(My) Witch Doctor is Dead!

When I get new LEGO Hero Factory sets in, I open them on camera, build them on camera, and then generally take them all apart for MOC-making as soon as the videos are done.  Rocka XL was the last of the heroes to fall this way, and now, the final Savage Planet holdout, the Witch Doctor himself, has been torn apart.  Literally. 

I won't be Witch-less for long, though.  I'm completing an epic Witch Doctor MOC on an extreme new scale!  I figure I have the extra parts, so I might as well use them.  The toughest thing will be keeping this as true to LEGO's basic Hero Factory building system as possible, like I'm doing with all of my HF MOCs now, avoiding the temptation to build from scratch with Bionicle & other Technic pieces.  This will be a challenge I haven't seen undertaken by anyone else as yet, so wish me luck!

  3. Why did you kill Witch Doctor? I'm sure your army of 3.0 heroes could've taken him down easily.

    On another note, your new Witch Doctor will either be massively huge, or chibi.

  6. I often don't take my Hero Factory sets apart, except to rebuild them, 'cause when I do I lose half the pieces except the ones on the MoC I made. I prefer to make them on the LDD. I've enjoyed every single one of your MoC's so far and can't wait to see this Witch Doctor MoC and your other ones, Good Luck :)

  19. Hey JANG, if you look on the lego Hero site, a designer vid shows an awsom flexible rib cage.
    Perhaps you could use it on your new Whitch Doctor moc. It should be EPIC!!!
