Mantic Games announced in 2013 it would license Mars Attacks for its line of tabletop games. The company has been hard at work on Mars Attacks related products ever since and has just announced details for a new wave of products.
Mars Attacks: Extermination
Mars Attacks: Extermination is an expansion for Mantic’s Mars Attacks – The Miniatures Game and will contain 27 pre-assembled colored plastic figures including 11 Science Division figures, 10 Tiger Corps figures, and 2 Giant Mutant Bugs, each with handler, plus Craig and Tunga, heroes for the human faction exclusive to this boxed set. The expansion also includes a comic-book sized rulebook containing all of the rules for the third wave miniatures and ten new narrative scenarios. Note that a copy of Mars Attacks: The Miniatures Games is required to use this expansion. The suggested retail price for the Mars Attacks: Extermination expansion is $64.99 (£39.99 in the U.K.)
Mars Attacks: Giant Robot
Mantic tells us the Mars Attacks: Giant Robot is designed by the Science Division as a shock and awe vehicle. “Giant Robots are an inelegant but powerful weapon in the Martian invasion effort” notes the press release. It continues “Standing over twenty feet tall, their weapon arms are almost a secondary consideration on Earth, their size and bulk allowing them to simply stomp on or through most human forces with relative ease. When they do power up their arm weapons, the forces of humanity have learned to run, and quickly.”
The Mars Attacks: Giant Robot stands at 7” tall and comes with a choice of two pilots, a clear plastic dome and a variety of weapons, including Heat Ray, Freeze Ray, and Giant Claw. There is also a Shrink Ray arm and a set of miniaturized human soldiers includes in the kit as well. The suggested retail price for the Mars Attacks: Giant Robot is $39.99 (£24.99 in the U.K.)
