#1: Web of Spider-Man Heroclix Info. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Sat May 22, 2010 5:46 pm ---- I am starting this thread to contain all the info regarding the Marvel Heroclix expansion for August 2010*, Web of Spider-Man.
Before we had this sparkly new section on our forums for Heroclix, we posted a thread featuring the promotional poster for the set. You can find it here:
The set's primary theme is Spider-Man, his allies, and his enemies. It will also feature characters from Dark Reign.
Confirmed to be in the set at this point:
1. Norman Osborn
2. Green Goblin
3. Iron Patriot
4. Red Hulk
6. Dr. Octopus
7. Wolverine (standard yellow costume)
8. Wolverine (black X-Force costume)
11. Black Cat
13. Venom (I know we JUST got him in the last Marvel set, but here he is again!)
15. Iron Man & War Machine (duo fig)
> Doctor Octopus is supposed to have some amazing special 4-armed attack ability.
> There will be 40 characters from the set that have never been made in Heroclix before. I assume that a Norman Osborn out of costume and an Iron Patriot count, but not Green Goblin.
> There will be a new web-shooting mechanic. I've no idea what that means.
> It has been mentioned that the army-building options from the last two sets will be carried forward, so there will be some kind of generics. Whether or not they use the REV-style system we saw in Brave & the Bold, we do not know.
> The Buy-It-By-the-Brick figure will be Spider-Man as portrayed on the cover of Amazing Fantasy #15, his first appearance, drawn by Jack Kirby. It will show him swinging past a building carrying a thug. Look at the poster. It looks cool.
> The Spidey-theme promises characters from his earliest appearances to more modern characters, both popular and obscure.
I'll keep posting more info as I get it. Don't forget to let us know at the store if you want us to preorder a brick or a case.
* - The original Aug. release has been pushed back to Sept. 9.

#2: Re: Web of Spider-Man Heroclix Info. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:33 pm ---- Hey! With Web of Spider-Man releasing on Aug. 4, just 6 weeks from now, you'd think we'd be receiving more previews for who, exactly, is in the set.
And on that note, here is a link to today's preview, featuring pictures and dials for Carnage and Cardiac:
I notice that the HAMMER agent is referred to as the Elite operative. This suggests to me that other operatives will be present in the set, some of them regular or standard operatives. For those familiar with the Brave and the Bold set, this will probably be very similar to the way they made Amazons, Checkmate agents, Parademons, and League of Assassins members - there will be 3 slots taken up by different HAMMER agents, each using the same sculpt painted differently.
Also: take note of the rarity on those figures - Norman Osborn is uncommon. Iron Patriot is rare. The Green Goblin is a super-rare. It will be a bit tricky to get all 3 figures, but it looks like they will provide for some very interesting play if you can manage it.
#4: Re: Web of Spider-Man Heroclix Info. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Sat Jul 03, 2010 10:57 am ---- Slightly bad news on the Web of Spider-Man front: Wizkids has to delay the release of this expansion as well as the release of the Watchmen's collectors set.
The Watchmen's collectors set, originally scheduled for the end of July now will be released on Aug. 25.
The Web of Spider-Man Marvel Heroclix expansion, which was originally scheduled for an Aug. 3 street date, has now been pushed back to a September 8 release.
It's kind of a bummer, but the products are still coming, so don't fret.
In order to keep this post from being a complete downer, though, here's the updated list of confirmed figures. I now have numbers only by the ones for which we have confirmation of their place in the set.
Confirmed to be in the set at this point:
Wolverine (standard yellow costume)
Wolverine (black X-Force costume)
Iron Man & War Machine (duo fig) 17. H.A.M.M.E.R. Elite Operative 18. Carnage 23. Norman Osborn
39. Iron Patriot 41. Cardiac 58. Green Goblin
That's 18 out of 60 known figs. I am definitely looking forward to the next previews.
#5: Re: Web of Spider-Man Heroclix Info. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Tue Jul 06, 2010 5:43 pm ---- The U-Foes are now confirmed to be in the set!
A bunch of guys over at HCRealms have been poring over the above photos and have put together a list I would say is 90-100% accurate, so I will reprint it here with the warning that the set placement isn't confirmed and there may be one or two little mistakes, but likely no more than that:

6. Wolverine (X-Force)
7. Wolverine (brown uni)
8. Peter Parker AE
9. Black Cat
10. Molten Man

58. Green Goblin
#7: Re: Web of Spider-Man Heroclix Info. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Tue Aug 17, 2010 2:13 pm ---- OK, here is the real-deal list. This differs from the last list in that all figures are confirmed AND all positions (set numbers) are also confirmed.
Normally, positions 61-64 are chase figures. It has been confirmed that instead of being chases, those figures are super-rares. That means this is the first set with 16 super-rares.
#100, of course, is the Buy-It-By-the-Brick figure. Figures 101-105 are Limited Edition prize figures (repaints/alt dials from figures already in the set) that cannot be acquired through booster packs. They can only be earned through playing in tournaments, like the ones we hold at Merlyn's on Sundays at 1 pm.
Without further ado, the list:
1. HAMMER Agent
2. Symbiote (Carnage Repaint)
5. Code: Blue Officer
7. Spider-Man (AE)
8. Peter Parker (AE)
9. Venom (AE)
10. Eddie Brock (AE)
13. Will O The Wisp
14. Iron Man
15. Molten Man
17. H.A.M.M.E.R. Elite Operative
21. Lt. Marcus Stone
22. Spider-Man (Black) (AE)
23. Norman Osborn (AE)
24. Ben Rielly (AE)
25. Anti-Venom (AE)
26. Black Cat
30. Mary Jane Watson
34. Victor Mancha
35. J. Jonah Jameson
38. Noh-Var (Marvel Boy)
39. Iron-Patriot (AE)
40. Scarlet Spider (AE)
44. Rocket Racer
50. Red Hulk
51. The Spot
53. Red She-Hulk
54. Doctor Octopus
58. Green Goblin (AE)
59. Iron Man & War Machine (duo)
63. Amazing Bag-Man
64. Captain Universe Spider-Man
100 BibtB figure: Spider-Man/Thug (cover of Amazing Fantasy #15)
102. Night Nurse
103. Daken (Dark Avengers)
104. Researcher repaint
105. The Burglar
