Dunkan Bulk is a powerful Hero and part of the Alpha 1 Team.

Biography

Bulk's blueprint

Bulk was made a part of the Alpha 1 Team, under the leadership of Preston Stormer, one of the two Heroes that Stormer didn't wear down and transfer out.

On one of their missions, the team was tasked with investigated the supposed disappearance of the planet Almaak IV, as reported by the Almaak V government. Team member Jimi Stringer discovered that Almaak IV was only cloaked, and that the Almaak V government was responsible.

Another mission had the team fighting off Cornelius Zo, whose army of Tiger Ants was destroying a city. Bulk attacked the ants with a tank called "the Crusher" and scared them away.

Rise of the Rookies

Trials of Furno

Bulk was part of the security detail for a shipment of C-4000 explosives to Merak 9. The shipment came under attack, and Bulk fought against the two with the rest of the team. After XPlode fled, the Heroes surrounded Rotor and new rookie member William Furno was tasked with cuffing him. Unfortunately, Rotor managed to escape after drawing a concealed weapon.

Core Crisis

After Stormer and the rookie team successfully captured Rotor on Lemus 2, Bulk and Stringer were assigned to repair the damage with rookies Mark Surge and Natalie Breez. The four were then called to stop Corroder at a prison construction site on Tantalus 5. Bulk saved Surge from being crushed under a stack of girders, but was pinned under them himself. Unable to free Bulk, Stringer and Surge set up a Hero Cell, which drained Bulk's core to dangerously low levels. Furno and Breez arrived, and Corroder ran off. Bulk was freed, and recharged back at Hero Factory.

The Enemy Within

When Stormer arrived at Hero Factory infected by nanobots, he went insane, and attempted to escape. Bulk tried to stop him, but almost fell to his death. Though he offered to help Furno continue looking for Stormer in Makuhero City, Furno insisted that he would be better off going with the others to find a cure. Bulk went to Lunar Tratix with Stringer, Surge, and Breez to find the key ingredient for the cure for the nanobots, where he, Surge, and Stringer tried to combat the Tratix Reptoid until Breez calmed it down. Bulk later witnessed Stormer restored to health.

Bulk refitted with a jet-pack, breathing tubes, and a Sonic Boom Weapon

Von Nebula

Stormer led the team to New Stellac City, where they encountered Thunder and Corroder. The three engaged the two villains. The rookie team soon arrived, as did XPlode and Meltdown. A black hole, created by Von Nebula, appeared over the city and disarmed the six Heroes. After Stormer and Furno went into the vortex after Von Nebula, Bulk sought cover with the others until the criminals ran out of ammunition, and the team then launched their counterattack, successfully defeating them. Bulk helped Stringer secure the villains then transported them to Hero Factory, along with the rest of the Alpha 1 Team.

Bulk was eventually given the upgrade to 2.0 form once it had been perfected.

Savage Planet

Bulk, Stormer, Stringer, Furno, and Julius Nex were sent to the planet Quatros to aid the missing rookie Hero Rocka. Bulk was upgraded to 3.0 form, and given wolf attributes. Upon arriving on Quatros, Stormer found the injured Rocka, and Furno tried to engage Witch Doctor, but was defeated. Enslaved beasts then attacked Stringer, Furno, and Nex.

Abilities and Traits

Dunkan Bulk's artificial intelligence is less developed than others, which he sometimes feels self-conscious about, but he makes up for this intelligence deficiency with sheer power. He is able to withstand blows that would destroy armored vehicles. He is reputed to be one of the Hero Factory's strongest active Heroes. Bulk is always ready for a mission, and enjoys fighting for the Hero Factory as much as he enjoys the actual fighting itself.

After his upgrades, Bulk now has wolf-based powers, including enhanced speed, to help him cope with the new jungle environment.

Set 7168 Dunkan Bulk

Tools

Bulk carried a Metal Sphere Shooter in his original build.

During a mission where he fought the criminal Vapor, Bulk was outfitted with a Sonic Boom Weapon, jet-pack, and breathing apparatus in addition to his shooter.

With his new 3.0 form, Bulk now wields wrist mounted blades to complement his fighting style.

Set Information

Set 7168 Dunkan Bulk was first released in 2010 as one of the original Hero sets, which also included Stringer, Stormer, Furno, Breez, and Surge. This set contained 17 pieces. He was also released that same year in the special-edition set 7179 Bulk & Vapour, using 21 of the set's 89 pieces. However, unlike in the original form, Bulk possessed a jet pack, a breathing tube, and a Sonic Boom Weapon in addition to his Metal Sphere Shooter.

In mid-2011 Bulk was released again as set 2182 Bulk 3.0. This version of Bulk contains 30 pieces including an armor piece printed with the name "Bulk 3.0" and a wolf pattern. Parts from Bulk 3.0 and Furno 3.0 can be used to build a combi model based on building instructions available from the Hero Factory website. Like all the Hero sets from this wave, this set's canister includes a code underneath the lid which could be used to unlock online Hero Factory content.
