I know on the group that most people are looking for the newer sets, but I don't know about any collectors trying to go back and fill in.

I would be interested in trading the SR Hal Jordan from the 75th set, but a friend has first refusal.

I'm interested only in the White Lantern Kid Flash.

I struggle with this as well. I collect way more than I play, so I just want the figures, but I have a very tough time finding people to trade with. None of the local gaming stores carry singles anymore. And I refuse to buy single figures on ebay to spend $3-4 shipping each. :?

Do you have a swap meet thread? The LSH I have I plan to keep, and may try to get more. Everything else I plan to get rid of.

Me too. I don't have any interest in the game, but I love the figures (see my blog on "little men").

Let's face it, if you want to build an army of Hydra goons, this is the most inexpensive way to do it. Same for AIM. And they don't take over the entire house!

I'd love to discuss them and, maybe trade/swap some of the extras I have.

Am curious. Anyone making custom figures out of them?

I have seen custom pics in the Yahoo group I mod.

I'm a member of HCRealms, they have a pretty good trade forum.

http://www.hcrealms.com

They're a pretty decent group of people. I did a few trades WAY back in the early days of Heroclix, but I mostly lurk now that I don't play much anymore.

They have a lot of forums on different stuff including modding.

The game pretty much died here when the WizKids division was closed by Topps. It never recovered. Hammer of Thor barely made a blip. I hear rumors of games being played, but they are a drive and timing of them is bad for me.

Hammer of Thor - I'm DC. Bought 1 booster when I finally found it.
Brave and Bold - character selection was poor. Bought 2 boosters - got the Batman and Green Arrow SR. Bought a CUR set for less than 1$ each from someone on HcRealms.com. Some of these went right from the shipping box straight into storage.
Web of Spiderman - I'm DC. Did not buy any.
Blackest Night starter - set was too expensive for my tastes.
Brightest Day - again, the set is too expensive.
DC 75th - Set looks good. If I was still playing, I'd be very happy. Hard to justify after not using my Brave and Bold set. I'd buy a CUR set, same as Brave and Bold IF i was going to play. Miffed that Sinestro is an SR twice in a row.

Lord of the Rings Clix?

Interesting . . .

I keep hoping for GIJOE clix, though. That would be awesome.
