Wizkids Plans for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Heroclix
2016 will be a big year for DC Comics and Warner Bros with the release of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which brings three icons, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, together in a live action film. There’ll be a lot of tie-ins, and it should be no surprise that Wizkids will be getting in on the action with numerous releases for their miniature game Heroclix.
Scheduled to release in February, Heroclix will get a number of releases tied into both the film and comics.
For the comic related release there will be four products, a Booster Brick, a Fast Forces pack, a Dice & Token Pack and a Release Day Organized Play Kit.
DC Comics Heroclix: Superman/Batman Booster Brick is based on the classic team-up comics. The series features Superman, Batman, and many of their allies and enemies including the Metal Men, the Doom Patrol, and mystical and supernatural characters. Each booster holds five figures out of the total set of 70, which is comprised of 16 common, 16 uncommon, 16 rare, 12 super rare, 6 chase, and 4 prime figures. MSRP is $12.99 per booster, and 10 boosters are included in each Booster Brick.
The DC Comics Heroclix: Superman/Batman “World’s Finest” Fast Forces package will include six Heroclix figures plus an exclusive 3D object. The figures will be Superman, Batman, Poison Ivy, Nightwing, Toymaster, and Lex Luthor, all with new dials. The release should retail for $16.99.
