Ok. You'd think that after reading your site for so long now I'd actually know what these things are.

Is it like a board game/role playing game?

I know they are making some small figures like this of Transformers for something called Attacktix or something so I assume it is all kind of related.

Do you actually play the game or just collect the pieces?

It's called Heroclix. I play every week.

Same here naladahc...I don't know how to play either. I'd love to learn, but those rules on the Heroclix site seem impenetrable, and my LCS doesn't have beginners leagues or newbie workshops. Everyone is out for blood.

But damn, I love to look at them, just to admire the sculpts. Especially the giant, convention exclusive/rare characters like - great googly moogly I want one - this

I can teach to you play while you're in town, Ariel. The key is to play for fun with friends.

It's like bowling; you don't have to do it well to be able to enjoy it.

Oh, and what IS that shade of lipstick Galactus wears?

Ariel said...

Behold - This year's release from Revlon!

That Carol Burnett reference, as well as being dead-on accurate, was both funny and an amazing display of your command of the images of junk culture.

I am impressed.

HAW! Since when was Monica Rambeau a Solid Gold Dancer?

Your post was 100% genius, pal, as per usual.

Rather hard to enjoy Heroclix when you don't have a Killer Moth.

LtFlux said...

shouldn't jessica jones have a bottle of booze in her hand (or luke cage's unmentionables) and NOT a latte? oy ...

Scipio said...

I do have a Killer Moth.

Custom.

Perhaps it's not a latte but an Irish coffee.
