Laura Inglis 06/04/2012 Reviews

According to the information on the the Wizkids Heroclix site, these fantastic exclusive figures are being released as part of a four-figure exclusive Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD set.   If you’re going to San Diego Comic Con you’ll be able to get them at the NECA booth (while supplies last).  According to the press release this four-figure/DVD combo pack will also be available in select brick and mortar stores in North America.  The release did not mention exactly which stores would have this combo pack. Check out the full PR below!

Greetings HeroClix Fans and Supporters!

 

Some of our eagle-eyed HeroClix players, collectors, and enthusiasts have already spotted the Stan Lee HeroClix figure we posted to our Facebook a couple of weeks ago.  Amidst the excitement and incredible discussion this triggered online, there were a few questions that stood out:

 

  • “What is this?”
  • “Is this real?”
  • “OMG! I must have it! Where do I get it?”

 

Rest assured True Believers, the Stan Lee HeroClix is indeed real and actually part of a four-figure exclusive Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD set! From the Comic-Con Movie website:

 

“COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE- a film by Morgan Spurlock explores this amazing cultural phenomenon by following the lives of five attendees as they descend upon the ultimate geek mecca at San Diego Comic-Con 2010:

 

  • Eric, an aspiring illustrator, is hoping to impress publishers and land a job;
  • Holly, costume and creature designer, hopes her creations will win the big prize;
  • Chuck, a long-time comic book dealer, is looking for a big sale to pay off his debts;
  • Skip, longtime amateur illustrator wants to be discovered at this year’s event;
  • James, a young fan, hopes his girlfriend will accept a dramatic proposal.

 

One on one interviews with Comic-Con veterans who have turned their passions into professions include Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller, Kevin Smith, Matt Groening, Seth Rogen, Eli Roth and others are shared throughout the film along with up close and up front coverage of all the panels, parades, photos, costumes, crowds and camaraderie that make up one of the largest fan gatherings in the U.S.”

 

Available this July for a limited North American brick and mortar store release, this exclusive DVD and HeroClix combo pack will contain four HeroClix figures not found anywhere else, and a Region 1 coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!).

 

The four HeroClix figures included in this exclusive combo-pack represent key figures who helped make this movie possible!

Stan Lee

 

Joss Whedon

 

Harry Knowles

 

Morgan Spurlock

This HeroClix Comic-Con combo pack should not be confused with the NECA action figure combo pack, which includes two of the noted visionaries above.  The NECA action figure combo pack also contains a Region 1-coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!) and two action figures to re-enact all of your favorite moments from the movie!

 

Again, the Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope DVD and HeroClix Combo-Pack will be available this July for a limited North American brick and mortar store release through traditional distributor channels.   Included are the four HeroClix figures above and a Region 1 coded DVD (United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. Territories only!).  A limited quantity will also be available at San Diego Comic Con as well, so please visit the NECA booth if you’re attending!
