  • Predator - Released with "The Lab" expansion set, the second collectors set complimented the first and consists of Predators and the surviving human from AVP. Again, no characters seen in Predator or Predator 2 will be present in this set unless they were also seen in AVP.

HeroClix Crossovers

  • Marvel Zombie Figures: Four Ultra-rare chase figures are available in 1 out of every 100 Marvel Comics Heroclix Supernova boosters: Captain America, Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Hulk. These are technically the first dual-branded figures as they appear in a Heroclix set yet come packed with Horrorclix monster cards, making them fully compatible. These four figures will not be reprinted as they appeared in this set in the 2007 Marvel Zombies set.
  • Mutations & Monsters, the upcoming new set from Heroclix will also feature some Marvel Zombies (Iron Man and Spiderman having been confirmed already), but nothing has been confirmed about compatibility to the Horrorclix game (double stat cards). It has been suggested these figures won't be compatible at all, in spite of their Supernova predecessors.
