Wizkids/NECA to Produce LORD OF THE RINGS HeroClix
I'm a huge fan of HeroClix. I love the 'plastic crack'. I have about 2000 or so super hero army men. I don't time to play often anymore but still collect and judge the game at Comic Store West.
Wizkids and NECA have just announced that a Lord of the Rings HeroClix system is coming in 2011. Read all about it here. I am extremely excited about this, I bought the LOTR miniature game that came out about 8 years ago (and flopped) and it just didn't play very well. Now Wizkids is making a run at it and I think this is going to do very well for them; why you may ask? They are making it fully compatible with HeroClix. Now I can have Hawkeye and Legolis fight !!
I think NECA is doing all the right stuff with the Wizkids product that they bought. I think all of the clix based games need to be 100% compatible with each other; they can call it the CLIX ENGINE and have HeroClix, HorrorClix, LOTRClix, MechClix, FantasyClix, ArmyClix, Star TrekClix, etc.
