Hero Factory RACERS: Specter + Shadowbane


On to Hero Factory RACERS pair #4! This one brings back good old Specter 2.0, now in miniature form (and slightly updated since you last saw him), with his Shadowbane racecar.

  6. Cool figure and AWESOME vehicle!
    Oh, and good news about the Summer Breakout series. In BZP you've got an article about them and a fair amount of photos and comments. Here are my thoughts about this series:

    Nex: cool mask, good colour scheme, but his "special weapon" is an actual lack of imagination. Sorry LEGO.
    Stringer: it rocks! He's got a blue translucent chest plate! His gun looks like a guitar! He's got a very cool colour scheme, and some new pieces! But what the actual f**k happened with the orange? Seriously...
    Bulk: not bad at all. His special shoulder gun is cool, and it has got some sweet old LEGO pieces in new colours... is cool.
    Stormer XL: OH MY FREAKING GOD HE'S AWESOME! Right, the head looks... tiny, in comparision with the rest of the body, but the body... oh man, it ROCKS. For the new pieces: some kind of connector for his sword (that is actually two Breez style swords), his new silver and huge feet (AWW YEAH, FINALLY THERE IS A TITAN WITH NO ARMOR PLATES INSTEAD OF FEET!!!), and a new double socket connector (like the bone used for the head of Raw-Jaw, but without the ball in the middle) in red.

    XT4: a cool new way of make a torso, good-looking mask, new colours for bones and new pieces galore, a giant buzzsaw... but why the heck has he got so long legs with almost no armor in them?!
    Voltix: cool pieces galore, the red-black-gunmetal-purple colour scheme probably could work out well... but with the blue hoses, and the yellow tentacle and zamor sphere, and this awkward design to attack the lightnings to the head... I just want to say: they are SERIOUSLY about to release this?! C'mon!
    Core Hunter: ahh... now we're talking... THIS is a villain. Black and red ALWAYS works and it always ROCKS. He's got some new pieces and lots and lots of cool recolours, like the 3.0 fists in black and the talon pieces in red, the 2.0 shields in black. Also, he's got a cool mask, and some touches of gunmetal, like the swords from the 2.0 villains or the top of his cannon. He is, without any kind of doubt, the best villain in the whole release. But I can't understand why has he got a bright green zamor.
    Bah, I will buy it anyway.
    Speeda Demon: cool motorcycle, a new amount of purple pieces (aww yeah for JANG xD), lots of recolours (like Waspix' silver spikes, now in gold), and the new awesome golden swords, and BF's mask in lime green... but the driver is not so special.
    THIS ARE MY THOUGHTS!!!

    1. I'm who posted the comment, and I made a mistake. When I was talking about Stormer XL connectors, I said that they were in red, but their actual colour is grey.
      And when I was talking about Voltix, I originally wanted to say: "this awkward design to ATTACH te lightnings to the head".

    2. Does it have the summer sets in it? If it does, that means they are no longer confidential. Otherwise, it is still illegal to post them.

      Delete
    3. Photos of summer sets from Toyfair aren't illegal; therefore, it's not illegal anymore. But from the looks of it both Speeda Demon and Voltix will be in the Winter Breakout episodes, facing Stormer and Stringer respectively.

  9. -gasp-

    -mouth drops open-

    I just looked on the HF gallery. There is a real life picture of Stormer XL! It looks like they inflated the original, but forgot about his hands and head.

    ...That's not the only thing I gasped about. You read my name correctly. Someone stole a picture of one of an old MOC. It is the Quadriped Walker, one of Gelaeus's robots from the Rilovian storyline. They would have had to purposely look for it, and guess what? They are 14 years old! They definitely know what they're doing!

    1. Not again. I'm just going to skip to the point. Someone stole a picture of the Anasi Mobile Gun Drone, one of Jang's MOCs before Hero Factory came out.

      They are old enough to know stealing is wrong.

  10. Pretty nice. A fitting vehicle for Specter's rather mysterious character. I would have liked it if the "eyes" in the Visorak head were a translucent color, but that's just a small concern.

    Summer set opinion time! Although that wave isn't as good as the winter Breakout wave IMO, it's still looking prrtty good. I'll probably nab Bulk, Stringer, Voltix, and possibly Core Hunter.
