Greetings HeroClix Fans!
We are here today with a very special preview of one of the Chase rarity figures from the next Marvel Heroclix 5-figure booster set, Marvel HeroClix: Uncanny X-Men! We hope this figure meets your X-pectations and gets you X-cited for the upcoming Pre-Release Events! Introducing, Sabretooth and Wild Child!
It’s been a long time coming, but the Age of Apocalypse version of Sabretooth and his feral companion Wild Child are finally coming to your tabletop! This figure brings everything you would expect out of the characters in question and then some. Coming in at 130 points and an impressive 8 click long dial Sabretooth and Wild Child are clearly meant to be a significant focus of your force’s offensive abilities. With movement power options on every click, either Charge or Sidestep, a high attack value that starts at 12 and never drops below 10, and powers that make the damage stick like Blades/Claws/Fangs, Battle Fury (for ignoring opposing Shape Change), and Exploit Weakness these two can scratch and claw their way through almost any opponent. The Indomitable ability will help them ignore pushing damage to get the most out of their dial. Toughness will keep them resistant to Poison and smaller attacks while Combat Reflexes make them hard to hit once they’re in the thick of the fight. Don’t forget those last two clicks of Regeneration to slink back from the fight and lick their wounds.
That’s not all though, Sabretooth and Wild Child have a pair of traits that enhance their savage deadliness. Leashed or Unleashed? tells you what you can do with the removable Wild Child figure; Wild Child begins the game attached to the dial base and while attached gives them Flurry! If you haven’t used Flurry yet in a turn you can give them a free action to remove Wild Child and place him adjacent. Also, at the start of your turn, if Wild Child is within 3 squares of Sabretooth, you can reattach him to the base for free. Wild Child himself is one scrappy kid with the classic combination of Charge, Blades/Claws/Fangs, Combat Reflexes, and Exploit Weakness. This effectively gives you another attacker and harassment piece and gives Sabretooth and Wild Child some extra reach if you need to get to a piece the opponent is hiding away from the fight. So feel free to let the animal loose! Their other trait, Healing Factor gives Sabretooth and Wild Child another healing option, letting them heal 1 damage when they remove action tokens.
That’s all for today, HeroClix fans! Stay with us as we continue to review more of everyone’s favorite mutants and their villains leading up to the debut of the Marvel HeroClix: Uncanny X-Men set.
