Alright so when i mean by Sandbox is that with Hero Factory, you can make your own Story without changing LEGO Story around to make your own, you can make your own Planets, Weapons, Characters and a lot more.
With the theme of what Hero Factory made are more like ideas to help you make your own Story:
- With the 1.0 it will give us something of how your Hero MOC was made and make the story of how he went on with his life and the build are made easy to give you a start but the only thing that make it hard to make a MOC with the 1.0 is that there are not a lot of different chest armor in different colors (the only one with different color was the Rookie chest armor).
- With the 2.0 there was a lot more we have gotten like 100 new parts a different building style, you can change the armor in different ways of how ever you like it with different armor ,color and weapons but you can't make a black and silver until the 3.0.
- On the 3.0 it shows you don't have to make a Human Body MOC with the new build and gave you animal like helmets and head to make your own animal plus to make bigger MOCs (that was show with Witch Doctr). Another thing with Hero MOC is that they gave us Black and Silver chest armor to make Heroes with just black and silver armor. With the 3.0 story it help give us a idea to make a animal theme like story.
- With the 4.0/Breakout ,it help give us our MOC a idea for a mission that is the Mission Catch 'Em and Cuff 'Em to stop a Villain that have gotten out of prison and that it have given us a new weapon, add-on armor and hand cuffs for our MOC and help makes it fit with the breakout theme.
With 5.0/Brain Attack ,it give us a idea to make Aliens or something attacking your home or something important and you have to defend it. With Set to make MOCs, it gave us a new head to put Visor on, a new chest armor and idea to make different weapons. And with the Brains you can use them to make a different form of what the animal you made look like when it is control by the Brain.
And with today IFB it have given us parts to make where own Mech out of HF parts and that you can just make a MOC for like your Lego City of Mech Vs. Monsters.
Anyways you can also make your own Character and your own story like with my Hero Team Delta 47 where the team are trying to be known and not just a small class hero team.
So do you guys think that Hero Factory is like a Sandbox where you can make your own story and do what ever you want.
