Alternate main pic.
The two of them. I know, I know, but hey, I don't have that much purple. :P
Name: Garax (gawr-ehx)
Alignment: Chaotic evil
Occupation: Dark Toa, Thief, Assassin
Titles: Brother, Peacemaker
Weapons: Arm- mounted duel-barreled laser cannon
Story: When Garax finished Toa training and became a Toa, he was ecstatic. He was a very good tracker, hunter and a skilled warrior. When he was first put on a Toa team, he fell for the Toa of Water. Her name was Shasta. He tried to impress her whenever she was looking and his foolish acts often endangered the missions they were on. One day when they were alone in the middle of a forest on a mission, Garax tried to touch her. The raised commotion of Garax being flung into a lake alerted the Makuta of the Toa's presence. When the Makuta popped out and started shooting, Garax clambered out of the lake to defend Shasta. The Makuta charged and Garax lost his hand in the fight. Shasta eventually killed the Makuta. The other Toa found them and took Garax to their camp. The mission was aborted and Garax was taken to a Toa base and given a robotic hand. Shasta sent in a complaint about Garax and asked for him to be removed from the team, and once she got the other Toa members to agree, Garax was put on a different team. Garax was furious. He tried to save her life and she abandoned him. Garax threw a fit of rage and killed one of his new Toa teammates. When he saw what he did, he ran. He went and joined a Dark Toa organization called "The Peacemakers." This group usually dealt with assassinations and corporate espionage. He was given a sidekick partner named Polto, a rebellious, lily-livered Matoran. Garax usually pays no attention to Polto and regards him only as a nuisance. Polto is loyal though and is usually hot on Garax's heels, eager to assist.
Here he is! I built him in one day, but I really like him! :D
A whole view of him.
An epic shot.
He's very pose-able.
Close-up of his feet and legs.
His legs, one of my favorite parts. :)
The back of the legs.
Torso. Kinda simple, but effective. ;D
Left arm with robotic hand.
Right arm. I like this kind of arm design using the Mata feet. ;)
I really like this character. I might do something more with him in the future.
Huh. I just realized the mask at this angle looks pretty cool. :P
Name: Polto (paul-toe)
Alignment: Lawful evil
Titles: Minion, Servant, Annoying
Weapons: Laser pistol with poisonous blade
Story: See Garax's story.
He was kinda last minute.
Who ya talking to buster?
The two of them again.
Jube: Has anyone seen my anti-acids?
Whoo! This was fun. :) Building for a contest is a lot more fun when you have pieces to work with. I was determined to make this entry better then my last one and I think I succeeded. :D Some of you may be wondering why I post so early? Well I'm leaving for Colorado Friday and won't be back till the 27th. So yeah, that's kinda why Polto was last minute. Garax is also my character in case I decide to join the Council of Toa RPG. ;)
These guys are really great figures! Polto has quite a cool little design, and I love the proportions on Garax! The orange looks great, although it's a pity you couldn't get purple, considering the element. Only real flaw to me is that neither of them look REALLY evil, but hey, they're still overall well built!(Only thing I'd recommend is borrowing black ball joints from a couple of your mocs that might not need them just for the photo shoot, the red ones stick out quite a lot, especially on these guys)
Quoting Toa Infernum
Nice! I love Garax's leg design and his feet are amazing! Polto's body design and feet design are also very nice. I really like their bio, I hope you expand upon it! BTW Have fun in Colarado! :D
