If these were glass I would dig these. They just look so tacky in plastic.

Stoneware not plastic reading is cool.
Seconded. A sturdy glass mug with something appropriately dwarven etched onto it, or even if the mug was plain but had that hammer-shaped handle? I'd buy that and play my dwarf more. ^_^ These just look... I dunno, kind of cheesy.

Also from the site itself...· Massive stoneware mug holds 18oz of you favorite hot beverage.· Handcraft from superior quality fine-grain stoneware.(It should be "Handcrafted" however, but...)

Ok, I should have said, "looks like plastic" They dont look very "epic" or impressive

They are stoneware, very sturdy - I got one of the Orgrimmar mugs for Christmas. Not only does it hold an -obscene- amount of coffee, I could easily knock someone out with it. :D Which of course means it's quality stoneware.

I went to the site to take a closer look, since I too missed that these are stoneware, not plastic. Eh heh heh. The mugs do look better in the larger view, yet somehow... not quite what I'd expect.Okay, here's my issue: they look like ceramics, and that to me says "Fragile." Of all the words to describe a *dwarven* mug, "FRAGILE" should never be on the list! A dwarven mug should look like you can use it in a barfight, as a weapon or a shield, and never have to worry about it breaking! It should look like it holds more than any being should be able to drink and still walk away from the table without hitting the ground before they reach the door! It should look like it was carved straight out of stone!...yes, I think dwarves are awesome and should be properly represented. @_@ Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go shave off the beard I spontaneously grew during this rant.

And it seems Ms. Stickney's post, which happened while I was ranting, has invalidated my entire rant....fittingly enough, I need a drink.

They do look like plastic in the photos at first blush, but the shine on the bottom of the Ironforge mug is a dead giveaway that they're glazed stoneware. I still prefer the epic pricey molded mugs (I'd love to be gifted a Blood of the Horde one) but for $20 you can't expect something that intricate.Plus I'd be afraid to ever drink from a $100 mug. For $20, it's something I'd actvely use.Now, to wait for a TB mug to be made! *sits expectantly*
