Heroclix 27th of February, Avengers Dissemble

Welcome to another Heroclix post. This week is a 500 points, no feats, no pogs, no ATA, must be themed and the theme must be non-generic. The brothers Adrain and Michael where not going to play is no week as they were busy but Adrain manage to find the time. We had Phil back for this week, but sadly no Luce. Due to the number of players one play had to take a bye each round. Sadly due to Phil leaving early and time we only manage to do three/four rounds in. I will explain the the three/four rounds later.

The theme I used was Green Lantarn as I wanted to build a team around the new Green Lanterns from 75th Anniversary. Sadly I could not use Saint Walker due to the face he would cost too much and that the he only has the Blue Lantern Keyword and not the Green Lantern one.

Kyle Rayner (75th) 169
John Stewart (75th) 151
Guy Gardner (75th) 110
G’Nort (Green Lantern Corp.) 70
=500 points and 2 re-rolls.

In the first round I was up agaist Phil. He was using a non themed Avenagers team.

Thor (Rook Supernova) 112
Captain America (Rook Armour Wars) 72
Wasp (Rook Infinity Challage) 24
Iron Man (Rook Armour Wars) 89
Ant-Man (Rook Supernova) 48
Hulk (Rook Universe) 103
Hawkeye (Rook Fantastic Forces) 61
=509 points and no re-rolls.

His team technicly was not a "Theme Team" as Wasp does not have the Avenagers keyword. But Darren let it go. Also doing the maths later his team was 509 and not 499 like he said it was. The extra points never helped him as sadly with their attack value of mainly nine and defence values of mainly sixteen, Phil did not stand a chance. He infact gave up half way into the game. On the second round, I was up agaist Adam. He was using a JSA themed team.

Jakeem Thunder (Origin) 129
Liberty Belle (Crisis) 84
Wildcat (Rook Origin) 54
Dr. Mid-Nite (Exp Collateral Damage) 43
Stargirl (Vet Legacy) 63
Sandman (Origin) 59
Mr. Terrific (75th) 59 491
=491 points and three re-rolls.

My dice rolls suck in this game and the shard nineteen defence does not help. I ended up losting this game sadly. I ended up getting the Bye on the third round. After the third round Phil decided to call it quits. As he took a bye in the second round, this meant some people who already played ageist each other might have to play ageist each other again. Darren put Adam and Adrian up ageist each of meaning that I was up agaist Darren in the four and final round. He was using a SS themed team.

Bronze Tiger (Justice League) 60
Red Arrow (Crisis) 73
Atom Smasher (DC Giants) 97
Count Vertigo (Arkham Asylum) 74
Nightshade (Arkham Asylum) 50
Multiplex (Arkham Asylum) 30
Multiplex (Arkham Asylum) 30
Deadshot (75th) 89 503
=503 points and four re-rolls.

Both Deadshot and Nightshade were quite nasty. I manage to take down a lot more of Darren's figures than Adam's but he still beat me. For any one who wants to know Adrain was using a Teen Titen themed team.

Robin (Vet Icon) 65
Roy Happer (Crisis) 53
Nightwing (Crisis) 79
Tempest (Crisis) 116
Raven (Vet Icon) 73
Boy Wonder (Crisis) 40
Wally West (Crisis) 72
=498 points and three re-rolls.

Again I did not do too well. Hopeful next week I will do better. Well talking about next week, we will be doing the last week of the Campaign. The games will be round 35 will 400 points, round 36 will 300 points, round 37 will 500 points, round 38 if it happens will 500 points and round 39 if it happens will 500 points. The will be no Luce this week

This week it was reviled that there will ten figures in the Green Lantern single boosters: the six from the Fast Force set (still do not know if they will have the same dials) as well as four others. They will be a single figure booster of Superman too that will come out September time. Also it has been reviled that an office online Heroclix game is being worked on and it will be a PC game that will debut in the late spring or early summer. The computer game is being created by the North Carolina-based Icarus Studios LLC, developers of the Fallen Earth MMO. This is all that has been reviled of the computer version of the game. Will the figures be free or do you need to buy them, will the game be free or will it be a one of charge or a monthly charge. We will have to wait and see sadly. This week's perviews for Giant-Size X-Men were the Mindless One generic from Next Wave and the Reavers members Pretty Boy Skullbuster and Bone Breaker. With 100 points, Mystic TA, Indomitable, Psychic Blast, Impervious, attack 10, damage 3 and Range 8, the Mindless Ones could be very useful and nasty. They would be useful place holders for the big minons for Mole Man too due to the monster keyword. The Reaver members look good too, maybe a cross universe cyborg team with Cyborg Superman.

