The 2013 sets have appeared on legoshop.com! check 'em out.

Also, a promotion has been revealed for the second half of July, netting you a free accessory pack with purchase of Hero Factory products from a LEGO store.


March 9, 2013

Christian Faber recently announced on his blogspot that he is teaming up with members of Ghost, the digital animation company responsible for many of the BIONICLE shorts and commercials, for a 22-minute Hero Factory special in 2014! What this means for the future of the line is unclear, exactly, suffice to say that there will be some Hero Factory-related content next year.

March 8, 2013

New LEGO magazines have started appearing in mailboxes. Hero Factory presence is still pretty scarce, but there's a fun page at the end detailing Furno's examination of a Brain.

March 7, 2013

The latest episode of Hero Factory, Brain Attack (marketed as a "webisode", implying a lack of small-screen release) has been uploaded to HeroFactory.com. Check it out, and get to adding info!


February 12, 2013

Eagle-eyed researchers of Hero Factory have discovered a guide book available for pre-order on Amazon.com. The book is written by Greg Farshtey, and will feature a cover with "effects". Don't exactly know what that means, but it promises an in-depth look at the universe, so it's something to look forward to.

February 11, 2013

As mentioned yesterday, we said we would let you know when BZP posted their Toyfair experience of Hero Factory, and here it is!

February 10, 2013

The New York Toyfair was today, giving us our clearest look yet at the summer sets. As most of the information has already found its way onto the wiki, anything official about the new sets is obviously fair game. We'll wait for our friends at BZP to have a proper rundown of the sets before linking to any pictures.

An episode featuring most of the new sets from the Brain Attack wave has also aired in Korea. No word yet on an English language release, but we'll update whenever we have news.

February 2, 2013

Over the past two months, the Hero Factory website has updated, in a complete overhaul of their previous design.

In other news, Toyfair is almost upon us! Several international Toyfairs have already occurred, but we'll wait for a full shakedown of the New York one before adding too much summer information. Unfortunately, this year we won't have a man on the inside, but hopefully we'll still have some images to share regardless.


January 3, 2013

2013 is officially upon us, but Hero Factory appears to be taking it slow; the website has not officially updated yet, and the latest LEGO Club Magazine (out now!) only has a teaser, but other aspects of the main 2013 story have surfaced in places. The newest book, Secret Mission 3: Collision Course, has been released, and the Hero Factory website features a trailer for the upcoming TV episode(s). The latest game based on the series, Brain Attack has been released to mobile platforms, as well.



December 16, 2012

2013 is starting to rear it's ugly head; any legally released information, including names and images, are now allowed on the wiki.


September 22, 2012

The past few days have seen two new updates to the Omega Recon Mission reports, on the LEGO Club Inside Scoop page.

Additionally, the first Secret Mission book has been released! Featuring a mysterious item known only as "The Doom Box", the book showcases Core Hunter and Dunkan Bulk, as well as some brand new characters to the series.

In related news, two more of the Secret Mission books have been announced, titled "Collision Course" and "Robot Rampage".


August 30, 2012

It's that time, folks, when the LEGO Club magazines (as well as the Shop catalogs) start showing up. This bi-month's issue features a spread of Stormer against his current opponent, Speeda Demon.

August 6, 2012

With a return to the old style of news, I'll use this space to alert people to the fact that the first U.S. Hero Factory book (entitled Secret Mission 1: The Doom Box) has a preview of the prologue and first few pages, as well as part of the sneak peak of the second book, Secret Mission 2: Legion of Darkness. Check it out here, then pre-order the book!

In other news, we have received unconfirmed reports that a new set of Breakout episodes (as understood, broadcast in an hour special like Episode 8 and Episode 9) have aired in Korea. More details will be brought as they are learned.

Lastly, HeroFactory.com was updated a few days ago, with brand new bios and weapons for all of the latest sets. Check it out!
