Hero Factory Canon Contests?

(I don’t know if this is in the right category so sorry to the mods if it isn’t)

I like HF more than Bionicle so I figured I’de see if anyone would be interested in seeing one.

What would there be to canonize?

There’s several dozen heroes who only got names and teams, and one vaguely defined mission.
Plus several characters from the novels by Greg.

Now I do know there are a ton, a ton, of HF characters that have no true depiction. A lot of them are just mentions in the radio show or other random reports. And while I would love to see fan MOCs of them…I don’t think they need to be canon. I think that goes against the spirit of Hero Factory itself.

Hero Factory invites you to build your own heroes to fight the monsters and villains plaguing you. There is a Hero, a Hero Recon, an entire team, or even several teams worth for everyone. The galaxy of crime to defeat is open for you to do whatever you wish, whatever form of hero that takes. They had the Hero Hotline in a sense to say that, yes, your villains are real to the Hero Factory and yes, they will take care of them.

So in that sense, even characters who did not appear in any HF media (such as your heroes and villains) are canon. Perhaps not canon to the show and story Lego specifically showed us, but accepted and encouraged as such none the less. It’s there already, it need not be bound as it already has accepted it.

For contests, yes, go forth. It could be a ton of fun, especially with all the villains. But I would not worry about making them official canon, Hero Factory didn’t worry about it either.

One thing at a time I say.

I mean, I’d be down, just not sure how much demand there is.

I unironically support this.

HF FM still remains as the hands-down best peice of comedy Lego’s ever made.

I mean, possibly Greg, but I’m not sure how involved he was in the overall story.

I remembered that we never found out who the mysterious dark figure at the end of Breakout was, so I’m definitely on board, because I need to know what he actually looked like…
