Heroclix Custom of the Week: The Arrowcar

Wizkids Games has done an astonishingly good job over the years of producing Heroclix figures of DCU characters (and some other stuff, I guess) for their signature tabletop game.

But occasionally I like to add to their existing options by creating custom Heroclix figures of characters Wizkids has NOT created (yet).  Usually these customs are based on existing dials of other characters; that way, I can repurpose figures I would never use with ones that evoke delight.

This week's offering is the ever-ridiculous Arrowcar!

Just as in the Golden Age Green Arrow stories, this Arrowcar can take a beating, run roughshod over hindering terrain, convert into a submersible for underwater adventure, and give Green Arrow a boost on long-ranged attacks.  But most important (because it is based on one of Yugio's many absurd characters 'the Catapult Turtle'), it has the ability TO HURL OLLIE UP TO THE ROOFTOPS, where he can shoot off an arrow as he lands.

Assuming he doesn't smash face first into the side of building, of course.

Actually... yours is much better looking than the one on the comics.

It's from DC Direct.

Good job on the card stats, Scipio!

Thanks! It's not always possible to find a good match for a character, but with the 'catapult' power this one was a natural.
