WizKids Will Unveil Exclusive Scarab

At this week's San Diego Comic-Con, WizKids will unveil the biggest Clix collectible they've ever created -- a Battle-damaged Covenant Scarab.

WizKids Games is bringing a numbered-to-500 exclusive Battle Damaged Scarab to this week's San Diego Comic-Con. Each day, Wizkids will distribute tickets to interested consumers and then they'll draw tickets at the end of the day -- if your ticket is drawn, you've won the right to purchase the Scarab for $249.99. Because the Comic-Con Scarab is so huge (2 feet by 2 feet), folks who purchase it will receive a mini Scarab box and then the actual Scarab will be shipped directly to your house after Comic-Con (allow 4-6 weeks for shipping).

However, each day, one Scarab owner will get to take theirs home with them that day.

If you miss out on the Battle-Damaged Scarab, there will be a non-battle damaged one showing up at retail later this year. Here's three images of the WizKids Battle-Damaged Exclusive below.

The Bungie Podcast Returns

lukems writes:

We're not joking. The hiatus is over. The end is nigh: The Bungie Podcast is back.

After nearly a year (who really is to blame?), the Bungie Podcast has left the nest and spread its wings. Instead of a bird, it's a fierce dragon and the below download is your seat on the fire-breathing winged beast's back. Joining me this week in the studio are podcast veterans Brian Jarrard and Frank O'Connor, with special guest star Multiplayer Designer Lars Bakken rounding out the four-part harmony. We talk about some of the studio's preparations for E3, Bungie's Technical Lead Chris Butcher stops in for a few minutes and finally, a very special guest phones in to the Bungie Teen Support Line. All of this and more on the Bungie Podcast.

Instead of making you wait for it, Marty's giving Bnet visitors the gift of music. Specifically, the music from the  Halo 3 E3 Trailer -- available now.

Got an email from Marty with an excellent attachment this afternoon. The contents speak for themselves, so I figured I'd share it with you:

"Hey we should put this up on Bnet and make it available.
