Calling All Hero Buffs!
Join to comment
I noticed that hero factory has been catching on pretty well lately..
some of you may have noticed already but there is a Hero Factory group
which is currently the largest Hero Factory group on mocpages.
Unfortunately, it only has 29 members currently and it would be appreciated if anyone owning hero factory sets or people interested in creating HF mocs would join. Thanks!

No offense to you or any other HF lovers, but I just can't find the attraction to Hero Factory, esp. when it's trying to replace something as unique and rooted in people as Bionicle.

I find Hero Factory as just a way of continuing the pieces, not the spirit of Bionicle. Not even close.

Buy a Hero Factory 2011 set, they have great pieces. I agree, its very sad that bionicle died, but at least we can still build them.

100% agreed!

Is there any way I could argue with that sanely?

It's not continuing the pieces anymore. The 2011 HF uses new pieces-yes, they're useful for arms an legs, but they take away the design, building, etc-and they are not good for titans. It's just snap on this armor, snap on that-no technique necessary.

I agree with you but as you understand there are many people willing to give it a shot. I bet that people were just as skeptical about bionicle when it first came out. but since HF is continuing another year, you might as well join a group about it. but just so you are warned, we are not against bionicle and any one who wants to try to make it so bionicle and HF are rivals, we do not want any trouble between groups. But at least consider joining!

take a look at this page ...

Each year, Lego is trying to improve these pieces but I think this year also show their fragility and short duration. In your opinion, no longer makes sense to renew the context "exoforce" ... joints were much more attractive and durable

Exoforce joints are not very good for building or posing, because the is limited number of poses they can be in, and the are very stiff.

I forgot to add that they are better in combination with bionicle parts.
