Very cool. I wonder what the marketing “customer behavioral” angle is to selling the ‘generic’ equipment packaged inside Super-Boosters that will undoubtedly have ‘specific/named’ Colosal characters…?

NOT really reflective of […]
http://www.hcrealms.com/forum/showthread.php?t=579986 SaturnFlight sez: …sometimes, attack and defense values need to represent threat. Whether we’re talking about HeroClix or superhero genre fiction, rings true to me. A “villain” or “supervillain” is more than a simple rival or antagonist. They are Threats, whose goals and/or activities endanger civilians and “society”, and our intrepid Heroes, in the nadir; to advancement of Human Civilization in the median; to the existence of the Multiverse at their zenith. With many degrees, many phases in between. Anyway, […]
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 […]

Marvel HeroClix: What If? – Runaways: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/09/marvel-heroclix-what-if-runaways/ NICE! Missed these ‘previews’ yesterday. Glad to see a new version of ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’.
https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/07/marvel-heroclix-what-if-punisher/ This is just wild! Shows how fun certain superhero concepts can be in the game of HeroClix, even if the comic book stories they draw from were only “so-so”….
Disclaimer: I’m way, way behind on all the HeroClix releases. HUGE number of characters new and old coming into the game. I love my heroes, but ‘heroes versus heroes’ gets stale, and in order for our heroes to ‘fight the good fight’, somebody’s gotta be out there doing bad stuff. Supervillains are up to no good, heroes gotta fight them. ‘Nuff Said. Marvel supervillain: Doctor Karl Malus. “Evil Scientist.” I’d like to state for the record that real-life scientists are […]
Marvel HeroClix: What If? – In-Betweener: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/05/30/marvel-heroclix-what-if-in-betweener/ What do I still love about the “superhero genre”? The weirdness. What do I still love about clix? Wonderful design. No two ways about it.
I’m having a hard time keeping up with HeroClix, past few years. And I’ve zero time to play the game. Doesn’t keep from buying, doesn’t keep me from chasing down clix for my collection. The main selling points of HeroClix are that it’s a miniatures-based tabletop strategy game using some of *YOUR* favorite comic book superhero characters. But, since ‘heroes versus heroes’ can get a bit stale, it’s fortunate we’re seeing more and more ‘A’-list thru ‘Z’-list “supervillians” getting made […]
Marvel HeroClix: What If? – Daredevil | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/05/25/marvel-heroclix-what-if-daredevil/ “Mainstream” continuity– “What If…?” Love what WizKids is doing with this set. Scott “That Guy” Porter’s Marvel HeroClix: What If? Unboxing Videos | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclixt/2017/05/22/new-marvel-heroclix-what-if-unboxing-videos/ I tell ya, WizKids has released so many characters that I’ve “hungered” for years for, having to think long and hard about what else I’d like to see or chase down. Not a bad problem to have.
I love Rocket Raccoon. Have, still, in my dwindling comic book collection, the 4-issue limited series from the 1980’s. I keep wondering if there’s room in Marvel Studio’s schedule for R.R. to get a ‘stand-alone’ movie, his own ‘origin story’ movie? More like, he and Groot (or maybe without Groot?) take a break away from the Guatdians, with Rocket secretly following a lead about who he is and where he came from because he’s fonally curious enough and has a […]

Marvel HeroClix: AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR: Shifting Focus | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/04/26/marvel-heroclix-avengersdefenders-war-shifting-focus-part-i/ Love this particular use of the “Shifting Focus” design concept. Hmm, so, what’s best? Start game with Incap version? Or with PPB version to position, the SF into RS/Incap, then SG back later? Hmm. WOW. This was unexpected, and is very intriguing! I thought the non-SF version from a previous preview was interesting as well, so, will include it here for comparison–
Opinion: I have not read the currently on-going storyline this version of Steve “Captain America” Rogers is from. I’ve only read about it, and as a fan of Cap and Falc since the 70’s, I’m rather rankled by it. But, have others have said, it’s a stunt-story that needs to finish running its course, doing what Marvel does: tap into current current political and pop culture, hold up its twisted mirror to it. I don’t have to like it, don’t […]

(The various verions of the batttlesuit have a lot of offensive capabilities, though, so i hope they reuse the sculpt and come out with a version with range and other standard powers. I’M NOT COMPLAINING. Thank you, WizKids!) Also, i forgot to post the GotGv2 preview, and can’t get to WK’s post for some reason, so here’s the character pic —
