He strikes from the shadows!
The six Toa Metru returned to the city of Metru Nui, intending to save the sleeping Matoran and bring them to their new home. Ambushed by Visorak spiders, the Toa Metru are mutated into Hordika ... half Toa, half beast! Can they overcome their new enemies and their own bestial natures in time to rescue the Matoran?

Toa Hordika Whenua has seen the Archives shattered and beasts of every kind released on Metru Nui. Now he must fight to save the Rahi from extinction. His tools can summon beasts from far underground, or charge up his Rhotuka earth spinner.

*New feature! Pull the ripcord to send the Rhotuka spinner flying!
*Includes instructions to build a Rahi cable crawler with #8738 and #8736!!

Set Info

The Toa Hordika Whenua set was released as one of six Toa Hordika sets in early 2005, and contains forty-eight pieces.

By combining parts of Toa Hordika Whenua with 8736 Toa Hordika Vakama and 8740 Toa Hordika Matau, one can create the Protocairn; Vakama and Whenua alone can be combined to create the Cable Crawler.


A Rhotuka spinner can be launched from Whenua's back by using a ripcord included with the set.

Whenua's right forearm can be moved up and down by turning a gear near his shoulder.


Whenua wears a black mutated Great Kanohi Ruru. The set also includes two silver Rhotuka spinners, one of which is marked with a Kanoka Code.
