|Masters of the flame!|
The Tahnok are the most aggressive and destructive of all the Bohrok swarms! They use their mastery of fire to burn and melt whatever's in their way. Even with their krana removed, Tahnok are hard to tame. Can the Toa stop them before they turn Mata Nui into ash?
The Tahnok set was released in winter 2002 as one of the six Bohrok sets. The set consists of forty pieces.
By combining pieces from Tahnok with 8560 Pahrak and 8561 Nuhvok, one can build the Bohrok Kaita Za. Alternatively, Tahnok can be joined with 8564 Lehvak to create a Keras.
By pushing a button in Tahnok'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.
Tahnok can also be curled up into a ball. A piece included will clip onto Tahnok's lower back, and can be used to hang Tahnok 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 Tahnok represents the Bohrok's dormancy.
A blue rubber Krana, randomly chosen from one of the eight types, was included in the set.
