  1. NOTE: I know that I post it here far late, and I know that I have uploaded pics to flickr and submitted to BZPower group in flickr long ago. This is not the most sensible way to do it, post it here late. The reason why I haven't post it here for 3-1 week(s) is that I have been drained and have been busy at college. Most of a time I have time to upload the images to flickr and dA, uploading video takes some time, but posting to the forums takes a lot of time, so my apologies for that. I'm posting now rest of my revamped Toa Okoto, that being, Lewa, Onua and Tahu. I know this may be spamming, but I want post them so that I have my own time to do something else than sitting here and writing stuff. Hello people! I'm very sorry that this came far late. Originally I wanted to post it her a week ago, but turned out that I have been tired and the college also. Well, anyways, I'm going to show you ladies and gentlemen, last but not least, The Leader of Toa Okoto himself, Tahu, Master of Fire (2.0 version)! More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157651207928040/ Video review: Okay, so obviously, he's radically different than the pre-redesign version of him. Mainly the upper torso area is dramatically different, There are no more smoke stacks (god I miss them), the reason why I removed them, because I wanted originally to keep smoke stacks, angled approximately 45-50 degree angle. But it turned out into impossible challenge due to the new torso look. There are only three pieces that are painted in red, 3-armor part and two beast feet in red color. Yes I know that it is kinda cheating, but honestly it was the cheapest way to do it. I could order 3-armor part in red from bricklink, but I have no experience about it. I know that those red beast feet are available one of the chima sets, something like a bird flying plane thingy (yeah I can't remember the name of it because I'm lazy to search the name for it), unfortunately it is kinda expensive set, and allow me to explain. I live in Scandinavia country, in Finland, so let's compare here that set costs $20 and that is in euro ~18.50€. How about oppositely, here, it costs 25€ and it converts into about $27, $7 expensive here! Now, in a conclusion, I'm pretty happy that I revamped Tahu from pre-redesign into much better looking Toa. The whole point was to give more leader-ish personality and look, the previous version was okay, but it wasn't leader-ish enough. Well, I'll soon post protectors, but they just have just a minor revamp, two of them has revamped torso while the rest of them has revamped weapons. But, that's about it!

And you guess it what I'm going to show ya, here we have, The Sleepy Giant itself, Onua, Master of Earth (2.0 version)! More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157649173800084/ Video review: So, how should I say about sleepy philosopher hulk here? Well, obviously, he has a lot of details on everywhere. He's a bit bulkier, especially the trapezius area are a bit bulkier than previous version of my revamped Onua. Well, there are no tools and weapons also. I removed quake breakers, pickaxe, club (weapon type), and those claws also. Now it has a hammer, an EARTHQUAKE HAMMER! Good Mata Nui, good thing is that I have built it quickly so it didn't take like IT'S OVER 9 000(!) minutes, hours, days or years! Obviously, I'm really happy that this is much better than the pre-redesign version of Onua. I have seen some people revamping their Onua into silver or gold, and I mean the armor add-on parts, those new vahki armor parts. Honestly, they're not bad, but I found out that they're a bit boring in my taste. I think with gold and silver makes Onua so catchy looking Toa. Overall, I'm happy that I didn't have to build the torso build this year, that would be pain in a butt.

My apologies for my lateness, I have been busy, yet again. But now, shall I introduce to you ladies and gentlemen, The Daredevil itself, Lewa, Master of Air ... I mean Master of Weed (Smoke weed everyday)... D'oh! I mean Lewa, Master of Jungle (2.0 version), finally the correct term! More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157651512729095/ Video review: So, here we have him in his revamped form. Now obviously, I removed from previous version of Lewa. I removed jungle leaves and other plants, mushroom also, because it didn't catch 2015 Lewa look. Also I changed the feet design, the previous version of Lewa had "high heels", which was too inappropriate. also the loin cloth, dear Mata Nui, it was too inappropriate and people said some PINGAS jokes. So I decided to remove it. Also I painted those #3 armor parts and the stomach area into green, but it''s a bit darker comparing to the lighter green color. In an end result, this Lewa is much better than pre-redesign version of himself. Mainly it was far from 2015 Lewa version, so the idea was to keep the original look. But I'm still happy that I change the look of it.
