The most annoying set design problems in HF?


Recommended Posts

Hi, guys. When you build the sets, have you noticed any set design problems? Like, you know, the designs give you problems? Well, here are my problems: 

1. The 2010 Heroes’s limbs are stiff. 
2. Some sets have weapons attached to their arms, and they leave out either the arms or hands. For example, 2010 Stormer’s right arm is a one-piece weapon. Many villains have guns for weapons. 
3. Von Nebula’s arms are stiff. The TV show shows that his arms can bend when they look like that they have more pieces that can form actual-looking forearms. 
4. Rotor’s and Vapor’s helmets don’t have eye holes. 
5. Some sets’s arms are uneven. For examples, Drilldozer and Nitroblast. 
6. The Witch Doctor has two little uneven pins sticking out from his waist. I mean, what the heck are those things? 
7. Many sets have empty-looking backs. The TV show shows that there are extra pieces on the backs, but they seem impossible in real life. 
8. I always have a hard time cuffing Jawblade’s and Core Hunter’s wrists because they’re so thick.  
9. The Heroes’s visors in their 2013 sets are attached to their heads rather than their helmets. 
10. The Invasion From Below sets in 2014. They are the worst. 
11. Jet bug is the only Ordeal of Fire villain set to have 2008 hand pieces rather than the CCBS hand pieces.

Honestly, other than a couple of things here and there, HF sets seem fine to me. But one thing that I always wondered about was if they actually would make a Stringer 2.0 set, because in Breakout 1 he has 3 arms: two normal CCBS arms, but then his right-hand weapon is his 1.0 weapon, which was his arm... Just go watch the beginning of the Breakout 1 episode on the LEGO YouTube channel and you'll see what I mean.

Also Jetbug have a very noticeable flaw. His head is designed so he has Nitroblast's face on the other end on his head so lego could recolor it in red. This uneven face is noticeable from all angles except the front.

I have a few of my own

2010 Stormer, Stringer and Bulk had specialized full weapons arm.
Many sets during 2.0 had unevenly sized armor pieces on certain sets. Just look at how Natalie Breeze looks like.

Starting with 2.0 Savage jungle and the other years many sets don't have fists on both arms just so they can create weapons instead. Furno XL is the worst offender...the designers could have put it on the side of arm (like Brain Attack Stormer's left weapon shield)
Witch Doctor and Fire Lord and many other sets have big gaps in them
Stringer lost his orange colors during the Breakout storyline.

Lastly Bruizer from Brain Attack is just bad in every way imaginable just for a gimmick arm that is just awful

The fact that the 1.0 and 3.0 Heroes have the same helmets...

GENERATION 5: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.
