LEGO Hero Factory Series 4 "Breakout" FINAL pics


Final, official photos have been released showing the Series 4 LEGO Hero Factory hero figures (that we all formerly referred to as "4.0") Rocka, Furno, Evo, Surge, Breez, and the villains Black Phantom, Splitface, Thornraxx, Toxic Reapa, and Jawblade.  Credits in the video:
We now have confirmation that some ball & socket "bone" pieces will be available in neon green, white, and the so-called "dark azure."  Be sure to post up your thoughts in the comments!

Edit:  Updated link with a better version of the video.

    Oh wow, thank you so much for crediting me!
    Hopefully now that the pics are public there will be some more opinions on the sets. That'll be interesting.
    Great music BTW.

    Oh, and I almost forgot to add this, Vinyl Scratch on Eurobricks has said he can see that Splitface's neck is divided into two parts. I personally couldn't make this out from the pictures, but it is certainly possible. I'd love his head to be able to split (if not his whole body).

  3. Cool! BF has more armor!He's also black,and way cooler!I don't see any other changes except a clearer backround and toxic reap a jumping.

    ReplyDelete
  4. That is awesome! My favorite hero is Rocka.

    ReplyDelete
  5. do you think that since furno surge and breeze have 1.0 heads,that those are evo and rocka's 1.0 heads?

    ReplyDelete
  6. OOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGG

  7. They look so much better now than in the preliminaries

  8. HEY JANG!!!! I'm a huge fan, and I was wondering if u could do sum heroes of Olympus heroes? I tried, but I didn't like it. So cud u?

    ReplyDelete
  9. heres what am thinkin':

    Black Phantom: Fire lords been training in dark arts somehow and he's tricked himself up a bit y'know?

    Splitface: Thunder has paited himself half red to create two identities and to look badass (like two-face from BM)

    Toxic Reapa: Corroders been on the 'roids hmmm?

    thornrax and jawblade: No comment

    ReplyDelete
  10. It's very strange... this is the first time that all preliminary photos (except BF pic) are the same that the official ones. And, it's just my opinion, but I think Black Phantom, apart of way good than the preliminary picture, looks a bit... "cartoony"? I don't know if you understand me...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Black Phantom is the only one who actually looks different! Toxic Reapa looks more green than his first photo. I am going to get Surge, Toxic Reapa, Rocka, Thornraxx and Jawblade. My brother is going to get Black Phantom, Breez, Furno, Evo and Splitface.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why is there only FIVE heroes?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey Jang, will you be buying any of the Marvel superhero sets? IMO they have some awesome parts for mocing like the purple and dark green cladding on Joker and Green Lantern respectively

    ReplyDelete
  14. The one who said Black phantom looks cartoony:
    It's called photoshop, maybe too much, but if the parts were like that, I will be the most fazed person on the earth.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just thought I should say to the person who said that Evo and Rocka had 1.0 heads was incorrect.
    They were created with the 2.0 upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Which one are you going to get first, Jang?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like the 4.0 Villons and Surge,Evo,and Furno

    ReplyDelete
  18. Black phantom's only difference is the t bar piece on the legs/knees also the armor pieces holding the furno 3.0 daggers is trans yellow!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. don't ask us it was lego's choice

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think that there are the same villians from the other series but they upgradded themselves like the heros did

    ReplyDelete
  21. WOW! EVO looks so cool and so does Rocka. The best villain is Splitface or Thornraxx. GO HF MOCS!

    ReplyDelete
  22. there are only five beacuse possibly there may be delta 4.0 (i heard it on other blogs)

    ReplyDelete
  23. When are you going to start making series 4 MOCs?
    And when are you going to stop making 3.0 Mocs? It's October and there is no Surge 3.0 Version 2 and Evo 3.0!

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL at last there is a main Villain who has got a weapon for hit and not for shoot rays or all this kind of crap. And with a long and solid handle! Oh, this looks impossible! :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. As many have posted before me the only preliminary picture that was changed was black phatom. Black Phantom is alot like fire lord. I have Witch Docter and I know that this guys leg design is a lot like fire lord's. Also the uses the same is head idea as fire lord, both use the cross holes on the side of the head for spikes. My favorite hero is breez because she has the largest melee blade and her shoulder armor. My favorite villian is Toxic Reapa because of the translucent green.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @ 5th commenter

    as far as we know rocka was made in the 2.0 modle. in savage planet they say that. However I belive evo was a 1.0

    ReplyDelete
  27. Why has this only got 13 comments? Now!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe they're not called 4.0 because they were originally prototype hero builds?

