REVIEWED BY CRAMCOMPANY

 

Today we'll be reviewing Forge from Sinister

 

He has the mutant power to build ANYTHING.  Thus officially having the most vague mutant power ever..

 

 

Unique:  84 points, X-Men Team

 

 

MOVEMENT:  A single click of Running Shot and then Force Blast.  The Running Shot is good.

 

ATTACK:  9 then 8… then back up to nine in the middle.  Energy Explosion, Incapacitate and Smoke Cloud.  Yep, that’s officially ever attack power I never use.

 

DEFENSE:  16 with nothing.  That is awful.  Toughness in the middle where it is not that useful and Willpower at the end just where I do not want it.  I want to flip his defense. 

 

DAMAGE:  3 damage and Outwit, finally a bright spot.  Perplex and then Support is pretty darn good, but the new Support is not as good.  Leadership at the end of his dial…. that’s not very useful.

 

SCULPT:  He’s pretty sweet.

 

OVERALL: 

*       Running shot on his opening click is nice

*       Outwit on the opening click is always great

*       The Perplex is going to wasted on his own attack

*       Support was good in the last 15 sets, but not any more

*       His 6th and 7th Click is almost better then his last

*       He is WAY to easy to hit.ealHeal

Wow, this entire set is just REALLY disappointing so far.  I love Forge, but he is just not playable.  Anybody with opening click of Outwit automatically earns 2 stars, but he’s put together so poorly that he can not warrant anymore then just 2 stars.

 

HE RECEIVES 2 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5 THUMBS UP!

 

So Far the worst set ever.  STILTMAN BETTER BE A GOD!

 

Good, Bad, I’m the Guy with the Clix

Hi everyone! Sorry that I missed the last reviews but I couldn’t have access

to the figs. to review till today :S Anyway, onto what we all want: Forge.
He’s a pretty well known X Man whose power is to be able to create anything
he can imagine… or something like that. This guy has 7 clicks of health, X
Man TA, 8 range 1 target, he’s a Unique and he costs 84 points.

Stats:

Speed: 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6, 5. Starts with a single click of Running Shot then
has Force Blast for his 4th, 5th and 6th clicks.

Attack: 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 9, 8. Starts with 2 of Energy Explosion followed by 2

of Incapacitate and then 2 of Smoke Cloud. Last click empty

Defense: 16, 16, 15, 15, 14, 15, 16. Toughness on her 3rd, 4th and 5th,
Willpower the last 2 clicks.

Damage: 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2. Starts with Outwit, follows 2 of Perplex, then 2
of Support and finishes with 2 of Leadership.

Analysis: Well, I have to say it straight out, I don’t really like him
much. Is he bad? I don’t think so, but I don’t find him especially good,
either. About Speed/Range, an 8 with Running Shot and 8 distance is not half

bad… after comes nothing (well, ok, Force Blast MIGHT be useful… but you
shouldn’t really count on it). His attack is mostly 9 and 8… a little not
enough for my taste, especially considering that he has there 3 different
powers and yet none is quite good on him (Smoke Cloud is only useful with
Flashbang and for Stealth guys, Incapacitate at an 8 range is cool, but he’d

need 2 targets and Energy Explosion is hardly ever good). Defense-wise, I
don’t like that he gets the Toughness mid dial and doesn’t start with it.
That means that one good hit will leave him half dead. Willpower at the end
= good for running to the medic. Besides, I don’t like that instead of
getting a spike on the defense, it goes up at the end. Finally his damage:
Not bad at all, considering that he sports some nice abilities: Starting
Outwit is cool, Perplex is cool, Suppor can come in handy, especially with
his attack values there, and Leadership… well, I don’t think that it’s good
at the end (when, unless this guy took an big hit early, you’ll have not
that much figures… or not? I dunno)

Conclusion: Well, he could use a couple of feats, like the ever present
ICWO, Protected ( needs it for his lack of damage reducing powers at the
beginning), Nanobots would be nice on him… but unfortunately those drive his

cost up too much. He’s great for a X Men Theme… but other on that, I don’t
like him.

Ranking:

100 – 1/5 What have you been smoking???
200 – 1.75/5 Still nope.
300 – 2/5 Maybe…?
400+ – 2.5/5 Knock yourself out here

“YES FORCEBLAST! NOW I CAN WIN!”
