I am starting this thread to contain all the info regarding the Marvel Heroclix expansion for August 2010*, Web of Spider-Man.
Before we had this sparkly new section on our forums for Heroclix, we posted a thread featuring the promotional poster for the set. You can find it here:
Here is what we know about the set thus far:
The set's primary theme is Spider-Man, his allies, and his enemies. It will also feature characters from Dark Reign.
Confirmed to be in the set at this point:
1. Norman Osborn
2. Green Goblin
3. Iron Patriot
4. Red Hulk
6. Dr. Octopus
7. Wolverine (standard yellow costume)
8. Wolverine (black X-Force costume)
11. Black Cat
13. Venom (I know we JUST got him in the last Marvel set, but here he is again!)
15. Iron Man & War Machine (duo fig)
> Doctor Octopus is supposed to have some amazing special 4-armed attack ability.
> There will be 40 characters from the set that have never been made in Heroclix before. I assume that a Norman Osborn out of costume and an Iron Patriot count, but not Green Goblin.
> There will be a new web-shooting mechanic. I've no idea what that means.
> It has been mentioned that the army-building options from the last two sets will be carried forward, so there will be some kind of generics. Whether or not they use the REV-style system we saw in Brave & the Bold, we do not know.
> The Buy-It-By-the-Brick figure will be Spider-Man as portrayed on the cover of Amazing Fantasy #15, his first appearance, drawn by Jack Kirby. It will show him swinging past a building carrying a thug. Look at the poster. It looks cool.
> The Spidey-theme promises characters from his earliest appearances to more modern characters, both popular and obscure.
I'll keep posting more info as I get it. Don't forget to let us know at the store if you want us to preorder a brick or a case.
* - The original Aug. release has been pushed back to Sept. 9.
