Today I bring to you the Brute of the Toa Elite, Toka! Thanks to Ivan, Wanderer of the Wasteland for the name! Toka is the third member of my custom toa team. Sorry for the bad photos.
About this creation
Title: The Brute
Kanohi: Pehkui, mask of diminishment
Weapons/tools: Boulder gauntlet
Alignment: Good, Brotherhood of Makuta (Formerly), Toa Elite (Currently)
Bio: For once the toa of stone is the heavy of the team. Traditionally the earth toa takes this role, but I wanted my toa team to be a bit unique, so I gave the title, Brute to the stone toa.
Toka has a similar backstory as the other Elite members. Xerox (a makuta) heard of Toka's immense strength as a matoran and thought of how much stronger he could be if he was trained as a toa. So Xerox gave Toka a toa stone and took him to the Brotherhood training compound where the other members of the Elite were being trained. Once there Toka became friends with the team's members, except he had a short fuse with Blitz. Because Blitz is the only Toa on the team with sheer strength enough to rival Toka, they are usually the ones to argue or fight.
A front view. I know this moc is quite colourful, but I like the way it reminds me of some multi coloured rocks, if that makes sense. Toka has a boulder gauntlet on his right arm that acts as his main weapon. I just used the Axonn hand design because it works fine imo. I don't mind his Piraka chest but if I didn't have a colour shortage, I may have changed some things. The legs though, bother me and may be changed in the future.
Cover your eyes, the gaps will kill you. XD The reason his legs are so gappy is because of the supports I put on the back.
A cool pic of Toka reaching for the cookie jar. :P
Runk: Come on Toka, give me back my shield.
Toka: Not until you take back what you said about my gaps!
A final shot of three of the four current members of the Toa Elite. One more to go and the team will be complete. When the team is complete, I will likely start a set of posts that contain each Toa's background and their significance to the story. Also, notice the changed heartlight colour on Runk and the green highlights representing elemental energy.
Thanks for viewing! I'm starting SpicyPorg's self moc, so he may be posted in a few weeks. BTW these next couple of weeks are going to be pretty busy with school ending soon, so my posts may not be on a weekly schedule.
