Battle Reports: Ginger Avengers

September 26, 2012


Some time ago, I previewed this team in a F.U.N. Friday installment: Morgan Le Fay (Chaos War) 122 Crystal (Chaos War) 105 Black Widow (Avengers Movie) 50 + Iron Man Briefcase 12 + Secret Avengers ATA 10 =299 points. Here’s how it did. Versus Cleveland’s CW Iron Man, Amadeus Cho, Ka-Zar and GF Dr. Strange on the Prison […]

Token Totin Tuesday: 10th Anniversary (part 3)

September 25, 2012


Continuing the photographic record of just how each character with the Super Strength power can hold their object token somewhere on the sculpt unassisted. After my buggy camera ate a nearly complete set of pix from both 10th Anniversary sets, I’ve been slowly trying to reassemble the record. Here’s the seemingly nondescript detective who’s more […]

Fighting Fire With F.U.N.: Ziran The Tester.

September 21, 2012


Some stuff in this game just ain’t fun. You know the stuff. The powergamer pieces that represent an arms race to ever-more-broken game effects and keep you from playing that ridiculous “Clix With Serious Tail” team-up of Squirrel Girl and Tigra and Beast Boy and Hellboy you’ve been wanting to play. Or that keep you […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: 10th Anniversary (part 2)

September 20, 2012


Continuing Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects, again: The Thing (003) holds his token with the Yancy St. sign. “No hands, Aunt Petunia!” The battle-promoted Green Goblin (018), on the other hand, does use his left hand (his writst, really) to hold the token to his glider! _____ Hopefully, this weekend […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: 10th Anniversary edition (part 1)

September 18, 2012


Continuing the photographic record of just how each character with the Super Strength power can hold their object token (the old ones, anyway. The newer ones found in the Avengers and Dark Knight Rises starter sets might be too thick) somewhere on the sculpt unassisted. I was hoping to get a mass update featuring nearly […]

F.U.N. Friday: 10th Anniversary Checklists

September 14, 2012


If I hadn’t been so preoccupied with watching my Justice League Unlimited Season One box set, I might’ve remembered to post these new checklists on Wednesday when the set(s) went on sale. But better late than never! 10thpocketchecklists (Note: I’ve got Spider-Man 017 listed as an Uncommon.)

Top Ten teams I saw at Dragon*Con 2012

September 7, 2012


I started writing this Top Ten before Dragon*Con (through Labor Day weekend) with no idea of what it’d be on. I flirted with the idea of griping about the Top Ten un-F.U.N. pieces in the game, which seem to be cropping up with a bit too much regularity in the past few rotations. But that […]

Dragon*Con bye round teams: conclusion

September 3, 2012


I’m part of the judge staff at Dragon*Con this year, and I might be called upon to play a bye round in the event of uneven pairings.
