Hail, Hail! The Gang's All Here!
Mark: Here they are: KOPEKE, MATORO, HAHLI, HEWKII, HAFU, and MACKU from the individual MATORAN sets (8581 8586) and JALLER and TAKUA from their larger sets (8594 and 8595).





As you can probably tell from the pictures, all eight MATORAN have identical construction. They also all have the same general color scheme: the torso, shoulders, and arms are one color (shared among MATORAN from the same KORO) and the hands, hips, feet, and mask are all one contrasting color. HAHLI and TAKUA are slight exceptions in that their masks do not exactly match the color of their extremities.

I said "The Gang's All Here", because these are all of the MATORAN currently available. Notably absent however are any MATORAN from LE-KORO (KONGU and TAMARU) or ONU-KORO (TAIPU, ONEPU, and NUPARU).

KANOHI-deficient collectors will be glad to get their hands on many of these masks which were previously difficult to come by. Of particular interest are HEWKII's mask (because of the popular M-Wing MOC) and HAFU's mask. HAFU's mask was originally a European misprint (available only in Europe in early 8530 KANOHI bags) and then showed up in the hard-to-find PowerPack.

Of course if you already had these masks and you were hoping they would increase in value, then you have missed your chance. The entire HAFU set sells for about one-third of what the Black RURU alone was previously worth.
