Set Information

The set packaging

The Toa Lewa set was released in early 2008 as part of the "Phantoka" line, and contains 52 pieces.[note 1]

Parts from Toa Lewa be combined with parts from 8944 Tanma, 8691 Antroz, and 8947 Radiak to create Makuta Spiriah.

The set was included in K8685 Phantoka Collection.


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 Lewa's back, though the set is advertised as combining with 8944 Tanma.

The back of the canister featured the B.I.O code wal886.


The set includes a lime green Adaptive Miru Nuva.



  • When originally listed on LEGO Shop in December of 2007, this set was title Lewa Nuva,[3] which is also reflected in the URL of the products page.[1] It was later changed to Toa Lewa, matching the title shown on the packaging.[8] The instructions instead label the set simply as Lewa.
