DreamClix 7, Fowler's Armed Escort

Welcome to the all new DreamClix 7. This is where I post ideas and rough dial designs of HeroClix figure based on random Manga, TV Shows and computer games. Also there is a  my 7TV team update (now once a week and tagged onto this post) and in the future I am also plan on doing some house rules and self made Special Effects, Extras and Guest Stars. Oh and update news of changes to the DreamClix Dial Designs Page. (In or after Christmas it will include DreadBall as well).

This week DreamClix ideas are Agent Fowler from Transformers: Prime; a duo figure of Kotetsu Hagane and Izumo Kamizuki from Naruto; Shiva from Final Fantasy IX; Kinuba from Battle Angel Alita; and Jaga from Thundercats.

First off is Agent Fowler from Transformers: Prime. Special Agent William "Bill" Fowler is the type of guy that Theodore Galloway wishes he could be. A former US Army Ranger, he's the tough-talking, robot-dissing designated liaison between the United States government and the Autobots, who's got the guts to face down the Decepticons himself. And he doesn't need any military escort! He can pilot his own damn helicopter! And his own damn jet plane! Fowler is leery about trusting the Autobots to handle the Decepticons by themselves and believes that Earth can handle its own mess, but for now, while he chews them out and slags them off, he's willing to let them have a chance. He should have Probability Control and a trait called "I can pilot my own DAMN jet!".
I can pilot my own DAMN jet!: If Agent Fowler is piloting a vehicle, the vehicle can use Leadership.
He should have about four clicks of health and combat values of Speed 5, Attack 9, Defense 16, Damage 1 and Range 4 with one target. He should not have a team ability and his keywords should be Autobots and Soldier. The next Transformers: Prime idea should be Cliffjumper.

Next is a duo figure of Kotetsu Hagane and Izumo Kamizuki from Naruto. Izumo and Kotetsu first appeared disguised, trying to convince those planning to take part in the Chūnin Exams not to bother. Team 7 recognised that they had cast a genjutsu on the area, prompting them to give up in light of the group's skill. Seemingly somewhat impressed, Kotetsu attempts to attack Sasuke Uchiha with a kick, which Sasuke reciprocates in kind only to be stopped by Rock Lee. As they retreat and undo the transformation, he agrees with Izumo that the candidates this year seemed very interesting. Later, they and other chūnin arrive as invigilators of the first exam. Then, they sat on the outside of the examiners watching them for obvious sign of cheating, telling anyone who was caught five times that they had failed the examination. At one period in time during the exam, he threw a kunai onto the paper of a candidate that had failed, frightening Naruto as it had flown right past him. They should have the duo symbol, Barrier, Incapacitate, a special called "Fouls Entrance", Outwit and Stealth.
Fouls Entrance: Kotetsu Hagane and Izumo Kamizuki can use Mind Control, but may only give the target Move actions.
They should have about six clicks of health and combat values of Speed 8, Attack 9, Defense 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. They should have the Ninja team ability and their keywords should be Leaf Village. The next Naruto idea should be Hidden Rain Ninja.

