The challenge was to revamp a bionicle set using a set of 1978 colors.
Sorry for the blurry pics; my camera seems out of wack today.
Preparing to fire his rhotukha spinner!
I have to say, this was a toughie. I was thoroughly stumped, because I didn't have any mask of a different color than how it came in the original set. The build actually started out as an Antroz revamp, but the colors weren't very different from the original. So, I thought of making a hordika revamp out of the beastly form I made. And, I love the combination of brown and mata red. I based this off the movie version with the prosthetic like arm. I checked this bad boy thoroughly, and he has all regulation colors. Comments and criticism are appreciated, as always.
This is a decent revamp with a solid build and good colour swap, however, with the brown mask, the whole thing is thrown off. While brown did exist in the the late 70s/early 80s, that particular shade of brown did not. As such, Hordika Onewa was probably not the best choice. 8 points

The build is cleanly done, but a bit skinny, and I'm not a fan of double-jointed legs. Also, the brown color detracts a bit from your score. Total of 4 points from me.
I like it

An overall crazy and daring revamp. Mainly because who ever chooses Onewa Hordika.
That said the torso could be filled in a bit more filled in, legs are pretty interesting, And brown is not a 1978 color.
I'll give you a 6.
