"The [Mata Nui Cow] is a placid animal that lives in herds on the plains of Mata Nui. Although peaceful by nature, it is quick to react to danger. Opponents would be wise to beware the [Mata Nui Cow's] horns and hooves, which it can wield with surprising speed!"
— LEGO Mania Magazine
|Mata Nui Cow|
The Mata Nui Cow is a peaceful bovine Rahi.
After the Great Cataclysm, the population of Cows that lived in Metru Nui migrated to the grassy plains found on the newly-formed island of Mata Nui. These Cows returned to Metru Nui after the Bohrok swarms were awakened to cleanse the island. They have since emigrated to Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Though naturally gentle, the Mata Nui Cow becomes considerably more formidable when faced with danger, taking advantage of its sturdy horns and hooves which it quickly adopts as natural weapons.
The Mata Nui Cow can be built using parts from Toa Mata sets Gali and Pohatu. Spinning a gear on its back causes its front legs to alternately move back and forth. Instructions could be found in a 2001 LEGO Mania Magazine (now simply LEGO Magazine) or on the LEGO Club website.
- The Mata Nui Cow was designed by LEGO employee Daniel Lipkowitz.
- It was originally called the Mukau (a pun on "Moo-Cow"), but it has not been called by this name since 2001. The name was taken out of canon because the story team head considered it too silly.
