When you’ve got millions to spend, it’s easy to sign checks to get hold of rare pieces. What a bore! and not at all what Van Heckton’s into. For him, collecting is a hunt and only priceless objects are worth tracking down. Ancient jewelery from lost civilizations, unique extraterrestrial material, the last hides of extinct species and various books of spells form just a tiny part of his collection! But the worst thing is that Van Heckton is prepared to do ANYTHING to get what he wants. And in Clint City, only the Pussycats are still capable of throwing a spanner in the works of this fantastically wealthy plunderer.

As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.

    Van Heckton is a reference to the Marvel comics character: Taneleer Tivan or more widely known just as The Collector.

    Taneleer Tivan is a Marvel character co-created by Don Heck. So, Van Heckton is actually a word play on Taneleer Tivan's and Don Heck's name.
    Tivan - Ti = Van
    Heck Don reverse ordered becomes Heck Don, hence Heckton.

    Maybe its just me, but his motivations and design makes me think of Looten Plunder from Captain Planet. Hey, if Treeman was a shout-out to it, then why not?

    I'd like to make my statement about this card, because people underestimate him.
    Van Heckton
    1. STATS
    2 power and 7 damage for a 5 star card. Pretty terrible would all say. His damage is odd for Uppers, Just like Dorian. His power of 2 gives him slim to none chances of winning. Damage reducers hurt. All start hurt even more. Striker and Alexei... well, Van Heckton shouldn't go to a hockey or football matches!
    2. ABILITY AND BONUS
    Growth: Power + 2 makes Van Heckton more threatening with every round. At round one he is with 4 power which is nothing special, even low for an average card until we get to the last round when he turns to a 10/7 beast that can slay a lot of mighty foes! His sweet Uppers bonus ensure that the enemy has to use 1 or 2 pills in order to make a tie or beat him. SOB takes away a part of his advantage but he can still stand and get through. Facing GHEISH, Roots or any card with SOA competely ruins him. Also Nighmares and Piranas power reducers cut most of his potential.
    Cards which compliment him nicely are Hugo, Ambre and Eyrik. Hugo compliments Uppers nicely for lower pill battles while Ambre can boost his power even more if Courage ability is avaiable for you on round 4. Eyrik takes away 1 power from your opponents which is always nice.
    3. ART
    What can I say abotu the art - rich people can achieve a lot in terms of material world. I realy like Caelus Cr's books!
    4. PRICE
    1200 to 1500 is pretty reasonable for this card as it has a major flaw and is affordable for new players. Can be useful to them if they play the card right.
    5. OVERALL
    For stats i give 5/10
    For ability and bonus 10/10
    For art 10/10
    For price 10/10
    Overall 8.75/10

    The power of this card is very low, its ability makes Van Heckton very predictable but if there is no card on the enemy's hand that can weaken him he can make it through and kick some foes! I can say for myself that this card has won me some matches and was quite helpful even I knew that my enemy awaits my move. Give Van Heckton a credit! he's not good for an ELO based deck, but he can really shine in T2 mono Uppers deck as there are no 4 or 5 star cards on Uppers that can trully achieve such power on their own. Destroyed by SOA, victorious if SOA avoided. Give him a credit!

    Why do people keep saying he is based on Van Hellsing? That doesn't seem to fit.

    Perhaps he is based on the Van Eaton Gallery, a collector of animation art. http://www.vegalleries.com/

    High potential but is a total glass cannon. Maybe one more damage to make him worthwhile for the risk, but at turn one and two he is useless. Turn 3 he is a 1 turn unstable Dorian turn 4 he is a unstable +1 power Gradymag. Maybe he should had been like 7 pwr with growth + or - 3-4atk instead
