Who gots some? I picked up my starter set today, and I must say, it's perhaps the coolest game idea I've ever seen.

My set came with

Rookie Wolverine
Rookie SHIELD Agent
Experienced Jean Grey
Experienced Wasp
Experienced Blizzard
Experienced Juggernaut
Experienced Firelord
Unique Nightmare

I'm going back tomorrow to grab some more figures. I'll tell you how my first game went out.

My team: Wolverine - Jean - Wasp - Blizzard
My sister: Nightmare
My brother: Firelord - SHIELD Agent

I had the big team full of weaklings. We were in the shopping mall setup. I manipulated Nightmare into taking out the SHIELD Agent, and began clobbering both him and Firelord long range with clutter lifted by telekenesis. Blizzard and Wasp took heavy hits, but after Jean pegegd Firelord down some, Blizzard was able to get some shots in. Wasp was KO'd. I kept Wolverine hiding in the bushes, due to his Stealth power, and Jean out of everybody's range, pelting them with stuff until it was all gone.

Firelord was flying too high, and out of my range. So, I told my sister the plan. I'd let Firelord take out Blizzard, while the rest of us hide in the mall. After he defeated Blizzard, he was forced to enter the mall if he wanted to win. So he did, but this dragged him into my range. Quickly, I used the last two objects to slam Nightmare and Firelord, weakening them. Then, Wolverine came into play, taking out Nightmare, and then Wolverine and Jean mobbed Firelord, escaping without a scratch.


A beautiful game, and the most fun I've had in the Marvel Universe since the X-Men Xavier's Under Siege board game.
 
Well, I can't use my figurine credit on the store, because the Heroclix haven't shown up in price guides. So I grabbed a booster pack.

My new guys:

Veteran Hercules
Veteran Annihilus
Veteran Skrull Warrior
Rookie Blizzard

I had another battle, this time one on one against my brother. 300 point max. value.

My Team: Annihilus - Wolverine - Juggernaut - Skrull Warrior
His Team: Jean Grey - Blizzard (Ex.) - Firelord - Wasp - SHIELD Agent - Hercules

The Battle: Outdoors street setting. The Battle began simple enough, I streamed off of the purple rooftop, and he swarmed the streets. He set himself up, Hercules grabbing hold of a desktop, Jean Grey setting herself up to telekenetically manipulate a forklift. But... he set himself up bad. Juggernaut, who is technically invulnerable, negated Herc's weapon, and clobbered him one. Annihilus, who can blast three guys at once, nailed Blizzard, Wasp, and Jean, while Wolverine took it easy hiding in the bushes, scoping the fight. The Combo of Annihilus and Skrull took out Wasp, Jean, and Blizzard, while Herc smashed the Skrull into oblivion. The SHIELD Agent hid on the far side of the board. Bad idea. Juggernaut kept at Hercules, hiding on the other side of him to stay away from Firelord's blasts. Heavy projectiles took Firelord down enough for Wolverine to cut him down, after nailing the SHIELD Agent. Then, it was a simple matter of Juggernaut and Wolverine pelting Hercules. Game over.


God, I love this game!
 
Hey Cyke... I play MtG... but I don't know this game... is it a card game like MtG? The MARVEL site has more info, I guess?

THANKS Spider-Gamer! Thats very helpful! :D

I was reading through that web site... very cool looking game... I think I may get the big set for my son and I to play when we go to the beach in a few weeks! :cool:
 
I collect them!:)
I like them. I have a lot of them including an Experienced Spider-Man!:D
 
I can't wait 'till they release Sentinel... good Lord, he's nearly seven inches tall, and a fully playable Heroclix character... :eek:

Then there'll be Outdoors and Indoors sets, with 3D objects and extra maps to play upon... Good Lord, why was this stuff never done with Marvel Heroes before?

The only problem was so many great characters were completely ignored... Iron Man... Storm... Abomination... The Leader... Venom... Dr. Doom... Thor... Loki... Silver Surfer... Ghost Rider...

The obscure characters, like Blizzard, Whirlwind, Mr. Hyde, etc. are definitely appreciated, but why so few heavy hitters?

Oh well. Series two, right?
 
I'd buy a set, but I'd probably be hard pressed to find someone to play with, because I'm the ONLY True Believer I know, but, hell, I'll probably buy one anyways, just because those figurines are really friggin' cool.
 
I would love to find another collector to play with, because the game is amazing!

I played my sister again today, so I'll give ya the lowdown.

My team: Annihilus - Juggernaut - Blizzard (Ex.) - Wolverine - SHIELD Agent

My sister: Nightmare - Hercules - Skrull Warrior - Wasp - Jean Grey

The Sitch: My toughest battle yet, in the shopping mall setting. The battle began with me desperately filing out of a small room, with my sister beginning in the main floor. Bringing Annihilus out, I try to nail the Skrull, but he shapeshifts away. I keep Blizzard and SHIELD together, due to SHIELD's +1 projectile bonus, blasting others away. She brings Hercules in to deal with Annihilus, and we begin trading punches. I've got an edge, because Annihilus is Invulnerable, but Hercules is only Tough. Plus, Annihilus is able to hit several people at once. Herc can only focus on Annihilus. Skrull falls soon enough, and Nightmare slips away to deal with Juggernaut. The fight goes in Nightmare's favor, but for some reason he flees the scene. Bad move. He could have had Juggernaut on the ropes. Now he's only Tough instead of Invulnerable, and is able to be damaged by Blizzard and Annihilus. Blizzard takes a critical hit from Jean, getting struck with a file cabinet, and his power is immensely weakened. Annihilus proceeds to defeat Hercules, but barely escaping. Wolverine, the whole time was holding off until he could come into play. Juggernaut finally smacks Nightmare out of Toughness, and Wolverine comes out, taking Nightmare down with a whopping six roll on Claws/Fangs/Blades power. Wasp falls in a double shot from Annihilus to her and Jean, which was unsuccesful to Jean. She harasses me with Jean, taking Annihilus and Wolverine down, but Juggernaut closes in for the kill.


So what do you have, Gamer? How many pieces you got, and what characters?

Hey truth, yeah, comic shops and bookstores SHOULD have them. In fact, comic shops are the most likely. Me and Cyke picked ours up at a local Mall gaming store, so, shop around I guess.... :D