Next is Shiva from Final Fantasy IX and X. Shiva is a frequently recurring summoned monster who usually takes the shape of a blue-skinned woman with clothing of the same color. Her signature attack, Diamond Dust (sometimes called Gem Dust), deals Ice-elemental damage. Along with Ifrit and Bahamut, she is one of the only summons to appear in every main series game from Final Fantasy III through Final Fantasy XIII (although in Final Fantasy XII she appears as an airship instead of a summon). She also appears in every main series side-story and sequel that features summons, with the only exceptions being Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- and Final Fantasy XIV. Although enjoying regular appearances throughout the series, Shiva, like most of the popular summonable entities, has never been given any significant back story, being simply described as the "Ice Queen". She is, however, shown to have a lover named Shivar and a daughter named Shivan in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, although this is the only appearance that either of them have made in the entire series. In Final Fantasy XIII, Shiva is embodied in a pair of sisters called Nix and Stiria. Shiva has occasionally been shown as one of the more "friendly" summonable entities, only requiring being fought to gain her services in a few Final Fantasy games, and she usually does not display malicious intent when doing so. Shiva's basic physical characteristics are that of a willowy humanoid female with pale skin and long, blue hair so to invoke an image of ice and cold. This image is reinforced in later summon sequences by the addition of arctic winds, freezing temperatures and large ice crystal formations. Shiva invariably wears only enough clothing to retain her modesty, along with boots and other minor aesthetic pieces. She carries no weapon in most appearances, and implements her main Diamond Dust attack with arm gestures, a snap of the fingers, and/or force of will. Later games in the series allow Shiva to carry out physical attacks in the form of kicks and punches. She should have the giant symbol, Barrier, Incapacitate, Energy Shield, Shape Change, a Special called "Heavenly Strike" and a trait called "Summoned" (the same as Valefor's trait).
Heavenly Strike: Shiva can make range attacks as if she has "Three Targets". After making a range attack, all hit targets receive an action token.
She should have about eight clicks of health and combat values of Speed 9, Attack 10, Defense 19, Damage 3 and Range 6 with one target. She should have the Mystics team ability and her keywords should be Aeon, Mystical, Summon and Eidolon. The next Final Fantasy idea should be Ifrit.

Next is Kinuba from Battle Angel Alita. The unbeatable champion of the Coliseum who defeated his challengers sixty-three times. He is assassinated by Makaku, who forfeits his powerful body. He should have the Giant symbol, Sharp Shooter, Indomitable, Toughness, Psychic Blast and Blades. He should have about six clicks of health and combat values of Speed 6, Attack 10, Defense 17, Damage 3 and Range 2 with two targets. He should not have a team ability and his keywords should be Robot, Sports, Celebrity and Brute. The next Battle Angel Alita idea should be the Power Body version of Makaku.

Next is Jaga from Thundercats. Despite his responsibilities, he is a very relaxed individual. He has always been kind to Lion-O and speaks highly of him to his father. Jaga always encourages Lion-O to do things the way he thinks they should be done, and not worry about what his father and brother will think. He should have Hypersonic Speed, Leadership, Combat Reflexes, Outwit, Super Senses, Perplex and Probability Control. He should have about six clicks of health and combat values of Speed 10, Attack 10, Defense 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. He should have both the Thundercats and Mystical team abilities and his keywords should be Thunderian, Animal and Mystical. The next Thundercats idea should be Prince Lion-O.

Now for this week's Dial Designs which are a Cosplay card of Monkey of Steel; Shadow Hunter from CosmicBreak; a generic City Guardsman from Fairy Tail; the area map for Dragon Ball (sorry I try to do it next week as a bonus); and a pilot card for Kaname Ohgi from Code Geass.

Now for the DreamClix Dial Design Page updates. This week I added (or will be adding after this post, two more redo dial designs for One Piece, a feat from One Piece, two missing One Piece dials, one more Battle Angel Alita dial, added two missing Bleach dials, fix two Bleach dials and the five four dial designs from this post.

This post's 7TV Team is my 200 ratings Kung Fu Detective School. With this upgrade I added two more Ninja (one being the civilian figure I use in the photos for the 150 rating team) and one more Civilian Medic. Again ones of the Civilians will be used as something else next ratings upgrade. Here are the picture of the 200 points team and group shots of the Extras:

The Team
The Ninjas
The Medics

Lastly some house rules for a new Heroes only Extra: Armed Police. If you read my Neoscream's Life posts, you would have see we use Soldiers with the Body Armour special effect instead of the Military Training one. I have decided to alt the idea a bit. Instead of altering the Soldier, I will alter the Riot Police. Replace the Truncheon with Rifle. Remove Shield upgrade. Add a new upgrade "Upgrade to Police Sniper (1 per full 10 Armoured Police) - gain the Concealment and Eagle Eye special effects (+10 rating)". New rating cost of 12/0. One other thing I was thinking about giving the is a rubber bullet round upgrade the ups the rifles Strength, but give it the Stun special effect for no extra cost. Might need testing.

Well that is it for now so until next time, Mecha up.
