Set Information

The set packaging

The Toa Pohatu set was released in early 2008 as part of the "Phantoka" line and contains 68 pieces.[note 1]

Parts from Toa Pohatu can be combined with parts from 8692 Vamprah and 8697 Toa Ignika to create a Niazesk using instructions provided in the May-June 2008 issue of the LEGO BrickMaster Magazine.


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 Pohatu's back, though the set is advertised as combining with 8946 Photok.

The back of the canister featured the B.I.O code oau867.


Pohatu wears an orange Adaptive Kakama Nuva.



  • When originally listed on LEGO Shop in December of 2007, this set was title Pohatu Nuva,[3] which is also reflected in the URL of the products page.[1] It was later changed to Toa Pohatu, matching the title shown on the packaging.[7] The instructions instead label the set simply as Pohatu.
  • On some pages of the instruction manual, Pohatu's left thigh is erroneously depicted as black rather than dark gray.
