Default Marvel Update and Marvel Chess

just looked at Midtown Comics and there's something about Eaglemoss doing a magazine called Marvel Update and they showed some of the pieces of the Marvel chesspieces. anyone heard anything about this. according from my LCS, it's just a mag and sometimes it'll include a Special (a lead figure) to accompany the mag. look for the list of the chesspieces, no such luck.

wow, terrible selection. IMO the Invisible Woman should have been the white queen.
this looks more like the Avengers chess rather than the Marvel.

If you see the collection thread in new posts, it's because new pics have been added.

No Hulk either. Pics are surprisingly hard to come by. Here is a link to one.

just came from the comic store and just picked up the Marvel Fact Files. this is just the over-sized Who's Who from DC. can't remember the exact title though. think it's up to no. 4. looks good. no. 1 comes with a binder.
