    Description: In the darkest moments of the struggle against the Bohrok, an Onu-Koro Matoran named Nuparu made an astounding discovery. The Bohrok, he learned, are not living creatures -- instead, they are biomechanical creations designed to transport the krana. Using this knowledge, and parts from a downed Bohrok, Nuparu constructed the Boxor vehicle. This rugged transport gives the Matoran added power against the Bohrok Va, and a large number of Boxors can even defend successfully against a squad of Bohrok.

    Notes
    The Boxor was created after a Gahlok attack on Onu-Koro from the fallen Bohrok, with the help of Taipu and Onepu. The result was a fast, powerful machine which has proven highly effective against Bohrok Va. In large enough numbers, Boxor vehicles can even stall a Bohrok swarm for a short time! The Boxor's legs are linked by a series of elastic bands and gears to its arms - a Matoran controls the striking action of the Boxor. In addition to being powerful, the Boxor is very rugged and durable.

    The Boxor was instrumental in many key battles against the Bohrok. Boxors were present at the battle of Ga-Koro and when the Le-Matoran were freed from the Swarms, among many others.

    This is also the only Matoran set widely available which is not of the "rebuilt" Mask of Light variety: most of the rest of the others were given away in a McDonald’s promotion and are no longer available, and Hafu (included with the Power Pack) has always been rather difficult to find.
