8743 Boggarak is a BIONICLE set released summer 2005 in most places. It is one of the six Visorak sets. It contains 47 pieces, including a Rhotuka Spinner and launcher.

Description

Boggarak was released as a canister set in the winter of 2004/2005 in Europe, and in the summer of 2005 for North America. Pieces from the set could be combined with pieces from Suukorak to make a Kahgarak, with pieces from both Suukorak and Roporak to make a Venom Flyer, and with pieces from the other five Visorak sets to make the Zivon.

A mini Boggarak was included in the Battle of Metru Nui, Visorak Battle Ram, and Tower of Toa playsets of 2005, as well as the non-canon Visorak's Gate playset released the same year. The mini Boggarak was a single piece molded in black and glow-in-the-dark plastic. Between its mandibles (which were distinct from those of the other mini Visorak breeds) was a clip by which it could be attached to “Visorak webbing” pieces included in each of the sets.

Background

The Boggarak are a species of Visorak, and the only Visorak to have three powers in their Rhotuka: They can make a target in water swell up and float to the surface, or cause a target on land to crumble to dust. They also possess the default paralysis spinner. Their natural ability is to emit sonic waves from their mouths which transmute enemies into stone or gas. These Rahi, though being poor swimmers, can swiftly “skate” atop water.

During the invasion of Metru Nui, these Visorak were fiercely loyal to Roodaka, to the point they jumped without hesitation when their Queen ordered them to leap off the Coliseum.

When Toa Vakama returned to Metru Nui in his search for the Vahi, Teridax conjured an illusion to trick him. The Makuta made a Boggarak play Nokama in this illusion. This Boggarak was later used by Teridax to distract Voporak, who merely aged the Visorak to dust.

Multi-powered menaces!

The Boggarak serve as Roodaka’s personal guards and are well-equipped for the task. Their spinners can cause enemies in water to swell up and float to the surface, or enemies on land to turn to dust. Their sonic powers can transmute solid foes to gas, making them among the most dangerous of Visorak!

  • Includes building instructions to combine with #8747 Suukorak to make Khagarak!
  • Rhotuka spinner launches up to 50 feet/15 metres!
  • Visorak measures over 7 inches/17 cm wide by 5 inches/12 cm long!
  • Jaws snap shut!


Notes

  • Pulling the ripcord out of the launcher quickly will launch the spinner.
  • Pressing down on its carapace will open and close it’s pincers.
