Holy ###### Exo Toa advancedChro you never cease to amaze me with your mocsThe only thing that really throws me off is the Toa's legs are kinda exposed on the sides. Although I guess there isn't much you can do about that huh? Does the Chest open to allow the Toa to enter and exit?Still this is an amazing moc man. I hope to be on your level one day.

"There was no way that was an ordinary Toa, no Toa moved like that. No Toa fought so relentlessly. This hooded thing had single handedly killed hundreds of his Rahkshi brothers. No that was no Toa.... he was a Reaper, Death himself.... Wielding a Sniper Scythe."

Hmm ... it's quite brilliant actually, but the upper body seems extremely bulky compared to the legs.

 

Can they hold the weight?

Thanks E2.

The exposed leg problem is something I should've thought of beforehand, you're right. And yes, the whole suit opens up to allow the pilot to enter and exit. (I explained why I took no photos of that process near the bottom of the MOCpages post.)

Quite well, in fact.

Hm.

 

Is it difficult for the suit to stand, or is it pretty simple?

 

And how does Astray slot in? Do you need to do lots of fiddly things?

It was easy for it to stand, and slightly less so for it to balance in really dynamic poses.

Astrav fits in quite easily as well. His legs simply sit on the leg frame and the armor folds over them. The arms attach in a similar manner. The torso fits snugly inside the torso and the top section folds down over him, with an axle that slides into his back to keep him attached.

Holy.

 

One's just gotta love Exo-suits. Love the way nothing looks out of place. And like the contrast with Astrav's colors.

:OMG: This is incredible! The color scheme is consistent, and provides much armoring for Astrav. The canon on the arm is pretty cool too.

As usual, Chro, this MOC is spectacular!  That's why I'm glad you're on the staff for SM.com.  :D Retaining functionality in a MOC this complicated is quite the feat, and I love exo suits. it looks like movement is a bit restricted however. How's the articulation of it?

Thanks all.

The articulation was pretty good except for the legs, which could bend alright, but didn't support weight well due to the way they connected to the legs.

Duuuude. What is this I don't even. It's like someone took the Exo-Toa, and made it better in, like, every possible way. I love how there's so many little details and parts, it makes it look very mechanical, definitely like it was built. I'm thoroughly impressed, I need to check out more of your creations!

Nah... but thank you for the complement. :)

Thanks Jink. There was certainly some inspiration from the Exo-Toa, off of a suggestion by Taipu1.

If you want to see more of my MOCs, check the links in my signature. :D
