Watch the first World of Warcraft Mega Bloks commercial

World of Warcraft Mega Bloks hit store shelves back in August, but Mega Bloks has only just revealed the first commercial for the product lineup. The commercial, which you can watch above, shows off the currently available sets, including Deathwing's Stormwind Assault and Goblin Zeppelin Ambush.

Can you guess what happens when you lose your digital camera the night before you receive a preview set of the newly released World of Warcraft Mega Bloks? If you guessed the preview gets delayed by two weeks while you desperately search for your camera before breaking down and buying a new one, you're right!

The most common gripe people seem to have with World of Warcraft licensed Mega Bloks isn't an actual critique of the product -- it's the fact that people want LEGOs rather than Mega Bloks.

They just happen to meet somewhere in the middle.
