Who knew one guy could have so many enemies? Spider-Man seems so unassuming and likeable that it seems crazy that so many are out for his blood. But that’s super-villains for you, I guess. And the next one being previewed for the Superior Foes of Spider-Man set for HeroClix is a pretty nasty on...

Comics are weird. And let’s face it, the concept for some of the heroes and villains can be… a touch… silly. At least on first inspection. So, having an arch-nemesis named Stilt-Man, who runs around town in a giant robotic suit with huge stilts for legs… Eh. Maybe it’s j...

Water, water everywhere. Hydro-Man must be visiting. The man with the power to turn into and control water is next up in line to be previewed for the upcoming Superior Foes of Spider-Man set for HeroClix. So, you might want to get out your hip-waders… Or maybe your full scuba suit....

Though the pre-release events might not be happening, that doesn’t mean that they’re not showing off previews for the upcoming set. This time around we get two opposite ends of the symbiote spectrum. On one hand, you’ve got Venom, who’s all about taking big bites out of whomev...

Well, this isn’t the happiest of news stories. WizKids has announced that they’re having to cancel their Superior Foes of Spider-Man pre-release events (you know, like how we just had that Carnage preview the other day?). The reason for the cancellation is because of a train wreck. As in,...

WizKids is coming out with a new Marvel HeroClix set. The figure here’s part of a 5-figure booster that will be coming out in August, but there will be pre-release events at the end of July. We’re also getting a new card layout, it looks like, for the figures. They’re adding in a ch...

Well, everyone, today’s the day you can start going out and getting your Civil War HeroClix action on. … Uh, that’s Marvel’s Civil War, that is. There’s no Sherman or Lee or Grant in this set (though, now that I think about it, that’d be pretty cool). WizKids has a...

One of the most iconic images from the Civil War storyline in the comics was the cover of #7 where you’ve got Cap holding his shield up against the repulsor blasts from Iron Man. It’s obvious the two have been in quite a scrap. Well, now you can recreate that scene on your tabletops with ...

Well, raise your hands if you went and saw Civil War over the weekend. You’d think it were 1862 with how much people are talking about Civil War. That’s a history joke. Anyway, seeing as just about everything I know of that’s Marvel-related is doing Civil War-related stuff, WizKids ...

We’re just a few, short days from the release of the Uncanny X-Men set for HeroClix. We’ve gotten a bunch of previews of various models that will be in the set. But WizKids is really good about giving people more than one way to get into the new sets. One way is the Fast Forces […]...

And back we go to the Marvel side of things for HeroClix (I almost said “mutants side of thing” and then remembered the other preview set being shown lately, y’know, has “mutant” in the title). This time around it’s one of the most well-known characters in the Marv...

While Shredder might be the first major villain people think of when they think of the Ninja Turtles, Krang is usually just behind. I mean, Krang was a talking brain with pointy teeth running around in a giant robot suit (though many of us, I’m sure, remember his little chicken-legged walker, t...

Knight Models aren’t the only guys with a superhero game around. WizKids has the long-running HeroClix Game. You know, I’ve not read comics for a very long time and I never collected all that many when I did. So it’s pretty rare that a comic that I owned shows up on one of these sta...

The Ninja Turtles have gone on a lot of adventures across a lot of different media. They started as a comic book, then there was the first cartoon, then video games, some movies, then more cartoons, and more comics, and just seemingly everything else in-between. They have a lot of allies and villains...

Just because we got that one preview for the upcoming X-Men set doesn’t mean that we’re done seeing figures from the TMNT set for HeroClix. Oh no. There’s still more to be had, the next one of which is the Rat King. I remember having the toy as a kid....

It’s pretty amazing. We keep getting these previews for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set for HeroClix, but all I can think of, whenever I see a new figure, are the old toys I used to have. Even Fugitoid, a character I don’t ever really remember from the old cartoon, but I did...

The previews of the allies that tend to pal around with the Ninja Turtles continues. There really were a whole group of them, when you stop to think about it. One of my personal favorites was the hockey-mask-wearing, baseball-bat swinging, vigilante that is Casey Jones. Of course he’d be gettin...

We all know about the Turtles, but the TMNT universe is filled with a whole cast of other, unique characters (that I more-than-likely had the toys for back when I was a kid). One of which was Baxter Stockman. Originally a scientist, he went all Jeff Goldblum on us and turned into a fly. Today [&helli...

Yes, Ivys, since there’s a couple of them. Comic book characters do, indeed, change over time. Though it may seem that they don’t, they certainly grow and change, gaining and losing powers, joining and leaving teams, acquiring and leaving love interests. The World’s Finest set will ...
