Lego Hero Factory: The Doom Box by Greg Farshtay

Hero Factory: Boom Box

The Doom Box by Greg Farshtay

Reviewed by Caleb

Like a box, the Doom box is broken into 3 pieces that could destroy an entire galaxy when it's put together.  The inventer of the Doom Box had Core Hunter absorb its energy. The Doom Box was built to be controlled, but it was uncontrollable. The Hero Factory heros have to find Core Hunter before he finds all the pieces and attemps to destroy the world. Core Hunter's plan is to kill all the heros, good guys, and the entire world.

Caleb gives this book 4 stars.
