Erik "Superfriend" Skov
"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.

JusticeLeague_Dark1-500x300.jpg As frequent readers know, I’ve posted a bunch of stuff about WizKids HeroClix gaming miniatures figures and the game itself. It might be a safe bet to guess that I like the miniatures and the game. And you would be right. But I have a complaint about an upcoming product that I wanted to share….

101_6367-500x374.jpg One of the amazing things about WizKids HeroClix is the ever increasing variety of teams/armies you can make to play against your friends (or opponents in tournaments).  The NECA/WizKids gallery does a good job of showing the packaging, but does a poor job of showing the potential of the game.  To add to what they…

DC just announced that 6 of its titles are being replaced with 6 new ones.  Two of these, I had tried and dropped.  Partially because the story did not stick with me.  I like the characters enough, but I am also feeling the sting of needing to be frugal.  Due to money issues, I dropped…

smiley-laughing.gif Ryan, our fellow blogger, inspired me twice in the creation of this blog.  First, I wanted to show how easy it is to write a blog.  Second, he posted in the forums about something that made me want to respond.  I could have responded in the thread, but since Julius gave me this soapbox (and…

SpidermanDial1.jpg Someone once asked me to explain HeroClix.  After some practice, I have come up with this. “Its like Chess with Super-Heroes, except that if you want to play with 4 knights and no bishops, that is not only OK, it is encouraged and expected.”  At this point, I should add that you can also use…

Skrulls-500x300.jpg For day 11 of WizKids Clix-mas, we have the Skrulls in many forms.  As they should be… And from prior this week, Mole Men and Things! Who knows what tomorrow will bring.  A dozen ???

Nazgul-500x300.jpg Continuing their 12 Days of Clix-mas, today WizKids brings us: But that is not all.  Those sneaky guys could not resist giving us a bonus.  A sneak peak of the Movie Avengers!

InfinityGauntlet-500x300.jpg Once again our friends at NECA are rolling out previews of upcoming product.  I popped out to their Facebook page and found these beauties.  12 days of previews.  Here are two to wet your appetite. And from a set I did not even know was coming: Merry Clix-mas to all my fellow Clix-ers!

GLSinestro1.jpg DC Direct was kind of cagey about the look of the Sinestro figure coming in Green Lantern wave 5.  When the new DC universe was revealed, we knew why.  Sinestro was a Green Lantern again.  But for some reason, the pictures of the figure never made it out to the news pages.  To rectify that,…

YJRev-1-500x281.png I missed this week”s episode of Young Justice, but two weeks ago, they ran one that blew my mind. Why?  Because of all the characters that made an appearance in the episode “Revelaqtion”.   I think at this point, enough time has passed that I can write this without spoilers. #1. The Secret Society of Super…

NYCC_JLAHawkman1.jpg While I was at NYCC, I spent some time at the DC Direct booth asking questions about their upcoming product.  Here is my brief interview with them. 1. What is new at today’s show? a) Hawkman: JLA figure. b) Hawkgirl II: Ami-Comi statue. c) Joker: Batman Black and White statue. d) Joker: Arkham City figure….
