The Power Lies Beneath!
When the Toa are exposed to the strange energies of protodermis, they are transformed into the mighty Toa Nuva! With new powers, new armor, and new tools, the Toa Nuva are fully prepared for any threat to their island home. But will the power of the Toa Nuva save Mata Nui... or shatter it forever?

Ruler of the air!
Lewa Nuva lives in the jungles near Kauae Bay, keeping watch on Mata Nui from above. His swords can be used to clear obstacles – and when they are attached to his arms and legs, they form katana that allow him to soar above the island! Turn the wheel on his back to move his arms.

Set Information

The set's canister

The Lewa Nuva set was released in summer 2002 as one of the six Toa Nuva sets. The set consists of thirty-eight pieces.[note 1]

In addition to the parts necessairy to build Lewa Nuva, the set included three ball pieces which were used in the combiner model Wairuha Nuva, built by combining pieces from Lewa Nuva with 8570 Gali Nuva and 8571 Kopaka Nuva.

Features

Turning a gear in Lewa Nuva's back causes him to swing his Air Katana up and down. The set could be configured with both arms connected to the gear system, or with one arm being able to be rotated freely using an axle-pin. In the latter case, a left-over 3-length axle and small gear could be used to lock the gear function.

Unlike the other Toa Nuva, Lewa Nuva did not feature an alternate configuration for his weapons, but could be posed to hold his blades as wings for flying.

Collectibles

Lewa Nuva wears a green Miru Nuva.

Notes

However, the inventory of available through LEGO Customer Service contains 32, with six pieces missing: The head, eyestalk, mask, torso, and the arms. Should those piece be included, the total piece count would be 38, matching the contents of the sealed set and indicating no parts in the set are "extra". Additionally, pieces not used in the main model are used in the combiner model, Wairuha Nuva.
