I like the technique of using the limb pieces to form the sides of the torso. I can never come up with a design myself that I find satisfying, but yours is decent.

I am personally reminded much more of Whenua than of Onua, which is probably because of the Kanohi and the use of his drills in the weapon.

My experience with graffiti was critical to my success in creating an army of murderous seagulls.

Interesting design. The drill looks pretty neat, wondered how you did that. Torso design looks nice as well, but what is the piece covering the bottom half or whatever it is?

I suggest you talk to an admin about that. I think they're the only ones that can rename topics from my understanding.

The base of his thumper/drill thing is a metru torso, and the lower piece, if that's what you're referring to, is a loosely attached 4609763.

THIS is awesome just one thing though. I feel that the upper arms are a bit lackluster and need to be a bit beefier. Because when I generally think of a toa of earth I think of a very bulky toa with a very bulky build. Mostly in the upper body. Other wise this is really nice dude :)

I feel the torso is too rectangular - it doesn't taper in a vague "v" as most torsos do.
