WizKids Previews Raphael From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix Set
While it bounces back and forth between Marvel and DC on a very regular basis, it’s important to not forget that HeroClix is open to any IP that WizKids can get (I’m still saddened that the Hello Kitty set apparently never materialized, just because of how funny that would have been). Well, that includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The set is on its way and the first preview is up. It’s Raphael.
As one would expect, Raphael is an expert at close-combat fighting. His sais allow him quick attacks and lots of ability to maneuver around. This is represented by Flurry, dealing Penetrating Strike with his melee attacks, and being able to reposition himself around an enemy when he hits them. Of course, being a turtle, he has his half-shell, which gives him Toughness. He’s also been training a long time, which grants him Close Combat Expert. All of that for 50 points, meaning you can certainly fit him into many different team builds.
