Bionicle MOC: Onua Mata revamp by Mana-Ramp-Matoran

Vision: While the vision of this model is not fueled by the MOC itself, it is absolutely worth five stars. This is because the vision of Bionicle is worth more than six stars and this MOC represents that Idea.

Originality: I rated this four stars because the design is almost perfectly original, save the character himself. Frankly, dinging off one star is not at all an insult to the creator, it is rather giving credit to the designers of 2000-2010.

Technique: The use of the pipes and the large gears on the back only add to my impression of the model. The gears really did feed my old-fan side, while the pipes helped to add the feeling of strength in the revamp. The only two things that are a little off (in my humble opinion) are the hands. The hands had been Onua's only tools and had amazing strength to them. Where as these are smaller hands don't seem to communicate the same rebooted feel as the rest of the model does. If anything, these claws should be big three pronged steam shovels or anything else like that.

Impact: On me, this MOC has six stars, if I could give them.
When I saw this creation it made me see the same sense of strength that the old model processed, only amplified!
For this reason, I give it as many stars as I can give in this area.

Thanks for this Critique. Glad you like onua. I understand what you're meaning about the claws, Since Onua is bigger his hands should be a little bit bigger to, but this was me staying true to the set. I felt I absolutely had to use the feet, mask and claws for the onua revamp, those are a must in any toa revamp I feel. I did try to add onto them though by giving him a thumb. Unfortunately there wasn't much else I could do there.
