This was made entirely with the intention of using the Mctoran arm as a spine piece.  I made the torso, and thought it was Turaga like, so I put Whenua around it.  Some points may be disliked by those who favour the original colour scheme.  It's black and dark bley, rather than dark grey and black.  I have the parts to make it dark grey, except for the Kanohi, and the shoulder joints, and ankle pieces.  So this was, I think, a good alternative.  I also don't have the original staff, so I cobbled that together, don't judge it too much, it's roughly the right shape.

 

Post away. :)

Very good revamp! I like how.you retained the classic look and appeal, yet added more articulation. The only thing that I think could use work on is the staff. You made it proportionate, but it doesn't look pointy enough like the original's did.

Whoops, sorry. I didn't read the description first. I leapt without looking. (Sandstorm reference).

Oh this is pretty darn cool. I love the drill the most and they way you have him hinched over. Do you plan to do all the Turaga?

I was a bit skeptical about it at first, but then I saw how well the colours clash and the overall proportions look. My only complaint is the red pin, but I think that's there to spice it up a bit. Keep up the great work!

Could you possibly show me how to use the McToran throwing arm?

You mean post instructions for the torso? I can do that.

Nice! The torso turned out quite nicely. The staff looks pretty good too.
