Whenua rebooted and revamped for the Bio Cup Eliminatories.
About this creation
Alright! Well uhh with upmost proud, I present to all Whenua Reborn. I've had a love for the Metru series ever since it came out and I felt it deffinitely needed to be remade. Sooo I chose Whenua. Having seen some of the epic entries already on I really wont be surprised if there will be a full Revamped Metru Toa Team as ive already seen a few epic reboots of Whenua's pals. ^.^
Affiliation: Lawfull Good
Tools: Drills, Twin Wrist Blaster, Ancient Battle Club
Moc Status: Built!!!! (For Now...)
The official set pic.
Here he is in full glory!
Some pics are a little blurry (I apologise)
Side view. And credit goes to one epic builder Sam I Am for the fore arm design which i placed to great use
Back pic which im really proud of how it turned out.
When making this I tried to incorporate trans Blue in the build but unfortunately i did not have that eye colour. So credit goes to Banjax for that ingeniuos idea with the use of lightsaber pieces for eyes. :D
Whenua with his iconic toa Tool which attaches onto his fore arm.
The above is one of the more clearer pic of the moc.
Now I do think all Onu-Toa should have this and not just Onua. Digging claws!!!
Whenua: Bring It!!!
An actionish pic ^.^
For a toa of his build i thought a club best suited him.
Whenua:Now this is a toa tool.
Full Length of the weapon.
Whenua Victorious over a Rahkshi.....(Or is that Norik!?)
Blasters, merely an after thought and it works so well with that arm design.
The pic above is my most favourite. The brightness is perfect and IMO it makes the moc look like an actual set. (Now all it needs is a background and the Bionicle Logo)
Fun Fact: The complementary colour scheme was originally gonna be Metru Red. But silver in the end took its place.
Another random Pic
Well Im proud with how Whenua turned out. He's my second Toa on mocpages along with Talex . If you liked this be sure to check out my other mocs. And Best of luck to all in the Bio-Cup. I hope you enjoyed seeing this and i love to hear your thoughts and ideas for improvement. Until next time See Ya :D

AMAZING! I've always loved Whenua, and this MOC portrays him perfectly! Could I get instructions for the torso?
Right now I feel guilty. This is the second time and on both occasions Ive torn the mocs before your request. Well my latest moc Sicoran is similarly based on my Whenua. If you like it comment and I'll make sure I'll post a How-To up for you. ^_^
