LEGO Hero Factory MOC: Avenn 3.0


The latest rockin' LEGO Hero Factory hero to join the Savage Planet missions is Avenn 3.0.
  • Role: Frontline soldier

  • Animal power: Golden Eagle

  • Weapon: Minimine cannons

  • Special ability: Flight



Avenn is bad to the bone with the personality of an untouchable superhero -- cocky, yet somehow cool at the same time.  His twin mini-mine cannons can be used for direct suppressive fire or to lay traps for moving enemies.  Avenn is not one to let a villain flee.  He'll take flight and lay a calculated, perilous path with his mines, corralling his enemy into a situation from which it cannot escape.  Avenn doesn't take prisoners, and he doesn't take "no" for an answer.
Frequently asked questions:
  • Q: Why is the head not just mounted in the normal spot place?

    • A1:  Because I liked it like this :)

    • A2:  I needed to move the head upward just slightly -- no more, no less.  In the standard position it's just too low and made it look like the neck was squished while limiting turning side to side.

  • Q: Why is the helmet color not matched to the other gold parts?

    • A1:  Because I liked it like this :)

    • A2:  No, really, that's why.

  • Q: Can Avenn shoot while flying?

    • A: Very much so.  He has wrists, not to mention that while in flight he can still bend his arms however he likes for a couple seconds while in a glide.  Flap, flap, turn & look, shoot, extend, flap, flap...

    Really cool. Great NPU with the Zamor launchers and the blades from Zaktan. The color scheme actually looks pretty good, although I wouldn't expect it to. And nice job on the helmet recolor.

  4. I love it. Amazing! But why did you make the head set back like that?

  5. this and breez are just plain jaw dropping-ly awesome. Hey, if you are planning to make a surge 3.0, i would suggest a shark theme. it just seems right, and it would bring back the aquatic stuff that we all liked from bionicle. please consider!

    I'm really curious. Did you read the F.A.Q.?

  10. I can see no reason why people are asking about the neck being cocked back like that. In fact it matches the eagle theme*.

    *look at an eagle from the side view
