Piñata may Open HeroClix
HeroClix may live on yet. WizKids’ Brand Manager Jake Theis and Director of Brand Management and Marketing Justin Ziran are forming Piñata Games with the intent of acquiring the HeroClix Collectible Miniatures Game. To raise funds for the new effort, they have turned to the rapidly expanding Save HeroClix movements.
The game first arrived in May 2002 with a set of characters from the Marvel Universe and was rapidly followed in September by DC heroes. Since then, most major comic book publishers have had some or all of their characters become players in the game. Rare variants and exclusive figures fueled collectors’ imaginations.
