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.

If you're curious as to the quality of the products, WoW Insider has previously previewed the Goblin Zeppelin Ambush set, which should tell you what you need to know.

Mega Bloks offer 10% off to celebrate Mists launch!

Mega Bloks offer 10% off to celebrate Mists launch!
In celebration of the launch of Mists of Pandaria, Mega Bloks have been kind enough to inform us that for a limited period they are offering 10% off on all purchases of World of Warcraft Mega Bloks sets with a spend of $50 or more.

To get this offer, you need to head over to coupons.com and grab the coupon, then get shopping for Mega Blocks and build your own Theramore scenario with as many opening quests as you like!

If you're wondering what these Mega Bloks things are all about, WoW Insider's very own Alex Ziebart recently wrote a complete account of his construction of a fairly awesome goblin zeppelin, rather similar to the one that dropped the mana bomb on Theramore. And back in July, we had a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the Mega Bloks creative process, as well as a preview of the first season of Mega Bloks sets!

World of Warcraft Mega Bloks season 1 revealed

Remember way back when Mega Bloks announced that it was creating a line of Warcraft sets? Which lore pieces would make for the best building block sets? Which characters did we want to see? Well, season 1 of the Mega Bloks Warcraft line has been revealed, and it is amazing. One of the larger sets includes Deathwing and Stormwind, where you can recreate your favorite cinematic moments from Cataclysm!

Faction packs include Ironoak the night elf, Ragerock the orc, Valoren the blood elf, and the ever-exciting and fancily named Colton the human paladin. Mount packs include Swift Gryphon with worgen rider, Goblin Trike with goblin rider, Flying Machine with gnome pilot, and Swift Wyvern with tauren rider. There are also three other larger sets, including the Lich King and Sindragosa, Demolisher Attack Horde versus Alliance, and the Goblin Zeppelin.

However, my favorite set of them all (and proof that the folks over at Mega Bloks play World of Warcraft, are Warcraft fans, and understand the nature and feel of this game) is The Barrens Chase Set. The Barrens Chase set is the quintessential WoW setup -- dorky night elf riding his cat in hot pursuit across The Barrens, chasing the most awesome orc on the planet, riding a rocket. This is World of Warcraft at its best.

Check out all of the new sets in our gallery, and look for them in stores soon.

Blizzard teams up with Mega Bloks for Warcraft and StarCraft sets

Big Blizzard licensing news -- Blizzard has teamed up with MEGA Brands, Inc. to release Warcraft- and StarCraft-themed Mega Bloks sets. You might remember the Halo Mega Bloks sets as another of Mega Bloks' video game releases. These are Blizzard's two largest franchises, so it's a pretty substantial acquisition for Mega Bloks.

What is most interesting to me about this licensing partnership is Blizzard's consolidation and general changing strategy regarding the World of Warcraft and StarCraft intellectual properties. In South Korea, StarCraft is already on everything you can imagine, and licensing in general is one of Blizzard's biggest assets (as it is for most content creators.) Does this licensing deal signal a renewed push to put Warcraft and StarCraft on lots of new, carefully hand-picked products? Suffice to say, I am excited about Blizzard's licensing future.

The sets are scheduled for release in summer 2012. We have no news on what characters or settings will be featured in the sets, but our imaginations can happily wander. Will we get vehicles? Iconic location play sets? Lore exposition in block form? I've got a few ideas...
