Rurouni KJS Rookie Drax the Destroyer
wing speed
110 points
Team: none
Range: 8 x 1

Dial:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10533&unitid=11968&universeid=4

110 points get you a decent flying brick of a fig.
With Super Strength and 3 damage for over half his dial, he can deal it out. Running Shot at mid-dial helps him stay versatile after he runs out of objects, as do Psychic Blast and Exploit Weakness later. And ending with 17+Regeneration is a welcome surprise so he won't have to bother running to a medic, while that
4 damage is trouble for opponents low on their own defense.

FEATS?
HAYMAKER is an OK choice, especially to start with since his best AVs are on his 2nd and 3rd clicks. Even better on him than most characters is the infamous IN CONTACT WITH ORACLE.

THEMES/COMIC ACCURACY:
This being Drax in the start of his mission to kill Thanos, he's not the beast he'd later become. Team him with his daughter Moondragon for themey fun.

IN SUM:
Not too expensive, Drax is a great fig for tackling foes in his weight class and below. He can also take it to bigger targets. Not bad!

RATING: 3.5/5

=========================================
=========================================

Experienced Drax the Destroyer
wing speed
168 points
Team: none
Range: 8 x 1

Dial:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10534&unitid=11969&universeid=4

For 58 more points than the Rookie you get a Drax ready to rumble with a lot more Charge to complement his SStrength. Starting Impervious is also a major upgrade. In fact, one would be tempted to hold back and let him snipe from range until the time is right to Charge in. But his strength is close-fighting.

Mid-dial, his clicks of Toughness upgrade to Invulnerability as his Attack sags to a steady 8 and his damage to 2+Close Combat Expert. But it's his ending clicks that impress despite mediocre AVs: 16 &
17 Impervious and Flurry! It will be tough for opponents to get him off the board if he's deal his share of damage to the other side.

FEATS?
FORTITUDE wouldn't hurt at his point value to keep his damage reducers working. DAMAGE SHIELD works for most of his 10 clicks. And again IN CONTACT WITH ORACLE elevates Drax from good to great.

THEMES/COMIC ACCURACY:
I guess this is Drax the Destroyer at his arguable height of, y'know, destroying.

IN SUM:
A powerful but not overbearing fig, he's the best of the set. Just not quite tentpole-worthy.

RATING: 4/5
=========================================

Veteran Drax
boot speed
184 points
Team: none
Range: 0 x 1

Dial:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/marvel/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10532&unitid=11969&universeid=4

The first thing you notice about the Vet is his clipped wings -- no more flight! Then you note his lack of range and far less damage reduction. So what does he gain for only 16 points over the flying, shooting and tougher Exp.?
1) Better overall AV. He peaks lower but never drops below 8 and ends at a 10 like he starts. 2) Between Outwit, Exploit Weakness, Blades and a LOT of Super Strength, he packs the powers to deal his full damage to any standard clix on any click he lands upon. Pretty much any clix he ties up is going to be KO'd unless they can break away.

FEATS?
NANOBOTS is OK on his 2nd half. SUNDER is decent, too, as is UNSTOPPABLE. DAMAGE SHIELD isn't half-bad. But

THEMES/COMIC ACCURACY:
Drax ditched the cape (which remains on the Vet -- boooo!), quit flying and started packing big knives in Annihilation. Guess they worked, as he finally whacked Thanos as he was created to do.

IN SUM:
A close-combat beast, Drax sorely needs taxi or TK help to get to his target without taking fire. Less damage reducers might retard his ability to deal the damage he can against the figures in his weight class that he should be tangling with. Still...pretty much any clix he ties up is going off the board.

RATING: 3.5/5

Today's review is Drax the Destroyer from Supernova

 

Another deep space character, whoclix this guy

 

Since he has a range and a more damage reduction, I say the best is the experienced

 

He is 168 points, has 8 range 1 target, 10 clicks of life, a flier, and no team

Speed:  4 clicks of charge aint bad, but I would rather see some running shot

Attack:  Not bad, but falls a little lower than I would have liked

Defense:  Damage reduction the whole way through and good numbers make me happy, tough to heal though

Damage:  Decent numbers, not great, but the CCE can make it high

The Good:  10 long clicks with damage reduction

      8 range always helps

      Charge and Super Strength is always a good combination

The Bad:    Movement still isn’t great

     Almost impossible to heal


Feats:   ICWO, Shellhead, Protected, Haymaker, Large Object all work on this guy


Overall:   This guy is your basic flying brick.  Nothing great, nothing really bad about him either.  He is almost impossible to heal, but that late into a game, a 17 with impervious is almost unhittable.  I like this guy, but I might be more inclined to use more range friendly pieces at this point.  Not bad, not great, but solid.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  3 / 5

Sealed/Draft:  3.5 / 5

 

Overall:  3 / 5

Today's Click of the Day is Drax
Veteran from Supernova
 
The veteran Drax is the newest reincarnation from the Annihilation storyline. He grew smarter, and started using knives in battle. A guy who can destroy planets with one blow uses knives? And he's called "smarter" for this?
 
Drax is 184 points; Flier; No Team; 0 Range; 1 Bolt
18  1 8   18    7   6    6    6    8    7    7  1   KO
 10   10   10   9   9    8    8    8    9    9    10   KO
 17   16   16  15  17  16   15  15  14   14   13   KO
 4     3     3  1   2   2    2    2    2    2     2    KO
 
Note --  This color  = Combat Reflexes/Exploit Weakness
 
Speed looks colorful. Lots of Charge and some Flurry. The random Plasticity click can heavily affect strategies. Numbers shrink below moderate speed over time.
 
Attack is proficient. I see a couple good 10's but that is common sense for a 180+ Heroclix. That ending spike won't be very devastating.
 
Defense should be better. No Impervious? At least there's a long line of other damage reducers. Ending Regeneration can help.
 
Damage is below par just like the rest of Drax. Too many twos and only one 4. Hey, I'm just happy the 4 wasn't on his last click.
 
Sculpt -- "Image forthcoming". No idea if the veteran looks any different than his other levels.
 
Drax can be classified as that big kid in high school that thinks he's all cool but really no one likes him. He starts off okay but after that he never seems to pick up and get good again. I don't even recommend a try at him. No feats, no nothing; don't bother. Drax lacks.
 
Drax rates: 1/5
