As the title states, this version of Tahu is a worthy successor to the 2001 version. He feels like an updated version of the original Tahu with some elements taken from his Nuva form (Swords that become lava board). The set is sturdy enough for play because parts won't break easily like those from the later years of Bionicle. His articulation is the same as that of other constraction sets, except he has an added gearbox that allows his arms to swing back and forth. Tahu's arms can still be posed despite the gearbox, unlike the original Toa and the Toa Nuva. My only gripe with this set is that his legs are hollow from behind, which they easily could have fixed, considering Kopaka's leg construction filled out the back of his legs. Tahu is overall a solid set and is recommended to new and old fans of Bionicle alike.

I bought 4 of these; Tahu, Kopaka, Onua, and Lord of Skull Spiders. I was very disappointed when they originally got rid of Bionicle and replaced it with Hero Factory. There are many pros and cons to Lego bringing back Bionicle. Pro, the joints and other parts are much stronger and more durable then they used to be. Con, this is really Hero Factory but with a more popular name. Con, the mask concept is just awful, I do not like the idea of it being clipped to the side of the head. The original Bionicles had their mask clipped into the face not on the sides. I ended up returning Kopaka and Onua because of the cons I found in these new "Bionicles"

    An impressive re-imagining of a toy from my childhood

    By Derek

    Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

    I can still remember being 5 years old in a Toys R Us and seeing the original Tahu- a whole new kind of lego set in a whole new line that had me hooked instantly. I loved the line, and stuck with it for years. At the time, the sets seemed fantastic but looking back... they really haven't aged well. They're great for nostalgia's sake, but they're very simple and repetitive.

    That's where this figure, and the rest of the 2015 line comes in. This is leaps and bounds ahead of the original set, upping the stakes in terms of complexity of both construction and design. Even as an adult, it was still entertaining to build, and kept my attention for long enough to be well worth the price. Once put together, it's got fantastic posability and feels very durable, both of which contribute to it either being great for a shelf display or for playing with.

    There were only two negatives I encountered. The first is that the socket extenders on mine don't move as smoothly as the unmodified sockets- though they still hold firmly and fit fine, it's just a little stiff. The other is the mask pop-off gimmick, which makes it very easy to accidentally pop off the mask, as the name would imply. It does that it's supposed to, but I feel it makes it easier to lose the somewhat small masks, making it a negative in my eyes.

    Despite a few negatives, I still wholeheartedly recommend this toy!

        Great Christmas Present

        By ItsAmber

        from Skegness

        Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

        I personally wouldn't buy this product for myself because of the price of it, and due to the fact that i have no idea about bionicle sets whatsoever. However, as my family know that i have a huge love of lego, i received this as a christmas present because they didn't know what else to get for me. Now, i have read reviews that go into detail about how it differs from previous bionicle sets, and that they are disappointed about certain points, but please excuse my lack of knowledge about this particular theme while i express just how pleased i am with this set. Firstly, i have to say, that the size of this product is much bigger than i thought it would be, when i saw the box i thought that it may be about half the size that it was but i was impressed. Then there is the fact that the colours are just beautiful, the colour combination is very good and doesn't make it look cheap and tacky like it sometimes can. In fact, it actually makes it look pretty sleek. The other thing i am very happy with is the fact that there are several ways in which Tahu can be posed, which allows for better playability when bought for kids, and just overall impressiveness when bought for display. Overall, i am over the moon with this product and i feel that it was worth the money. Very glad that i got this bought for me and it has made me consider buying other bionicle products in the future. 10/10

        First Tahu!

        By Darter

        from ithaca

        Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

        I loved Hero Factory and collected many and was sad when it was canceled. Then I saw the new Bionicles! I new I had to get him so here he is! After waiting a long time he finally came! After a nice build right away i notice that he is tall about as tall as Furno XL, and is very stiff at the ankles so I was not happy as he would not balance his feet well and you would have to move the feet to balance yourself. Anyway he has a cool function with the dual swords and surfboard! That new feature is something old fans of the line will know while new ones like me have never seen its like before. All in all it was a good deal and well worth it. Now the pros and cons. Pros: great swords cool surf board nice small swords really suited up look skull spider gold mask Cons: stiff ankles (they have the rubber connector on the ankles) shoulder pads gear function ( bionicle fans will love this but being a HF fan at first i am new and do not like it)

        I...can feel...the powaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!

        By crazychameleon11

        from Santa Ana

        Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

        Tahu is arguably the most iconic Bionicle character, being its poster boy ever since he debuted in 2001. The 2001 version had only 25 pieces, while this one has 89. He is also the tallest set of the 2015 winter wave. The problem with this set is the price. He has 89 parts, and has the lowest piece count of the three $20 Toa Sets. Gali, who is $14.99, has two less pieces than Tahu, yet Tahu is $5 more expensive than her. PLEASE NOTE: If you don't want to read the lengthy amount of stuff I've written about this set, you can skip to the bottom and read the summary. Tahu, however, makes up for that in size. As far as looks go, Tahu is very aesthetically pleasing (at least on the front). However, the backs of his lower legs are completely exposed, and look rather unsightly. His mask also possesses large chin, so, when looking at him, he looks like he doesn't have a neck. Poseability is pretty good (except for the head; he can't look down, due to the chin I mentioned earlier). The color scheme is superb, in my opinion. The gold, trans-neon orange, and red go very well together, and so does his golden mask, as it doesn't look out of place when he's wearing it. Unlike Kopaka, where you just see a flood of gold in the upper torso, shoulders, and face, the gold on Tahu is very well distributed. He also has armor on his back, something that was uncommon until the last few waves. He has two modes. In one mode, he holds two very large (but cool) lava swords, which are new for this year. His golden blades are positioned on his back. His second mode allows him to combine the two lava swords into a surfboard, and use the golden blades as weapons. Having all six of the Toa, I have to say that Tahu is my favorite. Here is a summary of why: SUMMARY: Pros: He's Tahu, who's an iconic character. Color scheme Gold Mask looks good on him Cool weapons The ability to create a "lava board" for him to surf on Size (He's the tallest of the Toa) Cons: Overpriced (though the size partially makes up for that) His head can't look down, due to his huge chin Legs are exposed on the back Overall, I would recommend this to anyone wanting to relive the nostalgia of the original Bionicle line, and also to anyone new to Bionicle. Tahu is a great place to start. If Tahu's too expensive for you, I would recommend Gali and Lewa who are $5 cheaper. Though not as large, I think that they are almost equally as good. Anyway, thanks for hearing my thoughts on this great set. See ya!

        Omega Tahu is back!

        By Tuuli

        from Helena

        Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

        Tahu, the classic toa of fire from Bionicle, is back! And he's better than ever... This time, Tahu receives a new build, that harkens back to his original form from 2001 while preserving the shiny new feel of the newer constraction sets. The colors are just what you'd expect from Tahu, red and orange! The main armor color is very vivid and appealing, which is a bright red and with added transparent orange armor "shells". He also comes with the new " bionicle shell" piece in gold, and has six of them! The lavaboard is made from two giant fire swords which really makes him just like the old Tahu we know and love. I definitely recommend this set to any old or new bionicle fan, a totally classic set that I believe will touch the hearts of our fans for many years...Buy Tahu Master of Fire today and reclaim the golden mask of power!

        Comments about LEGO Bionicle Tahu - Master of Fire (70787):

        Overall this set works really well it's stable, gear functions great, excellent play value. however there are also small flaws with this as well mainly the gappy legs the arms falling out if you arent careful and the constant possibility of either losing pieces overall though its a serious step up from 2001 and better than Stars for sure