  4. Hello people! I originally wanted to write this after that I have written Gali's topic, but then I was TOOOOO lazy. But, ladies and gentlemen, Kopaka, Master of Ice (2.0 version)! More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157648995333 Video review: Okay, so obviously this might be my number one of Toa Okoto team in his revamped formm. I don't know, I just like this! >w< Okay I'm very sorry for bragging, but let's face it, I didn't expect how good looking he is in his new form (and I meant the original version of Kopaka 2015). But at first, I wasn't sure about his bulky look, but when I built him, it grew me up that I instantly fell in love his new design. But enough for that, so let's talk about the previous version of it. I was originally keeping him in "slender" type Toa, but hi was kinda out of the look of it, because the legs weren't that bulky. The spear was originally too wide due to the ice effect on the top of the spear. But other than that, I'm happy how it turned out ^ ^ Extra: Pohatu: " Hey Kopaka! Nice to meet ya! How's the day?" Kopaka: " Ugh. First a headeche and now you!? Leave me alone." Pohatu: " Say what's that drink anyways?" Kopaka: " It's none of your business."
  5. Thanks! More will come soon! Thank you very much! Thanks! And well, nothing too special there, just a track cycling race there Thank you very much! The anchor is probably my favorite weapon of her
  6. Hello people! I do wanna apologize that I didn't post it here last week. The reason, I have been travelling to St. Petersburg city, and there was a "race" for my team and the other two teams. Okay enough for that, let's talk about Gali here, she is fascinating Toa, and I really love the look of Gali. But, shall I introduce for you, Gali, Master of Water (2.0 version)! More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157648958361383/ Video review: As always, I mentioned my opinion about her original form of it in small synopsis form, so I kinda reviewed her, but also explaining my personal opinion about her 2.0 version. But as you can see, comparing 2.0 version with pre-redesign version, she is dramatically different, especially the upper torso area, it was pain in a butt. Like, I revamped her upper torso three or four times before I got it some what better looking. Either I did it better or worse. The pre-redesign of her was "too" manly looking Gali, now that I see it in person, because of those bulkiness and those stuff. I didn't bother to build feminine torso design for her, and yes, I could have added some nuva breasts, but they're already overused. And the other reason why I did that, because I wanted to keep that printed chest part, I think that is cool looking and it gives a personality for Gali, and maybe it is necessary because it is good to match with the other Toa Okoto members. And the other thing what I want to say about Gali's design, yes, she has some bulkiness, but not bad looking comparing with her previous form. The thing is that that I have seen female characters, who were almost like in smaller role from RPG games and from the other genre type games. What I mean by that is that they were, either in healer role, or something else. But there are some cases that some of those video games, the female character is muscular, like Samus Aran in her power suit (well, maybe it was bad example, but giving a point also about Gali, why she's bulky). Secondly, this is Bionicle, and there are some cases that not every female character has feminine look or shape. The best example is Roodaka, she has female look and shape of it. While the Toa of Water (and lighting and psionics Toa, and light and shadow Toa) characters, doesn't appear with feminine look. Sure in fan fictions (or some of them) female characters have a female body look. All in all, she was kinda the hardest Toa to revamp, especially due to feminine elements. Yes, she might be bulky, but I don't mind it that much. I'm pretty happy to revamp her with new parts. But that's about it ^ ^
  7. I said in description that those vahki legs are painted:P
  8. Hello people! MrBT here again, and where I have been last two months? I have been busy recently, because of my college, so that's why I haven't been active here. You may remember that I showed to you my revamped Toa Okoto team? Well, I'm going to show you, Pohatu, Master of Stone 2.0 version aka revamped Pohatu I should say that way More pics: https://www.flickr.com/photos/114946327@N08/sets/72157650661224790/ Video review: NOTE: I kinda did video review of it, but it is in a small synopsis. The reason why I did this way, because there are already many of those 2015 Bionicle set reviews, so it is kinda a waste of time to revisit those pros, neutrals and cons. Well, here it is! Obviously I just swapped those new parts to replace those older parts. And yes, you may see some custom parts, especially those lower vahki legs, which they are painted in silver, in order to match the original version of 2015 Pohatu's look. And there are modificated axle parts and lightsaber sixed bar parts (which they're visible in his thigh armors. Luckily, I found some of these old technic parts, which they're in same color as Pohatu's new brown (or more likely Huki or Hewkii color), and those Huki colored Bohrok eye parts, giving a little color matching to Pohatu's color scheme. All in all, there isn't so big differences than my Pre-redesign version of Pohatu, The whole point was to change some old parts into new parts. But that's about it
  9. This is truly very nice looking "Ice elemented" dragon, I really love the overall color scheme! And I couldn't have done this kinda leveled ccbs build, it's really over all really fascinating design!
  10. Neat Tarakava revamp! I really love the reimagination of this rahi, the shape looks really good, much more sleeker design and that tail of it makes more believable water rahi, while that MNOG animations Tarakava came out from water but how? If I were you, I would add something like a actual hand or boxing glove type arm to arm area, I feel like it is empty that hand area. But still, great revamp you have done!
