Pop! Vinyl's slow war of attrition with my wallet continues with a second run of figures based on World of Warcraft - and this time, the legends of Azeroth come backed by the cutest fallen Aspect of Earth you ever did see. D'aaaw!
Sylvanas Windrunner - oddly the creepiest looking of the lot, considering her company - Thrall in his old Warcraft III armour, and the insanely cute Murloc, all in Funko's usual size. are joined by Deathwing in a 'super sized' 6 inch scale, befitting the monstrosity capable of bringing about the end of the World (of Warcraft) as we know it:
I can't really think of him as an old-god infused mad dragon when he looks SO CUTE. It's hard to take any threat of all burning beneath the shadow of his wings so seriously when he's this adorable. Even better, he'll be in scale with the upcoming 6" Smaug Pop! Vinyl figure, so you can pit the two Dragons against each other for adorable fights to the death. This Deathwing might not be capable of breaking the world, but he might just break my will when it comes to resisting getting into Pop! Vinyls.
The World of Warcraft Wave 2 figures are due for release next month, for the usual price of $10 (Deathwing will cost roughly $16).
