Some highlights as I heard them. I may have gotten small details wrong, so check my work before repeating please.
-Small vehicles are two per super booster.
-Super boosters will be randomly counterweighted to make cherry picking impossible.
-No Man's Land is six months versus Infinity Gauntlet's eight months. Not sure if this is common knowledge.
-Streets Of Gotham's team packs are "equivalent" to three-figure team packs. Unclear what that means, but some may not have three figures?
-The large amount of product is presented as an answer to the growth curve of Heroclix. Basically the rep says that it's not a perfect solution, but it helps combat shortages based on unforeseen growth by immediately following it up with another release.
-Wizkids claims to be making a conscious effort to preview earlier to allow players to decide if they want to opt in or out, and hopefully to increase preorders.
-Streets Of Gotham has motorcycles.
-The Utility Belt and the Gas Pellets are both participation prizes for week one of No Man's Land.
-No Man's Land has a new map every month. The maps are two-sided. One side is an area before the earthquake, the other is the same map after the earthquake.
-The upcoming Batman board game uses Switchclix, which means that it includes sculpts of four Batman villains and a base for use with that game and a Heroclix base. The figures can be switched back and forth to be used in either game. They will have new dials and new sculpts, and are "very competitive, and editorially accurate in a way we haven't seen these characters before".
-Prime IS a new rarity. Figures with B versions are always Prime. They are "inter-rarity chase" figures. They are more rare than super rares, but sound like they are less rare than chases. It sounds like there will be one in each rarity. They do not replace chases.
-Mage Knight as a miniatures game is still being considered, possibly as a Switchclix product (a new game, but that will also include Heroclix-compatible dials). This may include one-inch role-playing-sized bases as well.
