Set Information

The set packaging

The Nui-Jaga set was released in 2001 as one of the five Rahi sets. The set consists of 218 pieces.

Two Nui-Jaga are built from the set. One is medium blue, and the other is purple.

An alternate model for the set also exists, depicting a Kahu. Instructions for the model were included in the manual for the purple Nui-Jaga.


Each Nui-Jaga has a trigger on their underside. Pulling this trigger causes their stinger tails to snap forward.

The set includes four unused rubber bands.


The Nui-Jaga each wear two Pakari on their claws. The light blue Nui-Jaga has two light blue Pakari, and the purple Nui-Jaga has two purple Pakari.
