HeroClix On The Road 2012 - Punisher!
Published on May 9th, 2012
Greetings WizKids Games Fans and Supporters!
One of the great things about going to conventions is the chance to meet new players and also to see players again that you havenít seen in a while. Itís even better when you get to sit down and play a HeroClix game with them. Better still would be to deal out a little punishment to their figures in that game and to claim a prize while doing it. What better way to ensure that you can punish future players who would stand in your way than with our third 2012 HeroClix convention preview, the Punisher.
The Punisher, also known as Frank Castle, has lots of criminals to punish because of the death of his family by the mob, but he has also taken on other causes over the years. When Captain America apparently died at the end of the Civil War, Punisher decided to wear a costume inspired by him. Unfortunately, the Punisher wasnít exactly like Captain America! With the My Leadership Style isÖ Different trait, you can remove tokens from friendly characters that have KOíd opposing characters with an attack. The Punisher can also Start in the Shadows (Stealth) so he canít be seen by opposing characters while targeting them with his Infrared Goggles, which allows him to ignore hindering terrain for line of fire purposes, and his Sharpshooter ability, which allows him to ignore opposing characters for line of fire purposes.
If thatís not enough to deal with your opponent, the Punisher can use his High-Caliber Bullets (Penetrating/Psychic Blast) to cut through opposing characters defenses to make sure that they take the damage. Finally, unlike Captain America, the Punisher has no qualms about killing those who have broken the law and he can charge in with his Does Cap Kill You LikeÖThis (Charge) power to finish off the opposing characters.
This figure will first be available at Gen Con 2012 as a prize. Just donít alienate your friends by punishing them too much with this figure in your local HeroClix games! Tune in on May 16th for another exciting Convention preview
Wow, he's pricey for what he does. Short life too. Nice to see a different take, but the first con ex I don't really care about.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Curse word expletive curse curse curse swear curse swear expletive. I want this fig just for who it is. Danged it all to all cursing swearing curse.
First person who wants a WL Hal Jordan and can offer him wins. I might throw in something else too...
Can we get the curse filter turned off for a moment??
I'd like to express my feelings about the fact that I will never have this awesome figure...... gee thanks Mr. Wizkids (for nothing)
"Never" is a long time, friend. Don't give up hope!
(Just give up lots of other figures or dollar bills)
God is smarter than we are. Trust Him. ...

I'm with the first guy. Shame we can't get wider access to this guy but y'know what? That's fine. The coolest thing about the figure is the sculpt -- but beyond that, I know I have other options to achieve similar effects.

Currently hoping for: A cost-effective way to get the Horsemen.
Ugh. I hate this figure. Because I LOVE it and have to have it. So far, the only Con LE that I have really wanted was Moonstone. (I want the others just to satisfy the completionist in me.) But I seriously gotta have this figure.
Yes, its pricey @ 122 pts and a range of 6. (6? WTF?) But I love the sculpt and the power set on this figure.
And, unlike the other Con LEs...I really, really need this one.
Not removing this until we get ROCKABILLY MODOK! ROCKABILLY MODOK! ROCKABILLY MODOK!
