“BUY IT BY THE BRICK” FIGURE REPRINT
Order Now to Ensure Receipt of an Un-Numbered
Secret Invasion “Super Skrull Illuminati” Figure!
— WizKids Inc. proudly announces that for the first time in the history of the “Buy it by the Brick” program, the company will be reprinting a brick figure - the Super Skrull: Illuminati from Marvel HeroClix: Secret Invasion – to meet excess consumer demand.
As previously announced, the original 5,000 numbered versions of the Super Skrull: Illuminati Brick Figure are sold out. Having exceeded the minimum threshold of 500 additional unfulfilled orders, WizKids will officially be reprinting the Super Skrull: Illuminati as un-numbered figures to fulfill all orders received before October 24, 2008.
“We are thrilled at the momentum fans and retailers have created behind Marvel HeroClix: Secret Invasion and the ‘Buy it by the Brick Program’”, said Andre Lawless, Director of Marketing for WizKids, Inc. “This reprint gives consumers a second shot at collecting a cool figure tied into a hot comic storyline. The strength of the set, its storyline tie-ins, and the Brick promotion have resulted in Secret Invasion being 95% sold out in the North American market.”
The sellout of the initial Super Skrull: Illuminati figures marks the second “Buy it by the Brick” program sellout in a row, following DC HeroClix: Crisis in February 2008.
Fans of Marvel HeroClix: Secret Invasion have approximately 40 days left to submit orders for the un-numbered brick figure, as the Super Skrull: Illuminati figure will never be reprinted again.
WizKids will notify all customers that submitted a brick coupon and did not receive a brick figure of their order status once the promotion end date arrives.
Qualifying consumers will receive their un-numbered brick figures within the next several months. Reprinted brick figures will be mailed directly to consumers as soon as they are available.
