This is my entry to the BCBS Contest in June! Bralter is the Toa of Not-Stepping-Back, heavily armored and wields a mighty shield. The topic was "Toa of X".
He is also a NPC of the Sentinels in the Council of Toa roleplay.
Now to an unusual start: A silly comic by me!
Viretha waits for Grentar.
Grentar: Hi, Viretha!
Viretha: Hi, Grentar, nice to see you again!
Grentar: Have you heard? There are many villains out there... some say, we won't be save anymore...
Viretha: Oh no!
Viretha: Look! There is already one!
Grentar: Not him again...
Both: A Visorak! Who could help us now?
The solution: A Toa of Not-stepping-back! The powerful warrior aprroaches...
And hits the creepy Visorak away.
Grentar: Many thanks! What would've we done without you?
Range: I'm going to save you! Wait... he already defeated the spider.
Range: But that was my role! You're not awesome enough to do that!
Vorred: Range, get out. This page is to show off Bralter and his heroics, not you.
Vastara: It was said here is something interesting?
Vored: Everybody out!
Here are the pics of Bralter, anyway.
Front view. I really liked how his torso and legs turned out, and I also like his mask, it fits him very well.
Good old action poses!
Vorred: Gimme back my mask!
Bralter: Aargh, get that thing down!
Viretha: I'll save you!
Complicated and fun to build. I already had the idea of the main torso structure and the use of the Mata torsos in mind before I actually build him. Then I got this mask (50 cent for it) and made his color sheme.
Fits the topic of this round very well, I think.
The thing about Range: When he says Bralter had stolen his place, he's somehow right. If I haven't got that mask, I woul've made "Range, Toa of Awesomeness" instead :P
Thank you all for your nice comments! And yes, the arms need work indeed. I could change it when I don't have to dismantle him :). And the element was the first thing that I had in mind, but your ideas of defining it more are also very great! Now to some comments: @Steve: Range will get an upgrade when I'll start to make the third part of my story! @Marco and Obsessionist: There was a guy on a "used stuff"-market who sold me 8 masks for 50 cent each. He hasn't know that there were two misprints :D
Toa of Not-Stepping Back.....that deserves credit and a lol! XD And I never thought the origional toa bodies could ever be feet design. That is awesome! Very Impressive :D

I don't totally understand the element, but it's a very awesome build! I love those Mata-body feet. The only thing I thing I don't care for is the left arm.. It's kinda wimpy compared to his huge structure.
Very nice MoC!
He really looks like a Toa of Not-Stepping-Back (Strange element, but I guess that's the idea in the whole MoC), because of his bulky look and the shield. The combination of green and grey fits good and somehow gives me the idea of a tree (you know, a tree just stand there and... does not step back :D). Fits the topic of the MoC very well! I like it
