WizKids has shared information and pictures on the forthcoming Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm token creatures it will release in July.
WizKids announced the token creature figures when the company expanded its licensing relationship with Wizards of the Coast last year (see “WizKids to Produce ‘Magic: The Gathering’ Board Game, Minis”), and then showed off prototypes at New York Toy Fair (see “‘Magic: The Gathering’ Minis, Massive ‘D&D’ Ship, Black Dragon Trophy”).
The inaugural set will include 28 highly-detailed Creature Forge Token Figures,which stand up to 55 mm high. Each comes with a base representing one the five colors of mana. The collection will include the iconic Angel, Dragon, Spider, and Zombie, as well as artifacts and multicolored creatures. Many will include translucent parts. The figures will be sold in Gravity Feeds containing 24 figures, (presumably blind boxed,) for $3.49 each.
The company also announced a Magic: The Gathering board game today (see “WizKids Unveils ‘Magic: The Gathering’ Board Game”)
