Ant-Man prepares to size up the Red Skull this spring.
- HeroClix Avengers Assemble set coming this spring.
- 71 figures in the set, including a number of villains.
- 10 unique Avengers ID cards in select booster packs.
- Ant-Man boxed set includes colossal-sized Giant Man and five other Ant Man figures.
As if getting HeroClix Age of Ultron set and organized play for the summer wasn’t enough, there’s more Avengers goodness coming this spring. WizKids revealed details on HeroClix Avengers: Assemble, a promising series coming this spring.
Avengers Assemble is a 71-figure set showcasing the Avengers of the past, present, and future. It takes some of the most notable Avengers as well as members of Avengers Academy, the New Warriors, and Avengers: Arena and delivers them just in time for the biggest movie of the summer. I mean, the one coming out after Furious 7, of course.
To battle your standard roster of Avengers (plus a broom-wielding Jarvis!), you’ll have access to a slew of villains. And these aren’t lame cast offs. We’re talking Red Skull and Arcade, among others.
Avengers Assemble is tied into the oh-crap-can’t-wait-for-it Age of Ultron HeroClix set and game store summer event series. You can find 10 new Avengers ID Cards in the Assemble booster packs. These ID cards allow you to call in back-up for a single turn, a sort of super strike against your opponent. The Age of Ultron set also has its own set of Avengers ID cards. But it’s not like you were planning on saving your money anyway.
Along with booster packs, expect a Classic Avengers Fast Forces pack that includes Thor, Ant-Man, Cap, Hulk, Wasp and Iron Man. Oh, an a Hank Pym Avengers ID Card only available in this Fast Forces pack. Because why have any money left at all?
It all sounds great, but what’s got me really geeked is the announcement of the Marvel HeroClix: Ant-Man, the Legacy of Hank Pym boxed set. If includes six figures tied to Pym’s legacy – Hank Pym, Ant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, the Wasp, and a colossal Giant Man. Want.
