"Fire has no brothers. Fire CONSUMES ALL!"
About this creation
WHAT? ANOTHER TAHU YOU SAY??? Yes, another Tahu indeed!

Well after months of saying I would, I have finally decided to bring you my Matavamp Updates! As usual, we will begin with the Toa of Fire himself, TAHU!


The Spirit of Fire in his fiery glory!


Close up of the torso. I've added in a slope piece so as to streamline the chest and make it look more realistic. Also, the black hand connectors on the sides are now red.


The back is still the same.


Better legs! I replaced the upper leg pieces with red CCBS bones instead of black. Also, some Matoro armor in orange in his lower legs, gives them some nice bulk.


I moved the front CCBS shell to the back, I just wish I could do the same with the upper legs.


Better arms. Still the same, just added to. I've added another orange hand so that there's more bulk and orange. I've also added a tire onto the wrist to bulk that up too, and it looks a lot better.


A small thing, but there's also a bushing on his neck to blend into the head and hide the axel.


Obligatory Ghar size comparison.


Or maybe something a little closer to home, Tahu Master of Fire.


A dramatic pose.


Also, here's new idea I have and would like to implement into all my Mata: hands in the two finger style. I'm on the fence, I think it looks better, but I want you guys' opinion.


Obviously, the fingers themselves would be black, and the studs that connect them to the hand would be the same color as the Toa. And, if it looks better, I can use a 1x2 plate instead of a 2x2, but I feel the 2x2 looks more like the old Technic hand piece.


Just holding it up.


OBJECTION! (:P)


"Time and experience had made him less a warrior and more a leader of Toa."

More Toa Updates coming soon!

Comment and Enjoy!

Aww it's cute! Great work Gabe! The torso looks epic and so do the legs! Maybe make the upper arms thinner to match the lower half. The two-fingered mata hand looks really nice (I love it when people make those)!

This is a good MOC though I have many complaints, first the torso is too short to pull of the style your going for, the Mahri armor on the legs is an absolute no unless it's bulky, the arms are really really poor, but the hand yes keep it but may I suggest pulling a Matoran CallanLoF (look up a how to on YT.) hand out and putting it there.

So yea, yes or no on the hands? I think it makes him look more custom, and hands are way better than boring old connectors.
