LEGO Bionicle MOC: Proto-Toa, the TRUE first Toa

This post from Zeyek explains the creation, and the demise, of the peculiar creation that was the first Toa.  Don't be quick to rush to the comment box, confident that I am an ignoramus, ready to spill your guts about Helryx this, Helryx that.  Read Zeyek's post.  Just read it.  Now, back to the MOC...
This is definitely one of my favorite Bionicle MOCs, completed one year ago tomorrow.  It has a lot of "solidness," a strong, well-defined figure, and a consistent theme.  I can imagine it emerging from the protodermis pool, wet with liquid matter, drips falling off its prototype hands as if the fingers, themselves, are solidifying from those very drips.  I couldn't think of a better way to use my one chrome Hau.  No, I'm not really happy with myself for how this Proto-Toa MOC turned out, I'm just happy with the MOC itself!
