Set Information

The set packaging

The set consists of eight pieces. At least three different versions of the set has been released.

It was originally included in McDonald's Happy Meals in September 2001 in the US as one of the six "Tohunga" sets. Each Happy Meal came with one of the six sets, randomly selected. The packaging labeled the set as number 4 out of 6, and and had the recommended age of 4+.

The set was also released through McDonald's in Australia during 2002. The packaging of this version featured a caution label in place of the warnings found on the American version. It also did not contain a piece count, and featured a different Happy Meals logo.

Also during 2002, it was released internationally through unknown means. This version did not contain the McDonald's branding, or the warning labels and piece count found on the American packaging, and had a recommended age of 7+ instead of the 4+ found on the McDonald's releases.

By combining pieces from Jala with 1388 Huki and 1389 Onepu, one can build a Matoran Kaita. Jala can also be combined with 1388 Huki, 1389 Onepu, 1390 Maku, 1392 Kongu, and 1393 Matoro to create a Matoran Nui.
