Preview Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One

Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix Series One: Blue-Eyes White Dragon!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Get ready to duel as never before as we begin previews of the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set!  Our inaugural preview from this hotly-anticipated HeroClix set is none other than Blue-Eyes White Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One Gravity Feed!


Blue-Eyes White Dragon begins the game taking the fight to your opposition courtesy of Running Shot.  A long 9-range value will allow it to attack up to 14 squares from where it begins its power action.  Blue-Eyes White Dragon can make a standard range attack with its printed 4 damage, or it can choose to use either Penetrating/ Psychic Blast or Pulse Wave, both granted to it by a special power called White Lightning.  Additionally, when Blue-Eyes White Dragon uses either, after actions resolve, hit characters are given an action token, and if they can’t be, then they are dealt 1 penetrating damage!

Leadership offers the potential to add an action to your action pool, as well as remove an action token from an adjacent friendly figure of a lower point value.   All this, and Impervious to reduce, if not evade entirely, damage altogether.   Blue-Eyes White Dragon will maintain this power set over its first three clicks with only a couple changes to its combat values.

Mid-dial, Blue-Eyes White Dragon switches tactics a little bit; it can now use Hypersonic Speed to make an attack in the middle of his movement, and then get to cover or get to a more strategic position.  Also,  Blue-Eyes White Dragon can now use standard Penetrating/ Psychic Blast to attack its foes, while Invulnerability replaces Impervious for damage reduction.

Late-dial, Blue-Eyes White Dragon may not have a lot of powers, but its attack and damage values climb steadily toward the end of its dial, ensuring its attacks remain devastating!  Blue-Eyes White Dragon’s Pulse Wave is sure to scatter its foes, and Toughness is available to offer a bit of damage reduction.

Blue-Eyes White Dragon possesses the Indomitable combat ability, which allows it to act two turns in a row with no fear of pushing damage.   Also, the Flight combat ability will allow increased maneuverability as well as the ability to carry an adjacent friendly character.   Blue-Eyes White Dragon can be played in theme with figures using the “Seto Kaiba” and Light keywords.   At 200 points, Blue-Eyes White Dragon brings solid consistent combat values and a great offensive power selection to your force; Blue-Eyes White Dragon will be a solid threat opponents will have to watch out for!
