This article is about the 2003 collectible miniatures game. For other uses, see Shadowrun (disambiguation).

Shadowrun Duels is a collectible miniatures game that was produced by WizKids, based on the Shadowrun role-playing game originally produced by FASA Corporation.

WizKids is most famous for their Clix system games, and Shadowrun Duels is a large scale variant of those games. In most Clix games the miniatures are 28mm scale, and the base has one clickable wheel that changes the figures characteristics as they take damage in the game.

The figures used in Shadowrun Duels are 1:12 scale (1 inch = 1 foot) action figures with a separate base that has three Clix dials. This lets the figures take damage in one of three areas (Head, Weapon, or Body) as they fight in the game.

One criticism of the game was the cost of the figures, which while expensive as individual game pieces, were reasonably priced as action figures. Despite this a player only needed one or two figures to play the game.

When the game was announced there were going to be three releases of six figures each. The third series was never produced due to the low sales of the first two series. However, a series of cards that can give figures a bonus were given out as convention and tournament bonuses.

As of 2010, the rights to the game are in the hands of Topps, which bought WizKids in 2003, and then sold WizKids—but not the Shadowrun property—in 2009.
