Until the figures are in the stores, Joe Attacktix and Web of Webhead will be previewing the new Star Wars Attacktix Series 4 and Transformers Attacktix Series 1.

Today’s previews are the newest versions of the Skywalker twins…:

Luke Endor

Luke Skywalker

  • Attack: Lightsaber Slash
  • Defense: Large Base
  • Points: 30
  • Attacktix Class: Warrior
  • Star Wars Class: Rebel
  • Base Speed: 12
  • Special Power: Rescue – Trooper
  • Number: (SW/13)4)

This new sculpt of Luke shows him in the Endor Jungle.  Like most Luke's, he's a Rebel Warrior, with good good speed and a great defense for his 30 points.  Much like the Endor version of Han, this new Luke is not tied to the other "main" characters through his special, instead, he has a Trooper based Rescue power, giving him a chance to escape harm if you are running Troopers in your squad.  Wicket to the rescue!

Princess Leia, Slave

Princess Leia

  • Attack: Grapple Hook and Line
  • Defense: Medium Base
  • Points: 40
  • Attacktix Class: Specialist
  • Star Wars Class: Rebel 
  • Base Speed: 4
  • Special Power: Rally – Rebel 
  • Number: (SW/18)4)

Luke's twin sister Leia shows up in this set in her "slave girl" outfit from her time in service to Jabba.  Expensive and on the slow side, she makes up for these shortcomings with the (almost) always useful Rally power, and a new powerful attack.  Leia has one of the new weapons in the set, a huge grappling hook and line.  Though the line prevents the grappling hook from having the range of untethered missiles, one can guess that she may snag an unsuspecting enemy when you pull back the line.

That’s it for today.  Make sure to check the Joe Attacktix site for the Transformers Previews.  Check back here tomorrow for the remaining starter fig previews. – B

Its hard to see Leia as being a super “cost effective” piece.. or in other words, worth the hefty 40 point pricetag, BUT, I like seeing the new attack & I think regardless, she’ll be a lot of fun to play with. 🙂
