Metallo is confirmed as a new character in the text above, and it sounds like we’re likely going to get a few more new characters that haven’t been in Dice Masters yet.

The DC Comics Dice Masters: Doom Patrol Team Pack is going to uncover new ways to win!

I may be reading too much into that statement, but it sounds like they’re going to introduce a new game mechanic or ability that allows you to win the game outside of the standard method. Or maybe they’re just talking about winning with new characters that haven’t been in the game yet.

Final Thoughts

It’s nice to see WizKids scheduling product this far in advance. There is still an absence of blind product on the schedule, but that doesn’t mean they’ve completely closed that door yet. I would like to see them continue with Draft Packs if they’re wanting to move away from gravity feeds. I’m not a fan of Draft Packs, but having one or two sets a year in the Draft Pack style would be okay with me since they’re focusing more on fixed product.

There is also an absence of OP Kits, which makes me super sad. I’m hoping that they’re making them and they just haven’t put them on the solicits page yet.

I like a lot of DC content, though I’ve not read Justice, and I probably should. I’m not familiar with the art used on the box in relation to that series, so it’s likely I could have mixed up one series with another. I love the art on that box though, and I am looking forward to seeing the art on the cards if they’re all Alex Ross art! That Batman looks amazing!

I’m not familiar with Doom Patrol at all, but I know a few locals that enjoy the series. I’m familiar with a few of the characters listed and I hope they have some fun versions. The same goes for the Mystics Team Pack. I know very little about Black Adam and Shazam! within the continuity of the comics, and I know practically nothing about Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. I look forward to learning more about these characters and having a chance to use them!

What do you think of these products?
