Collectible Warcraft Figures

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

It's official - Warcraft in all of its forms is one of the best games to have ever been brought into existence. This is amply supported by the large number of players who grace the world of Azeroth not to mention the large number of the games which have sold over the years. And when you add to this beautiful melee such a thing as collectible Warcraft figures you have pure genius on your hands.

This is admittedly one of their better moves, as fans of Warcraft, past and present will all rush to grab their very own Warcraft figures. To someone who has not played Warcraft before it might be bewildering to see so many grown men and women immersed in a fantasy where they have to go around looting, plundering and fighting.

It is unfortunately not something that can be adequately explained until you play the game and get Warcraft in your blood. When you do, you will surely understand the lure that collectible Warcraft figures will have on the Warcraft fanatic.

This even applies to Warcraft members who have hung up their fighting swords, put away their potions and spells, and have instead returned to the mundane world of Earth. Owning delightful memorabilia only enhances the entire Warcraft experience for everyone concerned.

To begin with though, these collectible Warcraft figures were introduced to the playing public through Fantasy Flight Games, with World of Warcraft: the Board Game. They offered to their fans who pre-ordered the board game, a chance to get 1 of 16 Rare Edition Bronze figures of their favorite Warcraft figures.

Since there was such a tremendous demand for these figures, Fantasy Flight Games then got together with Blizzard (the creators of Warcraft) to bring to the world a Limited Edition set of these same 16 Warcraft figures previously released as Rare Editions.

There was however, to be a difference in these Limited Edition Warcraft figures in that, as opposed to the black felt which lined the base of the Rare Edition Warcraft figures, there would be a green felt lining instead.

And on the rim of the circular disk on which each of the figures are standing, the Limited Edition Warcraft figures will sport a "ULTD" mark where the Rare Edition Warcraft figures have no markings whatsoever.

And the beauty of this lies in the fact that, while only 300 sets of the Rare Edition Warcraft figures were cast, the Limited Edition sets will be cast an unlimited number of times. And if that seems confusing, read on.

This unlimited Limited Edition casting of the sets of Warcraft figures will only happen for the time frame of one year in which they will be made available to the public. Also, these Limited Edition Warcraft figures can only be bought through the Fantasy Flight Games online store until March 31st 2007. And therein lies it's limited availability.
