Product Description

The following is a product description taken directly from LEGO. View the source here
Nothing stops the Lehvak!
The Lehvak are the only Bohrok swarm designed for combat. Using their crushing shields and dissolving spray, they exist to destroy anything that lives on Mata Nui. Clever and unpredictable, stopping the Lehvak may be the Toa's greatest challenge! With their krana removed, they are still highly difficult to tame.

Set Information

The set packaging

The Lehvak set was released in winter 2002 as one of the six Bohrok sets. The set consists of 40 pieces.

A promotional comic was included with at least some copies of the set.

By combining pieces from Lehvak with 8562 Gahlok and 8565 Kohrak, one can build a Bohrok Kaita using instructions provided at the end of the manuals for the three sets. Alternatively, Lehvak can be joined with 8562 Gahlok to create a Ghekula, or with 8563 Tahnok to create a Keras.

The set was included in 65071 Lehvak + Pahrak, 65110 Bohrok 3-Pack 2, 65128 Bohrok 3-Pack 4, 65186 Bohrok 3-Pack 5, K8563 Bohrok Swarm Kit, and K8564 Ultimate Bohrok Swarm Kit.


By pushing a button in Lehvak'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.

Lehvak can also be curled up into a ball. A piece included will clip onto Lehvak's lower back, and can be used to hang Lehvak 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 Lehvak represents the Bohrok's dormancy.


A red rubber krana, randomly chosen from one of the eight types, was included in the set.
