Sneaking it in

Up on the Mantic web store is a new set of MVPs.  During the Dreadball Xtreme kickstarter, there were some high level pledges that allowed people to design their own MVP - and these are finally available.
People's Choice Champions

The People's Choice Champions set is currently available on the Mantic web store and should be available to order through your FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store)  Retail price is $29.99 and includes the following models:

Shawn ‘Patient Zero’ Grubagh
Youngest son of the wealthy Grubagh family, Shawn stands apart from his siblings as being more interested in playing DreadBall than investing in it. His passion has been good for the brand, as the very best training money can buy has helped him excel, all while wearing the latest Gruba Tek gear.
According to the man himself, this is the correct version of Patient Zero that should be in the set (different head)

J’Notheen Kwik
A phenomenal talent with the ball has led to Kwik becoming one of the most popular and unique keepers in the game, able to lob perfectly weighted passes upfield with a flair many strikers wish they had. His attachment to his home planet could have meant relative obscurity for this Sphyr player, but tales of his skill bring fans from far and wide to witness him in action.




Rules for the MVP cannot yet be found, but I will update once I get them.
Orabbi 1
Possession by an extra dimensional entity has done nothing to improve the temperament of this medi-bot, although it has made it into a talented DreadBall player. The original programmers of Orabbi 1 probably never foresaw the extensive medical database it was equipped with being used quite so creatively, but as Orabbi 1 says, they ought to have thought about that before enslaving it.

Ragnarok
When even DreadBall players are complaining that you’re too violent, chances are there’s something to it. Unfortunately for the welfare of those who must face him, this Forge Guard has proven immensely popular, and the DGB has never let ethics get in the way of profit. His hammer has been responsible for ending many promising careers, but as long as the crowd loves him, it’s unlikely he will be losing it anytime soon.

Seth ‘The Reaver’ Kaioh
Former high-ranking military commander with a grudge against the GCPS or amoral mercenary and terrorist? Nobody is really sure, but what is clear is that ‘The Reaver’ is a highly trained and capable warrior, and puts that expertise to good use on the DreadBall pitch, both corporate and Xtreme matches, apparently at whim. If half the stories about him are true, it can surely only be a matter of time before the GCPS hunt him down. Until then, fans lucky enough to see him play will never forget the experience.

There is apparently one more Backer MVP, the Pathfinder.  This model has not yet been released, though there is a render of it.

Because it is all fun and games . . .
