About this creation
Pohtor was a Po-Matoran who lived in Metru Nui. He was good friends with Shanra and Skorcol. He was a carver, making weapons and other tools. This was made easier by the Pakari, a Great Mask of Strength, which Skorcol had made for him, as it let him carry boulders that were much bigger than he was.

One day, when Pohtor was looking for a good boulder to use for his carving, he encountered a Kane-Ra. While normally peaceful, this Kane-Ra suddenly attacked Pohtor. It charged at him, but Pohtor managed to avoid it. However, the beast hit a stone wall, causing an avalanche. Both Pohtor and the Kane-Ra were buried under tons of rock and dirt. Pohtor was found days later by an unknown Toa of Psionics, who could hear his mental screams of anguish. He was somehow brought to the Order of Mata Nui, where they tried to save him. He was put through an experimental process, designed to increase strength and resistance. The process worked, but it had side effects.

While his body grew much larger, increasing both his strength and endurance tremendously, Pohtor's face transformed into that of a beast, making him unable to wear a Kanohi. However, his Pakari fused to his back, increasing his strength even further. His left hand became a large pincer, and small tentacles and a tail grew from his back, which grew larger over time.

During the transformation, his lungs also transformed into gills, which would've killed him if the Order hadn't been so alert. They quickly installed a water tank and attached it near his gills, through his Pakari, allowing him to breathe on land as well.

When he awoke, Pohtor was horrified, but thankful that he was still alive. After some testing, it was discovered that he was now stronger than 10 Toa using Pakaris and could withstand tremendous force and medium-strength Elemental attacks without flinching. He was accepted into the Order and provided with a large maul. The Order often sent him on missions that involved water, as he is able to breathe in it.

At one point, he was ordered to assist Toa Elerinn, who was spying on Okuta. He and Toa Airik were teleported to an area near Okuta's base. After getting closer, they saw that Elerinn had just been caught by Okuta. They barged in and managed to save her, though this was mostly because of the surprise factor.

Many years later, after the Order of Mata Nui had formed an alliance with the Dark Hunters, Pohtor was ordered to 'join' the Dark Hunters in order to keep an eye on them. Here, he obtained the codename 'Colossus'.

Pohtor is currently involved in an effort to stop Okuta once and for all.

Pohtor's giant maul is made of solid protosteel and is heavy enough to crush a Toa with its sheer weight. He, however, is able to wield it with ease due to his enormous physical strength. The maul also has a powerful pump and folding fins, allowing it to be used as a mode of transportation while underwater. Pohtor, however, is much too heavy for this to be effective, so he uses the pump as a weapon, blasting his target with water currents of tremendous pressure.

Here's a link to the previous version.

'Colossus' wasn't really colossal yet.
My tallest biggest MOC to date. His legs were based on Onumar's and his torso has the same skeleton as Sakraaht's.
I was never satisfied with the previous two versions, as they were significantly less posable, especially with regards to their legs. This version fixes that, as well as the relatively small size of the previous versions. The name didn't fit them very well.
I'm not too happy about the arms, but I've never been good at those. Other than that, though, I feel like this version is much better than any previous one.

EDIT (January 25, 2016): No changes to the MOC, but better pictures added.

Comments are welcome.

A very nice design! I find myself in agreement with Yuri, this moc is quite underrated.

Brutal shoulders design. Very powerful. Really a better use of Poe's pieces than Lego did.
