Set Information

The Toa Whenua set was released in early 2004 as one of the six Toa Metru sets. The set consists of forty-nine pieces.

By combining pieces from Toa Whenua with 8602 Toa Nokama and 8606 Toa Nuju, one can build the Kraawa. Another combiner model, Krahka, can be built using pieces from all six Toa Metru sets.


By turning a knob in Whenua's back, his Earthshock Drills will swing up and down. The Earthshock Drills could also be attached together using an angled connector to form a single, larger drill.

The lid of Toa Whenua's canister can be attached to the lid of another Toa Metru set's canister to form a Matoran Sphere.

Some copies of the set included Whenua's Toa Metru Mini Promo CD.


Whenua wears a black Great Ruru.
