6221 Nex is a Hero Factory set released in July 2012.


Julius Nex has three main colours in Breakout; orange, white, and gunmetal. He uses a plasma blaster with a green sphere in his right hand, and a precision laser cutter, made up of a transparent green aerial, a cord, and a large shield piece. On his left shoulder, he wears a large armour piece, and on his right, a harpoon gun serving as an aerial looms. His handcuffs connect to his right thigh. His body armour is white, and the images on his chest armour are those of technical wires and things. He is the Hero sent on the mission to capture XT4.


Nex was built in the 2.0 upgrade, and carried on through the 3.0 and the Breakout versions. His bio on says that if someone else gets a new ‘toy’ or gadget before him, he is angry. Nex is enthusiastic and exuberant.

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

Nex is quite the communication specialist in the team. He is great at raising public awareness and support of the Hero program through his charming personality, network, and friendship with reporters. Yeah, if this is when you reply “What is he going to do, TALK villains to smithereens?” check his track record. It is, of course, available to the public on HeroFeed and his profile on HeroBook. He is a tech geek and he gets irritated if someone else gets a new “toy” or core upgrade before he does. What? When you interact with the public, you have to look your best. You can’t show up with gear that’s “last year.”


  • Julius Nex is voiced by Jason Canning.
  • This version of Nex’s helmet is similar to his 2.0 helmet, but has been modified to be only one piece, and so it can fit on the Glatorian head.
  • He has a harpoon part on his left arm that serves as an antenna.
  • He did not appear in any sets or media since Breakout. Description This is a description taken from Do not modify it. (visit this item's product page)
