Took the opportunity to see DEADPOOL tonight, the 6:40pm showing at my local Regal. Loved it. And I’m not really a big Deadpool fan. Heard an NPR spot for it this morning, and it referenced another review calling the whole flick one long inside joke. They weren’t kidding. But, there’s the fun of it. And it did make me like Deadpool a bit more as a character. (Always considered him a derivative mash-up of Wolverine and Spider-Man in a ninja-ish […]
See the link below: http://www.hcrealms.com/forum/showpost.php?p=7942557&postcount=2 Focus was mostly on the characters in the “Deadpool Corps” and the “Marvel Zombies” chase figures, but the guy did cover the new Constrictor, he mentioned by name a new Anaconda, and i see on of marvel’s “voodoo villains”, the Black Talon! Haven’t read any Spider-Man in a long time, so this “Superior Spider-Man” is incredibly intriguing. Looking like it’ll be really good, fun set. I’d say, “I can’t wait for the 14th of May!” but […]
Alright! Very cool preview today for the Marvel HeroClix DEADPOOL set: Vamp, and her surprisingly masculine “alter ego”, Animus. And I mean “alter ego” in the more traditional sense. As far as mechanics go, she’s using a variation on the “Morph” game effects. Pretty cool, pretty cool.
Excellent preview today over at heroclix.com featuring not only Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, but also a step-by-step on how to the Split and Merge mechanics to play them with the MK & CW Duo figure from last year’s ASM set. Nice job. EDIT (15 APR 2014): Just wanted to add this next picture for reference:
Over on HCRealms.com, pictures and HeroClix news is coming in from the 2014 GAMA Trade Show. SPOILED: Flag-Smasher! “Mark Gruenwald Era” Captain America foe (still have his first appearances). Despite the Space Ghost look, when he’s written well he comes off to me as a kind of “Batman as villain” type for the Marvel Universe. Not as intelligent as Batman, though. Nuts, in fact. Has this weird pseudo-utopian anarcho-capitalist “teardown the borders between nations” New World Order agenda. (Did a […]
Wandered into the “rumors” forum of HCRealms.com. Found this thread: http://www.hcrealms.com/forum/showthread.php?t=483801http://www.hcrealms.com/forum/showthread.php?t=483801 I assume it’s the set for either quarter 3 or quarter 4 of 2014. Deadpool? Really? *sigh* Well, maybe Deadpool is just “the hook”. It may be a “supervillain heavy” kind of set. We’re seeing sculpts for the Flash Thompson version of Venom, a Secret Empire generic, the teleporting eXile Blink (hey, doesn’t she create teleportation portals? like Spiral?), Deadpool (of course), Doctor Bong (nemesis of Howard the Duck), and we’re […]
HeroClix. Can make you want to see characters that you couldn’t stand in the comics into characters you want to see on the map. Hypno-Hustler! And don’t forget his Mercy Killers! A 1970’s spin on the Ringmaster and his Circus of Crime. Ringmaster has his top hat with mesmerizing Nazi-derived tech, Hypno-Hustler has his funky tech goggles which do the same, although he apparently needs the assist of his MerCy Killers “hypnotic singing”. You have to wonder what the writer […]
