Tahu Toa of Fire
Start of a new Project, where I plan to build each member of the Toa Mata, how I wish. Enjoy!
About this creation











































































Fourth Wall Commentary:
So yes, new project. I wanna take a small break from Storyline MOC's and build the Toa Mata. I've wanted to do this for a while and am more then happy to now. So, yes I'll be building the other 5 Toa Mata, and maybe Takanuva. Each will be built very similar to the originals, but with what ever changes I wish to add. Anyway hope you like it :)


Couple final things:
I have a Flickr now, take a look if you wish:

Till Next Time
See Ya~

Quite an interesting creation. I love the way you've kept the exact colour scheme of the original and reused many of the same parts, such as the ball joint heartlight on the chest and the technic mata hand on his left arm. However, I feel as if there's a bit of a scale problem going on here, with the torso looking very elongated and the mata hand and feet looking a bit small for a model nearly twice the size of the original. Obviously it's a complex build and I applaud you for that, but I just don't think you got the feel of Tahu right.

Something I didn't mention in my earlier comment is the head. I really like how you integrated the Rahkshi face there.

Quoting Wondering Person Hey nice new MOC. Quck question: Mah bro wants ta know if he can use yer images. He will give credit.
Why is he using them?

Actually, come to think of it, the legs are actually too short. If they were longer, it might even fix the poseability issue in the knees. ;) Bravo!

I only have two complaints: 1. The torso seems to be a bit long. Not a huge thing, but it's slightly unsettling to me. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but I think it would look better if it were slightly shorter. 2. Legs don't seem to have much aticulation. They look fantastic, but remember that articulation is ALWAYS important! (including the torso) ;)

Any instructions for that Hau pixel art? I usually do my PA with 3D layering too. Go figure...

I tend to agree with Evan, there are elements of the torso that look kinda strange. The rahkshi mask as waste armor and as the back of the head, positioning the Nui-Jaga stinger upside-down on the stomach, and the way the orange armor on the armor overlaps the black shoulders look kinda off. The overall look is pretty good from far away, but other angles he looks tubby and you see that his arms are much beefier than his legs. Not bad, but I hope the other Toa end up looking better.

That's pretty good! I love how you kept it classic and had him have a Tiberis like arm. However I really dislike that red Mata rahkshii head, it kinda makes his head look weird. 5/5 though! B: You give everyone a 5/5! Me: No! Remember I gave that guys a 4/5 once! B: Yeah the one time!

The body is too tall, he looks like he has a incomplete beergut but thats just me.....cuz im WerIed

It's a good idea but I feel as if it isn't executed properly. The torso is very blocky and the lower arms are odd. I've always seen large lower arms and skinny upper arms as more befitting of a Fe-MOC.

Awesome re-make Cossy! P.s. your self moc is up.

I feel like a lot of people take inspiration from Callan's revamps!
  November 2, 2014
It looks like you revamped Callan's revamp.

Thanks guys. Totally gonna work on a version 2, all the things everyone's talked about make me wanna rework him, so do expect that soon :)

Really awesome! I love how you kept details like the gear on his back and the two fingered hand. My recommendation is to make the other mata with longer legs.

Looks really cool, certainly more bulked up than my current one! I agree with pretty much everyone else, the torso is kinda long, but I think if the legs were just a bit longer that would help as well. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Rahkshi heads on the back of a MOC's head, mostly because if they are wearing a mask it should look like they are wearing one and not that it wraps all the way around the head. Other than that, this is excellent, excellent, excellent, as usual! Well done!

That torso really isn't working for me. It seems rather long and messy, and the stomach is strange. I would suggest revising. The arms and legs look great, though. I like what you did with the head as well.

Nice! I like most of him, but he does seem a little pudgy at the bottom of the torso. But really cool overall! :)

He looks brilliant, except that the torso leaves a bit to be desired. Too long. Could use articulation, if it doesn't have any.

Awesome job! Loving the colour distribution, reminds me of the original. That forearm design is also really cool! If I was to say anything, though, I think that his torso looks a little too long from the photos, but other than that, awesome recreation! Can't wait for the others :D

Thanks guys, yeah I'm not sure on the tubby-ness and the rahkshi head at the back, I'll see if others agree and possibly change things depending :)

Sweet build, but he looks a little pudgy. I guess Tahu's put on some weight during the hiatus xD
