This is the third rendition of my earliest Bionicle MOC. Originally he was a completely ordinary Toa with a black-and-yellow color scheme, armed with a stick with a gear on it. That was the first creation I can remember where I designed before I built. I also tried to make a custom paper mask for it (You can imagine how that looked). The second take, meanwhile, can be found here. The 3rd model differs from the 2nd mainly by the use of a Toa Metru body instead of the original Toa Mata, enabling greater flexibility and strength, as well as featuring "enhanced" images.
Agahnu is one of the several surviving Toa Raka in a vertical shaft-based mining city, whose government was violently usurped several decades ago by a ruthless criminal organization.
The brutal coup shattered the Toa Raka, forcing the survivors into exile to avoid capture by the city's new dominators. Agahnu has spent the years since lurking in the deepest levels of the city, in occasional contact with a shadowy resistance, but for the most part struggling to survive.
He is a Toa of Electromagnetism, appropriate for a civilization whose primary industry is mining.
His powers include telekinetic control over ferrous metals via manipulation of magnetic fields and generation of electric current strong enough to arc over several meters. (Think Magneto's magnetism + Palpatine's Sith Lightning! Booyah!)
As for a suggestion reccomending that Agahnu be a Toa of Metal, I've decided to work those powers into another old character, Veluus.
The mask is a dark grey Kanohi Hau from set #8596 Takanuva, originally part of the included vehicle.
The Toa Metru gear assembly has been removed and the arms are attached by "Technic pin long with stop bush", piece #32054.
