Set Information

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

By combining pieces from Toa Matau with 8601 Toa Vakama and 8604 Toa Onewa, one can build the Kralhi. Another combiner model, Krahka, can be built using pieces from all six Toa Metru sets.


By turning a knob in Matau's back, his Aero Slicers will swing up and down. The Aero Slicers could also attach to pins on Matau's back either for use as glider wings or for storage.

The lid of Toa Matau'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 Matau's Toa Metru Mini Promo CD.


Matau wears a dark green Great Mahiki.
