This February 2007, HeroClix players will choose sides in the Marvel HeroClix Civil War tournament between Captain America’s rebellion forces and Iron Man’s pro-government army.
Each player will build a 300-point army, which must include either 1 Captain America or 1 Iron Man sculpt. Then the battle begins! This tournament can be run in conjunction with previously scheduled HeroClix events in February. It is permissible to construct an army from sealed boosters, as long as the above restrictions are met.
Retailers who run and report the Marvel HeroClix Civil War event can win an exclusive “Stark Industries Game Table” from Gale Force 9, a full set of Supernova’s Marvel Zombies and more great prizes! 8 runner-up retailers will win Marvel Zombies and HeroClix Limited Edition figures. To qualify, retailers must run and report the event by February 21, 2007, the street date of Marvel Comic’s Civil War #7, and the conclusion to the storyline that’s shaking up the Marvel Universe!

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
