About this creation
Well I finally did it, I actually posted another Mata-vamp Update!

This has been put off for FAR too long, so I think it's about time I start getting to it! Without further delay, I present to you POHATU MATA UPDATES!


The Toa of Stone standing as solid as rock!


Here's a close up of the torso. Originally I didn't change a thing on Pohatu, but I felt bad for the guy because he's one of my weaker revamps (the irony). So, I went back and decided to use my more experienced MOCing skills to fix some issues.


I closed up the gigantic gap in his torso with a simple tire on the Glatorian neck. It helps a lot in keeping his hips stable, so he's a lot less floppy now.


I also beefed up the legs. I added the tan Metru chest pieces to his lower legs (in a very shoddy way, I admit, but it works), and I put a tire on his ankle and upper thigh. Sadly, I'm missing another thin tire, so the other leg looks thinner on the thigh. I still wish I knew how I could armor the legs better? Any ideas?


I also beefed up the arms. Again a tire gap fix (I love tires), and I added thicker fingers. Again, I don't have enough fingers so his left hand has the old ones combined to make them look thicker. Also, I need them in black. His upper arms ditched the Nuva shoulder attachment for some Throwbot foot pieces, which I like the think of as the revamped version of the ball pieces on the original's shoulders.


I always found it a beautiful contrast that the Toa of Stone was the fastest of all the Toa!


Yet also the strongest and sturdiest!


Broke out the old rock ball from the original set! And yes, Pohatu went to the Rollout Reviews School of Holding Rocks.


"I always wanted to be a Toa! Just one question...what's a Toa?"

More coming soon! Thanks everyone!

Comment and Enjoy!

If you want to better armor the legs, you could just go full custom.

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 To explain how I propose to fix it: get another two exo-force hands. You know those claw/hand pieces that usually go into exo-force arms on sets? The dual-pronged clip piece. Take those and take the clip side of those and the same end of the exo-force arms, put them together. An 'illegal' connection, I'm sure, but still. Then put the rod bit of the exo-force hands (not the arms, oh the confusement) into the + peg in the Mata hand piece. Of just ignore my feeble explanation attempts. I would not blame you :P
No, no I get you! "Hand hold" the clips part of the hands and arms, then plop them in the axel hole, makes total sense!

Hey! Hafu gets very sensitive about the absence of his real leg! All he wants to be is a real boy! No wait, that's an entirely different story.

Quoting Sir Grim Locksmith VIII Nice, but can he beat Hafu in his berserk armor? The simple touch-ups you added are very effective, though I think better thigh armor is needed. The gray ccbs bone piece is too exposed, breaking up the color scheme in a very ugly manner while looking awkwardly skinny at most angles. Still, the use of seats for the chest is fantastic! Nice work!
Yea, I just wish I had some tan/brown Skrall armor! And, no offense, but Hafu does have a peg leg! :P

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Oh no, no, no! This was a fantastic improvement until I noticed the fingers! Aaaah! Still great, though. But I can't unsee or overlook those blasted fingers :P
What's wrong with the fingers? I mean, they're both horrid on either hand, I just need more black exo force arms! :P

Quoting RaptorTalon (Master of the Core) Awesome! I would not like how much system you used but you used it well so I am fine...
Yea, the system is kind of necessary because of the lack of brown in Bionicle. But thank you for the compliment!
