Set Information

The summer edition

The set contains 148 pieces. 19 of these are used to build Fero, with the remaining 129 being used for Skirmix.

The set can be combined with 8979 Malum to create a Sand Stalker.

The set has several variations. The original winter wave version of the set includes transparent neon green eye pieces, which in the US was sold exclusively at Wal-Mart[citation needed] and was marketed as a "Special Edition" set.[1][2] A summer wave version of the set (promoting BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn) was released with slightly altered packaging and included transparent green eyes instead.[citation needed]


Fero wields a Thornax Launcher and can be attached to Skirmix's back with a red axle. Fero shares Skirmix's "life counter" in the BIONICLE Action Figure Game. In the game, his life counter is reduced by two life points if Fero rather than Skirmix is struck by an opponent's Thornax.


Fero wears a Skrall helmet.
