Kopaka was my first Toa Mata. I got him and Lewa at the same time.

Ah, memories. <3

This version of Kopaka looks like he's going to rip the shit out of anyone who talks smack about Bionicle.

I don't know why but Kopaka has been one of my favorites for a while. I like the swordsman aspect to him, I really like the choice of making his sword more on his wrist. The spindly build of the character actually works well with the older figures design.

Kopaka was always my favourite, too :) Not sure what it was about him either - probably had something to do with the sword and mask designs. I miss the old figure designs.

I do like that they brought the series back, the masks are pretty good redesigns.

Kopaka always was/is/will be my favorite, with Lewa, Matoro and Jaller Mahri not far behind,

I always see Matoro and Lhikan and Jaller as my three favorites because they've all made the ultimate sacrifice at one point. Jaller sacrificed himself as a Matoran to save Takua from being killed by a Rahkshi (he was later brought back to life, but still), Toa Matoro gave his own life to awaken Mata Nui, and Turaga Lhikan saved Vakama from Makuta Teridax's Shadow Hand.
Though if I had to choose one favorite, it'd be Matoro, for he saved the entire matoran universe by allowing Mata Nui to awaken.

It looks like a Terminator Exoskeleton. You did a excellent job on
how it looks like if it was really robotic.

Sweet job man! Kopaka belonged to my older brother, but I still played with it. Therefore I count him as my first.

Toa Kopaka. The first Toa to appear in the comics.
He and Tahu were my favorites.

That first, full-page illustration of Kopaka when he emerges from the capsule was the coolest. He became my favourite because of that first issue.
