The expansion includes April’s action dice. They feature a double shuriken and two chi faces making her a long-range powerhouse fighter. It also includes seven action cards such as First-Aid, which allows her to heal the Turtles, the boot-shaking Gravity Gauntlet, that both inflicts damage to opponents and knocks them back, and the Stealth Suit, which makes her incredibly hard to hit in combat.
Also available in this expansion pack, is a new April O’Neil figure sculpt with a completely different look. With her hood up and gravity gauntlet raised, April is ready to stand up and fight alongside Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo.
You’ll be able to get the expansion through an IndieGoGo campaign which kicks off March 3 at 2 AM PST, for 2 weeks. Get onboard for an exclusive comic offer.