This week's DreamClix I am doing a special for ShounenClix talking about the set and starter I designed for fun and about the next set and action pack that I will be doing next. Also for ShounenClix I will be doing two dial desgins, the generic Leaf Village Ninja from Naruto and Rukia Kuchiki Soul Reaper version from Bleach. For MAClix I will be doing the dial designs for Ho Yinan in the Iron Man Dio armour and the Iron Man Sigma drones from the Iron Man anime and for MechaClix due to the length of time the ShounenClix is taking I will not be doing anything for it this week apart from the missing two Wonder Bits I forgot to do last week.

Over all time time I have manage to do ideas for a full set and starter. For the starter I wanted a cross manga verses pack. I picked Naruto and Bleach to be in the pack. Most Heroclix starter sets and box sets have seven figures. I wanted to make it 50/50 with the Manga characters and on good guys and bad guys. However with an odd number of figures I decided to make them one a duo figure to help blance the numbers. I ended up with this.

Naruto Uzumaki
Sasuke Uchiha
Demon Brothers - duo figure
Ichigo Kurosaki - Soul Reaper AE
Rukia Kuchiki - depowered
Acidwire - aka Sora Inoue
Shrieker

Yes, I have done dial designs for all of them. The only problem figure here is Ichigo Kurosaki as the box set does not come with the other half of the AE, but as this is the end resealt than the weaker human version. Also the idea of adding two to six Naruto Shadow Clone pogs to the set would help too.

With the main set, I focus on doing character in cronical order to the Manga as well as I can, this lead to the the "Beginnings" for this first set. There was a heavy focus of Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Dragon Ball (not Dragon Ball Z), and some Death Note stuff too. I desgined the set with 60 standard figures, one brick figure, four chase figure and five LE's in mind. With the brick and chase figures, I wanted to make them special. With the brick figure I wanted to have a look in the futcher, by doing a later version of a character. For this set I did the adult version of Goku from the start of Dragon Ball Z. With the Chase figures, I wanted to do major background characters, characters that are not in the story as they have died but had a major inferlance to the other characters and/or the world. I did for this set, Minato Namikaze The Forth Hokage from Naruto as he help shape the show, Kaien Shiba from Bleach as he helped made Rukia the person she it and helped form the relationship bettwen Ichigo and Rukia (as Ichigo looks like him), Kuina from One Piece as she made Zoro the man he is and finally Bardock from Dragon Ball Z who was the father of Goku. If I run out of these types of characters, I will start doing Anime excusive characters instead. You might have noticed several pods (also known as Bystander Tokens). I know that they are technically no longer around, but they fit the idea of things like clones in Naruto to ignore. The idea I had for them is to have something like two to four of these pogs with their related character and then ever a random one with each booster or a set of each with each LE figure. The main focus of ShounenClix this on the Manga and not the Anime of each serge. OK as I have many see the Anime for most of these, I might by mistake base some of the stuff off aniome only stuff. Sorry if I do. However with characters like Bardock from Dragon Ball Z, I do user the anime to help fill out their powers.

With Naruto I decided to do thirteen characters in the main set as well as an LE.  This covered Team Seven aka Team Kakashi forming and the mission to protect the bridge builder. I decided to not do characters like Tazuna and Inari as they are not major combatants or major characters of the overall story line. If Bystander Tokens were still standard in the game, they would have fitted there quit well. With the LE I decided use the Leaf Village Ninja figure as Hayate Gekkō. OK this is a little bit of a jump ahead in the line time, but I was putting a list together for the next set and found I had one too many characters and I still needed to give a name to the LE in this set as I planned on using the Leaf Village Ninja, so I decided to make him the LE. Well any way for is a list of the Naruto stuff from the first set. Please note I have not done rarity.

Sakura Haruno
Kakashi Hatake
Leaf Village Ninja – generic
Iruka Umino
The Third Hokage
Ebisu + a pog
Haku
Momochi Zabuza + a pog
Thug– generic
Gatou
Kakashi’s Dog Squad
Rock Lee
Guy Might

With Bleach I decided to do thirteen characters in the main set as well as an LE again.  This covered all the events up to just before heading off to save Rukia. I decided to leave Urahara and his team until the next set and Yoruichi’s cat from until I do the human form. I am planning on doing Yoruichi a bit like the new Beast Boy and throwing a bit of nastiness into the cat form. With the LE I decided to use the human form of Ichigo as Kon as there was no good reason of doing Kon in his teddy bear lion form. Well any way for is a list of the Bleach stuff from the first set. Please note I have not done rarity.

