Toy News International reports
that the World of Warcraft
action figures from DC Direct
are coming in the last quarter of this year. I love my toys and I love WoW so this comes as great news, particularly with the new selection of figures -- a Blood Elf Paladin
named Quin'thalan Sunfire (hell yeah!); Tamuura, a Draenei Mage
; an Undead Rogue
called Skeeve Sorrowblade; and a Human Priest
, Sister Benedron, who can probably cure your allergies
. As with previous World of Warcraft action figures from DC direct, the sculpts are mostly based on existing armor sets that players might recognize.
Tamuura sports the Tier 6 raid set Tempest Regalia
, while Sister Benedron is depicted in Tier 5 Avatar
gear with exaggerated shoulder wings; Skeeve Sorrowblade appears
to be wearing a highly-detailed version of Deathmantle
, the Rogue Tier 5 set; and Quin'thalan Sunfire looks... well, he looks like he's a generic Silvermoon City
guard whom you ask for directions. It's a bit disappointing, personally, although I guess it's cool to have a Silvermoon City guard. It would be kind of like having a named Stormtrooper
or something. Historically, DC Direct's action figures have appeared in the World of Warcraft comic
, so expect one or more of these new figures to make an appearance in the Chris Metzen
-approved canon comic series.
More pictures after the jump. So clickety-click, toy lovers (and uh, WoW fans)...
