Sometimes I wish I was more of a Star Wars fan
An Alarm clock
Hans Solo & R2-D2 Icecube trays
Poker chip Set
Jedi and Sith Bathrobes
Sometimes I wish I was more of a Doctor Who fan
They get Sonic screwdrivers
Tardis Coffee Mugs
Sometimes I wish I was more into original Trek ( I like VOY DS9 and working my through Next Gen)
Cardboard cut outs
Sometimes I wished I played or loved other Computer Games as well.
Plush Companion Cubes
and so on……
Mugs Badges, Keyrings, Caps, keyboard key sets, themed Mouse, headset, guild t-shirts, Coin sets, plush Murlocs, Wind Riders, and Gryphon Hatchlings, normal figurines and these strange things called noobzs
? and replicate weapons, custom figure prints, elf ears, and Orc masks.
I Love my little weapons ( un-sharpened) of course they aren’t official, or even great quality, and the site doesn’t sell them anymore.
I love my holy priest figurine
I do not need any more stuffed animals. ( Wts massive penguin I won from a skill tester )
But the reality is I probably wouldn’t buy a Warcraft themed pizza cutter
My cat would use a cardboard cut out as a scratching post untill she knocked it down, and then she would sit on it.
I don’t use shot glasses anymore? Why shot when you can drinking from the bottle eh. ( kidding) but I have outgrown “Lets do cowboy shots!”
I do not have room on my bookshelves to waste space with book ends.
I would most likely store pasta in a cookie Jar
And I like my satin dressing gowns. Much more lady-like then brown or bright blue terry towelling.
There is much less effort than sourcing, designing and licensing a physical product.
All you need to do is see how many players are either riding a sparkling pony, a winged guardian, or a Heart of the aspects being chased around, by one of the purchased pets, to see just how many are forking out for virtual goods..
Would the same amount of people buy a Thrall head cookie Jar? Maybe a Priest staff shaped icecube tray, an outland cooking book?
What would we buy – just because it had the Warcraft brand on it. What do you want as a Souvenir for a hobby, or interest such as wow?
Something useful, something wearable, something to cuddle, something to eat?
What I would like.
Custom Vinyl Wall decal of my Main toon. *nods. I would like this very much and would pay for it, even if I hid it on the inside of my closet door.
Note Books /Moleskines ( have I told you I have a small notebook Fetish)
A Stuffed Shadow fiend?
Something practical that I can dig out of the kitchen draw in 20 years time and laugh about,
Something for a kid to pull out of a draw and say Muuuum did you really wear that? ( I have one of my dad’s old tshirts from a team sport he used to play in which is older than I am)
I think as an interest WOW has gone on long enough for me to want to keep something to show or reflect that interest when I am old and grey, and we are playing our own avatars in a 3d world with augmented reality.
I have no shame. I use my Star trek drinking bottle at work 🙂
