Midak, Toa of Light

Recommended Posts

All my life, people told me "You can't make Midak an Av-Matoran. He's just an Onu-Matoran oddball." Well that ends now! I do what I want, and what I want, is for Midak to be an Av-Matoran! And I didn't stop at that, I made a what-if MOC: What if he became a Toa?

The build started at the feet, making them out of Rahkshi staff heads being the basic idea. The thighs use a custom piece I made myself- a standard joint but with the top axle hole rotated 90 degrees. This allowed me to make a long and narrow thighs with a bit more interesting build than a simple Inika joint. The body is a fusion of concepts between bodies I've made in the past- specifically The Recluse and the Onua revamp build I made. The waist is articulatable, made entirely of flexible ribbed hoses, while the top is the Inika Torso + Piraka Foot build I've used several times. Mashing the two took some doing, and he ended up with a pretty bulky backpack as a result, but he does have something of a crab motif, so that's fine.

Also, here's a special black edition! Only at Target~

After toying with his colors a little more, I also brought this little guy in. One of the crab taxis he worked with. He hasn't forgotten them, and they still recognize him, despite his changes!

His crabby occupation is also why I gave him a claw as a weapon. And the staff of light blades are of course a reference to Takanuva. I don't think the Midak Skyblaster needs explaining.

There's something about this that gives me Actual Set vibes, and I love it.  Nicely done.

Also, splendid crabbo.  =D

It is not for us to decide the fate of angels.

Dominus Temporis, if you're out there, hit me up through one of my contacts.  I've been hoping to get back in touch for a long time now.  (Don't worry, I'm not gonna beg you to bring back MLWTB or something.  :P )
