The shield in the comics.

The Razor-Edged Protosteel Shield is one of Toa Mahri Nuparu's Toa Tools. It was transformed from the Laser Drill and his Claws into its current form by the Ignika. It is made of Protosteel. Nuparu can use this shield to channel his Earth powers, protect himself from attacks, and cut through many things with its sharp edges.[1] The Razor-Edged Protosteel Shield has the ability to fold upon itself for storage purposes.[2]

Example Usage

In BIONICLE: Toa Mahri, Nuparu used the Razor-Edged Protosteel Shield to block a Sea Squid launched by Gadunka.

Set Information

The Razor-Edged Protosteel Shield was released in summer 2007 with the Toa Mahri Nuparu set. The top and bottom halves of the shield were depicted with two identical pieces, one attached to each side of his right hand.


  • According to Brian Ellis, the designer of 8913 Toa Nuparu, the Razor-Edged Protosteel Shield was intended to be a double-bladed, asymmetrical sword, but because of the cost limitations and the fact that it was a large piece, it had to be doubled, and the asymmetrical nature was cut. The central hub of the blade/sword would have absorbed energy and then released it as a blast.[3] Based on that description, it can be assumed that Greg Farshtey probably based the Aqua Blaster Blade on that function, and he was never told that it belonged to the shield and not a separate, cut weapon.
