Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne are just rich dudes, but they’re rich dudes with crazy suits. The same can’t be said for Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Morgan Spurlock, and Harry Knowles, but starting next month, they can all fight toe to toe. The celebrities behind Comic-Con The Movie Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope will be receiving their own HeroClix figures, so if your table starts to look like “Wargames of the Rich and Famous,” this should explain why.

In order to bring the set of unlikely superheros into your game, you’ll have to head down to your local game or comic shop. The Comic-Con The Movie Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope HeroClix Combo Pack will be a brick-and-mortar hobby store exclusive, retailing for $29.99 and including both a copy of the film on DVD and the set of four HeroClix figures.

Stan Lee can use his powers of scrip writing and crowd weaving to take on the superheros of his own creation.

If HeroClix isn’t your bag, though, two action figure versions of the combo pack will also be available, one at Comic Con itself (packaged with Stan Lee and Harry Knowles figures) and another exclusive to Toys R Us (packaged with Morgan Spurlock and Joss Whedon).

On the other side of the coin, if you happen to be at Comic Con and HeroClix is your game, be sure to pick up the Colossal Giant Man booster!
