Speed:  Full dial stealth…well at least you wont be wasting a turn moving to hindering thanks to JLA team

Attack:  Little above average for a 44 point piece

Defense:  Starts average, ends high.  Late dial she could really help a team.


Damage:  Junk numbers, good luck landing on the probability control

 
The Good:  Late dial defend w/ huge defense

      Full dial outwit

      Probability control helps

     

The Bad:  No real movement

                Could be tough to land on Prob Control

                Attack is nothing special


Feats:  I wouldn’t bother


Overall:  If it wasn’t for defend; this would be as bare-bones a character as you could expect.  Her attack use is very limited, and her real use comes from the probability control/defend.  I find she would work best in a bizarre world game, because that huge defense with the low attacks to start would help your pieces greatly.  She could be useful in a normal game…just won’t do anything special.  I don’t like the idea that a short life piece needs to take significant damage in order to be useful.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  2 / 5  (4.5 / 5 in bizarro world)

Sealed/Draft:  2.5 / 5

 

Overall:  2 / 5

 

“Heroclix….they’re cool, addictive, and available….the things practically sell themselves.”

CORRECTION: I realize there were some screw ups with the Icicle review, and when the errata comes out for the latest batch of pieces, he will more than likely get a re-review.  Sorry about the screw-ups.

Fan Requests! If you have one send it to any of the Reviewers. Today's fan request is Gypsy.

Gypsy:          Common
44 Points        Grounded
JLA Team        0 Range; 1 Bolt
 
# 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
7 7 6 6 5 5 KO KO KO KO KO KO
9 9 8 8 8 7 KO KO KO KO KO KO
17 17 16 17 18 19 KO KO KO KO KO KO
2 2 2 1 1 1 KO KO KO KO KO KO

 Speed  -- Stealth and no range is a downer. At least she can protect herself right?

 Attack  -- Sub-par here, too. Not much she's going to do with those awful numbers.

 Defense  -- Values are already great and since Gypsy will usually be in hindering terrain, her defense will go up by 1! She would be perfect in those stipulated "play the dial backwards" games. But in regular matches, will the Defend come in handy? And should you push her? I say let her get attacked onto those clicks.

 Damage  -- 2's and 1's. Probability Control should make up for it.

 Sculpt  -- No wonder she's the least-expensive figure in the set; she looks out of Hypertime.

~~ Definite support piece we have on our hands. I would slap on Ambush if there's leftover points; that way, she could have a chance of fending off enemies. Gypsy is a unique figure that really can't be good until she's about to die. I would use one just for fun. Maybe I'll land on that 19 Defend click. Try for yourself. ~~

Gypsy receives a 3.25/5.

Experienced Gypsy

boot speed

44 points

Team: Justice League

Keywords: Birds of Prey, Justice League of America, Justice League Task Force,

Range: 0 x 1

DIAL:

QUICK ANALYSIS:

One of the cheapest figs in the JL set, Gypsy starts as a great Super Senses tie-up fig, becomes a Probability Controller and ends with superb Defend ability -- all with a full dial of Stealth. Feat her with either AMBUSH or RUNNING START depending if you plan to have her fight or play pure support roles. The PHONE BOOTH Special Object can help her get to the click you want her on quickly, but don't waste her trying to get to that 19 Defend.

RATING: 4.5 of 5. Ban her from Bizarro games forever.
