NECA_LogoNECA released a much anticipated (and thus not very surprising) PRESS RELEASEtoday regarding it’s purchase of the major properties of WizKids games from Topps.


Noted specifically in the release is the fact that both Marvel and DC HeroClix will continue to be released, which confirms officially what I was told at GenCon and what has been widely reported elsewhere.  The deal also included the “Pirates” line of games, though I noticed that the movie version of the game was not mentioned specifically, and no mention was made of the Star Wars version of the Pocket Model game, leading me to believe that may be a permanent casualty of the reorg.

 Also, Mage Knight was thrown in the mix, which is interesting since D&D minis no longer have skirmish rules and hence aren’t technically in competition any longer with a potential revival of Mage Knight.  (Though World of Warcraft minis are still a force to reckon with, to be sure.)
