HeroClix Special 4, very last minute changes

Well I had everything readily, typed up and was half way to Heroclix when I received a phone call from Darren. Duo to last moment problems with the brothers Adrian and Michael, there will not be any Heroclix. Beep Beep Beep. Also the brothers might not be able to come that often until the New Year. So the campaign will be a heavy delay however hopeful my and Darren while be able to do some one off games, may be test the 3D map I am planning to make. More details of this map will come in the next “Neoscream’s Life” post. As I am going to be busy on Friday as I will be watching the new Harry Potter film with my mum as she is a big fan of the films, I will not have the time to do any extra DreamClix stuff for this week’s post sadly.

First of the News, sadly the only bit of news this week is that Wizkidz have reviled one more new figure this week for the DC 75th Anniversary set. It was Jonny Quick form the All-Star Squadron. I am not a fan of the figure as it has an activation click. For those who do not know what I mean by activation click, an activation click is a starting click where the character does not have their standard powers. This is normally the character in their human/unpowered state, like the Hulk in his Burse Banner state. You have to push the character to activate them.

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing the Third Hokage from Naruto, Shrieker from Bleach, Buggy the Clown from One Piece and a dial for Kira the LE version of Light Yagami from Death Note. As there is a problem with the video for the first half of the subbed version of episode 6 of the Iron Man anime, I will not be doing any characters this week. However I will be doing a special clix design at the end of this post.

First off is Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage from Naruto. Hiruzen Sarutobi, has been the longest-ruling Hokage, having served two separate terms. He is a peace-loving leader, preferring nonviolent discussions to his advisers' more militaristic suggestions. Throughout the series, he acts as a source of wisdom to younger generations and is one of the few characters to treat Naruto Uzumaki as a person and not just the container of the nine-tailed demon fox. In his youth Hiruzen was known as "The Professor", as he purportedly knew every jutsu in Konohagakure. He was also the teacher of Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade. Orochimaru had always been his favourite student, and Hiruzen could never bring himself to recognize Orochimaru's evil qualities. When Orochimaru invades Konoha years later, Hiruzen fights him to repent for never prosecuting Orochimaru as he should have. When he is unable to win, he robs Orochimaru of his ability to use jutsu, bringing an end to the invasion and thus allowing Hiruzen to die happily. Now the plan for the Third's dial is a good starting click then his states will drop like a break but his last click should be nasty. He should have a trait called "Hokage", Charge, Stealth, a special called “Earth Release Earth Flow River”, Smoke Cloud, a special called "Dead Demon Consuming Seal", a special called "Will of Fire", Super Senses, Range Combat Expert and Outwit.
Hokage: The Third Hokage can use Leadership and Perplex. If he uses Perplex someone with the Konohagakure keyword, it will modify their states by 2 instead of 1.
Earth Release Earth Flow River: The Third Hokage can use Smoke Could. Hindering terrain placed by the Third Hokage is only classed is as water terrain instead of hindering terrain.
Dead Demon Consuming Seal: The Third Hokage can use Blade. If he uses blades, the damage cannot be reduced. Afterward, the Third Hokage will take one click of unavoidable damage.
Will of Power: The Third Hokage can use Willpower, Super Senses and Toughness.
He should have six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 6 with three targets. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords Konohagakure, Ruler and Ninja.

Next is the Hollow Shrieker from Bleach. Shrieker is a Hollow with high intelligence. Like many other Hollows, he is driven to kill; however, he also reveals that he was a murderer before he died. He is extremely manipulative, as he tells Yūichi Shibata that he would revive his mother if he can run away from him for 3 months, just for the pleasure of killing anyone who gets involved with him. He also uses underhanded tactics for battle, as he threatens to blow up Yūichi's cage to prevent Chad from giving chase while he hunts down Rukia. He is also the only Hollow who has shown to have memories of his human life before his death. He also enjoys eating Soul Reapers. He should have Stealth, Leap Climb, a special called "Artillery", Toughness and Outwit.
Artillery: Once per turn as a free action, the Shrieker can put two Leech tokens (SPECIAL tokens) in an unoccupied adjacent square if there are fewer than six Leech tokens on the map and it is within ten squares of Shrieker. At the beginning of your turn, if an opposing character is in the same square as, or adjacent to, a Leech token, you can deal 1 damage to each opposing character in the same square as, or adjacent to, that Leech token and then remove that token from the game. Remove all Leech tokens from the map if Shrieker is OKed.
He should have six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 3 and Range 6 with one target. He should have no TA and the keywords Hollow.

