Drop Ships are used by Hero Factory to transport Hero Pods, provide air support to Heroes on the ground, and transport heroes. They are nicknamed "Hero-Crafts".

History

Drop Ships were created by the Hero Factory to aid heroes. They are mainly piloted either by specialized pilots, or other heroes.

Thresher's team took a Drop Ship on their mission to New Stellac City. However, Von Ness stole this ship and used it to flee the area when he grew too afraid of the impending threat.

The Alpha 1 Team frequently used the Drop Ships during their encounters with Von Nebula's gang. They chased down Xplode and Rotor in one, and launched a Hero Pod from it, tricking the villians into attacking that while they safely landed the ship. On mission to stop Corroder, Natalie Breez used the Drop Ship to evacuate workers from the construction site, then returned, leading Corroder to believe another team was arriving to face him. William Furno piloted the ship to Mekron City, using the opportunity to dodge between asteroids, and rushed it back to the Hero Factory after Meltdown infected Preston Stormer. The other Heroes of the Alpha Team used a ship to acquire a cure from the planetoid Lunar Tratix. Several ships were used to dispatch the Heroes to New Stellac city for a final stand against Von Nebula and his crew.

A Drop Ship, used by one of the designated Hero Factory Pilots, was once used against Vapor, providing cover for Dunkan Bulk while Furno drove his Furno Bike to assist.

Stormer, Breez, Furno, and Surge took a Drop Ship to a refueling station besieged by the Fire Lord. They attempted to use the ship to evacuate the civilians, but were cornered by the Fire Lord. Surge drew fire away, and the Heroes escaped with the station workers. Surge later used another ship to ram into the Fire Lord while he was trying to absorb more power, allowing the Heroes to take him into custody.

Features

Drop Ships come in several sizes. One is a single manned vehicle, which carries a normal sized Hero Pod. A larger vehicle is also flown, which is capable of holding entire teams of Heroes and the larger Hero Pods.

Drop Ships are equipped with an H-Force Launcher and use a laser sighting system to find their targets. The pilot is protected by a cockpit vario-field, and there is a holding bay underneath the ship to accomodate a Hero Pod, so that they can be transported and deployed for missions.

Set Information

Set 7160 Drop Ship was released in mid-2010. The set included 390 pieces, including 13 pieces for building an unnamed pilot and four silver spheres which could be loaded into the set's launcher to serve as ammunition. Additionally, the set included a sticker sheet for decorating some of the pieces. The launcher could be fired by spinning a wheel on the top. Additionally, on the underside the set had a handle, a trigger, and two grasping arms which could be used to carry a canister from any Hero set (representing a Hero Pod). The canister could be dropped by pulling the trigger.
