The first couple days went by slowly, but since then, at least for me, the week’s felt like it’s picked up steam and we’re rushing our way towards the weekend. I know I could use some relaxation time, and I just lined up a day of gaming on Saturday. So that should be good. Hopefully...

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 ...

Characters in comic books tend to go through phases and changes. Sure, the rough idea of the character might be the same, but there’s a lot of specifics that can change. As such, HeroClix figures will come in different versions to show off these different types of character changes. So while th...

The Joker’s Wild set for HeroClix will be out soon. It’s always nice to know what you’re gonna be getting before you get it. As such, WizKids tends to give us lots of looks inside their sets. This is no different, with a look at not just one, but two versions of Looker....

Just today, it is kind of a cooler and blustery day here in Atlanta. Seems we might make a run at having some autumn after all. Either that, or Mr. Freeze is coming through town. At the very least, he’s making a visit to your computer screens now, as WizKids has posted up a new […]...

Time goes by… so slowly… Time goes by… so slowly… Not exactly what I’m listening to right now, but I could be, with how this week is puttering along. What I need is the ability to control time. Yeah, that’d be cool. Or I could just go to sleep. Either way, those fi...

It would seem that the Joker’s Wild set coming out for HeroClix has another group that will be partaking in the action. The Court of Owls aren’t going to let the Joker or The Flash have all the fun running around the streets of Gotham. WizKids gives us a look at Talon, as well as [&hellip...

Seems the Rat King went through some cosmetic changes between when I used to watch the Ninja Turtles cartoon and the 2011 comic series. This one also seems a lot more competent and menacing than what I remember. And he’ll be making his way to your tabletops in the Heroes in a Half Shell set [&h...

While the very first Ninja Turtles comic was meant to be rather dark and gritty, subsequent comic books about the group tended to be a bit more brightly colored. But I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising with Gallagher involved with things. Lord knows plenty of turtles got experimented on in...

Those of us that only know the Ninja Turtles through the cartoon from the 80s might think that the Shredder was the supreme leader of the Foot Clan (and that said clan was made up entirely of robots). Such was very much not the case for the comic series. There were many in charge of […]...

I mentioned in the previous post how time seems to be flying by this week. Well, for Renet Tilley, time’s always flying by. But that’s ok, because with her Scepter of the Sands of Time, she can go whenever she needs. It’s like that old chant, “What do we want!?” “T...

Some of you might remember the shipping strike that happened a year or so ago and how that caused a ripple effect through much of gaming, as company’s had their containers stuck at the docks on ships while it all got sorted out. This year, we’ve got something not exactly the same, but the...

No, WizKids isn’t doing a Guns ‘N Roses set for Heroclix… though that’d be friggin’ awesome! Anyway, this preview is from the cartoon show. No, not the one I used to watch as a kid. Those were some of the previous previews. This time around it’s the 2012 animated s...

WizKids isn’t satisfied with just one set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix. They’ve been working on a second set, of which they’ve just started showing off previews. To begin, we get a look at one of the Turtles’ regular foes. He’s the gang member-turned-warthog,...

Not every piece in the Superior Foes of Spider-Man set for HeroClix is, in fact, a foe of Spider-Man. Some are regularly seen fighting against the same villains as Spider-Man. Take these two… err… one… err.. two… Why the confusion? Because Power Man and Iron Fist is two figure...

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...
