Who is your favorite Toa?


The Ostrich...

This is not my favorite design from the Masterbuilder. I don' t know exactly what it is about it, but every time I look at it, I think that it should look more...well, ostrichy. I can't yet see a way that the physical design could have been improved, but I feel like there has to be something that can be done.

For what it is, the design is pretty interesting. The THROWBOT? torso is perfectly suited for an ostrich's body, and the TOA weapon arms work pretty well for the legs.

The one action feature that has been incorporated into this design is the "pecking" action. It's a bit slow going up and down, but turning the little gear on the back makes the neck lower until the beak hits the ground, or raise back up into a more alert position.
