Product Description

The following is a product description taken directly from LEGO. View the source here
Wielder of the plasma shield!
Six reasons to hide!
From the depths of Mata Nui, they came... six elite Bohrok, the Bohrok-Kal, with one mission: to free the Bohrok queens and unleash the swarms again! Only the Toa Nuva stand in their way... but the Bohrok-Kal have stolen the elemental powers of the heroes, leaving them helpless. Will the Toa Nuva's first adventure be their last?

Pahrak-Kal may move slowly, but nothing dares to get in its way! Its plasma shield can superheat rock, metal, or any other substance and reduce it to molten liquid. Nothing can stop Pahrak-Kal as it searches for the swarm queens! Look for 72 Limited Edition genuine Sterling Silver Krana-Kal and 5,000 Limited Edition silver-colored metal versions in Bohrok-Kal packages. They're randomly packed so you never know where the power of Silver might be found (not available in Europe)!

Set Information

The Pahrak-Kal set was released in winter 2003 as one of the six Bohrok-Kal sets. The set consists of forty pieces.

By combining pieces from Pahrak-Kal with 8573 Nuhvok-Kal and 8574 Tahnok-Kal, one can build the Bohrok-Kal Kaita Za.

Combination Models

Pahrak-Kal is involved in one combination model, the fewest of this year's sets. It is the:

Bohrok-Kal Kaita Za


By pushing a button in Pahrak-Kal's back, its head will snap forward to attack. A rubber band causes its head to retract once the attack is over. Pressing its eyes will cause its krana-kal to shoot forward.

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

Early copies of the set included a Pahrak-Kal Mini Promo CD.


A gunmetal gray rubber krana-kal, randomly chosen from one of the eight types, was included in the set.

Pahrak-Kal sets potentially carried one of 72 sterling silver Krana Xa-Kal or one of 5000 white metal Krana Xa-Kal, along with a certificate of authenticity.
