Heroscape is ALIVE! [Wave 8 False Alarm]

EDIT: Don't read this. I am a moron.

I know I haven't been around long enough to have built any credibility, but -- I kid you not -- I walked into a target this morning and found all four WAVE EIGHT figure packs -- one of each. I bought them faster than you can say "involuntary self-urination".

I'm a 44-year-old I.T. professional who tries to remain, well, professional, but I have to admit I feel as giddy as a 12-year-old right now. These sculpts are freaking awesome. I normally care a lot more about the historic military figures and less about the fantasy monsters, but I have to say that all four packs are gorgeous. Just unbelievably compelling.

Interesting tidbits: (1) The back of the box pushes the RotV master set, not the SotM set as I would have expected. (2) There is not a "collection 8" stripe on the package. From marketing conversations we had back in my days in the CCG industry, I assume they have decided that "collection 8" sends a message to new players that "you are far behind". I would guess that we will not see the wave mentioned on any future packages.

This was on the way to work, but when I get home I will try to post some pictures so you will know (or at least can hope) that I am not a dirty lying tormentor. I went to three different Targets (and my wife went to a fourth) with my sheet of UPC codes to scan, and none of the other Targets had any hint of Wave 8.

Did I mention that the sculpts are freaking awesome?

EDIT: Don't read this. I am a moron who can't tell the difference between Wave 8 and Wave 2. I throw myself on the mercy of the court for making everyone's pulse race for no reason. Freakin' stupid n00bs.

darth_stalker Woo who?


The elves... I must know, how many are wizards? archmages? The elf in the hero pack, is he Ullar or Utgar?

Help me doctor, I think I have hypochondria!

You guys are going to hate me ... I'm at work and the figures are at home. I can't check any of that stuff until this evening -- but at least I'm in the Eastern time zone.

I've only been playing Heroscape since Christmas day, so I'm not yet deeply immersed enough to immediately notice things like factions and stats. I was just so shocked to actually see them, and then immediately panicked and started driving to every Target I could to see if there were more. I really only had time to marvel at the aesthetics of the figures.

I will definitely spoil some details when I get home tonight.

Maybe I'm too pessimistic, but do the packs look anything like one of these?

Uh ... I remember at least one of the packs had two double sands. I didn't notice any snow or lava -- those would have caught my attention. With the strong Marro presence in these packs I'm hoping for a little swamp, myself. There's only one SotM set in my house and it belongs to my daughter, who is somewhat protective (understandably so, since she bought it with her own money).

I just have to say this and don't be upset, but are you SURE it's wave 8 and not an older wave? I don't want to start getting my, and everyone elses, hopes up for a false alarm.

If it is though, what a shocker...

Indeed, I'm hoping this is the real deal.
And if so, can I get my hands on them any time soon.

It's all good man. It sounded to good to be true. Therefore it was.

These things happen. I'll lock this just to keep the freak-outs to a minimum. We still appreciate the intent Just_a_Bill. The good news for you is that Wave 2 is awesome, and a great addition to any 'Scaper's collection.
