Hero Factory Nex review (Breakout wave 2)

Oh no, it's the end of LEGO Hero Factory's Summer 2012 line!  Closing out Breakout Wave 2 for me is the new version of Nex.  He's one of the two smaller characters of this wave, returning at about the same height as he started in original "2.0" form.  Recaps & combination models are still to come!

Hero Factory XT4 review (Breakout wave 2)

Well this is somewhat bittersweet. It's my last villain review from the Summer 2012 Breakout wave 2 series from Hero Factory.  This XT4 character is curious and funny-looking, and I like him.

Hero Factory Stringer review (Breakout wave 2)


Stringer was the last hero to be released in the US from LEGO's Hero Factory Breakout series wave 2, for Summer 2012. In this review I give a quick overview of his parts, do a speed build, and then offer my thoughts on the completed figure and his changes from the original form.

Hero Factory Speeda Demon review (Breakout wave 2)


Here's another LEGO Hero Factory Summer 2012 Breakout (wave 2) villain, the big set of Speeda Demon and his "nitro rocket motorbike" together in a set.  Because this was another big one with a lot of parts, I split it into three separate videos:

LEGO Hero Factory review: Core Hunter


Continuing my LEGO Hero Factory Summer 2012 Breakout wave 2 reviews, here's a villain for your enjoyment!  Beware, it's Core Hunter!

Summer Breakout set review: Stormer XL


It's here!  My first Summer 2012 Breakout (wave 2) set review!  This is one of the bigger sets and has some exciting stuff to it, so instead of putting it all into one 20-minute run-on vid, I broke this one up into three distinct parts.  Hope you like it!  More to come...

About me quitting LEGO & other frequently asked questions!


  1. Did you die?  Mmmm, no. No, reports of my demise are quite premature.
  2. Why have you stopped doing videos? I haven't. Since my last post here I've uploaded 122 videos to YouTube. Stop & think about that for a second. One hundred and twenty-two videos. Yeah. Just none of 'em LEGO-related.
  3. Have you quit LEGO? No, I just haven't had the time & motivation to dedicate to the LEGO world lately due to all of the other things going on in my life, including, but not at all limited to one hundred and twenty-two other videos.
  4. Will you review the 5.0 Hero Factory sets? There are no "5.0" sets, but I will be reviewing the Summer 2012 Breakout/series 4 wave 2 sets.
  5. OK when will you review the Summer sets? Once they're available in my country (USA) and I buy them and receive them. As of the time of this post here, the sets are only out in a limited number of European countries. I don't have 'em, can't get 'em, and therefore can't review 'em. Once I can, I will.
  6. Is there more to the "Sempax" story to come? Oh most definitely.
