Buckle up!

Hypersonic HeroClix Reviews: Star-LordSTAR-LORD
A short dial for 75 points but he packs a punch with 3 Damage Running Shot on his first click... but 75 points for 5 clicks is an expensive show pony. His biggest appeal is his Hadron Enforcer trait that let's him Pulse Wave from any clear terrain that is in his range and he has LoF to as a free action.

Strategy: Running shot for 3 Penetrating/Psychic Blast on turn 1; on turn 2 and taking a push, Perplex up his damage and take his free action Hadron Enforcer for an 11 attack and 4 damage to a single target.

Continued below...

HeroClix World Star-Lord Dial

His alternating ability to either give free actions to pushed-out figures (like a mini-Masters of Evil) or perplex up himself or his friends is also an added bonus. He's going to be hard to keep alive and should have had Sharpshooter, but the potential is there to deal 10 points of penetrating or unavoidable damage in two turns -- this makes him a surprisingly good secondary attacker that your opponent just can't ignore.

Your Comments:
@Superfriend: That you for the information. I actually stopped posting "delayed product" news a long time ago because HeroClix release dates are always delayed. ALWAYS.

If I posted info on HeroClix product delays, there would literally be a new posting every week.

Not sure where to put this, but the heroclix . com page says that the comic set of Guardians of the Galaxy 5 pack boosters may be delayed / allocated for stores in the Mid West by a few days and East Coast by as much as a week.

[Some Alliance Midwest stores may experience a 2-3 day delay in receiving their Marvel HeroClix: Guardians of the Galaxy booster brick orders. Stores that have release events scheduled Wednesday - Friday (13-15 August) should consider re-scheduling to accommodate this delay.
Some Alliance East stores may find their initial Marvel HeroClix: Guardians of the Galaxy booster brick orders allocated. PLEASE NOTE: the rest of your order will be shipped to you as soon as the next wave of product arrives at Alliance East. (which we expect to arrive a 7-10 days after initial release)]

I have this set on order and am looking forward to it. The FF sets I agree have been pretty solid so far and I like getting all my character must-owns in one go with no randomness.

Nice reviews overall so my thanks to the good doctor. I missed the A- / B+ scores though that we usually get for the hypersonic reviews.

Star Lord's Hadron Enforcer lets you use Pulse Wave. One tactic I saw used was place the hadron enforcer, use running shot to get away and then do the pulse wave.

Good catch guys, especially on the free action! This is totally an editing issue on my part.

The Guardians of the Galaxa ATA on page 6 used to be 5 points -- that image you are seeing came directly from the Wizkids site. I am unsure exactly when they reduced it to 4 points, but clearly I need to update the HeroClix World files.

Thanks again!

There are a lot of errors in this review. As pseudokinetic said, you can't PW as a free action. Additionally for Star-Lord you can't push and perplex up your damage on the second turn. You don't take the push until after you already have the second token.

Rocket and Ronan ignore all characters for targeting, not just opposing.

The GotG ATA that says their powers can't be countered costs 4 points, not 5. Additionally their other wildcard ATA is practically useless since you can only use it on themed teams now. You would have a team of no team abilities and all wildcards.

I disagree with some of the strategies involved, but that's just opinion I wanted to correct some of the actual mistakes.

but the hadron enforcer doesn't give the use of the pulsewave as a free action.. just the choosing of the square. you'd have to wait to clear in order to pulse
