Where would The Shredder be without his faithful assistant and henchman, Bebop? … … … Probably a lot closer to actually completing his plans of defeating the Turtles and world domination, actually. But that’s beside the point. The Shredder’s Return set for HeroClix will ...

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay! Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Mo...

*guitar riff* I am Iron Man! *more guitar* While I wouldn’t say that you have to play Black Sabbath when you get your Iron Man & War Machine starter set for Dice Masters next month, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do it, either. If you’re interested in taking a look at w...

Dice Masters isn’t the only game getting a Ninja Turtles expansion soon. HeroClix will be getting their 3rd mutant-themed set when Shredder’s Return comes out. And what would fighting against Shredder be without fighting against Foot Soldiers? Nothing, that’s what. Well, the new set...

The characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world have gone through dozens of iterations since their initial comic release. Sometimes they’ve been a bit more dark and gritty. Other times they’ve been more lighthearted and kid-friendly. So just saying, “Ninja Turtles” ca...

Munchkin is one of those games that I think it’s safe to say that most of us have played at some point. I know I have, actually playing a whole bunch of the different versions. It’s those different versions that make the game rather fun. Well, a new version is out, of sorts, that you [&he...

Hard to believe that Knight Models has been making their Batman Miniatures Game for five years now. Their stunning line of figures has long been sought after by collectors, but when they put some rules to them, all of you gamers out there jumped at them as well. Now, Knight Models is running special ...

Ok, so, what would happen if you mixed the power of the Red Hulk, added in the symbiotic might of Venom, and threw in a dash of Biblical vengeance from Ghost Rider? Well, you’d get the Spirit of Vengeance Red Hulk. Yes, it happened (comics are weird) and it’s coming to your tabletops for ...

Comic writers love to give us alternate versions of the characters we love. With the multiple universes that they create, you can get all different types of characters, letting you explore them from different angles and under different circumstances. One such alternate universe is Earth X, where we g...

As we saw in the previous preview from WizKids about their upcoming Convention Exclusives for HeroClix, Pym Particles can be used to make things smaller, or they can be used to make things much, much bigger. That doesn’t just include Hank Pym, himself, but various objects as well, including tan...

Pym particles are mostly known for shrinking you down in size. However, with the right application, they can also cause things to grow to gigantic size. As such, Ant-Man can also become Giant-Man. WizKids is going to have a limited-edition version of Giant-Man at their WizKids Winter Open and wanted ...

Friday night is pizza night. It always has been for me as long as I can remember. I’m planning on having pizza tonight, in fact. So the idea of a pizza-monster attacking me seems like something out of my nightmares. Well, that’s just what can happen in HeroClix. In their continuing look a...

A lot of really strange things can happen in the comics. Alternate-timelines and other dimensions can create situations where heroes are much different than their more-well-known styles. Sometimes, those characters don’t quite seem like something that would go into a HeroClix set. Thankfully, w...

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and si...

Well, I figured out why it’s cold (y’know, for Atlanta, at least). It’s not because it’s getting to be winter. No, that’s silly. It’s because Knight Models has a new Mr. Freeze gang and extras available for the Batman Miniatures Game! Ok, so maybe it’s actual...

The Gold Age of Comics bagan back in 1938. Many of the foundations of what we think of now as “superheroes” were laid out. You’ve got early comics like Superman throwing around that car and Captain America punching out Hitler. Well, combine that with Champions, one of the most well-...

One of the more iconic villains in the Batman universe is The Penguin. Oswald Cobblepot always wanted to be high society. He certainly always saw himself that way, no matter what situation he found himself in. And in lieu of any humans to hang around with, or even avian friends, he’d build his ...