  11. Yup! And most other ninja inspirations like Zoro from One Piece, Zero from Borderlands 2, Deadpool (kinda, because those Volt SMGs:P) and the inspiration came from Speeda Demon character:3
  12. Hello everyone! Today I'm showing my self MOC, which is very first time that this my MOC appears to internet! Introducing, Toa Boltrax, Toa of Lighting! As you're going to see, he is Toa of Lighting, well, the colors are incorrect, I know that the colors should have been blue and white. And he is male in alternate universe. I also did a bio for him Name: Boltrax Gender: Male Element: Lighting Weapon(s)/Tool(s): Lighting Katana, 2x Volt SMGs (Before)/Spinable Tetra Machine, 4x Lighting Katanas, 2x Volt SMGs, 2x Shock Mines (After) Mask: Kanohi Ilikari, Mask of Impacts Group: Iron Saber Resistance Team (ISRT) Status: Alive Occupation: Guardian (Vo-Matoran), Toa Species: Vo-Matoran Location: Metru Nui (Toa Empire Alternate Universe) Title: The Flash, Toa of Lighting MOC status: Assembled Biography: Boltrax was once a guardian, now he is known as a Toa of Lighting. During in his universe, there was a civil war, a war against a group of peripheral Vo-Matoran and Toa who didn't accept any other Matoran to come there. During at civil war, Boltrax became a Toa at the last moments of his people dying in war. Boltrax carried Lighting Katana and two Volt SMGs for a combat. Seeing a battle for the first time, he released that killing is terrifying, but there were none of the other choices than fight against them. At one battle, the wormhole appeared from nowhere and sucked him to another alternate dimension called Dark Mirror. When he fell from the sky from the wormhole, damaging his spine caused almost a death for him. Fortunately three mysterious figures appeared and took him to their hideout, far from the core of Metru Nui. Boltrax was repaired, but they implanted their own engine to his back. He is their possible warrior to fight and end empire madness. Boltrax is one of the members of Iron Saber Resistance Team. Personality: "It doesn't matter what or how you're making mistakes, we can always learn from the mistakes. And most important, anything is possible if you believe yourself." -Toa Boltrax Boltrax is silence most of a time, but sometimes he is talkative person when asking from him something. Most of a time he works with the others but sometimes he works alone when he feels it. Boltrax's most comfortable friends are Alarha and Olarokh, but not so cooperative with Hre'zrak and Vahlrog. Powers & Weapon(s)/Tool(s) Boltrax used in civil war two Volt SMGs and one Lighting Katana. After the event where he flew from wormhole and fell from the sky. Causing a serious damages to his spine, ISRT members repaired him and implanted a Spinable Tetra Machine to his back. Boltrax wields three extra workable Lighting Katanas swords and Shock mines. He can absorb, control and even create lighting. He can also perform "Thunder Run" when he absorbs enough lighting, he can use absorbed lighting for supernatural run. Strength: 14/20 Agility: 16.5/20 Endurance: 15/20 Intelligence: 14/20 More pics: www.flickr.com/photos/11494632… Video review: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehrrk1…
  13. Thanks a lot! Thank you very much! I understand that he lacks some purple colors, well especially in torso area. Fortunately I will use that new 2015 Onua's xl chest part's stickers to make it better.
  14. Thanks a lot! About Lewa's jungle leaves and vines, there is an option which is just removing those leaves, making him a little better, but I forgot to showed that. Also Kopaka's design, don't give me wrong, I really like 2015 version of Kopaka, but I really prefer him to being a slender type Toa, because he is cold and noble, and that immediately gives me an idea about Kopaka's design. But those Inika armor parts are kinda a replacement of those new armor parts to Kopaka's lower legs. Right now, I have to wait those new Bionicle sets so that they arrive here in Finland, because the shipments takes quite long time, but I'm pretty sure that they arrive soon. Thanks! The idea for these new Toas was totally make them as different as possible, we have seen a lot of "clone" sets back in 2001-2006. Sure after 2006, Toas and the enemies were much different compairing to each other (expect kinda Phantoka Makutas, they were kinda different, because the torso were same, but the limbs were not). To me, my favourite of myToa Okoto team is especially Pohatu, because of those pipes and pistons and those coolerturbines.
  15. Thanks a lot! I learned most of it from syoya who is from flickr. About instructions, you're not the only one who asks these instructions, a few people from YouTube asked instructions and if I remember correctly, also people from flickr and dA asked the instructions. But I'm not sure about, but I can make a standard form of it (so that the upper torso area doesn't have any bulk on them). The reason why I'm going to make an instructions in future, because I really don't like to see too many people using my idea, not in a bad way, but I really want to see the other people's idea to make their custom torso:) And about releasing the instructions, well, I'm planning to create a video tutorial of it in Spring, because right now, I'm sure that the MOCers can create their own custom torso. But that's just me.