  29. Chronos, Lord of TimeOctober 18, 2011 at 3:33 AM

    @Anonymous (20th comment)- They would probably have the same names if they were.
    @Anonymous (22nd comment)- No. Maybe in the next wave, but not in this one. These are finalized pics. If there was another hero, they'd be here.
    @Anonymous (28th comment)- Maybe, but I don't think they would revert to prototype from 2.0 or 3.0, and I don't think it's a Mata Nui-Metru Nui chronology thing. But we'll have to see.
    @Anonymous (27th comment)- It updates all the comments at once, so there are actually alot more. Well I guess that's obvious now but... Ah well :P
    @Biodude- I think BP's spikes are on his helmet, not head. Evo and Nex never had 1.0 forms, as they were the first heroes created using he 2.0 upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  30. HerofactoryChronicle: thanks for the explaining (I don't know if I said it right, because I'm Spanish and my English is really bad)!
    Oh, and I think the 2 pieces that form the handle... I think I've seen them in other LEGO set. I'm right?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, those 2 pieces that form the handle are in other LEGO sets.

    By the way, your English is way better than my Spanish!

    ReplyDelete
  32. In Ordeal of fire, Mr Makuro said "Evo and Nex are the first to be built with the upgrade". And BP spikes on his head, are on his helmet.

    Here're my wants list:
    -Evo
    -Breez
    -Rocka
    -Surge (maybe)
    -Toxic Reapa
    -Thornraxx
    -Splitface (maybe)
    -Black Phantom (maybe)
    And I want Witch Doctor, but I'm probably getting him for Xmas.
    I know JANG will probably get all the sets, for reviewing and MOCing.
    What sets will other people be getting? I'm kinda curious.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Evo: LAME compared to all the others. Little armor, and ONE weapon, which appears in EVERY other set! His only worth is the Mask.
    Surge: Not horrible, but not good. He could have used a bit of a taller stance, though.
    Breez: I must say that for once, LEGO did not mess up Breez. She comes with a two sided "Samurai" blade, a gun, a shield, and ROCKET BOOTS! Nice.
    Furno: Weird, but not bad. He is big, he has a gun, Good armor, and Water propellors? WTF. He goes up against Jawblade. WTF double.
    Rocka: Nice, but a little messy. He has lots of cool parts, like a saw, gun, shield, a cool mask, and a BUNCH of other stuff, but a little "Weird"
    Jawblade: Fail. He has a cool helmet, but that is all.
    Thornraxx: Not bad, but Awkward. Just see for yourself.
    Splitface: Weird
    Toxic Reapa: NICE! He has stuff on his back, tons of translucent pieces, an AWESOME helmet, but is on the small side.
    Black Phantom: Would have expected more, but not bad.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Here's my wants list:
    -Surge
    -Breez
    -Toxic Reapa
    -Thornraxx
    -Black Phantom (for me and my brother)
    Me and my brother getting Witch Doctor at Christmas, along with an ipodtouch.

  37. Chronos, Lord of TimeOctober 20, 2011 at 6:30 PM

    Haha cool, I am actually typing this on an iTouch.

    @Anonymous (36th comment)- Evo actually is better-armored than Surge. I mean really, just look at his gunmetal arm!
    I don't think Rocka has a saw...
    I actually like Thornraxx alot.
    BP has greatly improved over the prelim version (although the changes are minor he looks alot better).

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think the heroes haven't got a lot of new pieces, and of course they haven't got exclusive weapons. Look at Furno, for example. Well, he has got two awesome turbines on his shoulders and it looks like a plane (:D); but he hasn't got his real OWN weapon; he just has got this triple attachment piece on his arm. Or Surge, who has got his original weapon in blue (it's a very good color, I must say). Or just Rocka! He has got the biggest gun ever! But the weapon is Furno 3.0's "bow", now in a real Shoot-Stuff (as JANG said). But is the same weary and repetitive Thornax launcher (Meteor Launcher, Lava Sphere Launcher, whatever). The designers, as in Savage Planet, have been more imaginative and creative with the villains.
    That's what I think

    ReplyDelete
  39. Rocka: His mask looks like the Ignika merged with Kopaka's mask. Too many weapons. But still cool.
    Surge: Loving the new blue weapon. I like the use of his 1.0 mask. It actually looks good on him.
    Breez: Too bulky.
    Furno: Awesome!
    Evo: Not bad I guess.

    Black Phantom: I would really like it if he was completely black.
    Splitface: His mask looks to much like Thunder's.
    Toxic Reapa: I like the transperant pieces ad the use of lego bricks. His mask looks like Jang's MOC QUADRO.
    Thornraxx: Is he controled by Witch Doctor or something! He has a Quaze spike!
    Jawblade: The only new piece is the head!
    I will be picking some of these up. Like Surge and Reapa.

