Heroclix Preview Street Fighter

The Main Man Returns!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we spotlight one of the galaxy’s most misunderstood and maladjusted bounty hunters.  We are pleased to present the Last Son of Czarnia, the Main Man himself, Lobo!

Lobo begins play rushing headlong into battle with Charge as he tears into the opposition.  If his enemies try to remain out of arm’s reach, Lobo relies on his Hook, Line, and Massacre special power to drag them in close and deliver a beatdown as only Lobo can!

Initially Lobo relies upon his Invulnerability, and then Toughness, to protect himself from harm.  Early- to mid-dial, Lobo gains Blades/Claws/Fangs briefly before moving into his Lazy Dawg special power, which grants Lobo Flurry and the ability to potentially deal up to 5 damage on his second attack!  Lobo also gains Probability Control mid-dial, demonstrating his ability to find victory even in the most inopportune of circumstance.

Late-dial Lobo smacks his foes down with Close Combat Expert and then gains the deadly combination of Charge, Blades/Claws/Fangs and Exploit Weakness!

At 169 points Lobo is a potent addition to a variety of strategies and team builds.  Consistent and deadly combat values as well as an aggressive power selection make Lobo a deadly adversary, however his abilities don’t end there! Lobo’s Blah Healing Factor Blah trait allows him to heal one click of damage as a Free action at the start of each of your turns, ensuring that Lobo will go the distance during your battles!

That’s all we have for today, we hope you’ve enjoyed this latest preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix release, Superman! Join us later this week as we spotlight another misunderstood creature, the mysterious guardian of Green.  Until then, keep on Clixing!

Happy Street Fighter Release Day!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

I can still remember the day I walked into the local arcade to see all the other kids huddled around the newest “hot game”.  There weren’t a lot of one on one fighting games on the market at the time, and to say we were all instantly hooked would be putting it mildly.  It was the summer of 1987 and Street Fighter had come into our lives.

Flash forward close to 25(!) years and that one arcade classic has spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs.   As a longtime comic book and video game fan, I didn’t think I could be more excited for a new Street Fighter game! (Boy was I wrong!)

When WizKids announced plans for their very own Street Fighter expansion for the HeroClix brand, all I could say was “Holy COW!” Would I now be able to bring the world of the “Tiger Uppercut!” and “Hadouken” to my HeroClix games?  The answer? A resounding “YES!!!”

Set to debut in stores everywhere today, Street Fighter Heroclix is a fully compatible expansion for the Heroclix game and is available as a single figure booster product as well as an accompanying Starter set!  Street Fighter will introduce more than 2 dozen figures into the HeroClix universe, each with their own unique dials, dynamic sculpts, and signature moves!

To whet your appetites a little, we’ve included the figures from the Street Fighter HeroClix six-figure starter below for your enjoyment:

 

 

 

Enjoy the Release Day everyone, and may all your “Hadoukens” find their targets!

On the Road…Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?

That is one of my favorite lines from a movie (can you guess which movie?) but it also leads me to answer a question that has been on a lot of player’s minds recently.

How Do I Get Those Wonderful Convention Prizes?

So in the interest of letting the players know, let’s explain how it’s going to work.

At Origins Game Fair 2011, players will be able to win prizes in the following fashion:

Battle Royales will get the winner a random Horsemen of Apocalypse as a prize.

National Grinders are an 8-person, 3 round Swiss format tournament.  In the third round, 2 undefeated players will be playing off and the winner gets a seat at the National Finals on Saturday and his choice between 2 random Horsemen of Apocalypse and the loser gets the other Horsemen.

GSX Superbooster Event will get prizes for each player from amongst Horsemen of Apocalypse, GSX chases, and Dr. Manhattan Colossal figures.

Captain America Release Event will get Horsemen of Apocalypse as prizes for the top eight players.

National Finals will get the winner a badge for GenCon, a bye into the World Semi-Final Constructed Event on Saturday at GenCon, a set of the Horsemen of Apocalypse, and other prizes.  Second place through Fourth place will get a bye into the World Semi-Final Constructed Event on Saturday at GenCon, another Horsemen of Apocalypse figure, and other prizes.

At GenCon 2011, players will be able to win prizes in the following fashion:

Marvel Battle Royales will get the winner a Moonstone as a prize.

DC Battle Royales will get the winner a Wonder Woman as a prize.

King of the Hill on Thursday through Saturday will get the winner another 2 boosters of product so they can play again.  Make it to the King of the Hill Finals on Sunday and you will get a set of the Horsemen of Apocalypse.  Win the King of the Hill Final and you get to design your own ATA, BFC, or feat with game design plus Moonstone and Wonder Woman.

GSX Superbooster Event will get prizes for the top 16 players from amongst Horsemen of Apocalypse, Wonder Woman, Moonstone, GSX chases, and Dr. Manhattan Colossal figures.

The Constructed Events will get prizes for 1st and 2nd place players from amongst Wonder Woman, Moonstone, and other prizes.

Worlds Grinders are an 8-person, 3 round Swiss format tournament.  In the third round, 2 undefeated players will be playing off and the winner gets a seat at the World Semi-Finals on Saturday and his choice between 2 random figures from a pool of Horsemen of Apocalypse, Moonstone, and Wonder Woman and the loser gets the other figure.

World Semi-Finals will get the top 16 players a prize from the Horsemen of Apocalypse, Moonstone, or Wonder Woman prize pool and a spot in the World Finals on Sunday.

World Finals will get the winner a prize package to include designing your own figure in an upcoming set (subject to licensor and WizKids approval).  Can you design the next Nightcrawler or Black Adam?  In addition the winner will get a set of Horsemen of Apocalypse, Wonder Woman, Moonstone, and other fabulous prizes.  The rest of the top 16 players from Worlds will get prizes from amongst the Horsemen of Apocalypse, Wonder Woman, Moonstone, and other prizes.

As you can see, there are lots of wonderful prizes for our players at Origins and GenCon this year!

For those not attending the conventions, another way to get the Horsemen of Apocalypse, Wonder Woman, and Moonstone will be announced by the end of the year.

Wait, did I forget something…I have to find my cards so I can remember what it was…
