Meet Pouks, the Toa Hagah of Stone. Pouks is a member of an elite team of Toa who used to work for the Brotherhood of Makuta. A long time ago, Pouks and his fellow Toa Hagah were transformed into hideous half-beasts by the wicked Vortixx Roodaka. More recently, allied with the Toa Nuva, they found Roodaka and "persuaded" her to turn them back. They have since left on a mysterious mission into the heart of Metru Nui.
Pouks carries a slightly different staff weapon than the rest of the team; instead of a spear, he carries a war hammer. Since the Hagah were given their equipment by slaves of the Brotherhood of Makuta, they decided to carve one of the masks in the shape of a Mask of Shadows. Now that the Hagah and the Brotherhood are enemies, his mask's shape invites quite a bit of teasing from the other Hagah; Iruini in particular likes to rib him about it.
Pouks is quite agile, even for a Toa. He is also deceptively strong, able to wield his hammer with ease and deadly efficiency.
His mask power and Rhotuka power are currently unknown; apparently, he likes to keep them secret.
The bottom picture is the one I originally had up; this was Pouks in progress. I hadn't quite finalized him yet.
I decided to keep him simple. Pouks is the only Hagah in my group who does not have some kind of extra chest covering. I finally decided that he looked good this way, and used the gold chest from Lhikan.
I tried the Knights' Kingdom shoulder plates, but they didn't seem to work too well. I finally decided that the Masks of Light made good shoulders anyway, so there you go.
The hammer tip is black now. I took these pictures before I changed it.
Thank you for your input, those of you who commented.
By the way guys, I have a massive redesign of this guy in the works. The biggest change by far is that now his armor will be silver instead of gold. Also, yes, he will have an actual (avalanche) spear...

Would you post a picture with all the hagah together?
Oh, don't worry about that. I have a massive photoshoot session in my plans anyway; I need new pictures of all of them, because my computer crashed a few months ago and deleted everything. Now all I need is a sunny day, and I live in Oregon....
Moving on to the long awaited conclusion of the Hagah team. Toa Pouks! I like the hammer but as stated he has an Avalanche Spear. I look forward to seeing how you will incorporate the hammer into future mocs. My only real beef with thisw guy is the fact that he is missing the armor that all Toa Hagah wear.
sigh... And I had him perfect, too....
The only unfortunate part, it turns out, about creating MOCs of characters who don't have a lot of information about them... is that when Lego finally does decide to fill us in, they don't match at all. My versions are (I think) way better, but the BS1 ones are canonized. (Aren't they? I think they are.) So I have little choice but to conform if I want mine to be accepted....
The only solution I could think of to solve Pouks' armor crisis would be to use the pieces off of the late-2009/early 2010 Titan Mata Nui set. As that set isn't out yet, I'm not sure if the yellow would clash horribly against the brown (if it does, please disregard this tip!). You could use Mata Nui's two "shoulder spikes" and perhaps a yellow version of Onua's Mistika weapon to form Pouks' specialized shield, the yellow "Metru feet" (used as thigh armor on the set), Mata's yellow shin armor for Pouks' thighs, the foot used on Mata Nui's chest as Pouks' chest covering, the mandibles on the titan's arm fixed together could form a spear head, and Pouks could wear Dekar's yellow mask, or possibly even Mata Nui's!
I think you should keep the shoulderplates. Remember Gaaki's swordtip? try one of those; knight's kingdom has a lot of gold pieces, especially sword(tip)s. Also, if I do recall, Bionicle did come up with a golden toa, but if all else fails, use (if you have a spare) an 'Iruini chestplate'. goodluck!
