Product Description

Beware the poison touch of Lerahk!
From the exciting new direct-to-video movie BIONICLE: The Mask of Light, here come the Toa Nuva's greatest foes: the Rahkshi. These "sons of Makuta" have been unleashed on the island to find the Mask of Light and stop the coming of the Seventh Toa!
Lerahk uses his Staff of Power to spread poison. By ramming it into the ground, he can turn the soil toxic, and the merest scratch can infect an opponent.

Set Information

The Lerahk set was released in summer 2003 as one of the six Rahkshi sets. The set consists of forty-five pieces.

By combining pieces from Lerahk with 8588 Kurahk and 8592 Turahk, one can build the Rahkshi Kaita Za. Instructions for another model that combined pieces from Lerahk and 8588 Kurahk were included in a Kabaya-associated bundle.

A limited edition version of the set later available at Target stores contained a Shadow Kraata.

Features

By turning a knob in Lerahk's back, its torso will move from side to side, swinging its Staff of Poison.

Lerahk's canister is designed to have its decals peeled off to display the Rahkshi stored inside. The canister's bottom, when turned over, features six small holes that the peg in the bottom of a Kraata can fit into, so the Kraata can be displayed.

Some copies of the set included a Lerahk Mini Promo CD.

Collectibles

A rubber Kraata Ye, randomly chosen from one of the six main stages, was included in the set.

Some later Lerahk sets include one of the six variations of Shadow Kraata instead of the original Kraata. This limited edition set was available exclusively at Target stores.
