8745 Roporak is a BIONICLE set released in late 2004 in some places but early 2005 in most. It contains a Roporak, a breed of Visorak.

Description[edit]

8745 Roporak was released along with the other five Visorak in the spring of 2005 for European countries, and in the fall for North America. It contains 48 pieces, including a Rhotuka and Rhotuka launcher. Parts from the set could be combined with parts from 8746 Keelerak to make a Chute Lurker, with 8747 Suukorak and 8743 Boggarak to make a Venom Flyer, and the other five Visorak sets to make the Zivon.

A mini Roporak figure was included in the Battle of Metru Nui, Visorak Battle Ram, Tower of Toa, and Visorak's Gate playsets of 2005, all canon except the last of the four. Blended from black and glow-in-the-dark plastic, it featured mandibles distinct from those of the other mini Visorak pieces. A clip between the mandibles allowed it to attach to Visorak webbing pieces included in all four sets.

Background[edit]

The Roporak are a species of Visorak, and are best suited for underground hunts and chases. Like all Visorak, they also have a default paralysis Rhotuka power for immobilizing foes and prey. Roporak are the master spies of the Visorak horde, using their chameleon power to blend in with their surroundings and become virtually invisible. In battle, they usually attack over long distances, using Rhotuka spinners with a disrupter power that drains energy from the target. Roporak are extremely cautious fighters, preferring to wait until a foe has been weakened by others before striking.

The Roporak were commanded by Vakama to disband and leave Metru Nui after the Great Cataclysm, and are now scattered across the Matoran Universe.
