Product Description

The following is a product description taken directly from LEGO. View the source here
Nothing can stand before Guurahk!
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!
Guurahk's Staff of Power can cause objects to fragment and collapse into rubble. He will bring down the entire island of Mata Nui in his search for the Mask of Light, unless the Toa Nuva can stop him!

Set Information

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

By combining pieces from Guurahk with 8587 Panrahk and 8591 Vorahk, one can build the Rahkshi Kaita Vo. Two near-identical unofficial models were featured in Asian and Korean LEGO magazines, respectively. The Asian one did not have instructions released, but was featured in the Builder's Section. The major differences between these models are the use of Panrahk or Turahk, and the placement of Guurahk's parts.

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


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

Guurahk'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 Guurahk Mini Promo CD.


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

Some later Guurahk 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.
