Unfortunately, I’m likely only making it to this year’s NOVA Open just for one day, but that didn’t stop me from snapping close to 400 photos during the day. Check out the sights from the best wargaming convention in the Mid-Atlantic.
Corvus Belli has announced that the cards from their new product 286000 Classified Deck (case of 10 decks) ENG don’t reach the quality standards of Corvus Belli, so they are removing them from the market and substituting them with a higher quality new version.
The game company is sending to all the customers the same number of decks they have received.
It is very important that stores don’t sell any deck that you still have in stock, and that you inform of the situation to all customers that purchased this product.
All the decks received should be destroyed, and they are not allowed to be sold.
They hope that the new version will be ready in 4 weeks.
This summer, Marvel fans were asked to vote in a special poll, designed to determine the fate of six Minimates mini-figures! Four of these Minimates would make up a new box set, available exclusively at select Toys”R”Us stores and online at Toysrus.com; the other two would go on to an unknown fate. Now, Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce the results of the poll!
The Infinity Box Set will be available exclusively at Toys”R”Us starting this month, and will include Space Suit Captain America, Armored Hulk, Thane and Thanos, all based on their appearances in Marvel’s 2013 Infinity crossover. Each figure stands approximately 2 inches tall and features interchangeable parts. Also included in the set are four clear display bases, as well as hairpiece, glove and shield accessories for Captain America.
For those who voted for Mark 38 Armor Iron Man or Ronan the Accuser, have no fear! Both of these figures will be available as part of a Marvel Minimates 2-pack exclusively at Toys”R”Us! As part of Series 19, Ronan will come with Iron Man in his new-fangled space armor. Additionally, Anti-Sinister Six Spider-Man will come with Mysterio, Payback Wolverine will come with a Sentinel and Quicksilver will come with The Vision!
One of the biggest events in the Marvel Universe last year was Infinity, in which the Avengers protected Earth from imminent destruction even as the world-conquering Thanos cut a path through the galaxy in search of his mysterious son. This year, Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce an all-new Marvel Minimates box set based on the crossover, and you get to pick who’s in it!
The box set will be available this fall exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores and online at Toysrus.com, and will include four different Minimates. You’ll get to pick which four by casting your vote below. Pick four out of the six possible characters — Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thanos, Thane and Ronan — and the four with the highest number of votes will be included in the box set! Check out the control art below, and get voting!
