Collect the Masks of Power!
The Masks of Power add to the skills and wisdom of the Toa. Each Toa must collect six Great Masks of Power in their own color before challenging the might of Makuta! The set contains two masks, plus a head and pole for display.

Set Information

The Kanohi set includes one randomly packed Great Kanohi Mask, one randomly packed Noble Kanohi Mask, and pieces needed to make a head to mount them on (a headpiece, a randomly-colored eyepiece, a three-stud axle to mount the head on, and a second, spare three-stud axle). The set consists of six pieces in total.

Set 8525 was released in North America, and came in a box. Two additional versions were released in Europe, one in a box and one in a polybag; the polybag could come in several different eye colors on the packaging, referencing the eyestalk colors of the set. Both of these releases had the set number 8530.
