The announcement of the Jonah Hex Battle Pack got us drooling with ideas. After all, this is fairly new to the Heroclix universe.
As far as clear-boxes are concerned, Wizkids has traditionally given us new Boxed sets with seven figures or a new starter set -- the Jonah Hex pack is the first time we've been given just 3 new figures in a clear non-blind container.
Think about the possibilities here! Well, we certainly have, and we're going to tell you about it!.
Similar to our 22 Boxed Sets article, we present 10 Battle Packs that HeroClix World wants (in no particular order).
We first got a taste of the Cuckoos in the Marvel Mutations and Monsters set, and we fell in love with them. For 40 points you got a very nice tie-up figure that worked great in swarms. Could these be the first special powers that makes the figure work best in groups? I think so, Brain. Just take a look at the Cuckoo's special powers:
COORDINATION: Cuckoo can use Mind Control. When Cuckoo is given a move action, she can carry up to two other adjacent Cuckoos.
HIVE MIND: When Cuckoo is given an action, you can modify one of her combat values (including range) by +1 until the end of the round for each other Cuckoo adjacent to her.
Best of all, they're common. Now imagine being able to buy 3 of them in a single Battle Pack! There's no need for new dials or sculpts -- just give me the reprints. Heck, I'd buy a dozen just to play a "Stepford Children" team! (Ooo.. I just creeped myself out a little)
2. S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents
We've gotten some awesome Agents in the past, but we can always use more. I'd love to get 3 different versions here (with the same sculpt) and give it the same battlefield promotion mechanic that the Brave and the Bold Checkmate Agents got. Wizkids treated us with a reprint of Nick Fury in the Iron Man Battle Pack, how about some new S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to go with him?
Remember that the S.H.I.E.L.D.Team Ability only works on friendly characters also using the same TA, but this shouldn't be a problem for team builders out there. Wizkids, please don't stick a unique in here -- we want to buy multiples of this pack!
(edit: Whoops. Shield can be used on any friendly figure, even those that do not have that TA.Special thanks to beardedtoyman for pointing this out!)