Lastly is the pirate captain Buggy the Clown from One Piece. Captain Buggy, nicknamed Buggy "the Clown", is the ruthless captain of the circus-themed Buggy Pirates, who is known for his love of cannons. He is particularly sensitive when it comes to his big, red, round nose and when insulted, will even resort to killing his own men. Nevertheless, he is beloved by his crew. Years before the series' present, while a member of the "Roger Pirates", he brought a Devil Fruit and a treasure map into his possession. He intended to sell the fruit and to search for the treasure, but Shanks (his former friend) accidentally caused Buggy to swallow the fruit and drop the map into the sea. Buggy holds a grudge against Shanks ever since. The fruit he swallowed was a paramecia Devil Fruit called the Chop-Chop Fruit. Having eaten it, it allows him to separate his body into parts and to control these parts independently of each other as long as they remain in his proximity; and, as long as at least one of his feet is on the ground, he can levitate the other parts. This ability also makes him immune to cutting attacks; any such attack will only separate him into parts. Later in the series, he is captured and put into Impel Down, the undersea prison, and breaks out with the help of Luffy and the other prisoners. He also has a compact cannonball that it seems he shoots out of his shoe called the Muggy Ball. Buggy's current bounty is 15,000,000 Berries. He should have two traits “Devil Fruit Powers” and “Chop-Chop Fruit”, Charge, Plasticity, Blades, Energy Explosion, Mastermind, Range Combat Expert and a special called "Loyal Crew".
Devil Fruit Powers: If Buggy is in water terrain, he loses all his powers and any other traits, his movement value becomes halve, his range becomes 0 and he gains Earthbound power."
Chop-Chop Fruit: Buggy can use Super Senses and all damage from Blades is reduced to 0.
Loyal Crew: Friendly characters under with the Buggy Pirates keyword and within 8 squares can use Willpower if they can’t already.
He should have seven clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 9, Defence 18, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. He should have the One Piece TA and the keywords Pirates, Buggy Pirates, Roger Pirates and Devil Fruit.

Now we have the dial for Kira the LE version of Light Yagami from Death Note. With Kira I did some major changes to what I was originally planning like two new specials that give him multiple abilities.

I am planning on doing for next week’s DreamClix Yamcha and Pu’ar Duo figure from Dragon Ball, Ebisu from Naruto, Momochi Zabuza from Naruto Note and the dial for Acidwire from Bleach that if there is Heroclix next week. If it does not happen I will do, Soichiro Yagami from Death Note, Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball and a dial for the pre devil fruit, "Iron Mace" Alvida from One Piece. Until next time, enjoy.

Oh hang on, I am forgetting something, the bonus clix. This has been one I have been planning for a while but never got round to do it. Stan Lee. Now this should a purple ringed figure (non tournament legal) as this figure would be to Heroclix what Unglued and Unhinged is to Magic the Gathering. He should be something like a comic book day figure or a mail away. Now with his powers I would say he should have these:
Movement special - Stan Lee can use Enhancement and Perplex. When Stan Lee uses Perplex he modifies the value by 2 instead of 1.
Attack Special - Stan Lee can use Mind Control and Incapacitate. When Stan Lee uses Mind Control his Attack value becomes 10 and he does not take feedback damage from Mind Control.
Defence Special - Stan Lee can use Defend and Support. When Stan Lee uses Support his Attack value becomes 12.
Damage Special - Stan Lee can use Outwit and Probability Control. Stan Lee can Outwit TAs and Traits.
Trait - Stan Lee ignores all characters, abilities and terrain for line of sight.
He should have four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 7, Defence 18, Damage 0 and Range 15 with three targets. He should have both the Power Cosmic and Spider-Man and the keyword Comic Book Creator. Now that is it for this post.
