Product Description

Fear the Turahk!
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!
Never before have the Toa Nuva faced such a terrifying foe! Turahk's staff can create fear in an opponent, paralyzing him with terror or making him run away. Even the heroes of Mata Nui cannot resist the fear Turahk brings!

Set Information

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

By combining pieces from Turahk with 8588 Kurahk and 8589 Lerahk, one can build the Rahkshi Kaita Za. Instructions for another model that combined pieces from Turahk and 8587 Panrahk 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 Turahk's back, its torso will move from side to side, swinging its Staff of Fear.

Turahk'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 Turahk Mini Promo CD.

Collectibles

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

Some later Turahk 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.
