r4-g9 found pictures of the HF villains being released in the summer on a German toy shop website. I have to say, they look quite cool, particularly this scorpion thing!
Looks like animal type villains. Interesting. Scorpion is cool.
Why not call it bionicle #2?Cool sets though...
These are the new bionicles, right?
Hero-factory keeps getting wierder and wierder
What's Rocka XL doing under "Villains"? o_O *Google Translates text* He should be a hero...
I have to say that the gorilla one looks really nice.
The new villains look awsome! :-)
I don´t like HF but those look pretty cool!
I don't like Hero Factory, but even I have to say these sets look pretty cool; it reminds me a bit of the good 'ol Bionicle Rahi. Not too happy about LEGO milking the thornax launcher, though; personally, I think it's time for a new launcher. But, again, I don't like HF in the first place, so my opinion probably doesn't mean much:)
Hmm. Is it just me, or do some of those actually look good?
i like some of them but some just look plain wierd. some look okay though :D
Haven't been too keen on HF yet, but yeah... that gorilla one is looking sweet.
Rocka XL is AWESOME!!!
It's funny that the villians of HF are the only sets that capture my interest. Until now, I've only bothered to buy Meltdown, but now, I'm rather intrigued by the gorilla-like villain.
Rocka XL does looks good (ok, his helmet is a bit weird but the concept is cool). But I don't like those pieces. They are just a step down from the 2006 building system, which was already over-used. Well, at least they are better than the last year's HF. From now on, it seems Lego will repeat those pieces and the only differential between a line and another will be a bunch of new armor/blade pieces, what isn't necessarily good.
My son really loves these Im curious to see if the 3.0 guys will be able to build 3 in 1 like some of the 2.0 can build 2 in 1 or if its just an arbitrary labeling. Does anyone know if they will release another movie with these new characters in it?
I didn't believe it was even possible based on what's happened in the line thus far, but here we go - HF sets which may actually be /decent/. Wow. Obviously as box art they're meant to look good and so may be carefully angled to hide flaws or something (which is a nice change from the way things were going with BIONICLE/HF box art for a while *coughGreshcough*), so I'll reserve proper judgement until release and people get photos of the actual sets; regardless, based on what I see here, I'm so glad LEGO seems to have finally stopped fumbling the ball with this line. The builds look solid and aesthetically "correct", and the colour schemes look thought-out and not really eyesearing. Keep thus up, HF design team, and preferably give the hero sets a little lesson in this area. Please? The names are still terrible, and the sheer inhumanity of the designs still carries the same xenophobic overtone as through the line thus far, an overtone I still love to mock in various works, but eh, HF thus far has kinda desensitised me to that. :P(waitasec, why does the one called "Fangz" lack fangs...? :P)
@Dlakii: What was wrong with the Gresh box art?!
Neat, these look interesting. I might get into to hero factory. I bought a few bioncle and technic, but have always preferred basic bricks as opposed to technic elements. Let me just check that little box that reads "I want this set".:o)
Well,Well,Well, i know what giant, gold, titan i'm getting with bulk, witch doctor, the rest of the line....( I <3 Bulk 3.0....)
Personally, I think that 3.0 does not look very good. Most of the heroes look weird, and so does Which Doctor. The med size villains are...Okay. And scorpio looks really weird too. However, Rocka XL is a masterpiece! He's huge, gold, looks menacing, and has two trans-green hero badges. I love Hero Factory! But most of 3.0 is weird. Of course I won't stay completely out of 3.0. As I mentioned above, Rocka XL is great, and Bulk 3.0 looks interesting. But still.
Really cool! I guess the Heroes are going to a Jungle planet? Because they have a scorpion, Gorilla, wasp, dog thing.. And of course the background.
These look neat, I might actually get one (even though bionicle was way better(for the most part anyway)@PaulTR except they lack any of the technic awsomeness of the rahi :(
These villans actually look pretty good. But really? 'Fangz?'
but still, waspix is a good make.
@MisterGeolix814. Well, you have a point there. But mainly I just like Rocka XL. But at least he's a titan. Its mainly just the heroes I don't like very much.
I used to think most of Bionicle was the worst LEGO theme ever--until HF came along...
in my opinion, the new HF line is OK, but needs some fixes. Fangz shoulda had some actual fangs, and Raw-Jaw...is a cross-breed between a gorilla and an elephant? that's kinda messed up, but at least TLG made it look cool. Waspix isn't that good looking. too much black showing up here and there. the heroes are just plain terrible. i mean, Furno 3.0 only has a max of 28 pieces. that's kinda low compared to Stormer 3.0's 31 pieces. and TLG! Y U NO TELL US IF ROCKA 3.0 IS GUD OR NOT?!
J. B. I have collected Bionicle since 2005 :( I was sad when I found out what was replacing it...)CrazyAwsomeyeah ME AGREES...And I pretty sure he's a good guy but...I guss these look OK...I wish Surge was in this because I actually LIKE him... :\ \(P.S. I Have all my bionicle displayed as if there fighting each other...(P.P.S. looks like the final Battle for MATU NIE!(P.P.P.S How do you Spell that!)
Lego zoids. Sweet!
I don't really like these, I have been waiting for an oppurtunity to give Hero Factory a try, none yet.pop3465- Mata Nui
robbiew They do look like Zoids :D
pop3465: wait...who's a gud buy?
@crazyawesomeyeah: thew good buys are...Bulk 3.0
Nice! I wonder what the storyline will be for these...
@MisterGeolix814 yea, i agree with u. but in my opinion, the heroes are a little too drab. i mean, they have really nice colors and all, but i think Furno 3.0 should have had more parts to him, rather than the four pieces that make up his "wings" it shoulda had a more sexy bird look to him. that's just what i think...
@crazyawesomeyeah:it's 2 pieces
mistergeolix814-really? cuz i counted it. 2 blade pieces, and 2 re-made bionicle hands.
that is so cool
