Offer a Seat at the 2013 HeroClix Worlds Event

Developers of HeroClix Online today announced a new six-week tournament series titled ‘War of the Shards’ in which one lucky hero will receive an invitation to this year’s HeroClix World event, to be held at Gen Con 2013 in Indianapolis, IN August 15-18.

Each week of the event will feature a new Themed tournament based on an Infinity Gem from the Infinity Gauntlet—and each week gives players more chances to increase their overall scores.

The goal for participants is to collect as many Gem Shards (through tournament wins) from as many different Infinity Gems as they can.  At the end of the series HeroClix Online will be inviting one lucky hero to HeroClix Worlds and offering them a physical 2013 Marvel con exclusive figure of their choice. Second Place will also receive a 2013 Marvel con exclusive figure and all participants will be entered in a random drawing for the physical Thanos figure.

Following the event Gem Shards can be used in casual matches as obstacles for, or to attack, opponents.

The full announcement, rules and regulations can be found on the HeroClix Online forums.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