  40. There is alot of comments on this page!

  41. When are you going to make a villian self-MOC? (I'm not saying your evil, I just want you to make a really cool one).

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Chronos Lord of Time
    Rocka has some sort of green blade thing on his weapon. It spins, I know that.
    Armor is good, but Evo just could have been made better
    Me too, but it is just a little weird.
    He does look better, and I have been convinced to by him. In fact, here are the ones I am getting:
    -Black Phantom
    -Thornraxx
    -Toxic Reapa
    -Jawblade
    -Furno

    My little brother is getting:
    -Breez
    -Evo
    -Rocka
    -Surge
    -Splitface

    I think I got the better side of the deal. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I was thinking the 4.0 would be ice and have artic animal powers. I tried to sketch this idea, but I ly got through to doing Bulk as a polar bear.

  44. How come you commented on your bioicle blogs but you do not comment on this one?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Chronos, Lord of TimeOctober 23, 2011 at 4:40 AM

    @Anonymous (45th comment)- On his left arm he has the crossbow, on his right arm he has a shield, like the one Breez has. Other than that I have no idea what you mean.
    Nice choices. Are you going to get any of the Super Heroes sets? They have great pieces even though they look awful, Joker has purple armor pieces!
    JANG, I think you should also post those pics, they aren't HF, but they are made from that building system.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Chronos Lord of Time
    That green thing inside his crossbow. Look DIRECTLY under his gold piece on the crossbow and you can see a little grin spinning thing. Or... maybe that is his other thornax launcher component.
    I might. It just seems a little silly, and a 12 year old buying LICENSED stuff about marvel and DC is a little... awkward.
    I wanted Rocka or Breez, but my little bro made a fuss.
    Joker may have the parts, but I am not sure

    ReplyDelete
  47. I might just be seeing things, but it looks like Rocka and BP's heads are DARK green. Not the the yellow-green we've seen before, but a NEW COLORED HEAD!!! That would be awesome for MOC making. Oh, and my wish list is:

    Rocka (head, mask, trans green launcher, armor, all together AWESOMENESS!)
    Surge (Just nice lookin')
    Evo ('Cause he's a Ninja)

    Toxic Reapa (worst name, best set)
    Split Face (like the half-and-half, and i hope his head splits apart. that would be SWEET!)
    Jawblade (he's a LASERSHARK! (PocketGod reference))

    ReplyDelete
  48. Chronos, Lord of TimeOctober 26, 2011 at 12:16 PM

    I think that Rocka uses the old trans-lime head... But BP has a dark green (or trans?) one for sure! And I think Evo is more of a samurai. :D Oh and LAZERSHARK.

    Front on Eurobricks has said that the Shadow Matoran foot piece on Reapa has been redesigned to fit the newer (2.0) ball joints. And if you look closely you can see that the Thornax launcher piece has been slightly redesigned to fit better on the four-fingered hands.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Toxic Reapa does not have a Thornax launcher.

    ReplyDelete
  50. WHERE DID YOU FIND THESE PICS?

    ReplyDelete
  51. My personal thoughts are that Surge looks stupid.
    however, surge is my all time favorite.

    have no fear I have a plan.time to put my MOC making skills to use.

    I'm going to make use of Toxic Reapa's green skeleton pieces to make a Super Surge!

    once I'm done with this project I'm off to by Joker. Using some pearl black/gun metal with his purple and a few recon pieces would be amazing. He would my strongest villain yet.

    HF 2012 desc. (temp.)

    HF 2012 product descriptions found on Eurobricks. Translated from French with Yahoo Babel Fish, so don't be surprised to read about RAW WOOL or dangerous tadpoles.


    Answer, FURNO! The gangsters are escaped by the black hole and your special capacities are necessary. Certain gangsters move straight towards l' water, but fortunately for us you are equipped d' a powerful watery jet, d' a harpoon and d' a gun with plasma. Continue them and carries out an underwater capture.

    Sounds alright. He has a watery jet.


    " RAW WOOL, there was an escape with Hero Factory and you must help us with all to catch up with them! We can nothing leave randomly, us t' thus equipped d' a launcher of electric shocks, d' a gun with plasma and d' a thick super armour. Passes to him the shackles and gives him the shock of his life! "

    Um... Surge. I have no idea where Raw Wool came from, although it sounds like it would be a sheep from Quatros. :P


    Attention EVO! The gangsters escaped from Hero Factory and we must quickly capture them! Us t' equipped d' a powerful lance-plasma, antitoxic boots and d' an armor-plated arm, you thus have all this qu' it is necessary for you to put the shackles to them and to give them (?).

