The Power Lies Beneath!
When the Toa are exposed to the strange energies of protodermis, they are transformed into the mighty Toa Nuva! With new powers, new armor, and new tools, the Toa Nuva are fully prepared for any threat to their island home. But will the power of the Toa Nuva save Mata Nui... or shatter it forever?

Master of the molten lava!
Tahu Nuva dwells deep within the Mangai Volcano, only venturing out to protect his people from the menacing forces that plague Mata Nui. His magma swords can be attached to his feet to make a lava surfboard, for lightning-fast travel down the sides of the volcano. Turn the wheel on his back to move his arms!

Set Information

The Tahu Nuva set was released in summer 2002 as one of the six Toa Nuva sets. The set consists of thirty-six pieces.

By combining pieces from Tahu Nuva with 8566 Onua Nuva and 8568 Pohatu Nuva, one can build Akamai Nuva.


Turning a gear in Tahu Nuva's back causes him to swing his Magma Swords up and down. His Magma Swords can also be attached to his feet to act as a lavaboard.


Tahu Nuva wears a red Hau Nuva.
