A team of toa that were supposed to combine into one big titan. Didn't quite turn out as expected.
About this creation
About 5 months ago there was a contest involving creating mocs that could combine into one big moc. Now I was all set for this with an awesome idea, but unfortunately I couldn't pull it off, and these 5 individuals were left unphotographed. So without further ado, I present Team TENGU!
TENGU stood basically for Transformable Evolved Neo-Gori Unit. I thought it sounded pretty catchy at the time. I haven't shown it, but these 5 are able to split their torso down the middle and reposition their limbs and pieces into various formations without disassembly, which is why I figured it would work well for a multipurpose body for any body part. But because of this versatility, it had lost a significant portion of its strength, so it was unable to hold itself up for the most part whilst combined. The combined form was going to be called Chaos, which i'll mention more about below.
Note: They are all supposed to be female.
Nyx - Toa of Night (Torso of Chaos)
Physis - Toa of Nature (Right Arm of Chaos)
Eris - Toa of Strife (Left Leg of Chaos)
Ananke - Toa of Destiny & Fate (Pelvis of Chaos, which reminds me of this)
Hemera - Toa of Day (Right Leg of Chaos
Yep, I was having a greek name phase back then. There was a 6th toa, which eventuated into Tethys, Toa of Fresh Water and was easily converted into a more solid, non transforming form. So yeah, as you can see the design of Tethys borrowed heavily from each of these 5. Photos of these have been taken as I'll be dismembering dismantling them shortly for future projects. Getting that perfect female form can be hell.

Interesting idea, I could tell Nyx, Physis and Eris were female straight away, but couldn't tell the others were until you said. My favourite is Eris, although I like Nyx's stilletos. :D
Yeah, I think Hemera was just too covered up to tell, but with Ananke... I still think she looks like a crossdressing Metus *shudder*