    Don't know why the end cut off. Anyway, anti-toxic boots. And what plasma lance are they talking about?


    " BREEZ, we hope that you receive us! Hero Factory was attacked and the gangsters s' escape in all the directions! With powerful boots rocket, a sabre with double blade, a lance-plasma and a shield d' energy hex, you are our hero of the sky then pass the shackles to these criminals and show them that the Good always gains.

    "Pass the shackles to these criminals" Yep. Anyway, again with the 'plasma lance'... Maybe they mean the gun and it was messed up in translation?


    Produced description: " ROCKA! Vicious gagsters is escaped of Hero Factory and we need your assistance to bring back them. Use your special vision with detection of heat to locate them, captures them by using your arc and your energy shield then passes to them the shackles! We know qu' with you the galaxy is in safety!

    Uh-oh, vicious gagsters. And Rocka has thermal vision.


    Sorry the translation sucks, did my best.
    Beware RAW WOOL!
    Villains in next comment.

  53. Chronos, Lord of TimeOctober 29, 2011 at 12:08 PM

    Alright here we go:



    " Red Alert! BLACK PHANTOM was located in the tower Hero Factory! It must be stopped at all costs, but attention. It is armed d' a Arachnix drone, lance-sabres and d' a sceptre with a sabre and a plague and it knows s' very well; in being useful! We know that we can count on you!

    So I think this is supposed to be something like:
    Black Phantom is in the Hero Factory. He must be stopped. He is armed with an Arachnix drone (spider-launcher thing), lance sabers, and a scepter with a saber and a (mace?), and he knows how to use it. We know we can count on you.


    Hero, we hope that you receive this message! SPLITFACE s' is escaped and it tries to scramble the communications of Hero Factory. Equip you with all of which you have need to fight his cutting pliers, its gun with plasma, its laser of precision and its double personality and l' to stop before qu' it is not too late. L' failure n' is not an option.

    Okay, it looks like the villains are trying to sabotage the Factory? Awesome.


    " Caution! JAWBLADE s' is escaped of Hero Factory and it moves towards the watery planet Scylla. With its jaws crushing, its cutting fins and its blades of magma, it is really in its element, but we are certain that you can pass the shackles to him and bring back this large tadpole towards Hero Factory. Good courage! "

    Oh no, large tadpole! We must pass him the shackles!


    " Hero! TOXIC REAPA s' is escaped of Hero Factory and it was detected on the way of planet of Z' chaya. You must capture it immediately but are careful. It is armed d' an attack mortal with toxic waste, grips crushing and of powerful carvers laser. Hero, we count on you! "

    Powerful carvers laser. I think it's interesting that some of the villains are trying to reach planets, possibly homeworlds. Kinda cool.


    " Alarm! THORNRAXX s' is escaped by the black hole and it hides on the Ruche planet! Sink on planet and handcuffs this malefic gangster. Be held ready to avoid his spitting venom, its mortal dart and its cutting pliers and secures qu' it n' there the least spine in this mission does not have! "

    ... Malefic Gangster. Sink on planet Ruche. Yeah.



    So. That's all of them.

  54. toxic reapa is just like corroder, epic and and im going to buy it

  55. When does it come out? And did they update the heads to fit the new ones?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 1, 2011 at 6:10 PM

    Translation fixes!

    From Thornraxx's description:
    Planet Ruche = Hive Planet

    From BP's description:
    Plague- alternate translation = Scourge
    Scourge meaning his mace thing.


    I know Toxic Reapa doesn't have a Thornax launcher or whatever (but he does have 'powerful carvers laser').
    Maybe it's an invention from George Washington Carver and the laser turns you into a peanut if it hits you. :P

  57. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 4, 2011 at 12:42 PM

    It would be ridiculous but really useful.

    *pew*
    TR: Mwahahaha
    Evo: Uh-oh, Reapa's got the powerful Carver's Laser! You'll be nuttified if you're hit by it!
    Furno: Be careful Evo, don't be-
    *pew* (Evo shot)
    Furno: No!!! He was instantly vaporized!
    Evo: Down here!
    Furno: ...

  58. I know why they didn't make Stormer in this series.
    Because his armor his white, and the 4.0s have white hero cores. So, yeah...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Nah. Reapa looks more like Meltdown than Corrodor.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 5, 2011 at 3:46 AM

    @Anonymous (61st comment)- Yeah, that's why I'm hoping for black versions of these same cores next wave (even if next wave's heroes are not in the same style as this upcoming one's).However, chances are Stringer will be featured next wave, so black on black might not work so well. Now I think the heroes will probably have white cores again next wave- the cores are part white and part dark bley, so a white core on Stormer would maybe look a little better than a black one on Stringer. And BTW, these aren't technically called the 5.0's, just that they are the winter 2012 sets.

