LEGO Bionicle MOC: Toa Inika Nuparu, Bionicle Heroes edition
Okay, in contrast to my Toa Inika Matoro MOC, I think this Toa Inika Nuparu MOC came out pretty well. Again drawing all of its influence from the Bionicle Heroes game, I wanted to make this Nuparu shorter & more squat and stocky than his brethren. This time I also did the weapons right, with his sword and awesome splash damage inflicting cannon that was perfect for the Vakhi bonus level. I dunno, I just really like this guy, and while many of my other MOCs are marked for disassembly once I'm caught up with posting them, I think I'm going to hang onto this one!
