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...

Well, we’ve seen some of the more-iconic enemies. We’ve seen the four turtles. Let’s see what WizKids has for us today. Ah, it’s Fugitoid, one of the quirky side-characters always popping in from time to time. The version here hails from the 1984 comic series. He’s quite...

Show of hands who watched the hell out of the Ninja Turtles cartoon back in the 90s. *raises hand and watches many other hands go up* Yeah, just as I figured. Well, WizKids is bringing more of those characters we loved so much in our youth to your tabletops now. We’ve seen some of the […...

We’ve had Bebop. We’ve had Rocksteady. Now it’s time to get a true villain out there. The original baddie that the Turtles were trained by Splinter to fight against is a walking cutlery isle. It’s time to take a look at the Shredder....

I wanna roooock… steaaaaaady. Steady-rockin’ all night long. Ok, not really the same thing, but maybe I got a song stuck in 1-2 of your heads (if so, mission accomplished). The other day, we got a look at Bebop for the upcoming Heroes in a Half Shell set for HeroClix. And where Bebop goes...

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,...

Today we’ve got another of those champion-inspired previews for HeroClix. This time we get a look at the devil, Mephisto, with stats created by Paris Gordon. Mephisto certainly has had quite a history with Spider-Man. Just ask Linkara what he thinks about all of it, too. I’m sure you̵...

There are several game companies out there that, for their highest-level tournaments, give the winners a chance to work with the design team for the game and create new figures to be part of the line. That’s just such a figure we get a preview of today that’s going to be part of the Super...

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...

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 […]...

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...

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...
