ICv2 has learned some details concerning WizKids’ June releases that will tie-in with the release of Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. WizKids’ DKR releases, which will be out a month before the film debuts on July 20th, will include a The Dark Knight Rises Gravity Feed Display, a The Dark Knight Rises Mini-Game, a The Dark Knight Rises Starter Set, and a special The Dark Knight Rises Marquee Figure.
The Dark Knight Rises Gravity Feed Display includes twenty-four individually-packaged DKR figures. The Gravity Feed display features ten new figures based on characters in the movie and should appeal to both dedicated DC HeroClix players and impulse buyers. Each single-figure foil pack also contains an exclusive code for HeroClix online content.
In The Dark Knight Rises Mini-Game players can choose to be Batman, Bane, Catwoman, and the Joker. Up to four participants can battle for supremacy in Gotham City. The Mini-Game includes a fold-out gameboard, the HeroClix rules sheet, and the “Powers and Abilities” card—everything that new or established players need to play the game.
The DC HeroClix Dark Knight Starter Set contains six figures with new dial designs not found anywhere else. The Starter Set also includes two maps, the HeroClix rules, the “Powers and Abilities” card, dice, and tokens. Figures in the set include Batman, Catwoman, the Joker, Bane, Harvey Two-Face, and Sgt. Gordon.
WizKids is also producing a The Dark Knight Rises Marquee Figure, the figures that take the place of the former incentive figures for WizKids “Buy it by the Brick” promotions. Now retailers will be able to use these figures as retail incentives, additional prize support, or even as promotional items.
