The set includes a Thornax Launcher, Thornax ammunition, and life counter for use in the BIONICLE Action Figure Game. Additionally, Telluris's own life counter mount, comprising five pieces, is moved from Telluris to the rear of the vehicle as the rider is being attached. Also included in the set are two Force Blasters, each of which is loaded with four silver "force spheres" as ammunition. The mandibles also open when the backs of the outer pincers are squeezed together, and snap shut by means of a rubber band.
