Type Promotional Guide
Year(s) released 2010

The Hero Factory Promotional Magazine was an introductory guide to Hero Factory that was included with the July–August 2010 issue of LEGO BrickMaster Magazine.


The secret code included in the magazine

On the second inside page is an introductory letter from Akiyama Makuro, addressed to the magazine subscriber, who is someone who will join the Hero Factory. It also provided a brief insight on Hero Factory's history, the Hero Core, how Heroes are created, and more. The magazine then featured short profiles and quotes for both Hero canister sets and one-villain sets for 2010 and gave short profiles for vehicles. The magazine then transitioned into discussing and promoting an online game called Mission: Von Nebula. On the last page is a key to translate coded Hero Factory messages; those messages appeared in the LEGO Magazine with which the guide was packaged, as well as a few following issues in 2010. The only Lego Magazine issues that had the messages are the July-August issue, the September-October one, and the November-December one. The messages reveal promotional images of Preston Stormer, William Furno, and Mark Surge, respectively.
