Reviews and custom creations in the LEGO Hero Factory universe -- the successor to Bionicle!
Sweet! just as cool as the original combiner. But what is a whim?
Hahaha... doing something "on a whim" is like doing something suddenly without any real reason. (At least, that's how I understand it.)
Mutant Bionic Electric Eel!BTW: FUTUE? Sorry, FUTURE.
BTW: BIONIC? SORRY, BIONICLE.
can you make mocs of the villiains of hero-factory rampant oceans sets
I know from experience that it is rather difficult to make a MOC based solely on a character name. At this point we have no preliminary images of the sets, so in my opinion, attempting to buid these as-of-yet completely unknown villains would be kinda pointless.
It's the Electric... Sea Horse... Jellyfish... Monster... thing.Is it a bad thing if I opened up a Voltix bag and ate the parts mistaking it for a skittles bag? He's so colorful...-Just kidding-
Lol, Yes, it is bad.
Hey jang i couldnt find a blog post for your alternate combiner of nex and xt4 so this is a comment for them. Is it ok if i make a replica of your alternate combiner of nex and xt4?
So I have a question for everyone.This week I will have the opportunity to purchase one (or possibly two) of the new HF sets. So, I ask you:which set(s) should I get, out ofBulkStringerCore Hunterand Voltix?
core hunter, one of the coolest sets to come out of hero factory since witch doctor,He has recolored(black) 3.0 lion paws and 2.0 shield and red claws. and you'll hav to pick that second one on your own. Stringer has cool new pieces like the speakers, and the trans blue chest. Bulk is good if you want to do the combiner, and he has a recolor or two, the silver 2.0 shield and 3.0 pieces. Voltixx has the purple, the lightning, and the purple.
Bulk has... well... More BULK. He has cooler parts. So does Core Hunter (Core remover. Sounds cool, though I haven't seen it) but his face is kinda creepy. But if you're looking for color, then Voltix is No. 1.
Core Hunter. Voltix. I now return you to your answering of Chronos' question.
CORE HUNTER AND VOLTIX!
Hahaha! Thanks for all the input. I think I'll end up with Core Hunter today, in addition to either Bulk or Voltix tomorrow.
Alright, in other news, we now have word of the voice actors for the Rampant Oceans TV episode. All of the Heroes have the same voice actors, but considering that all the villains are new characters, I did a little research on each of their voice actors, just to see what we're looking at.Electro - Dee Bradley Baker (well-known voice actor... he's always great.)Flatray - Jeff Bennett (voiced Xplode in the first episodes.)Calamari - Joel Swetow (voiced Meltdown and Rotor.)Crushclaw - Jason Canning (comedian... I'm not sure about voice acting, though.)Tidal Warrior - Fred Tatasciore (voiced Witch Doctor, Thunder, and Drilldozer.)The IMDb page can be found here.
Great, but now we've got to find the voice actors for doom box...come on guys, wouldn't you want to see Core Hunter on your big ( or little...) screen :D
Lego just can't think of good names for villains anymore... Electro? That's got to be the most unoriginal of them all.
Okay, I forgot to say in the last post. Jason Canning (rumored voice of Crushclaw) has been voicing Nex for all the past episodes. My mistake, I misread some information initially, but found out the correct details upon rereading. XD
Woohoo! I'm back! And ready to moc! I've got a whole slew of ideas after not having enough time all summer-Will
Jang I ask you this as a "friend". This is super important!!! I, Biotraxx12, need you, LEGOJANG, to align the stars and planets and galaxys from super mario galaxy again, and make the stormer xl with the bike i requested a long time ago in a home far far away, it doesnt even have to be a moc type video, mayb u could make a short little stop motion or something...(emotionally with sappy movie scene music) plz JANG, I need this...You need this...Heck, THE WORLD needs this! Think of the children Jang!!!!(Bow)
Considering the whole world doesnt know about jang, no. they dont. BUT IT WOULD BE FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!!
