Set Information

The set's box

The set consists of 50 pieces.

The back of the box shows Meltdown's stats.


The set features a Meteor Blaster, which is connected to the bottom of Meltdown's left forearm, turning the Meteor Blaster into Meltdown's variation of it called the Radioactive Sludge Shooter. The Shooter can rotate around its place. The set also has four flexible pincer pieces, each two one both sides of one of its forearms.


The set includes a yellow head piece, which is attached to a connector piece and an axle piece on its neck. The head also has a red piece attached to it for an eye. The set also has two transparent green containers on its arms. The set's forearms and containers have various stickers.


  • Meltdown is the only villain set in the 2010 set year to not have a Glatorian head piece from Bionicle 2001-2010/Generation 1.
  • Despite what is shown in the box, Meltdown's containers do not point upwards; they point to the sides of Meltdown's upper arms.
