Ok, here it is. Hero Factory. The Replacement of the Legendary Bionicle. once it started out, people cried foul. The series of not-so-posible robots was off to a clunky start, and with the early promise of a tv show to follow, we didn't know what to think. bear with me as I unload what I know about hero fctory, from then to now.
These are the first out of the gate. The names alone made me run away from them. Preston Stormer? Jimmy Stringer? Come on, all the creativity gone already? Lets face it, I'm looking at lego power rangers! At first I was a bit ashamed, but then the baddies came along! And boy were they ever cool and fun to build, and posible to boot!
Von Nebula. Classic bad guy name, with a Classic bad guy game, revenge, power, concealment, the whole deal. Only by working together could the Hero factory team bring him down.
After the first five episodes, I liked what I saw. Potential. Like Power Rangers, but cool.
Fast Forwarding on down the line here to 2.0.
This is were things got interesting for me. I know next to nothing about the 2.0 story accept that the min baddy is known as "The Fire Lord"
But I will know the story in time. what I DO Know is they brought back combination in 2.0.
The figures, on the other hand, came barreling off of the lego assembly line armed and fully posable. My only problem was that they were very VERY Simply constructed, all it was was pop pop pop done, and they didn't bring back jimmy, who after much making fun of his name, oddly became my favorite. I still have the 1.0 figure of him. Solid.
On to 3.0, otherwise known as Savage Planetz. Basically, they are on a hunt for Aldous Witch, otherwse known as "The Witch Doctor.
And the Heros have never looked better (Oh, and Jimmy's back!)
And on another note they can still combine with one another like in 2.0. And Rocka gets some kinda upgrade
Evenually they stop the witch doctor and all is well.
Until we find out who the Black Phantom is anyway. Anyhow, Remember, Bionicle replaced the Throw Bots
Couldn't get a working picture on this computer
So if your a lego fan, I Recomend giving hero factory a try.
Hope you found this interesting, or mind changing, or both. Still, I wish this WAS Bionicle, but like, future or future relatives or something, but that's not the case, so, If you DO Pick up a Hero Factory Figure, tell me your honest thoughts.
