January 31, 2007 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc. announced today the release of HorrorClix™: The Lab, the first expansion for the insanely popular HorrorClix collectable miniatures game (GMG).
HorrorClix: The Lab combines bizarre creatures from across sci-fi horror worlds, including alien greys, dinosaurs, misshapen experiments and, of course, zombies! The set also features exciting new plot twist cards, victim tokens and abilities, with a total of 96 new monsters to collect, some of which can turn victims into their servants using the minion mechanic.
“Traditionally, when your monster slays a victim, the victim is simply removed from the map,” said WizKids® EVP of Sales, Marketing and Product Development, Joe Hauck. “Now you can slay the cheerleader then make her slay the world.”
HorrorClix: The Lab is available in Booster Packs (MSRP $7.99) that each contain four random figures, four matching monster cards, one plot twist card and one victim token. Each HorrorClix: The Lab case includes enough prize support for four weeks of in-store events, with an additional 12 weeks provided FREE from WizKids though Diamond Comic Distributors, Alliance Game Distributors or ordered from the WizKids retailer In-Store Play website.
