Today, WizKids announced the “Con In Your Store” program that will provide the opportunity for prizes and other exclusives you would normally find at a convention…at your local game store.
As its name implies, Con In Your Store brings the convention experience (except the long lines perhaps ; ) to participating friendly local game and comic shops by offering both desirable participation and competitive prizes as well as for-sale exclusives. There are three levels by which stores can participate in the Con In Your Store program, each with more content than the last, allowing stores to scale the in-store convention experience to the size they want.
This particular Con In Your Store program is an Alliance Games Distributor-exclusive program wherein stores purchase a quantity of designated product at different tiers and then receive, at no additional cost, their Con In Your Store kit(s), each containing a number of participation and competitive prizes, and for-sale exclusives.
Stores must be registered with the WizKids Event System (WES) and program kits will be available for the game store to procure. Here is an idea what you can expect in these kits:
DC HeroClix: White Lantern chase figures (Superman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan, Green Arrow, Ice, the Flash, Bart Allen, Superboy, Donna Troy, and/or Animal Man)
DC HeroClix: Wonder Woman convention exclusive figures
Marvel HeroClix: Horsemen of Apocalypse convention exclusive figures (War, Famine, and/or Pestilence)
Marvel HeroClix: Moonstone convention exclusive figure
KA2 HeroClix: Colonel Stars & Stripes chase figure
“Big” Kits are available based on the local game store’s WizKids product order. If that order is $250 or more, then the “Big” Kits are obtainable and come with:
Marvel HeroClix: Shuma Gorath exclusive colossal figure
DC HeroClix: Trinity of Sin exclusive team base
Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends exclusive team base
Marvel HeroClix: Captain America Sentinel exclusive colossal figure
