As the title asks, do any of you miss HF and how much? For me, well, despite that it’s in between Bionicle G1 and G2, I’d say 8 out of 10. It’s a very good original theme that introduced CCBS, and I wish it could have been a part of Bionicle G1’s universe if you want to know where we’re the Great Beings from G1. Plus, it needs some redemption. It’s been 10 years since HF was born, and 6 years since it ended prematurely.


I like Lego, Bionicle, and Hero Factory!:)

The second wave of the Hero sets were pretty cool, but other than that I don't miss the line at all. Maybe I would care a little more if I had followed it all the way through, but after the jungle part I stopped paying attention.

Hero Factory was a very unique LEGO theme for a multitude or reasons. It had some of the most creative marketing ever attempted in a LEGO theme with things such as the Hero Factory FM podcast and Hero Recon Team. It introduced the CCBS, a building system that revolutionized Constraction lines forever, being the far more durable and versatile than the Bionicle G1 system ever was. On top of that, it had really fun sets and characters, the heroes, and especially the villains. 

Hero Factory was never intended to have a rich story or intriguing characters, it just wanted to be fun and enjoyable... and I think it totally achieved that. For all those people out there who hate Hero Factory for "not being as good as Bionicle", I think they should look at the theme from a different perspective. Take off your Bionicle nostalgia goggles and give Hero Factory a chance. 

I really miss the line, I really hope LEGO doesn't forget about it!

It had a good run, so I don't miss it much. I thought the Breakout sets really perfected the character designs, to the point that nothing further was needed. And I never followed the story.

If they were to ever bring it back, or reutilize any of its ideas, I'd like to see more of the Invasion from Below sets. Those were probably my favorite.

I miss hero factory for pretty much only the reason that, for a few years, it was as close as I could come to Bionicle. Then Bionicle came back and, whilst I was never a huge fan of CCBS, took that building style to a logical extreme HF never really did. Early CCBS sets are outright terrible. Even the later sets usually pale in comparison to the Bionicle G2 sets. I'm more disappointed G2 didn't hang around for a while longer - at least long enough for us to get MOUP Makuta.
