FUN Focus: Guardians of the Galaxy [part 2: NECA era]

August 18, 2014


Wow, a little time has passed since the last update that was SUPPOSED to come early last week, not early THIS week. We promise there’s a reason for it (more than standard laziness, anyhow) that’ll be apparent in the near future. Anyway, we continue the FUN Focus on the Guardians of the Galaxy, this time looking […]

F.U.N. Focus: Guardians of the Galaxy [part 1: pre-NECA]

August 8, 2014


 OK, finally time to start this, because Heroclixin’ has seen the film. Liked it, didn’t quite love it. But almost. Recommended. Which clix are recommended, though? Read on. Yellowjacket [Clobberin’ Time 027] 37 A Guardian by keyword alone, she appeared in the 1990s series as a refugee from the 20th Century. And this Vet, coming […]

F.U.N. Focus: Guardians of the Galaxy [intro]

August 1, 2014


In the early days of Heroclixin’, battle reports starring the Guardians of the Galaxy were like a regular thing, practically. Now with a new movie on the scene, equally new HeroClix are emerging. This F.U.N. Focus is a new look at all the pieces available to the theme, set by set. But first, a little bit […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 6: Non-Atlantis pieces]

July 30, 2014


To wrap up this F.U.N. Focus, here are some pieces that lack the Atlantis keyword but could be useful on non-keyword-yet-thematic builds featuring dolphin speed characters. Starting from the cheapest: ^^^^^^^^^^ Mera (Crisis): She’s a got good movement value of 8, but her 15 DV and 7 AV make her the least of the swimming […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 5: Over 125 points]

July 24, 2014


What’s scarier than sharks in the open sea? Orcas. See the apex predators of Atlantis — 126 points and higher — in the post below. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Above 125 points: alpha predators ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Experienced Sub-Mariner (Fantastic Forces): Identical to the 122-point LE, except sporting the Defenders TA, costing 8 more points and strangely missing the three mid-life clicks […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 4: 101-125 points]

July 19, 2014


This  F.U.N. Focus (previous parts here) continues, being a needed update to a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword in much better bite-sized installments. These are the main hitters for this keyword: the killer sharks, the maneaters, the 101-125 bracket. It ain’t safe to go in the water! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 101-125 points: maneaters ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Aquaman (Brightest […]

F.U.N. Focus: ATLANTIS again [part 3: 76-100 points]

July 11, 2014


This new F.U.N. Focus (previous parts here) is a needed update to a far-too-long article reviewing all characters with the Atlantis keyword in much better bite-sized installments. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 76-100 points: sharks ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Namora (Hammer of Thor): At 76 points she’s not only another lite Charging brick from Atlantis, she’s also the first flier and thus a valuable […]
