Point Value  66
Collector's Number  021

Average Rating: 2.5

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating

Rookie Wildchild – 40 points
Experienced Wildheart – 50 points
Veteran Wildheart – 66 points

Moveability - All three versions have almost identical move capabilities. All three start with a Speed of 9 with Stealth followed by Charge with a Speed of 8 (1 click for the Rookie, 2 for the Experienced and Veteran) and then followed by several more clicks of Stealth. Stealth is handy to start with, but it’s difficult to get this figure set to use Charge when needed.

Attackability – All three have no Range and an Attack value that goes up and then back down. The Rookie starts at 7 goes up to 9 on the third click and then back down to 7. The Experienced and Veteran both start at 8 and then up to 10 before going down to 7. The only difference the Veteran has is that it has 2 clicks with an Attack of 10 instead of 1. With the weak Attack to start you should have no quarrels Pushing Wildchild, especially if you want to get to that Charge click.
Damage – While the Attack goes up and then back down the Damage starts at 2 for the Rookie and 3 for the Experienced and Veteran and drops from there. I don’t like this because the best Attack dial does not correlate with the best Damage dial so you either have a good chance of hitting and doing little damage, or missing an attack that would do more damage

Defendability – Wildchild has a good Defense starting at 16 for the Rookie and Experienced and 17 for the Veteran. All three start with Combat Reflexes, which isn’t bad, but really is only useful if Wildchild is in a fight he can’t win against a more expensive figure and needs to breakaway to flee. Without a ranged attack he has to be next to a figure to deal damage. A couple of clicks of Toughness in the middle is nice and the 2 clicks of Regeneration (1 for the Rookie) is very useful for Wildchild. This means he has a good chance of getting back onto his best Attack clicks and land some more hits.

Miscellaneous – The Rookie is not affiliated with any team, while the Experienced is a member of Avengers, and the Veteran a member of the X-Men. The X-Men team ability could be useful on this figure so you can manipulate his dial with other X-Men to get on the stats and powers you want. His sculpt is good, but nothing special.

Playability – Wildchild is definitely an interesting figure to use. I think the Rookie’s dial is just not filled out enough to make him effective. The Experienced and Veteran are better and can be useful, but it’s hard to get him onto Charge without leaving him open for ranged attacks. His 3 Damage never matches up with a click with Charge and a good Attack so he never seems to get the most out of his dial, but for the point cost he will make a decent support figure.

Overall Score: (Out of 5. Score of: 1 = horrible, 2 = below average, 3 = slightly above average, 4 = great, 5 = outstanding)

Rookie Wildchild – 1.75
Experienced Wildheart – 2.50
Veteran Wildheart – 2.50
