Looking forward to this. Brings back great memories of the TV series.

As long as they’re including characters from the “Batman Beyond” series, I hope we get the Dee-Dee Twins….

Also: I hope WizKids makes a set based on another DC Comics’ animated series: “Justice League Unlimited”!

Really want a new Vigilante.

And finally see a Longshadow clix, preferably as a colossal figure.)

World Championships Update! [With Previews!]| HeroClix

World Championships Update! | HeroClixhttps://wizkids.com/heroclix/2018/05/14/world-championships-update/

A new STARRO! And more “Starrophyte Minions”! Never thought I’d see WizKids produce another, very cool.

Love that “Bat-Bot” as well, not familiar with the storyline, very cool.

*sigh* more to “chase” after….

WizKids’ Rules Forum: HeroClix: Team Abilities – 2017

ZOMG, they changed/tweaked quite a freaking bit!

Quibbles:

  • HATE that the Serpent Society team ability symbol has disappeared completely.
  • HATE that are not showing the “Minions of Doom” (Marvel brand) or the “Calculator” (DC Comics brand) team ability symbols.

I assume they will appear in this “Past Rules” thing they’ll be doing, but I’m fuzzy about how they’re doing it.

Could have just kept the symbols, changed the definitions. Wondering why they didn’t. Did it cost money in licensing the images or something?

“Yes, but what about ‘HeroClix Dinosaurs’?”

Above is a photo I took back in 2010. I was living on my own, and where I  was living was roomy enough that I set up a “game room”. It was dominated by HeroClix. 

In the picture (which I’d posted to this blog at one point), I’d taken some extra Marvel and DC HeroClix dials, cut off the sculpts, then removed the sculptures from some of WizKids’ HorrorClix “The Lab” set’s Velociraptors I’d managed to get, and glued them to the bases; made my own HeroClix-compatible “mods”. Still have them.

Why bring this up? 

Well, WizKids has been flirting with the idea of making a set or two of HeroClix figures with in-house ideas, rather than relying on official licenses, as they do when using characters from Marvel comics and movies, DC comics and movies, various videogames, et cetera. 

Looks like one idea will hit games and comics shops soon: HeroClix “UNDEAD”. 

I’m excited. In a way that other attempts, like reviving its “MageKnight” brand (the game that gave WizKids its start, which lead to HeroClix) hasn’t been able to do.

UNDEAD looks to be a smaller number of chatacters, “generic” (mostly), in single figure ‘foil packs’. Sounds perfect. 

Why? Sounds like it will be completely compatible with HeroClix, which provides thematic adversaries for our Heroes in HeroClix to combat. The superhero genre is such a mash-up of genres — sci-fi, cosmic/space opera, magic, fantasy, pulp crime, horror, et cetera — it makes sense and provides more options for players. 

Sidenote: I do hope WizKids keeps licenses to continue to produce at least the Marvel characters, but have to admit, the current pace of Marvel and DC releases is crushing to keep up with, and despite never-before-clixed characters finally seeing the light of day and some wonderful dial design, it also feels “diluted”, with so many versions of the same ‘marquee’ characters showing up every year. (And certain characters caught in licensing limbo, like Marvel’s Fantastic Four, making no appearances at all due to legal rights battles.)

Would love to see some other “generics” see publishing as HeroClix, given the “UNDEAD treatment”, so to speak. The old HorrorClix line’s “The Lab” set was chock-full of mad scientists, clones, aliens, cat-people, lizard-people, insect-people, mutates, dinosaurs, robots, apes, and even haunted spacesuits. Theme-y fun.

EDIT: ChessClix, an idea I’ve wanted to see for awhile: do-able as a foil-pack gravity feed set? Had alway imagined them as 100% compatible with HeroClix, just with a “rulez overlay” for playing pieces as thier own game, as “ChessClix”.

Been patiently waiting for WizKids to release the 2017 rules for HeroClix. Chomping at the bit, really.
