Set Information

The set's box

The set consists of 145 pieces.


The set features a Meteor Blaster, which is connected to the bottom of Rotor's left forearm. Rotor has a jetpack on his back, and the jetpack can move higher or lower to fly in a straight direction. The jetpack has a rotor can spin around.


The set includes an orange helmet. Despite the helmet having no eye holes, Rotor has an orange head. His forearms and chest armor have various stickers.


  • Unlike 7148 Meltdown and 7157 Thunder, which have their Meteor Blasters placed on their left forearms horizontally, Rotor's Meteor Blaster is placed vertically.
  • Rotor's legs are built the same way as Bionicle's large sets in 2006-2009.
  • Rotor's blades are the same as Tuma's sword and the Cendox V1's blades from Bionicle 2001-2010/Generation 1.
  • The Biohazard Gas Shooter has a silver piece that is the same as the Av-Matoran sets' from Bionicle G1.
  • Unlike Hero Factory's sets in 2010-2012 and Bionicle's 2009 and 2010 sets that have Glatorian heads that wear helmets, Rotor's helmet and Vapor's helmet from 7179 Bulk & Vapour do not have eye holes.
  • In Rotor's prototype set, he has silver shoulder armor and does not have orange tubes. The television episodes depict Rotor as this.
