Greetings HeroClix Fans,
Welcome to another exciting preview from the eagerly anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix set! Today, we’re looking at one of the greatest allies the Turtles have ever had – that streetwise vigilante with a penchant for sporting goods, Casey Jones!
Casey is a 30-point piece, with 5 clicks of life, and the keywords of Brute and TMNT ally. At this point cost, he fits in nicely on TMNT ally themed teams, rounding out an already formidable squad of the shelled brothers. And, in coupling with our lead preview for this set, he pairs nicely with his best buddy Raphael!
His intense (and frequently confrontational) bromance with Raphael is represented by his trait, Alright, Shorty, Show Me What You’ve Got. This trait gives Casey a Unique Modifier which allows him and a friendly character named Raphael, a +1 attack modifier when they’re adjacent to each other. This boosts Casey into double digits across the board for attack if you’re able to keep him and Raphael adjacent to each other and working in harmony to kick Foot Clan butt!
Alongside that trait, Casey Jones sports some good standard powers, with Charge, Flurry, Willpower, Combat Reflexes, and Battle Fury. With that, he has a special power called Goongala Goongala, which states that when you give Casey Jones a close combat action and he makes an attack, should he hit with that attack, you would then be able to move him up to two squares away, allowing him to break away automatically. At this point, you’re then able to make another close attack, with his attack and damage values modified by +1!
There you have it, Shellheads, our look into one of the most popular characters from the TMNT mythos, Casey Jones! To go along with this power-packed 30-point dial, we’re quite partial to the sculpt of Casey, capturing his classic look from the original Mirage comics – a menacing vigilante in a hockey mask, with sporting equipment to spare!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this look into the world of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix set – we’re incredibly excited for its release and we know, based on the reactions to the sculpts shown at New York Toy Fair, that you are as well. Until next time, may all your hits be critical!
