02137-1 BIONICLE® Nui-Jaga and Makuta

Every hero, even a smaller one, needs a foe to fight with. I present to you the battle opponents for Tahu and Takua from the latest LEGO® GWP — 02137-1 BIONICLE® Nui-Jaga and Makuta set!

This is a fan-created set that you can download the instructions and stickers for and build yourself! All the pieces used are available for purchase at Bricklink.com, and they are all quite common and easy to get. Only legal building techniques were used!

The set contains a poseable brick-built scorpion-like Rahi Nui-Jaga (based on its appearance in the 8548 Nui-Jaga set from 2001) and Makuta himself in Matoran form (based on his design from the Mata Nui Online Game) with a little stand.

You can print the decals using a standard home/office printer and transparent adhesive paper.

Although the set was designed with the intent to use the Dark Azure color scheme for Nui-Jaga, you can also find the exact same pieces in Medium Azure to match the new Takua design. The same goes to Makuta’s mask — you can easily swatch the Black one for Dark Bluish Gray if you want.

The parts guide is available as a PNG file, but you can also find it at the end of the PDF instruction.

A pair of great looking models, love it, when the fans embrace a new building style and tackle it in creative ways! Impressive effort on all fronts!


Super cool to see some foes in the same style!


Nice! I love the Nui-Jaga! Can it be built in purple?

Nice, the Jaga is a nice recreation of the set in this style, the printings look pretty nice as well.
