|A menace from below!|
The Nuhvok are the tunnelers of the Bohrok, using the power of their shields to blow up rock and blast passages through the earth. They even have the power to bring down a mountain! Although their reactions are slow, they are dangerously fierce when cornered. When their krana is removed, they can be put to work rebuilding what they have destroyed.
The Nuhvok set was released in winter 2002 as one of the six Bohrok sets. The set consists of forty pieces.
By combining pieces from Nuhvok with 8560 Pahrak and 8563 Tahnok, one can build 8560+8561+8563 "Bohrok Kaita Za". Nuhvok can also be combined with 8565 Kohrak to create 8561+8565 "Fusion Bohrok".
By pushing a button in Nuhvok's back, its head will snap forward to attack. Doing this with the faceplate loose will also cause its Krana to shoot forward. A rubber band causes its head to retract once the attack is over.
Nuhvok can also be curled up into a ball. A piece included will clip onto Nuhvok's lower back, and can be used to hang Nuhvok from the lid of its canister when it is in its ball shape. The canister itself is modeled after an individual cell of the Bohrok Nests, and the hanging Nuhvok represents the Bohrok's dormancy.
A lime green rubber Krana, randomly chosen from one of the eight types, was included in the set.
