As a Toa Metru, Vakama carried a Disk Launcher as his Toa Tool. He selected it because the familiar weapon gave him a sense of comfort in his new body. Some of the other Toa, particularly Matau, ridiculed him for choosing an oversized Matoran weapon, but it proved its worth in its versatility.

It could have been used to channel his Fire powers, but he rarely did so, as he preferred to manifest his power in other ways. It was also used as a jetpack that was triggered by his thoughts.

The Disk Launcher was mutated into a pair of Blazer Claws when Vakama became a Toa Hordika, but was transformed back into its original form when Vakama was cured by Keetongu. It was later damaged beyond repair by the Shadowed One during Battle for the Kanohi Vahi, and was replaced with the Firestaff Vakama brought with him from Metru Nui.

Example Usage

Vakama used his Disk Launcher to launch Freeze Kanoka at the Morbuzakh. He also used its jetpack function to escape from a squad of Vahki.

Set Information

The launcher was introduced in set form in the 2004 Toa Vakama set. It could attach to pins on his back either for storage or as a jetpack.
