HeroClix and WWE will be joining forces later this year, and now we've got our first look at some of the new figures, which include current and classic WWE superstars.
The new figures were revealed at GAMA, and during the presentation for the new HeroClix sets Wizkids showed off figures for Stone Cold Steve Austin, Macho Man Randy Savage, Charlotte Flair, Finn Balor, John Cena, and Ronda Rousey. As you can see in the photo below, the sculpts look stellar so far, with Stone Cold, Charlotte Flair, and John Cena sporting their famous ring or entrance poses.
Savage, Balor, and Rousey also look good, though those feature more action-oriented poses, with Savage giving an elbow drop, Balor delivering a Coup de Grace, and Rousey doing a swan dive it appears.
The image also reveals that the first wave should be hitting in late summer of this year, though no specific date is given. We also aren't sure what changes in gameplay design from other superhero-based sets will be made, but we're eager to find out. This is also just the first set of figures revealed, and there are plenty of other superstars we can't wait to see hit the tabletop.
You can check out the official announcement details from the press release below.
