Shortcut: 8538 (Alternate)
This is an alternate model introduced in 2001, portraying a Kuma-Nui.
The Kuma-Nui can be built using parts from 8538 Muaka & Kane-ra. A total of 461 pieces are used in the model.
Squeezing the Kuma-Nui's midsection causes it to thrust its head forward while opening its mouth and then snapping it shut.
Each of the model's arms is held together by a long pin with a Kanohi, and pulling out a pin causes its respective arm to fall off as if in injury.
The pins attaching the Kuma-Nui's arms to its body each feature an Infected Hau.
