Wolverine and the X-Men HeroClix by WizKids
Wolverine and the X-Men is a set which is due out sometime next summer. The big draw is that it will focus back to the costumes of the 90′s, while the last set which featured the X-Men (Giant Sized X-Men: GSX) was geared more towards modern looks. As I was taking a break from the game when GSX came out and many pieces from GSX are expensive on the secondary market, and I am a fan of that era of the X-Men, I am looking forward to this set.
I really like the idea of a Professor X and Magneto duo figure. There is enough history to justify them working together cooperatively. Also, WizKids earlier this year added a mechanic called “split” which allows you to take a duo figure and replace it mid game with figures of each character that is on the duo. This is great here in that storywise it would represent getting to a point where these two leaders disagree and go their separate ways. The classic Colossus is also very welcome as the last version was a duo with Wolverine and a super-rare figure making it harder to get. Yeah, this is going to be a good set.
