What kind of Wow Souvenir do you want?

Sometimes I wish I was more of a Star Wars fan
They get lego **
An Alarm clock
Hans Solo & R2-D2 Icecube trays
Lightsabers
Yoda.
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
Tardis Cookie Jars ( talking cookie Jar  oh yeah baby)
Desktop Daleks
Sometimes I wish I was more into original Trek ( I like VOY DS9 and working my through Next Gen)
Cardboard cut outs
Drink Bottles
Pizza Cutters and Bottle openers
Trek Bathrobes
Toy Tricorders

Sometimes I wished I played or loved other Computer Games as well.

They also get cool wall decals
USB Sticks
Plush Companion Cubes
Plush Pillows
Headcrabs
Foam Pickaxes
Cookie cutters
Iphone cases
Bookends
 and so on……
Sure we have a varying range of T-shirts and over time we have/have had
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.
And Printwarcraft does, posters, Custom posters and mouse mats
I am also so excited about the Warcraft themed Monopoly

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.
But most of the recent merchandise available to us from Blizzard has been electronic only, and even with a shrinking playerbase – they ‘tripled their profit’ and I don’t think these E pets/mounts hurt that line one little bit.
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?
Probably not.
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 🙂
