    Reminds me of the Fallen.
    I think I'll get back into Lego's again so I can make the original 13 spawn of Primus.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Oohh that is a nice repaint! It really makes me want to buy these guys. Even though I promised I was done when Bionicle ended :D 

    Can anyone tell me what the smaller black and orange guy is called? Is he from Hero factory as well? I'm having trouble researching the figure online without its proper name.

    Awesome! Thanks for the link. You did a great job on him with the orange paint applications. I thought they were factory applied! I was a bit dissapointed when looking at the pictures on the Lego website that it didn't look as good as yours. If I'm buying that, I'll have some painting to do :)

    wow...thanks so much :) 
    oh and for the small heroes like stringer....don't be dissappointed like i was...the big gun arm is half hollow and no elbow joint..so its alot lighter than i was expecting...
    i picked up these today so i think im going to repaint them as well :)

    if your wanting them, i think they might be at some of the walmarts/kmarts..but ive found all of them out at toys r us..

    Eh. Here, in Quebec, I'll be lucky if I find these kits, let alone the regular heroes. (It might be better this way though. I can't be tempted to buy if they're not on the shelves, right? :D )

    If I do cave in and get Stringer, I've already got plans for him. One thing being filling that hollow gun arm.

    We'll see!
