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?

Strength and speed combined!
Pohatu Nuva's awesome might and blazing speed make him one of the most powerful of the Toa Nuva! His climbing claws help him scale any peak, and can be combined to form his legendary Kodan ball. Turn the wheel on his back to move his mighty arms.

Set Information

The Pohatu Nuva set was released in summer 2002 as one of the six Toa Nuva sets. The set consists of forty-three pieces.

By combining pieces from Pohatu Nuva with 8566 Onua Nuva and 8572 Tahu Nuva, one can build Akamai Nuva.


Turning a gear in Pohatu Nuva's back causes him to swing his right leg in a kicking motion. His Climbing Claws can also be combined to form a Kodan Ball.


Pohatu Nuva wears a brown Kakama Nuva.
