For the past year or so, I've been working on revamps. It started out with a simple Matoran design that made the 2003 design more compact and slim. As time passed, I did other characters, finishing up the Barraki. I was then inspired to redo Nuparu, but with a high degree of poseability. I eventually decided to make a self MOC, but when I got my Bricklink haul, I decided against it when I saw that I had a Noble Mahiki. Thus, after about half an hour of tinkering around with designs, here is the fruit of my labors.
I present Turaga Matau, the Prankster!
I honestly am too lazy to make that link look pretty. Anyways, that's my Flickr album of him, and it'll serve as the home for my future Turaga.
I decided to give Matau a compact design that takes a great influence from the movie design rather than the set. The tube serves to emulate his robes, if I can find a better way to do it, I would have. For now, the tube serves its purpose. I plan on doing all the Turaga soon, the next one is either Whenua or Vakama.
