Introduction: Bionicle Nuparu Matoran Revamp

Picture of Bionicle Nuparu Matoran Revamp

This is essentially my revamp of one of my favorite bionicle matoran, Nuparu. Basically, It has custom legs, torso, and arms, complete with a robotic one. Though it is small, this model is somewhat difficult for first time builders. Even if you don't have the pieces in the same color you can still follow it as a model.

Difficulty: 8.5/10

Estimated Time: 15- 30 minutes

Step 1: Step 1 the Legs!

IMPORTANT! Remember to make a second leg but a mirror image!

Step 2: Step 2 Torso!

When making the robot hand, attach the single thumb to the lower part and the three other fingers to the higher piece.

Step 4: Head and Blaster

Cool, I can't wait to make this guy! By the way, to get good closeup pics, you could use this camera: It has a manual focus for extreme closeups and is good for stop motion, I use it all the time!

Wow pretty nice, I really like the design.

Wow. Just pure amazing! Definite favorite, I tried to build it but I had to substitute the arms because I ran out of those little black sphere connecters

this is a much better nuparu than the sets, i think you should email this to! i also like the gun on the shoulder added from one of the inika (i cant remember which), but this is great!

Chunky! (author)The Jamalam2008-09-23

Thanks a lot! The gun is based on Nuparu Inika. If mean colour, it would be Hewkii Inika.

Wow that's a chunky bionicle I think you should add a power glove but it still good with out it.

Chunky! (author)Ginosmooth2008-09-23
