Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
I'm not going to do my standard introduction to Blade, since if you haven't
seen either of the movies, SHAME ON YOU! Call yourself a comic book fan? The
first Blade film resurrected the career of Wesley Snipes, and also heralded
in the latest cycle of Comic Book film adaptations. And it wasn't a bad
flick either. Blade's mother was bitten by a vampire while he was in utereo,
making him a "Daywalker", neither a vampire nor human, a lethal combination
of the two.
Another oldie but goodie, the veteran Blade not only comes from Infinity
Challenge, but he's only 33 points! He gets only six clicks of health, which
is on the low side. He starts with 7 Speed, 9 Attack, 15
Defense and 2 Damage, but his powers include Stealth,
Blades/Claws/Fangs, Toughness and Battle Fury. Basically he's a cheap
beserker. The two damage is a non-starter, since you have BCF and can do one
die roll instead. At 33 points, I'd have him on just about any team, since a
good beserker is always a good thing.
The drawback to Vet Blade is that he's a level 3 Uncommon, meaning he's
available everywhere for cheap.
Playability 3 of 5
Collectability 2 of 5

||Whoa, Its a rare occasion when I review a
non-spidey based/oriented clix,
but this is one of those rare occasions. Mostly because Blade is the most
popular non-popular characters....wait a sec....
Reviewage: When IC came out Blade was pretty much left in the dust. Firelord
reigned supreme, Timmys and Johnies ate up X-Men and Spidey characters, and
those who got this guy in their booster kept him safe only because he was
(at one point) a very popular comic character (maybe so because of the 2
movies more so than the comics, but what do I know =/ ).
But for his (vet) version hes a decent back-up go to guy at least that was
the deal when IC was out. If you didn't stock up on Wolverines and
Sabertooths this guy was the best B/F/C you could get.
Speed at 7/Stealth is a bit slow, but stealth keeps him somewhat safe. 9
attack with B/F/C is the best part of this guy. 15 Def with toughness is
low, but for only 33 pts his okay. 2 damage is low but B/F/C makes up for
it. Battle Fury is both a pro and con. No Mind control, but can't be carried
Verdict: Was better in the old days, but nowadays he's left in the dust.
Sealed/Draft: 3/5 Most decent spot for him.
Sculpt: 5/5 Not bad, The pose is awesome, and those are some nice swords...I
|For 33 points Blade isn't all that bad. But
for 33 points, Blade isn't all
that good either! With only 2 clicks of Toughness, you can easily chip
with even a Rogue! A 9 attack is nice, but not quite enough. The Stealth is
only thing to save this figure. The Battle Fury is no longer much of an
since taxiing is not as good as it was, so I won't subtract points on that.
But he's still a mediocre piece. Here's the verdict:
100: 3/5 The only place where's he's needed
200: 2/5 You've got Wolverine here.
300: 1/5 No longer needed. Don't use him
Hey every one
this is my first review for Pojo's CotD and I am happy to be on the team
(people come to get autograph) any ways to days click is BLADE!!!
Now I have
never read the Blade comic books but I have seen both of his movies, and I
thought they were pretty good. Incase if you haven't read the comic books
or seen the movies (shame on you) Blade is a half vampire that protects
the mortals (humans) from the vampires. So pretty much all that he is is
a vampire slayer =) which the idea has come up in a lot of things since
*cough* castlevania *cough*. anyways now to the click.
First of all
I loved the Blade click when he first came out because he was my first
figure with B/C/F (ahh the good days). Anyways I think Blade is a
phenomenal character for the amount of points he costs!! for only 33
points you can have it all: stealth for 3 clicks, B/C/F for 4 clicks!!
toughness for 2 clicks, and last but not least battle fury for all six
clicks. now I dont think that battle fury is that good of a power and
that stealth and no range don't go good to gather but for only 33 points
he is very good. imagine a 300 point game with a army of these... anyways
out of my day dream you can use his stealth to get near your opponent but
I would rather fly =). there are two draw backs to Blade, The first is the
fact that he has toughness for only 2 clicks and nothing after that. They
could have at least given him regeneration because he is a half vampire...
the second thing that is wrong with him is the battle fury. In my opinion
battle fury isn't much of a challenge anymore, the days of Professor X is
over and he isn't coming back for all I know but i guess these draw backs
are not to bad because you have to balance him between his low cost and
his draw backs.. ohh well...
and now what
you have been waiting for... THE RATINGS!!!!
point-4.5/5 in this format his low cost will dominate not much more to say
he may of gone down a little but he still rocks
imagine a horde of small costing great characters...
with his low cost and his good status he is good in almost any format but
use him wisely
out people see you next CotD and thanks for letting me be a CotD you guys
