Bionicle - Lewa Re-Revamp by Lalam24 Bionicle - Lewa Re-Revamp by Lalam24
As it were with Tahu, I decided to remake all of the other ones I did, a long with Lewa. Check out Tahu for a bit more info:…

Every piece modified:
4L Bar:
3L Axle rod w/ stud at end
3L Axle rod
2L Axle rod
Axle pin
.5L trim to axle side
Metru Nui Head
Sanded down the front portion a great deal, a long with behind the chin for better
range of motion (the brain stalk and 2L bar inside of it were also modified a bit to fit
the mask on, being so much further back than how it would've before the mod)
Hau Stars Mask
Sanded and reshaped to adapt to the original style, while keeping it much smaller
Trimmed to fit a 5L Axle rod
Antenna 1 x 4
Got rid of bar (used for other pieces), removed bottom connector
L-Shape Liftarm
Got rid of end axle sockets to create the inner shoulder pieces
3x1 Liftarm plate
Got rid of one side for Lewa to have 2L length liftarms.

For this guy, sadly, I had to really dremel/sand down the head, and glue on the mask. I have duplicates of all of the originals, thankfully, but it was the only way to ensure the position was right.

No, sorry.

Maybe in the future, though.

Lewa was the very first Bionicle toy I ever had. It's still one of my favourites. You did a great job on him!

Your amazing revamp shames the original. Great Job!
Wakeangel2001 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
all of these you did a stellar job preserving the aesthetic even while enhancing the articulation far beyond any official kit.

I love all your revamps, but Lewa will always have a special place in my heart.
Anayo-s Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013
Man I really dig how you made these guys more posable than the originals. That annoyed me back when I played with these things, how the CGI movies would show them with bendy elbows and knees and whatnot then the points of articulation on the figures themselves I could perhaps count with one hand. Your MoC's are so resourceful.

very nice!!!
just a thought
why the difference on the left elbow?
all your others seem to use those pin things
Lalam24 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Because there's no single 2L Liftarm in Lime, so I had to cut a 3L to match the size and compensate for an end having to be a cylinder, rather than an axle port.
Deadpool7100 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013
oddly enough i just realized it was a peg slot instead of a bar :D
