Set Information

The McDonald's version of the set packaging

The set was included in McDonald's Happy Meals in September 2001 as one of the six "Tohunga" sets. Each Happy Meal came with one of the six sets, randomly selected. The set consists of eight pieces.

The set was also one of twelve sets given away for free in C1000 supermarkets in Holland during 2003.[1] This version of the polybag featured the same set number, but lacked the McDonald's co-branding, and the instructions advertised the Rahkshi.

An identical set, 40551 Huki, was released under a partnership between LEGO and Voira in Lithuania. This set was packaged in a box, rather than a polybag like the McDonald's release of the set.[2]

By combining pieces from Huki with 1389 Onepu and 1391 Jala, one can build a Matoran Kaita. Huki can also be combined with 1389 Onepu, 1390 Maku, 1391 Jala, 1392 Kongu, and 1393 Matoro to create a Matoran Nui.

Features

Huki's arms can be pulled back and released, making them shoot back forward. His right hand is capable of holding a Bamboo Disk, and doing this while he is holding the disk causes him to throw it. The disk could also be stored on his back.

Collectibles

Huki wears a dark orange Kakama. Also included is a Bamboo Disk featuring Pohatu's Kanohi Kakama and the mask's name.

Reception

1388 Huki scored a 74 on Brick Insights, indicating mixed or average reviews.
