Ronan Stone was one of the later hero prototypes created by Hero Factory before the 1.0 mass-production model. Like his successor, Duncan Bulk, He was built primarily with brute strength in mind. For a weapon, the Hero Factory workers decided to take an old industrial drill head and mount it on his left arm. Although it wasn't what the director had in mind, it ended up working quite well. Luckily, Stone was the only hero available that could wield such a heavy tool. The only drawback was that it consumed a rather large amount of power, so he frequently had to return to headquarters to recharge his hero core. (the 1.0 model was later given a more efficient core to maximize fuel usage.)
Here's a few action poses!
Striking a final heroic stance!
Unfortunately, Stone didn't see too much action before he was mostly replaced by the newer, more efficient 1.0 heroes. For a long time, he simply lay, disused, in the Hero Factory headquarters, wondering whether he would ever get some action again.
Basically, this old-ish MOC was an attempt to create an original Hero Factory character. (What I mainly tried to do was not a lot of standard 1.0 pieces.) More MOCs to come soon! (and by soon, I mean sometime this month.) :P Please rate or leave a comment!
