Product Description

The following is a product description taken directly from LEGO. View the source here
A Dark Hunter unleashed!
Cunning, evil, and powerful, the Dark Hunter called Nidhiki has already defeated one Toa. Can the rest hope to stop him? His pincers and energy blasts can fell any foe, and he can launch Kanoka disks from his jaws. He will track the Toa Metru anywhere to see them captured and helpless!

Set Information

The Nidhiki set contains 169 pieces, and was first released in 2004. By combining its pieces with 8621 Dume & Nivawk, one could construct the Lohrak. By combining parts of both sets with 8623 Krekka, one could create the Ultimate Dume model; all three sets were also bundled within 10202 Ultimate Dume.


Nidhiki's claws can be opened and closed, and his lower legs can be flipped in or out. Flexible plastic rods hold these appendages in the desired position.

Nidhiki can be converted from an upright position to a more insectoid form by repositioning the set's limbs and torso.

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


This set includes an Onu-Metru Kanoka Disk marked with Kanoka Code 638. A second Kanoka code, 285, was included on an image of a Ga-Metru Kanoka Disk within the set's instruction manual. A physical disk with this code was never physically produced.
