Yes, three whole years since I've joined. I've gone a long way since then. This post will be of Akara in three forms that he has been in through his long (suckish) life. I hope you enjoy!

About this creation
Here he is. All three forms. I purposely didn't completely show the past and future versions, as I wanted to keep a hint of mystery.
Name: Akara Gender: Male Species: Matoran Race: Magnetism-Toa Occupation: Toa, Protector, Member of the Toa Kryote Title(s): Rookie, Kid, Element: Earth (Presumed to be) Weapons: Wit, Intelligence, Axe, Dirty Tactics Kanohi: Noble Ruru Alignment: Lawful Good MOC Status: Assembled
Akara is a rookie toa, having only recently turned into a toa by a mysterious female and then united with the rest of his team. He only knows one of them- Narios. Narios was his best friend back in Metru Nui, but during a voyage with all the others he was separated during a storm.
He has a long journey, with much maturing, both mentally and physically.
Lower legs. Some greebles here and there. I also wanted to make them slimmer. I'm still pretty happy with them.
Upper legs. Sorry for the blurryness.
Full view of the legs.
Name: Akara Gender: Male Species: Matoran Race: Magnetism-Toa Occupation: Toa, Protector, Member of the Toa Kryote (formerly), Leader of the Second Toa Kryote (formerly), Second in Command of the Resistance (formerly), Leader of the Resistance (formerly), Co-Founder of the New Alliance Title(s): Sir, Blinded Idiot, Undying One Element: Magnetism Weapons: Intellegence, Powers, Chain, Sword Kanohi: Arthron-Like mask in the shape of an Avohki Alignment: Chaotic Good MOC Status: EPICLY assembled Bio
Akara, after being captured by Sephiroth in a reconnaissance mission and trapped in a prison for ten years, became weak, frail, and blind. His mask, his armor, and his sight were taken away from interrogation. A chain had been permanently melded to his right arm.
After months of rehabilitation, new armor, and training, Akara claimed the position of the Resistance’s leader. One of the most important turning points of his life would have then happened the next week- The Golden Seige.
Lower legs. Taller by about a stud.
Upper legs. Mostly unchanged.
Left upper arm.
Left lower arm.
Right arm. The chain was moved to be completely wrapped around his arm so it wouldn't get in the way. And so people won't say he'd trip over it >.>
No more poses, sorry.
Name: Akara Gender: Male Species: Matoran Race: Magnetism-Toa Occupation: Toa, Co-Founder of the New Alliance Survivor, On the run from robots, Leader of Rogue Squadron Title(s): Scum, Blinded One, Survivor, Idiot, Wanted By the Order Element: Magnetism Weapons: Tactics, Mind, Powers, Staff, EMP Emitter, Shield, Kanohi: Arthron-Like mask in the shape of an Avohki, Headpiece Alignment: Chaotic Good MOC Status: To Be Re-Assembled
Nearly a thousand years after Sephiroth’s Wrath, Akara, Narios, and several other beings (Not all from the same species) ushered in a new era of peace. They had become the New Alliance, in which each member were to be like an ambassador to their race.
Akara himself didn't want his body to weaken with age. In which, he injected his body with cybernetic implants, highly increasing his body strength. He even had a headpiece attached to his mask and brain, which greatly improved his artificial vision.
In attempt to help maintain peace, they had made an experimental robot, in which they dubbed NAVÉ (New Alliance Vanguard Enforcer). Unfortunately, NAVÉ went berserk seconds after activating, and easily killed half of the beings in the room. After failed attempts to shut him down, it was too late- he escaped.
In less then five months, all of Spherus Magna seemed to be a desolate wasteland, nearly void of life. NAVÉ had successfully unleashed his army of millions of robots on the world. Few lucky ones managed to escape the planet.
Akara, as with most other members of the New Alliance, had been on the run since it had all started. His only companion- a reprogrammed bot. Although, he is still wary of the other robots that have supposedly gone rogue, especially the one with an A.K.A.R.A. suit.
Upper legs. Sadly I didn't really have the right Hero Factory armor pieces I wanted to use. Overall I'm pretty satisfied.
Full view of the legs.
Lower left arm. I really like how I did the EMP emitter.
WAIT. You technicality obsessed scientific people would be thinking "If Akara had cybernetic implants, wouldn't the EMP make his body immoble?" Well, first off, he's grounded (electrically). Second, his armor works as a sort of faraday cage. Both of these factors cause him to be EMP resistant, but not EMP proof. There's always the small chance it all goes wrong and he ends up in a tricky situation.
Right lower arm. Notice the little trans blue square. It's pretty much the power source to his shield.
The transparent circular disks at his thighs are actually removable and throwable. Gives me a sort of TRON feel.
Aiming his EMP emitter.
With his staff and shield activated. I chose a white staff for two reasons. One, I only had the parts to make it in white. Two, it contrasts nicely with his color scheme.
Another staff/shield view.
Yet another staff/shield view!
Custom head. 'Present' Akara has a similar design and 'Past' Akara has a completely different one.
Comparison with an Inika build.
Has Watson sent the message?
Yes sir. It has been delivered.
Fourth Wall- Three years. Time flies doesn't it? Anyways, I feel like I could have done better, if I had the time. I'm most happy with his 'future' form. Thanks for watching everyone! I hope you liked it!
Excellent. Three years of mocing-ness, and you are still going. Kudos to you sir. I really like the future form, definitely my favorite, as I love cybernetic stuff. One of my mocs can also take discs off of his thighs, though I never revealed pictures regarding it.
Quoting Bob the Inconceivably Invincible Your score: 8/10 Great MOC! I think the present form is the best out of all three. The future form seems to blocky and slightly misproprotioned. The past form also seems a bit misproportioned. Also, when I see a pure black MOC I feel like their must be some story to that color, but I see none here. The Present form is brilliant the, the armor and color balance is great. I love the sword!

.....Dang.....I had never seen a self-moc, besides Cossy, that has the best builds ever! :D Everything on the moc is unique, and I literally mean it! Body design and arms have that really complicacated design! Overall, This is probobly going to be the self-moc after Cossy. Your Score: 10/10
HIP HIP HOORAY HIP HIP HOORAY HIP HIP HOORAY who knew someone my age would have been around as long as me (almost) and since my third MOCoversery is coming up in 8 months it's nice to know im not the one who has been around the longest but im probably gonna steel your idea of three Leaith's but i have a homage idea instead but anyway congrats on this huge milestone you have reached and i hope to feel the same feeling you have
Great job, and happy 3 year mocavercery! I really like how these guys turned out overall. But I don't really like how you connected the head on the past version as I feel the neck is too long. Also I don't care much for the thighs on the future version(although the EMP emitter looks awesome),but those are my only complaints, other then that I'm really impressed! 5/5
