8736 Toa Hordika Vakama is a BIONICLEset released in January2005. He is one of the Toa Hordika. He has two Blazer Claws in his hands and a Rhotuka spinner and launcher on his back. He is red with green eyes. In the BIONICLE universe, he was a Toa of Fire. Of all the Toa, he was the most comfortable in his new form and eventually let his Rahi side take over.
The six Toa Metru returned to the city of Metru Nui, intending to save the sleeping Matoran and bring them to their new home. Ambushed by Visorak spiders, the Toa Metru are mutated into Hordika ... half Toa, half beast! Can they overcome their new enemies and their own bestial natures in time to rescue the Matoran?
Toa Hordika Vakama fights to lead his team of Toa on the most dangerous mission of their lives, while trying to contain the beast within himself! His Rhotuka fire spinner can burn through any obstacle, and his blazer claws can charge it up to even greater power.
New feature! Pull the ripcord to send the Rhotuka spinner flying!
Includes instructions to build a Rahi cable crawler with #8736 and #8738!
In the movie, BIONICLE 3: Web of Shadows, Vakama's eyes were a red-orange, until he falls to his Rahi side when they become green.
