Set Information

The set packaging

The Toa Kopaka set was released in early 2008 as part of the "Phantoka" line, and set contains 54 pieces.[note 1]

Toa Kopaka is the only one of the 2008 Toa Nuva sets not to be used for a combiner model.


The set includes a Midak Skyblaster and four silver Zamor Spheres to serve as ammunition.

Several of the smaller 2008 figures can be mounted on Kopaka's back, though the set is advertised as combining with 8945 Solek.

The back of the canister featured the B.I.O code kpk858.


Kopaka wears a white Adaptive Akaku Nuva.



  • When originally listed on LEGO Shop in December of 2007, this set was title Kopaka Nuva,[3] which is also reflected in the URL of the products page.[1] It was later changed to Toa Kopaka, matching the title shown on the packaging.[7] The instructions instead label the set simply as Kopaka.
  • The packaging for the set uses the off-white color from 8905 Thok, though the primary color of the set itself is standard white.
  • In the instructions and the Phantoka Mini Movie, Kopaka holds his Midak Skyblaster from the back with his right hand, while most other renditions including the box art, product image, the promotional render showcasing his combination with Solek, and the page of the instructions showing the same combination have him holding it with his left hand.
  • The orientation of Kopaka's forearms differ between renditions of the set. The instructions and packaging artwork show the "hollow" side facing forwards, while the promotional render of his combination with Solek, and the product image, they're oriented the opposite way.
