Dark Phoenix – Part 2

A few months ago I fell in love with the Dark Phoenix.

I was distressed to learn that the only I would be able to get my hands on one was to win a HeroClix tournament at Icon, the major gaming convention this weekend.

To my joy and surprise I got a call from the WizKids distributor yesterday. This morning I arrived at the con and went straight to the WizKids stand where I picked up my surplus issue Dark Phoenix.

She cost me an arm and a leg, but a quick glance at eBay confirmed that the collectors’ value is already several times what I paid for her. Excellent investment.

She’s a thing of beauty. And when I get to use her in a game, she’ll be worth it for sure!
