In addition to the KRANA, each 8569 KRANA BOX includes two previously-unavailable KANOHI. For my shipment of 32 boxes, each box contained one SILVER KANOHI and one GOLD KANOHI. If you click on the picture above, you will see in addition to the twelve precious-metal marvels: a COPPER HUNA, a SILVER RUA (HAU), and my GOLD WEDDING BAND for color reference.

As you can see, the 8569 KANOHI are not as shiny as the SILVER RUA. They are created in a fashion similar to the COPPER HUNA and COPPER KOMAU. The gold color is more yellow than the copper color (but still less yellow than real gold), whereas the copper color has more purple. The silver color resembles a brushed aluminum or stainless steel with a gloss coat.

The MIRU were particularly likely to come out of the box covered in glue, especially on their beaks. Fortunately, the glue is easily removed from the masks and KRANA without damaging them.

Theoretically, I could have had five complete sets of the twelve KANOHI. In reality, I ended up with only two complete sets. The GOLD PAKARI were the limiting factor. I have four or more of all of the other masks, as shown here in this full accounting:
