Set Information

The set's canister

The Tahu set was released in 2001 as one of the six Toa sets. The set consists of thirty-three pieces.

By combining pieces from Tahu with 8531 Pohatu and 8532 Onua, one can build Akamai.

Some Tahu sets contain a Toa Mata Mini Promo CD.

The set was included in 65024 The Complete Toa Collection, K8533 Find the Power Kit, K8532 Ultimate Toa Collection Kit, and K8534 Toa Kaita Akamai,[1] and K8554 Ultimate Bionicle Collectors Set.


Tahu's right arm can be swung by turning a gear in his back. 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.


Tahu wears a red Hau.


8534 Tahu scored a total of 74 on Brick Insights, indicating average reviews. The red/orange color scheme was considered a highlight, while the overall parts ratio was criticized.
