PostPosted: Mon Jul 22, 2013 7:34 pm    Post subject: Upcoming Marvel Set - Wolverine & the X-Men (Due Aug. 21st)




Most of you Heroclix fans are likely to be well-informed about this set by now, but just in case, I thought I'd recap information regarding this upcoming set, as crowd-sourced by the good folks over at HCRealms.com.

Wolverine & the X-Men will feature traditional 5-figure boosters. Additionally it will also include superboosters with team bases (similar to the recent Teen Titans set). A few weeks before the main set comes out on Aug. 21st, there will also be single foil-packs available in the familiar gravity-feed boxes.

Thematically, this set appears to be focused primarily on the various X-teams of the late 80s and 1990s, including spin-off teams like Excalibur and the New Mutants. One prominent, related subtheme will feature characters from the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, that Legion of Super-Heroes-inspired team that serve as the super-powered elite soldiers of the Shi'ar Empire, once ruled by Charles Xavier's paramour, the Empress Lilandra.

Another notable feature of the Wolverine and the X-Men Heroclix set is that it will be the first to feature the new pink powers that were recently introduced in the 2013 Powers and Abilities Card. Invincible, Empower, Sidestep, and Precision Strike will make their debut in various pieces throughout the set.






As with most recent sets, this one will include prime figures, presumably one at each of the 4 basic levels of rarity, and it will also include chase figures. From what we've seen thus far, it appears the chase figures will be the Phoenix Five from the recent A vs. X mini-series, in which Cyclops, Emma Frost, Namor, Colossus, and Magik all received a portion of the Phoenix force power.

Here is the information on the figures known thus far to be in the set:
