LEGO Hero Factory MOC: Ruze 2.0
Out of patience and eager to prove himself worthy for field duty once & for all, Ruze recently seized an opportunity and took a foolish risk. He was assigned to test new cloaking armor, and he used this to sneak into the lab during off-hours. Well, actually he didn't sneak in, he just cloaked while he was inside, and didn't leave, while everyone else did. Before he took off, he picked up a powerful antigravity-fortified extraction arm being developed to aid with rescue missions. Unfortunately for Ruze, the antigrav fields, though mostly contained within the device, counteracted some of the effect of the cloaking armor, leaving one arm and part of his leg mostly visible. Committed to his plan, Ruze fled Makuhero city under cover of darkness, escaping detection by keeping his visible portion in the shadows and close to walls.
Ruze has refused to give any details, but he managed to sneak into Fire Lord's personal hideout, presumably using the extraction arm to blaze an under-defended route (ventillation shafts, perhaps?). There, he managed to "acquire" a piece of Fire Lord's own lava armor, and he made it back to the Hero Factory, in one piece!
Ruze faces much commendation, as well as much disciplinary action for his many violations of Hero Factory safety protocols and his standing orders. Regardless, the Hero Factory labs now have an invaluable sample of their greatest enemy's technology. Hopefully they'll be able to discover a weakness they can exploit, before Fire Lord's team completely cuts off all vital supply lines to Makuhero City!

Trivia: "Ruze" is both a pun on the word "ruse," referring to his cloaking armor, and also a derivative of "ruz," the Breton word for "red."
