Giant-Size X-Men Heroclix Toys 'R'' Us

Giant-Size Action Returns to Toys R Us, Part II!

Greetings HeroClix fans!

Set your “way back machine” to September 23rd, 2011; we announced that three new colossal figures would be making their way into Toys R Us stores.   However, we did not announce “when” or “where” these figures could be found.  We are pleased to share with you all that “when” is any time now and “where” is your local Toys R Us here in the United States as well as online.

As with all mass market releases, it’s difficult to pinpoint a specific date when the next wave of TRU colossal figures will be hitting the shelves of your local TRU, but we estimate that it will be anytime within the next two weeks.

 

As we’ve mentioned in the past,  we’re happy to partner once again with Toys ‘R’ Us.  Thank you one and all for your continued support!

Giant-Size X-Men Action Comes to Toys “R” Us!

Greetings HeroClix fans!

Soon, HeroClix fans in select areas all over the country will be able to stroll into their local Toys ‘R’ Us and find something very “X-citing”.  We are very pleased to announce that beginning next week (week of May 15th and forward) there will be three new versions of some very familiar (and COLOSSAL!) figures! That’s right! Giant-Size X-Men colossals have come to Toys ‘R’ Us and they’re taking no prisoners.  With all new dials, point values, and collector numbers, these three colossal figures are a brand new addition to your HeroClix arsenal!

Without further ado, let’s begin with the Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive Sentinel Mark V!

Playable at both the 150 and 300 point values, this version of the Sentinel Mark V is ready to capture and contain the mutant threat!  With consistent combat values and an array of offensive and defensive powers and abilities, your opponents will think twice before tangling with this Sentinel Mark V.

The Coordinated Assault trait is definitely an asset when the Mark V is played as part of a  larger force: the ability to make a free attack against an opposing figure is never to be underestimated! And be sure to also consider the Mark V’s Capture Coils special power when you’re building your force; re-positioning your opponent’s figures mid-battle via a successful ranged combat attack is extremely advantageous. 

And let’s not forget the Indomitable ability! Yes indeed, this Mark V Sentinel is ready to bring the fight to the enemy!

Next up is the Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive Sentinel Mark II!

Like the Mark V above, the Sentinel Mark II can be played at two different point values, 100 and 300 points! The Sentinel Mark II has aggressive combat values and an array of great powers and abilities, as well as a slightly longer range (8 as opposed to the Mark V’s 7) with two targets.  Consider also the Indomitable ability and the future’s looking pretty grim for the opposition!

At both point values, the Mark II begins play with the Search and Destroy special power which enables it to not only use Outwit to counter powers on opposing figures, but to also increase its damage dealt with a successful attack by +1 for each action token on the Mark II’s target. 

But that’s not all! The Sentinel Mark II also possesses the Coordinated Capture trait which allows it to assist whenever another friendly figure with the Robot keyword makes a successful attack.  If the target of that attack is within 8 squares and has no action tokens when it was attacked, the Mark II allows you to place an action token on that hit figure once actions resolve! Tactically, there are many great uses for this trait and we’re sure the Mark II will be a welcome addition to your robot teams!

Last, and certainly not least, we have the oldest recorded mutant (and someone who should be on every Sentinel’s “hit list”), the Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive Apocalypse!

At 300 points, Apocalypse is a force to be reckoned with! As you could probably anticipate, Apocalypse begins play protected by Impervious and his  Eternal Schemes trait provides some additional incentive for your opponents to not use their Outwit when this ancient mutant is around.  Eternal Schemes places an action token on any opposing figure within 4 squares that uses Outwit, even if they didn’t target Apocalypse himself!

Apocalypse also begins play with the Master Manipultor special power which allows him to use Shape Change and Telekinesis.  That’s not all though, becuase if Apocalypse uses Telekinesis to move an opposing figure and his (successful) attack roll is doubles, Master Manipulator also deals damage equal to Apocalypse’s damage value!

Apocalypse possesses a wide array of offensive powers to target his foes both near and from afar.  With two targets and 7 range, few figures will be able to hide from Apocalypse, and the Indomitable ability allows him to act without fer of pushing damage (so long as he doesn’t already have two tokens on him anyhow)! Mid- and end-dial Regenerate work to keep Apocalypse on the battlefield, while Impervious and Invulnerability absorb some (if not all!) of the damage dealt by your opponent’s figures.

