 X-Plosion Spider-Man

So I did the wrong review the other day...so sue me.
I blame WizKids, really I do...they're the ones who have to have...let's see...4 Spideys from IC, 1 from CT, 1 from XP and 3 from CM, that's a total of 9 different Spidey figures. (10 if you count the promo, which I don't). YIKES, that's an awful lot for one guy, even if it is Peter-Parker.

So if you check out the official WizKids figure gallery entry for this click you get what's probably the LONGEST explanation for a figure that they've written.
is where it's at. If you like this sort of thing, this explanation is fantastic, because it gives some great insight as to how WK designs figures. They wanted this Unique to be a more representational Spider-man, one using his webs as a shield.
Personally I have no problem with that whatsoever, this Unique beats the "Man-Spider" unique from Clobberin' Time any day of the week, and the sculpt is way cooler than the IC Unique as well. The only way this figure is diminished is that they issued yet another Spider-man REV in Critical Mass.

Lets get the particulars out of the way, 93 points, 9 clicks of health, 1 range 4 attack. Starting stats of 8 Speed, 10 Attack, 17 Defense and 2 Damage. I gotta come up with an abbreviation for that...hereafter all reviews of mine will look like this. SSADD is 8/10/17/2, which is basically what I just wrote.

Powers are Leap/Climb for all but one click, when you get Flurry, Super Strength & Incapacitate, Defend & Super-Senses, and Outwit for the last two clicks only.
I say this, too expensive for what you get. He's too well rounded to be any force for clobbering. Not that I'm enamored of any of the Spider-Man clix so far, I think they're all pretty weak.

But, boy does he have a great sculpt. There's three different Unique Spider-man Clix available, the black costume IC, the "man-spider" CT and this one. I think that pretty much kills the collectability of any particular one, this one can be found for between $6.50 and $21.00. It gets slightly better ratings because it's the newest one available.

My Ratings:
Playability 3 of 5
Collectability 3.5 of 5

Spider-man (explosion)

History: Another heavy brand. Everyone knows the regular Amazing Spider-man (Peter Parker) who does whatever a spider can right? Right. This version of Spider-man represents him using his webbing to create a shield (used many a times in the comics.)

Clix: I have always fealt that Spidey was dealt great injustice in everyone of his clix forms, this version being no exception. Spider-man should have Perplex or Outwit, what with all his random babblings and jokes all the while fighting crime. Sadly, this one doesn't but it does have some pretty mean powers under its belt. Spider-mans starting stats are 8 speed Leap climb (good mobility) 10 attack with super strength (A really good combo with Leap climb, will explain in a second) 17 defense with Defend (AWESOME!) and 2 base clean damage. All that comes with 4 range 1 shot (yuck), Unifiliated (Yuck) and 79 points (pretty decent actually). Well what we have here is a first click wonder, don't push Spidey, you will deeply regret it. His last four clix have outwit, after you see the black damage it would be a good idea to run to a medic. His last click has flurry... don't even try to use it. After 2 clix spidey loses his combo power (again be patient I will tell you) to gain the sub par power Incappacitate at the same time gaining Super Senses which is useful, but not as much as Defend. Anyways the combo I mentioned earlier (I know I know your gunna just have to reread everything now) that involves Super Strength and Leap Climb is a way of getting one of those pesky stealthed characters parked on an object "un-stealthed" Read directions as follow: 1) Anonouce (sp?) that Spider-man is making a move action. 2) Have Spidey use Leap Climb to walk right up to stealthed character 3) Use Super Strength to strip that character of there object, and use the rest of your move points as you wish. As you can see this can lead to tactical advantages sometimes, but if your jsut gunna do that than don't use Spidey. Spidey's best click (first) has the awesome power of Defend with 17 defense, so just park all of your guys behind him and (its the best with HSS) zoom out from the shield to attack if needed. Spider-Mans Outwit probably shoulnd only be used as a "HEAL ME" sign and shouldn't make you put him in the frey even more (the whole death thing.) Spider-man in Xplosion sealed, is the BEST figure you can ever hope to pull. With a massicve 17 defense you can make it so your not so g reat other pulls cannot be touched, all the while spidey is cleaning house.

Sculpt: Looks like he just avoided a deadly shot from the Green Goblin his pose is SWEET! His paint job is completely normal and not at all special, but hey is that really a bad thing?


Sealed: 5/5 (no matter what the points)

Constructed: 3/5 (Great for fun play and beginners)

Sculpt: 4.5/5
JetSetNeo  Quick review on Spidey from X-plosion

Link: http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/

Spidey w/out spidey TA is crazy =/.
He gets quite a few awesome powers:
L/C,Flurry,SS,Incipacitate,Defend,SSenses, and Outwit.
His stats range on average to above average.
Best placed in a Sealed team =/

Verdict: Has its fine points, but I just expect better for Spidey =/
100: 2.5/5 at 79 he is a bargain
200: 3/5
300: 3/5 Any other spidey could do better here
300+: 3/5 Still not so great
Sealed/Draft: 4/5 He fits any team and has the package to back it up in.
Scuplt: 5/5 Arguably his best point ^_^


Without Victory, there is no survival...
