World of Warcraft™ Action Figures Coming Soon
Three years have passed since the aftermath of Warcraft® III: The Frozen Throne™, and a great tension now smolders throughout the ravaged world of Azeroth. As the battle-worn races begin to rebuild their shattered kingdoms, new threats, both ancient and ominous, arise to plague the world once again.... Enter the World of Warcraft™!
Blizzard Entertainment®’s highly anticipated massively multiplayer game World of Warcraft is an online role-playing experience set in the award-winning Warcraft universe. Players assume the roles of Warcraft heroes as they explore the game’s diverse cities and wilds, revisiting famous battlefields and questing through vast expanses of uncharted territory. Whether adventuring together or fighting against each other in epic battles, thousands of players will be able to interact online within the same persistent world, forming friendships, forging alliances, and competing with enemies for power and glory.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the upcoming line of World of Warcraft action figures from Blizzard Entertainment and Sota Toys will include the Tauren Shaman, the Undead Warlock, and the Jungle Troll Voodoo Priest. These mystical characters practice wildly different types of magic, but they share a common hatred for the enemies of the Horde!
Tauren Shaman Based in the grassy barrens of central Kalimdor, the Tauren are huge, bestial creatures who cultivate a quiet, tribal society. When roused by conflict, however, they are implacable foes who will use every ounce of their strength to smash their enemies under hoof. Their bond with the Orcs is grounded in the shamanistic heritage of both cultures and fostered by the common interests of serving nature and preserving the balance between the four elements of the world.
Undead Warlock Free from the tyrannical rule of the Lich King and his Scourge, a renegade group of Undead known as the Forsaken now strive to develop a devastating new plague that will eradicate their hated Scourge rivals along with the rest of humanity. To further their dark aims, the Forsaken have allied themselves with the primitive, brutish races of the Horde. Holding no real loyalty for their new comrades, the Forsaken have duped the Horde into joining their battle against the Lich King. Forsaken Warlocks are fueled by a lust for dark power-power that enables them to tap into otherworldly magics, channel destructive energies, and summon fearsome demonic minions.
Jungle Troll Voodoo Priest The vicious Jungle Trolls are renowned for their cruelty and dark mysticism. Barbarous and superstitious, the wily Trolls carry a seething hatred for all other races. One tribe, however, was forced to overcome its prejudices when it encountered the Orc Warchief, Thrall, and his mighty Horde. The Trolls of the Darkspear tribe, long since exiled from their ancestral lands in Stranglethorn Vale, were nearly destroyed by a band of aquatic Murlocs, but Thrall and the Horde managed to save them. In return the grateful Trolls swore an oath of eternal allegiance to the Horde. With their foundation in Voodoo-based magic, the Priests of the Darkspear tribe are as adept at infiltrating the minds of their enemies as they are at mending the wounds of their allies.
The release of these three new action figures will correspond with the launch of World of Warcraft-anticipated to take place toward the end of this year. The figures will ship in attractive blister display packaging and will come with appropriately themed accessories.
