This is the correct dice image as revealed by Tom Vassal on the Dice Tower Board game breakfast.

Guess what the new characters are!




Pyro, Psyche, Quicksilver, Jean Grey, Psylocke
Sentinel, Iceman, Toad, Bishop, Mr. Sinister
Cable, Juggernaut, Scarlet Witch, Emma Frost, Namor





*Note: I edited my post to include picture to support my predictions.

I can't imagine that image has anything to do with Moonstone.

Oops! I meant moonstar (not moonstone; I've edited it). I base the guess on this helmet:



Psyche or Mirage. Dani Moonstar.

Too obscure for mass consumption. Falcon and Archangel are far more likely.

You could be right. I wondered about Falcon as he's not exactly an x-men but he does go with Cap well and the colors (red and white) seem a natural match. I wondered about archangel as we already have Angel in the first set...colors work with him too.

I'm thinking Falcon is more likely.

I can't imagine there will be fifteen different characters in the starter...

I don't think it's a mock. What I believe is that these are all Characters included in this expansion and not just the ones in the Stater Set.

I know it says "Starter Set" but Tom might have it wrong.

Very clever OP. Get other people to help you brainstorm for the contest and submit their answers. Touche.

The new expansion will be like the AVX: start + boosters. This is most definitely a mock up.

Is it just me, or is this a pretty terrible idea? It seems like people are going to end up with a LOT of useless sidekick dice.

I know I'm already thinking about finding someone with a bunch of boosters but no starter, and trading sidekick dice to them. When starters become less rare, this won't really be an option.

It's just you. devil

Yeah, we'll have a lot of extra sidekick and action dice, but for $15 you are still getting 16 dice that can only be pulled from boosters as uncommons, 24 character cards, and 10 (hopefully new) basic actions.

Falcon would be a good choice for the second die (correct die color, wings look about right), but I can't imagine why they would include him in the Uncanny X-Men set. He's not a mutant, and he's done nothing with the X-Men that I recall.

Dani Moonstar is a good guess, but I don't think it's right.

We already have Angel in the game. Archangel is a possibility, but I would think the die's colors would be more blue and purple rather than red.

I'm stymied. I guess I'll go with Falcon.

Falcon has been shown to have the mutant power to control birds so he does fit with the mutant theme. And he associated with the avengers so he would not be out of place in the set.

I guess it's a more complicated issue than I thought, but, officially, Falcon is not a mutant and the only evidence to the contrary has been retconned to be the result of a malfunctioning Sentinel.

As for him being an Avenger, all the more reason not to include him in the Uncanny X-Men set, so I don't get your point there.

I am seeing he would fit in with the avengers once you combine sets. It has not been 100% confirmed that there will only be x men related characters in the new set. They may throw in a few avengers to help round it out.
Many people are hoping for the invisible woman to be in the set as well.

What was released previously was an earlier stage mockup, with existing character icons on differently colored dice. This one looks to be very similar to the existing product image for the AvX starter set. If you look closely, it includes dice that aren't in the starter itself, and when I got my starter, it had a completely different "face" than the one in the product image. My guess is that this is the final marketing image they're going to use and includes dice from both the starter and boosters, even if the starter only includes 8 characters.

The second die could also be Icarus or Magneto. The "Cable" die may be Longshot whistle
