[color=rgb(47,79,79);]At long last, I have finally completed the Toa with which my Nuva project began: Gali.  I first conceived of the general leg design three years ago, and after years of tinkering and collecting pieces from literally around the globe, she is complete.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]I had planned on sculpting a custom mask, but with my limited time and numerous other projects, I chose to simply alter her original Mistika mask so that it wasn't so horrid.  So, without further adieu, I present Toa Gali Nuva in her Mistika form:[/color]

Very impressive! The heartlight seems a little high on her chest, though. The gun worked out really well. Although I have one question that has haunted me ever since I first saw some of your MOCs: How the heck did you make the hands? I've tried to figure out every possible technique you might have used, but the only thing that comes to mind is superglue.

Aside from that, this is a very good representation of Gali, and it's definitely an improvement from her actual set form. Great job!

All the customized parts you use... simultaneously brilliant and frustrating. :lol:

I kind of feel like it's cheating with MOCing some of the time, but you generally use them to great effect, so it's alright, I guess.

Excellent creation, as usual.

Like usual, I like your chest design. I agree with the 1st Shadow, the heart light does seem a little high. The legs are nice as well. Your MOCs never cease to amaze me.

The gun just seems odd, but other than that it's great.

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]Thanks 1st Shadow, and you're correct - superglue.  In fact, there are numerous places on her that I use superglue to either make impossible connections or to hold together weak ones.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]Ah yes, Chro, the never-ending debate: to modify, or not to modify.  Luckily I only customize when it is absolutely necessary to achieve a desired effect.  I am currently making Teridax in a form that is to scale with my Nuva, i.e. monstrously huge, and thus there is virtually no modification of parts. [/color]

 

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]And thanks to Takua and Flaredrick, though I don't know how I would lower the heartlight without drilling a hole lover down (something I am quite reluctant to do).  As to the gun, it was a five-minute build whipped up so that I could post her with a weapon.  It is odd... but any suggestions?[/color]

I love yor style and the MoC is great, however the lack of fins on the head feels incomplete. Also, she doesn't look feminine enough (but that seems like I am nit-picking). I love the MoC and overall it looks great! Can't wait for the rest.

 

Question: Is there any other sites I can access and look at your MoCs? (You are the best MoCist ever).

I agree! I want to see the other moc you have made! :D

Also I think ive seen this moc of yours a while ago in a group shot with the other adaptive armor toa nuva, right?

Btw nice torso and arm design! Also how tall is the moc compared to an actual normal sized set?

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]Thanks TechnicRage, and thanks Chro for providing the link.  The mask would perhaps look better with fins, but not with the ones she had; they were too large, particularly for a normally-sized toa build.  The "waffle eye" is also undesirable, which is why I had intended to sculpt her a new mask, but I haven't the time to do that anymore.  The sculpting projects for Teridax, Kapura, and Vezon are taking long enough to finish....[/color]

The gluing and cutting makes me sad bunny. But I'll move past that because the end result is quite excellent.The absence of the headfins is a little disappointing to me, but I know that a lot of people didn't like them. So my only real complaint is that I think Gali would look nicer if her neck was one length longer, and her lower legs were also extended a length. As it is, her head is kind of buried in her chest, and the shortness of the legs makes her look... inelegant.I appreciate the abundance of silver, making her look truly Mistika, and I love the appearance of the waist. I'm just going to leave now before I start counting all the places you mangled your Legos. >_>

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]Bundalings, you were totally right about the neck.  I tried it, and it looks far better.  However, it is ironic that I had to cut and glue even more in order to accomplish this with a metru head.  I do not know how to lengthen the legs, however...[/color]

This is really spectacular! The level of detail you put it to this and your Toa Ignika MOC which I also saw is tremendous! I'm really liking the use of customized parts, especially that Ignika. I'll need to try that with some of my MOCs. Will any of your creations be at BrickFair Virginia this August?

 

BTW I would love to see a custom sculpted AA Gali Nuva Mask!  ;)

Most of the pictures enlarge slightly when you click them. (I agree though, larger photos would be nice... maybe flickr, with the new terabyte limit?)

As yet another purist, I have to frown on all the alterations.  But the final MOC really does looks very cohesive and believable.  I like how you maintained the Mistika-era obsession with silver but made it look good.

This looks AWESOME! :o Very humanoid body, the silver really looks like an tight-fitting armor !

The only thing that buggers me a little is the absence of the winglets on her mask.

[color=rgb(47,79,79);]Thanks everyone, and yeah the mask is normal but the lighting, its surface texture, and the editing make it appear a bit pale.  It has more of a matte finish than other masks and so the already diffuse light is scattered more by its surface.  In addition to that, I always brighten the images afterwards because of previous complaints, which can affect the contrast and thus the vibrancy of the colors.  [/color]

Really nice. I might suggest using a bit more blue, though, to make it a bit more obvious that she's a Toa of water.

What on earth is the foot piece here from? I've gotta get one now.