Ichigo Kurosaki - human form AE
Rukia Kuchiki - soul reaper version
Hollow – ground type generic
Hollow – flying type generic
Menos Grande – generic
Grand Fisher - double base
Don Kanonji
Uryu Ishida
Byakuya Kuchiki
Renji Abarai
Orihime Inoue
Yasutora “Chad” Sado
Ichigo Kurosaki – Soul Reaper released sword

With One Piece I decided to do thirteen characters in the main set like with the other major mangas this set was following however there would be two LE.  This covered all the events up to the arc where Usopp joins the crew. I decided to not do characters like the Usopp Pirates as they are not major combatants or major characters of the overall story line. If Bystander Tokens were still standard in the game, they would have fitted there quit well. With the LE’s I decided to use the two generics and make less common generics. Well any way for is a list of the One Piece stuff from the first set. Please note I have not done rarity.

Money D. Fluffy
"Iron Mace" Alvida - pre-devil fruit
Zoro
Pirate – generic
Axe-Hand Morgan
Marine – generic
Nane
Buggy the Clown
Cabaji
Mohji and Richie – duo figure
Usopp
Jango
Captain Kuro

With Dragon Ball I decided to do thirteen characters in the main set like with the other major mangas this set was following however no LEs for them.  This covered all the events up to Goku going to Master Roshi to train. I decided to keep Oolong as one figure as he was not important enough to wasted several spots. Also I did Lauch before Kuririn as Kuririn would fit the next set better than Lauch. Well any way for is a list of the Dragon Ball stuff from the first set. Please note I have not done rarity.

Goku Son
Buluma - on bike transporter
Beast Man Warrior – generic
Master Roshi
Flying Nimbus - transporter
Oolong
Yamcha and Pu’ar – Duo figure
Great Ape
Chi-Chi
Ox King
Shu and Mia – duo figure
Emperor Pilaf
Lauch

With Death Note I decided to do only eight characters in the main set unlike the other mangas in this set, and also one LE.  This covered all the main characters at the beginning and several generics. I decided to slowly do the members of the Kira Investigation Team as it is hard to define them all in Clix form. With the LE I decided to use the Light Yagami to do a Kira figure. This is meant to be how the public saw the Kiras then just what Light or Misa or the other Kiras are like. Well any way for is a list of the Death Note stuff from the first set. Please note I have not done rarity.

Light Yagami
Ryuk
L
Soichiro Yagami
Police Officer – generic
Watari
FBI Agent – generic
Touta Matsuda

Well now for the next set. I will continal going down the time line idea and I will be adding one more manga to the list Soul Eater. I was origanally planning on adding Fairy Tail, however I decided as I write this adding more than one manga per set would over flood the sets too quickly. For this set onwards the main focus will be on three mangas with the other Mangas getting only sevel characters. This set will focus on Naruto durring the Chunnin Exams, Dragon Ball durring Gouk's training and the Tounemant and finally Soul Eater. The rough idea for a name for this set I have is Exams and Tounemants. Due to the fact that a lot of characters are add in the Chunnin Exams, I have decided to do an action pack with the Genin members of squad eight and ten. This has left room to go up to at less the 2.5 exams with Naruto. Some of the noteable characters that with be in this set are Sasuka from Naruto with his Sharingan Eyes, Orochimaru, Naruto after the three year gap (known as Naruto Part 2 in the manga or Naruto: Shippuden in the anime, I will be calling it by the anime name), the main students from Soul Eater, Kuririn and Jackie Chun from Dragon Ball, Kisuke Urahara from Bleach and Sanji from One Piece.

I will not be starting on the new set and action pack until April to have a bit of a break. However I will be doing two dial desgins a week and ever one or two cards (Feats, ATAs, Battlefield Condesions and Special Objects) a week too.

On a quick keyword change, the Anti Kira Task Force or Kira Task Force as I have written it at times should be Kira Investigation Team, my mistake.

