|8729 Toa Nuparu|
The Toa Nuparu set was released in mid-2006 as one of the six Toa Inika sets. The set contains fifty-four pieces, which can be combined with parts from 8728 Toa Hahli and 8730 Toa Hewkii to create Toa Jovan.
Nuparu carries a Zamor Launcher that can be used to launch the spheres included in the set. A magazine allows the launcher to hold up to four spheres at once. Uniquely among the Toa Inika, Nuparu's Zamor Launcher is shoulder-mounted. While the other Toa Inika carry their launchers in their left hands, Nuparu has claws on both hands.
When a button on Nuparu's Laser Drill is pressed, its core will flash with red light. This feature is powered by three LR41 batteries.
The Inika's structure was largely disliked among fans, as they simplified the building process in many ways and did not boast the functionality of earlier sets. In addition, the masks released that year were incompatible with all previous head pieces and could only be worn with the 2006 Inika heads. This made it impossible to give the Toa any eye color besides green without modification. As a result, nearly all Kanohi produced in subsequent years were compatible with 2004 Metru heads. This continued until the end of Generation 1 in 2010.
