Recently we announced the release a new type of product into the HeroClix landscape, the DC HeroClix: Superman Quick Start Kit, and we wanted to take a moment to introduce everyone to it, as well as explain what we hope to achieve with the Quick Start Kit.
I'll get this because I like the overcosted Lex. They really have to reconsider what you get across the board for around 100 points, across the board, not just the WaTX set. It's not adding up anymore.
Edit: Do have to give them props, the $4.99 price point is really fair.
Whoa, really liking that Lex, but I'll pass on the Supes. Finally a Lex with some offense up top, plus a new Keyword!
Much has been made about the Purple Rings, but I couldn't give a flying flip that they made them purple. Any venue worth it's salt wouldn't prohibit you from playing a purple piece, and they're not meant to be Championship pieces anyhow.
Why get so up in arms about a trifle of a release like this? It's a blip on the radar. If you don't know what I'm referring to, see the following thread full of (mostly) doom and/or gloom:
If stores held more than tournaments, then yes, I could see an use for these. Sadly, someone is going to buy these, take them to wherever is holding heroclix events, 100% will be tournaments, and be told they can't use them.
Or every store will house rule as tournament legal and the purple ring will be useless in non-official Wizkids events.
