Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
|Unique SAMADAHL REY
Despite having a name that is almost impossible to spell, this guy is one
pretty powerful Clix. He's an alien Sigil bearer in the Crossgen universe.
he's one of only two flyers in the Indyclix set.
But he's expensive, at 164 points, you're going to have a very hard time
fitting him onto your team. You might just want to though, because basically
he's a one man army. Just look at his dial, it's all purtywith lots and lots
of colors, with one range 8 attack and the Crossgen team ability. Starting
stats of 10 Speed, 11 Attack, 15 Defense and 3 Damage are only slightly
better than average, BUT he has 9 clicks of Health, Force Blast, Plasticity,
Super Strenght, Telekinesis, Mind Control, Invulnerability, Toughness,
Impervious, Barrier, Outwit and Support. Yes, all that in one figure. Geeze
Louise, this guy MIGHT be able to take down Superman.
He's a unique, of course and that alone makes him collectable, but if you
spell his name right, there just aren't a lot of Ebay auctions out there for
him. Try just looking for "Rey Unique" and you'll find several ranging
from about $8 to $35. Well worth it, I think.
Playability 4 of 5
Collectability 4 of 5
Next time, more heavy hitter goodness. Can you say "Apokolips"? I knew you
I can honestly say I know little about Samandahl Rey when it comes to
comics. I know he bears the "Sigil" (where the Cross-Gen team ability comes
from), but that's about it. Heroclix-wise, though, I can tell you that Sammy
here's a beast with a very colorful dial. Starting off, he has a nice 8
range, an 11 attack (that steadily drops to a 5 on his last click), outwit
on his first two clicks, so he can blast through those defensive powers.
He's also one of the two flying pieces in this set, and the only figure with
support. He's scary in close combat, having super-strength (drop the
dumpster on them) and force blast (push them into a wall or off a building
and deal them indirect damage, a great way to counter the other player's
Cross-gen team). Later on in his dial, he's got plasticity, telekinesis, and
outwit (again!). Defense-wise, his values are pretty low, starting at a 15
and slowly dropping to a 12, but he starts in invulnerability, goes to
toughness, back to invuln, up to imperviousness for one click, and then his
final two clicks have barrier.
Sealed- 4/5 He's going to be a good portion of your force, but he's got a
lot of defensive powers to rely on, plus the Cross-gen team ability. He's
also a unique, and outwit murders things in sealed play
200 points- 2/5 At 164 points, he IS your team. He drops, you drop.
300 points- 3.5/5 A little expensive to be playing, but if you give him some
solid backup (Lobster Johnson, a Kabuki team member), you could do well
||What's up. Today's click is Samandahl
Rey,Unique, from CrossGen comics. Who, you ask? Why, he's the guy with the
thingamabob on his chest that gives him his powers, and boy does he have
powers! First of all, Sammy Rey is 164 points. That means he's expensive.
But believe me, he's worth it. His starting stats are speed of 10,attack of
11, defense of 15, and damage of 3, with Force Blast, Super Strength,
Invulnerability, and Outwit. Wow. So you could outwit, maybe, Impervious,
grab the closest item and smack someone for 5 damage. But that's not all,
you mothers! Ol' Sammy gets Plasticity, Telekinesis, Toughness, Barrier, Support(but
by then his attack is pretty low), one whole click of Impervious and what is
supposed to be Incapacitate, but Wizkids says it's Mind Control, along the
length of his 9 hp dial. Hold on, I forgot something! Sammy has the CrossGen
team ability (duh), he can fly, AND has a 8 square range attack!...Whew,
anyway, here's the score...
200:1/5- are you crazy?
300:3/5- better here.
300+: 5/5- Yes, use him here, fool!
History: Chest symbol? Superman clone? Bombarded by "magical" rays in space?
wait wait wait. All of this is sounding way too familiar. Anyways onto the
Samandahl Rey is one of the only figures in Indyclix that I have a liking
for, having a long Volumptious dial filled with nice surprises towards your
opponent. He is well worth his 164 points, and his first click shows us
this. Starting off with 10 Movement and Force Blast,11 Attack with Super
Strength, 15 Defense with Invulnerability(It is low for a reason, I will
explain) and 3 Damage with Outwit, already you can tell that This similiar
to Doc Samson sculpted figure is going to cause some serious problems for
your opponent. Sammy (for short) has the team ability Crossgen (which bears
a striking resembalence to Dc's Mystic team ability). Everytime Your
opponent hits Sam, there gunan get hit back. The only MAJOR changes in Sams
dial is on his last 4 clicks. on his fourth from last, Sam Gains 4 Damage
(Outwit) 13 defense (Invulnerability) 8 attack (Telekineses) and 8 speed
(Plasticity). 4 damage? 4 DAMAGE! wow he is a murder house at this point in
time. 1 click later Invulnerability turns into Impervious, a change for the
better, now that you have Sammy on his good clicks (unlike Hulk) he is going
to stay there. His last 2 clicks Consist of Support,Barrier, and Mind
Control. Now is the time Sammy should run back, Heal a medic, than get
healed by that very same medic, cheap but versatile strategy. The way to
play Sammy Rey is recklessly. Let your opponent smash him all they want,
they pay for the damage they deal to him.
Sculpt: Doc Samso... I mean Samandahl Rey has a regular looking sculpt, cool
chest symbol, everything smooth and nice, but nothing really outstanding.
Sealed: 5/5(3/5 on lower point games) I got whooped at my last sealed
tourney by this beast!
Constructed: 4.7/5 Make a team out of him
