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 […]...

Some of you may end up at an Uncanny X-Men HeroClix set preview event tomorrow. So you may be ripping into boxes and checking out all of the new figures. And then, of course, playing against others as you all try and figure out what all those minis can do. Well, to help a bit, […]...

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...

While it bounces back and forth between Marvel and DC on a very regular basis, it’s important to not forget that HeroClix is open to any IP that WizKids can get (I’m still saddened that the Hello Kitty set apparently never materialized, just because of how funny that would have been). Wel...

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 ...

So, I’ve always been more of a Marvel-reader than DC. I got involved with X-Men and X-Factor pretty early on, and since then, though I no longer read comics, Marvel has always just been the one I’ve been more interested in. So when I see that there’s a Superman Red and Superman Blue...

Gamers often feel they need to be the first ones with the new toys on the block. I joke about it from time to time with pre-release announcements, but considering I’ve read more than my fair share of messages on Kickstarters that are, “But why did THEY get the game before I did!?!?!”...

One of the things that WizKids is doing with their new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set for HeroClix is, beyond just the common, uncommon, rare, super-rare, chase, and alternate figures, is randomly inserting pieces of the Hulkbuster MkII armor into booster packs. It’s like if you’ve ever gotte...
