Greetings, HeroClix fans! One of the best parts about getting to develop for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license is the truly unique and imaginative characters we get to translate into HeroClix. And, truly, none are more unique or imaginative than the Winter WizKids Open Convention Exclusive Figure of Pizza Face!
Pizza Face is a 60-point figure with 6 clicks of life, and for that small purchase cost you’re getting a major return on investment. Right off the bat, you need to take a look at his trait, Living Pizzas. This trait states that at the beginning of your first turn, choose an opponent. Then, place a Living Pizza bystander adjacent to your starting area for each non-bystander character that opponent has on the map – instant team increase! And those anthropomorphic pies are nothing to ignore, either, with Plasticity, Poison, and Support to offer, they’re able to both deep-dish out the damage as well as offer healing to the rest of your team!
That’s not to say that Pizza Face is a one-topping character, though – no, this pie goes supreme! On top of that killer trait, he has a special power which appears on his middle four clicks of movement called Pizza Zombies. This trait states that Pizza Face can use Mind Control as if he had a range of 8 squares. When he does, you can choose to modify Pizza Face’s attack by +3 however, if you do, after actions resolve, the hit target is healed of 1 click. Alongside that special power are a bevy of standard powers that round out his dial – Sidestep, Steal Energy, Willpower, Energy Shield/Deflection, Toughness, Empower, and Exploit Weakness.
Pizza Face can be played on TMNT Villain themed teams, so start considering the possibilities of this cheesy ne’er do well on your already formidable band of bad guys. As mentioned earlier, Pizza Face will be available at the 2017 Winter WizKids Open events, so be sure to log into the WizKids Info Network ASAP to search and register for an event in your area! Until next time, Booyakasha!
