Toa Takathorax . A MOC of mine which has been neglected for some time, which is not good, considering this is my tertairy self MOC. My solution; A complete and total revamp! . Takathorax (Thorax)
Takathorax, formally Thorax, a Toa of fire, Is a Toa of light, and was one of the founding members of the Toa Racta. He lives a practical life, too absorbed in his duties to make room for friends.
Thorax, a Ta-Matoran living on Racta Magna, was transformed into a Toa by Raxonax, and was invited to become a member of the origional Toa Racta. Thorax became the leader of the Toa Racta, whilst Raxonax moved down to second in command.
They battled Aroxion and the Makuta Sombrak in 'the Days of Shadowed Magna', a short bloody war in which very few know just the full details of it. During this war, Thorax was given a golden Hau by an old traveller. The traveller told Thorax to put on the Kanohi in times of great danger. On the last day of the War, Thorax donned the Kanohi. He became Takathorax, the Toa of Light. He defeated Aroxion and ended the War.
Since the Days of Shadowed Magna, Takathorax left the Toa Racta, to persue his own business.
He returned once to help stop Thanatos from destroying the planet, but then quickly left to wander. At one point, Toa Galia gave him the Elemental Staff of Ice, one of six artifacts which could destroy a Makuta when combined. Upon hearing of a planned invasion on Racta Major by the Sombrak, Takathorax gave the Staff to Toa Korapa and accompanied him back to the city, where he joined the battle with the Sombrak at the gates. He and Korapa battled Makuta Zarliz, who Takathorax accidently killed by deflecting a blast from the Makuta with his Kanohi Hau. After discovering that Aroxion had slipped into the city without being noticed, Takathorax followed and helped "Light Aroxion" to battle the invader. He was severely damaged and almost killed in this battle, but the Toa Racta intervened by entering the city and blasting Aroxion with the Elemental Staffs. Unfortunately, this only seemed to make him more powerful. "Light Aroxion" then suggested using the staffs to charge himself up, and combined with his own powers, charged at Aroxion. This resulted in an explosion which killed both Aroxions and transformed the Toa Racta into Turaga, officially ending the Racta/Sombrak war.
Takathorax is currently still in Racta Major, recovering from the wounds that he recieved in the battle.
An overview of the MOC. The only things that have not been altered from the last version are the shins, and even they have new armour.
The back. You don't need to keep looking, you can move on to the rest of the MOC.
I've been disputing with myself to either have the Hau's face facing forward, or upwards. Maybe you could put your imput. It would be appreciated.
Powerbolt: Hey, you! Gimme my mask back!
...aah...that's much better...
With the Toa Racta, his fomer associates.
Battling it out with Makuta Aroxion, his old foe.
My three Self MOCs, all fresh. On the left; Raxonax, my primary Self MOC. In the middle; Shadonax, my secondary Self MOC. And on the right, Takathorax, my tertairy Self MOC.
That's all on this guy, folks!
Just thought I might add it here, The Guardian of the Gate has gone under some upgrades. He still is my largest MOC. Just a quicky.
