Marvel Super Heroes Come To Life In First-Ever Life-Size, Live-Action Marvel HeroClix Miniature Battle Game

Human-sized HeroClix figure

Tampa, Fla. - The Marvel super heroes will come to life and do battle at Channelside Cinemas & IMAX in Tampa, Fla., at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2003, in the first-ever Life-Size, Live Action demonstration of the wildly popular miniature battle game, Marvel HeroClix.

The live-action demo will be part of a day-long event that will celebrate the opening of the new Daredevil movie, which will be showing on the giant IMAX screen at ChannelSide. Life-size HeroClix bases have been created by Jonathan Douglas, Managing Director at Channelside, especially for the demo. Professional quality costumes of the Marvel characters Daredevil, Spider-Man, Elektra and Bullseye will be worn by local fans who have volunteered to take part in the event. They will stand on the bases and do battle in a demonstration of the game. Other Marvel costumed characters (by local fans) are expected to make special appearances at the event.

The event will also include a Sealed Marvel HeroClix: Clobberin' Time Booster Pack Tournament in the theater lobby hosted by The Comics Club, Inc, a local full-service comic book and gaming store located in the Tampa suburb of Brandon, Fla. The competition will be an officially sanctioned tournament by WizKids. Prizes will be awarded to the tournament winners. All participants in the tournament will receive a free movie pass to Channelside Cinemas, as well as chances for door prizes supplied by The Comics Club.

HeroClix, a miniature battle game produced by hobby game company WizKids of Bellevue, Wash., is the first collectible miniature battle game. Each figure, a miniature of a Marvel comic book character, is affixed to a dial that shows the figure's attack and defense levels, as well as special abilities. The dial is turned, or "clicked", each time a figure takes damage in the game. The company also produces a DC super hero version of the game.

Admission to the demonstration is free. The tournament requires the purchase of sealed Marvel HeroClix: Clobberin' Time boosters at the event. WizKids and Marvel comics and other merchandise will be available for sale at The Comics Club's booth at the event.
