The Rhotuka Launching Shield in set form
The set function of the Rhotuka Launching Shield

Rhotuka Launching Shields are shields wielded by Toa, including the Toa Hagah previously assigned to guard Makuta Teridax. The tools are used both for defense and for launching Rhotuka.[1]

When the Toa Hagah were transformed into Rahaga, their shields were transformed into mounted Rhotuka Launchers.[1][2][3] The launchers later regained their shield forms when Roodaka transformed the Rahaga back into Toa.[4][5]

Example Usage

In Dwellers In Darkness, Norik used his Rhotuka Launching Shield to fire his slowness spinner at the Kanohi Dragon.

Set Information

In the Special Edition Toa Hagah sets, the shields included two places for Rhotuka. The top half of the shield constituted the actual launcher, fitted with an Elementally-colored Spinner. The bottom half held an inactive Rhotuka that matched the shield's metallic color.
