The Merc with a Mouth is back and he’s got a few buddies from the X-Force along for the ride in the latest Heroclix expansion.
The Tabletop Spotlight is on the new Deadpool & X-Force Heroclix expansion. And, as our friends from Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy informed me, it’s not just X-Force, it’s also a ton of other heroes like the X-Statix team and Squirrel Girl!
This latest expansion has a bunch of the classic X-Force crew: Cable, Psylocke, Wolverine, Fantomex, and of course Deadpool. We also get mutants from The X-Statix team as well. And I’ll be honest, the X-Statix team is just…weird. I wasn’t a big fan of their run, but hey, I’m not here to talk comics – I’m here to talk about what you can expect in this expansion! On top of that, we also get a bunch of heroes from The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (which is a great comic, btw).
The miniatures are exactly what you’d expect from WizKids Heroclix line – they are all pre-painted plastics. Plus you’ll get all the cards for the different heroes in the box. This being a Collectable game, the boosters are all random. If you enjoy the random factor and want to see which figures you can get your hands on then you can hop over to WizKids and see all the renders of the models HERE. There are over 80 different characters to collect!
Personally, I prefer to know what I’m getting which is why I’m glad they have the Fast Forces packs. They might not be the rarest versions of the hero, but I’m more interested in getting the a cool looking set than a specific rarity.
Overall, this set looks like a ton of fun – I mean, it’s Deadpool themed! We popped a pair of boxes and I got Masacre – he’s kind of like a Mexican Deadpool, only without the super powers but still very killy. There are some pretty cool characters in the set. If you’re into Heroclix and a fan of Deadpool & X-Force then you definitely want to keep an out for these boosters.
“Deadpool makes an X-ceptional return to Marvel HeroClix! Enjoy opening his friends, henchmen, foes, and more in this booster release!
Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool and X-Force pushes the envelope with never before seen gameplay, shocking cracks in the 4th wall, and a very special figure that we’ll be keeping secret for quite some time. Longstanding HeroClix favorite Wolverine returns, alongside Doop and WizKid. Build fun new teams around X-Statix, the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and Mercs for Money!”
CAPTAIN Deadpool…No. Just… Just Deadpool.
