Anything. I am incapable of error. Any result that displeases me I can simply reverse. There is nothing I need to worry on, for I am Thanos. And Thanos is supreme. Supreme.”

Program Overview

The Infinity Gauntlet program is our most aggressive program in years and features ALL NEW, ALL UNIQUE content.

The program is built around the story of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet. Each month players will gather at stores everywhere to compete for coveted Limited Edition figures, culminating with winners receiving Thanos atop his Shrine to Death. However, we also layered in a VERY strong participation prize element into the program. In Kit 1, each player will be given a “gem-less” Infinity Gauntlet object just for showing up to the 1st event.

Each month thereafter, players will be awarded participation prizes in the form of colored Gems. Each colored Gem attaches to the Infinity Gauntlet and unlocks a special power. After month 7 each player should have a gauntlet with 6 gems and be ready for the final showdown with Thanos at his Shrine.

Customizable event templates will be pre-loaded into the WizKids Event System for easy scheduling. We will roll out the month 1 to 4 templates in November. The event templates are provided as suggested guidelines for each event. You are free to customize the event template to your liking.

The contest begins for the greatest prize of them all! The Infinity Gauntlet has been found and now heroes and villains from all over the galaxy have arrived to do battle for nothing less than control of all they survey! Can you be the first to obtain all six Infinity Gems and assemble the full might of the Infinity Gauntlet?

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 2 (February)

As your forces continue their quest to complete the Infinity Gauntlet they encounter the first Infinity Gem and its guardian. The In-Betweener is a balancing force linking both Order and Chaos and one of the more powerful personalities in the universe. Can you defeat your foes and obtain the Soul Gem while avoiding the watchful gaze of the In-Betweener?

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 3 (March)

You’ve acquired the Soul Gem but your quest has only just begun! With only five Gems to go, you’ve discovered the hidden location of the Power Gem, which empowers the rest of the Gems and the Gauntlet with a limitless store of energy. Beware! It is rumored that the Champion is also on Tamarata, and he isn’t known to give things up without a fight!

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 4 (April)

Your Gauntlet is now empowered by both the Soul and Power Gems, and while your quest continues for the remaining four Gems, the tranquility of the Garden is a most welcome sight. However, it is not mere coincidence that you find yourselves here; it is rumored that the legendary Gardner, keeper of the Time Gem resides here as well! Will you add the Time Gem to your Gauntlet, or will you instead be added to the Garden’s collection of statuary, frozen in time forever?

The April 2012 kit includes: The Gardner LE Figure (4) and Time Gem (participation prize – 20).

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 5 (May)

You’ve escaped becoming a permanent addition to the Gardner’s statuary, and now your Gauntlet is half-empowered with the Soul, Power, and Time Gems! Now you’ve discovered that the Runner has challenged any and all to a race across space itself! Can you survive long enough to acquire the Space Gem and defeat the Runner at his own game?

The May 2012 kit includes: The Runner LE Figure (4) and Space Gem (participation prize – 20), as well as 10 Double-sided Maps (Space Racetrack and Collector’s Ship) for use in Infinity Gauntlet Month Five and Six events.

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 6 (June)

With only two Gems left to obtain, your quest to reassemble the Infinity Gauntlet is almost complete! However your journey has never been more dangerous as your next adversary is none other than the Collector himself! Can you sneak aboard his spacecraft and steal away with the Reality Gem, or will you instead become the latest acquisition for his collection?

The June 2012 kit includes: The Collector LE Figure (4) and Reality Gem (participation prize – 20).

Infinity Gauntlet Kit 7 (July)

Only one obstacle stands in your path to ultimate power; the Grandmaster has challenged your force to a contest to be fought on none other than the Mental Plane! With your quest so close to completion, there are fewer stakes higher than this! Can you outwit the Grandmaster and defeat him at his own game, or will you instead be outplayed yourself?

The July 2012 Kit includes: The Grandmaster LE Figure (4) and Mind Gem (participation prize – 20), as well as 10 Double-sided Maps (Mental Plane and Shrine to Death) for use in Infinity Gauntlet Month Seven and Eight events.

Your Gauntlet is assembled but one opponent still remains between you and control over all of reality; Thanos the Mad Titan himself! He has assembled a host of heroes and villains to oppose you. Can you survive this last conflict and emerge victorious with the greatest prize of all? Face your foes head-on and demonstrate why you above all others deserve omnipotence!

The August 2012 Kit includes: Thanos LE Figure (2), Shrine to Death (2) colossal base, and Terraxia LE Figure (participation prize – 20).
