BlizzCon 2015 Warcraft Movie Collectibles Unveiled

Many of our staff are at BlizzCon, and we wish to share with you photos of 22 new Warcraft Movie licensed products never seen before. Some of these are coming as soon as Spring 2016 or May 2016. Take a look at our 44 photos after the list (4 pages of photos).

CORRECTION: Originally, I reported all these products were from the WETA booth. I was informed of my mistake. There are four companies involved in the production of these Warcraft Movie Collectibles: WETA, Gentle Giant Ltd, Jakks Pacific, and Maybang’s Collectibles.

The following statues are produced by Gentle Giant Ltd: Gul’dan, Durotan, Orgrim and Lothar. The Gul’dan Skull Scale Replica 3D Print too. Pre-order them here.

BlizzCon 2015 – Warcraft Movie Official Gallery

Legendary Pictures added a photo gallery to the official Warcraft Movie website. You can watch the official movie trailer here.

The first photo shows us an amazing render of Durotan that resembles the Blizzard Cinematic Quality but realism has been pushed even further. I mean look at the realism of his hair and ponytails. On his shoulders you can see every single body hair hit by sunlight, contrasting against the darker background. I mean: HOLY SHIT? The handle of his weapon, the texture of the leather around the handle. The necklace. The ornamental wrappings with the fangs or claws. The scars on his body, the chest hair. This feels and breaths realism.


Legendary Released 15-sec Warcraft Movie Teaser

Legendary released today a 15-sec Warcraft Movie Teaser announcing that: “War is Coming.” The trailer will be unveiled globally on Friday, November 6th at BlizzCon 2015.

Below you can watch the Warcraft Movie Teaser and 15 screenshots taken from the video showing some never-before-seen frames from the movie. Look at that huge wolf jumping on a knight riding a horse, then get tossed off the horse with the footman’s head trapped in the wolf’s jaws.

NYCC 2015 – WETA Warcraft Movie Armor Props

WETA brought some of the armor and weapon sets used in the Warcraft Movie to New York Comic Con. In addition, the WETA Warcraft Movie 1:6 scale armor replicas to be sold in 2016 were displayed too.

Currently, WETA has announced the King Llane Armour and Alliance Soldier 1:6 scale armor replicas; and there was a NYCC Show Special sale of two collectable pins: Warcraft Horde and Alliance for $10 each.

Weapons & Armour

Working with designs supplied by LEGENDARY, WETA Workshop’s manufacturing team created working physical props and costumes. It was great fun to take weapons and armour out of the gaming realm and make them real!

84 full suits of gleaming armour were produced for the film’s royal guards and foot soldiers, along with hundreds of weapons and shields.

Hero suits and weapons were crafted for featured characters including King Llane Wrynn I.

Blades were made in both hero steel and lightweight materials. WETA’s paint team worked their magic, bringing real-world treatments and finishes to armour and weapons produced in lightweight materials so that real human actors could look awesome wielding huge weapons and wearing giant suits of gleaming armour!

SDCC 2015: WETA Workshop talks about Warcraft Movie 1:6 Armor Replicas

A week after SDCC 2015, WETA Workshop shared via newsletter a video by Gamespot. Mike Gonzales said all the armor and weapons on display at SDCC were part of the Warcraft Movie scenes. The armor on display at the WETA booth was specifically used for the Royal Guard of Stormwind (view our SDCC 2015 Legendary booth photos). In this video, we get a closer look at the Warcraft Movie 1:6 scale armor replicas that WETA plans to have for sale in 2016 after the movie goes live.

SDCC 2015 – Warcraft Movie Panel

Sadly, the person I assigned to go to the “SDCC 2015 – Warcraft Movie Panel” spent two hours in line before everyone was told there was no more room. My heart deflated. I have heard Duncan Jones fed and handed away lots of twinkies to late-campers who waited in line since last night. So I can understand the line was pretty huge as the panel schedule approached.

SDCC 2015 Warcraft Movie – i09 Interviews Duncan Jones

i09 had the opportunity to interview Duncan Jones at SDCC 2015 to talk about the Warcraft Movie. The movie is pretty much done. Duncan is waiting for 10 VFX shots to be added to the movie, and then all he has left to do is clench his fists, and grind his teeth while geekily waiting until June 2016 for this project to be shared with the public.
