8740 Toa Hordika Matau is a BIONICLE set released in 2005. He is a Toa Hordika. He has two Fang Blades as weapons and a Rhotuka Spinner with a Launcher on his back. In the BIONICLE universe, he was the Toa Metru of Air, but later was mutated into a Toa Hordika. He eventually became a Turaga.
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?
Half Toa, half monster, Matau must decide between saving the Matoran and saving himself. His fang blades can slice through webs and cables, as well as charge up his Rhotuka wind spinner.
New feature! Pull the ripcord to send the Rhotuka spinner flying!
Includes instructions to build a Rahi rock raptor with #8739 and #8740!
Pulling the ripcord out of the launcher quickly will launch the spinner.
