Heroclix?

11 replies • Last post

Today I went to see my family down state, and ended up seeing my brother and his friend playing this thing called Heroclix.

It was this weird Dungeons and Dragons type thing I guess, but you have figures based on comic books and roll dice to do point damage.

Have any of you on CL heard about this game? They seemed pretty into it, but I couldn't make heads or tails of the rules with my kids there.

Apparently they are collectible too, as my brother said he has some expensive ones.

Interesting stuff...

Yeah, I had seen the site before but am wondering if anyone here has heard of them. I think its funny to see someone playing this game, but apparently it is popular. I asked this guy in town and he looked at me like I was crazy because I had never heard of them!

That's funny because I took my oldest kid to the comic book shop today and like two kids came in looking for those Pokemon cards.

I couldn't believe they are still popular. My brother played those when he was like 8 and they are still going strong.

Wow maybe there is a market for the ones we have packed away. I know I had to wait in line @ this comic shop for some Pokemon card they HAD to have. Maybe we are sitting on a goldmine. YEAH right. I thought the interest had fizzled out. Maybe just my kids" interest fizzled out. We have lots of beanie babies that I camped out for too. Smile Those were the days.

Ha, my mom gave me her Beanie Babies for our twins when they were babies. We decided we couldn't have the hundreds of them laying around the house and instead donated them to the local hospital to give to sick kids.

I ended up buying a set of the heroclix for me and my kid to play on eBay for $3. Figured it is something her and I can do to stay close as she is getting too old to play princesses and stuff.

She likes girl comic characters, so I need to get her a Catwoman and few other girl figures to play with.

I meant to get back and post more than the link, lol. I have NOT heard of these before, but my nephews are always flitting from one thing to the other from Pokemon to those Magic cards, to other things I don't even know the names of, etc. lol I never know what the "latest thing" is for them, and I always have to ask my SIL what they are into now.

When I was at my middle son's house, he showed me this cool computer game his GF plays. He let me make my own character and wander around in this HUGE land and fight things, etc. It was really crazy how HUGE the game is and the different characters you can make and the MANY AND VARIED places they can go. It looked like a game that could go on forever.

We need to come up with something like Heroclix, 'Slim and make our first trillion! Smile Wink

Yes! I used to keep up on all the latest through my sons. Now I know all the latest music and movies, etc., but certainly not all the "toys" anymore. lol

They have this toy show on Travel Channel where a guy goes and buys nostalgic toys so he can resell them. It is stunning that so many toys I had as a kid are worth so much!

I saw one toy that he sold for something like $18,000 at a show. I cannot believe a kids toy can be worth so much. I'm in the loop with my 8 year old and 3 year old twins, but things aren't nearly as good as they were when I was little.

My oldest son is wishing he still had all his toys. He sees many he used to have, too, and he is starting to collect a bit again, but mainly for the nostalgia, not the money. If we only knew then what we know now, right? Smile
