A sneak peak of the most powerful Toa Kuelu to traverse Kueva-Nui.
About this creation
Description: Kihoku, formerly the leader of his own team of Toa Kuelu, was the Hero of the Kueva-Nui Matoran, whom established residence years after the Balsik were wiped out, for his efforts to ward off Mukraatan's forces. He was the one who also settled the spiritual plain of existence surrounding Kueva-Nui, becoming its guardian against any who would corrupt it. By the force of his own will, he created a habitat for the spirits of dead matoran, rahi, etc, where they could meet in peace with one another to work, play, meditate, whatever their hearts desired. However, after his departure from the physical plain to the spiritual, for his destiny on Kueva-Nui had been completed in defeating and sealing off Mukraatan's forces, his team of Toa took over. I say "however", because he did not intend for them to rule at all. They soon became drunk with power, forcing the Matoran to do pointless, often bloody and brutal, tasks of physical labor. They would also "hunt" rahi, some to the point of extinction, most to where the Matoran had barely enough food. Kihoku began hearing cries from dead Matoran showing up at his spiritual doorstep, cries of protest, and decided to return to Kueva-Nui to see if what they were saying was true.

It was true. Kihoku's team had the Matoran in such a reign of Terror that cults began forming to release Mukraatan back into their world, for he, they thought, could not be nearly as bad as these toa, and it would give them something to do other than opress village after village. Kihoku first traveled to the various villages, reassured them that he was on their side, and then proceeded to kill every Toa on the island, earning him names like "Kihoku the Bloody", "Iceheart", and "Savior". His former brothers didn't stand a chance against him, and they fell fairly easily. They called him "Traitor". Yet Kihoku called them "Filth" for the acts they committed.

Upon slaying each Toa, Kihoku harnessed their spirit essence into Toa stones, and sought out one matoran for each stone, matoran destined to be Toa. He succeeded, founding a new team, which ran like this: Kihoku, Toa Kuelu of Ice; Tugratti, Toa Kuelu of Fire; Ivaldi, Toa Kuelu of Lightning (the only male Toa of lightning, might I add); Mejiro, Toa Kuelu of Stone; Selas, Toa Kuelu of Water; and Nosferatu, Toa Kuelu of Shadow (contradictory, yes, but imagine Takanuva's powers after the leech attack). After this team formed, Kihoku returned to guard the spiritual plain of existence. Peace lasted for 10,000 years.

A problem arose, however. The "Mukraatan-Cults" persisted, and they successfuly freed Mukraatan, allowing him to wreak havoc once more. Kihoku's team persisted, fighting many a valiant battle, but the sheer numbers of Mukraatan's forces began to whittle their numbers down. A stalemate ensued between the two forces, leaving Mukraatan's armies weak, needing time to replenish. Kihoku's team was dead. All of them. Tugratti had become imprisoned in the underworld, however, and would not be found until merging with Zwielhander almost a millennia later.

The remaining spirits of Kihoku's fallen brethren gathered around him after passing, wishing to fight once more. He warned them that he could grant them their wish, but their memories and identities would be erased. They would also wind up in a place other than Kueva-Nui and only the workings of time and fate could bring them back to Kueva-Nui.

Ivaldi and Selas accepted, but Mejiro and Nosferatu chose to remain in the spirit world, training matoran who wanted it in case Mukraatan breached their plane of existence. So Ivaldi's essence was given to Mata-Nui, who placed it in a Ga-Metru Temple, imbued in the very lightning staff that Leithe would someday weild to embrace his destiny as Ivaldi's reincarnation. Selas was dispersed into the sea with the promise that she would manifest herself on the shores of Kueva-Nui when a new team arrived. And manifest, she did, as Nimbus.

Kihoku also broke off a piece of his own soul, gave it a conscience, and nurtured it into a Toa essence of its own, one that started off weak, but would soon grow to be second only to him, the essence of Tohuka.

His spear.



Close-up on the armor. It's a lighter version of Tohuka's armor which allows for greater mobility.



Battle Stance. His favorite tactic involves toying with his enemies, throwing him back with his mask of Telekinesis whenever they charge him until they fall to the ground exhausted. At that point they're easy kills.



Another battle stance. Worth noting that he had Telekinetic powers before he acquired his new mask (he originally wore a silver Miru), but his mask enhances those powers.



Icy shoulder.

Quoting Michael H Mejiro - Komorro or Tohuka perhaps? Anyway, this is my favourite Toa out of all of them. It was so hard to choose, since all your Toa are awesome. One question however, how do you get all these parts? Is is just by buying the sets? (Wait...thats two questions..lol)
No, Mejiro still exists as Mejiro but I haven't put him in the story yet. And I have a part-time job so I can afford to buy a bunch of sets when I have the money and when college isn't sucking my wallet dry...

Quoting Lego lover of everything whos ivaldi,mejiro and selas?
I already posted Nosferatu. Ivaldi, Mejiro, and Selas are part of Kihoku's second team whom were killed in combat against Mukraatan. Ivaldi reincarnated as Leithe, Selas reincarnated as Nimbus, and I haven't decided what to do with Mejiro yet.
