The Book of Gladiatrons

The Book of Gladiatrons
Zanafor's Discovery - Collection 4 - "Soulborgs and Elves"


Spoiler Alert!
If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: The Gladiatrons come from the flatland region of Alpha Prime. Originally, they were constructed as scouts for their Blastatron counterparts. Since being called to Valhalla, they have evolved into their own deadly killing squad. Beware the approaching Gladiatrons: once engaged, they can focus their energy, allowing their defensive powers to enhance. Their Cyberclaw locks most opponents down, and enemy warriors unlucky enough to be thusly immobilized can do little more than pray for a miracle to survive the attack. (Hasbro)
_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • - CYBERCLAW : Gladiatron Movement Using Cyberclaw
    Are the Gladiatrons also stuck in the engagement because of Cyberclaw?
    No. Cyberclaw only affects figures that are engaged to a Gladiatron. Once any opponent's figures enter a space adjacent to a Gladiatron, they cannot move. That includes movements around the Gladiatron while still staying engaged. However, the Gladiatrons can leave the engagement if they choose to. On a side note; if 2 opposing sides both have figures with Cyberclaw, they would lock each other down. (Hasbro FAQ)

    - CYBERCLAW : Units With Disengage and Ghost Walk
    Is a character with Ghost Walk or Disengage also affected by Cyberclaw?
    Yes. As soon as they pass onto a space adjacent to a Gladiatron, they are locked into the engagement. No special power on an army card or glyph can get them out of the engagement. (Hasbro FAQ)

Few synergies and bonding? Maybe....but what they have is pretty darned hot. If you draft them with the Blastatrons, you will probably never have to put an order marker on them, and they'll boost all your attacks. That's pretty sweet.

Oh! I totally forgot about the movement bonding. I guess I thought they were not good because I can never build a good enough army to win and that they're hunters. Forget about what I said earlier.

They are a great 4-squad with the bastatrons! And they're cool/great sculpts.

These guys are great with the Blastatrons! Use the Gladiatron movement bonding first and surround your enemy with them then attack with the Blastatrons! If you get all 4 around the same figure you get 5 attack, it's even better if your Blastatrons have height advantage or 2 squads of Gladiatrons!
These guys Cyberclaw is great for holding a target in place!

So Raelin and her kyrie ilk can fly over figures without becoming engaged, but can she fly over gladiotrons without becoming cyberclawed? I'm inclined to say no because the card says, "enter or occupy a space" but I can also see the other argument.

The gladiatron must be engaged to claw you. As long as you fly over without touching down in any of the spaces adjacent to a gladiatron, you keep out of engagement and avoid The Claw.

But the card says "enter or occupy a space" and not engagement. While Raelin does not get engaged when she flys, she does enter a space. Since Ghost walk is negated, I can see why flying would be negated. Other cards (Nakitas) also make special mention of engagement. The gladiatron, in effect, could grab the figure out of the air with the cyberclaw-tractor beam thing.
In any case, it makes a BIG strategic difference if gladiatrons can halt the movement of flying units. I can't find anything in Hasbro or our FAQs.

Flyers do not become adjacent when passing over a figure and, therefore, are not affected by the cyberclaw.

To that end, flying figures don't actually enter or occupy any spaces during their move except their starting and ending spaces (assuming they are flying for their entire move).

Can you choose to release an enemy figure from the cyberclaw?

This seems to indicate that the Gladiatrons can voluntarily release the cyberclaw.
