My Toa of Earth, Darcarn. Combine 'dark' and the letters c, a, r and n from 'cavern' and you get this dude's name.
About this creation
The badass of the team. He's big, muscly, strong, quite up himself, and was the very last one to get built cos I couldn't find a black body anywhere, and all the Toa Whenua sets on ebay were stupidly expensive. I eventually got lucky in a big bundle of assorted bits that no-one else bod on and I saw a Whenua body poking out the bottom of.
Toa Team 1.
I gave him the laser drill originally, figuring it came from a toe of earth, why not keep it with one? Also I didn't really have anything I classed as an 'earth' weapon aside from Onua Nuva's chainsaws, but I didn't think they looked right on my MOC:
And for diversity I gave him a pair of dual swords...
which could go on his back like thus:
And finally, everything together. I decided to use the chainsaws in the end but only as a method of transport, not for chopping things up:
Toa Team 2.
Lots of gold armour and whole new set of weapons:
Two large staff things became his weapons, which emit concentrated shock waves for digging and hitting:
Toa Team 3.
Same armour as before, with bigger and more bad-ass shockwave weapons and an energy ball launcher a la Predator for good measure:
