The doom box (according to the plot summary for a young reader's book) is a device that can grow, trap stuff inside it, then shrink rapidly and crush its occupants. It can potentially grow the size of the universe. No idea why the villains would want that to happen, though...

Because LEGO villains like releasing powerful things that devour and destroy anything in their way without realizing that they will be destroyed as well. :P-Gata Posted Image

Going to have to call in the ninjas for this one!So, I saw the episode. I really wish Lego would have released Arachnix Drones in polybags as exclusives or something. I'd love to have a whole army of them. Also am tempted to paint mine red and maybe attach a tail to it (I thought the tail was adorable)Kalhiki

You know that when there is more than one ninja it´s not ninjas, but still ninja? :PI had a similar idea about the Arachnix drones. They should have released some kind of Arachnix booster pack with ten Arachnix drones at once. :P-Gata Posted Image

What do you mean when? There's always more than one ninja. You just can't see them. There's five in your room, right now.But I think Lego could have released some more Arachnix drones in the same manner as the Kanohi packs. We could have got multiple colours. Three in a pack, and all collectable.

now that Breakout has aired officially, does anyone think we'll get an episode of "The Doom Box"?

We certainly will. There has never been a year, where they haven't put an epiosde for both halfs pf the year! Although i'm still wondering where Nex is going to be sent.

He's going to be set after XT-4.

However, you need to consider that this time, the story extends through two waves of sets and not just one, so it´s indeed possible that there won´t be a summer episode. We can still hope, though, especially as a director at Threshold Animation Studios spoke of a one-hour special for this year, and we are still missing 20 minutes for that.-Gata Posted Image

When they say "one hour special", that's including commercials. No way they're going solely based on screen time.Regardless, I do hope that some of the other sets get featured as well. Seems a shame to have half the team be totally absent.

...Gonna be honest, that sounds a little dark for Hero Factory. Sounds like the kind of thing I'd expect the Master to use in Doctor Who. :P

It's not too dark, as it's not like anybody will actually be crushed or anything, though...

They sometimes seem to make villian plans very dark, so it removes the moral abiguity of them being maybe/maybenot evil. Destroying the entire universe= unquestionably evil. Makes it easy to make stock enemies I guess?

I'm just thinking of if it got used on an individual person. That's gotta be giving some claustrophobic's nightmares, hasn't it? :P

HEY GUYSI was just popping in to say that, like, I'm going to replace Rocka and Bulk's(which are the only larger Heroes I'm getting this year, btw) ridiculously long lower legs with the slightly shorter ones because I tested it and WOW SO MUCH BETTER.BUT there seems to be a problem. In this picture with Bulk and Core Hunter it's kind of hard to tell, but in this one with Voltix and Stringer it's easier. Basically, both the villains and Bulk all use the same lower leg design, which are the aforementioned long lower legs with a 5 shell and the snazzy new Captain America boot armor stuff. ANYWAY, the CAKA(Captain America Knee Armor) has a small overhang off the bottom of the 5 shells, and I was wondering if that would effect posability when the legs are shortened.i know probably no one has the answer to my question but blah whatever i thought i'd ask anyway

I hear ya, brother. I've built several of them on LEGO Digital Designer, and I feel their appearances are much improved if the mid-size heroes' legs are made one or two modules shorter. Posability could potentially be impeded on those newer sets, but I'm not sure it would be enough to make a huge difference given the design of the 2.0 Hero foot.

Nex looks dreadful. They went too far in trying to replicate his 2.0 helmet, his left weapon looks positive useless, it's obvious he has no orange hands, and the white armour pieces on his legs would look better farther up. I will be changing him significantly.Bulk looks better than before, but I'm still disappointed he's almost not silver at all.-ibrow

It seems like Nex doesn't have hand pieces on both arms. I mean, I like his build but his head is quite ugly. I really like the new colors on Stringer since they fit together well. I also like the armor pieces on Bulk but the missile launcher on the shoulder looks pretty awkward.

Personally, I love Nex's new helmet and his weapon. It looks like it would be great for doing precision work, which seems the sort of thing that "The Tech-Head" would be doing more than heavy fighting anyway. The lack of orange hands is a bit sad but I think it's ridiculous to judge his appearance based on what parts he comes with. I also think his color scheme is well-balanced, even if I might have preferred an orange torso shell to keep the color pattern from the first Breakout wave going.Bulk disappoints me more than Nex does-- the way his missile launcher is attached seems extremely awkward, using Technic pieces where a Hero Factory bone and an attachment piece like Drilldozer's or Waspix's would have likely been just as cost effective and far more attractive. His feet, just as they were at Toy Fair, are black, which doesn't make much sense since Titanium Metallic is a much bigger part of his color scheme, and the feet are available in that color as of this year. Voltix has the same foot problem, incidentally.The one place where Bulk is most successful is in terms of personality. The missile launcher and bulky shoulder/head casing really suit him.

Actually, I´m pretty sure he has a black hand on the left arm with the launcher. What strikes me about Nex is his heavy use on system pieces.Somehow I always thought Voltix had gunmetal feet. That´s strange.-Gata Posted Image

You can get them from eBay. They cost about twice as much, however.

I really like the purple parts on his bike but his extra arms look weird. Stormer looks terrible. His legs are too thin and the chest area looks bad. I like Core Hunter's left arm and his head piece looks really cool.

Credits go to Strack for the awesome sprite.

 

I'm an Emerging Fluidic Master (again). Time to start working on my Waterbending.

Dear LORD. Those sets look incredibly awful. Stormer looks ridiculously top-heavy, and Core Hunter's headpiece is just plain ugly.

Stormer looks terrible. How does it even stand? SD looks pretty cool, though.

FINALLY, a close up, clear shot of Core Hunter's helmet. I'm like how it looks sort of like night vision goggles, with the six lenses and the straps on top of his head, along with the mouthpiece. Even though Core Hunter is a pretty generic build, I still think he looks really cool.

Stormer is able to stand because every joint in his legs is reinforced with this piece.I've actually become quite fond of Stormer XL. It's true, his legs slook slightly spindly compared to his bulky torso. But his proportions overall seem to be a lot better than most of the Black Phantom-style builds, and in fact almost better than the medium-sized Hero sets.Just for reference, I built Stormer XL on LDD (or at least, as well as I could without certain essential parts or building instructions to see his interior details). Here's an image. Despite his knees and ankles looking a bit bony, he has quite good proportions. My only worry is that when not standing straight up with his arms at his sides, his arms may look too short, since the shoulder joints are so low. This would be ameliorated by better shoulder articulation. As it is, his shoulders can move forward and backward or twist slightly, a step up from the typical Hero Factory figure, but they cannot move up or down the way human shoulders do when you raise them, and they start from a lower angle than a pre-fabricated torso bone which has them at a right angle to the spine.

Really? Personally, I love Core Hunter´s headpiece. ^_^-Gata Posted Image
