Hero Factory set review 01: Furno Bike
About this creation
Hello fellow MOCers. Welcome to my review on the brand spankin' new Furno Bike, from Lego's newest theme, Hero Factory. I'm going to be doing the first review on this set for MOCpages. And as soon as I get more Hero Factory sets & figures, I'll most likely do reviews on them too. Now, I'd like to apologize for my absence of MOCs lately. I have not been busy, I often despise taking photos. But no worries, soon I shall post more MOCs and HF reviews! because I'm now using my sisters better camera! and this better backgound! so a lot more MOCs will be coming.

Now, first off, I'm really excited about all the Hero Factory stuff! and I really like the idea and the theme! I've heard a couple of people who don't like how it's "replacing Bionicle", and I suppose it is, but you gotta look at the bright side to it! And anyways, Bionicle has gone on for years, sure, we're all gonna miss it, but it's gotta end eventually. And Bionicle may be over, but atleast they have these figures, which are very similar. Mostly, I gotta say I really miss Toa Mahri, it was my favorite Bionicle series, and I really loved the deep undersea look.


But anyways, let's get back onto the review. I have to say, this set is fairly impressive, especially for only $29.99 (in the US atleast). I measures around over 12 inches long, a little over 2 inches wide (in the mid-section), and around 4 and a half inches tall. It includes Will Furno, who is about 6 inches tall. Unfortunately, the Will Furno figure that comes with the bike does not include his leg armor, the new feet, or his weapon that are seen in the separate figure. Instead, he has different feet, and the limbs are red instead of orange.



The bike itself is great! as you can see, they used an orange Bohrok windscreen for the window (or head cover, windscreen according to Bricklink). The wheels are new, the only other set they were ever seen in is the Motorbike set. They are still new though, not used much yet. The normally chrome colored parts are now a shiny grey, which is also new, and a nice color. Another nice piece (which has actually been around for years) is the Technic ball joint with an axle connector in it that goes ALL the way through, so there's no more loose axles! I'm glad that type of Technic ball joint exists! (it's used in the kickstand). Other than the great pieces, it's really just a nice looking build! I really like the color, and how the Technic bars are all bent in different directions to give it a nice shape. It rolls very well, and the Thornax launchers fire nicely (which now shoot different balls, which are probably just red Zamor spheres). The only real complaint I have about the set, is the steering of the bike, it's a little loose. I think it would've maybe been better if the steering was connected to the handlebars, so it's not loose, and when you try and turn the bike, Will's arms would turn too (although probably not very smoothly).




























All and all, I give the set about a 9/10. I think they could've kept Will's leg armor, while still changing the feet to clip on like they do (though, I don't actually know, I'll have to try it if I get a separate Will Furno figure). And the steering could've been a little better designed (like maybe with a removable rubber band or something, to make it spring back to the middle after turning). But besides that, the set is awesome! and it's definatelly worth buying! if you want one, try looking at Toys R Us, if it's not on the normal shelves, look above the shelves (either in the storage cabnets, or on top of the whole shelf). I found mine on top of the shelves. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my review, sorry if it's a little long, but I'll probably be doing more reviews on even more Hero Factory sets, so seeya next time!

Edit: Duncan Bulk review coming soon.

Good. Bionicles first started as a line of robots without flexibility. Same as HF. In the future Heroes will be same thing as our loved Bionicle.

Quoting Alex Mac I see they finally made a kickstand! That's definitely a winning feature, personally, I haven't had the time or money to get one of the new sets, but I seriously can't wait. Nice review!
Thanks! I might not do ALL of the HF reviews, but I hope to, I'm still very interested in the figures.

Great review. I probably would have bought this set for MOC fodder, but it's a little too pricey for me.
