Well, this one is, anyway. WizKids is obviously going whole-Warthog into the Halo ActionClix CMG, as proven by the recent press release and photos from the San Diego ComicCon. That Scarab figure, the big, menacing convention exclusive for this year’s round of shows, is far too big to be in a miniatures game. I mean, where would you keep it?
We’ve still got over a month until the game’s September release, at which point “Series One will have more than 80 pieces, including Hunter Combat Pack, Warthog Pack and Banshee Pack. Packs include exclusive Halo 3 preview content. The series also features two main booster pack varieties â€“ a $10 pack (4 game figures, 4 stat cards, 2 die, rules and map) and an $11 pack ( 5-figure blind pack with 5 figures, 5 stat cards, rules and map).”
All I know is, the first gamer to run a sprawling Aliens versus Halo Spartans battle, wins.
To note, the big thing will be available through retail stores for $249.99.
Like we are stocking one, but ya…we could always special order it 😀
“Big-atures” come to gaming at last.
“I mean, where would you keep it?”
Duh, in the garage. 😉
I’d be worried it would sneak back in at night and kill me in my sleep.
At the beginning of ComicCon, you needed to win a raffle to order it.
By Saturday, you no longer needed to.
Oops. Did we overestimate demand a tad for a GIANT FREAKING PIECE for a game NO ONE HAS PLAYED YET???
Maybe so, Rich, but I wish I had been there… that puppy would have been dumped on Ebay the moment I got home.
$250?????? And here I thought my unpainted minis habit was expensive!
