Info on the mechanics:
http://pressganger.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/marvel-universe-miniature-game-rules.html


Highlights:

- Everything is based on Power; models have a Power stat that basically determines how many actions they can perform each turn, it can be used to move, attack or overcharge attacks/abilities. Movement is done in inches.

- Attacks come in Physical, Engery, Mental and Supernatural types, stuff like Laser or Freeze are additional effects, and interact with weaknesses and resistances. Attacks also come in 3 types, unlimited availability, once per turn and once per game. Basic mechanic is 2D8 vs Defence, you can Overcharge for 1 Power to add 1D8 to the roll. Doubles are Crits and do +1 Damage

- Non-combat powers such as healing and boosts are in as Active and Reactive powers, used in your turn and the enemy turn respectively.

- Damage is tracked on an Endurance bar, models on low health have a chance to become Knocked Out, models that lose all their health are removed from play.

- Finally, and this is literally the best thing ever, terrain is fully interactive; the stronger the character, the bigger the objects that you can throw at your enemies and smash through, Friendly and enemy models can also be thrown!


This all sounds perfect! Can't wait for more info!

Thanks for the encouragement everyone!

First post updated with some links. Will add the pic of the latest release in a bit.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Pics added to the first post. From each we can see some of the new releases:

First pic shows a previously unreleased Colossus (likely to be a part of the X-Men set) and Stark Industries shipping container.

The second shows a previously unreleased Drax (likely to be a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy set) and a revised Black Widow (Avengers set).

Pretty interesting to me that they have already moved away from the previous Black Widow sculpt.

That new BW is really nice; I kind of liked the old one, but this one definitely seems a more dynamic sculpt. Colossus looks great, as does Drax.

Since Thor, Iron Man and Wolverine have appeared in this pics, do you reckon we can expect to see them in the starters in their original form?

You know, I was just thinking about their larger scale models that they originally started producing, and in 70 mm they already have Captain Marvel, Ghost Knight, Phoenix, Sabertooth, Black Cat, and Red Skull...

That's a pretty effective pose for Widow. Nothing crazy, but a good neutral pose. That rocket is awesome, I have a feeling I won't be able to resist getting some of these for long..

Of those I already own Harley and might want to pick up Riddler and Scarecrow at some point. It won't be too bad ordering from KM directly personally although I prefer my discount but it's not great for non European players.

Thinking about it, the Adam West Batman being there means we're unlikely to get the rest of '66.

Hope to see Fantastic Four soon. The movies might suck but the team is still awesome ...and them fighting Mole Man would be too cool (moloids all over the place how cool would that be!?!?)

I'm hoping Wave 2 brings us some villains. It's all well and good to have the heroes fight amongst themselves for a bit (that is par for the course, after all, especially with this year's film slate! ), but we need some nefariousness in here! Fingers crossed for a Brotherhood Of Mutants team with Magneto, Toad, Juggernaut/Blob and Mystique!

Well, other than the Spider-Man villains, we have Magneto, Thanos, and Loki available. That's some significant power to build around.

drazz do you have any idea if the broader Marvel game will be structured around the idea of "gangs" or is it going to go in a different direction?

Apparently Hendybadger on the Pressganger blog I liked above is doing a piece on factions and team structure tomorrow, but if Drazz can answer sooner then so much the better! I'm hoping it'll be fairly 'free' on who works with who, so I can put Spidey and Wolverine in my Avengers or team up Loki and Doom...

No news on "crew," "band," or alignment for creation.

I'm speculating here, but I think characters will be limited to certain groups in some way, whether Good vs. Bad or team membership is unknown right now.

I do think we're going to see a move away from the BMG ranks of Leader, Sidekick, Free Agent and Henchmen. I think characters will have a level, and therefore a band will have a certain level limit to build toward.

We have already seen from Tales that levels will range from 4 to 20. Thanos at the top and Black Widow at 4?

Nah, Thanos will be 19. They'll be saving 20 for Squirrel Girl. I wonder what the 'standard' level limit will be? It was mentioned that the standard team size is 4-7 models, so assuming a mid point of 5, and a mid Level of 12, that'd be a limit of 60-ish.

It does sound like the gameplay here might be a lot simpler than BMG, and that sounds quite appealing actually, BMG is great but if this is a little more streamlined, perhaps less in-depth then that could help it a lot.

Every character in the game will be assigned a power level, not sure if people are restricted to their own teams or not, I'd assume so, so say for instance Black Widow is a 5 or 6, someone like Hulk is a 20

Knight Models is not that bad in terms of shipping models in a timely manner, but shipping charges for international orders are always expensive right now. In the past, they used to have a free shipping threshold, but I don't know if there is one since the new webstore.

Info on factions, team-building and such:
http://pressganger.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/marvel-universe-factions-and-team.html

Basically, everyone has a Faction and Alignment. Factions at launch are Superhuman, Mutant and Cosmic correlating to the 3 initial teams. Alignments are as you might expect, Hero, Villain and Neutral. Some have dual factions, for example Wolverine is Hero, Superhuman/Mutant, while Colossus is only Hero, Mutant. Can repeat characters, but not individuals (eg you can have Miles Morales and Peter Parker both as Spidey, but not Iron Man and Hulkbuster as both are Stark). Power limits for games are 30-50, there are levels given as an example, but it mentions those might not be final or even correct.

Also, a pic of what we can assume will be the X-men starter:


4 nice models there, I look forward to picking that one up.

Pretty classic x-men team it seems like. I like the downed sentinel scenery too

Points sound nice and easy, no finicking with upgrades from the look of it.

In the comments on the blog, Hendybadger has confirmed that is indeed the contents of the X-men starter, and hinted that pics of the other two may well be showing up there next week.

From what we're being shown I would presume that the Avengers starter will be
Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow

Guardians
Rocket, Drax, Star Lord, and Gamora (though I'd love for it to be Groot)
