Greetings HeroClix Fans!
As our very first preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to not “clown” around (sorry, too easy to not make that joke). Obnoxio the Clown makes his first appearance in HeroClix and brings along two of the new pink powers from the 2013 HeroClix Powers and Abilities Card (PAC), Sidestep and Precision Shot. Let’s take a closer look at what Obnoxio the Clown tick:
What clown would not have his Trusty Old Seltzer Bottle (Precision Strike) at the ready to take down those who would stop his fun? Whether it’s to hit that character who has Super Senses or to target a character with Mastermind, you’ll get plenty of use out of this power.
Everyone knows that a clown is your best friend but not so with Obnoxio the Clown; with his So Much For “Friends” (Sidestep), this clown is always ready to move into the action or out of it depending on what you decide to do. And what clown would be complete without a Bag of Tricks? This Trait allows Obnoxio the Clown to bounce around his dial whenever you give a friendly character a power action or you try to heal him! Talk about unpredictable and entertaining!
Obnoxio the Clown’s second Trait, Professional Mascot, allows him to seamlessly join any team since he doesn’t count for or against your theme team build! Professional Mascot also allows Obnoxio the Clown to copy team abilities as your mascot as well.
Obnoxio the Clown is no push over either, thanks to his Don’t Bend the Merchandise (Invulnerability) and Broke My Funny Bone! (Toughness). If that’s not enough, this Clown can change on the fly with his Hand Buzzer (Perplex) or deal out some damage with Goodnight, Nurse! (Blades/Claws/Fangs) power. If the going gets tough for this clown, he can always Figger a Way Outta Here (Leap/Climb).
Gen Con Indy is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize. Now that we are beginning to get into the spirit of the convention season, we’ll have many more previews for you in the coming weeks. Tune in next week for another exciting preview!
