Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today we are bringing you another preview from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past set, Sentinel Alpha 3! I, for one, look forward to our new robot overlords!\
Sentinel Alpha 3 has three point values at 300/200/100. He has the Flight symbol, Indomitable symbol, Giant Size symbol, and also has a 7 range with 3 targets. Who knew robots could be so much fun? Sentinel Alpha 3 starts with the trait Sentinel Squad Leader that allows friendly characters with “Sentinel” in their name, the Robot keyword, and a lower point value can use the Capture ability. The lowest point character that can be utilized for this is the 20-point golden age rookie UL010 Sentinel Trooper, the lowest point in modern age is the 50 point rookie CW005r Sentinel.
Sentinel Alpha 3 on his 300-point dial starts with Running Shot, Impervious, and 2 special powers. The first is his special attack power Attack Protocol Gamma which says give Sentinel Alpha 3 a free action and choose one: Energy Explosion, Force Blast, or Pulse Wave. Sentinel Alpha 3 can use the chosen power until your next turn. This combined with his 7 range and 3 targets can make for a bad day for opposing characters! His special damage power Anti-Mutant Programming states Sentinel Alpha 3 can use Outwit and this power can’t be countered. Each time Sentinel Alpha 3 counters Outwit or a power that allows Outwit to be used, it can use Outwit again this turn. With this you can outwit an entire teams outwit, then outwit a defensive power! His 300-point dial has 3 additional clicks.
At 200 points, Sentinel Alpha 3 starts his first 2 clicks with the same special powers, but changes movement to Charge and defense to Invincible for his first 2 clicks at 200 points and then his 3rd click at 200 points transitions to Force Blast, Energy Explosion, and Probability Control. By the way, earlier when I said robot overlords, I meant to say robot protectors.
At his 100-point dial, Sentinel Alpha 3 starts with Force Blast, Energy Explosion, Invincible, and Probability Control. In fact, if you notice, you can use Force Blast and/or Energy Explosion for his entire dial! For his next 2 clicks he trades down to Toughness. For his last 2 clicks he regains Running Shot and his special attack power Attack Protocol Gamma and Regeneration.
Sentinel Alpha 3 has consistent high attack and damage stats with them never falling below a 9 attack and 3 damage, but going as high as 12 attack and 5 damage. His keywords are Days of Future Past, Future, Robot, and Sentinel. You should easily be able to create either a named or generic theme team with him and his varying point values.
Thanks for reading and be sure to continue to check back as we preview more figures from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix: X-Men – Days of Future Past set, make sure you come back next week even if you have to claw yourself out to do it!