Hello everyone~The most recent employee catalog has been leaked. Since the AFOLs who get their hands on these are often biased towards themes like Star Wars and City, the constraction figure sets always get leaked last. It should be another week or two, but we'll get pictures soon enough.
Of the rampant ocean sets? YEAH, BABY!!!
HA! Nope. Faaaake. Turns out they were actually false set listings, look below for the real ones...
Just watched the Gérd MOC video and he looks amazing - gold and gun metal are colours that always work well together and I like the idea of the gun shooting out in rings like stringer's. The battle droid body pieces are a good way of covering up the back of the legs too. All in all, a really great MOC, definitely up the top of my favourites list with vergis rhey v.4 and the ultra arachnix. :DAlso, my issue of the lego magazine came the other day and there's a page where lego are actually encouraging people to break up their hero factory sets to build their own custom figures. Just thought I'd mention it. :)
Speaking of which, I know you're a busy guy, JANG, but do you plan on uploading Gérd or the Prakon to this blog any time soon? :)
Alright, the real 2013 set list has been revealed! Rampant Oceans was all completely false, so sorry to disappoint.According to Eurobricks member Wout:Good Guys44000 Furno XL44002 Rocka44004 Bulk44006 BreezBad Guys44001 Pyrov44003 Scarox44005 Bruizer44007 Ogrum So, yeah. Wout is apparently a reliable source, so these are the real sets! Prices can be found at Spielwaren, and once you know the price you know the set size... looks like Furno XL is $20, all the other heroes are small $10 sets, and all the villains (except for Scarox, who is $10) are $13, meaning they will be medium sized, a la Core Hunter and Bulk from the second Breakout wave.Oh by the way, there is some confusion over the name of one of the villains; it has been reported as Pyrov and Pyrox alternatively, so it really could be either one.Oh, and there's also this, which is just strange as all hell. Make of it what you will.
So how did Rampant Oceans come about? You said there were voice actors and everything... someone somewhere took a very long time to come up with R.O.By Riker's beard, what's going on?---Toysrus ran a B2G1 free sale. So I picked up Voltix, Core Hunter, and Bulk as the free one because there was nothing better there.
Yes, a very in-depth scam. Then again, it is possible (though unlikely) that Rampant Oceans will be the HF theme to come immediately after Brain Attack...
Brain attack? No comment...
Who did what now to his brain? Seriously Lego!! That's the best youcan come up with!?! Brain attack... just no(on a side note,i feel as though eveyone of those "usuals", as it were, seem to know everything that goes on with eachother, and I'm stuck having to ask why Groucho has a fake mustache..! Do you all hang out or something?)
(Reads text... Drinks some tea... Spits it out)BACON WHAT?!?!?Guys! Groucho's mustache wasn't REAL! Oh, and the first thing you see when you search "hero factory 2013" on Google images, you see a picture of GORUZ. But that's less important. And also, Furno XL? We all expected.P:):I so you know who I am.
Groucho's mustache wasn't real? I find that hard to believe.:DP.S. Does anyone else think these 'please prove you're not a robot' verifications are getting very difficult to read?
Of all the random replies one can receive...
Also, @Avron, not really, no. They did for a little while, but now they've actually started to repeat for me, for some reason...
Who is this "Groucho" you speak of, and why does he walk around with a fake mustache!?! Pfft... what a disgrace to mustache kind
Now it's officially just digression, but I'll satisfy your curiosity Biotraxx12.Groucho Marx, famous actor. And yes, he had a mustache.
He's talking about Groucho Marx, who although originally drew his mustache on with a marker, later grew a real one.One question: Why are we talking about Groucho Marx when we should be talking about HF? This is how JANG disabled anonymous commenting, you know. And I thought that P:):I promised to stop spamming.
XTN is right... and back on topic we go!So, people, what are your thoughts on the villain names? We've been told that they look particularly awesome and evil, so I hope that they pulled that off... and how well (or badly) do you think they'll make the rumored extruding brain pieces? XD
Honesty time: Guys, I didn't write that comment. Stuff like that could go on in my brain, but I'd never spit it out. Not anymore. But according to my recent research, both parts are true. The mustachio was fake and GORUZ is number 1 on the images.And a weird thing is, I once wrote a comic called "Bacon WHAT!?!" (or was it spelled "?!?"). I have a suspect of who El Moustachio really is, but some research must be done on the case.
