WizKids Previews Cheetah For HeroClix

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the "good" and "bad" side of the law. In this case, it's Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn't enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn't have a couple of their own). Anyway, she's getting a new version in this set and you can take a look at her here.

WizKids Previews The Flash For HeroClix

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they'll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of "just one character." Anyway, one (well, two of the figures, since he's got a couple versions) of the figures in the set is going to be The Flash. This is the Wally West version, for anyone curious.

WizKids Previews Captain America For HeroClix

One of the bigger announcements in comic books in the past year or so was the revelation that Captain America had always been a deep-cover Hydra agent this whole time.
Spoilers: it's not that they retconned all of Steve's backstory from the beginning. It's that Red Skull is having some fun with the Cosmic Cube and time travel. But it certainly did shake things up. Well, the "secretly a Hydra agent this whole time" version of Cap is headed to HeroClix in the Avengers/Defenders War set.

WizKids Previews Dr. Strange For HeroClix

In the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix, some of the heroes are listed as "title characters." They have special abilities tied to them called... well, "title character abilities." This allows them to gain and spend Plot Points in order to do special things on the board. Dr. Strange is one such character coming in the set.

WizKids Previews Groot For HeroClix

I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot.
I guess I could leave it at that and claim that's all the proper words for letting you know about this preview, but that wouldn't really be right. Anyway, since there's a new Guardians of the Galaxy set coming for HeroClix, they'd be remiss if they left out everyone's favorite talking (kinda) treeman.

WizKids Renews Star Trek License, Announces Future Releases

WizKids is happy to announce that they've re-signed their licensing deal with CBS for Star Trek. Considering how big a property Star Trek is, that's newsworthy in and of itself. But they've also posted up a list of new products they're going to be coming out with that license. They include more Attack Wing sets, a new Star Trek Tactics set, HeroClix figures, and even unpainted ships.

WizKids Previews The Porcupine For HeroClix

Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he's giving me a sort of "Ultimate Warrior" vibe, but without the face paint. Anyway, the villain is coming to your HeroClix games in the Avengers/Defenders War set, but you can get a look at him here.

WizKids Previews Rocket Raccoon For HeroClix

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm willing to say it's a pretty safe bet that you're thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murderous raccoon are what I, at least, think of when I think of the group. Well, with the new movie coming out, there's going to be new versions of those characters. In this preview, we get a look at what Rocket Raccoon is going to be like.

WizKids Previews Yondu For HeroClix

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he's got an arrow that he can control... psychically? Magically? I don't honestly know. But you don't want to get hit by it, that's for sure. He's making his way to your tabletops in HeroClix, and you can get a look at what he's capable of in this preview.
