| Blizzard Entertainment Establishes High-End Collectibles Line |
With internationally acclaimed franchises such as World of Warcraft and Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment is known for creating larger-than-life fantasy and sci-fi settings and characters that have been enjoyed by millions. The company is pleased to announce today the creation of Blizzard Collectibles, a new line of premium statues, replicas, and artwork designed and produced directly by Blizzard.
The Blizzard Collectibles line launches with multiple existing pieces, including the Hearthstone® Collectible Keepsake Box, Grommash Hellscream and Illidan Stormrage from the Warcraft universe, and statues of Overwatch’s Tracer and Reaper. The next exciting addition to this line also comes from the cast of Overwatch—starting today, players can preorder the imposing Widowmaker statue for $150 USD at gear.blizzard.com/blizzard-collectibles. Standing 13.5 inches tall, this cold-hearted assassin is designed and sculpted by artists on Blizzard’s Overwatch team, and will make a fearsome addition to any collection.
“We tend to go all-in when it comes to representing the things we’re passionate about in our work, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with this new line of high-end statues, replicas, and artwork,” said Matthew Beecher, vice president of global consumer products at Blizzard Entertainment. “Our goal with Blizzard Collectibles is to produce pieces of art that capture the personality of our games, and we’re excited to share these premium items with gamers and collectors worldwide.”
More Blizzard Collectibles releases are planned for 2017; additional details on these will be revealed at a later date. Browse the collection at gear.blizzard.com/blizzard-collectibles.
