Masters of the sea!
The Gahlok are the trickiest Bohrok opponents – they never attack the same way twice! Able to control water, the Gahlok use tidal waves to flood Mata Nui. Remove their krana and they can be tamed.

Set Information

The Gahlok set was released in winter 2002 as one of the six Bohrok sets. The set consists of forty pieces.

By combining pieces from Gahlok with 8564 Lehvak and 8565 Kohrak, one can build the Bohrok Kaita Ja. Alternatively, Gahlok can be joined with 8564 Lehvak to create a Ghekula.


By pushing a button in Gahlok's back, its head will snap forward to attack. Doing this with the faceplate loose will also cause its Krana to shoot forward. A rubber band causes its head to retract once the attack is over.

Gahlok can also be curled up into a ball. A piece included will clip onto Gahlok's lower back, and can be used to hang Gahlok from the lid of its canister when it is in its ball shape. The canister itself is modeled after an individual cell of the Bohrok Nests, and the hanging Gahlok represents the Bohrok's dormancy.


An orange rubber Krana, randomly chosen from one of the eight types, was included in the set.
