Great work. There seems to be a lack of truly awesome Kopaka Revamps but this is great. The armoring is just enough to capture the feel of Kopaka but not so much as to make him too bulky. The shoulders could have used some armor but still, it looks fine without. Good job.

Nice remake. The only deficiency is the lack of armor on shoulders, which reveals the sparp edges of his forearms.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm assuming you mena upper arms, not forearms. Anyway, yes, their edges are rather sharp, but I don't know what I could have used as shoulder armor. If this was still assembled I might see what I could do to fix it.
Okay, in my opinion, if I was judging, versus Chro, you win. Why? You swayed me with a more "true to original" feel. Plus you built the original version. I love that under-armour greebling, it's a technique I've tried (and failed) to master thousands of times. Well done, you have achieved a level of MOCing that is absolutely excellent. And Sarge, why aren't I judging?!
I like it

Now that's one good revamp. Love the solidness of the torso
*Aakppbth!!* Incredible! Why are both of you so good?! Why am 'I' judging you? Why not Reaper? *Sobs* All right, pulling myself back together, this was an incredible hard decision, probably the hardest I've ever made in my judging career on MOCpages. You both did insane. Overall, I can barely decide. You had the perfect amount of bulkiness and had a brilliant build, while [Chro] had amazing cleanliness, balance, and the perfect Revamped feel of Pohatu. His resembles his choice of build better than yours, I think. Whilst you both did well, only one of you could win my vote, and in the end, I had to hand my vote to [Chro]. Nice job,anyway, and understand, this was very close. Sorry for the long comment, but I felt I should explain why he won my vote. Again, you did an insane job, and I hope to see you again next year, or in the MIT that is going to be organized! Fantastic entry, man!
I really like your take on kopaka (his mata form i assume). His build is great from a design standpoint, but in some areas he looks a bit too blocky for my tastes. Also, i love the addition of the trans blue.