Here are the dial desgined for the generic Konohagakure Ninja from Naruto, Rukia Kuchiki Soul Reaper version from Bleach and Iron Man Dio and the Iron Man Sigma drones from the Iron Man Anime.


Lastly we have the two Wonder Bits I forgot to do last week. Please note I am not doing Wonder Bit when I am doing Chaos characters.
Beam Bit - Wonder Bit – Prerequisite: Must have ever the Air or Support keyword - This figure gains a +1 to their attack value when attacking figure with the standard boot or transporter boot symbol.
Repair Bit - Wonder Bit - Prerequisite: Must have the Support keyword - Heal all adjacent friendly characters one click of damage.

Next time in DreamClix I am planning on doing for ShounenClix, I will be doing dial designs for the Marine generic from One Piece and L from Death Note. For MAClix I will be doing the dial designs Zodiac Warrior Sagittarius and the generic Armoured Soldier from the Iron Man anime and for MechaClix I am planning on doing Manimo, K-Ogre and maybe Destructor Girl from Cosmic Break. If I have the time I will try to do some more IS: Infinite Stratos characters for MechaClix if I have the time. Also if I have time I will be doing a special post that will reshow all the dial desgins I have done so far and errarters. Until next time, have fun.

CosmicBreak News Update, the 24th of February

Well, it is that time of the week for an update for Cosmic Break. This week’s update there is a bunch of new stuff in the in game store. First of is the new Garapon called Lop-Gara 1. This contains Renny Lop, the youngest of the Lop Sisters as well as many other robots. Two of the new robots feature a new type of Wonder Bit called an AURA System. When activated, the AURA System will cause certain parts on these robots to transform, giving them various special abilities and changes their states. AURA compatible parts may be mixed and matched on other robots like normal parts, but they will only be able to transform when they are equipped to a robot with an AURA System. You can pick up a limited edition blond haired version of Renny Lop in the store for 299 Rt until next week's maintenance. However the store one is has on slot for tuning and the part are undetectable. Sadly they have decided to split the Lop Sisters up into two separate updates, so Renny's elder sister Patty will be coming next week instead of this week. I am not planning on getting Renny Lop, as she is a Land type and I not fond of the look. I might get Patty if she is any good. I am not a fan of Land and Air robot and I believe that there are far too many Land robots and not enough Artillery robots. Well let me back to the news update. 
There are also new robots have been added to the Store. Blazed Baron 120 Rt 60 Rt (50% OFF) and Greinaut 100 Rt 50 Rt (50% OFF). Cosmo Regret Tickets have been added to the Star Coin Prize List. These tickets allow you to undo successful Tune Ups at the Cosmos Pot Reset, which has been added to the Ground Area. The ALPHA Ticket will undo one Tune Up; The OMEGA Ticket will undo one Tune Up, as well as allow you to recover the materials you used to make that Tune Up (Slot Protectors and Harmonics, however, will not be recovered). Finally we get to the bug fixes and other changes

The following bugs have been fixed:

   - Missing Ranking Counter NPCs have been returned to the BRD and DOS Union Areas.
   - Level 5 Rooms have been removed from Auto Matching (so that players with robots over level 5 cannot enter).
   - Bug in which several dialogue boxes in the tutorial were not displayed properly has been fixed.

Other changes:

   - The Union Wars Battle Campaign is now over. Results will be tallied, and prizes will be sent out to all eligible players in the near future.
   - Quest Mode has been returned to Channel 1.
   - Auto-kick time for AFK players has been reduced from 90 seconds to 60 seconds.

Until till next time, have fun.

Neoscream's Life, the 14th to the 20th of February

Movie Mark 2 Armour

Well another week of is now over and done with and it is time to write it up. Last week I joined a gym and sadly I did not do that many hours at work, but what does is week's post have hold for me.

Blaire was on line Monday morning. She was cleariong up after Buddie's birthday party and seemed a little drunk too, well she was drinking on cam. I worked from 11AM to about 5:15PM. When I got home I restarted playing Pokemon Platinum due to the "Let's Play Pokemon Black". From what I seen of Pokemon Black and White I am not liking in much, but than again I felt like that with the other version at first. However Black and White seems more like a reboot, as it does not have any of the previous genarations Pokemon in the main game. You have to beat the Elite four and the Champion to gain access to the other generation's Pokemon or trade for them. While that was about it for the day.

