So you guys saw the videos on the main site. Do you think he'll return, and if so, how? Next year maybe?-Bane

The whole point of the Hero Factory story is to be episodic ... I didn't think it would include recycling villains as they recycle heroes.Is this a shift to a more overarching story, or is this a one-time thing? Or are they trying to find a compromise between the two?As far as a possibility of Von Nebula returning in set form, I think that's pretty slim. I don't want to discount the chances, though.

I doubt we'll see Von Nebula as a set again unless he somehow "transforms"-- after all, TLG has learned time and time again that "re-releases" of older sets sell poorly.As for in story, the possibility of his return is curious and breaks from Hero Factory's typical storytelling style that never looks back on loose plot threads from previous years. But at the same time, it doesn't have to make the series too backstory-dependent. It's easy to imagine Von Nebula treated simply as "a villain from Stormer's past" just as in 2010 he was treated as "a rogue hero from Stormer's past". I don't expect any of his actions in the 2010 story to be incredibly relevant to his possible impact on future story.

It'd be cool to see him return, even though it might be awkward, in that he was sealed most securely in all of the Hero Factory. Chances of him returning in a set are slim to none in my opinion.

I'd love for them to make a Von Nebula set. I just hope that it's better that that rejected Makuta.

I'm kind of indifferent to his return as a set, but he did have an interesting story.

HF's storyline is too simple to bring back old characters as part of a new adventure (more than just a cameo appearance) and thus connect single story arcs to each other like Bionicle. Which means I don't think he'll return. Unless HF's storyline is evolving. Anyway, I guess we don't have a chance to see a new Von Nebula set.

As long as it looks good and as long as there is a notable difference to the set from 2010 (an upgraded, larger body and perhaps another weapon), I am happy with a possible Von Nebula set.~Gata. ;)

I think a Von Nebula set in 2013 is highly likely, given he appears to have been the brains behind the whole breakout saga. I reckon they can reintroduce him, keeping the episodic system they'd set up. The heroes just need to give a quick bit of exposition when he shows up, explaining how he was a big villain who recently broke out out of prison. That's all they really need to set him up as an intimidating villain (More than he was last time. Boosh.)

I had foretold the return of Von Nebula in the Breakout on the Lego.com message boards...but few listened. Until another topic was made on the subject. Oh well.Of course he's coming back! German version's been aired. I liked it a lot. Ich bin...lustig? Yes, that's how to say it.

If he does return, I hope there will be another set released, similarly upgraded into the new style. Then, hopefully it can also come with tons of ball joints in black, like the red ones on Witch Doctor.~B~

I think it would be cool if he did return, but overall it just doesn't seem likely to recycle a villian in Hero Factory.
