San Diego Comic-Con has something for everyone, and that includes fans of tabletop games and WWE. Luckily for us, WizKids is bringing those two together in one place thanks to their new WWE HeroClix sets, and fans got an up-close look at some of the figures and packaging for the game. Now, if you didn't happen to be at the show don't worry, because ComicBook.com has you covered with some photos directly from the booth, including looks at figures for Stone Cold, Ric Flair, and more, which you can peruse below.
First off we get a look at the figures for Stone Cold, The Rock, and Ric Flair, who are set up in a white and black wrestling ring. We're not sure if this is simply for display purposes or if this will be the ring that ships with the game, as one of the Starter Sets does come with a Ring.
Next to the ring you can see one of the individually packaged figures, which features AJ Styles, and on the display, three more figures are shown in Undertaker, Roman Reigns, and Trish Stratus.
The sculpts for Stone Cold and The Rock looks fantastic, and while Ric and AJ are a bit off in the facial expression department, they're still solid figures. As for the ring, we do hope it's just a display, as it's too bare-bones, and hopefully, the full ring comes with a bit more detail.
Other figures that will be included in the line are Macho Man Randy Savage, Charlotte Flair, Finn Balor, John Cena, and Ronda Rousey.
“We’re pleased to introduce this new genre to the WizKids portfolio,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “We’re especially thrilled to bring fan-favorite Superstars from the WWE family to the beloved HeroClix and Dice Masters platforms.”0comments

There's currently no official release date for WWE HeroClix, but from the product displays, it will hit this October. Let us know what excites you most about the game in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MattAguilarCB for all things Tabletop and WWE!
