Upper Deck will launch Slingers, a new collectible game featuring Marvel characters, for the holidays. It will appear first in on the Upper Deck Website and in Toys R Us in late November, and ship to hobby stores in December.
The game features a Slinger, which works somewhat like a yo-yo with a patented retractable mechanism and an “Invisible Energy Shield” that allows players to pick up collectible medallions, which will feature Marvel characters. If players sling too hard, the Slinger will hit the ground, for which the device will deduct points and potentially lives from the player. If they sling too soft, they won’t be able to pick up the medallions.
Medallions will have different rarity levels and point values, and are seeded at different ratios within packs. There are a total of 84 different medallions:
