As many of you may know, the folks at Wizkids Games are going to show us an entirely new way to duel this December; some of the greatest Duel Monsters of all time are set to leap off the cards and onto your table, as collectible minis in Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One! But here’s something you might not know: I’ve actually been a huge, huge fan of HeroClix since the beginning. For me, this fantasy mashup of Yu-Gi-Oh! and HeroClix is like a dream come true. So when Wizkids approached us at CoreTCG to offer readers like you an exclusive preview? We jumped at the chance.
And when our preview turned out to be one of the coolest, most revered fan-favorites of all time?!? I’ll admit it! I gave a little fist pump. Here’s what they had to say about today’s big reveal – Breaker the Magical Warrior!
Greetings Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans!
Welcome to a special exclusive preview from the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One starter set release.
Due out in December 2013, the Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One starter allows fans to duel as they have never before – on the tabletop with HEROCLIX!
That’s not all! 55 more figures will release in February 2014! There is something for every Yu-Gi-Oh! fan to enjoy in the Series One HeroClix release.
Today we are pleased to present Breaker the Magical Warrior!
Breaker the Magical Warrior is an impressive melee combatant and his HeroClix combat dial represents that well. Breaker the Magical Warrior begins play able to bring the fight to his enemies thanks to Charge; he can move up to half his speed value and then make a close combat attack!
To add a little more pepper to Breaker the Magical Warrior’s close combat attacks, he also possesses Blades/Claws/Fangs, which allows him to substitute the result of rolling one die for his standard damage value. That means Breaker the Magical Warrior can do as much as 6 damage with a single attack!
Even better, Breaker the Magical Warrior also has Exploit Weakness, which means that damage from his close combat attack will bypass any damage reducing powers his target may possess! Talk about a potent combination of powers!
Mid-dial Breaker the Magical Warrior gives up Charge in favor of Flurry, which allows him to make two close combat attacks against one target or two different targets!
Late-dial Breaker the Magical Warrior regains both Charge and Exploit Weakness.
Initially, Breaker the Magical Warrior relies on Invulnerability to protect him from damage dealt (-2 to damage dealt to Breaker the Magical Warrior), and then to Toughness (-1 to damage dealt to Breaker the Magical Warrior) towards the end of his dial.
Breaker the Magical Warrior possesses the “Yugi Muoto”, Dark, and Mystical keywords, and at only 100 points he is an asset as both a primary or secondary attacker on your HeroClix team.
