This is one of my newer Toa, I decided to make him Toa Kumo, of Air and plantlife. He is my idea of a basic Toa in the Bionicle universe and he is just one of my favorite characters to play with.

That's a nice idea; however, it's only Lewa Mata with different arms, hands, and a Hau. Everything else about the set is exactly the same.

I can also be found under the username Azani on SolisMagna.com and the BioMediaProject forums. Check out SolisMagna.com, as it is exactly what we need to maintain interest in Bionicle. Also, I highly recommend [url=http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/11507-bionicle-nova-orbis-new-world/Nova Orbis, an awesome comic series by NickonAquaMagna.

Check out the script for Mysterious Island, an adaption/reboot of the 2001 Bionicle story which I am writing. It's also a musical.

The switching out of the arms and hands for what you've got definitely gives the Toa a unique feel to the Toa Mata, as it's quite noticeable. The green Hau looks nice, I'd never actually seen one used on a figure rather than laid out in a collection of Kanohi. There's really not much else to say about it; like Artakha's Nephew pointed out, it's basically just a slight twist on Lewa and doesn't have anything particularly interesting going on in the build department. Very lovely photographs, though! :D

Giving the guy a pair of hands, as opposed to the original Mata arms which lacked wrists, was definitely a good move. You could try modifying him to make even more articulation possible; that both increase the figure's aility to be posed, and serve to differentiate him from Lewa a bit more.

Thanks for the feedback, I've actually adjusted him since to where he has Tahu's left hand in Lewa's colors, so he has two of those instead of the glatorian hands because the Toa Matas were my favorite from the start
