So it sounds like NECA has indeed bought up WizKids. The main site hasn’t been updated but there is news here and here. The long delayed Hammer of Thor set that was originally scheduled for November last year and then there was talk of them releasing it in March of this year. When that went by there was word of a possibility of being released at Gencon.
Now it seems to be rescheduled for November. So I’ve got to start saving up for a brick now.
