Hero Factory: Rise of the Rookies is a splendid first chapter in the Hero Factory saga. The characters have a degree of depth, the villains are entertaining, the set pieces are truly spectacular (The drone in New Stellac City, the Ambush in Mekron City, the attack on Lemus 2 and the assault on the Tantalus 5 prison site are worthy of a normal movie) and the whole cast is voiced superbly (even though Mark Hamill's turn as Von Nebula and his later one at Black Phantom does sound rather like his rendition of the Joker. Amazing when you remember what he looks like. How can he have a voice like that?). Can't wait for when the other episodes are available on DVD in the UK. I am a LEGO fan and have almost all their CGI features, but this one is truly exceptional.
