Introduction: 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!

The Legs!

Follow the pics

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

Step 2: Step 2 Torso!

The Torso

Follow the pictures!

Step 3: Arms and Hands!

The arms and hands!

Follow the pics

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

You probably know what to do by now...

Cool, I can't wait to make this guy! By the way, to get good closeup pics, you could use this camera: http://stopmotionexplosion.com/collections/stopmotion-cameras/products/hd-stopmotion-camera It has a manual focus for extreme closeups and is good for stop motion, I use it all the time!

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 lego.com! i also like the gun on the shoulder added from one of the inika (i cant remember which), but this is great!

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