Mantic Games are on a roll it seems when it comes to their comic book licenced games. Previewed this week, we got a first look at one of the miniatures from The Umbrella Academy game (we assume?) that is on the horizon.

Number One, also known as Spaceboy was the first of the miniatures to pop up over on social media. As you will have no doubt already worked out, this is based on the comic book versions of these characters rather than the ones from the recent TV show.

We should, therefore, expect to see them work to match the rest of the characters from the comic books, some of which are pictured below.

As Mantic said on their social media "This is something different coming later in the year. We'll have more details soon". I would assume that we're going to potentially hear a bit more about what they have planned around GenCon or soon after.

It would be rather fun if this was a cooperative board game similar to the style of Hellboy. I must admit, I only really know The Umbrella Academy from the TV show so I'm unfamiliar as to how it would work in an investigation-style setting akin to Hellboy.

Either way, the miniatures themselves should be great to see come to life. We've seen some seriously good sculpts from Mantic Games for Hellboy and The Walking Dead in the past.

What do you think?
