The Toa Nuva of Ice

I recently bought Kopaka Nuva off Bricklink, along with 8549 Tarakava, 8583 Hahli, 8578 Gahlok-Kal and 8550 Gahlok Va. With the addition of him to my collection, I now have all the Toa Nuva.

Kopaka Nuva has a similar build to his predecessor, but with different and new parts. Like Kopaka Mata he has old light grey limbs, a white torso, white feet and a white Kanohi. However, Kopaka Nuva has flat silver shoulder and chest armour, a double-sided ice blade and a large white shield, as well as a white Kanohi Akaku Nuva (The Nuva mask of X-Ray Vision).

Like Kopaka Mata, he has a cog system where if you turn the back connector his right arm holding the ice blade swings up and down. His ice blades can also be split in two and reconnected to his feet, making ice skates, useful for skating down the mountains he lived among. Strangely though, he doesn't have a left hand; his shield is connected directly into his arm.

Overall, it's a good set, but nothing really special. It would be most appealing to completists like me. :P
