6222 Core Hunter is a Hero Factory set released in July 2012.


Core Hunter has a colour scheme of black and red. He uses a pincer-like weapon to remove Hero Cores. His other weapon is a silver-topped blaster with a green ball, and an ammunition belt connects to it. His arms are shorter than other Hero Factory sets, with a regular-size upper arm and a ‘neck-extension’ piece for the forearm. He wears bulky armour with curved spikes on his upper arms, and another armour piece built the same way on his back. Core Hunter’s legs are similar to Bulk's, being the length of the larger Heroes’ legs, and they resemble Bulk in the way that the lower leg armour parts are constructed the same way, but in different colours. His feet are black 2.0 feet. The villain’s body plate is totally black with no markings, and connecting to the place where, on a Hero, a Hero Core would go, a chest-plate like Black Phantom’s is put. Both of his weapons have a straight red spike on them. The head-piece is extended a little way outwards by a neck-extension identical to his forearms, is transparent orange, and a black multi-vision helmet with six eyeholes connects to the cross-hole on top of it.


According to the book titled “The Doom Box” written by Greg Farshtey, Core Hunter was once a Hero but went rogue much like Von Nebula. Apparently Core Hunter grew a reputation for surgically removing Hero Cores soon afterward and was eventually arrested by the Hero Factory.

During the time of the Breakout, Core Hunter never left the planet (unlike the other villains) and went to Makuhero City to prey on the heroes who were sent to take him down. It is currently unknown if he was ever stopped or not, but sometime afterward he did manage to escape or leave.

Eventually leaving, Core Hunter went to recover the mega weapon known as the Doom Box alongside various other villains. Created 5,000 years ago the Doom Box was supposed to have the power to destroy anything and anyone the user wanted to. When it was created it had a major flaw; it could not be stopped. So, the leader of the team; Actor; who created it used an energy axe to split the box into three pieces. The one that didn’t want to destroy the box; Deben; drew a map of the universe for where they hid the pieces, which got traded and sold all the way down to Core Hunter.

Core Hunter is an extremely methodical and precise villain, with surgical intelligence and a perfectionist attitude towards his job. His obsession with removing hero cores eventually developed into his criminal specialty, and he is known to have a growing lust for more and more Cores to add to his collection.

Bio This is a description taken from Do not modify it.

And he does exactly that - hunts Hero cores. Tough job but someone’s gotta do it. For Core Hunter, it’s actually more a matter of having turned his hobby into a career. It’s always nice when that happens. In this case except for the heroes, of course. He cherishes his collection of “used” cores from defeated Heroes, and his hunger for more just keeps growing stronger and stronger. Unfortunately he is also fairly smart, and very much a perfectionist. Evil and smarts are a weird combination. You can’t help but wonder how much he could have accomplished if he had used his brains for something good... Description This is a description taken from Do not modify it.
