(V2!) Tallix: The Metal Knight . (updated pics of) A toa of metal made for the Bio-cup 2013 Eliminatory round! . Tallix was born a toa, in fact one of the very first. He was also one of the first to join the Order of Mata-nui. He was assigned to watch over the area around Metru-nui. He was the type of toa that all matoran dreamed to be. He was bold, courageous, chivalrous, and kind. He was very well liked by his fellow toa and the matoran he protected. He was also very in touch with his power over metal.
He quickly rose through the ranks of the order, gaining more and more responsibility. He was assigned multiple teams of toa to lead, but he had never been good at leading and planning. He was a quick thinker though, and as such was successful with his teams at first. He also had regular dealings with the Makuta of Metru-nui, but even in Tallix’s time the makuta was planning evil. The makuta realized that in order for his plan to work he needed to get rid of Tallix, who had begun to notice the Makuta’s odd behavior. The Makuta began to throw more and more difficult obstacles in Tallix’s way. Whether it was a dangerous rahi, criminals, or Dark Hunters, Tallix was always able to overcome all.
The Makuta found this all rather amusing, but his patience had ended. He set forth a terrible rahi in Ko-metru. It captured several matoran. Tallix’s teams were quickly dispatched to deal with the rahi. It had made a nest up on the top of a tall building. It seemed too easy to Tallix. He cautiously sent a toa up to see what was happening on the roof. The toa returned, saying it wasn’t in its nest. The teams scaled the building.
At the top they found a large nest with three matoran. Suddenly hundreds of rahi flew in the air from the other roofs. “Retreat!” yelled Tallix. The toa tried to climb down the building, which was disastrous. The toa and matoran were easy picking for the flying rahi. By the time they reached the ground more than half the toa had been captured by the rahi, who were fighting over their prizes. Tallix used his power over metal to make a spire that carried him to the roof. There he crushed every last rahi in an amazing display of elemental power. He saved all the toa but three.
He returned to the ground, welcomed as a hero. He was crushed by the near disaster of his leadership. He started becoming more and more distraught. One day he disappeared, his fellow toa thought he had went on a journey somewhere, as a break from his duties, but the Makuta of Metru-nui knew otherwise…
To be continued…
Running... or something. XD
I know Kar-ra-Tae!
Took a while to balance him like this. :)
Staring at... his hand?
I fight... for Mata-nui!
OK, I love how this guy turned out! Always wanted to use that mask. Not much else to say... Wish me luck! :D
Alright updated with V2! I took all the suggestions I got... Slightly bulkier torso for Chro... Shortened torso.... and new feet for LA! Hope you like it! I really like the "armored boot" foot design I came up with for him, so here's a few pics.