I got up at 2AM again, but for about two hours on Tuesday morning for the Chaos Invasion Event. Sadly there was a slow start and it was a nightmare to get into one of the special Arena Match. By the look of things they only had two GMs this week instead of three of last week. I did six matches before going back to bed. I was awoken several hours later when Blaire come on-line. She had received thwe stoockings I sent her and she wanted to show them off. She was wearing a lovey red dressing gown with a dragon patten on the back. Later on in the day I went to the gym for an hour. My lower leg muscals were cramping up. Then went home to have a bath. Afterward I posted last weeks Neoscream's Life post and played a bit of Pokemon. I manage to finish the first Gym. Sady I do not get around to playing any Cosmic Break in to evering before going to bed.

Blaire Drinking on Monday
On Wenseday morning I posted the next Unit post on my MS Wars blog before going to work. I should have done it on Monday but forgot. I worked from 12PM to 4PM. As my dad was off work and my mum was in work till later than normal today, I decided to go to the gym again. When I got home after the gym I played a bit more Pokemon before going to bed. Finally done the second gym.

On Thursday morning I posted the news on the latest update for Cosmic Break before heading to work. I worked from 11AM to 2:45PM. When I got home played a little Pokemon before dinner and going to Heroclix. Sadly there was no Phil. He said before he would be coming but dropped out at the last moment.

Ralts
On Friday I worked from 11:30AM to 3:45PM. After work I decided to head to the gym to try to loss some weight. I should be weighing my self but I keep on forgetting. While catching a bus to the gym, I ended up getting a double decker and the driver said as people got on, "Welcome onboard the Dinosaur." Now was he taking the piss out of the age of the bus, the size of the bus or both. Well I did another hour at the gym and headed home. Sadly I disd not get around to post the Heroclix post. I got stuck playing Pokemon as I just learnt that Raltz, one of my favorate Pokemon is catchable in to main story of the game for Platinum.

When I woke up on Saturday morning I found I miss Blaire as my computer was on mute and I most of been too out of it did not hear my phone go off to say that there was a Twitter from her. Never mind. I posted the Heroclix post I did not get round to posting yesterday before heading to coffee. Both Darren H and Richard turned up about twenty minutes late. Oh I oddly got the Saturday off this week, so we look around the Italinan Food market that was runniung this week. Afterwards I headed home as the others were busy with parteners or databases. When I got home I did the third gym on Pokemon. Nothing else really happened to write about.

Blaire on Sunday
I was awoken in the morning on Sunday by Blaire. I was on cam in bed. Sadly she got sweeped up into group quite quickly and stayed there for a long time. When she got out of group she left. However she did say as she left she would be on Tuesday next time. Richard picked me up for role-play at about 11AM. It was the last session of the Starship Troopers game we are playing for now. Inn this week's game we had to attack a mind controlled bug owned city/millitry base. We nuke both power stations and a water procecing station and blow up their space port, habber, gas planet three out of four hospitals, rtheir mean deffences and two of their barrick. Next week there is no role-play but the week after we be playing a Palladium game that Peter will be running for about six session. Sadly I did not get round to do much when I got home from role-play.

Well that is another week over and done with. Here is a list of up and coming blog post and the planned (not set) dates for them:

Thrusday 24th February: Cosmic Brek News Update and Rules: Unit Abilities part 2 (MS Wars only)

On the RPG side I have designed the races and most of the classes, still get at least one class to do.  I have done three standard mechs so far.  With the mean game I have added a couple of new character cards to the database but over the next month I should be adding a ton of new units too, must of which do not have names yet.

Heroclix 17th of February, Rookies of all Types

Welcome to another Heroclix post. This week is a 400 points Rookie Rumble. All figures must be from the same universe, no feats and rookie rank figures only. There is no Luke this week as he is busy and we were meant to have Phil this week too but he phoned Darren moments before 7AM to say he can not come this week. Due to the number of players one play had to take a bye each round and we manage to squise five rounds in so that everybody faces everybody and got a bye.

For once in I long time I just need to build one team. I started my team with Red She-Hulk and then built it about the Brute keyword. My team ended up being:

Red She-Hulk (Web of Spider-Man) 139
She-Hulk (Supernova) 65
Hulk (Universe) 103
Molten Man (Web of Spider-Man) 82
=389 points and two re-rolls.

In the first round I was up agaist Adrian. He was using a non themed team.

