Free Comic Book Day 2019 Features Heroclix and Dice Masters from WizKids

Free Comic Book Day is a yearly event taking place at local comic shops where fans are able to get free comics and limited edition items. It takes place the first Saturday in May each year and in 2019 falls on Saturday, May 4, 2019!

In years past WizKids has released items for the day from their Heroclix and Dice Masters lines of games, each having deep roots in comics. This year sees two releases.

The PX Iron Man HeroClix: Free Comic Book Day Figure from Wizkids/NECA has an enhanced paint job and effects and will include an exclusive HeroClix figure and card in a polybag with hangtag. The PX Marvel Dice Masters Promo Starter Pack includes Marvel Dice Masters: Uncanny X-Men Dice-Building Game Starter Set and Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers – Age of Ultron Starter Set.

WizKids Sponsors 2019 ROC Series

WizKids has announced that next year they’ll be sponsoring the ROC series! While many details remain to be worked out, the plan is that all maps released next year will be legal for HeroClix, that points earned under the ROC series can also be used for entry into WizKids Worlds and Nationals. The ROC Cup Championship will convert to a Worlds’ Qualifier event introducing new championship formats as players try to earn enough points to qualify for the WizKids World Championship.

Both sides hope that exclusive figures can also be made available through the series with more details to come!

It’s a trip to a classic storyline as WizKids has unveiled the Marvel HeroClix: Days of Future Past Storyline Organized Play event. The grand price is a Tri-Sentinel Colossal figure which will also be available for retail sale next year.

The figure combines the power of Sentinels Mark IV, Mark V, and Mark VI into one powerful being. The figure includes 3 faces and 6 arms and will retail for $24.99 when it’s released in January 2019.

The three month organized play event will run from July to September. Players will compete to earn Days of Future Past Wanted Poster ID cards and the one with the most points will receive the figure as a grand price.

Each Monthly OP Kit includes 3 Competitive Prize ID Cards, 10 Participation Prize ID Cards, and an instruction sheet.
