8531 Pohatu is a BIONICLE set released in 2001. It contains a BIONICLE model of Pohatu, the Toa Mata of stone, and a boulder.

Set Information[edit]

Pohatu was released three times: in 2001 as a Toa Mata, 2002 as a Toa Nuva, and again as a Phantoka in 2008, each time as a canister set.

Pohatu Mata's weapons were additions that went on his feet, and when you turned a gear on his back, his leg would kick. As a Toa Nuva, he was equipped with Nuva Armour and claws, which could be formed to create the Kodan Ball. As a Phantoka, Pohatu had a Midak Skyblaster and weapons that tripled as propellers, claws, and drills.

Pohatu's Toa Mata and Toa Nuva's figure had its torso built upside down for his legs to move instead of his arms. Turning the gear on his back will cause his legs to rotate.

Notes[edit]

  • Two versions of this set were released: One with a mini CD and one without.
  • The LEGO.com description says the knob moves his arms, but in the set, the legs move when the knob is turned, not the arms.

LEGO.com Description[edit]

Pohatu, the Toa of stone, is respected by all for his sheer power. The strongest of the heroes, he can kick massive boulders out of his way, cause landslides, and much more. Turn the wheel on his back to move his mighty arms.
