Mega Bloks World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft™ is the most popular online game on the planet, with over 10 million players from every country you can imagine. The game takes place in the world of Azeroth, a land of magic, mystery, treasure and adventure. For many decades, war has been waged by two factions: the valiant Alliance and the mighty Horde. Other powerful forces have sought control and destruction, like Arthas the Lich King -- lord of the undead scourge -- and Deathwing, a powerful dragon who shattered the entire world.
Mega Bloks®, a company famous for turning awesome games into awesome building toys, has taken the characters, monsters, vehicles and locations from this digital universe and brought them into the real world with its Mega Bloks® World of Warcraft™ series.
Mega Bloks produces what may be the best miniature figures you can get. They're jam-packed with detailed designs and paint, which is pretty incredible considering they're not even the size of your finger. Much like in the game, each character comes with customizable armor and weapons that you can swap with other figures. Some sets even come with rare "loot" armor pieces that you can collect and trade with your friends!
The Goblin Zeppelin Ambush is one of the coolest and most unique building sets we've ever seen. This horde airship is fully buildable and comes with three cool figures, some rare loot, and a working -- really, it shoots pretty far! -- cannon launcher.
Deathwing's Stormwind Assault is simply incredible, though. Mega Bloks spared no effort in bringing Deathwing to life, a completely buildable beast with over 100 custom-designed parts. As if he wasn't incredible enough on his own, this set recreates his infamous strike against the Alliance's Stormwind Castle. The castle has beautiful marble-effect blocks and statues with gold accents. It also includes a working fireball catapult (sadly, not real fireballs), three more great figs with cool armor and weapons, and of course, more loot.
The whole line is full of incredible stuff. If you love Deathwing, the Sindragosa and the Lich King set recreates another fearsome dragon in buildable form. The mount sets include some really cool vehicles and animals for your warriors to travel on. And if figures are more your thing, the Faction Packs are great sets to collect.
