This is my entry into eliminatories of the Bio-Cup 2012. Wish me luck!
One of the six toa to land on the island of Mata Nui, Lewa was a cunning, excitable Toa, but on occasion immature. Now over the the past years he's spent with his team, the Toa Nuva, Lewa has matured greatly, and has grown respect for every Toa on the team(Yes, even Tahu). He went missing during the Battle for Spherus Magna and is currently in the residence of Bota Magna.
A story I was too lazy to turn into a movie:
Tahu: As the leader of the Toa Nuva I'm obviously the best!
Lewa: You're a hot-head firespitter, Tahu, the coolness of myself is only fit to lead the Toa Nuva!
Takanuva: I've been the hotshot Matoran ever since the beginning, and now that I'm a toa, I'm better than you two combined!
Tahu: What a load of Kaneha bull!
Lewa: We never had to be Matoran-midgets like you!
Takanuva: Ya know what!? I say we go our separate ways and find upgrades for ourselves, and whoever gets the bests ones is the best!
Tahu: Not a bad idea for a former-Matoran, let's do it!
Lewa: Let's be as fast-quick as possible, I can pwn-school you in as little as 10 minues!!
Tahu: Wow, Takanuva, you're pretty big! Not too shabby!
Takanuva: Thanks, Tahu, you're not terrible yourself. You'd be surprised how much a small shadow leech can do to ya!
Lewa: And you'll be surprised how much I did to myself!
Tahu: Holy Makutafish!
Lewa: How about them apple-fruits?!
Legs, much more detailed than the original's, but I like them quite a lot!
The chest was a pain to work out, but it's certainly paid off! The arms aren't my favorite, but they work well!
Rear view, gear included!
A better view at the fake gear function. I was tempted to make it work, but then the arms would become floppy, so I avoided it. :/
The sword design. You like it?
Comparison with Toa Cossy.
Comparison with Lewa Nuva, the original.
And here he is with the three Lang Brothers!
Finally, a LOT of air Toa. Ha ha, Air must be a popular element!
Lewa: Farewell, young ones, till the time-next!
Please comment and rate if you like him! See ya round!
The moc looks great! This was always one of my favorite bionicles. I really like the front chest armor. My only suggestion is maybe cut back on the sword's length. It seems like having two huge swords would be too heavy, even for a toa-hero.
From build to design, this is indeed a very solid entry! Well done Callan! 9/10
I like it

It's a great revamp, I don't see any flaws on it. I'm in love with the whole fake gear function gimmick that it has going. ^_^ Also, this is A.D, I would like to say sorry for all the stuff I did, I was an idiot and a huge jerk especially towards you. So in an attempt to make it up to you, I'd like to build Callan, if that's okay.
Thanks a million everybody, you guys are the best!

My only real problem is the angle of his pauldrons, but that's just me.
Yeah, I tried placing them like the original's, but they looked a little odd when placed out too far and when they looked perfect they'd pop off when he'd move his arms up. But yeah, I don't blame you, good sir. :)
I really like how rather than adding tons of new features and armour etc., You went for a, almost replica, version of him. from the gears to the colours to the swords, everything about this guy makes me thing of Lewa! Nice work once again!
I never liked Lewa, let alone Lewa Nuva. But you sir have made him epic!!!
Btw, I would enter in the eliminatories contest but I am too low on parts to the point of me not being able to finish my Maxilos, self moc, and Makuta Teridax revamps. [Maxilos is a bit shorter though now though because I couldn't make him bigger.
Lewa was always one of my favorites. But so were the rest of the Mata! Anyway, this is a great MOC! I definitely wish I could build this well, but I don't even have enough pieces to pull something like this off. Great job, and good luck!
Very nice! You kept all of the original's colors! And also the designs are fantastic, the chest detail looks very great! Just a small notice: You mixed up the texts under the last few images ;). Anyway, good luck in the contest!
