LUTZ, FLORIDA - May 16, 2012 – Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that creates and publishes download-free, browser-based RPGs to over 150 million registered users, is releasing its first action figures, Artix and Sepulchure, from the popular MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds. The action figures are already available at some U.S. Toys "R" Us® stores and will be available at all U.S. Toys "R" Us stores starting May 23rd, 2012. The figures will also be available online on AE's merchandising website HeroMart.com starting May 18th.
In the game world of AdventureQuest Worlds, Artix and Sepulchure are mortal enemies. Artix is a paladin, a warrior of light who specializes in battling evil. Sepulchure is one of the world's most powerful and evil villains who commands a vast army of darkness monsters. To celebrate the release of these collector figures, AQWorlds is doing a series of updates to the Doomwood storyline that will culminate in a battle between Artix and Sepulchure... a battle that only one of them will be able to survive.
Rumor has it the Doomwood releases will explain the significance of the ultra rare black variant versions of the collector figures. There are only 1,000 black variants of each figure in existence. The variants will be sold online at HeroMart.com and in select U.S. Toys "R" Us stores.
To see what the fight in Doomwood might look like, the AQWorlds team teamed up with John Huang of Counter 656 to make a stop-motion video of the action figures in ACTION! The video can been seen on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7EMdB3hpac.
Each action figure comes with an array of in-game items redeemable in-game at www.AQ.com. The Artix action figure comes with a Paladin's Castle (an in-game player house) that is equipped with a trap door to send your foes to the dungeon, a Paladin High Lord Armor, a Paladin High Lord Class, Artix's Helm (a legendary item), High Lord's Battleaxe of Destiny (a weapon), and an achievement for your character page.
The Sepulchure action figure comes with a DoomKnight Fortress (an in-game player house) that is equipped with a trap door to send your foes to the dungeon, a DoomKnight Overlord Armor, a DoomKnight Overlord Class, Sepulchure's Helm (a legendary item), Overlord's DoomBlade (a weapon), and an achievement for your character page.
Aside from the multitude of in-game items and the action figures, each box also contains five rare playing cards to add to your AdventureQuest Worlds: The Anything Goes Battle On Battle Card Game deck. Buy both action figures and add 10 new cards to your deck! The rare black variants of the Artix and Sepulchure collector figures contain the same in-game items and the same cards as the standard collector figures.
The Artix and Sepulchure collector figures will be available in all Toys "R" Us stores in the U.S. starting May 23rd, 2012 and online at HeroMart.com on May 18th, 2012. HeroMart ships orders internationally.
