Set Information

The set packaging

The Protector of Stone was revealed at New York Comic Con 2014 during the BIONICLE panel, and officially released on the first day of 2015 in the United States and some European countries. The set consists of 73 pieces,[note 1] including a Protector mask and a Skull Spider.

The weapons of the Protector can be added onto 70785 Pohatu – Master of Stone to create a "powered-up" Pohatu. Both of these sets were included in collection 5004465 Protector of Stone – Power Up, to create the aforementioned model.


By turning the Elemental Blaster that is held in the Protector's hands, round LEGO 1x1 studs are launched. The blaster is able to hold six studs, though twelve are included in the set.

By pushing down the eyestalk on the back of the set's head, its mask will fly off.


A co-injected dark orange and transparent neon green Protector mask and a dark blue Skull Spider mask are included in the set.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The set packaging lists the set as including 67 pieces. However, on LEGO Shop, the set was listed as including 73 pieces, counting the six extra stud ammunition included in the set (for a total of twelve studs, not including "spare" parts). These pieces were also not included in the bill of materials of the instruction manual, but are present in the set's inventory on LEGO Bricks & Pieces. In later waves, extra ammunition such as these would consistently be counted into the set, such as with set 70791 Skull Warrior.
