Kanohi Arkahna by 0nuku Kanohi Arkahna by 0nuku
Kanohi Arkahna, Mask of Tension. Allows the user to visualize the stress and compression of objects within their view. Example usages include analyzing a structure for weak points or even locating footsteps in a darkened room. The mask of Toa Hagah Onuku.

You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this moment, but my goodness, was it worth it. It's beautiful, completely and utterly beautiful. I can't wait to get it printed and stuck on Toa Onuku!

Based on the concept art, which I would recommend checking out just because this mask has a bit of a history. I've been waiting literally years to get it finalized and printed, and it's had plenty of iterations.

I'm getting old lego knights vibes from this one. You know, back when they had those Constructable knight guys with the helmet masks you could put on them?
At the same time, it also looks like it would fit in among the Air-adapted Toa.

Oh yeah, I remember those Knights Kingdom sets. I still have a few parts sitting around. They do have cool masks, but the Phantoka masks were more of my inspiration. I think the vents came from ToaTiome's interpretation of Toa Onua.

Ah, I see. 
Ugh, now I just remembered how hideous some of the Phantoka/Mistika masks were. Why did they have to make so many "mutant" masks? We've got so many masks now that don't have a "normal" form known, like Gorast's, Bitil's, etc. And I can't be the only one who is annoyed at the Noble designs for the Kakama, Miru and Akaku all looking like Sky-adapted noble masks of the Nuva forms rather than resembling their original counterparts. I'm going off on tangents today.

This actually has a really good design, I could have been fooled into thinking it was an official prototype, because those things (almost)always look great. Seriously, fantastic mask.
I hope the axle works well, those are rather infamous

Pretty radical, fans making custom masks for this toyline.
