Trivia

  • In the set's prototype, the Skull Staff was longer, like a traditional staff. The Meteor Blaster does not have special features on it, making it look like every other normal Meteor Blaster.
  • The set was the largest published HERO FACTORY model.
  • The set comes with two different pairs of rubber tubes: one pair white and one pair red. One of the pairs is used in the set's construction as the set's "ribs". Some pictures and videos of the Witch Doctor show him having the white tubes and some using red. The white tubes are probably used to show the Witch Doctor not using the Skull Staff while the red ones probably show him doing it. While one of the pairs is used, it is possible to attach the other pair to certain parts of the set for storage.
  • It has an asymmetrical waist for an unknown reason.
  • The set has limited articulation in some of its joints.
