Here is my entry for the Rebrick Makuta Contest. http://www.lego.com/en-us/rebrick/view-entry?c_id={00A66255-0F67-490B-97E3-3FCD9CF12314}&a_id=050c1743-4a67-48af-bd32-addd11c0523e&nse=true

I already have all the g2 sets, so I am doing this for my brother.

 

Images found in spoiler tag.  (warning, there are quite a few)

 

Decided to have some fun adding affects to this picture.

I'd like to see more pictures, particularly of that... it's a hammer, right? What I see of the probably-hammer so far, I like, but I'd like to see it from other angles. 

 

That aside, the blue and gold work together better than I would have expected. Kinda mourning the unavailability of gold capes, actually. A gold cape would have been nice. Overall I like the shape of the build as well, but - and this might just be the angle - the feet look a bit too big, proportionately. The ankle configuration is pretty sweet though, and if those big feet are the price of that, then it's a price worth paying.

Well, if Rebrick is looking for an entry that most closely resembles Journey to One Makuta, you definitely win.


Voicing your opinions with tact is the best way to keep a discussion from becoming an argument.
So far as I'm aware, it's pronounced like this: We're ee ah moo.

Yes your right, it is a hammer.  More photos have been added.

 

It is actually purple but it probably looks blue because of the flash on my camera.  His feet are big and so are his hands; the feet are as big as they are to support his weight and the hands are made big to match.

Custom MoUP is cool, and the build is good. Well done! I like the hammer the most, it's awesome!

Thank you!

RIP in peace my Makuta :I

Don't say that :(  

I am sure your Makuta looks great.

Loving the hammer even more now and... wow. I did not realize it was that big. The hands are pretty awesome now that I've had a good look at them, and it looks like those massive hands are necessary to hold that big honking doomhammer.

Thank you again for your generous comment.

I almost didn't even make the hammer, it was a last minute decision; I am glad I made it now, it has been many peoples' favorite aspect of the build.  The hammer is approximately the size of your average hammer and it has some decent weight to match.  The weight is almost to much for the tension joints, so I usually had to lean it on part of Makuta, the exception being when it is held up over his head.  The hammer does have some structural flaws, that I plan to fix, so the hammer isn't actually held by his fingers but a 3 module Technic beam.  That said, the hands don't have to be as big as they are, but making them smaller might throw off the proportions of the hammer.

Yeah, I feel like smaller hands would make them look wrong for the Hammer of Glory.

"The Hammer of Glory", this made me laugh and that isn't easy to do, thank you.
