There wasn’t much gaming news from the SDCC, but there is this; the first piece of Diablo III merchandise! It’s a prototype of a Barbarian statue, and he is both old and angry! Better yet, it can be yours for the low pre-order price or $300. They’re only showing the prototype now; the final product will be painted and colorful. See a sample below, or all of the shots in the D3 Merch gallery. The official sales blurb and the product specs:
