So Long and Thanks for All the Fish – Dolphins to join HeroClix.
October 4, 2012

There was a time when my son and I thought there should be animals in HeroClix.  In the set called “DC75″ Beast Boy of the Teen Titans, Doom Patrol and currently being featured on Young Justice, was given 4 forms.  Person, bear, cheetah and T-Rex.

This week WizKids announced that they would revisit the character with 2 new versions.  This time we are getting dolphins and ptyranodons.

Check out WizKids write-up of the various Beast Boy pieces here.

While they share the same cool mechanic with the other 4, being able to switch between the various versions, other HeroClix players are making other plans.  300 point armies of the 5 animal forms.  Armies of dolphins to work with Aquaman and Mera – or Lobo!

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.

    See I don’t get that….HOW can one have an army of the 5 animals when there is only ONE Changling? That whole Heroclix game is for NON comic book fans.

      What can I say to that? There have been multiple versions of the same character available since the game started in 2002. Most people do not generally use them in the same game, but it is perfectly legal.

      For NON comic book fans? This I have to disagree with. Only comic book fans would be willing to spend money on blind boxed items which could include anyone from Batman and Spider-man to multiple versions of virtually unheard of characters like Magog and the Black Knight. I know without the comic background I would not be playing and collecting this game.

    Well if one is using 5 Firelords or 5 Silver Surfers in their game they CEASE to be comic book fans that respect the material and instead become asshats that just want to win the game.
