The Toa Metru of Light.
About this creation
Takanuva has received an upgrade. This creation was really fun to build. Most of the Toa Nuva's masks actually look pretty ugly on Toa Metru heads because they're so short. The thing that makes the Avohkii work so well is the fact that the prongs extend so far back over the top.
If you have any inclination at all to build a Takametru of your own, I have one tip for you: go and buy yourself a Barraki Pridak. Now. That's where I got the four white double-ended ball joints.

   See what I mean? His action poses don't seem very actionly. And his staff's too short.

   Introducing TAKAMETRU!! The extra joints do a nice job at making his stance seem more natural.

Neat, easy, and very poseable moc. I'm glad you kept a more simple design for Takanuva. The suggestions I have would be to swap the head/eye color for the original Takanuva's white and yellow colors (just add a ball joint plugged in with a two-length to the back of the head). You might also want to consider using Thok's legs and perhaps exchange the spear point for a silver Pridak blade (available in the Hydraxon set and likely others). That may make the spear look to bulky, but it might be an improvement.

This is awesome. Still, I think it could be more nuva looking. make him have his lower nuva arms and a dd the origanal armor, and also use the old nuva feet. It is awesome the way it is though. If u get a chance, I want to see what he would look like with those customizations.

Three words- I love it! Simple, yet perfect- it sets a new sense of class to Takanuva, who has always been my favorite toa. Well done!

dude, real good job, but mine(not posted) uses the original breastplate attached with a piece in between. all mine lacks are the pridack (pridak?) additions.

Very cool, nice idea. I like your practical view on things, "he's not poseable enough, Ill make a new one!" Nice job! Im just not giving 5/5 because its not totally your idea. Awesome!
