Set Information

The set packaging

The Whenua set was released in 2001 as one of the six Turaga sets. The set consists of 28 pieces, including a spare rubber band.

By combining pieces from Whenua with 8540 Vakama, 8541 Matau, 8542 Onewa, 8543 Nokama, and 8544 Nuju, one can build a Turaga Nui, though official instructions were never released.

The set was included in K8531 Ultimate Toa and Turaga Collection Kit, K8533 Find the Power Kit, and KC501 Turaga Collector's Kit, and could be included randomly packaged in K8532 Ultimate Toa Collection Kit.


A lever is present on Whenua's back, connected to his right arm, so lowering it causes him to lift his Drill of Onua. The arm is automatically lowered due to a rubber band connecting the lever to his neck.


Whenua wears a dark gray Noble Ruru.


8545 Whenua's score on Brick Insights indicates poor reviews.
