Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Just under two weeks to go until the official release of the Marvel HeroClix: The Avengers movie HeroClix set! On April 18th stores everywhere will be selling this exciting addition to the HeroClix universe, and we thought it would be a good time to take the opportunity and introduce you all to the Avengers movie HeroClix product line!
Let’s start with The Avengers movie HeroClix Starter set:
The Avengers movie HeroClix starter is designed to be everything a new player needs to get playing HeroClix, and should be a familiar product SKU for experienced players and retailers. Included are six figures optimized to play together or one of several team combinations, two maps, the complete HeroClix rulebook, the Powers and Abilities card, tokens, and exclusive Online-Enhanced content!
As a bonus preview, let’s check out the Captain America, The First Avenger, from the Marvel HeroClix: The Avengers movie Starter:
Next up for the Core-Hobby Channel, we have The Avengers movie HeroClix CounterTop Display:
The Avengers movie HeroClix CounterTop display features something new to HeroClix: the three figure Team Pack! Team Packs are designed to offer players three figures that are thematically tied to each other for easy team building and play experiences! An example of a Team Pack would be the S.H.I.E.L.D. Team pack that includes a Nick Fury HeroClix figure, a Black Widow HeorClix figure, and a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent HeroClix Figure.
There are four Team Packs per Avengers movie HeroClix CounterTop display, and each comes initially shrink-wrapped with six single-figure boosters for easy purchases:
Retailers can sell these as one “brick”, or break them down for individual purchases! Whichever they decide to do, you can be sure that these boosters are filled with exciting figures from The Avengers movie, as well as the recent blockbuster movies Thor and Captain America!
Next up, for our mass-channel retail partners, there is the Marvel HeroClix: The Avengers Gravity Feed display:
A familiar sight in the mass-channel market, The Avengers movie HeroClix Gravity Feed is available in a couple of different flavors, both 24 count and 30 count displays. These are targeted at broader channels, both domestic and international (big box stores, supermarkets, electronics stores, specialty retailers, etc…). As a special treat, hidden in the 30 count displays are some exclusive goodies for players lucky enough to find them!
Also available to the mass-channel is The Avengers movie HeroClix Mini-Game:
The Avengers movie HeroClix Mini-Game is intended to serve as a mass-channel starter game. Included are four figures (identical to four of the six figures found in the core-hobby Starter set below), rules, a Powers and Ability card, and fold-out gameboard. The Mini-Game is a new product type WizKIds Games is experimenting with in order to introduce a starter-style SKU into the mass-channel.
We hope this has been a helpful breakdown of all of The Avengers movie HeroClix product coming soon to stores near you!
