Welcome to Part 2 of the little series I’m doing where I share an experiment of giving myself a LEGO building challenge using limited LEGO parts and time (you can read Part 1 here: The LEGO MOC Challenge – Part 1). This time I’m using elements from the #2192 LEGO Hero Factory Drilldozer and #2194 LEGO Hero Factory Nitroblast sets to create two villains to fight the heroes I shared with you in Part 1. The time-limit I set myself for this challenge was 20 minutes, which includes taking pictures. So let’s see what we got this time! 🙂
The first of the villains is called Ember. I mixed the building techniques used in the two above mentioned LEGO Hero Factory sets. He is equipped with both a blaster and a razor-sharp saw-blade. He is heavily armored, but his saw-arm is actually quite mobile due to the numerous small joints.
The second villain is called Iron Giant. He is not considered a giant compared to the heroes, but his friends call him that anyway. He has industrial-strength armor on almost every part of his body, which makes him a very tough foe. However his armor-plating also limits the mobility of his arms – which is his weakness. His odd colored blue hand was stolen from a hero, after his was cut off in a previous battle. (And due to the fact that between the two sets I used for this challenge there was only one hand included, so I had to improvise.) 🙄
I have been having lots of fun with this challenge, and I would recommend you try something like this too. It helps with developing your LEGO building-skills as well as engaging your creativity. If you would like to build your own custom LEGO Hero Factory characters you can check out the Online LEGO Shop for currently available Hero Factory sets.
So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO challenge idea and my custom hero figures? Would you like to try the challenge yourself? What would you build? Let me know in the comment section below! Also, I’m a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO) and this is my third article here. You can check out my previous posts below. Thanks for reading! 😉
