~ The Countdown of 2007 continues! Here's a breakdown of the set-up:

- Each reviewer picked his opinionated Top Ten HeroClix of 2007.
- 1st Place on his list would receive ten points. 2nd would receive nine, and so forth until reaching 10th place with one point.
- Once all the lists were compiled, each figure's total points from all the reviewers was calculated.

And here we are. The Top Ten HeroClix of 2007! ~

Rurouni KJS #8 is MISTER MIRACLE, a character I reviewed last year in May. I scored the REV at 4.5, 4 and 3.5, respectively. Those reviews still stand (go ahead, read 'em...I'll wait!

http://www.pojo.com/heroclix/COTD/2007/may/8.shtml),

but I'd change both the Rookie's and the Vet's scores to 4. The R's AV hangs just a little bit too low to warrant the higher score. And despite the Vet's high cost, his sky-high average DV is a real game-changer.

I've seen too many games go his way because of it.

And yes, Mister Miracle would have made my list, too!

The Le (pronounced Tay Lee) Geez this man is a beast. 8 clicks of life and almost a full dial of color. 3 clicks of Incapacitate, flying, 5 clicks of phasing, 6 freakin’ clicks of outwit, and 2 clicks of probability control – wow!

Lets start with that movement -- he's got tons of it, and mostly with phasing/teleport. As a flyer, this makes him an excellent taxi. There's some Plasticity in the middle, which will be useful since he is basically a close combat brawler (because of the lack of range).

But that's okey, because he sports [3] damage for four clicks and [2] damage for another four. Since most of those slots have Outwit, this makes him incredibly dangerous, not to mention the two clicks of Probabilty Control in the middle.

Moving on the the Attack, his numbers look pretty good. It never goes below [8], but carries too much Smoke Cloud for my taste. There is, however, three nice clicks of Incapaciate in the middle, which might make him a good candidate for the Stunning Blow feat. I love Incapacitate, a power which I often refer to as the "hulk-stopper"!

And lastly, we come to the best part of this figure: Defense. Mister Miracle starts off with a highly impressive [19][18][17] with Super Senses -- good luck trying to hit that! His defense then jumps again to [19][18][18] with Willpower, making him very dangerous and hard to hit. And finally it drops to [17][16] with Regeneration to potentially bring him back up to his 3rd click -- WOW! He is one tough cookie to hit, and if you land a good blow he’s even tougher to keep down.

Conclusion: With a color in nearly every slot, he is an excellent primary attacker and even better support piece thanks to flight, ouwit, probability control, and an extremely tough defense. Throw in the JLA team ability and you have a very hard piece to K.O., at a paltry 145 points!

Final Rating: 5 out of 5!

Today's review is Mister Miracle from Origin

 

Man, a lot of good pieces came from Origin didn’t they?

Overall:   Basically my feelings on this guy have stayed the same since we first reviewed him all the way back in May.  I still think he is a great piece, and I may have jipped him on a point or two before.  He turned out to be a pretty popular piece to play and it is easy to see why.   He is not that hard to find either, so he makes a great addition to basically any team.  He gets an extra half point form before for the pure power of his annoyance.

Constructed/Unrestricted:  4 / 5

Sealed/Draft: 4.5 / 5

 

Overall:  4 / 5

 

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