DC HeroClix The Brave and The Bold Update

The HeroClix team skipped the Blackest Night Starter Kit update today, but they did post a huge update for The Brave and the Bold.  These figures, which will be available in April, look to be traditionally sculpted.  They really highlight the differences in detail from a digitally sculpted figure, like Blackest Night.

The Brave and The Bold Update!

I think it’s time for a montage…and two new DC HeroClix The Brave and The Bold previews!

Let’s recap what you know about The Brave and The Bold: in comic and hobby stores  on April 12th 2010, 55 new figures, includingAlter Egos like Clark Kent / Superman, and duo figs like The Flashes with awesome new special powers. We received a bunch of production samples (figures pulled from the first run of boosters at the factory to check for quality) here at WizKids HQ. I took new photos of figures which we had released earlier images of! Click on the thumbnails for high-quality versions:

Now, I know you’ve been keeping track of The Brave and The Bold figures which have been confirmed as being in the set, so I know that you’re eagerly awaiting new images of: Bruce Wayne / Batman Alter Ego, The Flash and Green Lantern, Batman and Green Arrow and Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. When I get production figures, I’ll photograph them and put them up on this blog. But two weeks ago I hinted at a new TB&TB figure…he was hidden in a bunch of Clix on my desk. Did you find him? Look closer!  The mystery figure is: KID ZOOM.

And here’s Kid Zoom’s character card and dial:

Kid Zoom spent most of his criminal career as the villain Inertia. There’s something very interesting about the Kid Zoom and Inertia costumes…they are essentially the same costuming just in different colors. This happens occasionally in comics, and we are occasionally going to take advantage of the opportunity to add more characters into HeroClix. This means that The Brave and The Bold also includes Inertia!

Inertia and Kid Zoom, while both identities used by Thaddeus Thawne, are very different characters, and as such have different powers and dials. Check out Inertia’s stats:
