A LEGO Hero Factory hero has arrived, at last! Vergis Rhey comes from the "old school" of combat training. He uses only melee weapons, prefering the double-bladed balanced axes shown here. His attacks are flowing and continuous chains of combinations, while for defense he tends to alternate between deflecting attacks with his weapons or evading via sideways rolls. He never turns his back to an opponent and is a very tenacious, persistent fighter with an intimidating presense.

Stop where you stand! There may be danger ahead! Von Nebula has begun deploying the four-legged Anansi gun drones to defend his outposts. These units are small, but dangerous, packing the power of a full-sized blaster mortar. Because they are so compact, Anansis have a very small energy reserve and spend most of their time in power-saving standby mode. Their limited sensor data is continuously monitored from afar, and when a threat is detected, they are brought up to full power and put into action.
The best strategy for defeating an Anansi is to target its tail section, which contains the remote antenna array. Beware that they are rarely deployed alone -- where there is one, there is certainly another near!
