Wolverine and the X-Men HeroClix by WizKids

Wolverine and the X-Men HeroClix by WizKids

Wolverine and the X-Men is a set which is due out sometime next summer.  The big draw is that it will focus back to the costumes of the 90’s, while the last set which featured the X-Men (Giant Sized X-Men: GSX) was geared more towards modern looks.  As I was taking a break from the game when GSX came out and many pieces from GSX are expensive on the secondary market, and I am a fan of that era of the X-Men, I am looking forward to this set.

I really like the idea of a Professor X and Magneto duo figure.  There is enough history to justify them working together cooperatively.  Also, WizKids earlier this year added a mechanic called “split” which allows you to take a duo figure and replace it mid game with figures of each character that is on the duo.  This is great here in that storywise it would represent getting to a point where these two leaders disagree and go their separate ways.  The classic Colossus is also very welcome as the last version was a duo with Wolverine and a super-rare figure making it harder to get.  Yeah, this is going to be a good set.

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.
