AlphaFlight.net - New Alpha Flight Heroclix In November
  • New Alpha Flight HeroClix In November *UPDATED*

    Over on the HeroClix Realms forum they've posted that the latest Game Trade Magazine has an advert for The Invincible Iron Man HeroClix set which according to the advert features allies from Alpha Flight.
    While no other details have been released from WizKids we'll make sure to keep you as up to date as we can!

    UPDATE -
    The following advertising images have been released for the set, the first one shows Alpha Flight characters on the box packaging (finally including a HeroClix of Northstar in his classic costume), the second showing an actual Clix of Sasquatch:

      There's tiny comic book figures that an artist made and sold at fan conventions here in Toronto. He didn't bring his Alpha Flight ones to Toronto Comicon, but he will be bringing them to Toronto Fan Expo in August. I'm excited I'm going as Iron Fist this year, but next year I'll try to go as a member of Alpha Flight.

      Looks like Guardian, Puck and Aurora too above Northstar. Nice!

      It's really taken this long for JP's classic costume? That's a little weird.

      But, hey, it's happening now. And, I notice, all the pics that weren't Iron Man were Alpha!

      I really like the way they did Guardian; using his shield effect to make him 'fly'.

      So if I want Guardian I have to buy:
      14 Common Figures (plus one Prime figure!)
      13 Uncommon Figures (plus one Prime figure!)
      12 Rare Figures (plus one Prime figure!)
      11 Super-Rare Figures (plus one Prime figure!)
      6 Thematic Chase Figures
      and
      Nine (9) Limited Edition figures. Three copies each of three different figures.

      but all of the toys are sealed in foil in a gravity feed box so there's no way of knowing which one you'll get? I can't understand this. Can I walk into my LCS and ask for just a Guardian Heroclix and a Puck Heroclix?

      If you want to buy it from your LCS it is random; sealed within packs in each box much like packs of stickers/pogs etc. growing up.

      The best way is to order the individual figures from an online retailer/ebay.

      Absolutely you can.
      It probably won't work, but you can do it.

      I agree with Phil.
      There was a place around here once where they sold them individually, unpacketed. But that was a long time ago.

      Maybe we'll get an X-Club Madison Jeffries in the newly announced Avengers Vs X-Men set.

      Shaman has been (unsurprisingly) confirmed for the IM set in the latest Game Trade magazine (#163) No scans online yet though.

      Much the same as the last one really...

      Still, nicely done, the way they use the magic powers to make it look like he's floating.

      Is that Death Metal?!?
