"Boxor Walker" Instructions


This is an alternate model portraying a different model of the Boxor, piloted by Nuparu as he appeared after being diminished by a Matoran Sphere. It is often referred to by the fan name "Boxor Walker." It has no storyline significance.

Set Information

This model can be built using pieces from 8556 Boxor. It uses 122 of the set's pieces.

Features

Turning knobs on the vehicle's back will cause its arms to move up and down.

The model also includes Nuparu, an Onu-Matoran and the inventor of the vehicle, as a pilot. Like the "Tohunga" sets released the previous year, Nuparu's arms can be pulled back and released, making them shoot back forward. Nuparu is capable of throwing a disk in this fashion, but no disk was included in the set. Any Matoran set of the 2001-2002 design can be seated in the Boxor.

Collectibles

Nuparu wears an orange Pakari.

Trivia

Unlike to main Boxor, this model of the vehicle does not use a regular Matoran arm in its construction. Therefore, the instructions feature Nuparu with one regular arm and one disk throwing arm, as opposed to two disk throwing arms as seen in the main model.
