I’ve just got an excerpt from WizKid’s preview of two of the figures from the upcoming Heroclix Web of Spider-Man set that was announced back in late April – Carnage and Cardiac. But you should really check out the full article, especially if you’re interested in the product planning that goes into producing a set of figures like this.
Today, I have two sneak peaks of figs for you to look at, one from each category. First up, I have a “need.” If you’re going to do a Spider-Man set, you got to have representatives on the Symbiote front. Fans have been bugging (okay, asking) me for a new Carnage since I began working on Clix years ago. Web of Spider-Man includes a powerhouse version of Cletus Kasady that is sure to guarantee “maximum carnage.” Equipped with a vicious Special “Symbiote Blade,” Carnage is a worthy adversary. Next up on my preview board is another fan-demanded piece that conveniently happens to be from the Spider-verse.
Wow, that sculpt is a real shocker! All bad puns aside, what a breath-taking sculpt and paint for this awesome frie-nemy of Spider-Man. While Carnage is a top-line Spider enemy with a couple of major cross-over stories under his belt, Cardiac has a slightly longer and more nuanced relationship with our favorite webhead. He’s a perfect example of the supporting cast that makes Spider-Man’s world so rich and interesting. I can’t wait to show you more figs from the set, and in my next article, we’ll get into one of the meaty mechanics that makes Web truly innovative.
