Set Information

The Toa Nuparu set was released in mid-2006 as one of the six Toa Inika sets. The set contains fifty-four pieces, which can be combined with parts from 8728 Toa Hahli and 8730 Toa Hewkii to create Toa Jovan.


Nuparu carries a Zamor Launcher that can be used to launch the spheres included in the set. A magazine allows the launcher to hold up to four spheres at once. Uniquely among the Toa Inika, Nuparu's Zamor Launcher is shoulder-mounted. While the other Toa Inika carry their launchers in their left hands, Nuparu has claws on both hands.

When a button on Nuparu's Laser Drill is pressed, its core will flash with red light. This feature is powered by three LR41 batteries.


Nuparu wears a black Great Kanohi Kadin. The set also contains four red-orange Zamor Spheres.
