    Set Name: Tahu
    Toa of Fire
    MSRP (USD): 6.99
    Primary Color: Red
    Availability: Retired
    Year Released: 2001
    Piece Count: 33
    Ages: 7+
    Alternate Set(s): Akamai
    Description: Tahu is the fiercest of the six Toa, and the most feared--you don't want to get into a fight with Tahu if you can help it. He is most at home in the hot molten world of the Mangai Volcano where he surfs on lava flows, using his sword of flames to cut through rocks and keep the lava moving towards the ocean. His flaming temper can make him hotheaded and irrational sometimes. He has the least patience of the Toa and often jumps into a situation without thinking, which can get him, and the other Toa, into trouble!

    Storyline Information for 8534 Tahu
    Character Type: Toa Mata
    Classification: Good Guy
    Collectible(s) included: Kanohi
    Relative Importance: Main Character
    Main Power: Fire
    Tool Name: Firesword
    Primary Location: Ta-Koro
    Island: Mata Nui

    After being summoned by Takua, Tahu arrived on Mata Nui with little memory of his past life. After he met the other Toa Mata, they proceeded to collect the Great Masks scattered around the island. Once they had accomplished this, Tahu, Onua, and Pohatu merged into Akamai, the Toa Kaita of Valor to face the Makuta. After they defeated him, he unleashed the Bohrok swarms onto the island. Tahu and the others were then forced to collect every breed of Krana to unlock the Exo-Toa, so that they could face the Bahrag queens. After defeating and imprisoning them, Tahu and the other Toa were plunged into energized protodermis and transformed into Toa Nuva.

    Tahu is the leader of the Toa Mata and takes this position very seriously, but sometimes lets it go to his head. He is very brave and fiercely protective of his friends. Tahu normally wears the Kanohi Hau, the Great Mask of Shielding.
