A Change Of Face

Now that the images have finally been officially released, I can finally post my own versions of these characters. First up is KAPURA, who sports a slightly different KANOHI than one might have assumed based on the MNOLG, but there were certain problems with the PAKARI and RURU getting mixed up, and KAPURA was one of the affected characters.

The next three are all technically the same characters, but based on different views. This is the official version of the original TAKUA, which has been the subject of a long-standing debate. Of course, since he's undergone a bit of a color change for the MASK OF LIGHT movie, I threw together a Retro Neo-TAKUA, using the original MATORAN design with the MoL coloration. I'm not fond of the pastel blue KANOHI, so I also made an Improved Retro Neo-TAKUA. Then again, I think I still prefer my original version.

We can also finally settle the whole HAFU/TAIPU debate, as to whether the MNOLG HAFU is the correct version, or if it's the officially released LEGOŽ set from the PowerPack. This is HAFU. This is TAIPU. It's official.

Finally is HAHLI. From her bio picture, it seems like she should look like this, but if that were true, than GALI's bio picture would mean that she should look like this.
