    What is this thing?

    Hi everyone.

    Why is there a big-headed mini Lich King with a baby Frostmourne?
    ...Where did this thing come from?

    It's one of the first in a line of chibi-like figurines based on Blizz characters. That was the whole "cute but deadly" tm. Arthas, Diablo, and Starcraft-lady are exclusive to the shwag-bag @ blizzapalooza.

    I wonder if there is any connection between this line of figurines and Heroes of the Storm? The animated trailer had that same kind of cutesy style. Maybe a Skylanders type thing possibly?

    If that's the style they go for artistically in Heroes of the Storm, I might be somewhat inclined to try it just to see how it looks. Otherwise, little interest in yet another MOBA.

    I find the entire statement as cute as the toys.

    But yeah, they're exclusive toys to the Blizzcon bag thingy