As you can see, these three new colossals are here to fight and can bring some serious firepower to many different strategies.  So where can you find them? Just check below for a full list of all of the Toys ‘R’ Us stores, by state, that will have Apocalypse, the Sentinel Mark II, and the Sentinel Mark V exclusives available for sale:

1st Annual Clix for Kids Charity Event benefitting the Austin Children’s Shelter; An After-Action Report

Hello HeroClix Fans!

On April 29th HeroClix players from all over the Austin-area and beyond gathered at the Dragons Lair Comics & Fantasy to participate in First Annual Clixs for Kids Charity Tournament benefiting the Austin Children’s Shelter.

We invited Mike Wethington (blueatoll on HCRealms.com) to offer up some thoughts on the event, and he has graciously provided us with the following report:

“It was a good night for the kids! Between our online raffle (thanks to all you clixers on the Net!) and our in store tournaments (Heroclix and Warhammer Fantasy) we raised $2483.53 to buy toys, comics, and games for the kids!

Our turnout was solid as we had 20 people attend the event from as far away as Killeen and San Marcos. We’ll get more people next year as the event grows but 20 is a good start!

Buy-in to the tournament was $10.00 and our store was loaded with tons of $1 coins for the event. Nothing is quite as satisfying as the sound of the plink, plink, plink of cold hard cash (with apologies to Sally Brown) hitting the table. Everyone stocked up on change and got down to business.

Rerolls could be done for anything. Literally it was the ‘Hand of the Gods’ and could be used to reroll everything from map rolls (more on that later) to Super Senses to that pesky Crit Miss, all without line of sight, action tokens, or any other requirement.  If a dollar hit the table from anyone (even a spectator) you had to reroll them bones.

The format was 300 points, Modern Age, 3 Actions. We’re a diverse bunch here in Austin and fortunately there were very few, if any, min/max teams. Everyone seemed to take the time to build a team that fit their play style more than a sure-win. With the exception of two Pheonix teams, no one played exactly the same build.

We played 3 rounds and then the top two W/L and Points players faced each other in the finals.

Probably the most fun team of the night came from ProMutant (on HCRealms) with a team he called “The Babysitter”.

The Babysitter – 292 Points

  • Energizer
  • Mass Master
  • Lightspeed
  • Gee
  • Leech
  • Molly Hayes
  • and Nico Minoru as “The Babysitter”!

As you’d expect from the Power Pack, he managed to only rack up 37 points in three rounds but Energizer ate up a lot of debris Magneto was hiding in. Why did he play it? Simple, “For the Kids.”

The first round got underway and everyone was spending money freely in an attempt to get that important first win! The first round netted over $115 in rerolls.

Our second round got started and that round saw the least amount of cash being dropped on rerolls, we only pulled in $74 on rerolls in that round as everyone was saving their money for the big push and the finals.

After a 10 minute break to restock on change, the third round started up and people really began to throw the cash around. We made $147 in that round and as their games began to end, people started dropping money on the outcome of other games, “For the Kids.”

Our final round was between beecaveman and odietamo. The were each playing themed teams:

Beecaveman – Mystical Team – 298 points

  • Jason Blood (AE Etrigan)
  • Osiris
  • Isis
  • Sargon the Sorcerer
  • Tombstone
  • Phone Booth
  • Kinetic Accelerator

Odietamo – Martial Artist Team – 298

  • Nightcrawler
  • Captain America
  • Mask Killer
  • Diana Prince
  • Question
  • Shield Disrupter
  • Dynamostat
  • Kinetic Accelerator

The game got off to a quick start as there the map roll generated cash. Odietamo and spectators paid $3.00 to get the map roll as beecaveman was looking to nerf Captain America on a map like the Prison.

Finally, the SI Crashsite map was selected and the game got underway.

