Product Description

The following is a product description taken directly from LEGO. View the source here
Power of the Vahki!
Racing across the Sculpture Fields of Po-Metru, the Zadakh always catch their prey. The most powerful Vahki, they are always the first into a fight and the last standing. Zadakh Staffs of Suggestion leave a Matoran very suggestible, and willing to follow orders from almost anyone. Includes Kanoka disk launcher and glow-in-the-dark disk.

Set Information

The Zadakh set was released in late 2004 as one of six Vahki sets. The set contains thirty-three pieces. By combining its pieces with those from 8615 Bordakh and 8619 Keerakh, one can create the Kraahu.

Features

By turning a gear on Zadakh's back, its staffs will swing back and forth.

A Zardakh can be converted from a bipedal form to a spider-like quadrupedal form by repositioning its limbs.

Kanoka disks can be launched from a Kanoka Launcher embedded in Zadakh's mouth. The included disk also glows in the dark.

Collectibles

The set includes a Po-Metru Kanoka Disk marked with Kanoka Code 334.

It also contains a printed card, folded in two, that depicts a Zadakh-themed Kanoka on the front, a Metru Nui picture and a longer Kanoka Club code written inside, and an indication that the code worth 180 points as well as instructions on how to use the Kanoka Club in 4 different languages on the back.

Late releases at U.S. Target stores included gold copies of the Kanohi Vahi and the Disk of Time, but no Po-Metru Kanoka.
