Just in time for the end/beginning of the year (depending on time zones)! Here's Akara version 6.5. He was updated last minute before being uploaded, which explains why his legs look different from the promo pic on Dystrax. I hope you enjoy! Questions, Comments, Concerns, and Ways to improve are always welcome.

The long bio, as summed up as I can make it.
It all began when the Brotherhood of Makuta started killing all the Toa of Iron and Magnetism. Strangely, they missed Akara, so a secret organization hid him away in Metru Nui.
Obviously, he had no memory of what had happened in the past, so he thought he was just a regular Onu-Matoran. Unlike the others he loved the light and hated the underground. He also had his own workshop where he regularly built various creations.
One day he found 2 toa stones and met up in the Ga-Metru shores with 5 other matoran. Then they set off to where Toa Kryote was rumored to live on. In a few short minutes their boat sank.
10 years later, Akara became a toa. His armor back then looked very different from what you see on this page. He still had the cape, but his armor had no silver on it. It was pure black and he had a great Ruru instead of the Avohkii shaped Arthron-like mask. Instead of his variety of weapons he just had a simple hatchet-like weapon.
One day he accidentally killed a fellow toa with his unknown (to most, including him) Magnetism Powers. After that he lived alone on an island until Spherus Magna reformed, honing his powers and training.
A while after Teridax was defeated, Sephiroth the Tyrant took over the world. Sadly one day on a reconnaissance mission Akara was captured. He swore to himself never say a word when they questioned him. So due to that he was permanently blinded by a rahkshi (it literally took his eyes out.), all his armor, including his mask, were taken away, and chains were permanently bonded to his arms and legs.
3 years later he had been rescued by fellow toa Narios and Kristo. Everyone thought he died but he didn't. Callan had apparently become the leader while Akara had been gone and the number of people against Sephiroth had tripled.
To help with his blindness he was given an Arthron-like mask in the shape of an Avohkii. He was also outfitted with knight-like armor. This made him nearly unrecognizable.
After Sephiroth died from Gravik's sacrifice Akara had ushered a new era free of evil. Doing so he had ended up shutting down the corrupted Galaxus forever. But Galaxus was not shut down as he had a fail-safe. And Galaxus again numbered the amount of Toa, and making an army of robots.
A group of Rogue Bots however joined with Akara, who now had an EMP generator on his wrist, and ended up destroying Galaxus, his large beast, and his army. Little did he know Galaxus still had a backup program somewhere.
Akara then expanded the population of the matoran race through using his (and of the few surviving toa)'s cells to make more (like cloning, but different). Years later he (and all the other donors of cells) finally died after using up all his toa-power and cells to create a new population of toa.
Lower legs and feet. I chose Metru Feet because I wanted more silver by his feet. Besides that, the lower legs pretty much look the same.
Side and partial back view. Almost completely redesigned from the last version. He also now has a Hero Factory armor piece on his leg, just so there won't be too much black.
Upper legs. There's a few greebles here and there.
Side and partial back view. I wanted to go a bit 'Galaxus style' on the sides. There's also some silver to balance out the black.
Torso. Still has the Nuva chest armor. Originally, before posting the pictures, I wanted to make it a bit like Galaxus' or Dystrax's . Another thought was for a bohrok shield, but I ended up with the Nuva part. The waist/hips and frame are completely redesigned.
Back. As you can see there's a gear on his back, covered by a Hero Factory chestplate. I really like the use and you can see it on a future MOC.
Right arm. Akara eventually found a way to remove his chains, fashion them into one long one, and use it as a weapon. The chain can be used as an array of things. Due to the weight of the chains Akara constantly adjusts then, so they will always be at a different length and be wrapped around his arm differently.
Besides that, his upper arm no longer has the spike poking out, and there is an entirely new frame to it. He also uses a lower arm design similar to his last version, except the Skrall part was replaced by a Hero Factory piece. His fingers no longer have claws and they are silver.
Did you also notice I have enchanted my shoulders with jewels?
Left arm. Nothing different from the right, except he has a wrist-mounted Electromagnetic Pulse generator (amplified by his powers)/plasma blaster. Just to add some asymmetricality.
Time for some another images of me and some friends I'd like to assault your screen with!>
Akara, with just his chain.
Here's Akara with his sword. Based off Gringat's design. Gee, this could be a cool poster.
Hey Dystrax, what's wrong?
Well first, I have some parts missing and I had to get some black parts switched with red. Second, you're not dead yet. Third, you look more like a knight then a samurai.
I can make you feel better...
I CAN KILL YOU!?!?
THIS IS AWESOME!
HOW DO I BELONG IN THIS? AM I EVEN POSTED YET? WHY ARE WE YELLING?
(Insert name of character here) You belong in this as a hidden character. You were posted on deviantart along with many other MOC's that have not been posted yet, and I don't know.
Fourth Wall Comments:
I know I've been inactive, but I can explain why!
1. I have a thing called school.
2. I now have a Deviantart Account.
3. MOCpages and my computer do not interact well. (I had to upload every picture one at a time, and half my page was destroyed by just pressing backspace on accident).
Amazing updates dude ! I love the greebles and use of technic, and the legs are really nice. At first I wasn't too crazy about the mask (many people use it) but now, it looks great on him ! He has truly become amazing ! 5/5 :D I do not see any way to improve him !!! :D :D :D :D :D :D
