It has been awhile since we last caught a glimpse of Lorne, my Bionicle self-MOC that made the transition over to the Hero Factory universe. Given his dark and somewhat mysterious appearance, it's no surprise that many of you correctly guessed that Lorne would be caught up in this whole "Order" mess.
The transcript of the Lorne's audio stream is attached...

Today's intercepted transmission comes from the loud & rebellious Boravus, revealing perhaps more clues about the situation with the Hero Factory and Goruz, along with a frightening rumor we hadn't yet heard...

Another day, another fuzzy, encrypted transmission directed to the "Sempax" and making reference to "The Order." It's a rare treat, indeed, to actually hear the voice of Onyx, normally the epitome of the "strong & silent type."

What you are about to hear is an encrypted, audio-only transmission sent out by fan favorite Specter, the perennial stealth specialist. It is the first in a series of personal pleas sent through a very convoluted network of communication relays not accessible by most Hero Factory personnel.
We've heard rumblings about "order" in the past. What could it be? Who is the Sempax? What are the "Greys?"

In follow-up to my Super Arachnix Drone and even more substantive Ultra Arachnix Drone, this Ultimate Arachnix is as far as I could stretch the theme with the parts I had, while doing my best to primarily rely upon the "Hero Factory" ball-and-socket LEGO action figure building system, and also sticking to a single color scheme. Even with the many duplicate sets I've bought in the past, this Ultimate Arachnix used up most of my black armor pieces, and all but one of my transparent red/orange pieces! I was really happy to use 1.0 series hero torso pieces for the articulated shoulders of this beast, and you'll see some first season HF villain leg pieces (actually originally from the Ben 10 series, like it or not) used in the workings of the rear shoulders.
I've been holding onto the Terrain Crawler cockpit since early in my Bionicle hoarding days, knowing some day I'd find a perfect use for it!

There have been a handful of times in the past that I've posted about folks of wildly varying ages shamelessly taking photos right off this page and immediately re-uploading them to the official LEGO Hero Factory Gallery with new names & backstories. What I bring to you today, though, puts all of those previous reports to shame.
Over the past few months I've been quietly collecting notes from readers like you both here and on YouTube who have pointed out various places my photos have shown up with other people taking completely undue credit. Over the past week, I went through the proper channels and got 21 of these... situations... corrected.
