When the Toa Nuva got upgrades from Artahka, they received the ability to adapt to their environment, turning them into the Toa Phantoka/Mistika. Therefore, before Bionicle Stars happened, Kopaka's Akaku should've adapted into the desert environments of Bara Magna. Equipping himself with hydration systems and dust filters for ease of travel in the sandy wastes, he's ready to battle Makuta Teridax who took over the Great Spirit Robot.
Got help from Toa Imrukii/AidanBionicle1 for the coinage of "Ashaka" which means "Sprits dwelling in the Sands" and I'm naming the Desert Adapted series as so following the "Phantoka/Mistika" formula.
DISCLAIMER: due to the new sanding process of Shapeways, the Versatile Plastic may come out too thin or too thick. This result is completely out of my control and I chose to stick to these measurements for if by the rare chance that you get the thin axles, a good 3 coats of hobby acrylic paint can fix it. Better this than a very large axle that breaks your Bionicle and Technic pieces. I myself received thinly printed axles on my personal order, and came up with this solution myself. Please recommend better solutions to this if you have found out any.
Bionicle is still a trademark of Lego and I own nothing but the design concepts and 3D models I make to add to its lore.
Special thanks to Meliug_Ocan for the prototyping tests. The images attached are made through his personal 3D printer and not Shapeways. After testing, the mask is deemed compatible with Metru, Av-Matoran, and Tohunga heads. Making it fit with Mata heads stretches the plastic.
