Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome back to the warmth of the steam tunnels as we preview more exciting figures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Shredder’s Return! This third Gravity Feed set adds even more characters from the 32-years of TMNT history, based on both the comics and animated TV series. Today we have a new version of one of the Turtles’ most reliable companions, Fugitoid.
The third iteration of Fugitoid we have in HeroClix is from the 2012 Animated Series and plays a different role than his previous versions. This trusted TMNT Ally is again the brilliant mind of a Scientist trapped inside a Robot body and is a vital part of the Turtles’ space adventures.
Instead of being an offensive force on his own or a super taxi like the previous Fugitoids, this version is more of a teammate to help influence the battle while still being somewhat of a durable threat. Fugitoid possesses Telekinesis on his first click to help get your allies into place. He can also use it’s other functions like placing enemies or objects – possibly even using objects in attacks to circumvent his 0 damage! He doesn’t have to be conservative while moving characters or objects with Telekinesis either since he possesses Indomitable to ignore pushing damage. He also has a very distinct version of Probability Control in his special damage power, Crisis Time Machine. This power lets Fugitoid use Probability Control, but in addition to that also grants the ability to reroll a critical hit or critical miss rolled by any character within range and line of fire.
After the initial click of Telekinesis, Fugitoid has two clicks of Incapacitate, which will be useful to lock down opponents near or far with his range of 6. Fugitoid retains his multiple use status on clicks 3 and 4 as he gains Outwit instead of the special Probability Control.
Fugitoid has no speed powers until clicks 4 and 5 where he has Force Blast, which will usually only be useful to push back adjacent opposing characters since he has a 0 damage value for his entire dial. On the defensive side of things, Fugitoid begins with Invulnerability and a respectable 17 defense before switching to Toughness for 3 clicks and then his last click reveals Regeneration to help Fugitoid get back to health and continue to impact the game.
At 65 points, this version of Fugitoid will be easy to fit on Turtle teams by players that enjoy the type of strategy this type of figure will require. Rather than being a one-trick taxi or standard attack piece, Fugitoid has abilities to greatly affect the status quo on the map – all with 0 damage the whole way down the dial.
That wraps it up for today. Stay tuned for our next preview for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Shredder’s Return Gravity Feed. Now get on the phone dude, the pizza won’t order itself!
