No self respecting Heroclix player should EVER field a team with a Hello Kitty piece in it . . . EVER! I saw this news about an hour ago and couldn't help but shake my head. Hello Kitty is on a LOT of different products - but Heroclix is the LAST place I would expect to see it. Seems like a really dumb choice. Heroclix players aren't going to buy it and Hello Kitty fans aren't going to buy the Heroclix product. Imagine the guy at WizKids that got handed this project!! gulpsobluecry

I have been expecting Hello Kitty! as a new investigator for the next Arkham Horror expansion.

I don't think this will be a Clix game. If you go through all the photos from that fair, all the other boxes clearly said HeroClix on them, but this one does not.

Instead, I believe that this will be just like their Smurfs release a year or so ago when they released a simple game, and the counter top displays were collectible expansions of the game.

In fact, they had a box representing the second wave of expansions for that Smurf game sitting very close to this Hello Kitty box.


Note: Even though the article's author says that it will have a Clix release, the Company itself never said it in their official releases that I have seen, so there is some confusion there. I'm hoping for all of my friends in the Clix community that they just are referring to a Smurf-like realease, that would be at the same scale as the Heroclix figures.

Here is the ICv2 post on the announcement:

So maybe not a Heroclix game given the "apparently" in that sentence. We can only hope.

Heroclix is cross-game compatible, right? If so, I can have the Enterprise from Star Trek HeroClix: Tactics fight Hello Kitty. Finally, my dream fight can come to life and I can finally settle who would win.

Wow, you really need to get over yourself. There's FAR worse things to get upset about then Hello Kitty toys for christ's sake.

I think it's awesome. I've never played Heroclix and I'd buy the fuck out of these. However, if you actually read the announcement you'd see they don't actually say they're making Heroclix Hello Kitty at all so the people you describe can continue playing without their paper thin masculinity being threatened.

Yes it is. I have personally KO'ed the Starship Enterprise with Squirrel Girl's pet Monkey Joe.

Oddly enough, that was right about the time when I decided that I need to think about exiting that game.

Harsh! Just so you know, I don't play Heroclix but I know people that do and no they would not buy Hello Kitty Heroclix. It's a game about superheroes. However, plastic collectable Hello Kitty figurines would certainly sell, just to a different demographic. And the reason for the uncertainty is that I have seen 2 or 3 different announcements or news posts that mention Heroclix and Hello Kitty related to this agreement. At least one of those puts them in the same sentence. I doubt it's true since it just doesn't make any sense but time will tell.