    ReplyDelete
  61. How can they be 5.0s? This is the fourth series!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think this is the story of these sets:

    The Five villians have broken out of jail and are heading to space to start destroying worlds. The heroes are called in to stop the villians.

    My guess is that their water based, because of Furno's "Watery jet" and Jawblade. How can Jawblade go to space if he is "Giant Tadpole".

    ReplyDelete
  63. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 6, 2011 at 4:17 AM

    @Anonymous (64th comment)- We were discussing what we think will be in the wave after this, the so-called 5.0 heroes, but it wouldnt be called 5.0 because the upcoming sets are not 4.0 sets. You can call them that if you want but they are just "winter 2012" sets now.
    @Anonymous (65th comment)- Well you've got he first part right. The villains break out of jail and the heroes need to recapture them. Each hero is specially equipped to catch one villain:
    Evo - Toxic Reapa
    Furno - Jawblade
    Rocka - BP
    Breez - Thornraxx
    Surge - Splitface
    Each hero fights their villain somewhere else:
    Surge - Space
    Furno - Underwater
    Rocka - In the HF assembly tower (!)
    Breez - Air (flying, on a Hive Planet)
    Evo - Jungle (?)
    As to how Jawblade achieved space travel to reach his home planet Scylla, he probably stole a spaceship (he does have arms), or even more likely, they'll leave that completely unanswered. :/
    So yeah, they split up to catch each villain. That's pretty much it.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I do not think Jawblade knows how to fly a spaceship...
    Anyway, no one knows if there will be winter 2012.
    Except Lego, if they have already designed the "5.0"s.
    Yeah, Evo's background looks like a jungle.
    I think Splitface's black side's foot is gunmetal gray! I think Evo's are aswell.
    Also, if Rocka's background looks like the assembly tower, that would mean that he fights Splitface, bacause in the description it said he is scrambling the communications of Hero Factory. It means his in the tower(I think). But it does make sence for Rocka to be gion up against Black Phantom.

    ReplyDelete
  65. OK i will be happy if this is HF's last year..i have over 100 sets so my parents want me to stop buying them....if this isnt their last year..and the new year after 2012 is even better...im gonna get PISSED!!!! but the ones i wanna get are:
    Furno-Pretty beast...i ALWAYS get the red
    Black Phantom- this guy looks epic...better then all of them...me want
    Breez-i want her swords!..shes ok though
    Toxic Reapa-name isnt amazing..EPIC CORRODER ON STEROIDS!
    Jawblade-i like the shark idea..cooler if it had more parts and was bigger
    Rocka-hes neat...but i might not get'em

    ReplyDelete
  66. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 8, 2011 at 4:24 PM

    Jawblade probably knows how to fly a ship, he's not an animal like the Savage planet villains.
    Yeah, that's gunmetal. <3
    Splitface went to space (SPAAAAAAAAAAACE) to sabotage a communications satellite, or at least that's my guess.
    Yup, Rocka vs. BP.

  67. Chronos, Lord of TimeNovember 10, 2011 at 12:05 PM

    Alright, a few things-

    I don't get why people call Reapa 'Corroder on steroids' or similar names- I mean, Corroder's bigger and bulkier than Reapa is.

    Next thing! New pics have been found. Only a few though- and again, I don't know how to link to the pictures. However, links can be found on the Eurobricks 'Hero Factory 2012' thread.

    And... That's about it.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Here's my want list

    Heroes
    5 Evo, I honestly think he could be alot cooler, and I'm not a big fan of the jungle theam.
    4 Surge he is better than evo by a longshot but I would like it if he was a bit bulkyer.
    3 Breeze I know i want surge bulky but she is just too bulky but I love the weapons.
    2 Furno love the idea of furno going under water because it makes a challenge for him
    1 Rocka I liked the 3.0 rocka but this guy is absolutely epic I love the crossbow machine gun idea. Rocka is EPIC!!!!!!!!!!
    And so are you jang

  71. Hello,

  72. @Anonymous:

    Q:do you think that since furno surge and breeze have 1.0 heads,that those are evo and rocka's 1.0 heads?

    A: No, they aren't. If you saw the movie "Ordeal of Fire", Evo and Nex were the first heroes to be "born" with the new 2.0 system. So, technically, Evo never had a "1.0" form.
    As for Rocka, if you saw Savage Planet, it says he was "born" with the 2.0 system. So he never had a "1.0" version, either.
