HeroClix on the Road 2013: Gentleman Ghost

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

For our second HeroClix prize preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to get into the spirit of things; Gentleman Ghost again makes his appearance in HeroClix and brings along with him one of the new pink powers found on the 2013 HeroClix Powers and Abilities Card in Precision Shot.

D-011-GentlemanGhost

James Craddock was a highwayman and robber in England who was lynched but his spirit rose again as the Gentleman Ghost.  Thanks to his new form, Gentleman Ghost could raise Vengeful Ghosts (Trait) to strike back against those who would hurt him.  Thanks to this Trait, Gentleman Ghost is able to bring Vengeful Ghost bystander tokens onto the battlefield to tie up your opponents or to attack them with Exploit Weakness.  The Vengeful Ghost bystander can also maneuver freely thanks to Phase/Teleport (when was the last time you saw a ghost stopped by a wall?) while Super Senses represents its more incorporeal nature.

Like any good (or should we say evil?) shade, Gentleman Ghost’s Invisible, Intangible (Special Power) to hide in the shadows using Stealth and then move using Phasing/Teleport to get anywhere you need to go.  And if someone is foolish enough to let Gentleman Ghost get close, he can use his Chilling Touch (Precision Strike) to attack those who might normally evade his attack or mastermind the damage on to others.

If that’s not enough, thanks to I’ve Seen the Beyond (Outwit), Gentleman Ghost can counter powers that would cause him trouble.  Over time, this Ghost has Learned a Few Tricks (Perplex) to help him adjust his combat values to the fight but if all else fails; he can shoot it out with his Flintlock Pistols (Ranged Combat Expert).

Finally, since his spirit can never truly rest, Gentleman Ghost is Indomitable and will come back to haunt those who attack him with his Mystics team ability.

Gen Con Indy is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize.  Tune in later this week as we see that romance is in the air during this convention season.

2013 Convention Exclusive Conventions Preview

On the Road: Obnoxio the Clown!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

As our very first preview of the 2013 convention season, we decided to not “clown” around (sorry, too easy to not make that joke).  Obnoxio the Clown makes his first appearance in HeroClix and brings along two of the new pink powers from the 2013 HeroClix Powers and Abilities Card (PAC), Sidestep and Precision Shot.  Let’s take a closer look at what Obnoxio the Clown tick:

M-008-ObnoxioTheClown

What clown would not have his Trusty Old Seltzer Bottle (Precision Strike) at the ready to take down those who would stop his fun?  Whether it’s to hit that character who has Super Senses or to target a character with Mastermind, you’ll get plenty of use out of this power.

Everyone knows that a clown is your best friend but not so with Obnoxio the Clown;  with his So Much For “Friends” (Sidestep), this clown is always ready to move into the action or out of it depending on what you decide to do.  And what clown would be complete without a Bag of Tricks? This Trait allows Obnoxio the Clown to bounce around his dial whenever you give a friendly character a power action or you try to heal him! Talk about unpredictable and entertaining!

Obnoxio the Clown’s second Trait, Professional Mascot, allows him to seamlessly join any team since he doesn’t count for or against your theme team build!  Professional Mascot also allows Obnoxio the Clown to copy team abilities as your mascot as well.

Obnoxio the Clown is no push over either, thanks to his Don’t Bend the Merchandise (Invulnerability) and Broke My Funny Bone! (Toughness).  If that’s not enough, this Clown can change on the fly with his Hand Buzzer (Perplex) or deal out some damage with Goodnight, Nurse! (Blades/Claws/Fangs) power.  If the going gets tough for this clown, he can always Figger a Way Outta Here (Leap/Climb).

Gen Con Indy is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize.  Now that we are beginning to get into the spirit of the convention season, we’ll have many more previews for you in the coming weeks.  Tune in next week for another exciting preview!
