After being murdered by the death knight Arthas, Sylvanas Windrunner is brought back to life as a “creature of undeath”, therefore stoking and stewing her otherworldly rage against Arthas. Proceeding to rebel against the kingly powers that be, she anoints herself leader of the Forsaken undead, living up to her mythical monikers “Dark Lady”, “Queen of the Forsaken” and “Banshee Queen”. An archetype of nebulous feminine power, Sylvanas is a crucial World of Warcraft persona. This rare, three-inch figurine is a 2013 San Diego Comic Con exclusive, so it’ll be gone quick if you pass it over! Don’t miss out.
The Sixth Series of DC Unlimited’s WORLD OF WARCRAFT figure collection has arrived! Each figure in the series stands at about 6 inches tall (though there are some serious variations between the characters–as you would expect from the different races and types) and they look absolutely great, highly detailed and looking absolutely brilliant–just like the video game designs upon which they’re based. As per usual with each series, you can get this 6th group as individual figures or as a set! Here’s a look at what you’ll be able to snag, now, which will tide you over until the arrival of the next few series of figures (pre-orderable now!) in our collection.
DC Direct’s World of Warcraft figures have already shown themselves to be an impressive line, featuring great sculpting and paintwork and generally being among the first of DC Direct’s items to really stand out from their previous licensing deals (the ones they still have with companies like Mattel–which perennially disappoint). The detail is awesome and even the articulation rarely suffers for design.
So far there have been five series of regular figures, plus premium figures and box sets and all of them have seen great sales among fans of the game, who number in the millions and are often just the kinds of people who can appreciate a well-made toy.
And lucky for them, we’ve put up the pre-orders for the next wave, which includes three new figures and ships in March. Check out our entire World of Warcraft Regular Figure section, featuring series 6’s Magni Bronzebeard, Gibzz Sparklighter and Sylvanas Windrunner, available together or as a set.
