LEGO Hero Factory MOC: Stringer 2.0

Hey, I can do this right?  The LEGO Hero Factory released a Stringer 1.0, and there's going to be a Stringer 3.0, so why not a Stringer 2.0?!

This MOC went together pretty quickly once I recolored the hero core and helmet.  "IndyBatman" dropped the idea to try a Stringer 2.0 on my LEGO-specific YouTube channel and though it's extremely uncommon (practically unheard-of) that I have the time to consider requests, the planets & stars aligned this week and I was able to make a couple of rare exceptions.



When 2.0-series upgrade specs were being developed for Stringer, he was dreading the idea of abandoning his trusty sonic boom cannon in favor of a generic "MTIS"-based weapon.  He pleaded his case to the development manager overseeing his upgrade and was able to hang on to sonic offensive technology, just for now.  The result is the multi-harmonic ice shotgun.  A cluster of independent ultrasonic emitters individually charge the ice spikes in the firing chamber.  By tuning them to different frequencies, they act against different compounds in the target surface, helping to defeat polyalloy and composite armors.  A small pre-fire emmitter is installed on top of the shotgun to take an ultrasonic sample of the target moments before charging & firing, to best optimize the offensive frequencies. 

On occasion, Stringer 2.0 will even manually set the frequencies for a known target, and he can actually make them all identical to target a homogenous (made of a single molecular compound) structure.  His favorite practical joke around the Hero Factory is to sneak into the Hero reconditioning lab and blast the cleansing fluid off just-cleaned colleagues, or blast the standard joint oil out of those that have just been re-lubed.  His subjects never find it amusing, but you have to admire the devious genius of it all!

  9. The core color is different than the head, and I don't really like the capsules on his shoulders, but this is still pretty awesome looking.

  20. Sweet. I guess lego and hero factory forgot about stringer and bulk. The amor looks radical and the gun looks sick. Great job.
