An overpriced, collectible miniatures game concept produced by Wizkids Games. Examples: Hero Clix and Horror Clix.
The use of piss poor injection molded plastic figures the same quality one finds in supermarket vending machines.
Convoluted rules that require weekly revisions and erratas.
Sets consisting of 3-5 interesting characters, the three lame headliners for each series and a Hefty cinch-sack full of filler no one could possibly want.
Play mats that may, or may not, have silver dollar Mickey Mouse pancake prices printed on the back.
Idiotic, attention grasping sales gimmicks, like having customers wait in line just for the opportunity -to win a raffle -to buy a product at a convention. FUN!
(That's right, you get the fun of waiting in line for the chance to win the chance to buy a product later at the con! AND the fun of waiting for your number to be drawn! FUN!)
Famous for producing no less then 40 Spiderman versions. One of which, may actually be playable. Took at least four versions before the "Super Senses" ability was even used.
Producing limited edition "prizes" the majority of which, are virtually unusable.
Milking idiotic, money-to-burn neckbeards for money most folks drop on samll automobiles.
Community consists mostly of snarky, virginal jerks who spend the day kissing Wizkids' collective ass for ripping them off and wallowing in fact that they will never touch a vagina. (see also: HCRealms)
The latest pile of overpriced, plastic clix crap is the Scarab from the video game series Halo. At $250, you can buy Halo 3 limited edition with the giant helmet thing. Except this is just a big plastic toy. That doesn't do anything. Except remind of you where that 250 dollars went...