Initially there was a lot of maneuvering for position on the map with Osiris and Nightcrawler parking on their respective Kinetic Accelerators while Jason Blood rapidly Telephone Boothed into Etrigan. Finally it was time for an attack. Osiris rolled on the Kinetic Accelerator first. A spectator (Cbowen333) paid for him to reroll until he rolled a 5 and blew the darn thing up. Osiris then went after Nightcrawler. Between beecaveman’s two PCs and a bunch of cash, Osiris still ended up missing Nightcrawler.

Then it was Nightcrawler’s turn, he also jumped off the Kinetic Accelerator and the same spectator (cbowen333) paid until it also blew up, this time with a 6. Nightcrawler went after Osiris and managed, after some cash hit the table, to hit him and drag him back to the waiting horde. Of course, he took a point of mystics for his trouble and didn’t have any x-men buddies to pump him back up.

Where was Captain America in all of this? Biding his time and avoiding mystics damage.

I should note, through all of this, Isis calmly sat parked in her starting area waiting for her little brother to go down.

Once Osiris finally went down, after taking the Question with him and dealing a ton of mystics damage, it was Sargon’s turn to die. Beecaveman moved him up and attempted to hit Nightcrawler (he needed a 9) with everyone’s favorite turbaned magician. $38 later, with both players tapped out and many spectators pulling up empty pockets, Sargon missed for the last time. What was amazing about this, besides the constant refrain as a dollar hit the table, “It’s for the Kids” was how many times Sargon actually hit Nightcrawler. It must easily have been over 70% of the time.

Well, Sargon went down swinging, taking out the Mask Killer before being killed by Captain America (who took mystics damage).

It was Isis’ turn. Mad at the death of her brother, she was pumped and ready to kill a fuzzy elf.  Nightcrawler shapechanged out of the attack and so Diana Prince felt Isis’ wrath.

With a damaged Nightcrawler, damaged Captain America, full strength Isis, and AE’ed Etrigan on the map it got serious. In what can only be described as a battle of roommates, cbowen333 and his roommate Reiner chose sides and started throwing down dollars to make their side win. Eventually, Isis tagged Nightcrawler after another $30 hit the table and that was it for the mutant. With that, time ran out (50 minute round), money had run out, and beecaveman won the tournament on points!

The final round generated another $112 for the kids in rerolls. Lots of action at that table!

Our top prize for the tournament was a complete GSXM LE Set and we also gave away a Dr. Manhattan colossal as a door prize. There were tons of other prizes donated, like a Watchmen Set, posters, comics, custom mods, etc. In the end, we had enough for everyone to come away with a prize!

Thanks to everyone who contributed cash, prizes, and time to the event. We made a lot of kids happy! Look for an even bigger event next year!”

Unfortunately, there are no pictures to share (so far anyhow) as Mike’s camera is being quite selfish and won’t share them! Regardless, it is evident that the event was a great success and that the Austin Children’s Shelter and the community-at-large is very lucky to have Mike and the area-HeroClix players! Keep up the wonderful work everyone!

Everyone who comes to play will be going home with some special rewards. While the First Place winner will be awarded an exclusive award, all of the finalists will be selecting from a pool of prizes that will include:

  • LEs from a vintage HeroClix set
  • Dark Phoenix Big Figure
  • Factory sets
  • Chase figures
  • Watchmen collection
  • Buy-It-By-The-Brick figures
  • AND MORE PRIZES TBA!

But that’s not all! For those players more interested in casual HeroClix events, or those who don’t necessarily make top 32, there will be other events running throughout the afternoon!

Beginning at 11:30a, Battle Royales will be offered in four-player pods.  Cost of this event will be $10 for a each player and there will be a variety of boosters from different sets to choose from.  Battle Royales will be offered throughout the day.

There will also be a “non-random sealed” event offered at Clixamania.  For a small cost,  you will be provided with bag of figures.  Now, be prepared as you will see figures that my come as a bit of suprise and perhaps one or two that you my have forgotten about! Don’t worry though, everyone will have access to the very same figures in their bags! Now it remains to be seen who can make the best team from the same pool of figures! Prove you’ve truly got what it takes and led your force to victory!

Figures will be available from several different HeroClix expansions, and seating for this event will be limited depending on space.  Cost for this event will be $5.

We will be sure to update you all closer to the event with more information, but in the meantime here’s a nice summary of the Texas Showdown schedule as well as Organizer contact info should you have questions in the meantime.
