Well, MrBookstorebabe does. And since we're selling them all for 50 cents each at a comic book event, I felt free to use them as a craft supply.
 (HeroClix are small plastic figurines of comic book characters-you can play a game with them, or just collect your favorites. MrB used to work at a comic book store. 'Nuff said.)
So far I have one box with Leonard Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime. And then I made a few shadowbox magnets with odd little jewelry gift boxes.
I used ones where the bases were missing or broken,or ones we had multiples of.
Daredevil and Electra

Big Barda

StarFire, dunno, Moonstone/Meteorite,Fury, IronMan, HobGoblin.

Forbush Man!

The Kingpin! The comics are from a back cover calendar, and every editor/writer/ect's birthday, they have him  saying stuff like 'Mmm, cake!' 'Mmm,ice cream!" Ect. The sides of the box have more of the same.


Excelsior!

What a good use for Hero Clix figures!
I love some of the little shadowboxes, they look like a really cool way to display the figures.  Have you glued them down or used some non-permanent method like blu-tack?

Thank you! Now I need more little jewelry gift boxes... Cheesy
Glued them down! But most of these the bases were damaged or missing, and the others I had multiples.  Bluetac or something like it would be a good idea if you still wanted to be able to game with them.
