Wizkids continues it’s preview of Heroclix for the upcoming set for this summer’s movie Green Lantern. The latest two figures to be shown off are Sinestro and Abin Sur. The set will be released May 18th.
At only 135 points, Sinestro comes to the fight armed with lots of useful tricks resulting from his many years of experience as a Green Lantern. Sinestro’s opening click Running Shot helps him get in to the fight and manuever where he can do the most good. However, if the Lantern from Korugar would rather pick his moment more carefully, Sinestro can instead use his Telekinesis to either position an ally or enemy to a better tactical position for your Green Lanterns!
Early-dial Enhancement demonstrates Sinestro’s tutelage and experience being put to good use by other Green Lanterns, and gives way to Perplex as Sinestro takes a more active role in directing the Lanterns’ efforts. Toughness helps manage some of the damage dealt to Sinestro while mid-dial Defend helps keep those Green Lantern rookies safe!
Late-dial, Sinestro trades in his Defend for Energy Shield/Deflection as he attempts to better protect himself from ranged attacks. We also see a hint of the Sinestro we’ve all come to know as he picks up more aggressive tactics with Blades/Claws/Fangs and Exploit Weakness.
At only 70 points, Abin Sur is a welcome addition to Green Lantern teams. Early-dial Running Shot and Ranged Combat Expert give Abin all sorts of ranged options as he enters the battle. No matter what you choose, with his Willpower Abin Sur is able to follow up the next turn with a similar attack or use the other option!
Mid-dial Abin Sur picks up Incapacitate as he attempts to lock down the foes of the Green Lantern Corps. Late-dial Abin Sur gets grounded by some Earthbound/Neturalized but picks up some Pulse Wave proving you can’t keep a good Green Lantern down!
