|Mighty as the earth|
Wise and powerful, Onua has huge, clawed hands to dig tunnels in the ground and infrared vision to allow him to see in the dark. Turn the wheel on his back to move his powerful arms!
Onua was released in 2001 as one of the original six Toa sets. The set consists of thirty pieces.
By combining pieces from Onua with 8531 Pohatu and 8534 Tahu, one can build Toa Kaita Akamai. The set can also be combined with 8531 Pohatu to make a Fikou.
Some Onua sets contain a Toa Mata Mini Promo CD.
The set was included in 65024 The Complete Toa Collection, K8532 Ultimate Toa Collection Kit, K8533 Find the Power Kit, and K8534 Toa Kaita Akamai, and K8554 Ultimate Bionicle Collectors Set.
Onua will swing his arms up and down when the gear on his back is turned. This function can be used to try to knock off the mask of another Toa or Rahi set.
Using technic axles and heads included 8525 BIONICLE Masks, the set's canister lid could be used for displaying masks, and as a representation of a Suva.
Onua wears a black Pakari.
8532 Onua scored a total of 82 on Brick Insights, indicating average reviews. The set was praised for its atypical design compared to most of the other Toa Mata and the utility of his function.
- Some preliminary materials, as well the parts inventory page of the instructions for Akamai , depict the set with a white eyestalk. This was likely intended to be a glow-in-the-dark piece, which was prototyped with element ID
