NECA, the company that owns WizKids, has made a license agreement with Sanrio, the company that owns Hello Kitty. Together, they are going to be bringing us a Hello Kitty HeroClix line.
I’ll just repeat that: there will be a Hello Kitty HeroClix line.
From the announcement: (emphasis mine)
The new Hello Kitty line will cater to long-time collectors, with action figures and statues, high-end lamps, calendars, tea sets, vintage carrying cases, and more, as well as various tabletop games, plus a HeroClix miniature gaming collection from NECA’s games subsidiary WizKids. The highly anticipated Hello Kitty products will begin launching in North America this summer.
