the weapon.
The Ignita flamethrower is a legendary weapon, created by Mata Nui himself. It uses a large air intake near the rear of the gun to take in the air surrounding it,using the oxygen as a fuel source. This means that the Ignita can be used pratically anwhere where there is oxygen, meaning it is only limited to not working in a vacuum. The Ignita has massive power, although only Mata Nui himself is capable of using the beast of a weapon.
I went through about four different versions before finally building the final product you see before you. Notice I used the Ignika on the top of the flamethrower?
Just Mata Nui by himself. He stands at roughly 10.1 inches with his knees not bent. The body design is all Yuri's, which you can find here, and the legs are based off of Tuma's legs.
