Toys of the Week: World of Warcraft Series 2


While we’re on the subject of fantasy PC gaming, I might as well tell you that it looks like most online stores have their shipments of DC Direct’s second World of Warcraft figures. Even if you’re not a fan of the game, these things are gorgeously sculpted, and their paint schemes are out of this world. This set includes the human warrior Archilon Shadowheart, the troll priest Zabra Hexx, the gnome warrior Sprocket Gyrospring and Broll Bearmantle, the Night Elf Druid, and all of whose names make me giggle when I read them. You can order the full set at Entertainment Earth for $72.
