WIZKIDS REVEALS HEROCLIX TABAPP™ AND MARVEL FIGURE LAUNCH DATES

Hillside, N.J. & Cary, N.C.—September 17, 2012—WizKids Games today announced the release date for HeroClix TabApp, the much anticipated addition to the HeroClix franchise. An extension of the HeroClix brand, HeroClix TabApp™ is an interactive toy, which combines physical toy miniature figures with digital gameplay designed for the iPad. The free application is set to launch September 23 and will be available initially at Toys “R” Us.

“We’re thrilled by the positive response and excitement from the community surrounding HeroClix TabApp™,” said Justin Ziran, President of WizKids Games. “We can’t wait to end the anticipation with the debut of our Marvel figures at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide.”

HeroClix TabApp™ Marvel figures will be available in packs of three priced at $14.99 USD each. The first Marvel Super Heroes pack, available September 23, includes Avengers favorites Iron Man, Thor and Captain America figures. The Wolverine and the X-Men pack, available September 30, includes Wolverine, Cyclops and Iceman figures.

All HeroClix TabApp™ figures have HeroClix dials; so in addition to using the figures with the iPad, the figures can also be used without the iPad in physical HeroClix tabletop matches. Each figure pack also contains cards for use in the tabletop game and free codes for their digital counterparts in HeroClix Online.

HeroClix TabApp™ is the ultimate portable HeroClix play experience. Utilizing figure recognition technology, HeroClix TabApp™ combines physical HeroClix miniatures with your iPad and offers exciting combat experiences in detailed virtual arenas.

Daniel Pickett
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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
