2012 Bio-Cup Eliminatories: Tahu Nuva
My entry for the eliminatories of the 2012 Bio-Cup. The category was reboot or remake any hero or toa that was graphically shown, I decided to do one of the most iconic characters from the Bionicle Universe: Tahu, in his Nuva form!! Enjoy!
About this creation


Here is the nessessary picture of the original































Ofcoarse, he has to have his dual flame swords, only this time they are MUCH cooler






Till next time everyone!!




Wow, that was crazy. I spent so much time on this MOC, mostly because it's THE bio-cup. I must say, the torso and arms are the ones that look the best. The legs, meh. I deffinetely could have done better in my opinion, I just simply ran out of ideas and the peices nessassary, so I threw those together. I think they look decently good, even despite the fact they were kinda thrown together. I'm throwing it out there right now that I am scared CRAPLESS about this contest!! I am going against some of the best MOCists in this contest, so I guess that gives me reason to be scared! Anyway, my entries for the final round of the HF: Gear Up contest and round 2 of the BCBS (yes I missed the first one) will be up soon. Till next time my fans and friends! C&C always appreciated!

Sweet build, the sword looks great!

To be honest, I think it's a really good moc. I think the torso makes him look stocky, which is good if that's the look you're going for, but keep in mind, this is a version of toa tahu, so you can't go all that far with changing the basic look without changing the charecter

Yeah I've got to agree with them, the torso here is the main problem. It doesn't make him look cool nor atlhetic, I mean it's a belly for crying out loud! lol! Still the build is solid and effort is clear to have been put here so you earn a 7, but make it moveable and with lees chubyness next time

Your version of the Tahu Nuva look cool enough to earn you enough votes from me! 7/10

So, you decided for a custom-built torso. You even put in a ball joint. Is there any reason you didn't want his torso to be poseable? Anyway, aside for the fact that it looks like he really needs to check his diet, it's a nice build, with a clean presentation (your photos are better than mine). 6/10.

Nice one.Good build, a bit chubby-looking, but good. I would remove the metru red, tough, the all-mata-red color scheme was going on so well (yeah, they're both red, but thats doesn't mean they'll necessarily flow well with each other). 7/10

Very awesome. Two minor complaints though, he seems a bit chubbeh (yea, that's a word :P) on the torso and his ankles just scream for tires there. It would help the flow.

Thanks everyone!

Very awesome! Perhaps if the dark red was instead orange it would be more similar to the original Tahu. Good luck!

Little to change, nice work!

Like the chest tubing and larger shoulder armor. The bulk those skulls have added to cover the kneejoints also added some nice thickness to the legs. Nice work! Cheers!~

Eh, the color scheme is a bit off (too much mata red can hurt) and it's quite lumpy. Though better than I could do for a speed build :D

Wooooo! His magma swords are like sword staffs! Sword staffs are cool. And so are coconuts.

Very cool! The new red/darkred color sheme matches him very well! Also the designs look cool, the upper part of the torso looks... familiar, but the lower part is made very great! Good luck in the contest!

A little "round" looking if you ask me, but overall nice job!

Excellent! Good luck!

It's missing the black and orange the original had to break up the monotonous color scheme. You should probably work that in there.

It's cool but the dark red seems out of place...

I'm not a fan of the dark red, but nice build. The shoulder area of the torso could look better. Otherwise, good job.

Ya I have to agree with callan on this one. But that doesn't mean it isn't awesome!!!

Very cool but i feel like the chest could be moved up a little.

Wow, man, that's an awesome revamp! Where did you get that shoulder design from! :P But lovely work overall, my only complaint is the lack of orange.
