to some great sneak peeks from WizKids, www.wizkidsgames.com
and someone who was at MegaCon with a camera www.hcrealms.com
, I now can reveal a lot more figures in the upcoming HeroClix: Xplosion
expansion, available March 25th at your favorite Edge location!
We already knew about the Savage Hulk, coming in at 201 points,
but how about a Spidey that has super strength? it's about time!
You will also be able to get Iron Man, who looks to be a real
Swiss Army knife of abilities, with everything from Super strength to
regeneration. And what would Iron Man be without the Mandarin,
who will have a shot range of 12! That is NOT a typo, he will be able to
shoot from 12 squares away. Evil. Crimson Dynamo is in there too,
and he looks like he'll be able to give Ol' Shellhead a run for his
money in the powers department, too. Toss in a new Daredevil,
this time with leap/Climb, and an absolute beast of an Elektra
(163 points), with Mind Control of 2 targets, to build off the hype of
the recently released movie.
For you X fans, you'll find a Storm, Psylocke, Iceman, Phoenix,
Colossus, Beast, Gambit, Wolverine as Weapon X,
and Shadowcat. Building an ultimate X-man team just got a lot
more interesting, didn't it?
Some others in this set will be Typhoid Mary, Scorpion, Madame
Masque, Mystique, The Abomination, Deathbird, Apocalypse,
The Leader, and a host of Con Artists and Hand
Ninjas' to round out your teams. And that isn't even all the
figures. There will be a few more surprises to come, so stay tuned.
So keep marking the days off the calendar, and keep saving those pennies
up, because the 25th is coming soon, and there will be an Xplosion at
the Edge stores. be there for it! As always, comments, critiques, or
questions are encouraged and can be sent to me at eMail
If you would like to learn how to play this game, please email me and we
will set something up at a local Edge location for one on one or another
Demo. hear that Bossman? I am also still waiting for my first
challenger....Rog-man...are YOU man enough?
