Wasn't this, Ticalla Jungle and Defenders of Kinsland supposed to be relased last month or was there a set back that I knew nothing about?

This set ships with Ticalla Jungle...both will arrive sometime in 2008, I'm betting on first quarter.

Defenders will also ship sometime in 2008 as a usual set of four packs in one shipping box...I'd bet it will arrive in the spring, if past releases are any indication.

Well then. Waiting patiently for new releases to get the elves, Marro Calvary from the Defenders of Kinsland and Wu-Sa-Ga from the new large hero expansion set.

I was talking to a friend about this and we came to the conclusion that this might be a lead paint issue. Didnt all the firestorm about lead paint in toys start in November? If this was the case and the figures had lead paint the company may have had to scrap everything that was done and start over which could take a while. Also could explain the marvel expansion not being out yet.

This of course completely a guess and in no way is factual about the lead paint one way or the other. Just a thought we had.

Although if it's a lead paint issue, couldn't alot of the older HS figures have lead paint as well? Maybe we should be concerned about that (*takes figure out of mouth, gargles*).

If there was lead pain in some of the older HS set wouldn't there have been a recall?

This is not a lead paint issue. It has to do with a shake-up with Heroscape being transfered from Hasbro's MB division to the WotC division.

The folks at WotC have said this product will not be released as previously packaged. They still intend to release the figures, but probably not as a large heroes expansion.

More info here.

Defenders of Kinsland has been confirmed to be released in June of this year but the other sets haven't been confirmed.

Quote:
The first product for Heroscape under direction from Wizards will be Small Expansion Set 8 releasing in June 2008, and is called “Defenders of Kinsland.” The 19-figure set will feature assorted heroes, militia, Marro GRok Riders and Elves. Additional sets will follow later in 2008.

It's now been announced that WOTC is still going to continue with the release of Ticalla Jungle and Aquilla's Alliance as planned.

Check it out! http://heroscapers.com/?p=190 ninja
