Nimrod HeroClix#2 Nimrod

Pros: Man this guy is a Beast! Playable at all three of his levels, Nimrod can function as a one man army or part of a team. The Sentinel keyword allows Nimrod to be played on a non-generic theme team. Rapid Reformation seems to show up in all the right places making him a hard one to take down. An 8 range and plenty of move and attack capabilities keep him extremely mobile. At full power, he can use his ASSAULT FROM THE FUTURE trait.

Granting him the Multiattack ability for potentially KO’ing a character in a single turn and  a double power action will most likely allow him to land the first hit. Did we mention the [5] natural damage with Pulse Wave?

Continued Below...



HeroClix DOFP dials Nimrod

Cons: As good as he is, Nimrod has his weaknesses. His FUTURE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MUTANT MENACE power keeps his powers from being countered, but it is only available on four of his eleven clix. He’s also susceptible to attacks that cause penetrating damage over most of his dial. Finally, he's a very pricey character to field, even with all that Impervious and Invincible.

Grade: B+

Your Comments:
Well, we knew in advance there were going to be a lot of repeats in this set. It is based upon a very specific story. These are the main characters in it. So this is more of a case of "buyer beware" of the product before you buy it.

Even so, they did give some new characters with
Senator Robert Kelly
Moria McTaggert
Franklin Richards

And as several have pointed out there are some good remakes of characters that have not been made in a while, like Avalanche.

Why are they reproducing miniatures that have like half dozen versions already, when there are still plenty of Marvel that have NO clix yet. I buy these and repaint them to play roleplay games, I want MORE guys not another wolverine.

Shaft.
Agreed on the Brotherhood. DPFP Nightcrawler is a good dial, but I have the LE from WatX which is also good and approx the same number of points, which makes this one a low priority.

Big surprise there?!? Wolverine making the number 1 spot

How on Earth is Moira not on this list? She should be at 5, not Franklin.

I manged to skip this set granted I want Nimrod because he's a sentinel and who doesn't like them. Ok, well other then mutants.. lol

I hear you SF. There have been a lot of X-set recently. I recommend you pick up the Nightcrawler, avalanche, destiny and Angel. They are all ones that needed an upgrade.

Passed on this whole set for now. Store I was playing at closed. New store has had trouble getting product in in general except for GotG Movie stuff. Maybe the cut off for odering this was too far back. They only got 1 brick of Deadpool.

As for the actual content of the set, I feel we've done the X-Men to death at this point and blind grabbing for a handful of pieces to me means buying the few I want on the 2ndary market.

Eventually I might pick up Angel and the Brotherhood, but I'm just not interested in yet another version of Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, etc no matter how good it is.

I loved this set! I agree with all of your ratings except Destiny. She's Worthy of an A- at least, played reasonably well, her lack of defence should never come into it as you won't be placing her anywhere near the front lines as most of her coolness requires no line of fire.

Storm (classic costume) was the only complete F- of the set, the others are all pretty decent IMO.

My other pick for the top 5 would be Pyro. He's not devestating but his powers are perfectly represented which gets a B+ at least from me. I'd probably lose Franklin for him. Not that there's anything wrong with Richards junior but given his sculpt I just can't see me using him outside of a DOFP team. Pyro has more lasting value.

I'm in love with that Nightcrawler though, I may want to have his little plastic babies!
