Set Information

The set packaging for 8550

The Gahlok Va set was released in winter 2002 as one of the six Bohrok Va sets. The set consists of 26 pieces.

An identical promotional set was released in Japan as 1433 Gahlok Va by the Kabaya Foods Corporation in 2003.[citation needed] The set was packaged in a polybag, which in turn was packaged inside a box alongside a small bag of candy. The 1433 release of the set was labeled as 6+, rather than 7+ like 8550.

By combining pieces from Gahlok Va with 8551 Kohrak Va, one can build the Hapaka model using instructions published on the LEGO Club website. Additionally, Gahlok Va can be combined with 8551 Kohrak Va and 8552 Lehvak Va to create a Bohrok Va Kaita. The Kabaya version of Gahlok Va was also advertised as combining with 1431 Tahnok Va, 1432 Nuhvok Va, and 1434 Lehvak Va to create one of three possible combiners. Only one of these combiners had instructions provided.
