Set Information

The set's canister

The set comes with 19 pieces and was released in early 2010. The set is a reimagining of 8534 Tahu.

It is possible to have Tahu wear the full set of Golden Armor by using the golden pieces included in all of the Stars sets. Five of Tahu's parts are replaced by the golden Hau included in the set and the Golden Armor pieces packaged with four of the other Stars sets, 7117 Gresh, 7135 Takanuva, 7136 Skrall, 7137 Piraka. Finally, the armor is completed by adding a shield piece that comes with 7138 Rahkshi. This form was advertised as a Golden BIONICLE or Golden Toa. Tahu and the other five Stars sets can be used to create Gaardus.


Tahu with the completed Golden Armor


The set includes a red and a gold Adaptive Kanohi Hau, the latter representing the Golden Armor Hau.


7116 Tahu's score on Brick Insights indicates average reviews. Reviewers noted the set's ability to capture the original image of 8534 Tahu, but the simplicity and piece count were criticized.
