"Toa" of Energy & the Staff of Sustenance

 

Before they put their faith in the legends of Mata Nui, many Matoran idolized this Toa. He - or it - was said to have descended from the twin suns, but no one can truly remember where the figure first appeared. It was later discovered that the sage had a dark secret: he was Makuta. Only after wreaking havoc and confusion were its heroic deeds revealed for what they truly were: an evil plot...

For the figure itself: it has a poseable waist, which is also capable of rotating a full 360 degrees, due to a ball joint connection. Also, the "living" Staff also serves as a nifty launcher (which can be detached).

 

I​ went with a predominantly 2001 Technic feel, but tried to also incorporate elements from each year between 01-10.

 

Thanks for viewing!

Not very fond of the head or the arms, but the customization and bending torso is nice. I am fond of the spikes on his head, that is a very neat touch.
