Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD and HeroClix Exclusive Combo Pack

Greetings HeroClix Fans and Supporters!

Some of our eagle-eyed HeroClix players, collectors, and enthusiasts have already spotted the Stan Lee HeroClix figure we posted to our Facebook a couple of weeks ago.  Amidst the excitement and incredible discussion this triggered online, there were a few questions that stood out:

  • “What is this?”
  • “Is this real?”
  • “OMG! I must have it! Where do I get it?”

Rest assured True Believers, the Stan Lee HeroClix is indeed real and actually part of a four-figure exclusive Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD set! From the Comic-Con Movie website:

“COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE- a film by Morgan Spurlock explores this amazing cultural phenomenon by following the lives of five attendees as they descend upon the ultimate geek mecca at San Diego Comic-Con 2010:

  • Eric, an aspiring illustrator, is hoping to impress publishers and land a job;
  • Holly, costume and creature designer, hopes her creations will win the big prize;
  • Chuck, a long-time comic book dealer, is looking for a big sale to pay off his debts;
  • Skip, longtime amateur illustrator wants to be discovered at this year’s event;
  • James, a young fan, hopes his girlfriend will accept a dramatic proposal.

One on one interviews with Comic-Con veterans who have turned their passions into professions include Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller, Kevin Smith, Matt Groening, Seth Rogen, Eli Roth and others are shared throughout the film along with up close and up front coverage of all the panels, parades, photos, costumes, crowds and camaraderie that make up one of the largest fan gatherings in the U.S.”

Available this July for a limited North American brick and mortar store release, this exclusive DVD and HeroClix combo pack will contain four HeroClix figures not found anywhere else, and a Region 1 coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!).

The four HeroClix figures included in this exclusive combo-pack represent key figures who helped make this movie possible:   (click on images to enlarge)

Stan Lee: 

Morgan Spurlock:

Joss Whedon:

Harry Knowles: 

This HeroClix Comic-Con combo pack should not be confused with the NECA action figure combo pack, which includes two of the noted visionaries above.  The NECA action figure combo pack also contains a Region 1-coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!) and two action figures to re-enact all of your favorite moments from the movie!

Again, the Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD and HeroClix Combo-Pack will be available this July for a limited North American brick and mortar store release through traditional distributor channels.   Included are the four HeroClix figures above and a Region 1 coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!).  A limited quantity will also be available at San Diego Comic Con as well, so please visit the NECA booth if you’re attending!

Dark Reign

Hello again!

Our latest addition to your ATA arsenal is none other than the sinister Dark Avengers!

 

Gathered to be Norman Osborn’s “public” strikeforce, the Dark Avengers battled their opponents without mercy or compassion. Now your Dark Avengers can do the same! With the ability to potentially decrease an opposing figure’s defense values, you increase your likelihood of making that critical attack against your team’s enemies!

Assemble your force, print out your own copy of the Dark Avengers ATA, and establish a “Dark Reign” of your own at your Venue’s next HeroClix game!

Thanks for joining us! Dark Avengers is the last ATA for Web of Spider-Man, but we’ll be back with more PnP materials in the future!

“Breaking the Law! Breaking the Law!”

Hey there fellow HeroClix Fans!

Do you feel like you need more action in your game?  Well how about something that will help you get more out of your Move actions in your next game?

 

 

Wow! For just 1 point for each Outlaws figure, you can potentially modify your figure’s speed value by up to +3! Launch your figures into battle faster, or Leap/Climb away from danger even further than before!

Combine this ATA with last week’s Frogs Legs Feat and you won’t even have to concern yourself with Water Terrain as you move your figures into position!

So assemble your Outlaws, print out your copy of the Outlaws ATA, and dominate the map at your Venues’ next HeroClix event!

Tastes like Chicken?

Hello Again! 

No, we’re not swapping recipes this week, but we are bringing you an exciting new Feat to print out and play in your next game!

 

 

That’s right, for 3 points you can allow your  :m-boot: figures under 151 points (including a certain Frog of Thunder) to use the Swim ability! Your selected figures can then splish-splash to their heart’s content as your opponents have to stop and wade through Water Terrain.

With easy Pre-Requisites and a low cost, Frogs Legs will fit on most any force. Print it out and use it at your local game store’s next event!

Stay tuned next week for even more fun and exciting Print and Play installments! In the meantime, have a great weekend and happy Clix’ing!

Waiting for the U-Foes

Hello HeroClix’ers!

Here we are again with another installment for your Web of Spider-Man Print and Play collection, and you will love playing this ATA at your local Venue’s next Tournament!

