A Lewa Moc, and in a Lewa pose! I always wanted to revamp Lewa mata in a modern toa size, but I didn't have enough lime green to do so. I relaized that I could just redo the original. And so I did. My Lewa even stands at the same exact heigh as the original when his legs are straight. Also check out the edit I did for this guy on my Flickr!
About this creation
FRont vIeW. Toa Mata of Air brandishing his one handed axe.
You can see I added the gears in for nostalgia factor, albeit they don't match exactly to the set. Did I mention this moc is super posable too? He has 19 points of articulation! For comparison the set has only 9!
Here's another Lewa-esque pose. You'll see I used technic, CCBS, and system on this moc, and I think it flows well, while maintaining the original's aesthetic.
Size comparison to the set! The moc's knees are bent making him look a little shorter, but when fully erect( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)he is identical in height. XD My version's shoulders are a little bulkier, but I'm ok with that.
You still paying attention? I said I would post this so here is Runk's back mod, I took out the "wing" things because they weren't a secure connection.
A final neato pic of Lewa. It's a similar pose to the one that can be found on old promotional artwork.
Thanks for viewing guys! I hope you enjoyed. This was a very fun moc to build. I also bet that If I swapped a couple pieces I could get a Nuva version from this. Anyways, see you next moc. It'll be the original character btw.
This looks so good! Lewa and Kopaka are my two favourite toa so maybe in the future i'll do my own revamp! My only quam with this is the width of the shoulders but honestly it is the best thing you could have don in that case :/ Anyways, the moc looks great and I love the style!