That depends. Am I a regular? If I am, I say you count as one, Biotraxx. But I'd bet I'd be more regular if my name really was Bob. Back on topic!Who is attacking the brain? Whose brain is being attacked? My guess is the villans are doing the attacking, singe the Heroes didn't break out in Breakout. Any more questions not involving us? Google it.
Really? thanks :D(runs into a random convenience store, "Guys, I'm a regular commenter!")
Seriously, it's almost like you guys want to derail the topic. XDNo pics yet, but there's some toy show or other coming soon.
What? all im hearing here are mustaches and bacon. I now regret not checking every day like i used to...
Aha, another plagiarism report.I tell you Avron, you're losing your touch, these guys are showing you up. :P
You have to admit, it's actually pretty comical that they blatantly included the pic w/ a watermark the size of texas.
Wow... just wow... the first one even has Jang's watermark clearly printed right across the screen. I think he meant 2012, not 2013, but that first is just bizarre. I could go on with a list of reasons why even the daftest folk would realize it's not from lego, let alone an official set.
Actually, I don't patrol youtube. Far too complicated sifting video after video.And still... wow. That watermark is just huge and plainly stating where it came from... lol so funny to see this poor attempt at stealing or just being too darn dull.
Good to know, TimberWolf. (Maddy ain't the only nickname czar here) XD
Unless you're referring to Pirai, who is not in fact me but sort of a representation of such, I am in no way a wolf. :P(Hmm... for some reason my comment didn't go through before.)
Hi! I posted on your other blog as well, but then realised last time you posted there was april, so hi again! I have a question....I have a bionicle and I a dont know his make or kind or name or anything really, and I am searching for him online and I cannot find any that look exactly like him, he was a given as a gift to me and already made so I have no information about him...If I send you some pictures of him would you be able to give me any information? If you don't want any email communication, have a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qj3j-6JsLUo&feature=plcp he's the star in it! I hope my msg does not creep you out, I am just trying to find more information on him...Best,Sofia
That would be Sidorak. Set 8756. Sidorak is an AWESOME set.
That is Sidorak. He was a titan released in 2005. Hope that helps :)
Sorry, I beat you to it ;D.
That's also an interesting video about Sidorak collecting... balloons. Sure.
HF 2013 final images are in, courtesy of http://www.fullmetalhero.com.See the pics at http://www.fullmetalhero.com/t9922/EARTH GREEN, REDDISH BROWN, and TRANSPARENT COLORS FTW!
Yes. I've been trying to find these all day after they were taken down on BZP.Personally I don't think that most of the sets themselves are that great (villains specifically, the heroes are mostly cool) but holy crap, these are amazing parts packs for MOCing.
At first I was thinking, "brain attack? What a dumb idea!", but after i saw the pics, i actually think lego has had a good idea with a good concept to go with it! Good job LEGOexcept maybe if they made furno xl with a smaller head and bulk him up a bit more :)
It just occured to me.Robots don't have brains.I supose the heroes have those mask/helmet things to protect their 'brains'?"His brain is gone!"
Is LEGOJang dead cause he hasn't posted in over a month or two
cool mod gang!
Well, JANG hasn't updated the comments in weeks... too bad... :/
In reply to your previous comment, you can usually find leaked images/info readily available on the Lego Action Figures Eurobricks Forum, as they don't have as strict policies on leaked info as BZP does.Speaking of which, I've been inactive everywhere lately. I need to catch up. :/
That's actually my usual source. But Eurobricks was actually offline that week. ;)
JANG must be having a nice social life!Some may think him a nerd, but he must be popular.
Yes I know the whole "Adult life with adult responsibilities" thing... But you better hurry and post something Jang, before Turkey day comes and I'll be to lazy (and having a major stomach ache...) to check the blog
