Well, at least some goodies. Blizzard has just made a small sneak preview of the Goodie Bag that will be handed out during BlizzCon 10-11 October in Anaheim, California this year. We are told of three items, all three of them related to WoW:
Get your own 16” (41cm) inflatable Divine Shield, with a Paladin Hearthstoning out.
OR… (yes, you can get EITHER the Paladin OR…)
Frosmourne – Inflatable
A 48” (122cm) inflatable runeblade for thwacking your friends.
Polar-Bear-Riding Baby Murloc
This year’s Murloc is attached to a ?ber-cool Polar Bear mount that you can ride, waving his BlizzCon flag for all to see.
The goodie bag will contain more goodies to be announced (and hopefully something cool for the other franchises as well, a StarCraft Trinket or a StarCraft soulstone, perhaps?), and plenty of merchandise will be available from Blizzard’s partners, including Diablo health and mana stress balls, pandaren brewmaster bottle openers, zerg creep, Diablo and much more.
Remember! Tickets will be released on 11th of August. That’s the Monday after this one.
For everyone contemplating a trip to this year’s BlizzCon (October 10-11 in Anaheim, California), we’d like to give you a glimpse of just a few items you might find in your goody bag when you arrive at the show.
If you’ve ever been on the verge of finishing off a paladin, only to be foiled at the last second, you’ll appreciate the 16” inflatable divine shield ball, complete with a paladin inside in the midst of hearthing away. Half of the goody bags handed out will contain the bubble-hearth ball, while the other half will have…
Frostmourne. The very name of Arthas’s runeblade strikes terror into hearts across Azeroth. Now it comes to you in a more convenient package, and you don’t even have to travel to Icecrown Glacier to get it. As you go about your daily activities, whether they be raising legions of the undead or just brooding on your throne, carrying this 48” inflatable Frostmourne will grant you an extra touch of sinister majesty.
That’s just the beginning, though, as both the goody bags and the on-site store will be stuffed with sample products from our licensed partners and plenty more fun and unique Blizzard-themed trinkets, such as Diablo health and mana stress balls, pandaren brewmaster bottle openers, zerg creep, and much more.
And of course, a new BlizzCon brings with it a lovable murloc to welcome into your heart—but murlocs don’t always come alone. This one has developed a taste for speed, and sits astride an exclusive polar bear mount, waving a BlizzCon flag. It’s the perfect way to cruise Northrend in style.
BlizzCon features an array of contests, tournaments, discussion panels, hands-on playtime, and other events, not to mention plenty more treasures waiting to be unearthed from the goody bag, so make your plans now before tickets go on sale August 11.[/BLUE]
