Greetings HeroClix fans, and welcome to an exciting preview from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Shredder’s Return set! Today, we’re taking a look at the pre and post-mutation versions of half of one of the most well known villainous duos the Turtle’s have faced, Bebop!
In his pre-mutation form, Bebop is a 50-point piece, with 5 clicks of life, and Improved Movement: Ignores Hindering Terrain. Being a big fan of the tire iron, he is a focused close combat piece, with the standard powers Charge, Flurry, Precision Strike, Combat Reflexes, Toughness, and Exploit Weakness to his credit. Of course, Bebop wouldn’t be the Bebop we all know and love without a way to mutate into his mohawked warthog self – and that’s via his Volunteer to Become Stronger trait. This trait states that when Bebop KO’s an opposing character, rolls a critical hit, or is healed, after actions resolve, you place a Mutagen token on his card and you may roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled. If the result plus the number of Mutagen tokens is 7 or more, replace this character with a character on the same click number named Bebop with a point value of 100 or less, then heal the character 1 click.
In his mutated form, Bebop is a 70-point piece, with 9 clicks of life and a range of 4 squares. His dial is bisected by a defensive power called Banished which appears on his sixth click of life, and transitions his play style drastically. Banished is a stop click, and states that for the rest of the game, Bebop can’t be healed. Before the stop click, Bebop is comfortable in either close or ranged combat situations, with the powers Charge, Sidestep, Invulnerability, Toughness, Perplex, Ranged Combat Expert, and Enhancement. After the stop click comes into play, he sees his damage output drop to zero, but in exchange for that he picks up Support to go along with his already present Sidestep and Toughness.
That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Tune in next time for more exciting previews as the release date of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Shredder’s Return comes ever closer!
