Set 8730 Toa Hewkii is a canister set released in mid-2006 portraying Toa Hewkii, the Toa Inika of Stone.

Set Information

The Toa Hewkii set was released in early 2006 as one of the six Toa Inika sets. The set contains sixty-two pieces, which can be combined with parts from 8728 Toa Hahli and 8729 Toa Nuparu to create Toa Jovan.

Features

Hewkii 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.

When a button on Hewkii's Laser Axe is pressed, its core will flash with red light. This feature is powered by three LR41 batteries.

Hewkii is additionally equipped with a climbing chain.

Collectibles

Hewkii wears a titanium-colored Great Kanohi Sanok. The set also contains four red-orange Zamor Spheres.

Community Response

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.

Trivia

  • Toa Hewkii was the first Stone-associated set that was not primarily brown in color. This change was made due to historically poor sales of brown sets. Future Stone sets would follow this trend, featuring yellow or orange instead of brown, until the tan Vorox and Zesk debuted in 2009.
