Tahu Toa of Fire (V2)
Having rushed to upload the last Tahu, and then getting critique on the old one, I felt a version 2 was in order.
About this creation
Tahu Toa of Fire:



Here's the new version, problems solved? You decide!



Added a bigger flame sword, simply because he's about double the originals size.



I've kept the black areas on him, to reflect the original.



Back has a gear, (that does nothing) to reflect the original.



The feets.



Back of the legs, little view at the changes to the upper leg.



Legs.



Less long torso.



New waist too.



Better look at the gear.



Not sure if I'll redo the 2015 Toa Mata, I'll obviously be using their pieces in MOC's though.



I was actually kinda surprised I had enough orange for Tahu, totally underestimated how much I'd need.



I also kept the original hand, which I'll probably to the same for the others.



Back of the head has changed, simply because the Rahkshi head there was odd.



TAHU!



Edits in the Main picture and the attacking shot are by Instant Noodles, total babe.



Noodles is bae.



Legs.



New arm.



Tahu!



YEAH!



Deep in thought Tahu.



Trying to copy one of Tahu's original poses, from early art shots.



HIYA!



Look at those guns!



Ready for action.



Custom head uses a mold test Jumper plate.



Feel the heat!



But Hau!

Red never looked better.

With Cossy

Fourth Wall Commentary:
So like I said above, not too happy with the last version, so I followed the critique I receive on the first version and build this. I'm happy with Version 2, I've fixed the short leg issue, and I feel he no longer looks like he has a beer belly. Anyway like I said in the last post, I want to revamp all the Toa Mata, so probably expect Lewa next


Also:



Cossy's wings have changed. Took the flames out simply because they were to fragile. I like this new design it will stay.



Also behold Mini-Cossy! ... Mossy? Missy? Minissy? Nah just Mini-Cossy

A little too much bulk, other than that it's neat.

I feel that Tahus' right arm should be a fixed arm instead of what it is now, thats if you are going for a complete recreation of the original set, otherwise, I really like what you have here, espsecialy the lower legs, over all a great moc of our great toa leader.

Great moc! i love it, although what Andrew31kbrick193 said makes a good point. Also i think it might look a bit better if you expanded the upper chest so he looks more muscular.

Although the right arm of this design strikes me more as a flamethrower than a sword wielding arm, I think this is a great revamp of Tahu.

Mini-cossy is great! But could use some wings. Many use some raven wings from chima?

Ah, the Toa Mata. The first set of toas that got everyone interested in Bionicle in the first place. This is a awesome moc! :)

um might want to get the breast(the red hf armor parts and ball joins) forward or the middle part(the armor used for takea shark, u know) replace it with the thinner armor cos' it doesn't look really balanced

TAAAAHHHHUUUUU I love it. Simply adore how well you've fixed him up, MUCH better. I do think, however, that the two CCBS armor pieces on his chest should be extended foreward more, to give him a more muscle-cheated feel. That's about it. Bravo!

Definitely an improvement! I totally want to know where you got that mini cossy head.

  November 11, 2014
He looks so much better now, I can really tell! Head looks a lot better without the rahkshi head on the back, and the waist and torso look better. My only critique is to move the chest out some more so that it's flush with the stinger piece on the middle of his body, but other than that this is great! Nice improvement, LoBF! (And miny-Cossy is great!)

Thanks guys, glad you like Mini-Cossy too

Awesome. I love that shot of him next to optimus. BTW, the the gear system work, or is that just for decoration?
  November 10, 2014
Much better awesome work Cossy. And mini Cossy is sweet.

Better, but still not a fan of the arms. They look too long.

I'm drooling this looks great. Only problem is the body is a bit too... er... long. Bravo anyway!

Alright. This is MUCH better, but I do feel the facts that his torso remains quite blocky (and by this a bit disconnecting from the rest of him considering his limbs are so faithful to the original) and it's lack of articulation really hinders the poses you can get him in.

  November 10, 2014
Thanks you two, Do see what you mean Evan, I'm pretty happy with the arms though, but you are right.

This version looks good. Glad you took the Rahkshi head off the back of the head and added a gear too. Still think the lower arms are a bit too bulky but otherwise love it!

Wow! Look! There is a way to use HF pieces and build something that looks good! Brilliant job Cossy!

I've always been a big fan of the original guys and this is an epic rendition. Loving the orange and elements like the gear and black parts, overall fantastic job like always!
