New HeroClix Pre-Release Events Cancelled After Train Derailment

One of the trains that was involved in the in the head-on train collision that happened June 28th in Texas was transporting a large shipment of the new HeroClix. This shipment had been intended to fulfill orders for the upcoming Pre-release events around the world. Due to the unknown condition of this product, Wizkids has cancelled the Marvel HeroClix: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man Pre-Release event until further notice.

The release of the regular product will move forward as planned; Wizkids is still able to ship sufficient quantities to proceed with the launch of the product.

While the loss of a nationwide event for the gaming community is unfortunate, the bigger impact is to those who have lost their loved ones and my thoughts and prayers go out to them.
