LEGO Hero Factory MOC: Bulk 2.0


Well, I made a LEGO Hero Factory Stringer 2.0, so you knew a Bulk 2.0 was coming, right?  Well, indeed, here he is, a silver-clad Bulk 2.0 with an all-new weapon.  The original Hero Factory plan was to give Bulk 2.0 a double-barrel weapon as is the standard, but the deceptively high weight of the weapon forced it to be reduced to a single barrel.  It's basically an ice spike cannon, but the heavy twist centers around the two canisters on top.  These are filled with a super-compressed liquid metal (compressed nearly to the point of becoming a solid!).  The metal exits through a series of atomizers and coats the "ice" spike as it's formed.  Other compounds in the spike bond with the metal and form a solid metal-composite encasement, the weight and hardness of which adds significantly to the kinetic energy of the projectile. With the help of the pointed tip of the spike, blasting through some of the toughest forms of vehicle & aircraft armor becomes a possibility.


Because of the weight of his weapon, Bulk 2.0 is the first second-series Hero to utilize skeletal augmentation.  His left forearm is doubled up, not so much for strength, but to stabilize the weapon and help Bulk 2.0 take precise shots.  With only one barrel to his weapon and a slightly slower-than-average reload speed, every shot has to really count!

Here's the quick little vid...

  4. Brilliant! but if you read this, there is a better way to attach the helmets without using the visor (yeah, I know that is off topic. But you don't have to cut or alter any lego pieces, so I'll say how to do it in a later post.

    new reader of your blog, I really like it!