Mandarin (Xplosion) 107
Psylocke (Armour Wars) 45
Black Panther (Universe) 27
Scarlet Witch (Fantastic Forces) 35
Calypso (Clobberin Time) 29
Silver Suffer (Super Nova) 121
Mystique (Universe) 34
=398 points and no re-rolls.

Calypso
He had too much Preplex, Outwit and Probability Control in his team to deal with. My whole team was OKed and I only managed to OK his Black Panther. So I ended up lossing. The next round I got the bye so that was a automatic won for me. Due the bye I popped out to get a drink. The third round I was up agaist Michael. He was using a Teen themed team.

Phantom Girl (Legion of Super Heroes) 40
Batman (AA) 64
Klarion (Crisis) 76
Young Superman (Legion of Super Heroes) 100
Element Lad (AA) 70
Robin (Crisis) 35
=385 points and three re-rolls.

I had problems hitting him and ended up lossing the round. My dice rolls really sucked. On the four round, I was up agaist Darren. He was using a non themed team which was unlike him. They were even a mix of good and bad guys.

Osiris (75th) 101
Bane (75th) 140

Both Bane and Osiris are beast. Osiris high attack and Hypersonic and Bane's Outwit that was a trait, ten attack and Batman Emernies TA. Darren white washed me, so I lost again. Before the next round Darren told my what I was doing wrong with Red She-Hulk. I should be pushing her more until she is on her four click. However I it wound not have work on the first round sadly. The final round of the night I was up agaist Adam.

This game was close one. It ended up being his Johnny Quick on his second click verses my Red She-Hulk on her last click. Luckly he missed my high defence, 19, as miss caluated his movement which left him in the open for a ranged attack that OKed him. With ths I won the game by the skin of my teeth. Sadly I did not do too well this week, only two wins which one was from a bye.

Next week's game will 500 points, no feats, must be themed and the theme must be non-generic. Phil should hopefully be around next week, Luke should be back, but sadly there will be not Adrian and Michael next week as they will most likly be busy due to the school holidays. I am thinking of doing a Green Larntarn team using the new 75th Ann? Green Larntarns I picked up.

This week it was reviled that there will be a Captain America single figure booster set like the Green Lantern, however it will be based on the comics than the movie with Bucky as Captain Americe instead of Steve Rogers. Also previews of the Sentinel Mark II and four more Nextwave members have been reviled, the former Avenger Monica Rambeau, the former New Mutant Tabitha Smith, the monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone and Aaron Stack aka Machine Man. All seem like very good figures and can be early use in other theme team. Tabitha Smith is a lot better than the waste of plastic REV set of her back in Xplosion/Universe and I Am so wanting Aaron Stack. The Sentinel Mark II looks great, but I am not sure if the dial and cost goes together. Several of the powers that most colosusals had, like the old Sentinels, had the new one does not have. Like the continolus pushing and the multi attack. On other Heroclix news, Game Trade Magazine reviled another duo figure from the Giant Size X-Men set, Cable and Dead Pool, the world’s second greatest team up.

This week's Dreamclix I am doing for ShounenClix the Chase figures, Bardock from Dragon Ball, Kuina from One Piece, maybe Minato Namikaze from Naruto, maybe Kaien Shiba from Bleach and the dial design for Ichigo Kurosaki human form version from Bleach. For MAClix I am doing the dials for Captain Nagato Sakurai in and out of the Ramon Zero armour from the Iron Man anime. And lastly for MechaClix, I am doing Mecha Jetter, Priestol Q and maybe Goblin from Cosmic Break.

First off is Bardock from Dragon Ball Z. Bardock is a low-class Saiyan warrior and the father of Raditz and Goku (Kakarot). His life before flashbacks is unknown, but he is shown to lead his own squad into battle, and they are very successful in accomplishing assignments. He is an adept fighter and a devoted Saiyan Army soldier under Frieza's Planet Trade Organization, until he realizes that Frieza plans the annihilation of the Saiyan race. Given to him by the last Kanassan warrior, was the ability to see into the future and it is through these visions that he sees the eventual Genocide of the Saiyans. He should have the Flight ability, Super-Strength, Indomitable, Invulnerability, Toughness, Leadership and Probability Control. Due to fact he was only in flashbacks and an animated special I would stay he should have six clicks of health, but he was a Saiyan and a strong warrior so hwe might be better off with eight clicks. He starting states should be something like Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 4 and Range 8 with one target. He should have the Dragon Ball TA and the keywords Past, PTU, Saiyan and Warrior.