  

Led by the sinister Vector, the U-Foes (Vapor, X-Ray, and Ironclad) are a dark reflection of the Fantastic Four, having also gained their powers via Cosmic Rays.  Unlike the Fantastic Four, the U-Foes use their powers purely for their own benefit and have clashed with the Hulk, the Avengers, and most recently helped trigger a series of events leading to Norman Osborn’s Siege of Asgard!

As you can see, the U-Foes ATA is designed to help them take down your opponent’s heavy hitters, be they Gamma-irradiated goliaths or Asgardians! At only 3 points per U-Foe, you can play all four members and the ATA for 300 points exactly!

So what are you waiting for? Assemble your U-Foes, print out the ATA and surprise your opponents at your Venue’s next event!

Out of the Shadows! A Web of Spider-Man PnP Article

Hello HeroClix’ers!

Web of Spider-Man is out, folk are playing with new figures, and tournaments are taking place all over! It’s a good time to be a HeroClix fan.

If you’re like me, you enjoy Tournament play at your local Game or Hobby store.  If so, then have we got something for you! Check out the first in a series of Print and Play releases for Web of Spider-Man:


Led by Wolverine, X-Force battles threats to Mutant safety and security using Black-Ops style methodology and tactics.  As you can see, the ATA allows them to slip in and out of the shadows (Hindering Terrain) without penalty to their movement, and at only 4 points per figure, the ATA can fit on a variety of Team configurations in both Golden and Modern Age formats!

So build your team, print out the ATA, and bring your X-Force to the next Tournament at your local Venue!

Stay tuned for more exciting Print and Play elements in the weeks to come! Have a great weekend everyone, and happy Clix’ing!

Web of Spider-Man Preview 6

Web of Spider-Man previews are burning white-hot.

The response, thus far, has exceeded my lofty expectations, and like you, I am ready to tear open some Web booster packs.  As the previews have been so positively received, I am hesitant to unleash more content. That being said, there is sooo much more to talk about in the set, and today, I have a particular gem to share with you.

With our set designs, we have tried to incorporate fully playable teams at reasonable point costs, as was mentioned with the U-Foes preview article.  Also, within a set, we try to incorporate a few buildable off-theme “teams” that can entice fans beyond the core theme.

The updated X-Force black ops team from the past few years stood out early on as an interesting, relatively small team that could get some X-Universe characters into a Spidey themed set. It includes three characters that were in need of updated remakes- Wolfsbane, Warpath, and X-23-, and it is led by one of the few characters in the Marvel Universe that rivals Spidey in overall popularity, Wolverine.

Coming up with fresh takes on popular characters in the Marvel Universe always provides a fun challenge, especially as we head into our fourteenth Marvel release. With Web, I think we did a great job coming up with unique Spideys and in this case, a great new look at Wolverine. The dynamic black-and-gray X-Force uniforms provide a look that will make it easy for new fans to aggregate their X-Force characters, and it frames each character in an all-new way. Who doesn’t want a stealthy, covert Wolverine?

Speaking of framing iconic characters in an all-new way, we decided to take your advice. We’ve been doing that a lot, lately. You have some pretty good ideas. Please, keep ’em coming!

With our Wolverine in Web, we have included perhaps the most request HeroClix R&D mechanic of all-time.

Yep. That’s right, we did it.

We finally gave you the Trait that you wanted, Wolverine’s Healing Factor. (Click the picture for a preview.)

Click Me!

Wolverine now has can showcase his astonishing ability to walk away from the most brutal beatdown and keep on fighting. Powerful? Yes. Too powerful? We shall see. From a R&D perspective, we’ve explored this space a little bit in prior sets and with some of our prototype designs. Wolverine  (with his shiny new Healing Factor ability) made it through rounds of playtesting, and was deemed ready for primetime. I’m excited to see how fans will deal with this particular monster.

Going forward, I’m not sure that all Wolverine’s will have this exact Healing Factor ability, but Web’s X-Force Wolverine will be our first test of this powerful new Trait. In addition to his highly iconic Healing Factor, this Wolverine is also unlike many others, in that he serves a leadership role. Unlike many of the lone-wolf Wolvies in past sets, this Wolverine is a Reluctant, but Brutal Leader. He also includes a black ops favorite- Stealth. An intriguing and one-of-a-kind piece, Wolverine can lead in a squad, cloaked in shadows. Then, when the time is right, unleash six Claws of pure hell, giving way to his signature Whirling Attack.

He’s a figure definitely befitting a preview all-to-himself.

As an added spoiler, Web of Spider-Man includes Wolverine’s son, Daken. That means that you also can get a pseudo-family reunion going with a Wolverine, X-23, and Daken team.  Neat!

If you’re at GenCon now, have fun in the events, and let us know how the best four days in gaming went on our WizKids FaceBook page.

Good luck!
