SDCC 2012: Marvel HeroClix Exclusive Giant-Man and Ant-Man (Kinda) Reveal

We’re catching up on SDCC exclusives, and a few weeks back, NECA revealed its HeroClix exclusive – Giant-Man, with an in-scale (read: too small for you to see him and too small for them to put anything on the HeroClix base) Ant-Man.

Don’t worry – NECA is making an actual HeroClix figure for Ant-Man too – he’ll come with his better half, the Wasp.

NECA Does SDCC Pt. 1: Giant-Man HeroClix Unveiled!

We’re Con Bound!

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be giving special sneak peaks out our 2012 convention exclusives, and we start today with the brand-spanking new 2012 Convention Exclusive Marvel HeroClix Giant-Man Super Booster! Priced at $39.99, Giant-Man also includes a proportionate Ant-Man HeroClix figure that’s invisible!

No, really, like he’s not there. Set to the scale of Giant-Man, you can’t see Henry Pym when he shrinks all the way down to Ant-Man size. Also, when Marvel HeroClix first premiered way back in 2002, a similar Ant-Man was offered at conventions that year, so this Ant-Man makes a perfect bonus piece for Pym as Giant-Man. As you can see above, there’s a base with Ant-Man on it, and you’ll just have to take our word for it that he’s there. You can’t possibly imagine how hard it was to sculpt something so small that it’s invisible to the naked eye.

Size Matters

Henry Pym AKA Giant-Man first appeared in Marvel’s Tales to Astonish #56 in 1964, having already made his debut as Ant-Man in issue #35 two years earlier. Rumors have been kicking around for a while now about a movie in the works, so we thought no better time to debut this Giant-Man Chaos War HeroClix!

Like all of the figures in the Chaos War collection, Giant-Man is gorgeously detailed and accurate to the comics. He’ll be available at San Diego Comic Con and other upcoming 2012 conventions.

For more on HeroClix, be sure to check out the Marvel Chaos War HeroClix collection, and keep it tuned to your favorite action figures wholesaler for other 2012 convention exclusives to come and all the best merchandise from your favorite games, movies, and more!

Heroclix Web of Spider-Man Preview of Carnage and Cardiac

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.
