This week the gang at Wizkids are getting a little too big for their britches. And by big, I mean GIANT. They are at long last raising the curtain on their Giant Sized X-Men super-boosters and they have asked AFi to help.
This week there will be a series of three reveals leading up to the debut of the entire super-booster line up. Yesterday our friends at Newsarama.com revealed the Apocalypse super-booster, today we get to do the BIG reveal (below) and tomorrow there will be one more reveal on Figures.com. Then, come back here to AFi at 12:01am on Thursday 17th and see our feature on the complete super-booster line up. We will give you your first look at all of the new super-boosters in the Giant Sized X-men set.
That’s not all! You will also have a chance not only to win one of four of these Sentinel Mark V super-boosters, but you will also have a chance to win a full SET of the super boosters! Details on Thursday!
Enough chatter! Now onto the big reveal!
The Sentinel Mark V!
The Wizkids team have done an incredible job on these super-boosters. I’m only allowed to talk about this one today, but as you will see on Thursday they have really raised the bar on the entire set. The sculpt is dynamite and captures a moment where the Sentinel has frozen Cannonball in mid-attack.
What’s that you say? You don’t want your Sentinel Mark V attacking Cannonball every time you use him? Well, Wizkids thought of that too and include a swappable fist so he’s ready to take on all opponents!
The Sentinel Mark V comes with the two hands (frigi-blast and fist), his dial and an info card explaining his moves, powers and abilities.
Aw, heck! Let’s go ahead and give one of these away today. Here’s what you need to do to win-
Just tweet the following:
@AFInsider debuts @wizkidsgames new #Heroclix Sentinel mk V from #GiantSizedXmen http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/?p=26251
Just copy the above line and paste it in your tweet and you will be entered to win a Mark V Super-Booster!
Naturally you will need to be signed up for Twitter to enter, and you also need to be following @AFinsider. Just one Tweet per account. You have until midnight tonight (PST) to tweet this. A winner will be chosen at random and you will be contacted tomorrow for your contact information. US residents only please.
