Wizkids has released some more information, including a release date for the new DC expansion set The Brave and the Bold. Read the details below and be sure to scroll for an exclusive look at the new Brainiac and Flash/Green Lantern figures.
WizKids has announced the April 14 release of DC HeroClix: The Brave and The Bold expansion. This set includes 55 pre-painted miniatures, including numerous famous Duo team-ups–both heroes and villains from the pages of DC Comic. The Brave and The Bold is sold in 5-figure boosters which retail at $11.99.
In addition to DC fan-favorites, like Brainiac and duo figures like ‘The Atom and Hawkman’, ‘Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy’ and ‘The Flash and Green Lantern’, The Brave and The Bold includes all-new Alter Ego figures. Alter Egos allow players to start the game with a hero in his or her secret identity–like Clark Kent, then at a critical moment change the figure into the hero in costume–Superman.
NECA, which acquired WizKids in September, is planning to ship its first DC HeroClix product, The Brave and the Bold, in February of 2010. The expansion will add 55 superhero and supervillain characters to the game including 25 characters who have never appeared in the DC HeroClix CMG releases before.
In the fall out of Topps announcing the end of the WizKids Games two former employees formed a new company Pinata Games to acquire the highly sought after Heroclix portion of the business. Brand Manager Jake Theis and Director of Brand Management and Marketing Justin Ziran, supported by a Save HeroClix movement centered around HeroClix fan sites, are seeking investment and other support for their new company and its efforts to acquire the brand. A SaveHeroClix.com Website is up and operational as the current center for the new company’s activities.
