Heroclix Unboxed

WizKids has posted a new video on their YouTube account which shows the opening of two bricks (cases) of the Flash Heroclix set. It’s pretty amazing because it gives us our first looks at some of the figures, and is also the first confirmation of some of the figures’ existence. We now know that the Rival, XS, Tornado Twins, the first Trickster, and Dr Alchemy will be in the set, for example. And some of the Heroclix (such as Tar Pit, Zoom, and others) had only been seen before in a single blurry photo. The video is about twenty minutes long, but is well worth watching.

The first part of the set will be released on October 22, and the rest will become available in mid-November. I’m really looking forward to it!
