As stated with Tahu, the intent of this was to capture the same, basic appearance that was delivered by the original Bionicle set, including proportioning, color scheme, etc. Of course, I had many limits, but he shares a very basic appearance, which is exactly what I was out for. I also wanted to ensure his poses could come across as being much more natural/organic, instead of the common "stiff" looking sets we've been given. Some of his layout is different than Tahu, due to a limitation of pieces.
Please note that this figure required me to "edit" some of my pieces. I simply trimmed down axis/pins to be sizes which weren't available. For example, instead of a 2m axis piece, a 1.5 axis piece; instead of a 4m pin, a 2m pin, and etc. The also trimmed some other things down, but I have a very kitbash-esque thought process going on, and since I didn't care not to combine this with my lego creativity, I went ahead with it.

Bionicle meets Megaman. That's the feeling I get when I see these. I might have to try my hand at one of these (with untrimmed pieces though). These are amazing though. I miss the old bionicle.
The joints wouldn't be possible to make. You'd definitely have to come up with a new joint system. Good luck, and thanks!
Wow. That is excellent. I... That looks so well done I believe you may be underrated because no one can tell the difference! ^^ you are most certainly fav'd. Excellent work again. That's just wonderful!
