December 6, 2007 (SEATTLE) — WizKidsInc. announces the “WizKids® Convention Weekend,” which brings WizKids free-with-purchase convention giveaways to local hobby and game stores!
From February 1 to February 3, 2008,WizKids fans can get those hard-to-find WizKids giveaways — such as the Mighty Thor™, BATMAN and Vlad the Impaler — for the first time ever outside of a 2007 WizKids convention! And because fans demanded it,WizKids is introducing the all-new Classic Fin Fang Foom™ colossal figure.
“There were so many great game conventions in 2007 that we couldn’t possibly attend them all,” said Joe Hauck, WizKids EVP of Sales, Marketing and Product Development. “For WizKids fans who couldn’t make it to one of the conventions we attended in 2007, we wanted to give them a chance to get those convention giveaways they couldn’t get anywhere else. And especially for these fans, we’ve produced a limited edition ‘purple pants’ version of the 2007 Fin Fang Foom colossal figure.”
The WizKids Convention Weekend will only be happening at local hobby and gaming stores, so don’t miss this opportunity! To find a store near you that is hosting the WizKids Convention Weekend, visit www.wizkidsgames.com. Contact your local store for details.
